Jeweler's Bench #1: The Top

05-11-2010 01:00 AM by Marc | 3 comments »

My wife and I have been sharing my workbench out in the garage for my woodworking projects as well as her jewelry making projects for a while now but we both decided it was time for her to have her own workbench. We looked around online and found some nice looking jeweler’s benches but of course I said: “I could just build you one of those.”, so here we are. I quickly looked around for some plans but didn’t find any so I just had her pick out the one she liked best and...

Well, this has come round quick.. the Timber and Working with Wood Show will be in Brisbane the end of next week. This has always been the highlight of my year and even more so now that I am part of it… I was fortunate enough to be involved with the Show in Melbourne late last year… but I have not been an exhibitor at the Brisbane Timber and Working with Wood Show… While these shows take a lot of organising and after it is all over you swear never again… when they ...

My Roubo Build #2: Ah, Crap--Whinge Fest

05-10-2010 09:31 PM by naomi weiss | 3 comments »

From Roubo Slumber This is the current state of my Roubo. I’m pretty embarrassed about that, given that i have had the lumber for a few months now. I have encountered several glitches, besides my doctorate (when it gets in the way of woodworking, that’s exactly how i think of the damn thing). -First off, i miscalculated the stretchers. Since it’s 2 laminated pieces, one should be shorter than the other, and i ordered 2 of the same size (and shorter at that! the width betwe...

Works for me #12: Everything in its place

05-10-2010 09:11 PM by Dave Owen | 6 comments »

To me, good habits are hard to make and easy to break. Years ago, when I would misplace something, my wonderful wife would often chide me with, “If you’d put things in the same place every time, you wouldn’t lose them!”. My problem was that I had learned she had an uncanny ability to find any misplaced item within minutes of hearing its description – and I came to depend on that. I knew it wouldn’t be long before I heard, “Is this what you’re...

New Find, 18" jig saw

05-10-2010 05:56 PM by CampD | 5 comments »

I’ve noticed so many on here post their “Barn Finds” well here’s my newest addition to my arsenal. A recent client had this sitting in his basement for he doesnt “remeber how long” and offered it to me for FREE! how could I refuse. It’s a Sears Robuck Model# 103 0407 with a 18” thought. Someone had attempted to hook a motor up to it and get it working, but first thing I noticed was that it had the wrong pullies on it (blade would be way to fast)...

Chicken Coop #1: Gathering tools and supplies

05-10-2010 04:56 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

The 7×8 lean-to shed is going to be delivered tonight. This is a simple but sturdy Amish built shed with a roof that is about 6’ at one side and 5’ at the other. We plan on having between 10 and 15 chickens to free range and rid our yard of ticks, since my husband has been afflicted with lyme disease. The structure does not have any windows or ventilation, nor any “chicken-furniture”, so I’ll have to modify it. This is my first big remodeling/woodworki...
