Safety First #1: Show off your Safety Gear

02-21-2009 03:42 AM by KnotWright | 2 comments »

We all love to show off our projects, and our workshops, and we even show off our mishaps. How about we take time to show off our Shop Safety Gear? Snap pics of your fire extinguishers, your first aid kits, your Safety glass storage, or your hearing protection, respirators? Let’s get creative and build a Safety Center. Maybe we could make it a contest. This way EVERYONE wins by bringing more attention to our Safety Gear. I think I’ll start my Safety Center first th...

The Slowest Farm Shop #3: Mildly Frighteningly Sharp?

02-21-2009 01:33 AM by Will Mego | 7 comments »

So today I managed to pick upWhat’s this? It’s plate glass!I got it home, and a little later, after picking up some 3M-77 spray adhesive and some more sandpaper,I then got to work lapping my beat up blue marples chisel. As it turns out, the chisel has gotten WAY out of wack. Probably from my misguided attempts at lapping it in the past, but oh well, that’s why I had gotten them cheap, so I could learn without destroying something special.The pictures of the lapping and honin...

Game Cabinet #1: Design

02-21-2009 12:04 AM by JohnVV | 2 comments »

Here is a quick picture of the design for the cabinet I am currently working on. It is basically made out of 3/4 ply, with dado joinery. Found this design in several different books, but they just used butt joints. One thing I still haven’t decided is how much screwing I should do (on the shelves guys!), and how to cover them up. I am also thinking about dressing up the front just a bit.

I NEED a replacement fence......Craftsman table saw

02-20-2009 06:27 PM by Al | 8 comments »

Although my saw is fine, my fence always left a lot to be desired and now it’s just awful. While seraching for a replacement I found that most fences are worth almost as much as the saw or more. As a hobbyist, I’m hoping to resolve my fence issue within reason (under $200 if possible). You have always come up with a solution so….... I will go to the well once again. Thanks, Al

Whats your next project?

02-20-2009 06:23 PM by spaids | 15 comments »

For many of us it is slowly getting back to shop weather. We have turned off and packed up and only been able to exchange coy glances with our table saws. (My Ridgid TS3650 is a naughty little vixen) The time is getting close and every time I think about getting back in the shop I find myself running in circles in my head over what I want to start with. For those of you who, like me, have had to close up shop for the winter, whats the first thing on your plate when the thaw gets here? ...
