Project to learn woodturning. #1: My Chess Set

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Making Two Sets of Matching Heirloom Saws #1: The 10" Dovetail Saw

02-12-2016 02:20 AM by summerfi | 20 comments »

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Standing Desk - live edge black walnut #1: step 1 find the wood... check

01-29-2016 07:52 PM by bmalloy | 0 comments »

Hi, I am making a standing desk for our home. The wood is on the way and I am trying to prep. I am totally new at finishing wood and working with black walnut. I own 43” of the wood from the bottom and it is 21” at the widest part. So I think I am gonna use Watco danish oil in the natural color and I already have satin arm-r-seal on the way. I understand that the dust is toxic so I plan on sanding outside. I am suffering a mid-west winter in the USA, would t...

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
