We have already began milling our lumber and building our jigs required to construct this project. I will post what I have so far. Hopefully I am b...

Workbench #1: Working on a Workbench

11-22-2009 06:41 AM by Safetyboy | 6 comments »

I’ve been wanting a real wood-working bench for a while, instead of the shaky typical “garage bench” I’ve been using. Needed something I could clamp a panel in for planing across & diagonal, a vice with a larger capacity, and a better way to clamp parts while cutting dovetails. But I knew this was not going to be my “final” workbench – I know that I’ll eventually want something bigger once my shop moves out of the garage into a dedicated...

Making a shelf. Cut the width. Cut to length. Easy right? Done.

11-22-2009 06:25 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well here’s some pictures of the shelf completed and installed with the Drum Sander on the new stand, and the reason for all this. I was going to paint the shelf black but then I thought that would make it dark in the storage area. So then I thought white, but then I remember I had some Dutch Boy Metallic Silver so I used that. Matched rather nicely. The shelf painted and installed for the last time. Bottom view (stand upside down) showing how I supported the shelf with one screw ...

tragedies #5: My planer's broken bearing

11-22-2009 05:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

I got some shots of the gruesome outcome inside the machine. The replacement bearing has been ordered through Sears Parts Direct and should be here in a week or two. Meanwhile, the carnage… Here are some closeups of the broken bearing from the side where it opened up: Note the broken cage and missing balls. No idea where they went: The shaft was pitted beneath the bearing. At first I thought it was damage, and it may be, but I’m leaning a bit toward it being a...

Bookrack Project Part 1

11-22-2009 05:12 AM by davidroberts | 1 comment »

I’ve been working on this bookrack project for the past two months and we finished today. It is for my son’s Eagle Scout project. The idea came from a charity resale shop our boy scout troop supports. My son wanted to build something for them so we ask what they needed. They said a paperback bookrack. I must admit, this would not have been my first choice, but hey, we gave it a shot. The next few pictures will get you through about half the project, then I’ll post the ...

Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight Bandsaw. #4: Dust port mods, mostly complete...

11-22-2009 05:08 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I know, I have been kind of quiet lately. Not that I haven’t had projects, but they haven’t been woodworking related for the last several weeks…. (Do you guys want to hear about me setting up a tuner with custom tune and cold air intake on my pickup?) There is one bit of woodworking that has gotten at least reasonably complete and tested. The band saw dust collection upgrade… You see the Harbor Freight band saws ship with, well nearly the same port that the Ridgi...

A wonderful thing to do with your wood lathe other than wood?!?!

Found this very funny and tasty video on U-tube. Shows a guy making string potatoes with his lathe! Then he cooks them and eats them….. I have to go, I am getting hungry… Link
