Printer Table #3 (Everything else but the finish)

04-10-2008 02:59 AM by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

Hey Everybody, In this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker I finish up my printer table. Everything but the finish that is as the title states. I was planning on this being the last episode but as i wanted to show the finish i decided to extend it into a four part series. In this episode specifically though I go over installing drawer slides, making a simple tongue and groove door, and mortising for hinges by hand. Well I hope that everyone enjoys this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker. ...

My first chest of drawers (small)

04-04-2008 04:37 AM by Jimthecarver | 11 comments »

I built this small chest of drawers from scrap wood that was just laying around the shop. It started with a phone call from my Dad. He had explained that he needed a small chest with 3 drawers to fit between the beds in his fifth wheel trailor. The measurements of 14.5” X 18” X 27” was a tight fit so I decided to use the space wisely and not have an overhang on the top. I decided to use the Herring bone pattern on the top to use up a few small scrap pieces of Oak and Maple,(...

Holier than thou, or the meek shall inherit the wood? #2: Days 2 and 3.

03-24-2008 04:14 AM by Bill Butler | 5 comments »

My shoptime allowance is spotty at best, however a couple of solid days in the last few weeks has allowed me the time to finish milling up all of the wood for my bookcase. Up until recently I hadn’t really had a design in mind for the first prototype of the bookcase to rise from the wood of the old church pew. It is now starting to take shape. It will have 4 shelves, 2 fixed and 2 adjustable. The shelves and the risers are milled to 11/16”. The planned finished dimensions of th...

Table saw system upgrade #1: Table saw system upgrade - the end product

03-21-2008 02:30 PM by Sawdust2 | 13 comments »

It’s almost done. Actually, the saw end is usable. I haven’t cut the place for the Russeau router insert yet. The two major advantages are this is about 2” less tall than my other system which makes it far more easy for me to use and it is much easier to move. The extension is two pieces of MDF laminated and a piece of white board glued to the top of that. In my earlier design I had drilled into the extension and fastened the top to the right side of the saw w...

My new shop system

03-20-2008 06:04 AM by Sawdust2 | 14 comments »

Table saw system upgrade A few years ago I got a good deal on an Xacta fence for my Jet contractors saw. That meant I had to come up with a support system for the extension table. !I decided to build a system that would hold the saw, provide some storage and also hold my router. That way I could get rid of my router table. At the time my shop was quite a bit smaller than my current shop. So this is what I came up with.It was functional but it wasn’t pretty.This year I decided that I ...

Delta Unisaw #6: Video of it running with/without pulley on

03-11-2008 02:17 AM by Kevin | 21 comments »

Well I have both a video of the saw with the pulley installed and a video with the pulley pulled off. It doesn’t show as much in the video as I hoped it would. You can barely see the throat plate moving across the saw with the pulley on. I can assure that it is much worse than the video shows. The biggest difference you notice while standing near it is the sound change from with a pulley to without. I don’t know if the video picks that up or not. Oh well, I guess it was wort...

Delta Unisaw #5: Motor update

03-10-2008 04:46 AM by Kevin | 15 comments »

I ended up having to get the motor worked on. Would have done it myself it I had known it was going to cost me $200. Well, new bearing, new insulation, and a good cleaning. Now it runs just great. But, the saw still vibrates too much. The only thing I can think of to do now is to pull the rotor out of the motor and have it and the pulley balanced together. Anyone have any other good ideas?
