Fixing my obsolete ryobi miter saw blade guard

08-19-2019 01:08 PM by moco27 | 0 comments »

I’ve been using an old ryobi ts1340 10 inch miter saw for years. It’s lightweight and dependable. I had a friend of mine try and change the blade while I was working on the roof. He didn’t know what he was doing and took things apart that shouldn’t have been apart for a blade change. He didn’t get it back together right, made a cut and cut off the bottom half of my blade guard. The saw was dangerous even after the guard was properly placed on the saw since...

Matching Wood Stain & Finish (using a new generation of stains)

07-28-2019 01:45 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I learned a lot from a professional finisher recently when he taught me how to match stains and finishes for this project. I had a customer bring me a broken part and wanted me to make a replacement to match. The woodworking was the easy part for me – the finish was the hard part. My wood finisher has been in his field for decades and he didn’t want me to pursue finishing from the “old ways”, but taught me using the new generation of finishes using acrylics. This...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #104: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart

07-18-2019 01:28 AM by technoslick | 9 comments »

The Dungeon Workshop continues to be a war zone, but progress is being had, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y. This evening I finished one of two identical dust control builds, based on this YouTube video: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart | Dustopper & Ridgid Vac Carthttps://youtu.be/WyBuRjO54NM I liked the space-saving design of John’s design. Floor space is at a premium and I need a portable system, one at each end of the workshop. This is what the first unit looks lik...

Taper Pins - What a great tip!

07-09-2019 11:16 PM by totalrewind | 1 comment »

Inspired by a design by David P. the Drunken Woodworker, I recently built a picture frame sled for the tablesaw. Nothing too surprising there. Only instead of using toggle clamps I chose to use taper pins as endorsed by Sandor Nagyszalanczy in his EXCELLENT book “Woodshop Jigs & Fixtures” (ISBN 1-56158-073-2) What a taper pin is, briefly, is a pin… that’s tapered. (Woa. Slow down, there.) I guess they’re a top secret machinist’s trick for getting parts ...

Through Tenon Repair on Windsor Chair

07-01-2019 03:46 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 4 comments »

I tackled a more challenging chair – a continuous back arm windsor chair. This had 6 through tenons in the arms and 2 through tenons in the seat. All of these were wedged and needed to be disassembled, new wedges made, and glued up all at once. I share my technique for keeping my chisels razor sharp too. I hope you enjoy this one! https://youtu.be/92deV01eWFU

Miter frame clamps - small, weighted tightening

06-30-2019 10:17 PM by MrLaughingbrook | 2 comments »

I wanted to assemble some very small mitered frames and my band-clamp was way too big. I decided to make a small miter frame string-clamp. Start with a block of 3/4” Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene: Cut a 90 degree V on the long edge and sliced off 1/2 thick pieces: Drill holes overlapping the V to give corner relief. Add a 3/16” hole as a path for the string on the 90 degree from the face: Chamfer the holes and trim to size the short length of three ...

New desk for my computer #4: raise a panel?

06-30-2019 04:27 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Many ways exist…and I tried a bunch of them….router tables…..table saws…hand planes…..then watched how paul Sellers did his…..thought I could also just use a old Stanley No. 4…...well, i changed a few details, along the way…first, i cut a blank to size….and figure which face looked the best….Then mark a “stop line” about 1” in from the end.. I had also jointed the edges straight and smooth…they were a bit r...
