04-22-2014 05:32 PM by DeLayne Peck | 3 comments »

After more than 50 years as a wordworking hobbyist, I still find terms that are a mystery to me. Old salty woodworkers or unsalted newbies may want to bookmark this on-line reference: Break Your Arris. Other on-line references or out of round humor welcome in the comments section.

Works for me #8: Poorly connecting vacuum fittings

03-25-2010 05:18 PM by Dave Owen | 3 comments »

Here’s this morning’s quickie tip. I bought vacuum hoses, fittings, extension tubing, adapters, etc. from a variety of sources over the years. Unfortunately, manufacturing differences often prevent a good connection, and the result is annoying accidental disconnects while vacuuming the floor – or some other operation. In my case it’s always been because one fitting won’t fit sufficiently deep into the other – and/or is too smooth to ‘grab’ p...

Adding leg levelers and casters to a table

04-05-2011 08:51 PM by Bhaupt | 3 comments »

The objective here is to have 1 1/2” of leveling adjustability as well as being able to transport table on casters. The way I decided to do this was to have ladder casters extend downward with toggle clamps during transit. For the smaller tables I used 5/16 rods attached to a 2” wheel. For the 800# table I used 3/4” x 4” lg. ss standoffs for the ladder portion attaching to dual 2” casters. I needed to provide laterial support for the ladder/standoff...

Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

A House Warming Gift #1: Beginning

03-29-2009 03:05 AM by littlecope | 3 comments »

The gift is going to be a small wooden sign reading “Debbie’s Place”, in Cursive lettering, on an Oval Back.Gotta begin at the beginning, with lettering! Happily, I have Stencils of Written or Cursive style letters, this time I’m going with the one inch size. I’ve gathered what I can think of that I’ll need, though not likely everything. Ready to begin.Now there’s probably a few who will get a laugh out of doing it this way, but it works as good as an...

Wooden Trinket Box on the Lathe

03-12-2011 12:21 AM by AlexHarris | 3 comments » Hello agian you Lumber Jocks, Today I did a quick little trincket box project that was a lot of fun on the lathe. This project has a basic stage process which means you can produce a box on the lathe without having a chuck. By creating a friction fit on the lid you can turn the lid as if is was part wood still mounted to th lathe. Althoug this is a simple box with a little imagination this box could be made really exciting. To ...

Workshop Progress #1: Workshop Progress

11-02-2011 11:38 PM by WRAAdesign | 3 comments »

I am excited to join the Lumberjocks community to share and learn from my fellow woodworkers. This week, I continue to make progress on the workshop transformation. The walls were insulated and sheathed last weekend. Recently I began construction on the castor work table; heavy and stable is the key. Next I will build a power tool cubby. To design, I listed all the power tools that I currently have, and the ones that I expect to have in the future. After creating a spreadsheet of their ...
