My Workbench #1: I made a choice

03-03-2010 04:51 PM by Prisirie | 6 comments »

Well since, I am new to this I figured that after having bought some tools the next thing for me to do is make a workbench. We have a small cabin/storage room on the yard which is filled with all kind of junk (forgatton gold). Barbeque set, old furniture, tools, all types of garden chemicals, old oil cans, concrete blocks, empty beer bottles, etc. It’s about 5 by 3 meters, about 50 squared feet. I figure it’s more then enough for me. (for now)Still I find it’s going to be...

Old Machinery Restoration

03-03-2010 01:02 PM by 559dustdesigns | 6 comments »

I just wanted to share a site that I found that may be interesting to some here on LumberJocks. The site is by a man named Shane Whitlock. http://www.shanewhitlock.com/index.htm This guy is IMHO a machine restoration genius. He also does some very nice photography as you will see on his web site. This topic is not only interesting to me but its good to see someone take an old machine and give it new life. Some of the machines out there are being scraped to make new, cheaper, mo...

Workshop #4: Table Saw Router Table - I've been framed!

03-03-2010 09:56 AM by rweitz | 2 comments »

So I got going a bit more waiting for a decision from Project Manager (read wife) on what to do next. We did put together some of the basement and recycled, trashed, and donated a truck load of stuff, but there’s still more to go.Meanwhile I pulled some more scraps out of the bin and made a frame for the router table that will grace my new fence rails. Eventually I’ll pull the sheet metal extensions and put all table in there, but I don’t have big enough scraps so currently ...

Another great pile of wood

03-03-2010 06:20 AM by Karson | 24 comments »

I made the trek to my wood supplier that gives us free scrap wood for our Toy Making outreach at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers. These toys are given to underprivledged children at Christmas time. We usually make about 1300 or so toys each year. This is my catch from the past week. Approx 200 BD ft of Honduras Mahogany. A lot of it is 10/4 square and 30 to 35” long. I can get all of the wood that is less than 36” long. I’m also going through his cuttoff bin and taking all Sa...
