have to wait until next weekend on the Pine.   Decided to try and resaw some scraps into a fancy-schancy box...


Did NOT go well...got to the point I even tried this thing out..


Was too much like work.   Turns out the lower (drive) wheel on the bandsaw needs new bearings.....IF I can get the old ones out.  And IF I can even find the new ones...

Well, today, decided to clean the scraps up....with a #5 and a #4 plane..


Mix of Ash, Maple, Oak, and Cherry....had to build a jig to hold things still



had one more piece of Cherry..


Was a tad long. so it was cut into two roughly the same length halves, then a try at ripping them,  to see if a thin strip could be done..


Seems to be burning just one side of the cut?  I have some 1/4" panels I can put to use..


And a larger panel I can get a lid out of..


Have already ripped along the glue line....may turn the lighter one into a side panel?   I also swept the floor, again..


Well, the can WAS empty, before all this happened, today.  Closed up shop for the day, after I dug up the model number on the bandsaw


No. 113.27350.....Emerson built, 12" Craftsman Bandsaw.   NO...buying a new saw is NOT an option right now. 

Will see IF I can get the old bearings out, find out what they are, and find a place that sells them..locally. 


Maybe by the time the Pine gets here, I will be ready for it?

Stay tuned...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
