Outdoor Morris Chair #25: A Footstool

05-13-2011 10:53 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

The book didn’t have plans for a footstool, but there are plans here. With my new Drill Press Table, this should be a snap. I’ve cut the legs. And joined the legs together by moving the fence on my Drill press table and setting up a stop block. I love it, these are all identical. Here the legs are assembled.

Lowering a cabinet saw for use by the disabled in a wheelchair....Part 3

05-25-2011 02:30 AM by lilredweldingrod | 25 comments »

Now that the table saw is lowered, more toys need to be lowered to be useful in the shop. So now I’m trying to come to grips with the loss of the outfeed table and the need to relocate other tools for combinations of uses.Today I lowered the shaper 5 inches and trimmed it to be 5/16” lower than the table saw and the same with the band saw. The idea is that I can have them close by for use or the be the outfeed table, What do you think?Everything is on Shop Fox mobile bases the sam...

Here are a couple toys that found me. 1) a warrant superior saw. missing a brass brad, and has a mysterious hole drilled also. 2)sargent co #418 fore plane (most excited about) after cleaning the burnt motor oil/cat hair film (yuuuuk) a little sharpen, and let her go…. 3) no name jack plane, no markings, appears to have been red at one point (from peeking under the tote). Im a bit thick-headed guy by nature, but this recent introduction to the idea of “...

MicroMesh Identification Tip

09-01-2011 07:37 AM by alfa189 | 3 comments »

I know I’m not the first one to come up with something like this, but I figured I’d share it anyway. When you buy micromesh sanding pads, they are color coded, but come in a pack of 9 (yes, nine) different grits. I used to write a number on each grit, but quickly found that they smudge beyond legibility even when using a sharpie. So I came up with this simple, quick refernce system. As you can see, it’s quite easy to keep them all in order this way.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #494: "Oh, Dear! Oh Dear! I Shall Be Late!"

10-17-2011 05:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning at 4:48 am. I knew I had a lot to do this morning, but opted to close my eyes for just a bit more anyway. After all, on Sunday I got up around five and didn’t go to bed until almost midnight. Surely I would get everything done. I woke up a second time around 5:50. This time I got up and got moving. I was watching my coffee in the microwave at exactly 6 am and thinking about all that I needed to accomplish before leaving the house this morning. I woul...

Workbenches...finally #1: Workbench # 1, the Sjobergs bench

12-01-2011 06:39 PM by Shopsmithtom | 4 comments »

A while back, I spent $90 at an estate type auction for a disassembled woodworking bench. I noticed that it said “Sjobergs” on it & figured I was safe at that price, as a Harbor Freight woodworking bench that was not as stout routinely sold on sale for about $120. This bench looked like it was hardly used. When I got it home, I discovered that it was what appeared to be an earlier model of the current Nordic Plus 1660 bench. The only difference was the lower shelf configuratio...

Handscrew Clamps #1: Get a handle on it..

12-18-2011 09:15 PM by jeth | 3 comments »

Hello all, I thought I’d post a short blog on the handscrew clamps I have just made. I was short on clamps for extra cauls on some laminated panels I am working on, as usual i didn’t find what I need on sale here so I had to knock something together. I won’t be posting all the details of the construction as the design is based on danriffles project here... (Thanks Dan :)As I don’t have a lathe, or a source of hardwood dowels, or time at this moment to build the ro...
