Misc. Shop Stuff #7: (SW) Dumb Luck

07-07-2012 04:34 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 15 comments »

Went to my Dad’s shop to see if he had casters I was looking for (no), when in a drawer caught my attention. Looked like something I scanned on ebay, so I flipped it over. Ah! Have to find a most worthy cause for the pair! Thanks for looking.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #37: Exploring Options ????

07-21-2012 01:45 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been exploring new options for my scrollsaw. New items I can make or new areas I can get involved in. Is this a bad thing or not. The thing I like the best is scrollsaw fretwork. Little tiny cuts and lots of them. I think the thing I like the best is when you are finished customers will ask, ‘how in the world did you make that”? Well after all the cutting and glueing is done it was simple, right?. Now I sure that this will remain as the majority of my work. Lately I h...

this is a side job i have been working on and the owners wanted this old victorian piece some how conected. the veneer on the sides was terrible so i made these panels to fit it. the color doesnt match but thats the color they wanted for the kitchen. my problem here was attaching to adobe bricks, i used tech screws and they worked good but the walls were very wavy and out of plumb.

Workshop #1: Setup for the workshop at the new house

08-19-2012 04:44 PM by Jacob Deis | 0 comments »

It’s been a crazy couple of months after buying our first home but it’s been an amazing ride. Now that things have calmed down and everything is starting to find their places, its time for me to find myself getting the new shop setup. It’s a modest 2 car garage with a bonus storage closet. I do have to share the space with the lawnmower and bikes for now but future plans call for a separate storage shed. I’ve been working in SketchUp to lay everything out and this i...

Well my Friends I have been at if for some time now and felt it was time to get busy I worked on the legs first after a critical error the leg assembly had to be broken down which was a big job and then the legs were taken back one step the outer legs were re worked and the bench was put together for a test fit and to let the tops lye flat for a while to get them as flat as can be. First we made the leg assembly this is a through mortice that is back cut and wedged together for a tight fit...

New shop tool

10-26-2012 03:02 AM by brevort | 6 comments »

My Craigslist find….. I have been thinking about getting a 6” Jointer for sometime now. My little 1950’s 4” Craftsman just is not big enough to do the job at times. I didn’t think a new jointer would be in my budget this year…. but maybe I could get a good used one. So I started looking on Craigslist and I found this Central machine 6” jointer for $150.00. I called the guy and he said that he bought it new with the intention of getting into wood worki...

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #2: Starting with the Mirror

11-12-2012 04:44 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

I decided it was too confusing trying to build the bench and the mirror at the same time, so I’m making the mirror first, because it’s simpler. I’ll have less to think about if I get it out of the way. So Step 0: Stop. Go re-sharpen all your tools. This took about a day or so. Longer than normal because I was trying to grind a camber on most of the irons and I’m not very swift at it yet. Step 1: Cut all parts to rough width and rough length. Step 2: Cut al...
