Sewing Center #7

1983 days ago by robbi | 2 comments »

I worked on this last weekend but didn’t post anything because all I got done were the feet. The plans to this thing are kind of lame. The legs are only two sided with a 15 degree bevel on them. I really had to just guess on everything, they gave you dimensions, but that was it, didn’t tell you about the bevels or anything, if you just did everything square, nothing fit, so I just tweeked it myself. I started on the doors last weekend too, but discovered I had a problem with...

Po mans dust collector

1984 days ago by wdkits1 | 7 comments »

Back in 1993,I was just starting out creating intarsia and I had just gotten an order from Leichtung Workshops for 440 of my intarsia project kits. I could no longer work out of my little 8×10 shed behind my house so I made the decision to rent a space to set up shop. I found a building for rent for $350.00 a month so I moved everything into it and set up my production line. I had a Delta 14” bandsaw,Delta 6” jointer and Delta 12”planer plus a couple of router table...

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #3: Drywall Day - I Have Some Great Friends

1984 days ago by Matt | 9 comments »

I planned the drywall installation for my shop on Saturday. Several of my friends agreed to come over and help me hang it. Since I had no experience with it, this was a blessing. The night before, 30 sheets of 1/2 and 5/8 inch drywall were delivered by a local lumber supplier. My plan was to get up and start rolling tools out of the shop and, hopefully, have an area we could work in by 9:00am. I got finished just in the nick of time. We managed to get 95% of the drywall hung, 60% ...

Delta Unisaw

1984 days ago by RWR | 3 comments »

Well, after considerable thought and research I have decided to buy a new table saw. However, I need to sell my 3HP Unisaw, with 52 inch Unifence, etc. This is a very good saw. So, if anyone lives near Memphis,Tennesse, it is for sale at $650. Thought I would post this on Lumberjocks before Craigslist, etc. If anyone is interested, I will be glad to send pictures vis email. It is also still set up for evaluation. Thanks.

Back At Teaching...This Time With Wood #2: Preparing the sheet stock

1984 days ago by PGreene | 4 comments »

Well, Immanuel and I finished planning out the project this week and went to Lowes to purchase sheet stock. He decided on a three drawer bottom with flat pannel doors at the top. It will be 6 1/2 ft tall, 16” deep and 36” wide. I also had time to teach him the difference in grades of plywood and solid wood. He will have a good chance to compare when we mill rough stock that I have at the shop. I thought it would be good for him to use both purchased lumber and rough milled lu...

Woodworking Journal #6: New Web Site

1984 days ago by DonFaulk0517 | 4 comments »

In continuing to learn more about using web sites I decided to develop one of my own. A simple one that I could add other items which I wouldn’t add to the Lumberjock’s site. The site is MichiganWoodshop. If you would like, go a head and visit it and let me know thru this site what you thought and if you have any improvment ideas. Enjoy!

Circle cutting #1: Lazy Susan..the making of?

1984 days ago by degoose | 3 comments »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...

The Workbench #2: The Plan

1984 days ago by Craig S. Cottingham | 1 comment »

A couple of months ago, I started obsessing about workbenches. I downloaded every workbench article I could find at Popular Woodworking . I scoured every back issue of every magazine I have. I borrowed a copy of Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use by Christopher Schwarz from the public library, then bought a copy of my own once I realized I’d found the Holy Grail. I’ll save most of my gushing for a proper review (that’s another post) and try to st...
