Old Projects #12: Build a Tile Topped End Table Tutorial

12-22-2020 01:08 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

I made several variants of this table, all with the same tiles. If you think the oak prototype is nice you should see it in jatoba (I’m still looking for more pics) Oh yeah, its been 20 years since this original build post and that table is still going strong. One of the bottom slats got trod upon years ago but otherwise it is holding up well. Its been used so much that the pattern on the edges of the tiles has begun to wear off. It’s had no end of spills and slop on it with li...

Resaving a Oak on a Rikon Model 10-324TG

11-25-2020 09:56 PM by nutmegger13 | 6 comments »

Looking for some advise….I have a 2 inch thick black oak slab. It is 22 inches wide. It is 40 inches long. I am making a table top, 3/4 inch thick. It has to be 30 inches wide. I was planning on resawing the board on my Rikon 14 inch bandsaw into 2 one inch thick boards and planing them down to 3/4 inch. My dilemma, is do I cut the 22 inch wide board in half yielding 2 pieces 10 inches wide for resawing? Or should I cut the board into 3, 7 inch boards for resawing? I don&...

Shaving Horse #3: Fitting the Ramp

11-24-2020 05:22 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

This kind of shaving horse is really not too fussy about precise construction. Installing the ramp is a fairly easy process, however, I did fuss with it quite a bit. Since this wood is totally green and is bound to shrink and move, I think it was not really productive to spend as much time as I spent setting up the ramp. But I am not too used this kind of woodworking, so I just did my best. In the version that I am making, the ramp needs to be beveled on the underside where it mates up ...

Small Projects #33: Metric Box - It's full of METERS!

11-19-2020 01:57 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Just got a couple of toys for myself as a belated b’day gift. An outlet tester and an induction probe to go along with my DVM. One of my complaints about DVM’s is that the leads seldom store neatly. As electrical tools in a wood shop the things collect lots of dust and debris. I came up with this four compartment lexan lidded box: It’s a metric box ‘cause its full of meters! I used 30” of oak 1×6 resawn on the TS to 5/16” and planed down to...
