  1. Zero Clearance for Circular saw

    I lowered the base plate of the circular saw until the blade didn't stick through. I used heavy duty double sided tape to adhere a 3/16 inch scrap birch ply piece. I then turned on the saw and lowered it through the birch ply creating the zero clearance. As you can see in the last picture I...
  2. Redwood Burl Table

    This burl had tear out that went all the way through the wood. I used a copper tinted epoxy to fill the hole. There is also some gold tinted epoxy filling some other tear out. It is built on an old sewing machine base.
  3. Table Saw Extensions and Storage Box

    I made a simple box out of 3/4" plywood to use as a small storage bin for easy access from the table saw. I also made the rest of the extension out of 3/4" plywood. This coupled with my router table extension gives me some nice working space. I had been wanting to do this little project for a...

  6. Stool Sample......

    I built this still so I could see how well I like the design. So far, I line it pretty well, but I think I'll modify it with a deeper seat, making it more square, and I'll experiment with scooping the seat as well. Anyway, it's made of SYP, the legs are 32" long, and the stretchers are...

  8. certificate frame and photoframe

    In Japan, when you win a prize for a contest, you usually get a certificate (document), and one of my niece just got one for a drawing contest. I promised her to make a frame for that, and here it is. It's zelkova, and used a router bit called, "Hyo-tan" in Japanese (maybe " Radius Roman Ogee...

    Okay, I have scary-sharp irons, and I understand there is a right direction in which to plane with the grain, have read stuff in FWW, etc. But it is not until I have pulled a chunk of grain out that I know to turn the piece around or stand at the other end of the board. How do you plane-wielding...
  11. Hand Tools
    So, Some shepherd infill hand planes (smoothing and shoulder) have come my way recently along with a collection of Lie-Nielsen and veritas planes. The Nielsen and veritas planes have found a happy home but I'm looking to part ways with the Shepherds to cover costs on the others. I know they...

    I've never tried segmented turning before, but I decided to try it in the marble tower I'm building. See the link here: http://lumberjocks.com/Woodcanuck/blog/16213 I've done the initial turning (as you'll see near the bottom of the post) and I'm not as happy with the result as I'd like to...

    Ok, so I am following McLeanVA's blog on how to make a zig-zag cutting board, and while running my boards through the planer I got a major chunk of tearout on one piece. Now because this is a cutting board I know I want all my pieces tight and no holes or gaps for bacteria to grow, so how do I...
  14. Finishing
    I have a walnut board with a beautiful area of crotch that I'd really like to feature on a jewelry box-but of course there's tearout from my planer around that area. I don't have a handplane that can plane it out, and I probably could sand the heck out of it….and make it about 1/16' thinner…...
  15. Finishing
    Hello! Long time lurker, first time posting. Thank you for all of your contributions and consideration to make this site a very valuable resource. I am making a table from ash wood. I started removing hardened glue with my hand plane and landed against the grain. The end result is some pretty...

    I'm new to Lumberjocks. I'm just getting started on a live edge, i.e. Nakashima style, coffee table for my daughter. It's my first live edge project. I'm sure I'll have a number of questions as I go along. But the first one has to do with dealing with the knots, especially the sapwood-colored...

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone has any ideas on why I'm getting a ton of tear out when making raised panel doors with a raised panel router bit on maple. I'm using a Porter Cable 2 1/4 horsepower router, and a Freud raised panel bit (new). When making practice cuts on 3/4" plywood, I had no...

    I'm beginning the planning stage of making a small-ish table for my entry hall. I want to make the legs, stretchers, aprons, etc from sapele, and am considering the drawer front (and maybe top) from birdseye maple or some other figured maple. I don't have any experience selecting these species...

    I need a drum sander apparently. For years I've read people talking about the struggles with figured hardwoods and I thought they just didn't know how to sharpen things maybe or didn't have a jointer and planer with carbide inserts like me. Of course as a tool and lumber collector I've wanted...
