Some of the Lumberjocks are calling me the sander. Last week I got a new piece of sand paper of 110×210 cm (44”x84”) grit 80, so maybe they are right with calling me the sander? Replies are appreciated, but please only serious :)

New Home Workshop #13: Duck!!!! Duct!!

03-16-2018 10:18 PM by builtinbkyn | 12 comments »

Moving forward with the dust collection, today I started the installation of the collector ducts. Oh what fun :( OK well parts were fun, like blasting thru the concrete block into the DC room. But two things weren’t fun – working overhead and working with 24ga. ducts. Not sure why I let them talk me into 24ga., but that’s what I got and that’s what I have to install. I know they’re a little quieter and since the ceiling is low, they’re sure to be imp...

kitchen cabinets #21: Door construction

03-16-2018 02:44 PM by MC | 1 comment »

The three doors, and the only doors on the lower cabinets are finished and installed. I made a couple of errors and took some time to figure a few things out but I am now moving forward with the many doors up top! The doors, like the face frame are 1” thick. With this dimension the standard 1/4” tongue and groove on the cope and stick bits seemed inadequate. The adjustable freud bits I have were easy to adjust for a perfect 5/16”. It did take a few tries but once ...

Ok so, first project done and have learned so much! After many hours of sanding and poly, (which a lot of people do not like the look, but I love it!). How do I care for this piece dusting wise?

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 06:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Moravian Workbench Build #1: Getting Started

03-15-2018 01:06 PM by ElroyD | 4 comments »

A couple of years ago I started to get more into studying 18th and 19th century hand tool woodworking. At the time, I didn’t have a shop, and didn’t have anyplace to put one. During the summer I put cleaned out a section of our goat barn, put up a couple of sawhorses with a solid-core door on top to use as a workbench, and began to play. Then daughter #5 came along. Needless to say, babies take up a lot of time, so things were put on hold. Now that she’s a little mo...
