My Home Made Thickness Sander #6: Mounting The Table

01-19-2012 08:31 AM by lew | 3 comments »

The final major part of the assembly is the table. The piece of ¾” Melamine is from the scrap box at the local Vocational School and the piano hinges are pieces left from a project made for my brother in law. The top is reinforced with a frame of ¾” plywood on three sides and a 1” piece of oak on the hinge side. The hinge is then screwed to a mounting/adjusting bracket that fits between the two sides of the frame. A slotted hole in each side of the bracket allows for vertical adjus...

#1 Son and I did some running around today…and spent a few dollars. We found a great piece of Padauk for the State Fair project and were seriously tempted by the Worksharp 3000! http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/05/padauk-of-earl.html

Ever changing small work shop

04-18-2013 12:33 AM by poospleasures | 3 comments »

This is really an update to “my shop”. I look at all the great shops on this site and do pick up a lot of ideas. I hope that some of you will look at my shop and be able to do so also. I have been doing this a long time and like many of you have many secrets hidden away from sight and would like to discuss your shop and its many secrets. As I do not do this for a living it would be nice to talk with others who just love to make things.Vernon

Tablesaw build/refurb

06-07-2013 08:17 PM by Simon2822 | 3 comments »

Well, it’s been a while since I have done any serious woodwork (too long) but what I have done is complete a tablesaw build.Some of you may have seen the question I asked when I came across the oportunity to get a free table saw: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/41959Comments were varied, from don’t touch it to grab it while you can. Well here are the results. First job was to strip off the fairly flimsy frame and set about building a new one.The legs are fairly substantial 3̶...

String inlaid box #8: Edging the edges

09-03-2013 02:49 AM by JeremyPringle | 3 comments »

My Labour day was a good one. Spent quite a bit of time in the shop, and my son decided to tail me around all day, it was nice having some company in there. Pick up right where I left off last night…. I cut up some maple strips and glued then into the corners where I left space for them when I made the box. Then I used a plow plane to make the same size grooves in the top and bottom edges The I cut and glued in those pieces as well. Once the glue cured for a while, I rem...

Building boxes #1: Cutting outside pieces.

I have decided to make boxes. My first one I’m going to make simple. It is going to be 6”x10” . Here is the pieces for the outside of the box. I am making it out of soft brown maple. The sides are 1/2” thick. And the depth of it is 3 1/2” tall. Here is a picture of them.

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #4: New assembly bench underway

02-01-2014 09:22 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

The past couple of days I’ve been putting together a new assembly bench. My new fangled work bench, although a great bench, is going to my ‘soon to be’ son in law. It’s a super bench for those who use a lot of hand tools. I don’t that much but do a lot of assembly. This bench will fulfill that purpose. It will be 50×52” when finished. It’s the exact height minus 1/8” of my table saw so it will also be an outfeed table. When I make the new m...

James Krenov Inspired Case #7: Oil, Shellac and Wax Finish

04-13-2014 09:49 PM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

Just a quick video showing how I put the finish on the piece. I start by using boiled linseed oil, move on to spraying two coats of shellac with an HVLP gun, and finish by adding a layer of wax. It came out wonderful!

My Version of the $175 Workbench #5: Done, but not Finished

06-18-2014 11:02 PM by jonah | 3 comments »

The bench is done, the holes are drilled. The top is mostly flat (note all the shavings covering the floor). I put the first coat of finish on today. These pictures are all pre-finish but post-sanding. Here’s the top with my rehabbed #7 posing. It probably took an hour or two, all told, to flatten the thing. It’s not perfect, but it’ll do. It’s mostly flat edge to edge, but I think there’s some waviness end to end that I couldn’t di...
