A little shop time...

04-02-2010 06:34 AM by BarryW | 4 comments »

For those who know, I care for my elderly mother. I don’t sleep well and find I’m always trying to catnap while watching her…’cause I’m always listening overnight. I sprang up at a cough last night…ran to her bedroom to assist. I’ve managed to get a little time here and there in my shop in the last 2 days.Seven or eight years ago I bought a draw knife and two spoke shavers…garage sales I think. The draw knife was still marked $5.00…a b...

Mounting a TV panel

04-02-2010 06:14 AM by zlatanv | 5 comments »

Some friends wanted a Panel to mount a flat screen TV but were limited on wall space so they wanted the panel to go over a window, but wanted the panel to sit flush to the wall. Here is how I did it using some french cleats on a frame built inside the window frame. First I cut some cleats I mounted one side to the panel about 18” off the top and bottom with glue and screws. Once that dried I clamped the other side of the cleat to them and built a frame to match the window openin...

Extremely Average #90: Creating the Dust Collection

04-02-2010 04:14 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello All, Yesterday I wrote a description of how I created the dust collection, and included it in my post in the project section. I didn’t have any additional photos at the time, and it was 1 AM and well past my bed time. So tonight I took a couple of shots and posted the description in my blog. If you were curious how the dust collection works on my router table fence, then hopefully this will be a description that is helpful. If you find it still isn...

Holtzapffel Workbench: Decision Time. Could use your input.

04-02-2010 04:03 AM by jcontract | 3 comments »

Ok. It’s time to place the Workmate aside and build a real bench. Don’t get me wrong, the Workmate served me well these few years, and it still has its place (wrapping newspaper comes to mind). Time to build a real bench. I’ve done the research, read the Schwarz, and even helped a friend build his bench. It’s my time! So I went to the Woodworking in America show in Valley Forge PA last October and as luck would have it, there was a company offering kiln dried Ash 12...

Blanket Chest #2: ARGGGG!!!! crack split in glued up panel

04-02-2010 03:39 AM by AaronK | 5 comments »

so i had completely glued up the panel that is to become the top of the blanket chest I’m building, when all of a sudden i notice a MASSIVE crack in one of the boards right along the grain. It’s in the nicest piece too, with grain shifting towards quarter-sawn texture. CRAP. I guess that’s one of the hazards with using reclaimed wood… stuff could have been abused in its previous incarnation. anyway, I basically bent it until it snapped along the grain and am now ...

The Wine Rack #1: The horse has been led to water...

04-01-2010 10:55 PM by Todd Clare | 1 comment »

I’ve been wanting to “do” woodworking all my life. Even as a little kid, I remember watching the New Yankee Workshop and The Woodwright Shop. Something about the combination of creativity and the exact tolerances and the remarkable potential to continue to learn was a big draw for me. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m ready. Got a basement with a good collection of tools. I’ve read a lot and watched a lot of shows… I’ve actual...
