Small Projects #43: Kitchen drawer replacement

04-11-2021 11:30 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Fall 2019 I replaced the old, black slab, kitchen doors with nicer farmhouse doors with bead board inserts. Then Jan 2020 had a MI and then C19 hit and the drawers got put on hold. SWMBO wanted “farmhouse”. Just now (Apr 2021) trying to update the drawers. They’re black slabs with cheap white plastic pulls and the fronts are inseparably attached to the cheap 1/2” plastic coated MDF boxes. Old “bottom dollar” non-wood, stapled drawer. I neede...

Small hiccup

04-03-2021 01:15 AM by Busy_dad | 0 comments »

After I picked up the tablesaw, I started cleaning it up. Getting some of the surface rust removed and cleaning up the mitre slots. The saw had an old V belt and as I started the saw it made a terrible sound. As I watched the blade come to a stop I noticed that it had a significant wobble in it. I didn’t measure it, but it was probably at least 1/8”. As I turned the blade by hand you could see that the arbor was bent. I was pretty disappointed, but I still felt that I had gotten...

The beginning... #1: New tablesaw (to me)

04-02-2021 09:10 PM by Busy_dad | 0 comments »

Recently I was checking out Craigslist and I’m always looking for tablesaws. Usually hoping for that once in a lifetime deal on a nice cabinet saw. But I came across an old craftsman that had a few extras that caught my eye. I already have an old craftsman that I inherited from my dad, so I wasn’t really interested in the saw, but it came with: a biesemeyer fence, a hitachi TR12 router, incra jig ultra (not the LS), a speed controller for the router, and a shop fox mobile base. ...

Table saw recommendations

03-21-2021 01:19 PM by Jabba | 10 comments »

New to this site. I have read many reviews on table saws but I’m still on the fence. I’m doing my wood working in my garage. I only have 115 volts available with 25 amp service. I’m looking at Harvey table saw C200-30 ($2199), hw110c-36p ($1399) plus shipping of $349 and the Laguna F2 ($1399) plus shipping of $99. I don’t mind waiting since many table saws have longer than normal delivery times. So, I want to get the best table saw for my price range and try to stay around $2000. Any suggesti...

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...

WIP: Outfeed Table #1: Build One to Throw It Away

03-19-2021 06:02 PM by mawilsonWCR | 3 comments »

In 40 years of writing code, I’ve applied the practice of “build one to throw it away” an extraordinary number of times. It works because you learn a great deal about the problem as you build that first version. If you do it right, the second version is much cleaner code. This week I applied the same principle to a Fusion 360 design. As I was attempting to create drawings for the outfeed table, I discovered a few things that really needed to be changed. Back in the desig...

Small Projects #42: Indoor Car Stereo

03-14-2021 03:22 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Have had this idea about building a home stereo (glorified AM/FM) out of a “one DIN” car stereo. Saw someone make a beautiful zebrawood case for an old Marantz receiver and got the bug to make a wooden stereo of my own. Continue reading for build details … I’ve got a beautiful piece of wenge that I’m going to use for the front and top. The plan was to use cherry for the ends but things change. The wenge is very dark and the cherry was to be a light contrast...

A Project for March #8: Build a drawer

03-14-2021 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laundry Detail this afternoon…meant about 3 hours in the shop, while the Laundry got done… Last glue up was removed from the clamps… Not too bad? Means I can better size the parts to the drawer. Front needed a trim on the ends, and a swipe or two along an edge….same with the 2 sides. Already had one corner dovetailed… So, now I needed to get the other end dovetailed…Same as before..Lay out the pins, first.. Saw the lines… Cut a k...

Load up the washer, unload the clamps.. Work on cleaning up the corner joints…will address the front of the plywo...
