A Woodworking Drill Press Table

07-13-2010 02:06 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The drill press is one of the great woodworking tools for a woodworker to have in the woodworking shop. However, the small metal table that often comes with this tool is rather limiting for woodworking. So, the answer to this limitation is to either buy a drill press table or build a shop-made drill press table. If you choose to purchase the accessory you could have it that very day if you have a woodworking store like Woodcraft or Rockler close by. Then again you could find a drill press tab...

cool wood joinery!!

07-13-2010 12:14 AM by dakremer | 10 comments »

Hey everyone. I was on one of the design sites that I frequently visit and saw this cool article. Its all about modern ways to join wood (furniture applications). Anyways I have the link below. It is a safe link. I am on lumberjocks all the time, and am not a spammer, etc. So click it if you want…..or dont – but this is pretty cool. The site as a whole is also very cool, especially if you are into the designing and building of modern/unique furniture. (also if you do click...

Tablesaw power conundrum!

07-12-2010 06:54 PM by Brokewood | 11 comments »

Hi everyone,I’ve recently got a new tablesaw, it’s my first one.It’s a small, portable 900W tablesaw, kind of small but it fits my shop well: The thing is, I want to cut some 4cm thick (~1.57 inches) Korina wood: I’ve only used this saw a little bit and it’s already lost 2 teeth on some pine (!!) so I’m not sure how it will do against thick hardwood. I’ve read that the blades that come with the saw are usually very low grade, will changing the b...

Do you Twitter?

07-12-2010 05:49 PM by Brian Havens | 33 comments »

Being a high-tech guy by day, I find that I spend most of my time developing technology and not taking advantage of it. Doing woodworking, and even a little teaching woodworking (via videos), on the side, I am always looking to keep up with the latest trend. That being said, Todd C got me started on this whole Twitter thing. I have to admit, even as a high tech guy, I am not sure I really get the whole concept. And now that I have been at it for a few days, I am only lukewarm about the ...

Not quite in the workshop... #21: So what actually got done?

07-12-2010 05:39 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

On Friday, I posted a list of projects I was planning on attacking this weekend… It was overly ambitious, and completely unattainable being married and having a wife with other ideas of how my time should be spent… So what actually got done? #1. Run by Lowes and grab 4 more sheets of R-Max R5 foil backed 3/4” foam board (to finish garage door insulation project). Some 2×12’s for a scaffolding deck, and a single piece of Hardi Soffit, no holes, Cedar Mill texture. Done, more ...

Another Cutting Board Design

07-12-2010 05:00 PM by SPalm | 26 comments »

I am in the process of building another board and thought I would share my thinking process along with some build pictures. When I came up with the design for the Steps board, I was thinking about how one draws a 3D box on a piece of paper. You draw a large square, and then add small mitered edges to one corner to give the appearance of seeing it slightly from the side. Making these miters out of two different woods adds to the shadows, which adds to the effect. I did this for the Steps b...

Joinery #1: I've got a haunch about these tenons.....

07-12-2010 03:38 PM by Rob Bois | 12 comments »

This is a recent blog post I did covering the haunched tenons for the cabinet doors for a six-leg sideboard I am building. This is actually episode 9 of probably about a dozen, but this one stands well on its own since it covers a common joint for basic but strong cabinet doors. I have traditionally used cope and stick joinery for most of my cabinet doors, but this particular design does not call for any molding detail on the insides of the rails and stiles, so I figured I might as well use...

Connect 4 game

07-12-2010 03:19 PM by Stevinmarin | 11 comments »

Remember Connect 4? It’s a fun little game in which players try to, well, connect four colored disks in a row. This is an easy build that you can do complete in an afternoon. Dealing with 42 holes and 42 disks gets a little monotonous though. But just remember: 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. If you would like to try one out, here's my template to get it all set up.

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill ( on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...
