Reaperwoodworks #7: Footboard bookshelf/storage cabinet...thing

01-24-2016 03:28 AM by Reaperwoodworks | 0 comments »

I’m on a local “shabby” site on Facebook and a gal posted a picture of something she was looking to have built. So I tossed my hat in the ring. Bip bop boop, I was commissioned to build her piece. I sold my furniture repair business almost 2 years ago. I took a year off essentially to put an addition on our house. Feels good to get back into the swing of things running my own business. I’m no where close to being able to support my family on it, but building a new name...

A cabinetmaker's workbench (in pine) #1: Planing and glueup of flitches

10-14-2009 10:42 PM by TravisCorcoran | 2 comments »

Ordered (5) 18′ long 2×12s. Cut them to half length, yielding (10) 9′ long 2×12s. Ripped each into three equal pieces, yielding (30) 9′ 2×4s. Planed the faces of each, reducing thickness to 1 3/8″. Picked 24 good ones, divided into 4 groups of 6. Started gluing up the four flitches (each will be 8 1/4″ wide x 3 1/2″ thick). Each will be allowed to cure for 24 hours, then will be run through the planer. Then the four bench segments will be glued together. for about $100...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1688: Deadlines

01-29-2016 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that I am always working on some sort of  'deadline'.  I know that people think of those who are self-employed as being free to do whatever they choose whenever they wish to do it. While we may find that our schedules are a bit flexible at times, I honestly believe that if we follow the 'take-the-day-to-go-to-the-beach' mentality that so many perceive us to have too often, it is with near certainty that our business will fail. The entrepreneurs that I h...

Antique Hand Planes #1: $50 for five hand planes

02-01-2016 03:12 AM by AnthonyRH | 2 comments »

So the wife wanted a date, and since we are at a somewhat remote location, that involved a 180 mile drive to drop the kids off at her parent’s house (we don’t have a good sitter lined up any closer). I wasn’t too excited about the prospect of putting 400 miles in on a Saturday after being sick with the flu all week, but we were promised a minimum of three kid free hours, which was the most time we’ve had since our youngest was born almost a year ago. We decided to g...

Hints and Tips #21: Cork Feet

02-02-2016 11:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Have you ever had a project the needs little feet to get it off the table, but you only have wine corks? This happened to me recently, so I cut the corks into about 1/2 inch slices with my mini miter box and glued one in each corner of the project. To be sure they were level I rubbed the installed feet on a sheet of course sandpaper fixed to my flat work bench. Instant cork feet.

Shop stuff #35: Improving the Bosch

02-08-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I love my Bosch Glide mitre saw. It is a wonderful piece of machinery. If you have been following along though, you will realize that it does have some short comings. One of them is the dust chute. Here I do a simple job, with a reclaimed inner tube from a wheel barrow, to improve it a bit. It is still not perfect, but it is a lot better. I suppose that having the vacuum or a dust collector hooked up would improve it more, but I do not have the power to the shop yet, so we will have to...
