Snake Box

07-26-2015 07:58 AM by Skip Mathews | 7 comments »

Snake Box07-25-2015 This has been a fun project for a number of reasons. Number one being that I used salvaged material to make my Snake Box. Number two… I used all hand tools. Number three… I made the box hardware by hand. Number four… everyone needs at least one Snake Box! The wood I used is from a shipping pallet. Looks and smells like oak. I used the best pieces I had but didn’t worry too much about how rough, knotty, warped or twisted they were. I did tr...

Nicholson style workbench #5: Ready set go!

07-26-2015 06:31 AM by cfrance | 1 comment »

Since I didn’t have plans for the day I spent it in the garage giving my workbench build a hefty push along. It started this morning removing clamps and scraping glue off an apron followed by milling and gluing the legs. I spent the rest of the day re-sizing the top slabs and aprons. Everything is taking much longer than I hoped but about as long as I planed. I seem to be on track for about a 40 or so hour build which I think is about average, maybe? With only two boards left to lamin...

End Table project #3: Frame and panel work

07-26-2015 05:36 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

Shop Update #6: New Rikon 70-100 Mini Lathe

07-26-2015 03:06 AM by Chris McDowell | 4 comments »

I recently did a little belated spring cleaning in the shop. My wife helped me pull out everything and sweep and rearrange. The main reason we did all this is because I recently bought a new lathe and needed to put it somewhere. My father-in-law had an old bench in his basement which I took and cut down to size so that the lathe would be at the proper height. The lathe is a Rikon 70-100 Mini Lathe. I basically do a product tour in the video, so check it out if you want to know more ab...

Why buy it when you can make it! #37: Restock - Baby's first trip to the hardwood dealer

07-25-2015 11:18 PM by paxorion | 9 comments »

I had to restock on some maple today, so I told my wife that I was off to the hardwood dealer in the morning and that the kids were coming with me. I was fine with my daughter coming with me as it wasn’t her first trip with me. However this was a first for my son. Upon arrival, my daughter knew what to do…head straight to the racks. My son was a bit confused. Eventually, he got the hang of it and started calling out to daddy. I was looking for maple, but not 4/4 While I ...

Band Saw Horse

07-25-2015 06:56 AM by TDSpade | 1 comment »

About a year and a half ago I posted my band saw horse. I had meant to get back to those interested in the pattern, much sooner than this. It is amazing how time gets away from you. I am new at making videos and it shows. So I can only hope that those that watch it, will find it didn’t waste to much of their time. I consider it a how to video. So I didn’t over speed it up. Just 2x speed during the cutting. So you can still clearly see how and in what order that I cut out the horse. I did t...
