Open weave Lazy Larry #8: The glue up

1091 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Got out nice and early this morning… and here is the glue up video you have all been waiting for … The whole video is actually only 9 minutes long… intro and ending included… the glue up took around 8 minutes and a further couple to fit and adjust the clamps.. So a realistic total of under 10 minutes… not too shabby…

Making a toted coffin smoother

54 days ago by Wally331 | 13 comments »

Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...

The Basement #42: Building ZCI's with a homemade pin router for the '113 TS

69 days ago by JL7 | 14 comments »

This has been on the list for awhile now. I’ve built ZCI’s in the past from Oak and Masonite but overtime they have issues. I got my hands on a Leecraft ZCI for my Craftsman 113 TS and was blown away at how nice it was. So all the design credit here goes to Leecraft, here’s a picture: The Leecraft doesn’t use the front hold down screw that comes standard on this saw, rather, they use 2 horizontal screws (one in front and one on the right side). You tweak...

The Basement #41: Moddin' the Table Saw.....

90 days ago by JL7 | 38 comments »

This is another project that I’ve been kicking around for awhile now. Kind of time consuming but think it will be a good one for the long run: First off, this is an older Craftsman “113” contractor saw. I would much rather have a shiny new cabinet saw, but lack of power and funds are preventing that! Some of the mods were done earlier and here was the saw prior to this last round of changes. I’ve never cared for those sheet metal bases on those saws. Really...

and then it becomes....... #6: marquetry conquest

2062 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

Well it has been a while since my last posting on this project. As promised I will show my way of doing marquetry and carvings. Remember that these are my techniques, and yours may vary. There are a ton of ways of doing things and I’m sure there’s a lot of ways easier then mine. For instance many of you may prefer to use a router to route out a majority of the material, then use chisels to cut to the line. I use chisels simply because I do the work on my dining room table. I...

and then it becomes....... #11: The final frontier (Parental Discretion is Advised)

2011 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 12 comments »

Well today I got the first coat of my mixture of tung oil, blo, and poly. I am posting it here now as done, although I will add one or two more coats of oil in the days to come. This project has been fun to make and I think I’ve been able to successfully come out of it with some new knowledge. Which is always a good thing I suppose. I had a story in my head for this project but I figured I would let each viewer make up their own.So lets start on the outside. The overall cabinetov...

Setting Up Delta DC w/ Wynn Filter & Super Dust Deputy

121 days ago by dakotawood | 5 comments »

Alright, my first blog entry ever. I’ve learned so much from so many here. Figured it’s my turn to hopefully help someone out there. I researched this topic extensively. There were similar things on LJ about this upgrade. But I found I wanted some more specifics as to how to hook up exactly before I purchased everything. I have a Delta 50-760 DC. As you can kind of see in this image, my existing factory cloth bag has seen better days. It’s quite brown colored on the outsi...

Shop Stuff #4: Two shop helpers

225 days ago by SPalm | 24 comments »

I have been building a lot of cabinets recently. Not my favorite thing to do. Anyway, I came up with a couple of jig thingies to help. First problem was assembling carcasses all by myself. Pocket screws make it fast, strong, and easy to build a carcass. My problem was getting the first three pieces screwed together. So I made a bunch of little blocks by drilling a hole in them with the pocket screw jig. I then slightly rounded a small piece of 3/8 inch dowel and glued it in the hole. When ta...

Another End Grain Board Build.....

318 days ago by JL7 | 37 comments »

I’ve seen people posting boards with diamonds and thought that was cool…..I built a diamond board a few weeks ago HERE... and I just finished this one today: So this blogs covers today’s board… For a change, I started with some nice wide timber. No scraps in this board. This is Yellowheart and Tigerwood: Cut into 1.5” by 26” strips (but I should have made them a bit longer). I don’t plan real well on the front end….4 of each ...
