Shop Tools #24: Veritas Medium Router Plane

09-18-2017 04:45 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

I got lucky in an eBay auction and got a good deal on the Veritas Large Router Plane. I added extra cutters and was very interested in Veritas Medium Router Plane as it uses the same cutters as the Large Router Plane (excluding wide cutters). These planes have very high build quality and a pretty small foot print. . With one of my LN small router planes for size comparison.

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 10:48 AM 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.

Flood recovery project #3: Cleaning and restoring wood

09-18-2017 09:53 AM by FreddieMac | 2 comments »

I managed to devote a lot of time to this project this weekend. I finished up the shower project in my home as well as my RV. My house is officially recovered from the flood. That left me with lots of time this weekend to concentrate in my workshop. Over the weekend I did a lot of small things. Mainly I dissected the drawers in the cabinet. As I pulled out the drawers, I found they were the only thing holding in many of the rails on the right side. The back board warped but the moving and...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #24: Testing Finish Options, Part 2

09-17-2017 10:00 PM by TungOil | 4 comments »

After determining that I had a corrosion issue with my older spray gun, I ordered a replacement. My original order was for a CAT HVLP gun, but I ended up ordering a DeVilbiss GFG-670 Plus conversion gun instead. While waiting for the new gun to arrive, I completed a few projects in preparation for spraying. First, I prepared a large batch of stain using General Finishes water based dye stain, mixed using Darrell Peart’s formula of 7 parts orange to 4 parts medium brown. I mixe...

Works in progress #1: Coffee table #1

09-16-2017 04:43 PM by Stephen2017 | 0 comments »

I acquired some rough cut slabs down by Coos Bay OR. I started levelling/planing the first one and after seeing the grain and a little consultation looks like I have a beautiful slab of big leaf maple with all sorts of figure going on everywhere. I think this will make a great coffee table. So I’m planning on just smoothing it out, using turquoise inlay, and making the tables out of black walnut.

the space is defined, now on to the shop layout...

Hi all. New here, well new to posting. Done lots of snooping. Anyways, our family recently chose to move and downsize. Our house is a modest 850sf, but has a usable basement, but no garage. Soooo as part of our plan, im building it. Basically a 18×24 ft pad, 1 car space inside, carport space outside and room for a small, but dedicated, 18×12ft shop. Given those confines, I’ve got a blank slate to work with and as I’ve been working on designing it thought i shoul...

From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) #6: News...good? bad? indifferent?

09-16-2017 03:07 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Got a call from the Doctor yesterday who had received a “final reading” of the x-ray of my wrist by a radiologist. The conclusion – cracked the end of my ulna (smalll forearm bone) and the pisirform (one of the many bones that make up the wrist joint). So, it’s not a sprain as first diagnosed. It’s 2 breaks – okay, cracks. This affects my grip strength with that hand as well as sending shooting pains up the arm when striking anything with that hand/ho...
