04-13-2020 04:13 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Made the better half a 6×6 purpleheart box the other day out of 1/4” resawn 1×6. I had the scant middle of the two sided resaw left over. Its saw burned and 5-3/4” square and thickness varies all over the place around .200”.The middle slice of a double sided resaw. Lemme see if I’m I can make anything useful out of this I think, and so a project began.2-13/16” square and half of that high. Cut the big square into four smaller squares. Then ripped ...

Small Projects #3: Cherry Insulin box

01-27-2020 12:33 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads. I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents. The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fi...

Stickley 802 Hall Table #2: Rough work

12-20-2018 10:44 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

Really do better enjoy joinery. Did that cut to rough length, joint and plane, blah blah. I was focused on getting the top and legs. 8/4 wasn’t really wide enough to get good rift sawn out of the edges. It will have to do. The top was a chore. The top is 18” wide taking two 7 1/2” boards and one 3.” I joined the wide boards where the grain is straight. Have to really look for the joint. Where the the narrow board matches is wavy so I did the best I could....

frame saws #1: sawing logs with a frame saw

01-28-2018 09:34 PM by Lazy_K | 0 comments »

There has been a surge in the popularity of frame saws in woodworking recently, especially in saws intended for resawing planks and slabs. a Few years ago I made a frame saw from the Gramercy tools 12” bow saw kit. it came out really well, and inspired me to make one that holds a coping saw blade. My first home made frame saw was back in the early 1980’s and I have added one bought and one more handmade in the interim. but I think I am going to want a saw to rip...

LJ Gang— I’ve been doing a bandsaw tune-up, and thought I’d post the end result to motivate folks that might have been putting this off. Uh, like yours truly. These are a test dovetail corner I cut to see how it all worked out. And here is a 7.5” resaw veneer I also managed to make. Pretty awesome! This bedeviled me forever—the ability to do this. What did I do? 1. Changed both top and bottom bearings ($80)2. Added an aftermarket Kreg fen...

Workshop #32: Shopquest 2017! New Saw Up!

02-05-2017 08:58 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Ok, So it has taken me a few weeks to get the saw from my garage to the shop. But I with help from the wife got it into the basement yesterday and I completed assembly and set up this morning. Set up was generally easy, even had some help from my daughter. Had to run out to get a blade this morning as I had not gotten one yet, and again this afternoon as my dust connector I had did not fit the duct port on the saw. Why is it that 4” is different on every tool? Quick fix though an...

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw.

I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
