  1. Cherry Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box I was asked to make for a relative. The box is about 15 inches wide by 12 high, by 10 inches deep. The case is made from a single piece of cherry and the grain wraps continuously around the outside. The interior is pine and the dowels are walnut to give some contrast. I...
  2. can't stop us

    -i was a bit depressed when it came down to time to eat before midnight before surgery & i still had not attached or sanded the seat slats…but, apparently, that can be done (albeit slowly) with one hand. I know this is no different than the other benches; it just felt like more of an...
  3. Craftsman 14" Bandsaw Modifications

    First time on here, figure I start posting some stuff. Detailed write up on my blog http://xylotekniche.com/2018/07/09/craftsman-14-bandsaw-modifications/. Basically added a flexible 12V LED lamp (which I found in a trash heap), and a mobile base to the bandsaw. More modifications to come in...
  4. Battery Charger & Drill Holders

    When doing work away from my shop, I like having cases to organize everything. In the shop is a different story. I got tired of trying to keep up with all the cordless drills and chargers I have collected over the years, so I came up with these two cabinets to take care of that. I love being...
  5. Lumber Rack

    My new lumber rack, inspired by the one Marc Spagnuolo featured on The Wood Whisperer. 2×4 studs mounted on a cinder block wall with SPAX screws. Brackets are 2×4 sandwiched between 5/8" plywood. At first, I only put the two full rows of brackets up, but I added two half rows for my stock of...
  6. "Andy-esque" box

    So I got inspired by the boxes that Lumberjock Andy makes, but got too impatient waiting on him to finish his blogs, so…. This box is made from curly maple, curly cherry, and bloodwood. I finished it with poly and wax. It was the first time I actually used a grinder on a woodworking project...

  8. New wheels for wood models

    Here are some new wheels that will give more life to my future models. The truck wheels are made of walnut and padauk, they are 2 3/4" diam. I could have use any other wood color, these are bud type wheels with 5 holes in the hub. I can make any type of wheel hub to fit my model. The car...
  9. Step Stools

    Here are a couple of step stools I made for my son. They are mostly made from lyptus, but I ran out of that so I used some maple for the tops of one. I used maple for the tenon wedges. This was my first time using through tenons as well as my first time with wedged tenons. The mortises could...

    Well, following nearly a year of shopping, drooling, and evaluating I think I am going to pull the trigger on a new bandsaw this weekend. I have decided on the Rikon 14" Deluxe and want to hear all your opinion on this machine. Is this the right direction to go? Bang for the buck it appears...

    I am having problems with my blade tracking. I can get it dialed in (centered on the tire), then once I release the quick tension lever, then reapply the tension, the blade jumps forward about 1/4" when it is turned on. I have also kept the blade tensioning on. When I start it up the next...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    PREVIOUSLY POSTED ON THE WOOD WHISPERER SITE In anticipation of my upcoming tax return I am doing some research on my next tool… a 14" Bandsaw. I would appreciate any input you guys (and gals) may have on my decision process and any insights you may have with particular saws. Currently these...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi guys, I was looking to buy the Rikon 14" bandsaw. For the main purpose of resawing 12" walnut and maple down to 1/16" thick veneers on a regular basis. I'll be cutting lumber about 40" long. Naturally, I was going to buy a dedicated resaw blade too. The 14" rikon seemed to be the best bang...

    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone may be give me some answers to an issue I am having with my band saw. I have a 14" band saw made by American, model#WBS-14. I acquired this saw with a table saw and joiner and other equipment I bought. The band saw needed the brackets for the table replaced...

    This saw is a recent purchase from Craigslist and everything on it works properly. I go this saw to use for cutting bowl blanks from logs and perhaps some re-sawing and also in my construction of Cigar Box Guitars. I am looking to add a riser kit to increase the depth of cut and add some type...

    Please check out the YouTube video I posted. Is this weird "barking" noise from bad thrust bearing(s) whenever I release pressure of the workplace into the blade? If so, can the bearings be lubricated or are they in need of replacement? Thanks all!

    This is from a local CL listing but the person can't seem to give me the exact model number. Can anyone ID this based on these pictures? I was thinking a 28-2XX but I'm not sure what the XX is exactly?

    I bought an Anco 14" band saw (model #185149) at a garage sale for $30, and after doing some homework online, it appears to be similar to many other brands that were made in Taiwan and re-branded. I bought new tires for it and got the blade adjusted so that it was running pretty smoothly. I used...

    I have a Rikon 10-325 14" Deluxe Bandsaw. I am using a 111" x 1/2 carbide tipped blade (US made). I have seen resaws with this blade and they are flawless. My problem…. I have set and adjusted the saw several times but the drift on the blade is over 1/2" front to back of the table. After...
