A journey into the workshop. #40: Organize, organize, organize...

01-25-2010 05:54 PM by dbhost | 9 comments »

A couple of months ago, I added a compressor, and pnuematic nailers to my tool arsenal, which is all well and good. I created a nice cubby hole as it were for the compressor directly underneath the dust collector which sits on a riser stand of sorts… I did not, however, make accomodations for the nailers, or for that matter the majority of the junk that was on my original workbench… So some cleaning and organizing was in order… Now for those that don’t recall, I ...

Dado Set

I need someone’s expertise, I have a 10” Delta Table Saw, not a full size table saw, I have a dado set that makes the saw just shake and makes it difficult to cut accurate dados, is there a particular dado set made for the smaller table saws?

Sketch This! #3: Booth

01-25-2010 05:34 PM by John Steffen | 7 comments »

I’ve always really liked the idea of having a booth or booths in my home that would be separate from the dining room and used more regularly as a breakfast nook, or a place to study or just to have more room when we have family over for the holidays. Anyway, we’re remodeling our whole main floor and I would like to put two non-stationary booths in the newly opened-up kitchen. Once again, this should be a very sturdy piece. I had wider boards on the top of the tabl...

have a new business idea...

How about a business that builds furniture specifically for marine applications? I am considering building a new business that makes furnishings specifically for marine and other similar settings. Does anyone know of businesses that already make furniture specifically for Marine and or boats?

Sketch This! #2: Re: Entryway Bench

01-25-2010 05:04 PM by John Steffen | 4 comments »

Here is my second attempt at designing an entryway bench. The top is similar to the first, but I’ve changed to to include less angle cuts. I’m still very fresh to woodworking and while I don’t doubt my ability to properly measure and cut angles, I would rather focus on my joinery and finishing techniques than worry about angles. So, I’ve straightened out the legs, added stretchers across the bottom of the legs, and added a shelf of sorts for shoes and whatever e...

Why Turn #1: In the beginning

01-25-2010 03:46 PM by MrPukaShell | 8 comments »

One of my friends came in one day and threw me a Craft Supply catalog to me. We were talking as I thumbed through the catalog. He asked me if I had ever made pens before and I replied “How do you make pens”. It was all over with from there. I started dreaming after reading a few articles and a couple of internet searches. Started buying pen blanks before I even had a lathe. Made a pen press as I was saving for my “Machine”. Began my daily search on Craigslist fo...

Venting a spray room--Your thoughts please.

01-25-2010 03:13 PM by eastside | 6 comments »

I’m building a spray room today in my shop and need to exhaust the fumes but the explosion poof fans are very expensive. The cheapest one I could find is about $600 dollars. So this is what I planed and I’m looking for your impute, ideas and thoughts. My shop is in my basement so it is mostly underground. The size is 30 feet X 60 feet. I’m going to build a wall across the shop 30 foot and 15 feet off the wall leaving a room 15×30. Then cutting that in half leaving 2 rooms 15×1...

Advice on sprayers

01-25-2010 02:08 PM by David Murray | 7 comments »

I am getting ready to start a new project that when completed calls for spray on shellac.I have no experience with spraying systems and not sure what to get or look for. I’ve got a large (60 gal) compressor should I be looking at a regular sprayer that you might see in a hardware store, or should I look at an HVLP system that a woodworker supplier would sell. If anyone uses either of these methods I would like some input.

01-25-2010 10:12 AM by papaj | 7 comments »

Been awhile since I was able to post. Dentist messed up my jaw and have been in constant pain since just before Christmas. After seeing specialist they decided it wasn’t my teeth but a torn ligament in my jaw. At least I can concentrate now that the pain is controlled. Enuf of my lamentations…let’s see if I can remember how to post the pics. ;-) I do not have any photos of the sides being put on as I was home alone. It is quite a chore, as you have to temp. hang it, ...

Adirondack Chair & Table #6: The Back Goes On

01-25-2010 06:14 AM by jcontract | 1 comment »

What a great Sunday I had. And since the J-E-T-S were on I didn’t miss watching any football. Just kidding, gotta give them credit, they still had a nice year. Anyhow, back to my nice day. My compatriot John T, came over today to help me with some odds and ends. First, the cover of my Ridgid drill press was broken off where it screws into the top. So we lathered it up with some epoxy, and that seems to have fixed it. Also, John gave me a tutorial in cleaning up old hand saws. Here...
