    Craftsman 113 Tablesaw refurb

    Back in the fall of 2014 one of my neighbors was moving and set this old tablesaw out for trash pickup and being the scavenger I am it wound up at my house. It sat out behind my shop for about six months. It was already in pretty rough shape when I moved it to the house and sitting outside...

    Weekend is coming...

    ...and it might be a productive weekend in the shop. I was going to make the trip into Columbus for the Woodworking Show but today the Governor put the kibosh on gatherings over 100 people due to the coronavirus so that show has been cancelled. Looks like there won’t be any sporting events to...

    New toy

    I was given this from a friend and fellow woodworker. He built a nice bench for his Dewalt sliding mitersaw and he hasn’t used this so he thought maybe I could.

    Something New for Something Old

    My daughter, Sarah, asked me to build this for her. The sewing machine is a Singer Model 66, manufactured September 9, 1919 that was originally on a treadle base. It had been left sitting outside so when she got it all the original wood parts were falling apart or gone. My son-in-law made a nice...

    Another Disston for the Collection

    I picked this up last week at a little antique consignment shop while on vacation in Frankfort, Mich. for $10.00. It's a Disston 112 with a medallion that dates it between 1917 and 1940. I was able to narrow that down to early '20's after doing a little research on the Disstonian Institute...

    Slight Distraction

    When we moved int our home twelve years ago the porch posts had been replaced with plain 4x4 treated timber. The second summer after moving in I built these fluted column wraps from 1x pine lumber to get a more classical look. After ten seasons they were in need of a new paint job so they got a...

    Queen Anne Redo

    The one remaining historical feature in our 1890's home is this cool little Queen Anne window. My initial plan was to pull the window out, clean everything up then re-glaze, repaint and reinstall. Upon further inspection I see that a lot of the wood, especially in the muntins, is pretty well...

    What's all this yellow dust?

    Well, it's Memorial Day weekend so it must be mating season for the pine trees. I don't believe I have ever seen this much pine pollen in my life. Every time the wind kicks up you can see a yellow cloud of dust coming off the pines. Everything in my yard is coated with a nice layer of fine...

    A Pain in the Knee

    LOML decided last week she was tired of watching me limp around my gimpy knee so today I went see the ortho surgeon. Looks like sometime in the next few weeks I will be undergoing a partial knee replacement on my right knee. It's an outpatient procedure so I'll be home the day of the operation...

    Auxiliary Router Fence

    Since I've added the router table wing and new fence to the table saw I felt that an auxiliary router fence was in order. I wanted something I could hook up dust collection to so after a bit of research I decided on this style fence. The faces are adjustable from zero to three inches and I will...

    Anybody up for S'mores?

    I built these for my son's wedding reception at the request of his wonderful bride, Rachel. It's basically a 6" wide by 48" long box about 2 3/4" deep. The crown molding around the outside dictated the depth of the box and the width of the trim around the top on this set. There is a piece of 1...

    New Old Stuff for the Shop

    I recently picked up this Craftsman 12" table Saw from a friend who was cleaning out his garage. Cost me a whopping $75.00. First thing I did was replace the extension wing with my router table to gain a little floor space. This past weekend I picked up the Excalibur fence and installed that...

    Competition for Saw Stop?

    Anybody else see this? I happened across this yesterday while doing some research on a Bosch 1611 router that I found for sale. This was just posted yesterday on The Wood Magazine site.

    Well, my son-in-law talked me into going to the Columbus Woodworking Show this Saturday. I haven't been to one in a long time. I'm wondering if i should have LOML take all the credit cards out of my wallet before I head out?

    A few ornaments

    My wife asked me to make a few ornaments to give as gifts to a few friends. She needed twelve and each one had to be unique. I glued up some walnut and maple and some walnut and cherry and cut them into 4 1/2" long blanks and just started turning. These are the results of a few hours of relaxing...

    Minor Kitchen Remodel

    It wasn't exactly how I had planned to spend 5 weekends of the summer but...... It all started the first week of July, I knew we had a leak somewhere in the roof over the kitchen but I didn't realize how bad of a leak it was till the monsoons hit. A small hairline crack in the ceiling that...

    Allis Chalmers 190 XT (in cherry)

    This is probably one of my favorite projects ever. I built this for my father in law in 1989 for Christmas. He passed away about a year and half ago and it was recently given back to me for safe keeping. I've also built a couple of Farmall M's and I have a John Deere "B" and an Oliver 1650...
