PA German Sawbuck Table Reproduction



This is a reproduction of a sawbuck table at the Landis Valley Museum. I tried my best to use only hand tools, but there may have been the occasional slice of a bandsaw blade along the way. The wood is curly cherry, and the finish is shellac and wax. The cool features about this project are sliding, half blind, and through dovetails; tusk tenons; and lamb’s tongue profiles. You can find the links to the construction process here: villagecarpenter.blogspot.com

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



William asks…

Wiring to a work shop?

What size wire do I need for service to a workshop. I will need to go through attic and under ground. Total about 130 ft.. I will need to run a 30 amp Rv traveltrailer and small woodworking tools; table,mitre saw,small a/c, light,etc. Thank you

Denny answers:

For a basic workshop, I usually recommend a 60 amp sub panel. #6 copper or #4 aluminum is usually adequate (if you use TW or UF conductors you would need to increase the wire size by one standard size). While the size would be more than adequate for your current anticipated use, you would have plenty of reserve for possible expansion in the future without worrying about overloading the system.

Mandy asks…

woodworking help…?

I really want to get into woodworking/carving, especially carving cool pieces of wood with a dremmel tool. Space is limited in the garage and stuff. any tips on getting started?

Denny answers:

Take a 2×2 board 8 feet long, draw on it to look like chain links. Remove everything that isn’t part of the chain. Whittle the links apart as you go. When you get done you will have a very unique wooden chain. I have seen them sell for a lot. When you get done post again and I will give you instructions on the next step. Be patient this is very time consuming

Betty asks…

how do i convince my dad to turn his shed into a workshop?

hey, I am a 12 year old boy who loves woodworking and i have heaps of tools, i have been wanting to save up for my own shed but they are too damn expensive… and we already have a shed but it is full of crap that half of it we don’t even need anymore, if he said yes i would clean it for him and stuff, even if i only got half of the shed it would still be enough. how do i convince him, he is a tough cookie to crack too… thanks

Denny answers:

Well, for starters, I know exactly where you’re at. You see, I started my woodworking at 11 years old to now being a master woodworker by trade. In my beginning, I to had a very stubborn father who liked to do things only his way or no way. We had this back room in the house that always seemed to be cluttered with stuff that no one ever used. You know, junk…The problem that I was facing is my father really never knew at the time how much interest and actually how creative I could be with the various woodworking projects that most would suspect a grown-up to have done. Like you, I was convinced that my dad wasn’t going to really cooperate with me by granting me the privilege of transforming this “junk” room, into a useful, learning environment. So this is what I did. I first cleaned the room in its entirety, paying close attention to what was actually garbage & what was not…I simply tossed all the garbage on trash day & as far as the remaining, “junk”, I built some storage cabinets out of some scrap lumber & stored this remaining clutter nice & neatly inside. I was able to attain 75% of the room for a efficient, workshop environment. I was still skeptical on my father’s reaction prior to the unveiling of my efforts. Would you believe that not only was he overwhelmed, in a good way, but he financed the remainder of $ to help build the necessary workbench & remaining storage cabinets to make this shop complete. I’m not saying that this is the solution, but it could be part of the recipe… By what you have already mentioned about your interests in a hobby shop, you’re on the right track…However, your choice of words seems to be a little distasteful for your age. I only mention this because when I was your age, if I were to ever say any kind of four letter word, I would have gotten punished in a physical way, which was severely wrong at the time & I highly disapprove. Please take this advice for what it ‘s worth, because the best thing about it is….It’s Free!!!
Take care & I wish you the very best in your bright future….Oh, & one last thing, No matter what, “Always measure twice & cut once”…You’ll see……………………………………………………………………………………………….
