  1. Trio of Bandsaw Boxes

    I threw these together a few weeks ago using some scrap lumber and plywood I had lying around the shop. The focus was to create some different shapes and play around with the bandsaw. Tung oil and paste wax was used for the finish.
  2. Off cut end table.

    This weekend I wanted to clear out some off-cuts. I made some into boxes which I will post here later. I started off by cutting short left over 1/2" walnut, bubinga, cherry and maple into 2"squares. Had no idea what they were going to be. Once cut I glued them to a piece of 1/2" maple. At this...
  3. Necklace Hanger

    I needed one more gift for my lovely bride this Christmas, and this little project was just the ticket. It turned out to be her favorite! My bride loves making necklaces and had asked me if I could make her a simple hanger to get them off the dresser. What she described was nothing more than...

    This is from American Woodworker. Update: I'd like to warn people to take the advise to some of the comments like: Tony says, "Make sure your miter slot runs parallel to the saw blade." If not, adjust accordingly. Rick says, "Dick: You said it twice and so did Karson I agree. I've owned...

    Hi, So I purchased a used Minimax Fs35. The tables are flat when measured against themselves but are not coplaner. Unfortunately, I only have experience with adjusting parallelogram beds and am not sure how to adjust these. I assume there will be shimming involved, but I'm not sure how to...

    Just got an email from Peachtree on Irwin adjustable wrenches. Looks like a pretty kick butt deal on these guys. I have been looking for a good set at a reasonable price and it looks like this is it. It's a 4 pack deal for $28! Heres a link. http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_070511.htm...

    Not sure if this is the right forum but… My kitchen cabinet doors have 3 hidden hinges per door (13×39). One door will not no lay flat against/parallel to the stile. It is aligned with the other doors horizontally and the vertical gap seems ok. I can push the door flat to the stile but it just...

I had some requests and PM's to blog on the making of a wooden shoulder plane so I will give it my best shot. Be warned, I work in...

    Band Saw Out of Whack Today my band saw decided it wanted some attention. I admit have been just changing blades and running lately. Today it held a small rebellion. First thing I noticed was a sort of knocking sound as it ran, so I turned off the saw, unplugged it and investigated. The 1/8...

    I few years ago I bought the Ridgid saw with the Granite top. Steel City makes one just like it. Might be the same for all I know. But the rail that guides the fence is split into two pieces. (probably for shipping) The piece of plastic that like a pipe nipple joins the two bars is not...

    OK - I know this has been covered but I can't find it. So the first question is about how to search the site. I wanted to find a post about adjusting the fence on a crosscut sled. I tried a number of different words to search but nothing came up. How would you search for something like this...
  14. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I have a "new-to-me" 1965 Craftsman 8" table saw model# 113.24280 I am having difficulty getting the blade parallel to the miter slot, because of how the trunnion assembly is attached to the bottom of the cast iron table top. I am familiar with Delta Uni Saws where the table top is independent...
