Shop stuff #207: Building a new outfeed table

04-03-2021 01:27 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Temporary….anything not meant to last. What is temporary? Well, everything if you wait long enough. But sometimes you just have to decide that “for now” is over and that’s usually when you’re tired of the compromises in your quick fix. That’s what happened to my table saw outfeed and now it’s time to remedy that situation. https://youtu.be/kRVCIBjgUYk

Chair woodworking plans #4: Photo of wood joint btwn stretcher and legs

03-22-2021 08:31 AM by Tony Slattery | 1 comment »

I hesitate to call this a woodworking joint, it’s not the traditional mortise and tenon joint. The justification for this is I am always looking for easier ways of doing things. This is a dowel joint with a bit of reinforcing in the form of a long wood screw. Hopefully you can see the two dowel locator pins, and the 6mm woodscrew in the middle. I have tried to make an illustration of this idea for joints in a previous post, and this is what it looks like. Just in case it...

Recycle a few scraps #1: Getting to a glue up...

03-20-2021 11:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

One of the chores in the last few projects, is ripping a panel, or just a plank, to get to a certain width. usually results in a strip of scrap…..that for some reason or other, I just can’t throw out. After a while, there is a pile of the strips of scraps…too small to do much more than a few cauls….which get tossed away once the clamps are done with them… So…some thinking was done, dangerous I know…about gluing up a panel of those scraps…t...

Hi I would like to introduce myself

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I am excited to join this forum. Besides my “about me” section of my profile I would like to see how of help to anyone who may be interested in the exotic woods that I have. As well as any questions that may arise about wood preparation. I own a top of the line vacuum wood kiln that was developed by Den Socling from PCS Vacuum Kilns. This has given much information about what it takes to dry wood in a heavily controlled environment and so forth. Don’t h...

Chair woodworking plans #2: Mission Chair Joint Detail

03-11-2021 04:52 AM by Tony Slattery | 1 comment »

This is the proposed joint between the stretchers and the legs. The legs are shown translucent so we can see inside. The screw is one of those socket heads popular with the builders around here. Shaft diameter is 6mm, and the pointy end seems to have some kind of ability to drill a hole for itself. The thread is also very sharp, and I imagine that is designed to cut through the timber. I have used this kind of screw for furniture repair and it has been very effective. I thought i...

A Project for March #1: Back story, and a start up.

03-06-2021 02:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a stack of “Leftovers” from the last project….mainly Ash.. Thought about resawing all this down….keeping the better parts at 1/2” thick….but.. Not going to be easy… Figured I could set the rip fence to 2-1/2”.. And avoid the worst of the defects… (Firewood) The 1×2s ? Hmmm, may take some careful cutting….Reset the tablesaw….Zero Clearance Overly, fence 1/2” away from the blade…..blade a...

Shop stuff #204: Fighting bad installation manuals

02-27-2021 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I’m on a new project in our new home. This time I am installing a bathroom. It’s below grade and below the waste plumbing so I had to buy a very expensive macerating toilet with a pump on it to handle the waste water. With all the money these things cost you would think that they would have had someone with some technical writing skills to do the manual. But no, not these guys. A short gloss over of things is all they give you and even that is incomplete and vague. Join me a...
