Fun with my Tablesaw yesterday

01-21-2008 06:51 PM by John | 6 comments »

Hello all. I went out into the shop yesterday to build a miter saw cabinet to get the saw off the floor. I said to myself “Why don’t you check the miter slot to blade parallelism It’s been a while”. It was out by a 1/16! So I get the socket wrench and a dead blow to tap it back in and I don’t have enough adjustment in the trunnion to get it parallel. Lots of head scratching followed by lots of disassembly resulted in the saw top upside down on the base. I cleaned...

Delta T2 Fence #6: How to setup and install on a Craftsman tablesaw

01-19-2008 07:58 AM by Jamie | 14 comments »

Since I have installed the Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman tablesaw, I have had a few people asking how I installed it, especially, how I installed the fence so that it would zero properly. For those that are thinking about installing this fence on a craftsman, you WILL have to drill new holes in the rails. You can use one of the existing holes, but you will not be able to ‘0’ the fence. I wish that I had taken pictures of each step to further clarify the information listed be...

Wood Scrap Box #1: Parts and Pieces

01-17-2008 09:19 PM by CutNRun | 4 comments »

Two days before Christmas, my wife casually mentions that she would like a jewelry box. Hmmm, don’t think the timing was very good. Having completed the 2×4 project, I decided to try to put together a jewelry box from the small pieces of wood laying around in my shop. I had a decent amount of 1/2” cherry, some figured maple, some oak, and a small amount of paduk. After spending a few days laying out a design and seeing if I had enough wood, I started cutting and gluing.Th...

Tool cabinet #7: Top mounted tool chest

01-17-2008 08:54 PM by CutNRun | 10 comments »

While it isn’t quite done, I’m about 80% complete with the companion chest to my tool cabinet. The carcase is completed and together, the back panel is done and ready to mount, and the drawers are all cut and dry assembled. I need to finish sand the drawers and glue them togther. Some coats of finish and drawer liners and it will be ready for tools. Should add some bonus shallow drawers to what I have already. The drawer fronts of the chest are figured maple to match the top d...

The Craftsman's Path #22: Queen Anne Side Table - Cutting tenons on the aprons

01-14-2008 05:55 AM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!

2 x 4 Project #1: A one entry blog

01-08-2008 08:56 PM by CutNRun | 13 comments »

Yesterday, I posted a taper jig project. The taper jig was used in my entry for the 2×4 Project. Before the taper jig was made, I had to locate a 2×4 to use. This was relatively easy. I knew a local lumber yard carried very high quality Douglas fir dimension lumber for use in finish work. I located a completely clear, tight grained 8’ board. The only downside was it cost substantially more than the typical big box store stud. Oh well, this is for FURNITURE, not being st...

2X4 Winter Contest #1: The beginning

01-07-2008 04:16 AM by Jamie | 4 comments »

Well, I started working on my 2×4 project today. Last weekend I picked up a bunch of 2×4’s at Lowes to construct a new lumber rack, with 1 to spare for the contest. I was a little afraid that one 2×4 wouldn’t be enough to complete the project, but it looks like I will have a few scraps left. I cut some of the pieces today, 4 – 18” long pieces have been jointed and edge-glued together to form one plank (needed it to be a little longer than what is r...

Ezee-Feed Manufacturing #2: Ezee-Feed Demo

12-13-2007 02:56 PM by David | 16 comments »

Click for Hi-Resolution Video Woodworkers throw away your roller stand once and for all! My last Ezee-Feed video was a bit of a teaser as I unpacked and started the installation process. Well I finally got the Ezee-Feed system installed on my saw. What a sweet accessory! I have a very small shop. This system allows me to cut sheets of plywood without any help. As a side note, my saw guard was left off for clarity while shooting the video . . . something I would not do on a regular ba...

First Things First - Safety

12-11-2007 06:16 AM by CoolDavion | 3 comments »

I had a couple hours to myself on Sunday. So I took advantage of the time and “upgraded” my table saw. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a feather board at Hartville Tool. I know I probaly could have made one, but that’s not the issue here. Anyways, back to Sunday. A couple of quick cuts and a few counter sunk holes, now I feel a little safer using my saw (or at least I will the next time I use it). It was a little “mini-project” but still I feal I accom...

Cross Cut Sled #1: New, and far more accurate crosscut sled

12-09-2007 02:18 AM by Jon3 | 5 comments »

NOTE All of my photos have been migrated to a new provider, and the links in my posts are likely out of date. You can find the photos here. My old crosscut sled sucked. I made it before I acquired a lot of knowledge, but I’ve been dragging along with it for a while. I did some test cuts the other day, and realized just how out of shape it was, so I decided it was time for a new one. So here comes the Cross Cut Sled Journey! I decided I wanted a fence with a T groove on it, s...
