002: a rolling base for my planer #2: flush sanding, a drawer, and a nice big mistake

05-20-2009 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I got the casters on yesterday, cutting some scrap wood board to fit along the edges inside the bottom, and joining them in with pocket hole screws from underneath. Extra sturdy now, and the wheels are all in plane with each other. I wasn’t sure how tall they were, and it was critical, as I was designing this to be as high as possible, while still fitting comfortably under my work table. I have Rockler’s digital height gauge, and it showed me they were all exactly 2.5” (actu...

Starting Woodworking. #3: My trip to Lowes

05-20-2009 03:40 AM by Haydar | 8 comments »

In my first post i mentioned that I couldn’t find any dimensional lumber at my local big box stores. Well now that I have learned a little bit it was easy to find the hardwood section. I could see that they had Red Oak, Poplar, and something called whitewood? that looked alot like Pine to my inexperienced eyes. The had 6 or 7 racks of boards of various lengths and widths. The one thing I did notice was the price. A 6×6 x 1 poplar board (3 board feet) was going for about $23. Tha...

From Logs To Lumber #3: got some hard maple and cherry logs today

05-20-2009 03:36 AM by alaskan79 | 2 comments »

Today was a good day for logs. Got 3 nice Hard Maple logs the butt log is 20 inchs on the small end and is 13 feet long and got 2 shorter logs from the same tree that are each 10 feet long. Also got four cherry logs from the same cherry tree. The tree was dead and the sap wood had rotted away. It was still standing and when I cut it down it was in good shape. Also the same tree had a burl on it about 4 inchs square and I cut it off, it had some really wild looking grain. Looks like I might ha...

Starting Woodworking. #2: To choose a router table plan

05-20-2009 03:29 AM by Haydar | 7 comments »

Initially, I had decided to build a router table using a plan I found at Bob’s plans. The plan for the table above is located here This table seems simple enough for me to build, and the plans are detailed enough for me. But it is a bench top table. I have enough room to build a full router table and I am wondering if it would make more sense to do that. I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. I see so many beautiful tables here that are way out of my league. But I...

002: a rolling base for my planer #1: general assembly

05-20-2009 02:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

My Craftsman 13” planer is a real beast to move around in the shop. It’s very heavy, and really bulky. As such, it’s just always either in the way when I don’t need it, or really hard to get to when I do, having collected many items from other projects on and around it since its previous use. After setting up to use it, I’m often too tired to. I’ve even changed some projects to avoid planing altogether, just because I don’t want to move a few dozen th...

Workbench Magazine, Please Verify

05-19-2009 11:18 PM by tmiller | 9 comments »

I believe a tip I submitted is in this months issue of Workbench magazine. I was told it was going to be in the May/June issue. Can anyone verify this for me. Believe it or not I have let my subscription lapse. It was a tip for putting wheels on a table saw (or other shop equipment). It should say something like thanks to “submitted by Todd Miller from Scottsdale, AZ”. I think that is what they write by the tip. These tips are usually near the back of the magazine.

Introduction & current status

05-19-2009 08:38 PM by Derrek LeRouax | 10 comments »

Hello to all. I have spent the last couple of months finding myself falling back on this site for advice, photos, projects, and just general info. After my last “oops”, I figured it was time to “get in the game”. I am currenlty finishing an 8’ wide by 7’ tall bookcase in my soon-to-be guest bedroom in order to make way for a new baby. I’ll post photos soon, but I will warn you: they aren’t much to look at. My next woodoworking project is g...
