New Shop! #11: Finished (Years Later)

07-29-2016 02:24 AM by Ryan Haasen | 0 comments »

Let me first apologize to those of you who were following my shop build back in 2012 – I forgot to post the finished product! I suppose my incomplete blog is the result of a combination of excitement with my new shop and just being busy with woodworking, school, and life in general. I know that if I was following a build and they failed to post the complete shop, I’d be a little ticked off! Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the shop. I will beg...

My First Stanley Hand Plane (#3 Type 13)

07-29-2016 01:41 AM by YusukeKomiya | 1 comment »

I paid about $60 for this beauty on Ebay. I was looking around for some cheapo rusty plane but when I saw this one I knew I wanted it. The knob and tote are in great condition. There is little rust and pitting. Most of the japanning is still intact. I still plan to clean it up to make it more pretty. I can’t wait to finally have square stock (which has been the bane of my past woodworking experience growing up before I knew better XP). I was about to buy a planing machine until my broth...

Workshop Build #1: Introduction

07-29-2016 01:39 AM by prad | 0 comments »

Here I’ll layout the undertaking of turning our old stable shed into a 20ftx20ft open shop. I ain’t got no camera so for now it’ll be pictureless, my wife may be so kind as to provide pictures with that smart phone of hers. We purchased a 1/3 acre property in a small town in Minnesota, it came with a house from 1900 and shed which we found was an old stable from before the house stood. It was and is still currently sided with stamped galvanized panels which I hope to re...

Moving to Texas #1: The beginning

07-28-2016 10:38 PM by jburklow | 0 comments »

Hello, My wife and I are getting ready to move down to Texas and it is a very daunting task every time I look at my shop. It is going to be a huge undertaking to get all the machines prepared for moving. While we will have movers I will still have to break down the machines the some degree so they can be transported. I am wondering if there are folks out there who are or have been in a similar situation and if they have any advice. One of the biggest issues I will have is that since there are...

Been liking the looks of the diesel locomotive for a while so it’s time to build one.I have no where to put it lol but just want to build it and won’t be happy till I do. So here’s the diesel locomotive plans I found and using for the build.I blow this up on the printer till the wheels were 1” then I knew the train would be on scale with my other cars. I would swear I took 10 or more pictures but 5 was all I found when I got ready to blog. I took a...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #7: Glue up and test fit.

07-28-2016 08:11 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 1 comment »

Yesterday and today were big days. Our shop welder made some steel plates and tapped & died some holes to receive the 1/2” all thread. I mortised out an area for them to go on the bottom of the top main runner. Then I glued the main runners together and let them cook over night. Today I put everything together and test fit the cannon in the carriage. Fit like a glove! I did have to notch out the elevation plate so it would sit lower. I also cut down the elevation wedge to make the c...

Healing Hand Journal #1: How I almost lost my fingers **Warning Graphic Images**

07-28-2016 04:25 PM by chaneg | 5 comments »

I am fairly new to this website, and new to the furniture making hobby, but I am not new to woodworking or power tools in general. I have been using this same table saw for over 15 years now. On July 10th 2016, I had a shop accident with the table saw. I did not have a blade guard on the saw (Never do), nor was I using push sticks or grippers or anything like that. That was my big mistake. I was ripping a piece of 4/4 cherry down to 1 5/8” pieces. On my final pass thru the ...

Magnetic Clamp Pads

07-28-2016 03:54 PM by Kent Shepherd | 6 comments »

I thought I would start offering quick woodworking tips, and try to do them more often. Running Shepherd Tool & Supply by myself can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but I really want to share some of my experience on a larger scale. I was doing a glue-up the other day and became frustrated trying to protect the already sanded legs on a table base. The long side is about 60”, so I had trouble reaching both ends to keeps my scraps in place for pads. I managed to get it done but...
