Cedar Bar Build

03-27-2013 07:58 AM by csamson | 7 comments »

This is my first woodworking project. Learned a lot on the forum so far and am to a point where I need some advice. I’m a big DIY guy and a home brewer. I’ve decided to build a bar that will hold a chest freezer underneath which will hold about 8 kegs of my home brew. I purchased 2 live edge cedar slabs about 8’ long that will be book matched for the bar top, the draft/tap tower will be made from a hollowed out cedar log, and the siding is going to be done with book matched ...

Tool thoughts #47: Stop the Bus I want to get off!

04-27-2013 02:46 PM by NedB | 14 comments »

I started a new management job yesterday, and that of course is exciting! I will be managing a ‘fleet’ of contractors who deliver pharmaceuticals in and around central NY. This is all well and good, but I’m still a week away from leaving my bus driver’s job. I put in my notice for next friday, and this morning I’m wishing it was already Friday. I want to be out of there for two reasons, the new job has a great amount of flexibility in the hours I will be working...

Great Grandpa's tools #2: Tool Chests frozen in time

05-14-2013 08:22 PM by fumehappy | 7 comments »

I’d like to share these with everyone. I was able to snap some quick pictures today of my great grandfather’s tool chests. Both of these haven’t been touched much in the 50 years since he died, if it all. Judging by the layer of dust on the one with the two saws in the lid, i’d go with “not at all”. He sharpened handsaws in his older age. When he was younger, during the 20’s I believe, he worked at a shipyard in the Hudson Valley and as a house b...

A few weeks ago I traveled back east for Memorial Day and to bring home some of my Dad’s things from his old shop. His cabinet bench is a real treasure to me and its nice to have it here in my shop now. What are your prized treasures that have been handed down from that special person who started you on the woodworking path?

Tool Making #2: Does anyone know the thickness and lenght of a E C STEARNS Hollow Auger Bit?

10-05-2013 04:54 AM by WayneC | 13 comments »

I’m looking to make a replacement blade for a hollow auger. I know the blade is one inch wide. I do not know thickness or length as the auger has not arrived yet. If anyone has one of these hollow augers, could they post a photo of the blade? Also, I would be interested to know if anyone knows of a source for these blades. I am assuming one will have to be made but it does not hurt to ask. Example of what the blade looks like.

Norm Abram Router Table #2: Finishing Up

10-30-2013 04:44 PM by Litrenta | 4 comments »

Well it’s been quite a while since I wrote an entry for this but I figured I would share the finished product. I hadn’t needed to use my router throughout the summer on most of the projects I was working on so it basically sat as a cabinet with a top that housed my miter saw. When I built my tapering jig though it came down to me needing to finish this up so that it could be put to good use. I positioned the router plate exactly where I needed it and then cut some pieces of MDF...
