New shop under construction #7: Things are coming together

01-16-2009 03:34 AM by Loogie | 11 comments »

I’ve been working on/in the shop all fall and things are taking shape. My next major project is to build Bob's Bench to replace my existing bench. I’ll then move my old bench under the window in the back corner. After that I’m going to build a low assembly table. Third on the list is some rolling storage carts under the stairs to maximize that space. For now, I’m pretty happy with the way things are coming together. One lesson learned is that it helps to have...

Complete Shop Remodel #1: Down to business

01-16-2009 12:00 AM by jackd942 | 4 comments »

After considering a complete shop remodel for a couple of years now (seriously for the last year), I have decided to bite the bullet and go for it. One of the first things I did was to make a trip to Grizzly in Springfield, MO (about 4 hours from my house) and purchase a few new tools. I purchased a 2hp dust collector a 3hp cabinet saw, 17” extreme series bandsaw and a very large 15” planer on an enclosed base. I also bought some other shop items, but these were the big ticket ite...

Here’s another project I took on in hopes of challenging myself to step-up my game by trying things I had not yet tried. This piece involved a lot of very small mortise and tenon joints, a type of joinery with which I had little experience, having never cut a true “hidden” mortise and having employed only thru tenons which I produced exclusively with the aid of my trusty power tools. This design however called for twenty six “mini” MT joints ( ¼”-x- ¾” tenons) that needed to be cut by hand. N...

Rockin' Ride #5: Finishing and final assembly

01-15-2009 06:27 AM by kshipp | 2 comments »

Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...

Rockin' Ride #4: Assembly Process

01-15-2009 05:04 AM by kshipp | 0 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I used the Kreg screw system for most of the joinery on this project. This is my second major project (first one here) using this system and I have found them to be very strong. It’s also very quick to join pieces with this system which helped me do this project in only 4 days exclusive of some of the finishing. This was also my first time using the Kreg plugs which I’ve started a forum topic on here. I always get to the end of the build an...

Ash Dinning Table #3: Legs, Apron, Attached Breadboard Ends

01-15-2009 04:13 AM by TimberMan | 2 comments »

It’s been a bit busy at work the past few weeks but was able to get a little time in the shop this past weekend. I got to test out my new JFM-5 mortise and absolutely love it. It made cutting the mortise a piece of cake. After cutting them I cleaned up the bottom of the mortises and then off to the tenons. Since I had to cut tenons on the 8’ long apron I took the opportunity to make a miter sled out of some scrap birch plywood and MDF that I had on hand. I also, finally, sp...

There was a lot of interest in meeting up with each other at the show in February so I thought a separate blog for that event only was a good idea.
