Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #2: Wheels for everything

01-25-2014 08:28 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Well, I haven’t gotten much done on the shop remodel since i first posted. I can heat the shop but the temperature has been so very cold that hunkering down with netflix is what ends up happening lately. I did do some sheetrock taping after I got the bench out and I do have plywood and mdf waiting on saw horses to be cut up for the new assembly table and table saw base. But, I did get my order of swivel 3” wheels with brakes from harbor freight. After looking at Dusty's review ...

Table Saw/Router Combo

03-18-2014 02:58 AM by jcfernan | 2 comments »

Welcome to my first project and blog. I am new to woodworking, well kind off, I have done some small projects back about 12 – 15 years ago. After having the tools in storage for 10 years I am getting back in and have acquired new-to-me tools. First I would like to say that this was not what I had planned for my router table. While I was looking for ideas for my simple Router Table (RT) I came across zzzzdoc set up and immediately my plans changed, I went from a stand alone cabinet to...

Side project #2: Flag project time filler

04-22-2014 02:46 AM by BJODay | 2 comments »

The main project currently in my shop is my nesting tables. My wife and I have them stained. I working on varnishing. I’m using a wipe-on poly before assembly. It is time consuming and I can only do a few of the parts at a time. So, while I’m between coats, I’ve been puttering around with a side project. I saw this at a restaurant. It is an American flag made out of painted baseballs. I thought I’ll make a smaller version using ping pong balls. I found cheap balls ...

Delta 36-725 Zero Clearance Insert

01-24-2015 08:22 PM by ilyac | 2 comments »

So This is my first in what i’m sure will be a long line of upgrades to my Delta 36-725 table saw. A zero clearance insert. I decide to make this out of 3/4” King StarBoardĀ® HDPE (though I could have used 1/2” in retrospect). A few reasons for this. First of all, I live in South Florida, keep my saw in an un-air conditioned garage, and it gets humid down here. So I wanted something that will be impervious to humidity. This stuff is naturally slippery, and can really take ...

Woodworking Journey #1: Thoughts about CNC routers and the essence of woodworking

02-19-2015 01:32 AM by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

Last weekend, I joined a couple other sawdust junkies on a trip to the Wood Expo (aka the Peachtree tool sale). Among the displays and demonstrations, there were 4 companies selling CNC routers, and one selling a laser engraver. I think these things are totally cool and the work they can do is pretty amazing. One of the guys with me actually owns a Shark machine and I’ve used it a few times to engrave letters into special projects, but I really don’t have any desire to get one for...

From tree to bar! #3: Get cutting

02-26-2015 04:46 PM by JonoMcHugh | 2 comments »

Firstly sorry for the very late update, but between having to travel up and down from South Africa to Botswana and having to rebuild a new lodge amongst elephants (see photo) I haven’t really had much time to even think about this blog. I got back to the farm excited to get going on the project and quickly identified a few trees that had the right size and shape. But being my first serious project and not wanting to cut down a perfectly good tree only ruin it, I went in search of one...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #4: Panels and Assembly

03-30-2015 04:17 PM by DBrown52 | 2 comments »

The panels on this nightstand are only 1/4” thick, so I re-sawed them to save wood and bookmatch the grain. Edge gluing this thin is tricky, but doable with a few cauls. I don’t think I’ll do 1/4” panels in the future. It looks fine, but it’s light and has a tinny sound rather than a solid “thunk” when you tap it. I think on future projects, I’ll keep it at least 3/8” thick and backcut a rabbet to provide some needed heft. The thi...

"Art-Full Wood Beauties" --by RusticWoodArt

07-09-2007 01:36 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Art-full Wood Beauties passion for wood, is the evident re-turning of a souls imagination, that has seen into the grains of all good, having declared there is a place of spirit knowing no-limitation…. place of substance comes from before my beginning, and as i am now played out before the eyes of other’s, so also will be the moments of my endless giving, while ages roll past as i am drawn into the eternal ether’s…. ....and then there came th...

A small conference table - the build #4: The top is ready for finish

02-02-2009 05:03 AM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Progress! The table top is back, cut to final length, and sanded (sorry, no chance to take photos of my friend’s amazing shop). I beveled the edges, using a table edge bit for the topside, and a small, 1/8-inch roundover for the bottom side. Routing the top bevel free-hand requires much care and concentration, as this bit is large: The bevel profile: I am very pleased with the overall appearance of this table top. The bevel will provide a much bett...
