A First Time for Everything and Everything a First...

1917 days ago by smartlikestick | 1 comment »

I finally made the commitment this spring and acquired enough stuff to try my hand at this dark art known as woodworking. Trees would tremble at the mention of my name! After being somewhat successful on creating a 5×8 box for my daughter, I came across the 30 Day Challenge being sponsored by The Sawdust Chronicles blog and decided to throw my hat into the ring. I figured this would be a great stepping stone in this journey. About the same time the details for the project were po...

Setting Up Shop #1: Introduction

1900 days ago by stidrvr | 2 comments »

Hello everyone! As my first attempt to contribute to, I figured I’d start of with my shop setup, or lack there of. Curently I reside in the basement, although nice in the winter, the stairs do not play well with others. Some people may think I’m crazy going from a basement shop to a garage shop in Wisconsin. Like I said the stairs are the biggest problem. Right now the garage in question currently holds most of the outdoor stuff. Since the garage is a 3 car, ...

Spray Booth #3: My $4 Drying Rack

1821 days ago by VerteramoFurniture7 | 1 comment »

Hello All, It’s been a while since I talked about what I wanted to do to my spray booth/garage second bay. The first thing I did was create a drying rack. I wanted to make one that was cheap and able to take apart if I needed some room. I decided to put it behind my bench where I could get to it but it is also out of the way. The spot I decided to put it will work for now but once I put in the second garage door I will have to build a moveable one. I built this rack out of ...

!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #22: Unisaw Update

1771 days ago by Bothus | 4 comments »

Well it says that it’s been 8 days since my last Unisaw post but that can’t be right because it seems like for-friggin’-ever! Nothing I gotta focus, my brain, not the camera. I finally ordered the touch up paint for my Unisaw. Hopefully it will be here next week. Hopefully it will be the correct color. If not, I guess I will have to have it mixed and buy a sprayer. Side note: I was adding tags to this post and under “Skill” I couldn’t find a tag...

LumberJock want to meet?

1737 days ago by rustfever | 3 comments »

As all now know, I pushed the ‘meeting’ of local LumberJocks at our regional WoodWorkingShow in Sacramento last weekend. Some 25 members identified themselves and signed the ‘book’. Additionally, we were able to tell our LumberJock mesage to over a hundrd people! And in the last few days, over 100 new members have signed up. [I would like to think those of us at the Sacramento show had some part in those 100 new members,] During this process, I found several bit...
