As The Shop Turns #5: Revised Dust Collection Question

05-30-2013 04:24 PM by Natalie | 3 comments »

Okay, so my question is not so much about electricity but about suction. Will 2.5hp provide enough suction to clear the dust from my shop? I will have 8 drops and the lengths of ducting no longer than 20 ft. I will rarely be running more than one tool at a time. Thanks

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #29: Enjoying the simple things.........

11-17-2010 08:20 AM by Jim Bertelson | 24 comments »

This is not everybody’s simple thing, but it is mine. Some like the sound of the card scraper or tuning up a plane. I think I might come from another planet or something, I really get pleasure in strange simple things. Today, I had 30 minutes to spend in the shop, before I went to the office.The morning was already busy…, seeing patients in the hospital, etc. So I did glueups on some partially completed fixtures for my project table, a couple of one foot long fen...

Shop Maintenance and Mayhem

08-06-2012 05:17 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 2 comments »

I’ve been taking it easy lately due to my back, the pain medication makes me feel like I’m drunk and I’m pretty sure that is not a good thing when trying to use anything in the wood shop. My Dad helped me finish my lumber rack when he visited, who knows how long that would have taken if he hadn’t of helped me. A few days after my Dad visited my youngest sister stayed with me (she was staying with some cousins up in St. Augustine and I picked her up and had her at my ho...

current projects #2: router table

07-09-2012 03:33 PM by pdegreyt | 4 comments »

this is very basic, simple router table I am working on, I wanted something that would fit my needs without taking too much time up but still leaving room for improvement so I went with this design loosely based on a workbench I saw on woodworking for mere mortals. I have replaced the top since it wasn’t wide enough. I am thinking of getting a router table insert plate, when I have the money for one, for right now it works great.

The tiny shop chronicles: #2: What’s the shop for?

08-19-2011 07:02 PM by SnowFrog | 0 comments »

In this second installment of the chronicle, I wanted to validate my priorities with you guys. But that will have to wait for the next chronicle because before I go there, I’d need to add some information which came out of a questions asked in my first blog, “what do I intend to do in that shop”. I must admit it is a big consideration which impacts the whole shop layout. Well there is no simple answer to this question. The true answer is I do ”what must be done” as much of my work is based...

Extremely Average #113: Is it A Good Deal?

04-25-2010 03:36 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

I awoke this morning and ate a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. As I sat and ate, nom nom nom, I thought about the rest of the day. This day was a ‘blank sheet’ and I had some ‘writer’s block’. I intended to work on my jig a bit, so I made a mental note on the blank page in my mind. As I stared at the sole objective it occurred to me that I needed another set of Rockler cam clamps, or as I like to call them, clampy thingies. A trip to ACME was added to ...

My First Workbench #11: Day 11: Mortises, Tenons, Sharpening, oh my!

08-23-2012 01:42 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Please click here for the version with pictures. After a few friendly reminders, I realize that it is indeed time to take a break and sharpen my chisels before I continue. I want to make sure the mortises are as sharp and clean as I can make them to ensure a good fit with the tenons. To do that, I need to get rid of the (gasp) factory edge that has so far lived on the tip of my chisels. To do that I decided to make a little sharpening station, based off of something I saw in Dan’...
