Extremely Average #116: Not Listening To One's Self

04-28-2010 04:18 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello Folks, I spent a couple of hours in the old shop today. I experienced several failures, but it is ok. I will keep trying, that is why I am focusing on building things for woodworking, because I know there will be days like this. Brian

The BIG Re-Model #1: How many hoops to jump thru to get a shop.

04-28-2010 03:31 AM by crank49 | 2 comments »

Well, I heard it here first, “every new project requires a new tool” so I figured taken to its logical conclusion, a major remodel must equal a new shop. I set out originally to have the kitchen remodeled. But, the more I read and studied and planned, the more parts of the project I wanted to do myself. Then I found these wood working blogs and found I was not alone in having this DIY fever. Six months ago I was just looking for appliances and pricing granite and flooring and c...

Kregg Pocket Hole Retro Fit

04-28-2010 01:43 AM by cbMerlin | 6 comments »

First of all, I love my Kregg pocket hole jig, except for all the drill-dust. I’ve had it for a number of years and I seldom do a project without it, even though clean up’s a pain. As many companys do, Kregg came out with a new model, one that includes the ability to attach a shop vac to the jig. No worries, I’m thinking I’ll just get a retro-fit part or something. No luck and No way I’m spending another $100+ on the new model! I’ve got my Kregg mounted...

First Personal Shop #1: First Pic

04-27-2010 10:26 PM by KnifeL | 13 comments »

Howdy,So I am new here, thus to break the ice I figured I would post a picture of my shop. At 20 this is my first personal shop, most of the tools are mine, however some of the power tools and clamps are lent from my father and uncle. There’s a space about the same size behind me, though not in a condition to be pictured right now. Oh and the shelves are level, the building is not. From First Shop

I’m finally finding some time to work on updates and new features instead of spending most of it on support and maintenance issues.

Now I’d like you to become familiar with the restructured and much extended HomeRefurbers Forums: Interior Home ImprovementAre you making structural changes to the interior of your home?

Just for Fun... #13: Nothing much going on... might as well make some hinges... :)

04-27-2010 07:38 PM by littlecope | 18 comments »

In the last installment, I showed the latest box I’m working on, it’s now time to make a pair of hinges for it…But, and it seems like there’s always a but, I had a problem with the fitted panel for the lid. When I cut the tenon around the thing, to fit into the side dadoes, I was trying to “sneak up on it”, once, twice, three times and it seemed like nothing was changing. So I gave it one of those “All or Nothing” taps to the Table Saw fence and...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Hey everyone, So my last blog post was about a router table for sale that I was going to pick up. It appears that it is just the table, no fence or anything of the sort. So is it still worth picking up cheap? I figure I can get a nice straight board of some sort, and some clamps…voila! Instant fence! Thoughts? -Silas

Honoring a lost friend...

04-27-2010 11:13 AM by dbhost | 37 comments »

At 12:00 midnight., our beloved yellow lab Deacon developed severe respiratory distress. We took him to the Animal Emergency Hospital in town. He was previously diagnosed with inoperable Laryngeal Paralysis. The event today was the final crisis distress from the paralysis. With no alternatives that would give him any quality of life back, we made the most humane decision we could muster. Deacon took his last breath at 2:55 A.M… Deacon was 14 years old. I have lumber from one of hi...
