Pie Crust Table #5: The edge completed!

05-06-2009 05:01 AM by GaryK | 24 comments »

It’s been nice to get the chance to work in my shop. I get 2 hours when my daughter takes her nap anda couple hours when she’s with my wife. Now the easy part. Just cutting with my templates. Here is the inside radius. Got some burn marks from where I ground the bearing off. I’ll just need to clean it up later.....The classical plunge bit.....The step cut.....And finally the outside radius.....Well, this completes the outside edge of the top, finally! It’s downhi...

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #1: Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart

05-06-2009 03:40 AM by Jack Barnhill | 10 comments »

I have a small shop, about 200SF. It’s not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it’s not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to accomdate the operation of the moment, I thought I would adopt the “everything on wheels” strategy and double up what tools I could in single cabinets. So, to make sure that I had the right designs and that everything would fit in the shop and ...

Greenhouse #6: Another busy evening

05-06-2009 02:22 AM by Zuki | 5 comments »

I started by drilling holes through the top plate of the walls. When we install the roof I will redrill the holes through the roof frame so that I can bolt it all together. We unrolled the poly around the greenhouse and cut it. We then unfolded it and started attaching. Here I am marking it with a Sharpie so that we will have 6’ overlap on the top plate. Going around the sides. This is definitely a 2 person job. DW has taken a break to take a pic. I’m marking again. ...

Woodworking Journal #7: New addition to Workshop

05-06-2009 01:11 AM by DonFaulk0517 | 2 comments »

For my birthday (a few days in advance due to a sale at Home Depot) my family purchased a Ridgid Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander for me… which will be a great addition to my workshop. I fell in love with this sander at a woodworking show last Fall when I used it to build a Band Saw box. The oscillating action with the belt sander worked perfect for fine-tuning the shape of the box (a kidney shaped box). I look forward to building more boxes… and am once again indebted to my w...

So as boring as mine may be, I have decided to put down in print all my planning, dreams, hopes victories AND failures as I start down the road of starting a new stand alone business. Many of you know That I have been in the remodeling b...

Pie Crust Table #4: Working on the inside edge

05-05-2009 09:51 PM by GaryK | 15 comments »

Now I feel like David Marks with all the templates, but it was the only way I could think of that was fool proof. By fool proof I mean that you can’t wander with the router and cut off what you didn’t want to. I needed to make three paper patterns. One for each of the cuts I will be making. Here are two of them taped to the template before cutting.......These were made from the corners of MDF like the one for the outside. I had to leave more material on the outside edge so that...

New Light and Fan Box

05-05-2009 07:59 PM by MauBow | 3 comments »

I had always been disappointed with my light setup at the lathe. Until recently I had a 4ft. fluorescent light with 2 T8 daylight bulbs directly above the lathe and 3 100watt equivalent low voltage bulbs mounted in clip on fixtures from HD. It was adequate but I was constantly moving the clip ons or they would just slip and need to be readjusted. Then I stumbled upon this picture I had saved on my work computer. I couldn’t remember where I had copied it from but then, while resea...
