A journey into the workshop. #25: Tuning my Groz #4. You'd be amazed how sweaty you can get...

11-01-2009 03:55 AM by dbhost | 10 comments »

Like most new planes, heck, what am I saying, like most planes, period, new or new to you, my Groz #4 was in need of a tuning. First things first check the sole for flatness… Heel to toe dead flat. This is a good sign, Side to side it is concave, at 120 grit I get scratches all the way accross, but moving up the grits the ones in the very center don’t even hardly come out. Time to work this plane on the sharpening board. Now I am pretty sure this isn’t the RIGHT way to do...

Workshop #10: Bandsaw works great!!

11-01-2009 03:11 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

So in my last blog I noted that I have added a bandsaw to my arsenal of tools. It was a great deal and needed a new blade and some quick cleaning up. Well I went and got a blade yesterday and cleaned up the saw and installed the new blade today. Then I just played around a bit. Here are the two projects I did in order to play around some and get familiar with the tool. I decided I would just post them here and not as an actual project, maybe I’ll have something by the end of the weekend...

I saw a contest #1: 50 Piece Router Bit Giveaway Drawing

11-01-2009 01:34 AM by RouterManiac | 6 comments »

I found this giveaway and thought I would pass it along. Its a drawing for a free router bit set with cabinet. I can always use more router bits and I am sure you can too. The odds have to be better than the lottery for winning. You could give it as a nice gift or keep it for yourself. Wouldn’t you know it, I bought this set about a year ago and now they are giving one away! 50 Piece router bit set

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #13: Using steel rebar for a lumber rack, and Expanding my shop.

10-31-2009 11:48 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I’ve been way to crowded in my shop, especially since I went from a radial arm saw to a table saw. A radial arm saw works fine in a narrow shop, because it’s against the wall Plus adding a thickness planer. I haven’t use the automobile side of my garage for years now. About all its been used for is to accumulate things.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a rough sketch of my floor plan. I plan to keep the partition down the cent...

Adventures in Finding Cheep Quality Wood

10-31-2009 05:24 PM by AllTen | 7 comments »

Let me start off by saying; yes the title is a bit of an unreal statement at times, but some times you can do it. About a week or two ago I found a deal on for some cheep red oak. Now I have been trying to get around the price of finishing off one of my friends projects for him on the cheep seeing how its cost him a lot of money all ready. So two days ago I called the gentlemen from the add and he said he had a deal for me. He has about 30 or so 2×12 and 8 to 12ft long pieces o...

Pangapanga sideboard #2: Starting in the middle

10-31-2009 05:50 AM by RobertHorton | 6 comments »

I’m already a bit into this project and I’ll be nibbling at it for several months. Here’s a recap of what’s happened so far:This is what it will ultimately look like. We’re not particularly big wine drinkers, so a small bay will just about hold our entire stock of booze. I haven’t decided what to do with the doors, but this got me far enough for a cut list on the carcase and veneers. The point of this project is a.) to showcase some Pangapanga that the ...
