Disposable KerfMaker

06-14-2011 08:35 AM by rance | 32 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

Fighting Dust #3: Tablesaw Overhead Dust Collection part #2

11-28-2010 12:23 AM by ChunkyC | 2 comments »

Here’s the dry fit mock up for the overhead dust collection system. I’ve had to change my original idea of being able to “swing” the whole thing out of the way to lifting the entire unit up and out of the way. The Y fitting ended up being too close to the DC riser to allow enough “slop” in the DC hose for the unit to swing back. I think lifting it is a better solution in the long run. I can use my friend gravity to help hold it down and in place. ...

How to use a Kerfmaker (trying to help out!) Blog.

09-21-2010 09:14 PM by mafe | 45 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Plane soles should be mostly flat

02-18-2012 09:07 PM by Paul Sellers | 14 comments »

Here is a post I did recently and now want to show you how to do it through a short video. This is not the same plane shown below but it is all the same procedure I use for smoothing planes: Something I have wanted to post on for a while. Next week I will be using a Stanley #4 at the Springfield New Jersey Show and the Fredericksburg Virginia Show Masterclasses I will be teaching for The Woodworking Shows show. It’s an eBay find for £8 – $12. This plane is and always was an amazing...

Ebonizing; Steel Wool and Vinegar

09-05-2008 02:04 AM by Allison | 39 comments »

A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are several ways of doing this. The reason the original article caught my eye was because I sure as hell don’t have the money to buy Ebony (wood), and I am forever wanting or needing dark/black wood for my projects and I do not like to use paint, to the ...

My Home Made Thickness Sander #9: Dust Collection And Finishing Up

01-19-2012 09:21 PM by lew | 18 comments »

Better add some sort of dust collection to this thing before I do anymore testing!This is what the finished “hood” looks like- Had the ½” plywood from another project. This is just a simple box. I wanted some way to hold it in place and be able to remove it without tools. Made two brackets from 1” aluminum angle “iron” to catch one side and some button magnets for the other side. Dust collection is a 2 ½” angled port that connects into the collection system. The ...
