Garage Workshop Transformation #1: A Loooong Way To Go

04-26-2010 04:03 AM by John Steffen | 11 comments »

Today marks a good day to start documenting my garage’s change into a work space. My table saw finally arrived. It has been sitting in my dad’s machine shop for a few months. While it was there he built a rolling base for it. My dad and I (mostly my dad) spent the day wiring up the garage for the 220 needed for the saw. So here it is… To call it a mess at this point would be a gross understatement. When we moved in the fall it was a catch-all for things we couldn&...

Prep for Finishing

04-25-2010 08:48 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 2 comments »

the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...

From wood butchery to wood workery #3: Getting closer without doing as much - that measure twice cut once stuff works!

04-25-2010 03:55 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

So I’m on to the next project for my wife, a set of benches to fit around one nook of the back patio. After some discussion we settled on three benches, two approx. 5 foot and one 7 foot (Hurricanes here in Houston, when we get ‘em we turn the benches over so they present a low profile behind the brick wall). I set up the design on Sketchup, then started the build. A few things to note: First, I replaced my old cross-cut sled with a new version. It’s simpler, sits...

Mom's kitchen Cabinets #6: Base cabinets installed......

04-25-2010 02:18 PM by bluchz | 1 comment »

Finally got the base cabinets installed. This is the 2nd longest kitchen build in history!!!!!! The granite guys have been called and hopefully i can start on the upper cabinets as soon as the size is decided. There is talk of making them go all the way to the ceiling,(9’ or 10’) but i think it would make the small kitchen smaller. Here are some pics.There is still some touch-up painting to do and Toe kick to install. The floor was out of level by 2” in spots so there were a...

From Logs To Lumber #8: Got a couple of large Black Walnut Logs

04-25-2010 05:43 AM by alaskan79 | 2 comments »

The guy that my dad brought the saw mill from has a tree service. About a month ago he called me up to see if I wanted some Black Walnut logs. It didn’t take me long to say yes. The largest one is 34” across on the small end inside the bark and 8 feet long. The other large one is the next log up from the butt log. It should have some nice figure to it because it split into 3 at the top of it and the 3 small logs are from where it split. The guy that I got them from wants the 3 sma...

I have a Delta Rockwell Arm Saw with book I need to get rid of – I need more room. Also has a book. I don’t know much about it, it was given to me several years ago. I’m not looking to make a fortune or anything, I just need the room. Please contact me if interested.

Workbench #2: Some Lumber Cut and Photos

04-25-2010 05:13 AM by Gatsby1923 | 4 comments »

The Bench Pt 2. Some Lumber Cut and Photos I milled some PSL 4 square and laminated two pieces together to make legs that are 4-7/8 X 3. I am not going to cut them to final length until I know for sure the final thickness of the top but they should end up around 34-1/2 inches. I did mill up the pieces for the short stretchers out of LVL. First experience with it and it milled up just fine no issues. I followed the advice my friend who gave me the lumber had; and that was to take a cut deep...

Dresser #1: In the beginning. . .

04-25-2010 04:36 AM by AFChip | 5 comments »

So several months ago I promised to build my wife a wine buffet. It was a fairly ambitious plan since you could equate my woodworking experience with that of an infant. Fate intervened in my ambitions though when I found out my wife was pregnant. The wine buffet got the boot in favor of a much more practical and needed project, a dresser for the kiddo’s new room. So, the dresser project began. The goal of this project is simple: to build a simple, sturdy dresser that has a pleasi...
