Dust proof! #1: Contractor's Table Saw

1767 days ago 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...

David's [aka Patron] double curve..my version of the jig? #3: Just kidding!

1770 days ago by degoose | 8 comments »

Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...

David's [aka Patron] double curve..my version of the jig? #1: Where to start? The Table!

1773 days ago by degoose | 19 comments »

I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on. [double pivot actually][two pivots two pics right!! ]The table was made from 5/8” [15mm] plywood, with silver ash us...

Our cut-off boxes end up getting mitered in a few different angles and we fianlly have one for 45 degrees and a seperate for 90. It’s a quite useful and versitile tool, a must have in all shops.

Step-back Cupboard Build #2: Cutting and more gluing!

1774 days ago by rwyoung | 3 comments »

Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...

Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

1774 days ago by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...

Advanced photo editing made easy

1775 days ago by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 6 comments »

Editing photos has always been regarded as something best left to advanced geeks and professionals. It seems to me, though, that everybody with a camera, a computer and an Internet connection should be able to get some personal satisfaction from this “advanced” technique. It isn’t hard to do, but you will need to give it your attention, especially at first until you get some experience with it. Don’t let that bother you. You’ve learned to operate woodworking t...
