Shop Organization #7: Crosscut Sled version 2.0 and Panel Sled

02-19-2008 06:56 AM by gizmodyne | 13 comments »

With the new saw I have needed to make a new crosscut sled. I have been struggling with cutting large plywood panels so I also decided to make a panel cutting sled based on Norm's design Panel Sled I started by planing some white oak to fit in the miter slots. The runners are set just below the table surface. I attached the runner to a 3 foot run of plywood…. .... and ran the ply through the saw. I attached a fence to the back of the sled square to the cut edge. It...

Hand Tools doings #6: home made "vise"

03-12-2008 03:00 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

I’m just puttering around tonight. I thought I’d snap a couple of pictures of the homemade vise that I’m using on my bench. I made this because the face and tail vise on my cheapo workbench pretty much won’t hold anything tight enough to saw or chop on. This was made out of a piece of scrap 3/4 ply. The size is arbitrary—I just took a piece and chopped it in half with the chop saw. I then hand chopped the slots for the screw and knobs and cleaned up the nasty edg...

2 DYE 4

06-16-2009 06:33 AM by trifern | 56 comments »

I have had numerous requests for a how to blog about my dyeing techniques. I use water base aniline dyes. This technique the dye is applied using 20 cent sponge brushes and cheap paper towels. I typically work from the darkest colors to the lightest, creating layers of color. This piece is turned from fiddle back maple. My apologies for not taking a photograph prior to applying any dyes. The first coat is black. I apply the dye liberally inside and out. I then wipe the outside with a...

Nightstand Sketchup

11-11-2009 03:06 AM by Eric_S | 3 comments »

I finally got around to finishing the Sketchup drawing for my first fine woodworking project that I hope to start before the holidays. I had difficulty designing the sides and back and I’m still not sure if I like the grooved panels. I may go back to just a basic panel or raised. The shelf above the bottom drawer was also a pain, but that could just be because I was a newbie to Sketchup. Please let me know if there is a better, or easier way to build a shelf that sits like that. ...

MY-2-CENTS #2: Single rail table saw sled

07-17-2009 11:27 PM by eastside | 4 comments »

I noticed a few blogs talking about table saw sleds but not about the single rail type. Now this isn’t new I used this type for just about 20 years now and I’m sure a lot of you guys use it also so I guess this is for the lumberjocks that haven’t seen this type before. It is based on the sliding tablesaw style like the big saws that can cut 4×8 sheets so the rail/fence is forward. It may look dangerous at first but it takes little effort to hold the work piece in place. ...

Woodworking vacation tidbits #1: Setting up a hand plane

05-26-2008 01:04 AM by Betsy | 7 comments »

So here’s my first installment of some of the various tidbits I learned at Kelly Mehler’s hand tool class this past week. Hopefully I will do justice to what I was taught. As disclaimers are becoming popular—- here’s mine—- this works for me! Setting up a hand plane is not so hard once you do it a time or two, or twenty or forty. But it is doable. I’m skipping the sharpening information right now and going straight to set up. So I am going to assume a...

Thought I would get an easy one out of the way. I have to turn some pens this weekend for 4 of my co-workers that are retiring next month . I’m going to do some real nice kits and use some of my best materials. I’ll post some photos in the project section when I finish. It is also my Son’s 16th birthday so we have a party planned. Lots to do. This 4 1/2 plane was purchased on of ebay. I normally shop on ebay when I am looking for a specific plane or other tools. It...
