Sqeezing more shop into small space continues #4.

08-02-2009 04:36 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

The shop organization and remodeling continues, on a far less aggressive note today. With daytime highs near 100 degrees F, overnight lows just barely dipping below 80, and murderous humidity, the shop has been what we call HOT… And I have been working my tail off out there. I have muscles that are sore that I forgot I had, and I have had a nasty headache all day today. Combine that with the swarms of blood thirsty mosquitoes that Deep Woods Off seems to be an appetizer for, and s...

Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

08-02-2009 03:59 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

New Crib #4

08-02-2009 03:51 AM by MOJOE | 4 comments »

Well, I spent Thursday afternoon looking through 2 Home Depot’s worth of birch plywood. I finally found 3 pieces that suited my needs. I actually found a 1/4 sheet that had some very procounced dark brown streaks (maybe spalting…not sure) anyway, I used it for the center of my headboard panel. I also routed a rabbit/groove in the back side to accept the panels, and put in ogee around the perimeter of each panel in the front. Today I cut the panels to fit and glued them up. I ...

Just 15 More Minutes

08-02-2009 02:12 AM by Kjuly | 8 comments »

I posted this blog on my web site and thought I would share it with my fellow Lumber Jocks.Keith A good friend called last night and suggested I write a blog about an article that I wrote in 1993 for the Mid-Michigan Woodworkers Guild. When I was young I was taught how to tell time. I thought that this task was quite simple, but I find even today I have trouble telling time. Actually it’s not telling time that’s the problem, but it’s telling the time that it take...

Need plan for table saw dust collection.

08-02-2009 12:51 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I purchased the hood shown in the link below. And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...

08-01-2009 10:58 PM by degoose | 25 comments »

Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder]. I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards. Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this ...
