5$ Garage Sale Treasure-A refurbished Miter Trimmer

07-18-2017 02:54 PM by Greg | 3 comments »

Pretty stoked to run across a nice old miter trimmer that a guy was selling at a garage sell this past weekend. I asked him how much and he first said, ”$10” then changed his mind and said, “Give me 5$.” I said, “SOLD!” I brought it home and piece of scrap cherry to try it out. I sliced off a 45° angle with an effortless slice and could not stop grinning at my luck. I have always wanted one but never could justify the price every time I create a so...

Simple box to hold candy #3: Lid is cut...grooves and such

07-18-2017 09:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I had gone out to buy a few supplies for the shop, Monday…. And, I finally found the parts for the Langdon Mitre Box’s stock holders…. Figured I could just slip down to the shop, and at least install them….something was calling … The box wanted out of the clamps….took a while to remove all of them… Looking like something the cat dragged in…top wasn’t much better.. Well, since I did buy a new 80grit belt for the sander&...

Building my Workbench #14: Not Much but Right-Side-UP!!

07-18-2017 08:26 AM by HokieKen | 15 comments »

Not much to say but I am so excited I just had to post a quick update. Yesterday I assembled the base with the long stretchers fit loosely. Then I wrestled the top onto it. Turned out to be pretty easy and I didn’t need any help at all. Just slid it on the base and then went around tapping here and there until all the mortises fell on their tenons. Then I drove in the drawbore pegs for the long stretchers and the base is done. Now I just have to pin the top to ...

Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #1: Where it starts

07-17-2017 08:21 PM by Tony Ennis | 3 comments »

After a few years of neglect, I recently started bringing my woodshop back to life. So much junk everywhere. I took old power tools, a tackle box full of stuff, and two beat up toolboxes (with some tools) down to the road. These toolboxes had been dropped from my father in-law’s truck 10 times. None of this stuff meant anything to me. That is, a dried up can of plumber’s putty and rusty cast iron fittings hold no sentimental value. Anything at the end of the road is fair gam...

Major problem, need ideas,

07-17-2017 07:53 PM by MBAJIM | 18 comments »

This really doesn’t have anything to do with woodworking, but more-so my idiot brother-in-law that is stealing everything of mine. It started a long dang time ago, and it is just getting worse and worse. I’m 36 now, when I was 15 he stole a 30-30 gun, no idea where its went—a second degree felony—tents, sleeping bags, tools, baseball equipment, a computer, ~$6,000 total. More recently he has stole ~$900 of brand new Ryobi cordless tools and batteries. I don’t ...

Workshop recovery (South LA Flood 2016) #6: Finished the exterior

07-17-2017 06:35 AM by FreddieMac | 3 comments »

I have finally finished the exterior with the help of the wife and dodging rainstorms for the past two weeks. We decided to put vinyl siding on the exterior to match the house. A look at the front once it was finised. My last shop had one small window and I did not get much natural light. I decided to put a big window over the area where my work bench and table saw would be. Essential equipment in Louisiana, the air conditioner window. I sealed my last shop pretty tight and did n...

Building my Workbench #13: Still Upside Down... But Better

07-17-2017 06:24 AM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

Had a little bit of time this week and got a few things done. I didn’t get the bench right-side-up… yet. But, I’m ready to now! WOO-HOO! First thing I did after the last update was to finish drilling out my dog/holdfast holes. I did the row closest to the edge with 4” spacing. The other row is on 12” centers. I didn’t want to “Swiss Cheese” it too much so the second row is spaced to ensure my 8” holdfasts can get anywhere on the b...
