  1. Cheese Board=Apple Pie=Church Fair

    A neighbor came over and asked if I would make her a Cheese Board for a wedding present. I know she is on a fixed income so I went to my scrap box and made this Cheese Board with Black Walnut, Sugar Maple, Paduck, Cherry, Macawood, Flaked Oak, White Limba, European Beech, Santos Mahogany and...
  2. Another Cutting Board from the scrap box

    After making the Cheese board from the scrap box, I decided to see if I could make a Cutting Board from scraps and this is it. It is 12×13 x 1-1/2 thk and made from : Shedua, Yellowheart, Flaked Oak, Black Locust, Purpleheart, Sugar Maple, Paduck, Macawood. I have four boxes of scrap pieces and...
  3. "Lazy Larry" style vegetable tray

    This tray is made from maple and paduck. I will never use that combination again. When sanding, the paduck will blead into the maple and it is almost impossible to remove it. This tray required a lot of jigs to make the pieces as well as to dish out the sections. Next time I will use walnut...
  4. Cheese/Bread board for fundraiser

    When I was recovering in the hospital from my heart procedure, I heard of a fundraiser they were having, so when I got home I took some pieces from the scrap box and put together two Cheese/Bread boards to donate for the fundraiser. First one is 7×13 and the second is 7-3/4×11 and made from...

    While perusing the Grizzly site I came across the 8.5" 1/2hp H0625 and 13", 3/4hp H0626 oscillating drill presses. I was wondering if any LJs have any experience with either of these lil' guys? I like the oscillating feature for sanding (I don't think I'd have enough use for a spindle sander...

    In response to http://lumberjocks.com/topics/27462 , I was blocked so I figured I'd just start a new forum topic… NiCd battery chargers like the ones Dewalt uses charge with a constant current, and detect end of charge by watching the cell voltage and stopping the charge when it droops slightly...

    Hello, my first post and first band saw. I picked this up on CL for next to nothing, thought it would be a great first saw. It seems to work fine after a good cleaning. However the guides are chewed up and the thrust bearing is..well gone. Where can I get guides for this as Sears no longer...
  9. Scrollsawing
    Ok, Im relatively new to scrolling, I have a (cheap) Ryobi 16" scroll saw bought used off Craigslist(like 90% of my shop was). The saw came with a handful of blades which seem to work OK for now. However, Im always looking to upgrade and want to buy some Olson blades. I use Olson blades on my...

    I see many benches with dovetails joining an end cap to the front apron…are these mostly for show? Sometimes it looks like it is combined with a few bolts also holding the end cap on. Is this some form of breadboard? Is that how they account for wood movement? What's the general approach...
