Kitchen Remodel #4: Still No Table saw!!

2302 days ago by SteveV | 4 comments »

Well, this project has been on hold until my new Grizzly G0651 arrives. Grizzly told me twice, once before I ordered and once after I ordered, that the new saws were due into their warehouse around May 9th. So, I decided to trust them even know I heard rumors on the Internet that others were told June. I ordered the saw and put this project on hold. I decided to send them an email the other day since the May 9th date was fast approaching. I received an email back within an hour saying ...

Dog Bench #2: New tools for a new project: Kreg Jig and Router Bit

2248 days ago by kshipp | 3 comments »

It’s not that I think of new projects as reasons to buy new tools. As you know, it’s not hard to find reasons to buy new tools. I was thinking about making this dog bench and the best way to do it. I had read a lot of the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig and figured I would give it a shot. I got a good deal on the Master System from Rockler and I have been very pleased with it so far. I’ll try to get an official review up soon but for an unofficial review I’d say 5 stars. I...

Lego Table #2: A Tough Day in the Shop

2117 days ago by Eric | 7 comments »

So yesterday I went to the lumber yard and bought all the wood I expected to need for the lego table. I was pleasantly surprised at the price. I bought 12.5 board feet of kapur (30’ of 1”x4” and 10’ of 1”x3”) for $18.25 and a 4’x8’ sheet of 1/2” plywood for $13.75. I tried to pick boards that were straight and not warped, and at least in that respect, I succeeded. Today I had some good dedicated shop time. My first task was to cut the b...

lathe stand upgrade #1: Lathe Stand upgrade

2062 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 4 comments »

I had tried several different ways to store my turning tools and accessories and remembered an article that was in issue #137 September 2008 American Woodworker (page 52), original design idea by Ray Lanham. This is a simple stand that is built under the lathe bed between the legs. The stand incorporates a ballast box that holds sand. I altered the plans to fit my lathe. This project was built from plywood I had left over from other projects. The PVC pipe is 2 inches in diameter. I cut...
