Upgrading circular saw dust extraction #1: Upgrading circular saw dust extraction

09-02-2017 07:56 AM by Per Isacsson | 1 comment »

I bought a circular saw with a sliding table from China a couple years back. It is a really great saw but some parts you could wish for more. One of the easiest parts to modify is the dust extraction. It does not work very well since the airflow is distributed all over the place. So the question was how to make this better. I friend of mine has a wood working shop there he work professional and with much bigger machines. So I basically paid him a visit and had a lock inside his saw how the du...

Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

American Made #2: Sharpening Table Saw Blades with the Pros - WD Quinn Saw Co

07-30-2017 08:01 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

I went and visited a local saw shop W.D. Quinn saw a few weeks back and watched what it takes to sharpen a saw like a pro. They have been in business since 1903 but have kept ahead of the game and have a truly state of the art facility with MONTROUS machines flown in from Germany to keep them on the cutting edge (cheap dad joke aside) Check out the video of the walkthrough of their sharpening process. Enter the giveaway of a fresh new special edition Wood Work LIFE combination blade if y...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...
