Building a Credenza #13: Assembly and done!

01-27-2011 04:20 PM by Blake | 9 comments »

Here is the final photo to wrap up this blog: My finishing guy let me do the final assembly in his shop so I wouldn’t have to move it twice. Then I took it directly to my friends photo studio where I did the photography. From there my dad helped me move it up to his house where it will stay for a few months until I have a big enough living room to keep it in. Total building time so far: Just over 150 hours And here it is!

A much needed outfeed table and dust arm in the making (update).

01-27-2011 03:33 PM by tedth66 | 6 comments »

I’ve been sick of using the 12” wide outfeed roller stand for over a year now so I’m finally making a fold down outfeed table that’ll only add about an inch to the depth of my saw cabinet when the table is folded down. Here’s my cabinet before the addition…. I had to take a different approach and make a frame attached to my cabinet and the cast iron wing of the saw. After attaching the support arms I added a coup...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #238: Still Drawing

01-27-2011 03:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am still in the drawing stages of designing some new trays. If all goes well, I should be able to start cutting by tomorrow. I am in the process of making four new trays and I want to have them all finished by Monday. That is a pretty ambitious goal for even myself, but somehow I feel that proclaiming it in public, it will push me a little bit harder to accomplish it. I don’t really need a lot of pushing though, because I am rather excited about the new designs. The Easter bunny...

Backsaw Project #1: Getting Some Special Wood

01-27-2011 03:02 PM by pastorglen | 2 comments »

A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to build another backsaw. (Here’s a picture of my first backsaw project.) The saw that I wanted to duplicate is a Disston No. 77 that was my grandfather’s and perhaps even my great grandfather’s. My dad told me about it one day when I was tossing around the idea of a backsaw project. He said that my grandpa kept the Disston No. 77 (you’ll love this) in the barn to remove horns from the cows. It made me sick. I was sure the saw w...

Home Depot guy just wouldn't listen

01-27-2011 08:56 AM by Russ | 14 comments »

So I went to Home Depot to get a pine rod for a project. It was marked $1.57/lf. Cut what I needed and went to the front. Young guy (maybe 18 or so) says “ohh it’s missing the tag”. I tell him it’s 1 1/4” rod but he can’t find it in the computer. I tell him it was marked $1.57/lf he says “yeah I know”. So he calls that area tells them “I have wood rod maybe an inch in diameter” again I tell him it’s 1 1/4”. He say...

An Old Project, No Longer With Me

01-27-2011 05:43 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

My Mother’s frame & picture present from me and my family – this is about the most well put together wood piece I’ve done. The second in a series, I plan on tweaking the design (oak, danish oil finish, curved verticals with flat horizontals) until I get it right. Then I’m filling the house with framed art and pretending I’m cultured and human. I have an interesting post on planned for this weekend – a question regarding q...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #2: Everything is in parts

01-27-2011 05:27 AM by HokieMojo | 7 comments »

I broke everything down. I’m working on trying to clean up all the parts. It is slow going because I’ve been cleaning up the garage trying to clear up space. In the pictures below, you can see the mess of parts. I’m afraid the project will be going on hold for a little while as I add a little bit of shop storage. The problem at the moment is that I have ZERO storage so EVERY tool I own is on my workbench. That leaves no space to actually work. I’m going to build...

Shop Storage Solutions #7: A final descision on the sheet goods storage

01-27-2011 04:36 AM by HokieMojo | 4 comments »

I finally made up my mind about what to do with the lumber rack in the last blog post. The theory was that the behemoth of a rack would sit in the right bay of my garage. When I wanted to do some woodworking, I’d pull my wife’s car out, push the rack into her spot, and then I could work at my bench. I know you don’t see it in the photo above, but the opposite side would hold tons of tools and clamps. That means that right behind me would be everything I needed at m...
