Shop time with jockmike2

03-31-2010 06:31 PM by David Craig | 11 comments »

I had a chance, yesterday, to spend another delightful afternoon/evening with Mike (aka jockmike2). Each time I visit, it seems my confidence level goes up a notch and I spend more time doing some actual turning. So there was much progress with the bowl I was working on and it would seem that it is not destined to spend the rest of its days as a permanent addition to Mike’s chuck. The piece we worked on is a chunk of maple that Mike was kind enough to donate to the teaching process. ...

Not quite in the workshop... #8: More quality time with fiberglass insulation...

03-31-2010 06:13 PM by dbhost | 1 comment »

Now I know you are wondering how all of this time I am spending in the attic relates to woodworking. There is a tie in here, trust me… Even though the daytime highs have been in the mid to upper 70s lately, the overnight lows are, well downright cold into the mid 40s. Once the sun starts going down the attic isn’t a horrible place to work, aside from all the fiberglass dust that is… I took up a span of OSB to spread between the rafters to give me a more acceptable plat...

006: pallet wood cutting board #4: rounding over, sanding, and finishing

03-31-2010 09:26 AM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I decided it would probably be boring to show each step from the previous ‘milling everything flat and square’ post, to the final board, so here’s the final board, all finished: It is 6-3/4”x8-5/8” and a little over 1.75” thick. Or, you know, about the size of the US hardcover edition of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” though the book is a little less than an inch taller in the longest dimension. Note the butcher’s block c...

The Nehls End Workshop #1: Its here

03-31-2010 06:23 AM by Gregn | 7 comments »

My new shop arrived today, looking forward to setting it up. I bought a 12’x 30’ gable shed with 8’ walls. It was an interesting process to watch as they set it down in my yard today. Now I will have to save to start putting in the electrical. Plan to put 110 every 4’ about 4’ up on the walls and 220 every 8’. Plan to put 8 double bulb florescent fixtures in the ceiling for lighting. Along with some task lighting and outlets for hanging ceiling appliances ...

My First Jig ever! Also-Giant Tenons are a PITA

03-31-2010 05:05 AM by DragonLady | 5 comments »

Lots of firsts for me tonight: 1) made my first ever jig2) made my first ever dado3) Used my brand new router in the plunge base4) did my first serious routing (ok, kind of a compilation of 1-3 above) Wooo! The jig I made is for routing tenons. The pieces I’m working on (the legs for my workbench in progress) are too big for the router table, too big for my tiny table saw, and damn tiring to do by hand. I got the plans from here Ta da! Not much to look at, really, but i...

Chicken Coop #1: More to come

03-31-2010 04:42 AM by ardbeg | 4 comments »

This is far from fine woodworking, but I feel the need to get something up here and start talking about what I have been working on in my new shop with my new tools. While I bought my new stuff to make boxes and furniture, it turns out that you can also make chicken coops with a Jet Proshop. Pic at bottom. My wife and I decided having a flock of 6 chickens for egg laying would be a fun way to get closer to the food chain and make us more aware of how our food gets to our table. Of co...
