Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #2: A half scale prototype

01-15-2015 08:25 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).

Table Saw station #1: Planning and Mock Up

08-22-2017 01:29 PM by PatesWoodshop | 0 comments »

I own a cheap little table saw that only has about 18 inches of clearance to the right of the blade and wanted to be able to rip down wider pieces. I initially looked at aftermarket fence systems but the only ones I could find were in the neighborhood of 300 bucks. That wasn’t in the budget and a shiny new saw wasn’t either. I watched a video on Youtube where a guy built his own table saw and used T-Track to make a fence. Seeing the price of T-Track was much more within my comf...

Now it’s standing vertically, and the top and bottom are at the correct distances. Note that the middle leg, and the front most leg are warped. I had to go get more lumber and replace them

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 02:48 PM by Thumper2004 | 0 comments »

So I started a while back in designing a new charging station/Tool Storage for my various cordless tools. I was able to continue work on this as I had already cut and assembled the hanger portions. There is still quite a bit to go so it may take a while with life happening. Thanks for checking it out. I can post plans for this if requested.

Introductory blog post

02-06-2015 09:36 PM by WillDyckman | 0 comments »

Hi all, My journey into woodworking has been a rather circuitous one. While I grew up tinkering in my father’s garage workshop and earning cash as a builder’s laborer in high school and during summers in my college years, I soon left the trades for academia. I spent much of my twenties and thirties in post-graduate study of anthropology and international public health, and was privileged to travel the world doing research and (hopefully) contributing some to the public good. ...

Making of a 30" wolf head #2: Part 3

02-08-2015 08:34 PM by grosa | 0 comments »

In picture 1 the head is primed on both sides. I always do the back as well as the front to keep the MDF balanced so it won’t warp. I used whatever was laying around (in this case kills oil base primer). In picture 2 I use a foam backed 320 grit sandpaper to sand the edges,back and face. The reason for the foam back is to prevent the paper from digging in and flattening the corner. In picture 3 & 4 It shows the head painted white. I used whatever was laying around ( in this ca...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #4: Ring Box Base

01-14-2018 02:57 AM by cowboyup3371 | 0 comments »

After last night’s heavy snow storm where I spent about an hour at the shop, my eldest and I went back over this afternoon to finally spend several hours. I finished the basic build of the base to include drilling the holes I’ll need for the music box that is a part of this. Fortunately that included a longer section of brass rod my buddy had to extend the music stopper. This piece will be placed into the main carcass using a stopped mortise and tenon joint once I build it out....
