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 ...

Making Wood from Wood ;)

12-01-2009 03:38 PM by David Craig | 2 comments »

Been busy with my day job lately but was able to spend a few hours downstairs. I am finally starting to deal with my wood hoard and getting pieces together for small gifts for a couple family members. Mostly weekend style projects that probably will include an ornament or two and a couple of boxes. I am a notorious hoarder of wood and I have wood scraps, pieces of furniture, and even a few rough pieces of wood that I saved from a maple tree I cut down a couple years ago. At the time of cut...

Garden Gate III #3: Plumbers

12-01-2009 08:38 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

So now that I’m on my third gate, and, including my arched bed my fourth or fifth or sixth plumb cut, I’ve found that the quickest and most accurate way to make the sides of the arch parallel to the sides of the bottom is to use the bottom rail as a guide. First I cut the bottom rail to width, in this case 28” (the stiles are 6” each for a total width of 40”, I hope). I then place the bottom rail on the cutoff sled and bump it up against the blade. Then I line...

Key Holder: Closer

12-01-2009 08:21 AM by Seth | 7 comments »

After Thanksgivings #s two and three, after two days of painting our bedroom and cleaning up the mess that created, it was finally time to turn my attention to the keyholder. My dad was nice enough to give me his inherited router, which was the piece of equipment that lit a fire under my hobby-searching self. For some reason, the idea of rounding edges or being able to cut canals out of wood made the whole thing a lot more appealing. Here’s my makeshift workshop: That’...

Some Context

12-01-2009 08:14 AM by Seth | 3 comments »

I feel the need to give a bit more context. Both for this project, and for my wood projects on the whole. Let’s start with the project (still the key holder—still not sure if that’s one word or two). Here is where the keyholder is going: Here is why the key holder is going where it is: The slight difference in texture is due to the fact that there used to be a 1980s alarm box in the space (tackily cut into the window frame next to it) that I removed before...
