Shelf project complete

02-08-2011 02:54 PM by jbschutz | 0 comments »

Well, the shelves are installed. You can see pictures on my projects page (I couldn’t figure out how to get the pictures in the blog without going to a lot of trouble) The installation was easy, due to pretty careful planning. I had milled the ledger board for each shelf to pretty exact size, so it was just a matter of locating the studs, screwing the ledger strip to the wall, and slipping the shelf cavity over the ledger. A couple of screws through the top to secure it in place ...

Making the garage a shop #5: New tools to make room for old tools

02-27-2011 06:13 AM by Shawn K. | 4 comments »

I wrote about a few of the things I’d picked up last week, the largest being a utility trailer to help haul things as the process of turning the garage into a shop gets underway. I plan on hauling drywall, plywood, lumber, insulation, all that good stuff. After rewiring the trailer, getting it plated, and stripping of the useless sidewall I was able to mount some d-rings and use the trailer for the first of many hauling jobs. My new table saw finally came home today. After four ...

Sweet little MsDebbie (Hammer) blog

03-10-2011 11:49 AM by mafe | 18 comments »

Sweet little MsDebbie – (Hammer)re-handle and then again… It sounds like an old classic ‘Sweet little MsDebbie’, and in a way it is. Few days ago I was having an off day, so as so often I looked at LJ and ended in the midst of an argument there, so I followed the old lesson to count to a million or so before you reply (some people can learn from this, I’m one). So off to the workshop, since I was not so fine I needed a small thing, something that could be done quick and cle...

Mounting a Vega Utility 26 fence to a Bosch PTS 10 table saw

03-22-2011 03:55 PM by Kellence | 3 comments »

I live in France and a few years ago purchased a 10 inch Bosch PTS 10 table saw. The PTS 10 is a scaled down version of the Bosch 4000 sold in the US. The PTS 10 is a good saw. It has enough power at 220 volts (1400 Watts) and the blade is very precisely square to the miter slots. Here is a picture of it when I bought it. It has a sliding table to the left of the blade and a slide-out out feed table notched to accept the sliding table. Further, there is a slide-out support on the ...

Discovering Wood #4: Redbud #2

04-04-2011 03:11 AM by DocT | 2 comments »

The redbud may indeed be the poster child for Discovering Wood. It is one of those woods that you have to kind of “luck into”. You can’t go to the average lumber supplier and buy 110 board feet. Even small owner-operated mills are rarely going to have Redbud lumber in any quantity, BUT it is a perfect example of the domestic exotics that we can harvest and mill in our own shops. I “happened upon” a large redbud trunk early last summer when a storm decimated the over 100-year-old tree s...

Tool Chest #2: The Frame and Trim

05-01-2011 10:25 PM by dakremer | 10 comments »

Well i got a lot done on it today. I got the frame completely glued up and square (or as square as I could get it), and started working on the trim. The chest is made of AC (pine) plywood, and the trim will be oak. Tomorrow hopefully I’ll get through the trim, and then on to the drawers. I’m kind of intimidated by the drawers – have never done them before. You can see in the last picture the look i’m going for. Pine chest, oak trim, pine drawers, oak handles. Th...

52 Weeks #22: Working on my first cutting board.

06-06-2011 03:09 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So one of the things I like about this hobby is there is always something new to try and for a person that has a hard time with doing the same thing constantly that is a good thing. The problem with that is there is always something new and I have not yet found one thing to focus one, I am not sure if that is a good thing or not. But until I figure it out I am pretty happy trying as much as I can. That being said I have decided to tackle a cutting board. My first one is to be for a gift a...

Router table for my Unisaw #3: Pretty much done except a few finishing items

07-20-2011 02:38 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Despite nagging back pain all week, I was able to complete my router table. Vicodin and Methocarbamol are wonderful things. I digress. . . . I routed recesses in the corners to allow mounting bolts to go in, and this took a while because the top is 2 1/4” thick. I needed several passes to get the depth I needed. I also routed out a couple of places just to lighten the thing up a bit. Turns out I could have routed out much more material than I did. Oh well. I put 2×...
