Sharpened the blades.

10-11-2012 02:27 AM by jumbojack | 3 comments »

My local Woodcraft offers a blade sharpening service. They job it out; a guy comes by every Wednesday and brings back sharp blades the following Wednesday. I had no idea how bad my blades were. They came back with plastic coating across the newly sharpened toofs. I pitched it on the ole Shopsmith and ran a piece of mahogany from the scrap bin through. Seriously, it was like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed at the cut quality. The saw made a completely different sound. Looking back the...

Quick tips with The Woodworking Coach #1: TWC Episode 1 - Using Plexiglass for grain-matching

10-07-2012 07:27 PM by chidwickschool | 5 comments »

So, this summer I’ve been busy with classes, client work and additional prototype designs for a new gallery, a museum exhibit and future class designs, as well as compiling content for some plans and templates I’m creating. Somewhere along the way I’ve been able to film a series of educational “quick tips” for woodworking. So here’s the first of my new series “The Woodworking Coach”. For more information visit my school’s website: www.c...

Wing Boxes- A mini Tutorial

10-07-2012 05:44 PM by Andy | 18 comments »

I dont have time to write a lengthy tutorial but I do have a few photos and will write a word or two to help you get started. This style of box was first made by me using plans from the October 1997 American Woodworker and authored by Dave Freedman. I made a rectangle box about 12” long x 5 1/2” wide x 2 1/2” tall.I used miters for all the corners instead of butt joints as he shows. Nothing wrong with butt joints, they are what I used in the “Palm boxes ” t...

Table Saw Crosscut Extension

10-04-2012 03:02 PM 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...

Anything goes for update to my buddies

10-01-2012 08:20 AM by BertFlores58 | 8 comments »

Keep on wondering?!. Where am I now on woodwork? Lot of projects but only beginning. Yes, as a hobbiest I am not particular in finishing a project. When I see something in my workshop, my mind will think of something else. The results are these: (Please note that they are not finished yet that is why you won’t see it in the projects. THE BEGINNING I experimented on using the old method of sawing pieces using miter boxes as guides. After a while… I have these…....

Safety Mod for my Table Saw

09-21-2012 10:48 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

My table saw has a simple pull push switch and for a long time I’ve puzzled over how to add one of those paddle switch mods to it. There have been times when I would have felt more comfortable being able to power down my saw without moving my hands. Like usual I thought about it for a while and just recently came up with this. Above the switch itself is a sort of ledge just big enough to fasten a small hinge. I attached the hinge to a 10 inch length of 1/8 inch hardboard. I cut ...

Split-cutting tenons

09-20-2012 05:09 PM by Paul Sellers | 15 comments »

I thought that this new YouTube video we did on split-cutting and pare-cutting tenons rather than sawing them would help others to experience an alternative that works really well on most any wood type. I have done it this way for decades now and just realised that I hadn’t shared it as widely as I would like to. Try it in any wood you like and see how it works for you. Some woods, Sapele, ebony, mesquite and such, may not always split straight, but it shows how to cross-grain pare as a...

09-16-2012 09:37 PM by Jason™ | 18 comments »

Hello again everyone I would like to ask another question on here since all the previous ones I have asked were answered and now I understand what I was doing wrong or what the case was. I am currently gathering materials needed to build a TableSaw Workstation that can be seen in the Shopnotes issue #89 The question for this series is what are some of your ways of cutting down large sheets of plywood or MDF and getting them squared up?? “Using a Benchtop size Table saw” I D...
