Shop Notes 100 Ultimate Router Table Step by Step From a Green Horn's POV #3: Rip Phase Trial and Error and Distractions

05-22-2011 04:48 AM by Yupa4242 | 3 comments »

Started cutiing down all the hardwoods today and managed to get this much done does not seem like much but It was touch and go. I was working from the suggested cut pattern in Shop Notes below: I had to retune the fence once again It was still off about 1/16 on measure but i don’t trust it. But i did manage to get the fence parts and drawer cut down only to notice they needed to be thinner I was lucky to have caught this before crosscuting the 12 pieces. I got sidetracked severa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #977: Everything Updated - Newsletter Sent

03-07-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday I actually reached all of my goals. I must have set them too low. (Just kidding!) It was one of those days however where I did stay focused the entire day and was able to tick off things one by one and I finished just about everything that I wanted to get done for the day. It doesn’t always turn out that way. It is a good feeling to accomplish like that. I finished all of my new pattern packets, answered dozens of emails and filled orders, did my part of getting the sit...

Grizzly G0715p #1: Setting up shop

06-13-2013 06:59 AM by bcurlee | 3 comments »

Setting up my home workshop hit a major milestone today with the arrival of my Grizzly G0715p table saw. Like many home shops, space is a premium followed closely by mobility. Of all the saws I researched, the Grizzly provided the best set of features I was looking for and priced right. The setup and adjustment was very straight forward. Using my carpenters level I was able to level the extensions and tune the fence in less than 30 minutes. The blade and t-slots were aligned perfectly ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1125: On to Making Pattern Packets

09-07-2013 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I had a really productive day yesterday. Not only did I finish painting the last of the new Halloween Key Ornaments and Petite Ornaments, but I also had some time to pre-cut some of the wood kits that I am going to be offering for the two sets. There has been a lot of interest for the wood pieces as well as the patterns, and I am happy to be able to offer wood. Although the keys especially are a bit trickier to cut with all the little bumps and turns, I feel comfortable doing so and I am ...

Vertical Grain Douglas Fir Cabinet Build #1: Carcass Construction

11-11-2013 05:25 AM by Marty Backe | 3 comments »

I found some great vertical grain Douglas Fir in the construction lumber section of Home Depot. Bought three 6”x8’ lengths at ~$5 per board. Always worthwhile combing through their lumber sections – never know what gems you’ll find at construction lumber prices. Decided to make a small wall cabinet for our bathroom. This video is less of a how-to and more of an inspirational video, showing my hand tool approach to building the carcass.

Got the first wing modified to match the second and re-mounted it. Shimmed the saw feet to get the deck co-planar with the wings. Positioned and secured the mounting block with screws.

This is not exactly a restore. This is really more of a tool build. This is the process I followed to make my plane iron cap screw screwdrivers. The blog is a little picture heavy. Here is a link to my blog post on my wordpress blog site. Feel free to add any comments, suggestions or questions. Thank you for visiting my shop blog.

Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #1: Delivery

07-13-2015 06:08 PM by ERQ | 3 comments »

I recently ordered Grizzly’s G0452P Jointer for the small shop I am attempting to set up in my one-car garage. I haven’t even fully assembled it yet, so we’re a long way off from a real review, but I thought it might be useful to someone to chronicle what it’s like to order, take delivery of, and assemble a Grizzly product. I am writing this for people, like me, who’ve never had to deal with the delivery of a (for me, anyway) major piece of machinery and the asso...
