A computer desk #10: Been busy, need to get caught up

01-17-2019 07:00 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Where was I? Had some mortises to chop? Well, I set up the router table, to mill grooves to hold all those pencils/pens Needed a few of these chopped out. Backer strip for the pencil holder..Was going to use the thin Ash strips…..went out and bought a 1/4” thin strip of Poplar, instead.. Rather than a full width hole, I made them to accept a notched end….drawer shelf is now full depth….dry fitted Had to trim the poplar a few times…kept wanting ...

Bench #2: Started

01-17-2019 06:23 PM by Stofrank | 1 comment »

The top of the bench is made from reclaimed maple church bench seats built in 1937, that was acquired a few years ago. What was interesting was that seats had been positioned in the round, each of them had a inside and outside radius that would have to be cut off so I had straight edges to work with. Each section was 15” wide x 1-1/16” thick and about 8 feet long. I wasn’t sure what the finish was on them and I didn’t want to damage my planner blades, so I ended up sanding down to the stain...

Vintage hand tools in my shop #1: Bench appliances: Mitre jack

01-17-2019 05:54 PM by theoldfart | 20 comments »

Some time ago I stumbled across a mitre jack in an antiques shop. I had read references to them here on LJ’s so I knew what it was. I had to do a repair and a lot of cleanup to get it working. After that I had to figure out how to use it on my bench. Once I got that figured out the next step was to chase down some accessories for it. Eventually I found both the saw and the plane at Jim Bodes site. This video is my first attempt at doing a video so things can obviously be improved. Pr...

I guess I did it wrong.

01-17-2019 01:10 PM by Orvile Baker | 2 comments »

I sent this to projects and I guess that was the wrong place to put it . I wanted to make sure my friends on Jocks got it. (no-name) to put in here or forum, hope it is right this time because 3 other Jocks said it happened to them overnight. I ham just trying to warn good people to be on the lookout this. My mother-in law lost a lot of money about a year ago on one of these scams. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR IT! As I checked my email as I do every day I found this and was thinking that I sho...

How do you organize your shops?

01-15-2019 01:25 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

This time I have two simple projects. Over the course of a year I accumulate a bit of tools and left over scrap stuff. I also have a tendency to have things follow me home from yard sales, estate sales, and auctions. Now don’t get me wrong, I plan on using EVERY tool I bring home, at least once. Sometimes though I look around the shop and think “Why do I have this again?” or “Why do I have so many breast drills? I can only use 1 at a time”. Do any of you suffer w...

Drill Press #2: Drill Press Table - Still Learning

01-15-2019 12:09 PM by Emanon | 4 comments »

While goofing around with my drill press (aka The Beast), I was amazed that it required a bunch of clamps to get the wood to be still enough to actually do some drilling. Bolstered by the encouragement from some friendly folks on this site I decided my next foray into learning will be a drill press table.After my first project, I figured a simple design would be best for me and use something on I saw on TV. Essentially one side of the table fence moves and the other remains at a pivot point....
