I’m going to starting a project were I’m laminating wood together to make stool. I need a slow drying glue because assembly might take some time. I need some suggestions.

Table Saw Safety Knee Shut Off Switch

12-21-2009 08:51 PM by burkelyn | 3 comments »

I know that Mark E. created this but he has not been on in almost two yrs. So I am turning to other woodworkers for help. I know that this was created with either 3/4 or 1” pvc pipe, but the question is how and where to hinge this. I have a new table saw from Shop Fox with cast iron wings and I do not want to ruin in right away. I have already ordered a different type of shut off switch with a paddle, but I want the long bar so that I can turn it off with my knee from anywhere. Mar...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

12-21-2009 10:45 PM by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Jointer tips

02-23-2015 01:46 AM by LJackson | 3 comments »

I recently purchased a used Jet six inch cabinet jointer. The last time I used a jointer was decades ago in high school shop class. I don’t know if I have just forgotten, or if I was never taught the proper operation of the jointer. What I do remember, is coming out of high school thinking it was exclusively used for flattening the edge of a board, not also the face. Through investigation, and experimentation, I have come to some ideas on how the jointer is to be set up and used. The...

Everyday life

11-21-2011 12:33 AM by scrollingmom | 3 comments »

I have been thinking about what William wrote on getting overwhelmed with all the projects for the season. About October I start thinking about what I’m going to make and who I’m going to make it for. Then the anticipated weekend that I get started. Everything goes great and by the end of that weekend I’m thinking that if I can keep up this pace I’ll be in good shape and have all that I wanted to make done in good time. I don’t know if I mentioned that I ...

A Strategy for Woodworking #6: Design Opportunities

07-07-2014 01:48 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

A Mastery student of mine came through town to visit. Over 10 years ago he studied with me and he’s building still. Not as much as he’d like but it’s a tough game this woodworking world. Not everyone understands how much time it takes and how much skill. Nor do most people appreciate how long it takes to develop that skill. This isn’t a new hobby for folks that they get good at in a couple of weekends. It takes work. It takes dedication, commitment, practice. I have always found it interes...

Feels good to be back in the shop...

07-30-2013 02:46 AM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

I’ve been laid up with a herniated disc for the last couple months and haven’t done much of anything. Time to start an easy project with light materials, so I’m screening in the porch under our deck. The deck material is 99% watertight and designed for this purpose. All the lumber is either pressure treated or cedar. All new components are getting stained with a 20 year waterproof solid color stain on all six sides because I’m only doing this once. Some observations...

Router Jig #1: Very simple router jig

12-23-2011 11:47 AM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

I am one of these people that I just want something to work, I don’t care how the jig looks as long as if it functions they way I want it to, and works well and to make what I am making look good. I work out of a small basement, (still has the uneven dirt floor) and working round house piles, so space is at a premium. For a while I never even had a router, and once I got one I had to work out the best way for to set it up. No room really for a table… While I was thinking about ...
