The making of a woodshop #4: Walls get sheathing and rafters

03-05-2010 01:30 AM by JimNEB | 5 comments »

The weather’s cleared up a bit and the boys got back to work. The walls got some OSB and they made the 10 rafters in the shop and installed them today. I can almost smell the sweet smell of sawdust in the air. Now if all the mud around would just dry up. I’m thinking about putting one or more of the tube skylights in, has anyone else put those in a shop and how did you like them?

Some guy gave me that years ago, said it was too heavy and didn’t reverse… I’ve used it ever since… It’s powerful an...

My Father's Workbench Gets a New Home

04-08-2010 03:05 PM by ~Julie~ | 11 comments »

My father was always very supportive of whatever I did. He was always amazed to see things I had made and liked to tell people about his daughter the woodworker. His workbench sat in the basement of the home my mother still lives in for many, many years. While he wasn’t a woodworker, he sure did tinker a lot with appliances, household things, toys and cars. He used the bench as a place to glue, solder and fix many different items. Since my mother had no need for the bench, she ...

Ridgid TS3650 #4: Assembled It

07-15-2010 02:44 PM by Carreiro | 1 comment »

Well, it’s finally assembled. It didn’t take quite as long as six hours like some forums were claiming. Aligning the blade to the mitre slot was not difficult at all, especially with the use of callipers. Setting the blade perpendicular to the table was a cinch as well with my digital angle gauge from Mastercraft. The Accufence took a couple of days to get here, but it to was simple enough to put on and tune.I didn’t have too much to complain about during the assembly process. As long as you ...
