Work Bench project 1 #2: Work Bench update and pics of my little shop....bad quality pics sorry

01-20-2010 09:13 PM by scotta | 3 comments »

Alright everyone so I finally got into the shop last night and managed to do some glue ups and make some progress on my work bench. Sadly when I went to take pictures of my shop and the bench I realized I forgot my fancy expensive camera in the car my girlfriend took to school. SOOO They are the best quality since they were taken with my phone but you should be able to see whats in them. You’ll also be able to see how little I have to work with in my shop as of now haha. EnjoyLast n...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #9: Heading home tomorrow. Thoughts on digital devices.

01-20-2010 08:11 PM by Jim Bertelson | 16 comments »

Heading HomeWe are going back to Alaska tomorrow. I am totally relaxed, and ready to go home. Itching to get in the shop. Never did get my router ordered, but that is not critical to make my sled. Digital DevicesUpon reading a review, and commenting, on a digital angle gauge, I started a longer post, but decided it belonged in my blog. The topic of how to measure comes up periodically, but the advent of digital measuring devices adds a new dimension to the discussion. Anybody who has done ...

New Milestone

01-20-2010 08:11 PM by Jim Earl | 9 comments »

Well today marks a major milestone for me. I just got back from mailing out my first sale to an Art Gallery out of state. As you all has seen, I put pictures of my burnings on the internet and was surprised by an e-mail about a week ago from an Art Gallery wanting two of my Burnings. She said she had a gentleman wanting a couple of them. I sure hope this is the start of something. I am still looking for new pictures to burn on your boxws, any projects you may have. I am looking for a new woo...

Timberwolf blade

01-20-2010 07:45 PM by deeman | 5 comments »

Today I put on the new Timberwolf band saw blade I bought at the woodshow last Saturday. Tensioning it was a bit tricky, but after a few tries and playing around with it i finally got it. I wanted to try making a lock out of a big chunk of walnut that was given to me. I wanted to have a book matched face. So I set my new Kreg fence to just over half inch. The faces finish at 3/8. The new blade cut through the 3” walnut very easy. I was surprised. I have never had a band saw that cut as ...

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #1: box frames, wheels, and a height change

01-20-2010 02:08 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

In early December, a little more than a week before I flew home, I decided to make mom a cutting board. However, the garage was a mess. I spent some time figuring out what I could attack, cleaning off the back table to use for flattening the board after the glue-up, building the router sled and rails to perform the flattening, and as a slipped-in, totally unrelated side project, I built a quickie rolling lathe stand on the cheap, as I’m still looking for work. When I say “on the c...

Wooden tripod

01-20-2010 10:37 AM by PopsHuckster | 25 comments »

OK…finished the last leg today and put it all together tonight. Still need to put some urethane on it but want to field test it first. Had a suggestion from another wood worker to mount my digital inside an older box camera (wood of course) and then put it onthe tripod. Sounds like a neat idea for the car shows this year.

The American Craftsman WorkShop #22: Organization - Back At It Again!

01-20-2010 08:33 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

Just when I thought I was done… I started milling parts and realized that I needed my mobile parts cart. It is actually a 4’ scaffold that I decided worked better as a mobile parts cart. Over the last couple of years it had turned into a permanent storage cart for templates and all around catch-all cart. I stopped work and got a few sticks of framing lumber. I picked the best I could find and cleaned them up in my sanding machine. I drilled 1/2” holes every six inc...

They didn't lie when they said not to put wood on the floor

01-20-2010 07:29 AM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

Here in southern california we are experiencing the unusual phenomenon of water falling from the sky. Now, I grew up in the Northeast so a little rain never bothered me but these days it does. Since I started becoming a little more serious about woodworking I have been reading A LOT of books and websites on how to set up a shop. One of the main things that I read was that you really shouldn’t store your wood directly on concrete because it can absorb moisture from the concrete. We...
