New shop! #4: Shop furniture: I will do it right this time! -- Outfeed table

08-20-2016 02:23 PM by Steve Felsheim | 2 comments »

Given I was moving from a shared shop, I had zero shop furniture and no storage. Ugh. I have always been lazy with my shop furniture. Basically 2×4s and plywood slapped together so I could get back to furniture projects. I always paid for this wil frustration down the road. I am trying very hard to think it through and make sure I can store what I need where I use it. I figured I need the following to be fully functional. 1.) Outfeed table for the table saw.2.) Miter bench t...

Big Rig by T& J #7: BIG RIG DONE

08-20-2016 01:34 PM by svfdfireman | 3 comments »

I have finished the assembly of the rig. a few spots to sand and a coat of sanding sealer. Then a few coats of polyurethane gloss. Things I learned in this build. Finish the interior before putting on the roof. Should have put purpleheart strip on the doors. After reading all the How To on making wheels I will try that next. Use other plans to add items to customize the build.

Marquetry School #9: Prepping for Piece by Piece Course

08-20-2016 01:14 AM by shipwright | 5 comments »

Fall classes are rolling around in a few weeks and there’s something new. I now have students who have enough experience to benefit from a piece by piece class and two will be taking advantage this September. This means that I have to prepare a palette of colours, grain patterns, and species of veneer in packets of four for them to design their pieces around.Today, I selected and cut thirty-five packets complete with backers (no front “wasters” on piece by piece packets). To...

Drawer runners

08-20-2016 01:11 AM by Moosesman | 6 comments »

Im making a dresser and don’t want to buy cheap drawer slides and can’t afford the expensive ones. I am a flooring installer and have some oak hardwood flooring scraps. I want to cut out the tongue and groove and use it as the guides for the drawers. They would be screwed into the case sides and then glued into dados on drawers. I tried it on a mock up and it worked pretty good. I wanted to get some thoughts from my fellow lumberjocks. Here is a pic of the tongue and groove cut ou...

New Shop - from the ground , up. #17: Building a lumber rack

08-19-2016 01:56 PM by curliejones | 1 comment »

I’m big into re- or up- cycling and some of the materials on hand are getting their 3rd or 4th use. There is a point, though, where storing the old material is more headache than it is worth. I built a drop shed long before building the new workshop and now I must organize that drop shed to accommodate firewood, building materials, barbeque grills, etc that were housed under the old boat and firewood shed. I’ve seen folks build lumber racks using 3/4” ...

Dual Miter Saw station #2: Adding the side wing cabinets

08-19-2016 03:08 AM by Tooch | 4 comments »

So my last work session saw a lot of good progress on this project, but we are far from done. I needed to finish a support cabinet on either side of each miter saw, as well as a small space to house the Oneida. Let’s start with the basic layout of the base cabinets And then we assemble and add stability: Angle brackets were made.with plywood and a pocket hole jig: A small the bottom to prevent sagging…. After the cabinet went together, it was time to atta...

New shop! #3: March 2016. Epoxy floor

08-18-2016 11:16 PM by Steve Felsheim | 1 comment »

As mentioned by BurlyBob in my first post, epoxy seemed like a good thing to do. I hate sweeping up concrete, finished epoxy looks nice and brightens things up a great deal. The problem is, it was early March in WI and still below zero. I needed to get the floor up to 63 F before I could apply the epoxy. So, I cranked the heat, and waited. After two days, I was getting close. It took 3 full days to get the concrete up to temp. Then comes the acid prep and rising. Bleh. He...
