Dust proof! #1: Contractor's Table Saw

1767 days ago by Pankratio | 3 comments »

Good evening, everyone! I read, while standing in the magazine aisle at Safeway, an article in a recent Fine Woodworking issue about dust-proofing table saws. While I elected not to follow the author’s rather comprehensive dust-proofing method, I still thought that, on behalf of my lovely bride to be and the kids I’ll one day bounce upon my knee that I ought to improve the dust collection efficiency of my table saw. The table saw itself is a Craftex CT146, which is pretty mu...

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

1578 days ago 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...

Router Jig #1: Very simple router jig

847 days ago 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 ...

El cheapo mortising chisel #1: Cheap $2 prying tool from bargain bin at hardware store into mortising chisel

190 days ago by Ted78 | 3 comments »

I needed a mortising chisel, but got sticker shock when pricing them. Old ‘pigsticker’ things on e-bay were going for $30 or so not including shipping, and new mortising chisels were nearly $50! I had a $2 bargain bin pry bar from the hardware store with a square shank. I cut off the business end at an angle. A bit of grinding, and few strokes on a fairly course stone and viola! I was pleasantly surprised on how serviceable the steel is. I don’t think the steel would...

The tiny shop chronicles: #4: Shrink the workbench

954 days ago by SnowFrog | 3 comments »

Shrink the workbench (if you can call it that, it more a table top right now) OK no lynching, it is not an actual proper workbench! ;-) Sounds counterintuitive, but it is actually too big for a tiny shop. It is there only because I reused what I had without any changes. I recycle this from the time I made concrete countertops for the kitchen. This one and a few more held the molds where the concrete was curing before being moved and installed into the kitchen. Fundamentally a sheet of ...

Food Safe Finishes For Turned Bowls

891 days ago by Chefdavid | 3 comments »

Greetings, I have been turning for less than a year and I have finally started to master the art of bowl turning. After a few bowls flying off the lathe…. A few blowing up… I have had a few now that have come off the lathe in one piece. My question the the Lumber Jock Nation is what is a good food safe finish for those wooden bowls that have survived? All comments and suggestions are welcomed!! Thanks!
