Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #12: The saw has a new home / I hate jigsaws / Why I'm not an electrician...

Well guys, after spending the days before and after Thanksgiving sick with a stomach bug, I decided I was going to get something done before going back to work Monday. So, after getting my strength back, I decided to go out to the shop and put the saw base together. Last weekend a buddy of mine came over to play the part of outfeed table and we progressed to get the pieces cut for the base of the saw. All in all, it’s a pretty simple box with a hole cut in the top so that sawdust can...

Wheelchair Woodworking #7: Helping Hands part three Taking

11-28-2010 11:57 PM by Jamie Speirs | 8 comments »

The takingI think this is one of the hardest parts. Is it that we don’t like taking? Maybe it is a matter of pride, accepting help even when it might not be needed by ourselves. I needed to realise that others also have a need to give and if they cant allow them give, we are being selfish. I continually use bearings, might be a dust thing or perhaps I’m just a bit to rough on my wheelchairs. I normally just buy new bearings on line. It is quick and easy. So when I needed some bearings for ...

“Never underestimate the power of a single thought.” Ender Ilkay…(1966 – ) Salesman and Friend When I first saw these beautiful bandings I felt the excitement and the desire to learn similar to what I first felt when serving my woodworking apprenticeship. Obviously, these patterns are so remarkably unique. I thought to myself that these are truly great designs of highly trained craftsman who took the craft of woodworking to a much higher level. The Buffard Frere...

Let's Make Bandings of Wood Inlay #2: Making Wood Inlay on the Bandsaw

11-25-2010 07:18 PM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

When a woodworker searches the web to learn how to make wood inlay bandings there is little information to be found. In fact there seems to be very little information about how the masters of wood inlay created the wonderful patterns that are sometimes seen on museum quality furniture. However, there are some patterns of wood inlay from the Buffard Freres that offer a glimpse into the world of classic wood inlay from Paris. After studying these inlay designs the urge hit me to figure out h...

And that’s precisely why I succeed.” Michael Jordan…(1963 – ) Former professional basketball player, active businessman, and majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

I built the ‘Alexander saw steel tapered reamer’ based on the information found on Jennie Alexander’s green woodworking website. SawSteelTaperedReamerPlans I’m having some trouble understanding the instruction on how to sharpen the back edge of the saw blade, which works as a scraper to form the tapered hole. Here’s what mine looks like now – As you may be able to make it out, it’s just a square edge right now. Alexander says this abo...

Patchwork Necklace #1: How to make a patchwork necklace

11-24-2010 06:28 AM by MrsN | 8 comments »

So I sprained my foot last week, and my doctor has told me that I need to keep off it as much as possible and keep it elevated as much as possible. I can still sort of scroll, but I look a little funny with a pillow under my bench resting my foot, so I decided to look though my photos to see if I had anything I could blog about.I ran across some photos of a How-to make a patchwork necklace that I had thought about doing once. So instead of actually building something today, I will teach the w...
