First Blog - Cherry Table

04-28-2010 04:33 PM by GrayPonyWorkshop | 5 comments »

How about this. We have a cherry top table that is about 37”W x 77”L. One solid piece.It was cut into three years ago to make a drop leaf table. Now I’m going to make it into a solid top again.Now I have some old hinges to use on other projects. I was able to get thick, farm table legs, and will create a new apron out of pallet wood i’ve found.Will post a pic once the table is complete.

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #9: I have just been busy

04-28-2010 03:42 PM by cmckerliesr | 2 comments »

Well I often feel guilty about not getting back to write more about working in the can. But the truth is I have a busy life and sometimes, I just let it slip by because there is just not enough time in the day. I spent the last two weeks battling a virus on the home computer, which was not detected by my McAfee software even though I pay them a yearly subscription fee to protect 3 computers on my network. I won’t go into details, but after 6 scans by Malwarebytes, and several Microso...

Thanks guys!

To all of the guys who posted advice that I asked for – thank you! For now, I think it will be worth the $25 to tide me over for now. I’m going to pick it up probably in the next couple of days. Now I need to find something fun to make with it! :) -Silas

Shaker Blanket Box #1: The Design Brief

04-28-2010 12:10 PM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

I wanted to make my two young nieces (under 5) a present for Christmas. Their mother suggested a blanket/toy box with the following specifications. Size 800mm wide, 400 deep, and 500 high. No sharp corners. A slow close mechanism for fingers. And it should be able to be used as a seat. More pictures.

David Marks Piano Bench

04-28-2010 06:31 AM by AKWoody | 5 comments »

So this is my first real project. I have spent months practicing mortising and cutting tenons and ruining cheap wood before I attempted anything expensive. So far it is turning out better then expected. My future brother in law plays the piano from a kitchen chair making this an ideal wedding gift. I used cherry with ebony accents, I am hoping the finish turns out well.

Hello Folks, I spent a couple of hours in the old shop today. I experienced several failures, but it is ok. I will keep trying, that is why I am focusing on building things for woodworking, because I know there will be days like this. Brian

The BIG Re-Model #1: How many hoops to jump thru to get a shop.

04-28-2010 03:31 AM by crank49 | 2 comments »

Well, I heard it here first, “every new project requires a new tool” so I figured taken to its logical conclusion, a major remodel must equal a new shop. I set out originally to have the kitchen remodeled. But, the more I read and studied and planned, the more parts of the project I wanted to do myself. Then I found these wood working blogs and found I was not alone in having this DIY fever. Six months ago I was just looking for appliances and pricing granite and flooring and c...

Kregg Pocket Hole Retro Fit

04-28-2010 01:43 AM by cbMerlin | 6 comments »

First of all, I love my Kregg pocket hole jig, except for all the drill-dust. I’ve had it for a number of years and I seldom do a project without it, even though clean up’s a pain. As many companys do, Kregg came out with a new model, one that includes the ability to attach a shop vac to the jig. No worries, I’m thinking I’ll just get a retro-fit part or something. No luck and No way I’m spending another $100+ on the new model! I’ve got my Kregg mounted...

First Personal Shop #1: First Pic

04-27-2010 10:26 PM by KnifeL | 13 comments »

Howdy,So I am new here, thus to break the ice I figured I would post a picture of my shop. At 20 this is my first personal shop, most of the tools are mine, however some of the power tools and clamps are lent from my father and uncle. There’s a space about the same size behind me, though not in a condition to be pictured right now. Oh and the shelves are level, the building is not. From First Shop
