Maybe the beginning of a larger project #22: No brushes, so worked on the mast mount

08-12-2013 02:36 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

I couldn’t find any brushes and I don’t like shopping on Sunday so I thought instead of painting I’d just work on the mast mount. Now I’d initially had this really complicated mount in my head (a dark and scary place at the best of times:-) but after a bit of advice, from shipwright, on how strong the step would need to be I simplified my plan. So I squared up a piece of Douglas Fir I think I got from my Dad before evening leaving the College, so its a well t...

End table set - build #14: Wrapup - final thoughts

02-11-2014 05:13 PM by Ottacat | 3 comments »

Overall I was extremely pleased with this build. In terms of time spent it was one of the quickest projects I’vd done. I almost spent as much time blogging about the project as I did building it. I estimate it took me a maximum of 24 hours actually construction time for both tables. This was spread out over a couple of weeks and lots of non-working time was spent while glue-ups dried, ebonizing steps dried, finishes dried and so on. If I was building another set I would do a few thin...

Workshop Development #106: Clearing the (compressed) air.

06-06-2014 05:47 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I did some additions to my compressed air system, by adding a Central Pneumatic Desiccant Dryer / Oil Removal filter, and coupler bracket. I also chased down the last few leaks, and replaced a defective replacement regulator on my HF 8 gallon compressor. Not sure if you remember, but I managed to cause at MY fault on the original regulators fault, the destruction of the OEM regulator on my small compressor a few years ago. If I recall correctly I dropped something on the compressor like th...

Mother and Daughter workshop #1: Demolition!

06-30-2014 06:26 PM by ejvc | 3 comments »

In the new house we have a whole basement room for a workshop! And we have two workbenches (one came with the house in an attic, one I scored at a second-hand shop)! But the difficulty is, we can’t put the workbenches in the workshop because of an enormous MDF table in the middle of the room. The table would be useful to put machines on. But we don’t have machines. And it doesn’t have vices or anything to clamp with. So—tonight we began to demolish this table. ...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Rockin' Ride #1: The SketchUp Design

01-12-2009 02:53 AM by kshipp | 3 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I’ve been designing this for almost eight months now. I planned to complete it before I got deployed in June but I got busy with other things and wasn’t able to really start on it before I left. This allowed me to spend a lot more time thinking about the design and refining it while I was in Iraq. I’m currently home for a short leave so I decided the design is locked in and I’m trying to crank this out in about four days. My niece i...

Tool thoughts #15: Drywall storage rack

03-28-2009 11:09 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

I picked up several sheets of drywall, plus some cement board and even some pegboard in the past year or so… all for very little money ($20 total), and no immediate plans to use it… It has been cluttering up one corner of my shop. Today I decided that I would do something about that. I”ve got my newfangled workbench to complete, and that is going to need a spot in the shop before I can assemble it, Well, here’s what I did to get rid of the clutter: I cut the 2x mate...

A journey into the workshop. #22: Not much shop time this week. But a little bit of progress...

10-15-2009 04:27 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

My big plans for my week got tossed to the curb between dealing with an unexpected cardiac surgery on my BIL, and work running rather late, I just haven’t had much time in the shop. What evening I did have open to myself (tuesday) was hot and humid, (85 degrees 100% humidity, ICK!) so I did not WANT to be out there… I did get 3 reasonable things done since Sunday though… #1. Removed all the junk from on top of the table saw, and workbench and put it away. Considering t...
