Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

Shop stuff #188: Fancy root veggie bin part 2

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process.

Shop stuff #187: Starting a new build

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Last winter I started a new build. It’s still not done yet, but I am starting to put out the videos on it. I am doing a larger series on this one, breaking it into several digestible parts so I can include lots of detail. My aim is to make any woodworker able to build this project by watching the videos. I also mention optional ways of doing things when I can. It is a 3 drawer root vegetable storage unit. But I am making it pretty fancy. It’s going into a home that is a bit...

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Mandocello build series #18: Gibson style Mandocello Full build

02-29-2020 01:34 AM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

over a year ago I started my florentine style Mandocello based on prints that I’ve presonnaly made. so to be accurate I’ve started this build when I started gathering information about this instrument, size, dimentions, scale length, pro and cons etc… so in reality, I’ve been working on this baby for over 4 years. well last week I’ve finally did the final setup and call it a wrap. I’ve just finished the editing on the full build and i’m happy to sh...

Shop stuff #179: Finishing up the Bathroom Reno

12-28-2019 02:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Just a bit of trim and door casing to go. I had some fun and milled it all up over a few days, plus the finishing process. I kept it easy with just some water based poly. On to installing it and getting the bathroom renovation pretty much wrapped up. It took over a year in all, but there were other things that needed doing that took priority. We are enjoying it now.

What size blade for 24" bandsaw

12-06-2019 02:11 PM by Hazem | 3 comments »

Hello All, So I splurged on Black Friday and purchased a 24” bandsaw from Grizzly. It arrives in a few hours :-) What size blade should I get? 1” or 1.25” or 1.5”? The bandsaw is my primary cutting tool and is used for a variety of operations. I do not have a table saw. I am keeping my smaller bandsaw with a .25” blade for tighter cuts. My priority is to get straight cuts. Zero blade drift is my goal. Speed and smoothness of cut are secondary. I know ...

Shaker Table, dealing with Cardio problems #2: Thinning 3 boards

11-22-2019 03:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

The 3 boards are nice and all, but…they are rough sawn, and a wavy 4/4” thick….not really what I want for the table’s top….Hand planes to smooth both faces, and get them to 3/4” thick? Not going to happen, right now. Use a hand saw to resaw them….again, not up to that sort of thing….besides, I still need to get the rip saws sharpened up, anyway….maybe use the tablesaw? Well, it would involve two set ups….one at 7/8” and...
