Upgrade Your Bandsaw Adjustment Screws

Furnished content.

I own three bandsaws. Two are hand-me-downs from neighbors and the most recent arrival is a brand new Grizzly 17 that I bought. The Grizzly is a great machine but like many of its peers, most of the bandsaw adjustment …Source

Beer Swap 2021

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beer Swap 2021I like to do a theme based on the beer. So this year I chose Voodoo Ranger. The box has a walnut top and cherry base. I used a scrollsaw to cut the figures. The skull is hard maple, blood is the obvious bloodwood and the hatchet blade is quartersawn sycamore the handle is hickory. The painters tape pieces were used to set the top up so I could flush trim on the router.

2021 Beer Swap Koozies

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


2021 Beer Swap KooziesFor the 2021 Beer Swap I put together a pair of can koozies. I started by asking the group which wood to start with and then I went and did what I wanted anyway. I selected some spalted dogwood with walnut and padauk for accents.
I cut up the dogwood stock into a trapezoid with 30 degree bevels, maybe 1.5 inches wide on the long side, about 16 inches long. I also ripped a thin strip of the 4/4 padauk. I glued up the trapezoids with a padauk spacer into several half circles using the masking-tape trick, then flattened the mating faces and glued up the full circle blanks.
After drying for several days, I chucked the blanks in the lathe and roughed out the cylinder. I added a tenon to one end of each and made a matching mortise groove in the walnut end caps which I had already drilled out.


After gluing one end cap on, I flipped the blank and repeated for the other end so that I had a hollow cylindrical turning blank with holes on either end.
You can see how I chucked the inner diameter rather than the outer by this point in the process. I got the outside to a shape I liked and sanded it for finish. I did epoxy fill a few cracks as well. Then I used a china pencil on the bottom of a can to show me the high spots while I was turning out the inside. Its by no mean very flat or smooth, but it is relatively tight and can hold some full cans upside-down. I was surprised at how much difference I found in can diameter, so this usually won't work.After I got the inside close, I sanded as far as my fingers could reach and figured my recipient couldn't reach any further either, and then I slapped on a couple coats of Minwax Tung oil.Cheers to Kenny and crew for another fun swap. Any ideas for the 2022 beer swap item?-JD
