Sargent 307 Set up to do chamfers? - 8 replies

Hi All! I got this gorgeous plane from Mr. Don and I could use some assistance (sorry Mr. Don, I’m a bit more of a newb than I thought I was!). I’m attempting to use it to cut 45 degree chamfers on the leg vise piece of my workbench and apparently I can’t get it set right. I’m thinking I need to back the blade back a...

Fake live edge? - 16 replies

I’m sure this is considered blasphemy on some level but before you judge, I’ll explain. I’m looking to do a bar top work area in the WOman Cave in the basement. I’m thinking it’s going to be supported by iron pipe and flanges because the wall is not blocked for support and I’m not thinking I want to build cubb...

Cherry with a walnut stain? - 10 replies

just curious if anyone has ever stained cherry dark? I’ve been browsing for pictures to see what it might look like. I wanted to see how much of the red comes out even with a dark stain. Or would staining cherry with walnut stain be a sacrilegious practice? :D Thanks all!

Question on pullout shelves - 17 replies

Hi all! I’m going to be embarking on my first ever Sketchup creation build from the ground and I’ve got a question. I’m in the process of designing a tall unit that will be holding electronics – mostly gaming systems and a receiver. I’d like to have them each on pull out drawer slides so the cords are easily acce...

Make or buy? - 13 replies

Hey all :) need some input. A friend of mine contacted me this evening about help with a project. Here’s what she sent me:It looks pretty doable in pine/poplar as long as I can find a template for the state part – the majority of the work seems paint and stain. So just after we texted about this, I found a cutting board in the shape...

shelf mounting with metal studs? - 10 replies

I’m beginning to feel a bit like a doofus having metal studs used in our basement remodel – sounded like a good idea at the time just in case we ever had water damage…I don’t really want to be ripping out six ft of drywall to run blocking where I now need to install about a six foot run of shelving. It’s only going ...

Using Hickory for a box? - 6 replies

Hi all! So I got the book “Basic Box Making” out from the library and found a good use at Christmas for the very first box project in the book. My SO loves hickory as a wood but in my limited experience, I haven’t had any chance to use anything other than oak or pine. Would hickory be ok to work with in a small project li...

Puzzle box big enough for gift cards? - 3 replies

I’m sure this has been done somewhere here on LJ before but I am having no luck stumbling on something that meets my criteria. I have nephews that are getting to the awkward to buy for age and are getting gift cards this Christmas. I was hoping to find a puzzle box that I could fit a gift card into the inner compartment of that would give ...

Craigslist ad too good to be true? - 10 replies

So I was at lunch and stumbled on this – Athens is about a two hour ride from where I live so not close / not far. I try to add that to my figuring on lumber costs if I look at going outside of the Cbus area. But these prices are nice! Am I missing something??

Shark Guard Install help on Craftsman 113.xx TS - 8 replies

Hi all! Edit: took some more pics when I was out there today that I was hoping might help. I’ve been trying to install my shark guard on and off for the past few months (yes I’m slow, and no I don’t get out to my shop that often). I was hoping there would be other craftsman saw owners that have shark guards that may be able...

Two Sketchup questions - 8 replies

hey all :) I wasn’t quite sure where to put this so if Ms. Debbie needs to move it – please do so :) I’m in the process of building my next shop in Sketchup and am having two issues I just can’t seem to find answers for so I thought I’d ask. One is if anyone can tell me if the newest version (Sketchup Make/2014) h...

Uncertainty about form of carving - 6 replies

Hi All! I’ve been mulling over making a lamp for my dresser for a while now and had an epiphany the other day I’m trying to figure out where to start to pursue. I’d like to carve the post of the lamp out of barbed wire that would wrap around a copper pipe that would hold the wiring. the carving would be cylindrical – ...

Guessing this is just their way of having a big sale, but thought I’d see if any other LJ’ers are planning on going?

picture of chisel in honing guide? - 12 replies

yeah – I know this is probably a stupid question, but I’m going to ask anyway. Would someone mind posting a picture of their 1/4 in chisel in one of the generic Eclipse style honing guides for me please? I think either I’m not seating mine right or I need to do some filing on the jig, but I want to be sure I’m seating it ...

Lighting faux pas - 10 replies

I usually just leave my garage door open and that provides sufficient light and air circulation for what I’m doing. With the shorter days and cooler temps it’s tough to get much done with after about 6 pm. I went to lowes yesterday and bought what I thought was just a 4ft T8 hanging light. After opening it last night and thinking on...

question on popular woodworking plan - 12 replies

hey all :) So I’m working on a miter saw stand project I found in a library book, published by popular woodworking I think. I keep meaning to do a short writeup on it but forgetting. It’s a great book! Anyway, the plans for the stand and it’s helper stand call for trimming the 2×4 parts down to 1 1/4×3 1/4. Squari...

Oh look! a jointer on Craigslist! - 17 replies

On a whim, I checked out possible joiners on craigslist to see what might actually be out there. Low and behold I found this. I had to chuckle at the ‘works like new’ bit from the look of the picture. Is this even worth rehabbing?? Then I actually found an older Delta that looks a bit better for 10 bucks cheaper. The age doesnR...

new fence for a craftsman 113.298341 - 5 replies

starting the process of poking around and trying to figure out which after market fences will work for my older Craftsman table saw, and was hoping some of you all would have traveled this road before me and may be able to enlighten my path a bit. Does anyone currently have an incra/delta/verycoolsuper tool fence they use on this or similar age...
