Popular Woodworking Magazine (who have the rights?) is that really ok?

Popular Woodworking Magazinebe careful with readers contributions, ‘Tricks of the trade’. Hi LJ’s. I have an experience I want to share with you; unfortunately I can’t say it was a good one, but not the end of the world either… All of you, who know me here on LJ, probably know I’m not a complaining kind of person. Some months ago I was contacted by Popular Woodworking Magazine (PWM), they asked if they could bring one of my posts here on LJ in the magazi...

finally my new shop #2: starting to take shape!

02-28-2011 07:47 PM by wilterbeast | 1 comment »

There comes a time in a persons life when you decide if your going to be a cup half full kinda person or a cup half empty kinda person. Before my divorce my shop set on my 2.5 acre place and was in my barn. I had 2 big windows and in the evening i could watch the deer come out to feed in the field behind my house. My fishing gear sat in the corner of my shop and when the mood struck i could drop everything and head to the nieghbors pond and catch some of the biggest blue gill and bass you ca...

8x12 Shed Spring 2011 #2: Day 2 wall framing begins

03-25-2011 12:19 AM by JonH | 0 comments »

On day 2, we got into laying out the walls. We went with 2 foot centers on this shed. Last year we did a shed that was 16” on center, framed just like a house and the thing ended up being referred to as an above ground bomb shelter. It was too expensive and was overkill. We also did not utilize a double top plate on top of the walls and we did not use a full header also. I must remind myself this is a simple shed, not a house! We got most of the way with the walls today, tomorrow ...

Dovetailed Hand Tool Cabinet #3: Flow with the go

05-03-2011 04:35 AM by JasonD | 5 comments »

While the pieces for the back were clamped / glued up, I spent some time practicing hand cut through dovetails for my next project. I had cut some where between 6 – 12 single tail practice dovetails off an on over the past 6 months or so. I’d never tried cutting an actual “set”; as in more than one tail and at least 3 pins (counting 2 half pins). Well after cutting a practice set, I decided that the only way I was ever going to get any good at them was to use them m...

Workshop additions, modifications, adaptations and installations #1: Things that have drawers.

07-07-2011 07:10 PM by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

The easy cheap drawer has a 1/4” hardboard bottom that serves also as the slide, traveling in a dado, usually in MDF. Plenty of side mount, full extension hardware is in place as well. The green metal cabinet with the shallow drawers was a school district castoff, designed to hold drafting paper. Under the outfeed table:
