New Router & deck completed

01-19-2009 08:56 PM by Jarod | 3 comments »

So I picked up the Freud router from HD that was posted here on LJ a few weeks ago for $99. Haven’t had much time to use it yet though. I spent this weekend building a 10×20 deck in my backyard. Real simple, 2×6s for the frame & 2×6x20’s for the surface. I’ll take pics later. Right now i’m sore as hell. The next task is to clean out my garage & build some storage & a table for my new router. I haven’t picked up any router bits ye...

So disipointed with Penn State.

02-27-2010 07:26 AM by bigfish_95008 | 3 comments »

During the Christmas break I sent an email to Penn State Tools trying to get information on converting my older, bought used, DC-1B dust collector from 110V to 220V. I had checked their site and there is no info what soever on the conversion or even a PDF of the owners manual. I didn’t hear a word from them, but it was Christmas so I cut them some slack as all you would get if you called my office would have been voicemail. I sent another email requesting the same info in mid January. A...

Shop Journal #1: Shop Safety Outside of the Shop.

09-08-2010 07:16 AM by Brian Havens | 3 comments »

The other part of home improvement that I do not like is that I seem to be much more prone to injury doing home improvement projects. more....

Coffee table in progress

Finally got a couple of days of warm weather in my part of the country. My wife wanted a coffee table and three end tables. So the adventure starts, these will be the first real furniture that I have tried to make. After watching the Video by Charles Neil, I got inspired to get this project started. Went to the wood store and got some walnut for the legs. In the picture below you can see that I have the legs ruffed to size and my first mortises cut by hand. I made a test tennon and they c...

Dust Collector Series #5: Intake pipe installed

02-22-2012 04:20 AM by Martyroc | 3 comments »

Ok, so not much done as I am short on lumber. I installed the intake pipe and put some temporary supports until the epoxy dried. I expect to do more on the weekend, i am going to the woodworking show in Somerset NJ on Friday so I cant see any work done that day and Saturday I really need to CLEAN THE SHOP. As always questions, comments, ideas etc hit me with them. Epoxied in, not as clean as I would like it but I don’t necessarily make show pieces for in the workshop. ...

Raised Gardens #2: The Blocks

04-25-2012 10:15 PM by Marc | 3 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. Since these gardens are going to be placed right at the end of our patio we decided to make the sides facing the house a little more interesting than just some redwood rails. We stumbled upon this company that sells wooden tiles for use indoors and really liked the look so we decided to give it a try ourselve...
