Entertainment Center #1: Start up

07-24-2012 05:35 PM by woodsyguy81 | 0 comments »

So we got a nice new 37” LCD TV back in December (yes we finally stepped into the 21st century) and right now have it sitting on an old dresser that my wife found on the side of the road. We tweaked it just a little bit on the outside to use it as an “entertainment center” which meant taking out a drawer and drilling a small hole in the back for the wires and that’s about it. I believe it to be black walnut and it’s decent construction (dovetailed drawers) so w...

The Beginnings of a Workbench

08-22-2012 11:37 AM by nobuckle | 10 comments »

I picked up these pieces of Maple butcher block at my local Habitat for Humanity Restore for $13.91. I plan to use them as the top of my workbench. I want to join them together at the ends to make one long top but I am unsure about how to do it. Any suggestions?

The old time woodshop journals #26: The last blogs forgotten

09-24-2012 07:26 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hey everyone, well I guess I was just plain not paying attention when posting my last blog explaining my rustic sassafras hiking stick and cherry spoon work. I totally forgot to add some pics in of these…lol. These would greatly add to the experience of my past Saturdays wood working session. So here they are! Pic 1: Some new fresh cherry ready for some spoon making! Pic 2: Roughed out blank ready for greater detail. Finished project can be found here: http://lumberjocks...

Roubo Bench #1: Barn Wood Gold

12-19-2012 05:34 AM by Tesla77 | 7 comments »

Well underway with the Roubo bench build that will vault my woodworking endeavors into the next chapter of my life. It has been quite a journey so far and I am only a few months into it. Every Wednesday for about 2 hours or more, I pour my soul into this beast. With the help of a fellow woodworker, I am learning a lot and loving every minute of it. It’s a complete rush and I am fully addicted to the art. Any who, where was I. Okay, so the top slabs are glued and ready for surfacin...

Newfangled Workbench #2: Continued progress

01-30-2013 09:33 PM by Charlzecheeze | 7 comments »

I’m still plugging away on the NF workbench. Weather here in ON has been cold so, it has moved inside for completion. My biggest hangup so far has been the math for the intersecting pipes. Everything fits in there – but it looks like I may have a hare over 3/4 from the benchtop to the pipe. I got a little carried away and made the well for the long clamps 12.5”. Next bench will probably be smaller, although my drill press fits in there pretty nice.

Workbench #4: Back to the dogs and Wagon

02-12-2013 05:01 PM by cpd011 | 2 comments »

That was one of the more satisfying things I’ve done woodworking. The planing of course. That 5 worked like a dream. I instantly ebayed an old stanley for 30 bucks. I can’t wait until ot shows up. The wagon vise rides in to 3/4 inch dadoes that I put in before glueing up the top. Oak runners are screwed to the sides of the chop. I used a jorgensen 12” veneer press screw that cost $20. With a little wax on the runners, it slides like..something very slippery. The caps I pu...
