  1. Miter Saw Stand

    This miter saw stand is based off one Norm built. I built this about twelve years ago while preparing to build our second house (I did all trim work). Still have and use it today, but after a move to a new house, I've found its too large for my shop space.

    Here is a rocking horse I made for my sons first birthday. Its made out of red oak with golden oak stain and a poly finish. I hope he likes it.

  3. Ornamental Bracket

    Brackets like these are very common in the New Orleans area. Typically a house would have 3-5 of them on the front facade. My team made eight of these for two separate houses. Each bracket has upwards of 30 or 40 separate pieces that we hand cut. The finial (the point on the end) for this...
  4. Wooden Jewelry (cuff links pendant)

    I was inspired to give making some jewelry a shot. Small work is definitely not my usual forte so I had a number of items scrapped at the bench before getting to a final ones I was happy with. It was nice to put a bunch of exotic scraps to use though and have basically instant gratification...
  5. Scrap wood for mitre saw tuning

    Gary Katz has shown two methods to check and set a mitre saw for square cuts: Two-cut calibration I used the four-cut method: The first pic shows the cuts made to get the square and mitre (right & left) settings tuned. It took me well over an hour to get them right! The last two pictures...
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all. I picked up the Incra 1000se a few weeks ago to give me some more support when cross-cutting longer pieces, and for the indexed angle setting ease-of-use factor. I had a heck of a time getting it square, but finally got it to an acceptable setting. 1. The last time I used it to trim...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey LJs, Take a deep breath, maybe grab a cold one, and settle in for a long story about calibration. I just finished this, after an hour and a half or so of writing, and I apologize in advance for the thesis I've written here. I couldn't help but be as thorough as possible. It's not...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello LJs, I am new to woodworking and recently purchased a Grizzly 0555LANV, the 14" Anniversary Edition. This is the first bandsaw I have ever setup, so I have been slow to get it going. I had to wait for dry weather to shellac the table, but that is finally done. Today I have made progress...
  9. Wood & Lumber
    Hey LJ's , Another ignorant question? LOL! Had a recent discussion with Matt Cremona. He owns an Expensive Wagner inductive type moisture meter. almost 400 dollars? Not making enough in woodworking to warrent it. After talking with Matt I decided to check out Amazon and found a RisePro...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Around 8 months ago I attempted to joint some eight foot boards on my 6" jointer and ended up with some serious cupping. Tried over and over without success. I eventually had given up and ordered a new Grizzly G0490x. I figured the parallelogram bed and spiral cutter would make my life...
  11. Woodturning
    Hi.I am having a problem with my wixey digital readout "wr550"calibration coming out with negative reading. I've followed the directions but it ends up with neg. #. I've taken the batteries out (and replaced them) put back with no difference. This started after we truned all the blades on...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey, Has anyone moved a Hamer A3-31 such that they had to remove the beds? I'd like to buy one, and it seems that the only feasible way to get it into my basement shop is by partially disassembling (removing the beds and maybe the cutter head). Might be a bad idea - buying a new Hammer and...

    The start of a good thing With time it seems that things change. It has been a year and I have baby #2 on the way. This, in turn, has taken up the guest room and the proposed room off the garage for a workshop will now become the guest room. Things at my job are picking up and I will be...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Having received a moisture meter for Christmas I was wondering if there is a way to validate the readings it is giving? My first thought was to take a piece of wood measure the moisture content with the meter then weigh it (I have a pretty good balance here so I think I can get a good measure...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I took delivery of a new Grizzly G1023RL tablesaw late last week and have been slowly cleaning it up and assembling it. I used a precision straight edge to line up the cast iron table extensions, but it seems no matter how much I fiddle with it, I can't get them completely, perfectly flush with...

    I just want to wish all lumberjocks a joyous ABCDEFGHIJKMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ!
