Pin Hole Camera #1: Concept

03-15-2016 11:27 PM by Matt | 2 comments »

Among my hobbies, photography ranks high. Lately I’ve gone back to film, shooting B&W medium format. Then I got the bug for a large format camera with all the motions and selective focus. 5 years ago, one could find large format gear for next to nothing. But now… it’s becoming popular again. And the ebay prices are going up… I really didn’t want to spend $1000+, so I’ve decided to build my own. To start, I figured I would begin with a pin hole 4...

First Cut

03-15-2016 02:33 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 4 comments »

So I made my first cuts ever on a table saw today. Wow… It just cut those lil furring strips like butter! I wanted to get a feel for what it was like and see all the parts moving in action. I was surprised that my shop vac made more noise than the TS! I cut some 2×2 furring strips into 9’ 3/8” pieces so I could glue them up and make supports for the slats underneath the king bed. Since the house is tile through out… Zero likes to slippery run and dive bomb...

Project Table Saw: COMPLETE

03-10-2016 06:54 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 0 comments »

Ok so it took WAY longer than I thought it would to build my first table saw… But boy will it be worth it! The good: 1) Saw built – wooooohoooo!2) Workbench materials are present and just waiting to be put together. It should be noted that it’s a HF prefab but hey – I want a bench that I can use, get a feel for what features I need (want) and then build one. I needed a reference point and with a sale plus 20 percent off… I found one.3) The shop Super, Zero...

Building the Ridgid R4512

03-09-2016 07:23 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 2 comments »

The good: 1) Thank GOODNESS I’m mechanically inclined. The assembly directions for some reason didn’t explain clear enough for me on some parts and bored me to tears on others. Even though I have it standing on its legs finally… I’m finding that I will likely have to figure out how to remove the caster assembly with the table upright and start over with that one. The foot lever that engages and disengages the casters (so it can roll) is supposed to be on the right s...

Making Ridgid R4512 inserts

03-09-2016 03:22 AM by Kelly | 2 comments »

I recently went out purchased a Ridgid R4512 table saw and needed some zero clearance inserts (ZCI), but at $30+ an insert I decided to take a crack at making some. Anyone who has this saw knows that these inserts are a little tricky as there are a number of small pockets where the leveling screws rest and the insert must be cut out to accommodate them. Also, there is a slight bevel just inside of the throat so the insert has to have a very thin lip around it. As I started looking...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #71: Yet Another Router Table

03-03-2016 09:39 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

Third time lucky?... time will tell! I decided that although I use my router regularly, I don’t do anything complicated, so a simple router table that can be packed away after use is ideal. I have taken an idea from 'poroldchap' on Youtube, and made a couple of small changes. The whole unit only comprises of a hardwood base, with another piece attached underneath to fit in the vise, and a 3/4” plywood fence/vertical table, I bought a hardwood stair tread 12” x 30&...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #70: Trying to find a good Router Table design

03-01-2016 01:35 AM by PhilBello | 13 comments »

Last July I blogged about building a new router table as an extension wing of my Table Saw, it worked well, but recently the router started to flex, and no amount of adjustment solved the problem, so it had to go, I don’t think it was the design, so much as the quality of the hardware I was able to get down here. After searching the internet for a while, I came across another design, that bolts to your workbench. I used my old Bauker plunger router for this, it wont be long before th...

Homemade Tablesaw

02-28-2016 02:07 PM by SirFatty | 5 comments »

My grandfather was a carpenter and home builder, he put together this table that was used for that purpose. It was handed down to my dad and it’s the tool I used to create my woodworking projects from age 10 until I moved out. It was built in the 50’s with a Craftsman arbor and motor, oak and hand formed sheet metal for the dustbin. The fence is adjustable using a novel hand-crank to move it towards and away from the blade. It works pretty good, there is some...

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...
