Not the usual place to buy supplies

01-31-2009 06:09 AM by piper | 3 comments »

Since I retired I am now forced to go with my wife on the weekly grocery shopping at the local Wally World. While bored and waiting for her in the food department I wondered over to the hardware section. This is some place I hardly ever go to because all I expect to find is the Chinese import stuff. At the end of the end of the isle I browsed through there clearance items and to my wife’s dismay I found a whole stack of 5 inch hook and loop sanding disc in packages of 15 on clearance. The pr...

Workshop #8: Ever changing, some recent additions

01-31-2009 05:55 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Well like most people my shop is everchanging. I have added a few items in the past few months to make it easier to work around the shop. They are projects I suppose but I figured I would just post them here in blog form instead.Since I am going to try out posting this to my new FaceBook page, this is what the shop looked liked in September of 2007… I have added a lot, but that is another story. Recently I have added a multipurpose assembly table… This table has come in qui...

The Workbench #2: The Top

01-30-2009 09:32 PM by Wayne Precht | 4 comments »

The top drives every thing else about a workbench. And I gave it a lot of thought. The new bench would occupy the I-Beam work surface area. So, in theory, it could be up to the 8’ length of that system. But, it’s a tight 8’. I frequently have to slide it up or down as the space between the old bench and my drill press setup is about 11’. Also, looking at my usage pattern, I seemed to use about 2’-4’ of space as a work surface and the rest as a place t...

The Workbench #1: Initial Thoughts

01-30-2009 09:24 PM by Wayne Precht | 2 comments »

I have what’s probably a typical shop for the hobbyist furniture maker: a largish room in the unfinished half of a basement of a middling sized house. It’s not huge, but not really tight either. Like everyone in this position, space is at a premium. So in considering my latest workbench evolution, I had to decide exactly what size made the most sense. My current workbench has some advantages, it’s 10’ long, it’s built solidly and sits under a west facing wi...

Spice Box #4: Waiting for the finish to dry

01-30-2009 06:42 PM by MedicKen | 1 comment »

I am sure that everyone here knows exactally how boring it is to watch paint dry. Well thats where I am, except its tung oil, not paint. I have the spice box completed and oiled yesterday. Hopefully I can at least one coat of wax on it today, assemble and get some pics done before I have go back to work tomorrow. I have been working on this for a little over a month, ok almost 2 months, and it seems to have consumed me. It was supposed to be a christmas gift for the LOML, but I didnt make it....

Offset Router Table Stand #1: The Initial Design

01-30-2009 11:00 AM by jamieb | 8 comments »

Last week I received the 17” Incra LS Positioner router table fence system that I ordered. Unfortunately I don’t yet have a place to mount it. If I previously had a full-size table, I could just add an extension to accommodate the positioner. However, my existing router table is a cheap benchtop unit made of aluminum, so it’s time to head back to the drawing board—literally. I originally was going to purchase the 27” x 43” offset router table combo at...
