New shop! #8: Shop Essentials

08-29-2016 03:52 PM by Steve Felsheim | 0 comments »

While working on the dust collection pipe installation fiasco, it was brought to my immediate attention that 26 ga metal is sharp. So… Figured I may as well get the fire extinguisher while I was at it. Having a fire is the wrong way to be reminded of getting a fire extinguisher :-) And, equally important, High speed internet. My shop is in the middle of nowhere, so no traditional Internet options (cable/DSL) are no good. I had two options, satellite or cellular. Sate...

New shop! #7: I couldn't take it anymore

08-29-2016 02:29 PM by Steve Felsheim | 8 comments »

I was hoping I would not need AC in the shop, but, clearly I do. So, off to the big box store. Got a 14.5K BTU through the wall unit. Now to poke a hole in the wall and slide it in. I wanted it as high as possible on the wall so its never in the way. It came with a remote, so I don’t have to climb a ladder to use it. All done. Works great, just removing the humidity made a world of difference.

Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #9: Completion!

08-29-2016 02:01 PM by mountainaxe | 3 comments »

The last steps in this project didn’t take too much time. First, I attached the front top panel to the two hinges. Next, I attached a guide support made from two 1/2” plywood pieces to the rear upper wheel cover. This piece also has two hanger bolts to mate with holes in the front upper wheel cover. There are also two thumb nuts and bolts for adjusting the blade guide. The blade guide fits over these bolts and can slide up and down by loosening the nuts. I next screwed the m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1769: Continuing the Fairy Tale . . .

08-29-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I awoke this morning and came down the stairs, my cat (Richard) was sitting in my studio room, staring at the floor vent. You all know how cats can be. Just – well – looking . . . (and looking. . .  and looking.)  It kind of creeped me out. The house in which we live is old. My studio is on the first floor, right above the basement. The basement with the stone walls that many of the 150 year old houses in this area have. The basement that had several mouse traps ...

Miter Saw Station #1: Cabinet Refinish

08-29-2016 05:35 AM by slingham | 0 comments »

Earlier this spring, my dad brought over his old cabinets that he’d used for his shop workbench. He’s had these longer than I can even remember and is finally upgrading his set up at his shop and offered them to me. I’ve been wanting to build a miter saw station and was planning on trying the Jay Bates station when I had the funds available to buy all of the necessary lumber. Now that I have these cabinets, I’m going to utilize them to do a sort of hybrid version ...

Harbor Freight Workbench Improvement #2: Completed the Wagon Vise

08-29-2016 01:31 AM by bobasaurus | 0 comments »

Completed the wagon vise today. I flipped the top over and bolted it down: Then planed everything flush with the top: I bought a wood owl “overdrive” bit for drilling the dog holes. It was a bit grabby and needed chips cleared to continue drilling, but worked great overall. Here is the jig I made for drilling them square and aligned: And it’s done! Some test planing, it holds the pieces really solid without any lifting off the bench: So ...

A brief tour of Amish OFF-Grid, mostly air powered, Woodshop.

08-29-2016 01:26 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

I was in Pennsylvania, Lancaster a few weeks ago and came across this most unusual Wood Shop I’ve ever seen. For starters, have you seen anybody replacing an electric motor on their drill press with the air motor?? :) Some of the tools he had were more modern than mine (generator powered), yet there was not a single electric light in his shop. It is a 4 min video. Enjoy!

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #26: A Sub (Panel) Plot Thickens...

08-28-2016 11:33 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

‘Okay,’ you might ask, ‘Where has this guy been since posting this last February?’: —Nothing permanently assembled yet. Now to work on tool layouts, so there’s more to come! The key to that post was it’s ending: Nothing assembled… and that’s where we’ll focus now. The ‘tool panels’ created in the last pair of installments are on the doors known as CherryR and CherryL. And now I’m calling them sub panels because they...
