How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #20: Just an Update...

06-20-2012 03:50 AM by Chickenfoot | 6 comments »

I have sold the rest of the Delta Scroll & Band Saw parts as well as the Delta RAS for another $400. I was at $2365 but spent another $70 at Paul’s (see the last blog posting) on some very nice wood and a couple more clamps and things so my total dropped to $2295 plus the $400 makes it $2695. I had a friend call me today who restores old Delta machines. Looks like he’s low on cash for another project and he wants’ to sell me a couple Delta 1460 wood lathes, Should have m...

Garage to Work Shop Conversion #7: Umm. It's pretty hot in there.

07-05-2012 06:21 PM by twoblacklabs | 8 comments »

Before trying to solve the heat problems, I wanted to document how hot it really was. So I picked an $8 indoor/outdoor remote thermometer. I placed one sensor in the shop at ceiling level. No desire to climb the ladder and place it at peak height. The plan is record temps today (and stay out of the oven), cut the roof tomorrow morning before it’s too stinking hot and install ridge venting and see how much it helps. Forecast for the today and tomorrow are similar. HOT. Tomorrow...

Pallet Craft #8: Bunk Bed Recycled Quick Fix!

07-20-2012 01:03 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...

You Design It, I Build It project #2: Last Day For Ideas

08-03-2012 11:52 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Just wanted to remind everyone that today is the last day for the “You design it, I build it” project. I will put a poll up on Sunday for everyone to vote on what type of project we will be doing. So far I’ve had a bench, hall table, corn hole game, and 2 side tables. Leave any ideas that you have and I’ll add it to the list.

My First Workbench #6: Day 6: Short on time...

08-18-2012 12:56 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

Didn’t get nearly what I wanted accomplished today. Must have jinxed myself yesterday by posting a proposed timeline for the next few days. All in all, I got 3 of the remaining 2×4s face-planed today, with minimal fuss and sweat and time. In fact, I got them smooth in less than 30 minutes ( a new record for me!). Which is good, because that was about all the time I had to spare today! Sadly, that meant there was really no need to take pictures. I have continued to make pr...

Around the Shop #4: Another weekend of some Flea Market finds.

09-02-2012 10:05 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

So I had kind of an odd weekend. I found out even flea markets are pricey in CT. The Elephants trunk was a bit of a bust. Prices were way out of norm for me. I did managed to squeak out one Sargent block. Maybe a #306? $5. I always do well at stormville though. I picked up a type 17ish #7 in great shape, a type 11 #5c, an earlier #4 that needs some love, a Sargent #415 that needs a lot of love, and a Nice #2 (Orange frog). The new #2. This is after some quick clean up and sha...

Lamp Mounting Plates Day 2: Progress

11-27-2012 12:37 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Got a hold of some free time today during naps and continued work on Jim’s aspen mounting plates for his new garage lights. I took the two blanks of wood that I had sketched the design on from last time—-here’s the picture from the last entry to refresh your memory (Thanksgiving and vacation right before that really but a damper on my shop time): As you can see I had cut the first plate with the coping saw (that took a while and wasn’t that easy to control, but I...

Revland Lakeside Coffee Table #1: day # one on coffee table

12-13-2012 10:27 PM by steve revland | 0 comments »

Day 1. Starting cutting layers of mdf for my coffee table today, using the original template from 2005. By utilizing a straight edge router bit with pilot, the middle 1/2 slab of mdf becomes the master slab, as I’ll show later. I use mdf substrate for all my veneered pieces. Very stable. More detailed blogging from my web site: Stay tuned…...
