Dust proof! #1: Contractor's Table Saw

06-16-2009 09:04 AM 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...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #2: Begining with the base

08-29-2009 01:33 AM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I begin by building pretty simple bases. They’re designed so that boxes are able to stack on top of each other. The slat on the top fits into the bottom of the box. I start with 2’x4” pieces of plywood. (I always have the 4×8 sheets cut down at my dealers.) I use my Festool track saw to achieve a straight and true edge before moving to the table saw. (This gets rid of any course, splintered, and possibly not straight, edge from the panel saw at the dealer...

Murphy Bed #16: Final Assembly and Installation

05-06-2009 06:15 AM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

After 3 days of raining I finally was able to bring the main bed assembly up to the house to get ready for the final assembly and installation. The first thing I did was place the main assembly face down on the floor and set the outer case verticals on each side. After inseting the pivot pins of each vertical into the mating piece on the bed frame I used the E-clips to lock them in place. I then placed the head board in position and since I did not have one clamp that would span the ent...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

1950s Cass Toy Co Chest Restoration #1: Research and Documentation

03-01-2015 10:23 PM by JenTWG | 3 comments »

This chest is my father’s and he asked if I would restore it for him and fix most of the damage. I first started by researching the chest. I knew by stripping the chest I would most likely loose the images either with a chemical stripper to replace/repair the finish or by sanding. I wanted to see if the manufacturer still existed and could be contacted for information or help during this process. Turns out Cass Toy Company is no longer in business and was destroyed in a fire i...
