Deep Water Questions #1: Table saw dilemmas

02-19-2011 06:55 AM by kowtow | 10 comments »

I’m pretty new at this, I worked in a shop last year that had the best of everything right at your fingertips. Festool power tools, a 22” planer, two cabinet saws, three 14” bandsaws, a 24” bandsaw, a 12” jointer. A dust collection system that sucked every ppm of wood dust right out of the shop. When I left, I took my hand tools. And my desire to build a comparable shop, and I moved to Southern Kentucky. Now, I’m getting there. I have a workbench a...

lumboo

02-28-2011 08:48 PM by harbortides2 | 3 comments »

Sorry if this is repetitive but I’m not sure my first posting went through. I’m a middle school teacher involved in developing the inner courtyard at my school into an Asian-inspired garden that will require structures like benches, planters, pergolas and a pagoda. I was hoping to use Cali lumboo for the benches but am hesitant since reading the bad report it got on this site. We want to use sustainable resources like lumboo. Does anyone know of an alternative to lumboo, or has an...

work bench #9: Frame for drawers and panels

03-12-2011 04:41 AM by gpastor | 2 comments »

I like the Shaker feel of this design. With the drawers and cupboard storage. I made my bench just the draws and no cupboard. I have had benches with open area or just a shelf under the top and they always ended up being a catch-all, so a set of drawers was a good alternative and you never have too much storage space that is close at hand.I do not like painting wood but it keep well with the shaker look and I could save some money by buying poplar as the substrate. The poplar panels are 3/8” ...

Shop Notes 100 Ultimate Router Table Step by Step From a Green Horn's POV #1: Shop Notes 100 Ultimate Router Table Step by Step From a Green Horn POV

04-20-2011 02:33 AM by Yupa4242 | 10 comments »

Way back on one of my last visits before my Dad passed away I told him I’d like to make this plan so I’ve decided to do just that. Who know’s how long it will take but thought I would catalog my trials from pre to post work in the blog until i finish and post to the project page. I discovered a fellow on the “Router Forum” web site http://www.routerforums.com/table-mounted-routing/9240-built-my-first-router-table.html that made the Shop Notes 100 Router table...

Dovetailed Hand Tool Cabinet #4: Making the tool holders

05-03-2011 05:20 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

As I got further into the build process, I found myself really starting to fly by the seat of my pants. I really had a lot of fun working on the tool holders. This was the design process: grab the next tool, look at it a bit, pass it from one hand to another, and finally get an idea. For the most part, I liked my first idea and went with it. The one area that I had to revisit and revamp several times was the holders for my joinery saws. I am happy with the set up that I eventually settled ...

Tools were cheap, the man had some nice tools, one of everything. MY PILE of maple $10 per pile. The truckload you see cost me $20. Unfortunatly I wasn’t able to buy any of the Wlanut,Cherry or ash (One can only buy so much.) He had a band saw mill with 16 ft table = $1200. The day was RAINY, chilly. I did b...

Workbench Build #7: First attempt (ever) at hand cut dovetails....

06-08-2011 04:11 AM by JL7 | 6 comments »

Not much of an update here – but I will start by saying…...I have contemplated many ways of building this bench without dovetailing the apron into the end caps…..but of course I WANT this essentail feature so invested part of my tax return into a proper saw, and now I am committed. I picked up the Lie-Nielsen saw and and as most of you know, it is amazing the difference it makes in cut control. Before that…....I cut the dado’s into the end caps and they fit t...
