    Re: The Woodworking Thread



    Ponzetti's on 144st.
    They have another store in Salisbury.
    Been working for them on and off since 1974.
    They started on the boardwalk in 1962.
    Some pics of a T-Shirt display I did for them a few years ago.

    Re: The Woodworking Thread

    Couple of new updates...

    Finished my lumber rack in my garage. I had multiple live edge slabs on the garage floor and had to get them off.

    Also, almost done my sweet yard sale find - 6" Craftsman Jointer. Just need new blades and this restoration is done!

    Re: The Woodworking Thread

    It's been a few months since I updated this.

    Let's see...

    Right now I'm building toyboxes for my kiddos for Christmas. I'm getting close to being done with them, but I need another strong push this week. Here is one of them with the weathered oak stain I'm using:

    It's going to be a shaker style chest with a 6" apron around the bottom and a chamfored edge lid.

    Re: The Woodworking Thread

    I also put in a gothic-style picket fence around my back yard. We are thinking of getting a dog next spring/summer, so I wanted to make sure our back yard was fenced in. Also, with little kids, it's nice knowing that I can have them out in the back and not worry about them escaping... :)

    Dust deputy is a must! I also have another bucket filter in line with it first to take out the big chunks.

    Re: The Woodworking Thread

    I'm not very good, but I love woodworking.

    I have a black and decker contractors table saw with router table attachment

    Dewalt GE (1959) 5hp, single phase radial arm saw with 16" blade, they don't make them like that anymore. My favorite tool in the woodshop. Plus it tends to frighten people unused to radial arm saw work. As long as you only do cross cut or cross cut dado's with it, it's the best thing since sliced bread. Plus when tuned, it's perfect every single time unlike the circular saw. Accompanied by a table saw, you have most of the cutting power of the woodshop. Bandsaw not withstanding, but I don't cut my own slabs (though I would love to so I can make my own cuts of apple trees).

    Bunch of hand tools and clamps

    I want to make a few more bookcases, a crokinole board, an 8' mirror frame, and a gaming table and a shuffleboard table (but would prefer to find a thrashed one on Craigslist and plane it down and restore it). Plus various shelves for the house closets. However my wife won't let me do it because she says it takes up too much time. I could likely speed things up if I just didn't sand so much and learned how to use hand planes.

    Fantastic find! I wish I had one. And a bandsaw.

    Really can't run it without one.
    Here's my old Crescent 36" bandsaw :)

    Super cool!

    Re: The Woodworking Thread

    Things I would like to learn:

    Bandsaw

    Jointer planer

    Learn hand planeing and what variety of planes I would need to go from slab to a board ready to finish, plus from stock lumber to a board ready to finish.

    Soaking wood to make a bent wood piece without having to resort to multiple thin strips. I want to make a quarter inch to half inch [yikes! That sounds almost impossible] fence around a crokinole board.

    Put my figured wood into a worthy piece. I have quite a collection of figured wood piece.

    Find a mentor near me I could learn from

    Pass my projects down to my kids and grandchildren when I pass into the afterlife. Also hand my wife's grandfather's pieces down to my children and make sure that they appreciate them. He was a cabinet maker by second job and a tool maker for a ship company where he made extremely precise frames/molds for parts. The one bookcase I have from him is incredible, I need to take it apart to really see how it was made but I can't bear it. I just guess at the back.

    Right now I like to put great finishing on projects, finishing and sanding until the poly attains a mirror finish and then waxing that. Ultra smooth, like plate glass.

    If I can ever figure out how to get pictures to post on the board, I'll post some of my figured boards and my appletree slabs. My old neighbor (Carpenter) said that they used to use apple wood to make horse feeding boxes because it was so tough while being so light.
