002: a rolling base for my planer #1: general assembly

05-20-2009 02:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

My Craftsman 13” planer is a real beast to move around in the shop. It’s very heavy, and really bulky. As such, it’s just always either in the way when I don’t need it, or really hard to get to when I do, having collected many items from other projects on and around it since its previous use. After setting up to use it, I’m often too tired to. I’ve even changed some projects to avoid planing altogether, just because I don’t want to move a few dozen th...

Red Barn Woodworking new-ish YouTube Channel #1: Introduction to My Channel

12-31-2015 07:30 PM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

Hello everyone,I have recently been encouraged to join and participate in this great community since I have been making videos for about 6 months now. I’m always looking for new quality channels to subscribe to, so I figured I would introduce myself to the LumberJocks crew. Maybe I have some material that would be of interest to you.I started my YouTube journey when I found the channels for Matthias Wandel and Jimmy Diresta. Now I am making my own material and having a blast doing it...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #6: Construction Delay - Shop Upgrade and Outside activities.

06-07-2009 07:06 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

It has been a few days since I have been able to work on the cabinets. I did some shopping for drawer material and in the process found some wood that will look like mahogany when stained and did not cost an arm and a leg. I am going to use it for the upper face frame as well as the false fronts for the drawers. Since I am an ex-truck driver and live in a rural area I have a friend that farms and about this time of year I help out hauling his grain to the elevator so that has started and I...

New Shop - from the ground , up. #15: Lighting recall

01-07-2016 09:36 PM by curliejones | 0 comments »

Just when I was about to get an early start this morning——I discovered that there’s a recall on several models of fluorescent fixtures made for Cooper Lighting. I bought seven of one particular model for use in the shop so I took the time to file for replacement. There are quite a few different models at risk for fire hazard, some are residential and some are typical shop lights, so if you’ve bought fluorescent fixtures by Cooper Lighting, an Eaton Company, do your hom...

Starting a New Challenge

06-29-2009 10:35 PM by sricks | 11 comments »

I am starting a new endeavor to attempt to get out in the shop and do some woodworking. You can read all about it at my blog Project Artistry 12 in 12 . Basically it comes down to this, I am going to attempt to do 12 woodworking projects in 12 months, so I am calling it my 12 in 12 Challenge. I could really use your support(no, not money, but…oh never mind) and encouragement to keep it and me going. My plan is to chronicle what I am doing on the blog with pictures and video at least once...

Lumber Rack

01-13-2016 05:29 PM by Lee | 2 comments »

I finally got around to building a new lumber rack, after looking at several designs, I finally decided to go with the stud and shelf support style. Although some people use 2×4’s for the supports, I used plywood on both sides of the stud glued and screwed. I got the frame up and one row of supports then ran out of time, I tapered the supports from 3 3/4” to 2” and there 20” long. I used a taper jig I built from plans I got at woodsmith shop, it works VERY well by...

My Workbench #3: Getting Close to Being Done

08-24-2009 03:12 PM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

If I never have to cut MDF again, it will be too soon… Unfortunately I’m going to have to trim the edges of the MDF with my router, since I decided to be sloppy and clean it up that way rather than try to make perfect cuts with my circular saw (not likely). At least all the sheets are cut, so I’ll probably take these outside when I’m trimming so I don’t spend another hour vacuuming my garage. Overall, things are getting close to wrapping up, for the primary ...
