Tool Gloatings

08-01-2010 08:19 PM by wellington | 8 comments »

I’m still pretty new out here, but I really enjoy the concept of the ‘tool gloat’, so I’ve decided to partake. This is (most of) my shop… It’s perpetually in a complete disaster state, but I suppose that’s a good thing… means that things are getting done. We’ll start the tour at the most terrifying thing in the place… the 14” table saw… This, like pretty much everything else in here, was acquired by my dad about...

Band saw #1: What kind of bandsaw would be best?

01-06-2012 04:30 PM by Yostriker | 4 comments »

Hello all, I am currently looking to get a band saw to put into my small garage shop. I would be using it for re-sawing (up to 4”) hard and soft woods. There are many to chose from but I would like to get your trusted opinions of 10-14 inch types. Any information and personal experiences you can provide will be useful. I would normally purchase a Canadian machine just because the shipping charges are horrendous at the boarder. Size is deffinatly a factor in this buy as well, my shop ...

Lego Table #11: Drawer fronts

12-11-2015 10:46 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

*Note, this post is image heavy. If you want to see all the pictures, click here see my woodworking blog.* I had a simple goal today—get the drawer fronts all cut out and shaped.Drawer Fronts I started on the drawer fronts today. First I made a template of the shape I wanted to cut out for a finger pull. I used 1/4” plywood I had laying around. Then I clamped the template to my 3 1/2” poplar planks and traced the same cutout pattern. Using my drill press, I punched out the wast...

52 Weeks #21: A day late…

05-31-2011 02:52 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

and not a lot to show for it. I have been spending the past couple of weeks practicing with my scroll saw, since I hate to do nothing I decided to work on a few signs and cut the letters out with the saw. This has given me a great opportunity to experiment with different blades and also prompted me to work on a dust collection concept for my saw. I finished the first sign this morning. I have had this saying hanging in my shop for a bit on a piece of paper; thought it would make a good...

Tools #1: Cheapo Skil band saw - works good

03-08-2010 08:43 PM by Lisa Chan | 9 comments »

I have limited amount of space at the moment, and I’m also poaching some real estate in the shared garage with my landlord for the wood working toys. It’s sort of damp, cramped, and a bit of a nightmare. I couldn’t realistically expect that things wouldn’t get stolen out of there either. That meant that it didn’t make a lot of sense to save up a ton of money and invest in the nicest largest tools that I would never want to part with. I would like to someday ha...

Lego Table #13: Sliding bottom idea...

12-11-2015 10:57 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

After a quick check on the wounded drawer to see how things were drying, I came to the conclusion that my repair work accomplished it’s goal. The drawer is nice and sturdy again after the glue. However, I’m a little concerned about the depth of the router cut. I may have to redo this one. I decided to shelve the drawers and move on with the other trickery needed to finish the top. I need to make the little bins on the wings that will collect Legos the kids scoop off the main play surfa...

Time to Step Up My Skills #6: Where do I go next? No new progress. And some questions...

07-17-2013 02:37 PM by AngieO | 15 comments »

Well… I haven’t made any new progress. I did some shop clean up and moved some things around. I have a few unfinished projects in the shop that I need to handle and get them out of the way. I am using the shelf under my bench to put the “in progress” projects. So the most I’ve done on my bench is to move it under there so that I don’t have to keep moving it from one spot to another to get it out of the way. This was probably a bad idea. LOL! Out of sight...

Being cheap #1: Band Saw Woes Triumphs and Tribulations

01-02-2014 08:15 AM by Ted78 | 2 comments »

Ten or twelve years ago, living in a tiny basement apartment with my then infant son, I bought my first power tool. The cheapest band saw they had down at the home improvement store. A “Tool Shop” bench top model. At $85 it was a major purchase for me, and to date the most I’ve ever spent on a single tool, at least all at once. My reasoning was that a band saw was versatile, compact, and relatively quiet. For the next decade the little saw that could served me admirably,...

Time lapse Woodworking #7: Resawing a 13'' tall 8/4 walnut board

01-24-2011 05:31 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 11 comments »

Here is another video in our time lapse woodworking series, this time around I’m re-sawing a 13’’ 8/4 solid Canadian Black Walnut board about 33’’ long into 4 pieces that need to end up 3/8’’ thick. These will be the panels in a frame and panel center divider for a shelving unit we’re building for a display for a local store. First I throw on a new blade, I’m just using a 3/8’’ blade from our local band saw blade place cal...

Lego Table #14: Fixing the sliding bottom...

12-11-2015 11:01 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

I had a eureka moment last night. How to get the false bottoms on the bins to slide in and out? I had envisioned two pieces of thin plywood or hardboard, sliding out through the sides, which allow all the collected Legos to fall out through the open bottom. I had devised a few different ways to achieve this goal, but all of them included little guide rails sandwiching the moving part. It was all very complicated and involved tiny pieces. Then it came to me: why not just cut the bottom o...
