  1. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hi there I am building some big sliding barn doors for a closet - they are each 8ft.x6ft.4" and they consist of a frame joined with large dominos and some ship lapped wood inset in a rabbet routed to the back of the frame- the rabbet is going to be 3/4"x3/4". I live in Europe (where we don't...
  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am beginning to make stave bowls. I used my radial arm saw to cut the bevels using a rip blade. My first two bowls were made from pine. Worked out perfectly. Today I started to make a bowl from cherry and maple. I cut the bevels on the piece of 3/4" x ~15" cherry. No problem. When I tried to...
  3. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Had some kickback yesterday (nothing too bad and I never stand directly behind the blade) and it got me thinking. One of my side jobs entails me talking to people about TS and other WW tools. People often state that they can 'control' kickback and are quick enough to react. Let's look at the...
  4. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been working with my hands, and my brain, since I was 14, and worked in several fields. Started carpentry in high school, rough for residential and commercial though I was trained in fine cabinet making. In my early twenties I worked in finish carpentry, fine cabinetry and high-end...
  5. Woodworking Skill Share
    In the FB forum-Woodworkers and furniture builders projects, tips and tricks-someone posted a pic of kickback from planing three boards at a time. Someone replied, "Never plane 3 pieces. The rollers can only grip 2 of them. 2 points make a line." Being a woodworking newbie, would someone...
  6. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Newbie woodworker here… Was trying to make a box for a wireless speaker kit and forgot to cut the grooves in the piece before cutting the four sides. Using a Freud box joint blade set a 1/4", I proceeded to cut grooves on each of sides individually holding it down and against the fence (also...
  7. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I was ripping about an 8" piece of 2×4, and was using a push block, though the cut was a fairly wide 3". Evidently I didn't finish pushing past the blade, and that piece of wood kicked back straight into my push block with enough force to bruise my palm, slightly sprain my wrist and torque my...
  8. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    For the most part, I've never really had any injuries with the tablesaw (needed 4 stitches from a chisel injury though. Those things are dangerous) until this past weekend. I was cutting a small (1" x 1" x 4") piece of walnut to turn on my new lathe and my saw vibrates quite a bit. I pushed the...

    Well once again I'm turning to the collective brain trust of Lumberjocks. I have a late 90's 3HP Delta Unisaw with original Unisaw fence which I've restored & been quite happy with other than 2 safety points: 1. There is no riving knife or splitter (though I know there are aftermarket...

    First Steps Carcase Construction We've started a new kitchen island project. This will be interesting in many ways but for one, my wife and I are doing it together. She has recently developed an interest in learning woodworking and wants to try building the island with me. I don't have any...

    Building Office Cabinets A few years ago I became interested in wood working again. It was probably after I bought a Craftsman table saw from a neighbor for $25. I already had a band saw, a drill press and a sander. But my previous foray was interrupted by a divorce, marriage and 4 moves. It...

    Time to get back to it! So it's been a few years since my last blog post. Since then I've gained a son, but lost a lot of free time. This year, though, it's time to get back to it. I have plans to built up my garage shop in anticipation of heating/cooling and insulating it next year. My...

    Right Between the Eyes I was trimming some pieces of a "Spagnuolo" cutting board… well, its more like a trivet (8" square). I was using my father's saw, he has nicer blade than me and I needed a glue line cut on these. I had just finished pushing the piece (8" long x 1"x 1") through when BAM! I...

    This is What Table Saw Kickback Looks Like (Warning: A Little Graphic) I have a Ridgid R4510 portable contractors saw- its the new and improved version that replaced the TS2410 and it's a great saw. The problem is, when I bought it they did not yet have available a dado insert so I made my own...

    One Day Too Late I finally made myself a zero clearance insert for my table saw. This happened today only because I spent 4 hours in the emergency room yesterday to have my left palm stitched up. Yup, I have officially joined the ranks of the injured woodworkers; bitten by my own table saw...
