Episode 40 tablesaw setup part 1

09-03-2009 12:25 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at

Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

On the Move.... #1: Not Yet.....

09-02-2009 08:59 PM by 1978 | 3 comments »

Well, I had it all set up. Last Monday my wife and two kids were going to be in school and I would have the house to myself from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Then life happened. My four year old daughter started running a fever. 101 degrees to be exact. So we relaxed all day watched a couple of movies. She is feeling better now and returned to school today. So, Friday is the big day (again) I am moving the workshop from the 10’ x 12’ shed out back to the garage. My wife will be ...

Shaker Media Cabinet #1: Shaker Media Cabinet #1

09-02-2009 06:44 PM by skeeter | 4 comments »

My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing

Things I Learned Today in the Shop #2: Spanish Cedar

09-02-2009 06:17 AM by thiel | 4 comments »

1) Spanish cedar isn’t Spanish. 2) Spanish cedar isn’t cedar. 3) I should have listened when my hardwood purveyor told me to wear a dust mask all day because Spanish Cedar TASTES HORRIBLE! It lingers on your lips for days! Yuck!

FWW Workbench under way #3.

09-02-2009 06:07 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Okay it’s late, and I am dripping sweat, so forget the pics tonight… But there has been more progress… My shop time, like always was very limited tonight, but I did get a great deal done. First things first, cleaned up glue drips I missed last night. What a pain! It is MUCH better to get these before they become giant globs on your work piece! Next order of business is to break out the flush trimming bit from the wall mounted bit set. New discovery, rocket scientist...

As you all recall, We have been granted the use of the Lexington Woodworker’s Guild for our LJ Picnic Event. I still would like to present them with something in appreciation of the gesture – but am not sure what – any ideas? I would also like to thank Rockler for stepping up and sponsoring us with some goodies that will be raffled between the LJ attendees. Thank you Rockler! This really presents the same great customer service, and positive experience I’ve b...

An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects #5: Desk Update - Weekend 2

09-02-2009 02:45 AM by RobH | 2 comments »

Hey all, Once again, no pictures but a lot of progress. This was a long weekend for me since my parents have been visiting. I made the best of it in the shop too. From Friday until today, I finished up building the base pieces and sanding them. I applied two coats of shellac yesterday to seal up the pine, and today I got the first coat of polyurethane on the base pieces. With another long weekend coming up, I hope to get a lot more done. I am hoping to get the second and final coat...

Not sure how many out there would be interested in making a Native American Flute, and if I understood how to work this site, I would be happy to guide you in how to make one.
