I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...
After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...
Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...
I love my Shopsmith|I hate my Shopsmith. It’s a couplet familiar to any owner of that beguiling piece of machinery. When they work, they’re a great tool. When they break, they’re rather annoying. My Shopsmith’s particular failing is in the alignment of its pulley sheaves. They tend to become misaligned at high speed, which is no great issue when I’m using the table saw. But, when I need to slow it down the sheaves don’t mesh and I end up pushing out the thr...

I’m back with an all new project video. I hope you check it out. http://youtu.be/OGGLeztLAssHow do I post the video onto the page here?
I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...
This is my 1958 Delta Rockwell Super 900 Radial Arm Saw. Purchased in the winter for $50 (in working condition) complete overhaul included grinding all cast iron components and paint (3 stage paint) , polishing all aluminum components and a complete rewire. Did this as a Father’s Day gift.
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...
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...
