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...

Building a new workbench #2: Four Square

01-30-2009 05:15 AM by Loogie | 5 comments »

I spent about 4 hours in the shop this afternoon machining all the parts four-square. I only ended up with one trapezoid! I don’t know what happened with that one. I must not been paying attention at the jointer. I remade that piece and was on my way – luckily it was the smallest component too. So, here’s all the stock. Now it’s time to start doing some real machining.

Experiences #1: It's as plain as the nose on your face!

01-29-2009 11:22 PM by TampaTom | 5 comments »

I love watching football. During the NFL season, I’ll wrap up work in the shop early on a Sunday afternoon, call the kids in from the backyard, pop some popcorn, heat up some hot wings and the three of us will sit and watch a solid ten hours of games. The live drama. The hard hits. The raw emotion and energy. We cheer our fool heads off and eat all the foods we know we can’t have during the week. In football, as in all professional sports, you start to notice that there is a sort of unwrit...

Starting the blogging journey

01-29-2009 10:51 PM by Wayne Precht | 2 comments »

I have had several blogs before and they all get neglected over time. Will this one be different? Probably not. But we will see. I seemed to have sustained my commitment to regular shop time through most of a year and the output of my shop shows that I can get a fair bit done with regular hours. The output also makes my wife feel better about the time, space and money this hobby commands from our budget now that several of the things she has asked for have been completed. Guys, make som...

Building a new workbench #1: The top is glued up and the components are rough cut

01-29-2009 10:28 PM by Loogie | 9 comments »

I’m in the process of building a new workbench based on Bob Lang's bench as detailed in the October 2008 issue of Popular Woodworking. I’ve read Christopher Schwarz book “Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use” as well as several others. It always seemed like I wanted a combination of the features I found in most other benches. Bob Langs design was the first I’d seen that incorporated everything I wanted in a bench, so here goes! I bou...

Table saw and GFI outlet

01-29-2009 08:20 PM by Al | 14 comments »

I joined L J yesterday and already had a great experience with an issue. Need to further tug on you all for another related problem with my table saw. To review, yesterday I blogged regarding my motor on my craftsman table saw and how it struggled to start. After reading the responses I took the path of least resistance and removed the motor and cleaned it (way too much sawdust in it). I remounted it, plug it into an outlet (20amp) which is tied into a GFI outlet and it worked like NEW. ...
