http://youtu.be/LB-jLaQjzxA Well the journey on this project is nearing the end…
Okay, so I couldn’t leave it alone. Sue me. It all started when I brought down to the dungeon the multi-purpose base I originally made for the router table, then added mounts to for the Delta 36-510 table saw I bought used earlier this year. I decided with a little bit of room to move around down there I would once again see if the arbor bearing was really as bad I as had thought before. For testing I mounted a spare Skilsaw 10” 28T combination blade. I made no adjustments to t...
Here’s a tablesaw that is listed for sale on University of Wisconsin surplus. Does anyone have any thoughts about how old? Or do you think it might be someone’s homemade tool? We thought it looked rather interesting, but unsafe.
So I traded a .270 weatherby and 300$ for an old rockwell unisaw that was just refurbished by its previous owner. I got it dialed in when I discovered the top was warped when I went to cut some tenons to test it out. Needless to say, this was a big problem. A machine shop wanted 400$ to surface grind .010 off, but even then the heat could still warp it. There were also no shop with a Blanchard grinder from laffayette to houma to New Orleans with the capacity to do it, that were willing...
The table gets big square feet with a slight taper. I cut some 8/4 oak then mitered it at 45 deg, glued the miter, crosscut to 2.5” then tapered at 10 deg on the table saw. I then ran a slight roundover on each edge with the router table. I didn’t take many progress pictures, just results. Can you see the joint in this miter? :-) I placed a piece of the bottom trim on top of the feet to get an idea what it would look like.
11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...
I started with a scrap of 1/2 MDF big enough to get both sides of the outrigger. I believe the measurements were 48” long, 16” high at the end next to the saw, and 12” high at the outer end. This picture shows how I laid it out: I began by ripping down a Douglas fir 2×12 into strips about 2 3/8” wide. I used this for my framing around the edges.I left the small end open and laid the 40 X 80 mm extrusion in the center parallel to the side that was...
The next step was the Oak table it is 2” thick X 13” wide and around 80” long. I started by selecting some oak that would easily rip into 2 3/8” strips. I think I had about 15 strips. I laminated the strips together and let it set overnight.I then planned the Piece down to 2” thick, jointed 1 edge and ripped the piece down to 13” and cleaned that edge up on the jointer.I then attached the table to the bridge on the BT with 8 1 1/2” screws from under t...
I made quite a bit of progress yesterday, thought I would show some of those pictures and than go back to the build process. After getting to this point I had to make a test cut, I was not disappointed. I used a 4 X 4 sheet of 1/4” mdfthe cut was so perfect no adjustment is necessary. I will get back to the build a little latter today. I must say I am like a guy in a tool store with excitement. All I have left to build is the outrigger, and will work on that t...
