Unplaned in the shop!

12-02-2009 02:28 AM by bigike | 31 comments »

I was just wondering how many people did projects in their shop with no plans the only thought is what your making? like a box, but you dont know the size, the wood you just start cutting,clamping and glueing when your done its a work of art. If u have any stories like this please share them with us here on LJ? Pics are even better? I know all if not most of my projects are done with out even thinking, i just wing everything all i know is that i want to make a picture frame, a box or somethin...

Progress is made on my router table

12-02-2009 12:47 AM by ryno101 | 7 comments »

I haven’t posted anything about this yet, I expect to have a finished project to post shortly… I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made on this. This is my first cabinet, my first doors, my first drawers, etc. Cabinet is 3/4” MDF, and has been done for months now. I finished the doors recently, but as woodworking for me is all about budgeting, haven’t pulled the trigger on the Forstner bit I needed to mount the hinges. Hit Rockler the other da...

Dear Jocks, For five years I have been dreaming and working towards the completion of a rather complex woodworking project. It has been a time of intense concentration and inspiration during which I have depended upon my heart to guide my brain and my hands. (continue reading by clicking here

Not Back Yet

12-01-2009 09:25 PM by Hibernicvs | 1 comment »

I feel like the Great Pink Woodworking Slug. I’ve been so busy at work trying to help make our company viable and writing best-selling (almost 100 copies) books that the only WW I’ve managed is to put together half a dozen book racks … which sit unfinished (in the stain/varnish sense) because I needed them to hold research materials. The writing desk and matching side table are sitting unfinished (in the incompleted sense) in the middle of my living room. About the only t...

Miter Saw Bench #1: Miter Saw Bench in progress

12-01-2009 07:50 PM by John's Woodshop | 18 comments »

Hey All, I use to have my woodshop in the basement of our home but that didn’t work out too well after I finshed the Family room. I have since taken over the 22’x22’ Garage and that is home for the shop. I have been working on getting it organized. I am currently working on my Miter Saw / Storage Bench based loosely on the one that Norm Built on the NYW. I am using Birch Ply from Home Depot ($23.00 a sheet) for the case and the drawer fronts. And 1/2” birch ply...

Dust Collection #3: Fine!....... particles that is

12-01-2009 04:33 PM by PurpLev | 32 comments »

After many months in the planning, designing, and reding on other peoples builds of air cleaners, the day before Thanksgiving I came upon an ad on craigslist of a JDS Air-Tech 2000 Model 750. I figured that if I was to build one – it would end up costing about as much as the JDS model, but will not have the same filtration quality, it’ll be heavier (wood construction as opposed to metal frame), and it’ll take me time to build it. time that could be used to build woodworking ...
