Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #1: The Glue Up Table

05-11-2012 06:28 AM by Boxguy | 7 comments »

The Glue Up Table In my shop the most important element in efficiency is organization. That means having what I need at hand when I need it. In the case of the glue up table it starts with a straight line that I can put the sides of the box against to line them up for glue-up. This is a shop made holder for the tape dispenser. It allows me to have the tape already positioned over my work and it is easily removed from the holder. Glue and brushes are essential. I keep my bru...

The Basement #31: Byrd Shelix upgrade for the DW735

10-07-2012 04:36 PM by JL7 | 14 comments »

I burn through planer blades like crazy so I bit the bullet and upgraded. Took about 2 hours this morning to install and cuts sweet on the very first pass. Time will tell, but should be a great upgrade. On a side note – I use an old dust collector bag for chip collection – otherwise you fill up the dust collector or shop vac way to fast…....I think it will work anyways, just hooked that up yesterday. Here is the difference in noise level – some say you don̵...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #24: A collection of before/after photos of planes I have restored

08-09-2012 08:48 PM by Dan | 12 comments »

Rather then doing a separate blog on all of these I figured it would be easier to just post a blog of before and after shots of some of my plane restorations… Some of these have been completely restored and some just cleaned up and tuned. Stanley #40 1/2 Scrub Plane Stanley #10 Bench Rabbet Plane Stanley #113 Compass Plane Stanley #78 Rabbet Plane Wooden Skew Rabbet plane (Gift from fellow LJ Member) Stanley #45 Combination Plane Sarg...

5 Cuts to a "Perfect" Cross Cut Sled

03-01-2012 02:39 AM by wnwoodworkingschool | 50 comments »

I’ve been getting a few email requests for a video on how I calculate the error ratio and how to correct and construct a cross cut sled that’s dead on square. I’ve been demonstrating this at the Woodworking shows for the past 5, 6 years and I still get emails asking me about the error ratio calculations. So here it is. Material List for sled:Runners: 5/16” x 3/4” x 30” Base: 1/2” x 34” x 30” Front Fence: 1-1/2” x 5” x 30R...

Bowling Alley Workbench #15: Falling Off the Wagon... (vise that is)

09-09-2010 04:06 AM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

Hard to believe, I know. It’s been over a year since I announced the workbench complete, although there was always that missing part, that loose end that had to be tied off in order to officially declare it a complete project. Not only was it a loose end (literally, the vise screw was hanging loose in it’s slot), but it was a missing integral part of the bench that I kept on wishing I had setup and functional. The Wagon Vise to hold down boards for planing flat and similar work...

Unorthodox Bandsaw Box #1: Box making steps

12-11-2011 09:42 PM by Jim Jakosh | 28 comments »

My wife asked me when I was going to make her a box to keep our business cards in when we travel. I had made a few boxes but never one upon request- especially from her. So I wanted this to be special. I went about making a bandsaw box in an unconventional way and I was having a problem with the hinge design. One night I had a dream of how to do it and wrote it down right away in the morning. Here are the steps I used to make the box using mainly the bandsaw and the scroll saw for one tough p...
