Table Saw Crosscut Extension

647 days ago by knotscott | 3 comments »

Every now and then the crosscut capacity on my table saw is a bit less than what I need. I’ve had big crosscut sleds in the past that helped, but sometimes pulling out the sled is a hassle, plus my shop is really small so finding a convenient location to store the sled has proven to be problematic. This 4” extension was very simple, stays in place, and doesn’t take up any extra space since it sits right above the fence support bracket. My TS is left tilt, so I don’t...

Woodworking with Abrasives - Provocative Teaser Article by Andrew Crawford in British Woodworking

1121 days ago by Steven Davis | 3 comments »

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at fine-boxes.com fine-boxes.com/ and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig.

Packing tape

578 days ago by ralbuck | 3 comments »

Frank from http://www.pozsgaidesigns.com/gallery.htm had told me to try a clear packing tape to use to just hold patterns to wood; as I sawed it. He claimed it also helped the saw to work better. I had always just used candle wax on my blades from stubs— It helped a lot too. Well I finally tried it today! If you have not tried it; you do not realize how much it helps! It outdoes the candle wax! THANKS FRANK! I had some letters to cut from oak faced plywood that...

Woodworking For Therapy #7: How You Make Me Feel

187 days ago by Steve Kreins | 3 comments »

I have been working on my shop, doing little projects, learning how to use (and not use) my new tools, every day for a month now. I have had days when my cancer said, ‘No you wont make saw dust today”, but thanks to my wife, my God and my LJ Buddies, I’ve been able to push through and overcome! After being a Christian and Pastor for almost 40 years I am finally understanding how important to have people encouraging you. I understood, but now I REALLY UNDERSTAND! When y...

2054 days ago by Rogue | 3 comments »

Keep your eyes open ladies and gents, you never know where and when an unparalleled wood treasure will wash up on you desert ile. I was recently given a couple of birtch branches by a retired arbidder. Didn’t think much of them. I figured I’d save them for a project that I needed a nice white stick for. One day I walked by them in my shop and I saw that the cut off of a small branches had dark inky lines spiderwebbing through it. I nearly wet myself! I propty set to work for...
