There are times in our lives where we either hold what we got or change everything. The past few weeks there has been a change in my way of thinking I have gotten away from my O.C.D and havent taken the time to organize and plan, that ladys and gentle men will be my workshop focus. Changing everything and cleaning up my act making it new and nice or at least cleaner and newer.

002: a rolling base for my planer #2: flush sanding, a drawer, and a nice big mistake

05-20-2009 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I got the casters on yesterday, cutting some scrap wood board to fit along the edges inside the bottom, and joining them in with pocket hole screws from underneath. Extra sturdy now, and the wheels are all in plane with each other. I wasn’t sure how tall they were, and it was critical, as I was designing this to be as high as possible, while still fitting comfortably under my work table. I have Rockler’s digital height gauge, and it showed me they were all exactly 2.5” (actu...

Using dyes on turned pieces #2: Finished!

06-08-2009 01:01 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 6 comments »

My original intent was to put three colors of dye on this hollow form – green followed by blue and then yellow. A funny thing happened a couple of days ago. Some folks dropped by my workshop studio and one of the ladies claimed that this piece was talking to her. I explained that I still had to put another coat of dye on it, but she insisted that the piece was happy the way it was and just wanted to be shiny. Since she was paying me cold hard cash I figured hey if this piece of wood...

What a waste

07-19-2009 05:14 AM by Mely5862 | 19 comments »

July is a very hot month here. Although the rest of the year is very nice, the summers are extreme. I had been hoping to have time to work out in my garage but its nearly unbearable with temp. up to 114 and even hotter in the garage. I recently purchased a porable air conditioner and tried it out today. What a disappointment. It hardly made a difference and the air blew hot. I know many of you deal with very hot summers. Any suggestions? I don’t want to throw away anymore money at the ...

Router Table Insert for my Table Saw

10-13-2009 02:50 PM by Jimi_C | 14 comments »

Mentioned this in a comment yesterday, and got started on it last night. I’m creating a router table insert for my Craftsman table saw using 1/2” sheets of MDF laminated together. There’s also a 1” strip glued vertically across the bottom on one edge (like an I-beam) for extra support. Here it is,glued up: Alternate title: meticulously sealing my MDF topped bench one drop of glue at a time :D You can see my table saw in the background. The bottom sheet is...

Rainy day activity

10-30-2009 04:34 AM by dustyal | 3 comments »

We had several days of rain… plans were canceled. So, messing around in the saw dust room I found a stick (actually it found me by falling on my head while I was rummaging around) so I made a quick and dirty Fibonacci gauge. I need to use better wood and remake it… this was a “concept” piece. I spent more time rummaging around in a parts bin to find little bolts and nuts (that matched) then I did making it. It is accurate enough… .625 vs .618 I think it is s...

These are a bit small for individual blogs so I am throwing these together. 1) maple pepper mill2) skinner knife – snakewood This is my first time making a knife. I may have made the scales a bit small. If I don’t like them, then I will have to move from snakewood to some maple burl. I will have to make the leather case for this too. I want to by a Beall buff for these 2 but so far the “why don’t we save money by you making the Christmas gifts this yearR...
