The Coolidge Chronicles #6: Part 1 - Grizzly G0696X 5HP 12" Table Saw Assembly

11-20-2013 08:52 AM by darthford | 7 comments »

Well the 12” 5HP beast arrived today…and still the UPS freight driver mocked me for not having a lathe geesh. Out of respect before I got going on my saw I first gave my brothers Powermatic PM2000 I have been using a good cleaning and a fresh coat of Boeshield . Here I unboxed the fence and compared it to the PM. The major points, both fences use the same 2” x 3” steel tube. The Grizzly fence is longer and has end support to ride on the rear fence rail. The Grizzly ...

The legs are approaching 4 inches, glued up from four pieces but laid out so that it looks like 3. Tapers were eyeballed on one and transferred to the other three and sanded. Rails are 5/4 (finished) reclaimed pine, just a few knots.

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade) Water Base Pre-Stain Conditioner

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced produ...

LJ Interviews #46: Knotscott

03-15-2014 01:45 PM by MsDebbieP | 26 comments »

This interview, with knotscott is from the March, 2014 issue of our LumberJocks eMag   1. How did you first get started working with wood? Woodworking was an evolution that went from watching lots of home shows on TV, to trying to do small projects around the house myself, to taking on bigger projects. While rebuilding our front porch railings, I made a chamfer cut on a post with a borrowed router that totally changed the way the post looked. After that I was hooked for life! M...

The Pizza Peel & The Tomato Pie Recipe

07-12-2013 04:48 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

A pizza peel is a giant spatula intended to deliver a raw pizza to the oven as well as pull the cooked pizza out. Professional versions feature long handles that allow the cook to reach the very back of the oven. A version for the average home can be much more compact. The pizza peel I designed can be made from any wood you like and certainly doesn’t need to be made from expensive woods like bubinga and figured maple. And before you give me crap about it, these were scraps from pr...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #23: Thien Thing (build), Different Day...

03-23-2013 02:05 PM by DIYaholic | 5 comments »

Yes, this is ANOTHER Thien Top Hat Pre-Seperator B(uild) log, or blog if you will!!! I have the in/famous HF 2HP DC, which has been “Hot Rodded”, but that will be another blog entry. My build was inspired by Pitbull over on In The Workshop with Charles Neil. While that build inspired me, I took many liberties and ultimately came up with my own design. (FYI: I’m using a 30 gallon galvanized trash can as my collection bin.) While researching the build, I stumpled upon th...

Hello all. I’m about to make a small box featuring curves. Something I don’t do often. Curves that is, not boxes and it occurred to me to feature the jig I will be using to build it with. Yes I know I’ve recently posted a couple of circle jigs for the bandsaw but there is more than one way to skin a cat and its always useful to have an alternative to call on. This is it Its just a sheet of 6mm Perspex with three slots cut in it and a 6mm pin inserted in a tapped ho...
