Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #2: No Such Thing As a Lazy Mortise

09-14-2010 03:48 AM by Eric | 2 comments »

Since my last post, I’ve done some preparations for traveling, traveling, and recovering from traveling, so I haven’t had much shop time. Last night I had an hour or two. I had been considering building my double-screw Moxon vise for the Instructables woodworking contest. Nice prizes! But I figured I’d better stay focused and try to make more progress on the bench. Next step: mortising the legs for the short stretchers. In my last post I suggested that it’d be &...

WorkBench #5: Workbench (almost) done

09-14-2010 03:22 AM by grimt | 7 comments »

Well I have been tardy in updating my blog for my workbench. It’s been so long that my bench looks well used and even abused. It’s almost done: I still need to find and fit two drawer fronts. My idea is to make the drawer fronts out of 6 different woods. So far I have European Beech, Matai, Oak and Maple. I am very pleased with how the bench turned out, here are some pictures: It is rock solid, if I hadn’t inserted some drawers we would be using it as an ea...

it's that time again -i'm only assisting on this one-

09-14-2010 02:46 AM by learnin2do | 10 comments »

-yeah, dig that crazy bentwood design my man has going! It blends better with the surrounding landscape! I was skeptical at first, but he now has it comfortably supported enough that i even got on the roof to apply some sawdust & woodglue filler to holes and cracks. -reclaimed and salvaged (or in this case, already naturally felled) materials, of course. -just 2 weeks left! We (mostly he) did get a lot closer to finishing before we left, but it got too dark to get a phone pic...

My intro

09-13-2010 11:36 PM by Soundforest | 3 comments »

This is my first post here after joining a short time ago. Nearing “retirement”, like many, I’ve finally decided to put time into woodworking, rather than thinking on/off about it for 45 years. My “shop” has a lot of space – it’s the ground level of an old barn. 2/3 of it is a gravel floor, 1/3 is a wooden floor where my Ryobi BT3000 sits. I’ve started on dust collection using the HF DC and 4” S&D pipe. I hope to finish the floor, at ...

The retired life #2: Salvaging

09-13-2010 08:05 PM by Russ | 14 comments »

One of my philosophies of retirement is to trade the lost income by investing my free time into saving resources and money. Here in Alaska we have transfer stations at the dump sights where goods that may be of some use for another are left. It is amazing what is left! Sunday is our weekly trip to the two stations in our area and although the number of people searching through these items has easily tripled we still came home with usable stuff. Most of our clothes and all my shop rags come fr...

A journey into the workshop. #69: More shop organization. Hey, I have a FLOOR!

09-13-2010 06:04 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Yes, a silly thing to take notice of, but I have a floor under all that lumber, and whatnot… Now having said that, I have a LONG way to go before the useless junk is fully out of the shop, but the weekend did some some productivity. On Friday night, I had managed to get the lathe, and badly disorganized stack of sheet goods and sheet cutoffs moved away from the wall. The lumber rack was installed. Saturday daytime was shot to, well let’s just say it’s neither Heaven...

Evolution of a Shop #12: Table Saw Accessory Cart

09-13-2010 05:26 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

I wanted to take advantage of the space under my table saw’s right side to create a place to keep blades, inserts, push sticks, etc. This is by no means a new idea, but thought it worthwhile to post. I built the entire cabinet out of 3/4” birch ply from Lowe’s using pockethole screws and glue. Drawer slides are full extension. The drawer fronts are wrapped in cherry. Finish is 2 coats of a BLO and mineral spirits mix. Now I’ve got all my table saw stuff right at ...
