Workshop Tips #1: Safety Note - Oily Rags

11-30-2008 11:16 PM by DonFaulk0517 | 5 comments »

Oily Rag Safety Tip Most people know that spontaneous combustion can occur when oily rags are left in a bunch or thrown together in a trash can. A friend of mine didn’t realize this and had a small fire in his basement shop. Based on this, I thought it would be a good idea to pass along a tip that is easy to use and can prevent this from occurring to others. I use oil for finishing and use a simple device that takes away the worry of spontaneous combustion. I drape my rags and bru...

A small conference table - the build #4: The top is ready for finish

02-02-2009 05:03 AM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Progress! The table top is back, cut to final length, and sanded (sorry, no chance to take photos of my friend’s amazing shop). I beveled the edges, using a table edge bit for the topside, and a small, 1/8-inch roundover for the bottom side. Routing the top bevel free-hand requires much care and concentration, as this bit is large: The bevel profile: I am very pleased with the overall appearance of this table top. The bevel will provide a much bett...

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #4: I Hate Sanding

03-28-2009 07:41 PM by Matt | 4 comments »

Putting on the tape and mud isn’t so bad. However, sanding absolutely sucks! There, I feel much better. Actually, things are going pretty well. I have about 60% of the garage/shop done. I still have another coat to put on some spots and the area above the garage door to finish. I’m planning to run some wiring in the next week and look to build a small lumber storage area above the garage door. I’m not cramped, by any means, in here but any additional storage is alw...

Setting up Workshop #1: Workbench status

04-14-2009 04:17 PM by Walt33 | 5 comments »

I am currently trying to establish a work area/shop in my garage. It is a challenge as one might imagine trying to find space in which to do so, but things are coming along pretty good. I have the workbench just about finished, all I have left to do is finish the table top. Next, I hope to build some sort of tool cabinet in which to make tool storage a little better.

My tools #1: My Craftsman Electronic 10" contractor series Table Saw

05-03-2009 08:45 PM by jenniferljl | 6 comments »

So, I started my woodworking life with a Black and Decker 13amp $100 table saw last fall. I installed a lam floor with it in October, but frankly…. it’s just not all that one hopes for in a table saw. I’m sure you’ll agree with me on that. So, I started looking on Craig’s List for a table saw with a steel top, decent-sized working surface and a square fence. Missing from that list was SAFETY! So I found an ad for a Craftsman Electronic TS, Model number 113.290...

random #22: JACKPOT

07-02-2009 10:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

In early February, 2009, in rough seas 14 miles off the coast of Sussex, England, Russian cargo ship Sinegorsk lost its load of 1500 tonnes of sawn timber, which washed ashore on the beaches of Kent. The police issued warnings, but scavengers came out in force. Daily Mail has several great shots of people braving the icy surf and a high wall to claim the lumber, which is apparently still the rightful property of the original owner, according to law. Police were powerless to stop the lo...

Shop projects #1: Rolling planer cart

07-20-2009 08:07 PM by GumbyGold | 6 comments »

I’m in the middle of building a very simple planer cart that will get my lunchbox planer up off the floor/bench and onto wheels. It’s a standard cabinet case construction to provide added storage.
