100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M

Shop stuff #82: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 13 Disaster.

Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube

Casting Hybrid Blanks in Resin

02-28-2017 12:27 PM by monkeyman83 | 2 comments »

I know some of you out there clicked on this blog entry hoping to read how I cast hybrid blanks. I am sorry to disappoint you. This post is looking for information more than giving information. I have recently been asked to make one of the very common colored pencil bowls and I have been thinking about the idea of starting to cast my own hybrid blanks due to the large amount of unusable cutoffs I am accumulating from my segmenting projects. ResinI have been convinced that using Alumulite ...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...

Shop stuff #78: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 12: More French Polishing

02-08-2017 02:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Going farther than I needed to, but I was experimenting and wanted to show the process. One of my favourite finishes. I think the wax in the shellac caused a few issues. I have only used dewaxed flake shellac before but it is not available locally, so I tried what I could get my hands on. View on YouTube

Blum blumotion tandem drawer slides - lessons learned

01-23-2017 02:19 PM by Papple36 | 2 comments »

Blum tandem are the greatest, but are finacky to install-First they are 3/4 longer than the stated length so be sure you have the vack to front clearance – ie an 18 inch drawer box needs 18 3/4 of space in the frame-Next, be absolutely sure that your drawer box back hole is located correctly, or you will suffer the latches not connecting properly-It f your drawer sides have any belly, you need to straighten that out-Everything must be square and level-Using 1/2inch front and rear sides ...
