Craft Table #1: Intial build of Craft Table or Workbench

01-03-2010 10:32 PM by cmckerliesr | 1 comment »

My wife has a craft room and she just never seems to have enough room or work surface. I had a scrap piece of 3/4 MDF that was 48 inches by 37 inches. So, I went to Lowes and bought some 2 by 4s and a half sheet of particle board. Total cost minus the MDF, was about $35. I made it with a 1 inch overhang all the way around. Yes I realize that all this, the 1 inch over hang, and even the size is a little odd. But the size of the room and the MDF dictated the size, and wanting to give as much...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #6: Adding Upper Storage Cabinets or Walls

01-03-2010 10:18 PM by cmckerliesr | 2 comments »

OK!After my last blog entry, I had a lot of good input on what to do to possibly add some sort of wall covering and to be able to hang upper cabinets. I had made a few comments later on saying what I may try. What is going on now, is first of course I can not hold anything to the inside of the can, while I drive a screw from the out side. So, I have not got this done yet. So I will just tell you what will happen, once I get my son or someone to come help me out. I am going to split a co...

Drill press table

01-03-2010 09:21 PM by Stevinmarin | 16 comments »

I really don’t know why most drill presses come with those little round tables. A few years ago I found a design for a great drill press table with a proper sliding fence. It’s really easy to make, and you really need one. If you want to make this design even simpler, leave out the replacible inserts feature. Steve

Finaly in the gas chamber.

01-03-2010 07:11 PM by Partridge | 3 comments »

Well the in-table went in the fuming tent last night. I did some samples (4) before new years. Varied the time in the chamber from 4 to 24 hours and finished with 2 wipe on coats of 50/50 tar and mineral spirits And 2 coats amber shellac finished with wax The next one has got to go faster. In the end it is done well and it should last a long time. I think my next tool is going to be a shop cammera.
