Evolution of a Shop #43: Drill press cart part 1

04-14-2015 03:03 PM by Cory | 7 comments »

I wanted to build a new cart that took better advantage of the space underneath my benchtop drill press. The one I had been using was a scavenged find. It looks like there are a 5 drawers, but it’s actually 3. They’re made from 3/4” material, they’re narrow and deep, and don’t have full extension slides, so they don’t function well for small parts. The one I built is a little lower, wider, and has full extension slides so I can get to everything in the...

Lumber Storage/Shop improvements #2: Continuing on with the lumber storage

04-18-2015 01:28 AM by McDade | 2 comments »

Wow that first post got a little wordy (I should really learn to take more/better pictures) well moving right along. So we have the upper shelf section done now with the design I am going for I want to tuck my vertical storage underneath it and behind my movable sheet goods cart. Depth here is going to be an issue (I have bid shop envy) as we still only have 2’ to work with so lets consider what kind of space that cart will take up. I have decided the base of my cart will be a 2...

Pergola #6: The best laid plans...

04-26-2015 09:40 PM by Bermuda_Les | 6 comments »

I’d love to be able to say that all went well in this weekends pergola work, but sadly that’s not the case. The jig performed as expected, and dare I say was doing a grand job until all of a sudden something went horribly wrong. The wood was just to much for the equipment. Either the 3” pattern bit (1/2”) bent or I’ve forever damaged the shaft of my $300 – $400 Bosch router, I’m hoping it’s the bit. But it suddenly started to vibrate uncon...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #5: Table, Buffet Tops

05-04-2015 03:19 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 6 comments »

Bought 12’ 2×6s at the local lumber yard, brought them into the shop and cut them into even 6’ lengths via RAS, … ensuring every end was from the saw, nice and square. Jointed the seven boards needed for the table using the #8 and a square, a process discussed in detail in the previous installment. 20/20 hindsight, but I should have addressed the radius corners of the 2×4s by ripping them before jointing, but I didn’t do that until the second (buffet) build. Here’s the...

Pergola #8: A slight miscalculation...

05-11-2015 02:56 PM by Bermuda_Les | 0 comments »

Well this was the weekend that the pergola was to be completed. But the slight miscalculation was that I forgot it was “Mother’s Day” this weekend. And my presence at the “Mother’s Day” lunch was not to be missed. As many of you may know, if the mamma duck ain’t happy, ain’t NOBODY happy. So had to spend about 4 hours on “other than pergola” work. Anyway, left son Dave to continue on in my absence, but as he was working alone...

What To Do With This Board? #5: Groov'n!

05-14-2015 10:29 PM by Mean_Dean | 4 comments »

Hey Guys! Today I cut the grooves in the box sides for the top and the bottom. I debated whether to cut the grooves at the router table with a 1/4” straight bit, or on the tablesaw with a full kerf rip blade. I decided it would be quicker and easier to cut them on the tablesaw. Here are the box sides from yesterday: I used a Freud full-kerf FTG rip blade to cut the grooves. The FTG feature gives the grooves a nice flat bottom, instead of the sawtooth pattern of my combinati...

Hand Tool Cabinet - Start To Finish #2: Rehabbing Craftsman Block Plane for future dovetail work

05-18-2015 03:18 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

One of the requirements for dovetailing, is to use a smoother plane or block plane to knock down the pins (or tails… unsure!). So I went to work on rehabbing a craftsman block plane I pick up recently. Mind you, I did not do a restoration like Doug did in his restoration project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48606 . One day, yes :) But for now, just need a 100% operational block plane for this hand tool cabinet. This would be the first rehab plane I’ve ever done. I am s...

What To Do With This Board? #12: Top to Bottom Review

05-24-2015 11:22 PM by Mean_Dean | 0 comments »

Hey Guys! Sorry to have gotten off schedule, but I helped move a friend on Friday, and was too tired and sore to work on the box yesterday. Left the house at 9am, didn’t get back home until Midnight…...... But today’s a new day, and there’s progress to report! First I stained the lid. Gave it three coats of Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene stain formula. Next, I flush trimmed the splines on the box carcase. I used the flush-trim saw from a previous...
