Random shop notes #5: Shopping, vising.

08-07-2010 03:38 AM by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Got out on the town today, and picked up some small tools I need. Chisels, files, a 2 ft. level, a bevel. And I finally got around to taking the old blade off the circular saw my FIL gave me. I clamped the blade into the machinists vice I’ve got, gave the bolt a jolt of wd-40, and then went at it with a wrench. I’ll get some new blades later this month. I also found a nice local sawmill that will do small lot surfacing and carries local hardwoods; they’ll als...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #11: The Actual "Butcher Block" part of the table...

08-21-2010 03:36 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Lots of cutting the last 2 nights… It’s not glued yet, the clamps are just there to help me hold it together and measure stuff. Tomorrow I’ll start gluing the strips up 6 or so at a time, and run them through the jointer/planer all at once to ensure they’re the proper thickness. Right now, they’re just over 1” thick, so hopefully when I’m done they won’t be 1/2”... I’ve bailed on the end-grain idea – this is going ...

My Shop E.T.A. Is About 3 Weeks

09-03-2010 02:14 AM by Imacman | 14 comments »

Hello All… really liking this site, I am currently building a Hobby workshop outback, it is 12 X 21 with 8 foot ceilings and a concrete floor.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #104: Today I Get To Scroll Saw

09-15-2010 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It has been a quiet week so far, but it has also been productive. It seems as if things go through cycles like that. I am not really used to quiet so it is rather odd to be able to work at such a good pace without many interruptions. Yesterday I finished my drawings and I got to the point of cutting the new sets of stars. I found a nice and light piece of maple to cut them from and the patterns are attached and I even drilled everything out. I often wish that they had blowers attached...

heating my shop

10-23-2010 03:25 AM by driscie | 6 comments »

I live in New Mexico just outside of Albuquerque where the weather most of the time is awesome. In the winter the temps can go down into the high 20’s at night, my is 20×20 and well insulated. I am looking for ways to heat the shop, have considered multiple ways. I like it comfortable enough to work in a shirt. Electric is too expensive, scared of a wood stove and it does take up valuable space, ductless gas heaters do not work in a dusty environment and that leaves only duc...

Strip Cedar Kayak #1: unfinished kayak

01-17-2011 06:17 PM by Jan Hinsch | 9 comments »

A couple of years ago I started looking into cedar strip kayaks in the internet. I find them amazing and although i’m not a very skilled woodworker I decided to give it a tray. I bought plans from ocean kayaks on the internet and started this journey with lots of ups and downs. Now I,m at the final stages but it’s gettin hard to finish. The only place big enough for me to do this project is a family farm that I only go on weekends on and off so it’s been like a Year and a ha...
