Revised Edition Woodworker's Guide to SketchUp

05-17-2015 12:00 AM by BobLang | 5 comments »

Five years ago I published “Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” in enhanced PDF format with embedded video. Today I released an updated, revised edition with new images, new videos, and new chapters. The text reflects changes in the SketchUp program and improvements to the way I make models. If you’ve been meaning to learn how to design, plan and trouble-shoot your projects with 3D modeling, this book will get you up and running. Check it out and see a video previe...

Fighting Dust #9: I won this battle, but the war is raging

01-08-2012 08:01 AM by ChunkyC | 0 comments »

I tested the DC tonight after I got everything put back together. I can say that the old girl is back to her self once again. So was the stove pipe mod worth it? Yes. Did I see a huge improvement? No. Would I do it again? Absolutely. This mod is easy to do and the parts were easy to find. I wish I would pay closer attention to how much stuff costs but I don’t so I have no idea how much it cost me. I’d say that it was less than $30??? The efficiency gain by this mod ca...

Chevalet Build #8: Mobility

01-20-2014 09:51 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 1 comment »

The last tweak on the Chevalet was to make it more mobile. I have a small garage shop, and it’s getting a little tight on space. Most of my larger tools are on some sort of mobile base, so I can shift things around. Over on the Chevalet Clubhouse, I posted a comment on making a Chevalet more mobile. Both dbray45 and shipwright were helpful in me finding a good solution to make the Chevalet mobile. It was quick and easy, and reversible if needed. I’ve started to cut...

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...

Unknown Tool

07-23-2010 12:16 AM by FlanelLover | 5 comments »

Hello, I was in another woodworkers shop the other day, and he had these little metal clamps that would clamp onto a metal ruler so you could draw a straight line on a round object. Does anyone know what they are called or where I could get them. Thank You

Capers #7: OR- A Piece of Furniture I Came Across Today

08-01-2016 07:33 AM by Mark Wilson | 12 comments »

So, I’m driving up Hill St., just south of where Hill St. runs into Downtown L.A. (hereinafter, DTLA), when I see this chair, sitting in a parking lot. I’d never noticed this, before. I was out on my daily journies throughout the Southland (L.A. Basin), schlepping people about, in my capacity as an Uber Goober. Every day, regardless of the fact that I’ve driven and walked all over the area, looking at stuff and taking pictures, for decades – growing to love the city an...

Greene & Greene #3: Completion of the Fireplace

09-25-2009 08:58 PM by Sam Yerardi | 3 comments »

I started by building the platform upon which everything else would rest. I chose the height of the deck based on leaving enough room for the pegs and the lines to be seen clearly. I didn’t want to crowd anything. In classical architecture there is what is known as ‘orders’. Many books and theories have been written regarding these, and the structures of these orders can be seen in period furniture as well. Greene & Greene furniture is no different. Basically, pieces are designed ...

The Fourth Dimension

02-21-2013 08:54 AM by mnpete | 5 comments »

OK, so be honest…how many of you knew about this fourth way to measure using your dial calipers? Until Andy Chidwick described it at the Woodworking Show here in Denver I never knew. The instructions that came with my calipers don’t even mention it!
