New Shop Upgrades #1: Outfeed table/router station

03-17-2010 03:27 AM by childress | 4 comments »

I recently moved into my new place about 4 weeks ago, since then, I’ve made some new stuff to create a good work flow. You can see below that I started with a new outfeed table by taking off the router extension on the right of the saw table, and building one unit that wraps around the saw. I needed to remove the router extension because I had to set the saw against the wall (almost) to get clearance on the left side, since this is a downsized shop from before. After building this table...

Stitch and glue Kayak?

03-17-2010 03:26 AM by Mark Edmondson | 5 comments »

I found a Web site that has software to design a stitch and glue kayak. Once your design is complete, you send the file to the company, which charges you to render the plan into a template, then sends you an image file to print off. Here is the link: Has anyone done this? Because I want to , but I’m interested in seeing some detail pictures of the seams before I commit to building a boat this way. Thanks!

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #3: Finishing the top

03-17-2010 02:33 AM by Ger21 | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I started on this, but was busy with my new job. But the weather forced me back into action. We’re having an unseasonably warm spring. 8 inches of snow melted in a few days, then rain, and 50°-60° temps. And a huge amount of humidity. I went out in the garage the other day, and was terrified to see the pieces that I ad already glued down loose on the torsion box. The humidity had expanded them so much that they were popping loose, actually tearing the s...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #1: Getting Started

03-17-2010 02:07 AM by kharder | 1 comment »

Hi Everyone, I am starting this blog series to document the process of building Sunshine, a 10’6” wooden yacht tender. She was originally designed for rowing, but I am building the sailing version. I purchased plans quite a while ago from Duct Trap Woodworking and am getting started by building a scale model. The model will be complete in every way possible so that I can work out all the problems before starting the full size build. The first step I have taken is to sc...

The day the music died. Or got washed.

03-16-2010 11:00 PM by Tim29 | 20 comments »

Sad day for the woodshop today. If any of you are like me you like to have something to listen to besides the whir of powertools bouncing off the inside of your head while you woodwork (this may not apply to you handtool woodworkers). I like to listen to my mp3 player with earbuds underneath my hearing protection. I get in from a wonderful day of working in the shop, take off the hoodie I was wearing and hang it on the back of a chair and go about doing other things in the house. My loving wi...

Rocking Chair featured in New Mexico Magazine

03-16-2010 10:40 PM by scott shangraw | 6 comments »

The most recent issue of New Mexico Magazine (April 2010) has featured our Black Walnut with Curly Cherry Rocking chair. This rocker was made for a woodworker friend of ours, to give to his wife for Christmas. The Black walnut came from an approximate 600 year old tree that was dead standing along the Hondo River, just outside of Ruidoso NM. It was some of the most beautiful walnut we have ever seen, with dark, almost black burling and blond sap wood going through it. The figure was incredibl...

Local Resources #1: New wood source Local Wood In Berryville, VA

03-16-2010 08:47 PM by BradHess | 8 comments »

So today on my way back from Winchester I stopped in at a new wood store in Berryville, VA which opened last week. They have a great selection of locally cut and dried lumber (Cherry, Oak, Ash, Walnut, Cedar, and Popular among others) and their prices are very competitive and in most cases less than other shops in the area. The owner is knowledgeable and a very friendly guy that is looking to cater to local woodworkers. Check them out at While there I was able ...

SHELVES, DAMN SHELVES! #1: It's alive, I tell you, it's ALIVE!

03-16-2010 06:13 PM by Rich99 | 2 comments »

After almost three weeks, i got all the permanent pieces of this monster shelf system (MSS) glued up. Here it is in my shop: I should have named this entry “It’s Too Late Now”, because i screwed up this project (not with screws but by a measurings mistake) and only discovered it after after the first four parts (top, sides and permanent shelf) were already glued and dried. When I added the middle uprights and side shelves i discovered that i only added one tenon fo...
