Office #10: Dimensional Furniture 7

01-11-2014 10:10 PM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

The Work Table is fully assembled and ready for finishing. For the past few months I have found it nice to have a work table in the office for doing some small projects or for packing items for shipping. I have been using a card table. My new Work Table will now take its place by tomorrow night. I will be staining it tonight or tomorrow morning. It is still too cold outside to do much and the garage is not much better so I have to see what I can do about putting a poly over the...

Adventures in Working Wood #2: Updates 'n stuff

01-27-2014 05:30 PM by NinjaAssassin | 5 comments »

It’s been a pretty good while since I’ve posted anything to LJ’s so I thought an update was in order… Well, let’s get it out there right now. I haven’t been in the shop since just before Christmas. Between the holidays, visiting family, hunting, and general responsibilities, I just haven’t had time to get to the shop. Prior to my hiatus, I’d cleaned and organized my shop a bit so I could move around and find things easier. I had finish...

Air Cleaner Design

02-13-2014 04:56 AM by BuyoMasilla | 5 comments »

Greetings Ladies and Gents, I’ll try to avoid my bad habit of making a short story long as I want to be respectful of your time, want to capture your interest and hope to get your input.My step son hooked me up with a furnace “squirrel cage” from some replacement job he did. The unit is very close to 17”X17”X17” again. The motor is not belt driven, and it is a 1/3 hp Lennox that can go some 17 hundred RPM, I think I read on the label. Not sure how that translates to CFM but I suspect it wil...

From garage to workshop #2: Planning and cleaning

03-01-2014 08:22 AM by JSOvens | 3 comments »

Well, here it is, a general idea of what I hope to do with my workshop space: For clarity, I left the walls invisible, although their outlines are still there. There are a few constants with the arrangement. The rear wall is reserved for household storage, this is not really optional, and the location of the deep freezer is pretty much set as well, since their really isn’t a better place for it. Other than that, I left the workbenches and table saw about where they are now, since...

Cookbook Shelf Units #6: Still more dowel holes, and a dry fit.

06-09-2014 03:02 AM by Greg Guarino | 0 comments »

I have worked out the math; this project has 448 dowel holes. Here are just a few: These should be the last set; the ones that will fasten the top and bottom rails to the stiles on each face of the units. In the photo below, two stiles are clamped together, “outside” faces facing out. Again I used the beadlock jig, and again used the edge of the black insert for registration. The “mending plate” that is spring-clamped to the work was used to provide an edge to b...

Homecraft table saw

08-15-2014 09:49 PM by drnic | 2 comments »

I just purchased a Homecraft 8” table saw (circa 1955 Model 34-500 I believe) for $50…runs great, has a newer 1 HP motor, but has a wobbly arbor. If the local tools repair shop cannot fix it with replacement bearings, is there a source for a new arbor?
