Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #18: Sled mostly Done, Fence Calibrated, Dado Set in action......busy shop weekend.

03-01-2010 03:48 AM by Jim Bertelson | 14 comments »

Yesterday and today I got the little front fence installed, the push handle-blade bury block assembly constructed and installed, and the fence calibrated. I am now ready to use it to make my quick and dirty temporary router table modifications, and then make the miter arms. Need the router table fixed to do that. First a couple of pictures, to make the explanation easier…....... ..........sled from the back…...... ........sled from the front, the operating position...

"Tools, tools, tools! Send a man on a shopping trip."

05-04-2013 11:38 PM by JCMeyersIV | 6 comments »

$10000. Thats what i had saved up when i lost my job. That $10k was SUPPOSED to go to a down payment on a house. But when your girl of three years runs out on you to have a fling with some guy in the air force, and you get canned from your well paying, full benefits job… Things get a little tough. Jobs around here arent easy to come by. And with the economic state we’re in now its a lot worse. When i was going through all this i was woodworking to pass the time and keep busy. It w...

Hand Screw Clamp

02-14-2016 01:58 PM by yuridichesky | 10 comments »

I’d like to share one of my latest shop additions: hand screw clamp. The idea of the build was stolen from John Heisz, have a look at how he built it in details. There are couple of things that I did differently, but in general it’s the same. The wood used for this project is larch (as I still had larch board left from previous project). The screw was made from M12 threaded rod (about 1/2”). Jaws length is 12”, opening is 8”. I have to admit that ...

Pair of mantels

12-06-2010 05:12 PM by Drew | 6 comments »

Here are a pair of mantels I recently built.I was asked to make them the “same style as your doors…....... but cheap”. Not a style I would usually make, but I was VERY limited in the width, thanks to the framers. I used a locking miter bit to make the legs. Then I made all the details with a stick-&-cope set. Here is leg ready for install. Legs laid out with the shelf and frieze. Start of the install. Finished install. Ready f...

1st project - Workbench #1: Day 1

12-28-2009 05:50 AM by MikeOB | 5 comments »

I’m using the design from Wood Magazine Nov. 2009 as a guide. I found a solid core door for $5.00 on craigslist months ago that will be my bench top. Went to Menards to get the majority of my wood and some of the screws, casters, etc. The rest I will get from Ace when I need them. Got to use my new/used table saw. Put my new blade and zero clearance insert in it and cleaned up the table. Used my basic miter saw which isn’t big enough to cut some pieces in half. That is wh...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #2: Well okay, not exactly FINE woodworking... Painted Trellis for Joseph's Coat rose bush.

04-02-2010 04:48 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

This is a project in progress actually. A very simple project in progress. The idea is simple. Build a simple 4’x8’ frame from PT stock that I can in turn attach a 4’x8’ trellis to. The entire assembly is to be painted to match the house, and attached to the side yard fence to give something for a newly planted Josephs Coat rose bush to climb. The trellis is painted in the creamy beige trim color of the house, and the frame (pending build) will be painted the burnt ...

Legacy Project: The Dundas Rocking Chair #1: The Backstory plus Gluing Up Backslats

11-24-2012 07:24 PM by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

He promised his grandchildren, now young adults, a rocking chair. This was to be a delightful part of his retirement. He built three, all from the same plan and then, sadly, he died. His widow commissioned me to build the fourth. She still had all the templates and plans and the build narrative, plus more of the same hard rock maple he had used before. I opted to cut and mill two sets of parts, looking to build another in the near future, plus allowing me a little comfortable fallbac...
