Sewing Center #3

2013 days ago by robbi | 3 comments »

I feel like I hardly got anything done this weekend….going quite slow I am afraid. I have had some issues with my table saw so 1/2 of my time was spent trying to fix that. Sometimes I wish I had big buff muscles so I could wrestle with my tools better. Seems I spend a lot of time swearing and yelling at my tools. Anyway….on with the show here. I had to make the drawer slides which entailed cutting them from 3/4 oak and planing them down to 1/4. I have a band saw but it is ...

2013 days ago by Mike Shea | 15 comments »

Hello everyone…... its that time to wipe the thick layer of dust from my shelves, drawers and tools. i do this at least once a month. during that time i blow all the dust out of the shop with my leaf blower. i take all of my important tools apart and replace brushes, belts, bits and blades. i oil, grease and lubricate all moving parts and bearings. the tool that i pay most attention to in the shop is my 10” cabinet saw. i am constantly checking to see if the blade is square to the...

Penultimate Contractor Saw tune up method #1: 1st steps

2013 days ago by marcb | 2 comments »

Its time once again to do a big time tune up on the old Rockwell Model 10. Due to the number of threads on tuning up old saws that I’ve seen, plus the number of people who think its impossible to keep a contractor saw in alignment I figured I would share my method, which is built up of a couple of different articles and discussions I’ve read/had over the years. Unfortunately this first chuck I’ve already done and didn’t think to take pictures, but it is fairly e...

nightstand bedside table #5: Planing the top and shelf panels

2014 days ago by coloradoclimber | 5 comments »

Even though I clamped and cauled the top and shelf during the glue up there was still a slight offset between the panels, maybe around a 64th or so, maybe a little less. I machine planed the panels before the glue up so the panels were pretty flat and reasonably smooth. I like the tactile quality of a planed surface more so than a sanded surface so the offset and the desired for a planed finish combined to lead me to hand plane the finished top. Hand planing the top turned out to...

nightstand bedside table #4: Cutting the Pieces and Dry Fitting

2014 days ago by coloradoclimber | 1 comment »

After milling up the pieces and parts it was time to begin cutting to size and fitting up. The construction is all mortise and tenon and sliding panel. At this point the pieces are still marked with the position identifier and the orientation. I use kids sidewalk chalk to mark the pieces. Sidewalk chalk comes in different colors to mark light or dark wood, it’s dirt cheap, large sticks so it’s easy to find and handle, and it wipes off clean with a little elbow grease and a rag....

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

2014 days ago by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Shop wall #1: Trying to design a "wall" of sorts - need some SU help

2014 days ago by Betsy | 6 comments »

OK – I have my hand tool shop in a middle bedroom of the house. The walls are bare as to shelves, etc. I don’t plan to sell this house anytime soon, however, I don’t want to install cabinets in the bedroom so that the walls are not damaged. So what I am thinking of doing is making a false wall of sorts. I figure I can make a frame and put on some peg board that I can use to hang my tools from so they are more readily available at my bench. I’ve drawn one leg of the ...
