  1. Bellota saw handle

    Hi to all, this is the new handle I made for an old spanish rip cut saw, "Bellota´s trademark". The plate has 40 or 50 years old (I think) and it is much better than the "bellota" news. It had a terrible red straight handle, and now is like part of your arm. The handle is made of apple wood (An...
  2. Glass Bottle Bird Feeder

    It's not an overly complex project and I do think that it really adds to the look of the yard. You will need some rot resistant wood (Cypress in this case) and a glass bottle. You should pick out the bottle ahead of time, as it will dictate the dimensions of the feeder. Ours was $1 at the local...
  3. Roubo Workbench

    I started a blog about this build but discovered I enjoy the woodworking process more than the blogging process. Here's the rundown. I followed Chris Schwarz's plans… of course. Dimensions: 34" tall, 22.5" wide, 76" long Top: construction 2×4's and some reclaimed redwood 2×6's from a deck that...
  4. Wine Caddy (sort of)

    I found this piece of wood (and a few of it's brothers and sisters) when I was taking a load of yard waste and scrap wood to the local fiber yard. The guy next to me was unloading his trailer and trowing them away. Originally they were cut offs from a decking project. They were branded...

    Hello, I'm looking for suggestions on how to use hand tools (I have/use Japanese tools because I work on the floor, but the concepts should be universal?) to rip cut 8-quarter stock into 1/2" thickness. Thanks!

  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello, I would like some advice on rip cutting a 2×4 (4 ft. long) into two 1×4's using a table saw. I have a home-built sled with clamps to hold down the lumber and keep my hands far away from the blade. My question is-if I cut half way through and then flip the board and do the other half, is...
  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I am very new to woodworking. I've been watching a lot of youtube and built some small projects, but I'm feeling a little wary of my table saw. It's a 10-inch craftsman, which I know isn't a great saw, but it fits my budget while I'm still deciding if I have any talent for this. I'm trying...

    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...
