Man Down, Man Down

03-30-2012 02:07 AM by KoryK | 17 comments »

Just a quick update and some friendly advice: I can’t speak for everyone here, but I figured out this weekend that I am a woodworker NOT a mechanic. For years I have worked with all kinds of power tools and have never had a mishap. The one time I decide to be mister mechanic and work on my own car it ends in disaster. Please remember I don’t consider myself an idiot, all though some may disagree. I have found out that the seemingly simple task of changing ones spark plugs can be much m...

From ball to the star inside dodecahedron #1: First half

03-21-2012 01:13 AM by Yuri | 6 comments »

I start this project without making proper calculation and drawing. I just made a quick sketch based on my previous ball project calculations. Sure enough, I had to redo first three holes and star vertices because the base of the star was suppose to be a nice small dodecahedron and it didn’t turn up the way I wanted. The base of the star should look good because star will be moving free inside and all cuts and mistakes will be quite noticeable. So, here are the pictures of the first 6 s...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #3: Tap for Wooden Nut

03-14-2012 04:06 PM by Mauricio | 21 comments »

Hello again, On the last blog I made the guide block that guides the tap. Here I’ve made the tap and cut my first nut last night! I’m very excited about this accomplishment, this is really the most challenging part of the build and I think cutting the screw to fit will be pretty straight forward. If you’re like me, you like looking at pictures more than reading so here are some pics showing the process I followed with a brief explanation. Laid out thread pitch on paper (2...

Baltic birch plywood tearout #1: In a dovetail jig

03-12-2012 11:51 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

Not too long ago I bought a sheet of baltic birch plywood for a armoir project for my daughter (pics to be posted at a later time). I was going to use the plywood for the drawer parts because it was being hailed as splinter free when using it in a dovetail jig. NOT I tried using backer boards in the front and back and still got tearout. If the ends didn’t tear out then the last layer of the ply de-laminated. This made fitting them and glue ups a pain in the ass. I know I coul...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #14: Maybe the greatest way man has ever devised to cut box/finger joints...

03-11-2012 02:45 PM by StumpyNubs | 35 comments »

In the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking we make a micro-adjustable, multi-feature box joint machine that just might kill the dovetail forever. And then Stumpy tells the farmers where to stick it. This box joint machine has a lead screw advance and a template option, smooth, non binding sliding carriage, and a quick release so you don’t have to crank it all the way back. Plus, it will handle the biggest of jobs, and the best part is, you can build it for CHEAP. One feature...

Can I get a free SawStop? #1: I think I have an idea so that all of us woodworkers can get a free Saw-Stop!!

03-04-2012 05:21 AM by sillac | 21 comments »

What do you all think of this? If collage girls now will be able to get $3000.00 over 3 years for birth control protection, under Obama Care, the reasoning being that this is cheaper for all the rest of us tax payers than for the girl getting pergnet for having her social fun; and what is the cost for the rest of her socially fun life, then how much more cheaper is it for the tax payers to pay for a Saw-Stop table saw, about $3000.00, for all woodworkers so that the woodworkers can have safe...

SAW CABINET #1: BUILDING MY TOY SAW A CABINET, OUTFEED TABLE, AND MORE

03-02-2012 10:03 PM by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...
