Homemade router milling machine ready to launch for others to enjoy.

02-08-2013 02:28 AM by Mark55 | 8 comments »

I have posted my machine on here a couple times and kept promising that I was going to get it to the point where I would have plans ready for it. This has turned out to be a very daunting task . At first glance of the machine it does not look too overwhelming. But, when you break it down there are many many parts and details to make this thing work the way it does. Before I go any farther though there is one person on here I want to thank for all the help . I would not have gotten this far wi...

Workshop Planning #2: Planning a subpanel installation

01-05-2017 01:11 PM by joshtp | 8 comments »

My attached garage currently has two duplex receptacles in one corner, and they’re on the same 20A circuit as many other receptacles in the house. Thankfully the 20A lets me get by with a vacuum and table saw at the same time, and the lights are on a separate circuit so the lights won’t dim. However there is no doubt I need to upgrade the electrical, especially as I hope to upgrade to a cabinet saw this year. Here’s how I think power consumption will go assuming I do the u...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #34: Rappin' Roy Underhill?

02-22-2013 11:10 PM by StumpyNubs | 16 comments »

Rockler asked me to make a video, so how could I say no? The idea is to make a short video about what inspires me to woodwork. I like woodworking shows (especially Roy Underhill) so I decided to have some fun with it. Watch the video below- then, if you like it, please vote on the contest's Facebook page.- Enjoy!

Hoosier restoration #1: A Hoosier Cabinet from the 1920' or 1930's needs some restoration.

01-10-2017 03:55 PM by makeBrooklyn | 2 comments »

In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...

Random Thoughts #2: Fine thanks, and how is your day?

03-09-2013 02:19 PM by KelvinGrove | 0 comments »

I need to be out in the shop. This weekend I plan to get through step 5 (of 9) in the pantry/cabinet project. I need to run to the orange place for one more piece of lumber. The one I selected for making the shelf rails had a defect that allowed it to break when ripped to one inch strips. But to tell the truth, my wife is sitting on the couch knitting with Boomer the basset hound at her feet and Leon the cat on her lap, the coffee is good, and for right now I prefer to just sit here and e...

Refinish a Table Top #3: Completed Refinishing this Coffee Table Top

01-18-2017 03:59 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I completed spraying the polyurethane finish on this table. I had a few spots that I scuffed sanded on the lower portion of the table. I applied some of my dye mix to those areas. I made sure the remainder of the table was clean and then sprayed a light coat of finish to the lower portion of this table. I will give this table tonight and most of the morning tomorrow to dry. Once it checks okay I will apply a thin coat of dark brown Briwax and buff that thoroughly. I have already told...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #16: A few hole clamps

01-23-2017 02:06 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I made these in anticipation of someday being tasked to repair cracks in violins. I made them from a, (or a few) Pend-A-flex hanger frames (one is shown above framing the three clamps.) The U-shaped part is threaded on both ends, while the straight bar has a threadable through hole in each end. I simply bent the frames into a C shape as small as possible on my machinists vise and fit either a 1/4 inch bolt or a #10 bolt in an appropriate hole. The smallest of the three I had to flatted th...
