repurposing scrap keepers or burners #1: when to keep when to burn

07-20-2015 09:38 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

We all accumulate scrap. Some scrap can be cut down and repurposed into other projects, some can be salvaged and others just need to be thrown in a burn pile. Knowing what can be re used really depends on what you typically make. if you have a lot small pieces and you build wooden toys then more than likely you can reshape those into functional pieces, how ever if you are some who builds furniture small pieces of scrap are not going to do you any good. My self i primarily build picture frame...

choosing what is right for you #1: Table Saws buying guide for newbies

07-20-2015 04:57 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

Nothing is worse than buying a tool that you learn later on is one you wish you never bought especially if you are new to wood working. The most utilized tool in most woodshops is the table saw. There a vast amount of table saws on the market, finding the one that best fits your needs can be confusing. Some people like the idea of a portable saw, especially if they have limited workspace. Others prefer the cabinet style fixed location. Either one is fine, however certain things you want to ma...

planer or sander

07-17-2015 09:01 PM by bruce1 | 4 comments »

I am in the art business. I am going to begin printing on wood. I will probably do some on softwood lathes and some on band sawn 2×4s. In either case I need to kiss the wood – remove maybe 1/16”. I do not want the final result to be completely smooth. It can still have some tear. This will be production runs, several thousand feet per month. Maybe 14,000 feet. Should I buy a sander or a planer. Obviously, I need to feed the material quickly. Labor costs are a kill...

Hints and Tips #6: A Place for my Pencil!

07-15-2015 09:34 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I thought it was a great idea to keep a handy shop pencil in the miter slot of my router table or table saw, but it would often threaten to roll away, or just got in the way of one activity or another and I’d end up moving it around. I finally came up with a simple solution that works for me. I took a hunk of 2×3 and drilled 1/2 inch holes in it, nearly all the way through. I then cut the 2×3 to give me a 1-1/2 in x 1-1/2 in block with a hole in it. These I attached...

Keeping up with your glasses

07-11-2015 11:32 PM by poospleasures | 8 comments »

I have to use reading glasses for many tasks in the shop. I do not wear them except for close up stuff or if the area is a little dark, they were always somewhere out of reach as all my shirts do not have pockets. Now the idea. Use two rare earth magnets one inside and one out side located about where the pocket would be. These will hold your glasses very securely and will catch and hold them if you just get them close. Of course the stems or other parts must be metal which will attract a ma...
