Torque Work Centre #3: Cutting Slots

05-05-2010 05:13 PM by Kent Shepherd | 9 comments »

Here is another great use for the Torque Work Centre. I am frequently needing to slot pieces for various jigs I have built. Up until now I have been using the router sled I posted some time ago. That worked very well, and was safe to use, even on small parts. The Torque Work Centre does the same thing, but the set up and ease of use is much better and faster. Here I’m slotting pieces for wooden clamps like these I posted recently as a project.This is the set up for the flip stops to ...

Planks on the Floor, Planks on the Floor,Lookin’ Like a Fool with yourPlanks on the Floor… Sorry, just had to do that… My small collection of pine was sitting on the floor, waiting for somewhere nice to go: This wall was the decided place, it allows me to enter the open garage door on the garage side of the workshop with a load of wood and then bring it through the middle door that divides the garage from the workshop: I decided to use 2×4 uprights screwed t...

05-05-2010 03:37 PM by billb | 26 comments »

I created a chart to use when pricing jobs and one of my readers, who is obviously a whiz with Excel, created a great excel spreadsheet to help him calculate job prices. His name is Mike Stewart and he generously shared this spreadsheet with me and I have been sharing it with others. So, now it’s available to all members of LJ. Just click on the link below and download it to your computer for future use. http://woodworking-business.com/downloads/HowMuchToCharge.xls The yellow cell...

Check out the first post in the series over here at my blog. If you’d like to see the entire dresser series, click here. I’ll be trying out alcohol soluble dye and spraying some general fini...

My wife and i recently moved into our new home and I have been thrilled that i finally have a space (garage) where i can do some woodworking on my own. the problem is getting rid of all the stuff that doesnt belong in there, out. one weekend i managed to get a lot of that stuff cleared out and now i need to find out how i am going to lay out the shop.

Extremely Average #123: I have started my first drawer.

05-05-2010 04:52 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello LJ, I feel that it is time to tackle the drawer. A fairly important skill to have, and I have been practicing dovetail joints, so I am going to give it a shot. Today I cut the pieces, did some planing, and started to cut the pins. http://bit.ly/am6BAk Brian, p.s. I am just curious, most days there are between 100 – 200 people who click on my LJ post, and yesterday there were 750. If anyone who reads this, is one of the non regular readers, could you please leave a ...
