Storage #1: From years of just throwing em down, to...

03-22-2011 06:40 PM by SteveW | 7 comments »

For the past 15 – 20 years, I’ve been just throwing my excess hardware into various containers, buckets, and wherever, since I didn’t have a plan to properly separate the screws, nuts bolts and washers from each other.Well, I figured its now or never, so I decided to play catch up.After perusing Lumberjocks for various container types, I decided on PLANO tackle boxes, because they were cheap and configurable inside.This is going to take some time, as I probably have 8 –...

Shop Update #13: Cleaning and organizing...

06-06-2011 04:30 AM by TheKingInYellow | 1 comment »

Sorry, no picture this week. I moved a ton of things into the shed this weekend, tossed a lot of garbage, organized other things and generally speaking cleaned up the place. I want to wait until that is fully complete before I post a picture though. Might as well make my before/after pictures as dramatic as possible, right? I’ve been on the hunt for the new table saw for a while now, and I have to say that Winnipeg is an awful market for used equipment. Everything is low quality,...

Workbench Build #10: Lots of holes drilled.....

06-20-2011 04:21 AM by JL7 | 8 comments »

So it was hole drilling day today (and yesterday too I guess….) Did I mention that I decided to go with the Veritas Twin Screw for the end vice? Up to that point, I had less than $100 invested in the bench materials, but had a bit of tax money back so I went for it….:) The end cap (on top) is cross drilled for bench screws at the middles and rear and the vice face is below: Dry fitting the twin screw: Forget to photograph, but I also planed the vice face w...

Moved South ... shop still in Limbo

08-04-2011 05:33 AM by swirt | 17 comments »

So, back in June we packed up our house in upstate NY and moved down to the west coast of Florida. I managed to get my entire shop into one U-box (U-haul’s version of PODS) The ubox is 5’x8’x8’. I am looking forward to switching from a basement shop to a garage shop. However, our current home is temporary until we can get the money out of the sale of our house in NY and find a suitable house down here with at least a 3 car garage (2 cars and a shop). Until we fi...

great grandson in the workshop #1: Why I am not carving spoons

08-16-2011 03:52 AM by Bluepine38 | 5 comments »

My 6 year old great grandson Austin, very quietly asked me if he could use my workshop to make a rockingchair, and he would let me help. I found a plan for a child’s rocker on Fine Woodworking that would workwith a few changes and made a practice model. Austin then came out and took over the workshop. First he carefully drew the outline, then he had to cut it out. Then he carefully sanded, after I took the pictures, I would assist him with the operation of all machinery....

Shop Update #32: New guide tube is on the way from Grizzly.

08-31-2011 04:02 PM by TheKingInYellow | 0 comments »

Got the shipping notice on my new guide tube. I doubt it will be here for the long weekend, but in the meantime I’ll use a clamped piece of MDF or something as an immobile fence so I can get something done. I’ve promised my wife a little stand for her new iPad, and I have some 3/4 black walnut that’s been stickered for a year in the basement that I’ve been wanting to use. I think I will likely make one like this one from Amazon. Simple to make, some routed edges ...

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

Cherry Spoon #1: Sawing the outline

10-31-2011 06:25 AM by tr33surg3on | 1 comment »

I started a wooden spoon as a practice carving project. It’s kind of like a very miniature mandolin back plate, neck and head stock. My coping saw is right near the top of the list for my least favorite tool, but it got the job done with a little help from a keyhole saw to cut the outline from a cherry blank (left over from the knife handles). The design will be very simple for this first one with an eye for actually being usable. It’s only slightly bigger than a large t...
