Shop Remodel #2: Making use of new space - shop layout

09-27-2014 03:29 AM by Rick M. | 10 comments »

My shop is 16×20 which sounds like a decent size except only about half is usable for woodworking, the other half is storage, lumber, etc. Here is how I started the week. This is where I’m at. This is where I think I want to be. Anything outside the shop (except A/C) are things I don’t have a place for. Anything in dashed lines doesn’t exist yet but I might build. The red line is where I have electric, eventually it will run to the back half but at the ...

Chaotic Pattern Cutting Board

09-27-2014 01:31 AM by lobro4 | 4 comments »

I have seen some markedly ornate cutting boards here on LJ but this style always intrigued me. I give full credit to MTM Wood for the how to. This Russian fellow has a website where he sells his boards and a YouTube channel that shows how to make many of the fancy styles you see. But unlike him, I do not have a large capacity sliding table saw. Nor do I have a 20” planer. Nor do I have a dual-drum sander. So here’s now I did it with my 13’ Dewalt planer and my 10”...

Bookcase with Angled Back

09-27-2014 12:32 AM by lobro4 | 0 comments »

One of my partner’s daughter needed a book shelf to fit into an odd space. There was 26” of flat wall and then 13” of wall turned in at 45 degrees. At 11-years old, she needed a space for books and trinkets. My design was to make a series of fixed shelves the would be embedded in the back and honeycomb through the shelf on one side. The build is solid 4/4 poplar for the carcass, face frame and shelves. The back of the main compartment is 3/4 poplar plywood and the bac...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #8: Chevalight

09-27-2014 12:17 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

As I get older my eyes seem to require more and more light to see fine detail. That is a problem when cutting on the chevalet, especially when cutting piece by piece (classic) style where line following is critical. After trying all sorts of floor mounted lamp solutions I finally decided to put a little thought into a chevalet mounted light source that would1) give good illumination from the left side of the blade,2) not interfere with my left hand manipulating the packet,3) not interfere wit...

The Zen of Woodworking #2: Steps

09-26-2014 04:07 PM by BigAxe | 0 comments »

Wood working appears to have a number a number of separate and well defined steps. Each step requires its own tools and skill set. Step 1: Go into the woods, find a tree and cut it up into boards. Allow the boards to season for two or more years. I suspect many wood workers forgo this step and head directly to a lumber yard. I know of one headstone and probably there are more which reads “Killed by the fall of a tree”. I have bought some lumber from lumber yards, but now I te...

Setting up shop #4: Needless to say, but we park on the driveway

09-26-2014 02:39 PM by WoodGuyScott | 3 comments »

Well, I realize it’s been quite some time since the last post, and there’s a good reason. My wife and I moved out of the condo we were renting and into our very first house. We’re crazy excited to be home owners, but there have been quite a few challenges. We got a good price in a nice area of a decent part of the country, but our new home needs work. We got the painting done, replaced some flooring, and put in a dishwasher. That was the easy stuff. Right now I&#...
