My attempt at a 3D cutting #1: 3D Cutting Board Inspired by SPALM!

01-13-2012 11:14 PM by RetiredCoastie | 22 comments »

Quite awhile ago SPALM posted his project for a 3D cutting board: http://lumberjocks.com/SPalm/blog/17488 the more I followed his progress the more I wanted to build one myself and thanks to SPALM’s ripping jig and his idea I began building. Along the way I found myself in need of various clamping jigs that would make this project as easy and as accurate as possible. The journey begins:I built the ripping jig that Spalm built and ripped my stock with the blade set at 30 deg. using sc...

Simple advent calendar

11-26-2011 12:09 AM by Stevinmarin | 21 comments »

An advent calendar is a classic Christmas project. Typically, they contain 24 numbered doors and beginning on December 1st, you open door #24 and get a small treat or gift. When you get to #1, it will be Christmas Eve, one day before the holiday. There are many different ways to make an advent calendar. For an absolutely stunning version, check out the one our friend Marc (The Wood Whisperer) made last year. Even Marc struggled with a system to make 24 doors, something I don’t think ...

Table saw miter sled

10-01-2011 03:35 AM by Stevinmarin | 24 comments »

Simple, yet very effective sled for making 45 degree miters. It’s so easy to make, I started it at 11:00 this morning, shot and edited the video by 4:00! This has to be some sort of record for me. Of course, if you make just the sled and not the video, it’ll take about an hour.

Chop Saw Dust Hood #7: Video Of It Suckin' Up da Dust

12-30-2009 07:01 AM by BlankMan | 21 comments »

I shot a video of it in operation in High Definition Video and Stereo (really!) the link is below. I thought I’d show two last pictures of it as installed. The first showing the clearance cutout in the top allowing the saw to swivel (the clearance looks larger then it is due to the angle the shot was taken at, it’s just over a 1/4 inch), and by request a picture showing the connection to the cyclone duct. The swivel clearance. Its connection. Last but not least… ...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #4: Sanding and Polishing the body and metal parts

01-11-2011 09:43 PM by Dan | 12 comments »

In my first blog of this series I talked about removing the rust using Evapo-Rust. The following picture shows my Stanley #4 after it was soaked over night in Evapo-Rust and washed and scrubbed clean. I have polished and sanded the sides a number of different ways. I have done all by hand with folded up sand paper and sanding blocks, I have used my dremmel tool with different attachments and I have used my drill press with wire brush. I find all of these to be way to time consuming. I fin...
