Men's Valet Box

16 days ago by Blackie_ | 9 comments »

I’ve had a few ask how I make my hybrid open top men’s valet box, mitered joints mixed with bandsaw box. This is a design that I came up with one day while out in the shop and just let it take shape and made some changes along the way, under each picture I have given detail on what’s taking place and the procedure. Laminated boards to create a working block, square up the block sides using any means necessary, you want the block as square as possible. I like to use kno...

Easy Build Workshop Stool.

38 days ago by David White | 5 comments »

NOTE: A PDF version of this post and the Sketchup model are available in the downloads section of my blog. If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....

A pressurized board steamer you can make quickly

875 days ago by shipwright | 12 comments »

This entry was prompted by this forum topic. I thought it would be of interest to look at a different kind of steamer that is capable of creating more, hotter steam than the average atmospheric pressure ones that are limited to something around 212 deg. F and less at altitude. I don’t have access to either my rusty (but still trusty) old steamer right now or the photo of it that I know I have at home so I did a quick 2D of it in sketchup. Several years ago I designed this one to be p...

Pin Router Jig

160 days ago by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

A while ago I put up a project where I made some straight wooden track, compatible with Brio and Learning Curve (Thomas) track. Since then, I have kept in the back of my mind how I might easily and cheaply make curved track, switches, and more easily form the male and female ends (without buying expensive, specialized router bits.) I believe I have found the answer. A pin router jig. I first learned about these from a video by Jim Steinbrecher, and later by a much clearer and concise ...

New SketchUp Video Tutorial Site

346 days ago by JSB | 12 comments »

Hello fellow LumberJocks. After much persuasion I decided to make a video tutorial site for SketchUp geared towards woodworkers.

Everything there is of course completely free. If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to drop them in the Contact form on the site. I hope this can be of some use to someone. Have a gre...

1935 16ft Garwood Speedster Replica #3: It looks like a boat - sort of

343 days ago by ccanderson102 | 1 comment »

Last night I finished cutting out the stringers with the circular saw and and smoothing them with my Stanley No 7. I just couldn’t resist. I just had to see what she will look like in real life. the “chine log” is a piece of scrap i used to visualize a fair curve. For that I think I will use white oak. Any suggestions? Even the wife the visualize the end result! Next up is a ton of epoxy work encapsulating the frames floor timbers and stringers. Its no...

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks This is my first blog so I hope I get it right. I bought a used 733 a few months ago that did not come with a dust collection hood. After getting it home I had to try it out, ran a pine board through it and blew chips and dust 5 foot . Well being frugal as I am, no make that cheap I decided to try and make something to get me by until I could find a factory hood. This is what I came up with, I have been using it for a few month...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #12: Getting a roof on the workshop

460 days ago by Serradura | 7 comments »

The big wall was repaired, but to get the roof on I needed to put the steel beams on the side wall, and one on the street side wall. The problem is that the street is so narrow, that if would put the roof on in a conventional way, it would stick out of the wall at least 15 cm. It’s not that I had nightmares about the farmer from next door getting thru the street with his tractor and hitting the roof, but he scraped the wall before so… I had to come up with a solution. I jus...

Arts and Crafts Nightstand #6: Drawer Pulls, and Installing the Top

438 days ago by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Time to install the drawer pulls. My hardware requires two holes drilled 3” on center.-----I use this little jig to make sure all the holes are aligned correctly. It is a full-sized pattern, and works for the 6” and 8” drawers. I use Scott Collins “No Math” method to layout the pull location, which is discussed further in my dresser blog here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34346-----I register the left edge of the drawer against the stop on ...
