Making Aids To Make A Project

60 days ago by John1410 | 1 comment »

I drew up a plan for a saddle stand that I intend to make a number of times (with three orders at present and, hopefully, more to come!) :-) Because the two end formers are cut to shape and have both 30 degree and 60 degree facets, I needed a simple, repetitive sawing guide. This is it, although I seem to have managed to mix up the order of my photographs…Please forgive me when I give no specific measurements because each one of us has a different saw bench and will need to measure to s...

Bedroom desk #1: Staining

61 days ago by mIps | 0 comments »

My neighbors lent me a desk for a while and, although I didn’t use it a lot (it was a bit small), I did like having it in my room. Since they took it back for their son to use, I’ve really missed having it. So I am going to attempt to build a replacement. I am using the writing desk from WWMM as a template. The sides and back are a glue-up of construction grade 3/4 ply and 5mm ply that I had from previous projects. the center spine is a glue-up of 2 pieces of 5/8” ply. The...

Workshop Projects #8: My Summers Woodworking 2x4 competition entry

62 days ago by Serradura | 4 comments »

Oh well, it was difficult to find a 2×4 in Portugal but… in the end we found two 2×2’s which we used to make little side / plant / coffee /ashtray tables. It’s all about making something out of a 2×4 by 8ft. (about 10×5x244) for the Summers Woodworking annual Creative 2×4 Competition. It all started with the idea of making a little high table (to put a flowerpot on) but during the process proportions didn’t seem wright.So we did what eve...

Craftsman Table Saw 113.298240 Completed

65 days ago by jlabos | 5 comments »

I was able to finish the table saw yesterday. The blade is moving up and down well. The tilting gets a little sticky still some times but I figure that will work its self out. The Blaster Teflon dry lube worked well. The Accu-Link belt from Harbor Freight runs smoothly. I recommend anyone near a Harbor Freight picking one up with a coupon, or ordering one online.I waxed the top with Johnson Wax along with the fence and rails so everything slides smoothly. I was able to align the fence with th...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #1: Getting started in a big way

66 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...

Shop Projects #1: Ridgid R4512 tablesaw fixing and improving

66 days ago by William Shelley | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, first post here on LJ. I’ve done my fair share of lurking and finally decided to sign up. Today I have a few photos of some improvements I made to my Ridgid R4512 hybrid saw. Given that this saw is available at HD and is reasonably priced for a new tool, I imagine I’m not the only hobbyist with one of these and I also imagine every other owner has been a bit peeved with the inherent design flaw of the aluminum extrusions that the fence slides on. In a brilliant log...

Shop Doings #2: Building a Natural Edge Mirror Frame Jewelry Rack

66 days ago by SalvageCraft | 4 comments »

Hi LJ’s, I’m finally starting to work through some of the wood stores I’ve had lying around for years. With the new shop setup, I’ve got more efficiency in my workspace than I’ve ever had (and a lot more plans to continue improving the setup to come). This past Mother’s Day, my mom shared her new found passion for whittling with me. We had a nice time sitting out in the yard of my sister and brother in-law’s beautiful country home picking out ...

Today's progress on the Craftsman 113.298240

69 days ago by jlabos | 1 comment »

After sanding the cast iron top with some 150 and 220 grit sand paper I decided to try the advice of EEngineer. I came across an old bottle of Naval Jelly that belonged to my grandfather so I applied some and let it sit for 10-15 minutes and here’s the result. I never used the product before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It took off a lot of rust so I am happy with the results. There is only a small amount of rust that I will need to sand. I can jump to a higher grit san...

Got some pieces of the table saw cleaned up

70 days ago by jlabos | 5 comments »

So here are the wings all cleaned up. I worked with 100, 220, 500, 1000, and then 1200 grit sand paper. I wet sanded the gray painted area and it cleaned up well so I don’t think I will be painting them. I think that they will shine with some wax. There was one small area that I hand to sand down to the metal because there was some sticky gunk stuck to it. The insert had some deep scratches in it so I sanded it down and painted it. The blade guard cleaned up real nice. ...
