  1. Shop Apron

    Hello. This is my shop apron my sister and I made for myself. It is largely based off the large apron LeeValley sells. I have wanted an apron for a while now so that I could have some basic tools close at hand and keep my clothes protected from glue and finishes. The upper pocket holds two...
  2. #5 Jack Plane Rehab

    This is the #5 Jack Plane that I picked up from eBay. After using my inherited #3 Smoothing Plane for my last cutting board, I knew I wanted a nicer #5 Jack. My father gave me a beautiful Lie Nelson Block Plane, but the LN Bench Planes are quite a leap up in price. I got this for about $25...
  3. Door harp #6

    This is the lighthouse at Fort Worden State Park near where I live. I used the windows for the sound holes. I love how the grain in the figured maple background looks like clouds.
  4. spatula

    ok here are the spatulas i made that go along with the walnut and maple tray one is the walnut left from the tray, one is some scrap cherry, and the other is left over bubinga. I patterned them after one that we got as a wedding gift several years ago. I made them with a band saw and an...
  5. Morris chair restoration

    After completing my bathroom vanity and cabinet, I decided to work on a simple, quick project. Was I ever mistaken! What I thought would be just retying a few springs, replacing a spindle, regluing the carved additions to the chair feet, and reupholstering two cushions turned into a major...
  6. Dremel Table

    This makes the dremel or any rotary tool even more versatile! I used Leather instead of the weatherstrip they recomend. Any leather will do, an old belt, purse, jacket etc. I also placed rubber hose over the screw threads on the cord wrap as to protect the wire better. Thanks for looking!
  7. Triangle ripping sled

    Since making my first two cutting boards, I've had a pattern for the next one, with triangles, bouncing around in my head. First however, I had to figure out how to rip the stock into accurate, repeatable triangles. I read many posts on here and elsewhere, and decided on this jig...
  8. fence/railing rebuild for raised patio

    I bought my house last year, and in the back yard it has a retaining wall about 3-4 feet high with a length of four stairs going down it. With at least one little one being mobile it wasn't really safe (no gate, no railings, rocks all over, etc.) and this year I wanted my first outdoor project...
  9. Antique Dining Room Table Re-Build

    We bought this table from an antique dealer about 10 years ago. It has a solid walnut top and two 20" leaves. It has a linear screw and crank that you use to make it bigger or smaller. The intent of the original design was that the table length could vary from 56 to 96". To accomplish this...
  10. Childs wagon Rebuild

    Dug my daughters wagon to find the paint coming off in sheets, damn you Harbor Freight. Instead of repainting, wife said I should rebuild it so I could add rails that would actually hold my child in. I didn't ask questions. Base is made from leftover 3/4 plywood from another project, one piece...
  11. Hand Tools
    Okay, so this is a pretty cool piece of history here. Unsure of the maker or era, but I'm thinking early 1900s? The question is this: what do I do with it? I mean, I know what it is, and that it works. Lol. But do I do a full restoration, a partial, as in rebuild the cracked base and weak old...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am in the process of attempting to rebuild and clean a craftsman 113 that has been in a field for about 10 years that my Dad gave me. I have everything, but the saw guard and and miter gauge. Very rusted, but insides seem to work fine except that the arbor bearing needs to be replaced. I...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am rebuilding a 34-802 Unisaw from 1988 and I have the entire saw apart and in pieces, but I can't get the worm gears off the tilt and blade-lifting shafts to save my life. I've pulled the roll pins, the stop collars are sliding freely, but I absolutely cannot figure out what sort of dark...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am in the process of rebuilding an old Atlas Table Saw. I am trying to utlilize a 2hp motor I already have but am conerned with the rpm of the unit. The motor is a 3450rpm 2hp with a 7/8 shaft. The smallest machined pulley i can find is 3.5". This size pulley on my arbor would certainly limit...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Good afternoon, You ever had one of those times when something too good to be true just jumps in your lap. Well 2016 has been that year for me and my shop. First off I was GIVEN a 1970 8" Rockwell Jointer with the long beds. All it needed was a motor and I already had one. I cleaned it up...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello everyone! This is my first post on this forum. I recently got a great deal on a Powermatic 54A 6" jointer. The tool was neglected by the previous owner and had some decent rust on it. I'm in the middle of refurbishing it, and I have a question about how to lubricate/seal any places where...
  17. Woodturning
    Hello out there in internet land! This is my first post on Lumberjocks but I've been enjoying reading what others have had to offer for a while. I am the proud new owner of this beautiful old lathe. I'm starting to disassemble with a rebuild in mind and thought I would post some photos in an...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    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...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I ran into an old Dewalt Radial Arm Saw. This thing is a brute. I took a gamble on this one. It has some rust here and there but it looked like surface rust to me. Any help on where to locate parts and the table itself would be greatly appreciated. Here are some shots…
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I could use some help from folks that are familiar with the PM 66 tablesaw. I bought the used several years ago and I really like it except for one thing, they're noisy compared to other premium cabinet saws. It now seems like it is even noisier than when I got it. The saw uses two drive...
