Restoring a ‘59 unisaw #1: From rusty to almost done and thoughts. Add other goodies.

05-07-2018 02:51 AM by TheFridge | 24 comments »

Picked it up this almost complete unisaw (missing miter gauge. Meh) off Craigslist for 450$ from a feller. With goose egg, dust cover, and extra 36” bies fence thrown in for free :) sold the jet lock for 50$. Have since acquired a 52” unifence missing a part or 2 but in good shape to use. Has a 2HP 3ph motor so I picked up a VFD for 80$ After selling off the other 2. While I’m at it :) Have since picked up a barely used performax 16/32 drum sander for 250$ and 420...

Happy (Belated) Birthday to me!

12-15-2007 12:51 AM by scottb | 24 comments »

First off, thanks for all the birthday wishes! And thanks for all the advice http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/scottb/blog/1980, http://lumberjocks.com/topics/543 in helping me pick out this: And thanks to my wife, who, with the cancellation of this weekends plans, will let me set this up in the Dining Room! No company coming over, no need for a clean house, right?..., just open up the window, and some of the dust will fly right out – and it fits on the bench I made perfectly. w...

127 - To Kill a Vampire

08-31-2010 06:50 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Turning on the lathe is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of woodworking. Every time I turn I ask myself, “Why don’t I do this more often??” I still don’t have an answer to that. But recently, I had the opportunity to turn a cool item for a charity event. My friend Shawn was creating unique auctions for a Muscular Dystrophy charity event. One of those auctions was for a vampire...

This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #3: Lee Valley, Part II

08-03-2007 07:36 PM by MsDebbieP | 23 comments »

(continued from Lee Valley Interview, part I) Following my interview with Robin Lee, President of Lee Valley, I took my Canadian Film Crew with me as I headed to my “local” Lee Valley Store, which is just an hour away, for my very first public appearance as MsDebbieP, the Canadian LumberJock. The weather was the hottest that we’ve had all summer and, boy oh boy, was the hat and coat ever hot! Inside, Don Riley, the store manager, gave me a tour, starting with the warehouse area i...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #1: Stand finished and first turning

03-30-2013 03:33 AM by Woodknack | 23 comments »

I happened across this Craftsman lathe, the previous owner hated it and wanted $50 for it so I took it home. It came with a 2×4 stand, 1/3HP motor, 2 faceplates, a spur drive and cup center. First thing I did was disassemble, clean, and reassemble everything. Some things had been put together wrong; the drive pulley was in the wrong place so the indexing pin wouldn’t engage and the tailstock handwheel would move in and out instead of the ram. The bearings seemed fine out of the...

Teaching a 6 year old to turn #1: Introduction

03-26-2008 04:26 AM by Alin Dobra | 22 comments »

Vlad, my (almost) 6 year old son’s biggest dream since I started woodturning is to learn how to turn. I build a work table for him 1 year ago and bought him a handplane but I convinced him at the time that he is too small for woodturning. I did promise though that we will try woodturning when he turns 6. A month ago he reminded me of the deal and asked if the small Jet lathe will be his. Over the weekend I decided to give it a try with Vlad even though he is not 6 years old yet. I...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #6: Additional Update

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by lew | 22 comments »

I got called up to active duty- substituting full time in an Information Systems Technology class. So this update has been sometime in developing. Back in the early spring of this year, I had the very great pleasure of meeting the Mason Dixon Wood Working Club. We got together to learn how to make these Celtic Knot rolling pins. During the workshop session, LJ Karson suggested that it would be easier, and less wasteful, to make a saw kerf for only the walnut strips and leave the origina...

Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar (1926 – )...Motivational author and speaker Miraculous Staircase of Santa Fe NMThe Miraculous Staircase of the Loretto Chapel located in Santa Fe New Mexico is an amazing piece of carpentry and woodworking.
