Season of shop upgrades #2: Table Saw Outfeed

143 days ago by PJ72 | 3 comments »

A need for out-feedI have tried using out feed rollers and various stands for some time and have never been satisfied with the results, especially when cutting large sheet goods on the table saw. For reasons including safety and quality of cut, I decided that I needed an out feed table system. Primary ConcernFor my garage workshop I needed a solution that was easily stored out of the way quickly with minimal storage space. I patterned the out-feed table on a design by Dwayne Intveld in t...

Air Cleaner Design

147 days ago by BuyoMasilla | 5 comments »

Greetings Ladies and Gents, I’ll try to avoid my bad habit of making a short story long as I want to be respectful of your time, want to capture your interest and hope to get your input.My step son hooked me up with a furnace “squirrel cage” from some replacement job he did. The unit is very close to 17”X17”X17” again. The motor is not belt driven, and it is a 1/3 hp Lennox that can go some 17 hundred RPM, I think I read on the label. Not sure how that translates to CFM but I suspect it wil...

Workbench build - roubo #1: Legs first

148 days ago by buck_cpa | 3 comments »

Legs first… I know this seems backwards (especially given the various blogs and books on the subject) but I’m going to give it a shot. My neighbor gave me a 12’ 6×6 pressure treated beam. I read somewhere that you should not use this stuff in the shop, but I’ve been around the stuff my whole life and it hasn’t affected me. Nevertheless, that’s what I’m using for the legs. I cut the legs to 35” on the chopsaw and planed them square (they ...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

154 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

Toy Trucks Build #1: Day 1 - Basic Milling of Chassis

154 days ago by HerbC | 4 comments »

We have two young grandsons, Chance (almost 3) and Jaylan (6). I’ve decided to build a couple of toy trucks for them. For this project I’m using the truck featured in WoodSmith No 35 (Oct 84). Here’s a picture of the truck as featured in the magazine: Today I selected a piece of cypress to use to make the chassis of the trucks. The piece was rough sawn and 5/4 thickness. I used my Ridgid planer to surface the board and planed it down to 13/16” thickness. ...

This is a blog on how i made this project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96630 These days my shop is cold. Really cold. It is open on one side and it has been about -5 degrees C outside for a while now. I can only be out there for shorter durations of time and wearing thick layers of clothing. But it has been quite a while since i made my last project and i really had a need to get in my shop and tinker a bit. What to make that is not too big a project and that improves beeing ins...

Cherry sideboard #2: She's got legs, and she...

160 days ago by SFDCapt | 0 comments »

Alright, the legs were glued up in part one. Since then I milled them to final dimensions by jointing on two sides, then running them through the table saw just oversized. The legs were then ran through the planer to get the final size I was looking for. Using the table saw to get the bulk of the waste off reduced the amount of shavings from the planer that had to go through the dust collector. The next step was to create the lower side stretchers. The rough lumber was milled 1 ¾”...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #3: Table saw base

161 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

In my quest to redo the shop better after 5 years of beating it up. Heated the shop for a short while today. I took my old delta/rockwell 10” table saw off the metal legs and put it on this base I made today. The locking wheels on the other base made the saw too high. I brought this one low, the same height as a bench would be for me, 34”. The outfeed/assembly table I’ll make next will be the same height. So will the new movable miter saw table. Everkthing is made of 3/4&...

Part #2 Case and Lid

168 days ago by S4SWWS | 1 comment »

The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.
