Scroll Saw Diaries #2: Shop Equipment progress

04-15-2013 05:42 AM by twokidsnosleep | 2 comments »

Not touched the scroll saw in 2 weeks!But I am making progress in getting some shop made equipment done. So Sunday was busy reworking two old dental lab motors that have sat in my garage for 8 yrs! One was an OLD polisher/grinder that had some scary wiring and the other was a model trimmer that will be converted into a disk sander.I took a power cord from a computer we recycled and wired it into the switch and the grinder was running great. It was fun as my 11 yr old helped strip wires and...

Hummingbird Feeder

04-30-2013 01:26 PM by Daris | 2 comments »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Hummingbird Feeder. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in a few hours. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.

Drift Redwood Bench Build #1: Getting things nice and square

01-30-2014 04:48 AM by scruboak51 | 2 comments »

This is a spin-off from my earlier Becoming a Galoot blog. I had high hopes that this project could be a hand tool only project. That proved to be a bit ambitious given my limited tooling and expertise at hand planing. That blog wrapped with the leveling out the top of the bench; removing about 1/2 inch of material over a 5 foot long by 15 inch wide surface (1.2 cm by 1.52m long by .38m wide). This was caused by my hand rip taking an unfortunate dive on the front corner. It may not ...

Small Shop Adventures #4: The quarter loft.

09-11-2014 01:42 AM by BrockF | 2 comments »

I was reading that the upper section of the garage walls right under where the roof joists meet the sidewalls is often wasted when it comes to storage. The article advised that building a wrap around shelf would amount to hundreds of square feet of storage space. Problem was all the plans I saw were very expensive and cumbersome looking without much strength…about 30 pound boxes max. I like the concept itself even though it is not practical in a smaller garage where the door tracks...

Shop Smith Joiner for Sale & Planer

07-27-2009 01:38 AM by jbene | 2 comments »

I lost my dad to lung cancer almost two years ago. His passion was his talent of working with wood which I am going to miss tremendously. Because I was such a fan of his work and my husband also enjoys tinkering with wood, my dad left his wood working tools to me. After his Joiner & Planer have set in my garage for 1 1/2 years, I have made the decision to sell them to someone who will be able to use and enjoy them as much as he did. Although after he purchased them, he became ill so t...

11-06-2009 06:13 PM by RedWoodzard | 2 comments »

Hers another pic, but it seems when I try to add more than 1 pic in the blog they dont appear in preview. Im not sure if this is a lumberjock limitation, or tech issue with the linking site. So it appears im only being allowed to post one pic per blog. Hopefully im doing something wrong, and I can get beyond this limitation soon.The measurements are as follows 9 1/2 inches long. 2 inches wide, and 5 inches tall with the adjustable lever being the highest ref point. Its small, and has a very g...

pyrographics #1: using each others talents

12-23-2009 12:06 AM by Jim Earl | 2 comments »

I often look over all the new projects displayed here on LumberJocks and think how lucky all of you really are to have the talent to be able to make so many and beautiful peices of ART. I have worked with wood for over 30 years now, everything from construction, finish carpenter, cabinate maker, craftsman and now wood burning. Many of you have seen many of my peices of work but several have not been posted. I have produce over 300 pictures in the last couple of years, and try and do alittle m...

Built In Closets #5: Pre Finishing and Sub Assembly

11-08-2010 05:01 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Having the bulk of pieces, cut and sanded, I elected to tape and pre finish most of the components. Finishing large projects is a huge challenge for me as I work in a 3 car garage and can not easily spray stuff. Since I was finishing many large panels, I decided to try applying the clear coat with a floor roller. Since I like their other products, I decided to use a Zinsser water based poly. It worked as well as brushing does, however, the coats go on thick and you need to watch the rol...
