The shop wall (of Doooomm!) #1: So yeah...a wall

10-23-2009 08:49 AM by Cranc | 10 comments »

Not much here except I need a wall to complete the shop area. I’m not going to go ape making this wall perfect as it is essentially just a dust divider so the garage contents don’t get all dirty… and people can’t hear me swear at my lack of skills. Behold the Area: As you can see, a few things are happening here but I am focusing on the wall at this point.

About me, and about my woodworking journey.

10-23-2009 07:10 AM by Gatsby1923 | 14 comments »

Well this is my first blogging experience here at lumber jocks. I have lurked in your forums for a number of weeks, and have decided to take the plunge. As I wrote it, this blog became more of a tribute to my father than about me, but many of us can trace our woodworking roots back to our fathers. Well where do I start? I am coming back to woodworking as a serious hobby after a short hiatus. I had a “Man Vs. Saw” experience a few years ago. I did keep all my fingers but was inj...

Cherry Coffee Table #1: The Cranky Sailor Workshop - Ep 1

10-23-2009 04:32 AM by DynaBlue | 9 comments »

Okay, I don’t normally get into the whole ‘blogging’ thing but with a sentence of encouragement from a fellow LJ I thought I’d take the plunge and show off the length, breadth and depth of my woodworking disabilities on my first real job for another person who actually has money to pay me. A few things first off.. 1. Yes, it’s messy. My shop..I know. We just moved into our house a few months ago and things aren’t fully stashed away yet. I straight...

Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight Bandsaw. #3: The tension release, tension spring, and cool blocks are on!

10-23-2009 03:15 AM by dbhost | 11 comments »

Okay boys and girls, the tension release, cool blocks, and Cobra Coil are done. All the pieces and parts required for the upgrade. The set of cool blocks in the OEM blade guide assemblies replaces the aftermarket Accura blade guide assemblies. The Accuras were nice, but were a pain to reset every time I swapped blades. The completed tension release assembly in the released position. The completed tension release assembly in the tensioned position. The tension release assembly w...

Setting Up Shop #3: A little more organization

10-22-2009 07:09 PM by HD_woodchuck | 2 comments »

Well, I know it has been a long time, and it’s truly taken me this long to achieve any progress. I’m not just late updating the blog! I’ve posted a few new pics on my workshop section, instead of trying to post here in the blog. This is still difficult as I don’t really want to again need another website to store my pics on. So I’ll make due this way. So I’ve managed to set up a small work area in the back corner. I simply used one of my steel she...

October 2009 Shop Tour

10-22-2009 06:11 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 18 comments »

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my new shop. As I explain in the video, the sale of our old house fell through and we are now dealing with two mortgages. So I have what I am hoping is a temporary shop setup in my 3-car garage. So here’s the tour! Enjoy.

The Small Shop Myth

10-22-2009 05:56 PM by Bob Kollman | 22 comments »

Many of the LJ contributers are small shops like mine. It occured to me that not even the smallest shop comes with a small price tag. Four years ago when I started my “small shop” it started with a router and circular saw. I made a custom table so the circular saw could make fast repetive cuts. It was only a matter of weeks before I desided I needed a table saw. The table saw was actually a Jet bench top table saw that sat on 4 legs. It was only a matter of weeks before I de...
