Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

Complete Woodshop on Craigslist in Kentucky

02-02-2009 03:25 AM by Scott Bryan | 6 comments »

Here is a posting that appeared on Craigslist. This sounds like a complete shop with lumber for $3200. This looks like a nice deal to me for anyone interested in purchasing some Grizzley tools.

Kitchen island

02-01-2009 11:24 PM by SteveMO | 13 comments »

Recently I’ve been updating my kitchen. Resurfaced the cabinets, built a new top, stone on the wall, new wood floors etc. Since the kids have moved on, I’ve decided to build an island with stools. The top will probably have stone recessed in the center to match the wall treatment. This will also allow us to set hot pans etc. on it. Right now I’m waiting on my new table saw to arrive, so I’ll begin the project as soon as it gets here. I’ll also be running crown m...

Garage Re-Do #5: DOH! Adding more clutter?

02-01-2009 10:29 PM by MyOldGarage | 7 comments »

Yea . . . something new followed me home the other day: And it had this big box of stuff with it . . . And inside the box . . . It was like Christmas time . . . digging into the presents: And as an added bonus . . . the jointer: I’d say I did pretty good. My dad looked at some of the stuff and I have several hundred dollars worth of stuff just in blades/arbors. Some of the things were brand new (like a tendon jig) and many were unopened. The box o...

Not The Wood, But The Woodworker

02-01-2009 10:21 PM by woodyoda | 16 comments »

I’m sure allot of you male woodworkers know this problem….cracked hands. I don’t know if anyone else has a blog on this, but if anyone has some good ideas on help for this, I’m listening…’s the problem, after years of working with toxic chemicals, like mek, silicone and denatured alcohol….common to the glass trade, my hands crack every years, especially in the winter. If I have to wear latex gloves, it just gets worse….but i can’t ...

Japanese Garden Bench #3: Dry Fit the Bench: Mortise Results

02-01-2009 09:23 PM by newTim | 6 comments »

I downloaded the plans for this project from Fine Woodworking and purchased the full-size templates, although I see now that wasn’t necessary. All in all, I think this is a pretty cool and fun project. With the right tools – and isn’t that always the case – it is pretty easy. I’d say maybe intermediate. I was looking for a deck or garden bench design and this really popped off the page. Since I’m pretty tall and have pretty far to fall I don’t li...

Japanese Garden Bench #2: Pal-ing Around

02-01-2009 09:10 PM by newTim | 0 comments »

I love a plan when it comes together! So when is woodworking fun? When you can steadily progress through the various steps with ease and accuracy. Yesterday I had a lot of fun cutting mortises with the Mortise Pal. If you’ve seen my review you know I’m a fan and my experience yesterday really confirmed my view. I watched Charles Neil’s demonstration of Jessem’s Zip Slot Mortise Mill and although I haven’t used that tool, based on the video I’ve...

Observations #10: Odds and Ends

02-01-2009 06:53 PM by Russel | 8 comments »

The last few days in the shop have provided opportunity for some self-observation. My power tools have been ignored while I do some assembly and finishing. And since a piece of sandpaper in my hand to typically pretty safe my mind has been kinda watching me do things. First, let me say that hand tool work is hard. I’m making a few tables and thought it was a good opportunity to practice flattening the tops using my planes. And, when all was said and done, they were definitely bet...
