Workshop #12: Table Saw Workcenter - 2

01-11-2011 09:42 AM by rweitz | 1 comment »

Got some cabinets in place and it is starting to look like a work center. The rolling base is high enough off the ground but with all the weight in place the legs are a bit wobbly rolling in the long direction of the base.The second pic shows the vac in place.On the plans the near cabinet under the router gets some drawers, and the far one under the other end of the saw gets a shelf. I’ll reverse that setup on mine since I also made the depth longer for my setup, and the vac takes so m...

Workshop #11: New Workbench/ Table Saw workcenter

01-11-2011 09:37 AM by rweitz | 0 comments »

Well with the router table and the fence installed on my Craftsman it gets kind of tippy on that end. I needed to add some legs, but that would take away the mobility from my wheeled table saw tool stand. Also I wanted to have my shopvac tucked under and roll with the saw so I’m starting on a Table Saw Workcenter I found in Woodsmith “Table Saw Secrets” specialty mag I had picked up, with some mods on almost every aspect! First off I used an old bed frame we had for th...

Pyramid illusion

01-11-2011 08:19 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

I have to reduce my time in dealing with geometrical design last holiday seasons due to some domestic appointments and household projects. However, my mind is pre-occupied on to continue different design concepts using a rhumboid. I think it is time to recover from the LONG GAPS and so here I am back again to what I started. This time, I do design and do it in flesh as soon as I have the chance. Pyramid came up when I accidentally cut a rhumboid the other way around. Instead of a 60 deg...

Workshop Development #12: Not much shop time, but more cleaning is done!

01-11-2011 07:52 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

Just as a little side note, the piles of stuff on the table saw, as well as the outfeed workbench are now things of the past. I have another tote that is now nothing but empty space, and another giant trash bag full to the brim. The Strong Tie workbench is down to just misc small stuff. As the old saying goes. Lord Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise, the cleanup project should be done by this weekend! This is a HUGE relief for me as this has been nagging at me for a very long time now. Th...

Home Finishing... not your typical basement remodel #1: Medieval Shop Entry and Home Bar

01-11-2011 06:58 AM by Brian Strothcamp | 3 comments »

My first blog… so I reserve the right to screw it up :) This is the start of a huge project, basically finishing the lower level of our atrium home. I have a lot under way but will catch you up over the next few days so subscribe now! First lets take a look at the entrance to my woodshop. These doors are 2×4 framed with reclaimed barn siding. I made the cultured stone myself and plan on ordering a nice set of authentic iron forged hardware for them. Will be complete with rive...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #16: Shaping the Bench Legs

01-11-2011 06:24 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

With the (near) completion of the Christmas Boxes I’ve had some time to work on the Anniversary Table. Over the past two days I’ve worked on shaping the blanks I prepared back in October. The two benches will have three solid legs. Each leg is made of ~40mm Tas. Mrytle. The back is formed by a straight taper and a gentle curve. The front has a gentle curve to match the table leg (seen in the background.) The detail is an ellipse found in traditional design. The boards b...

In the Shop #1: Grandpa's RAS gets a new top

01-11-2011 05:59 AM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

Instead of adding a new project for the things I do around the shop, I thought I would start a blog about the upgrades as I make them. Over the past two years I have done a lot to convert the unfinished part of my basement into a woodworking shop. If you want to see some before shots you can visit the bt3central forums (probably need to register to see pics, sorry i’ll post them here soon) The beginningUpgrade 1 You can see what it looks like now in My Workshop in my profileR...

Extremely Average #317: I am reading a really good book...

01-11-2011 05:48 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello All, Spike Carlsen, ‘A Splintered Hisotry of Wood’, is a delight. I am only two chapters into the book, but I became so excited about the stories, I had to write the review. I have decided to write the review in parts, because, well, I can. If you have a mild interest in wood or woodworking, this book will be one of the best you read all year. Or I should say, the first two chapters will be. If you love woodworking, this will send you into a state of giddiness. Tha...

Same sticks for both lamps

01-11-2011 05:46 AM by junipercanyon | 0 comments »

These two lamps are as close to identical as twisted juniper lamps can be. They are cut from the same limb for both the post and the bases. They are about 18” tall and are looking really great. I cant wait to see these two complete. uni

Facets, the Next Logical Step #7: Gluing Up the Dodecahedron

01-11-2011 04:27 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

The original segment here asked “How hard can it be to make a dodecahedron? Well the answer seems to be pretty easy….. but there are lots of ways to make it harder. When I first assembled the MDF pieces off the saw I thought that the fitting part was going to be the easy bit and that the dying and marquetry would be the sticky parts. That remained my belief until the final assembly time arrived and I realized that with the allowable tolerances it was going to be an interesting fit...
