Seating #1: Bar Stools

12-09-2010 01:42 AM by Brian Lackey | 3 comments »

I am looking to design and build new bar stools for our kitchen island. I am looking for a design like that of the Aaron Stools (Pottery Barn) which I already own that style but the workmanship is junk. They squeak and are loose. Any ideas on where to find plans or designs to inspire my design? It has been a year since I made my last project which was the cherry tv stand. BTW, Home Depot has the Dewalt 12” double compound sliding miter saw for $599 and you get the $200 HD stand fre...

Air Filtration System

12-08-2010 11:32 PM by MikeGCNY | 7 comments »

I planned on buying one of these, but I would rather spend the money on tools that directly impact the quality of my projects. I built this using an attic fan that I was given, some left over wood and a scrap piece of extension cord. I purchased the furnace filters (there are 3 of them in different MERV ratings), the hinges, the clasp, the electrical switch and box. The only thing i need to do is build the blade guard on the exhaust side, add some eyes for hanging and then figure out whe...

Machinist Toolbox #2: Milling some Lumber

12-08-2010 10:51 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I am not sure how much time I’ll have for this project, so I’m taking every moment I can and do baby steps to hopefully drive this thing through. Last night I went and picked up what boards seem to be most fitting for this project that will yield the best materials for the parts. The toolbox is 10” deep, but I did not find anything that wide. the widest I have is 8” so I’ll have to make some glue ups for full width boards. I did get a good selection of mahogan...

I wanted to say hi to everyone and show you a preview of my shop and what I have to deal with when I want to do some woodworking. I roll everything outside and hook up the dust collector and off I go with my tunes and a fresh pot of coffee life don’t get any better. I will post another video when I get things set up outside today was a bit chilly so I will wait untill it gets over 70 degrees then give it a try again.

Built In Closets #10: Shelves

12-08-2010 09:25 PM by SPHinTampa | 5 comments »

Next step in this project is to add shelving between the towers which contain the closet rods. Start with left over sheet stock Glued 1/8” strips (ripped on portable table saw) to long side of the plywood I used masking tape to “clamp” strip to board and put shelf face down on shop floor to use shelf weight to apply additional clamping pressure. Using random orbit sander, went from 180 grit then 220 grit on faces. Use plane to clean up strip overhang on th...

Workshop Development #9: Pondering replacing the 10" CMS with a slider, or a RAS. HELP ME DECIDE PLEASE!!!

12-08-2010 08:42 PM by dbhost | 22 comments »

The small capacity of my 10” non sliding compound miter saw has been on my nerves for quite a while now. Especially when doing outdoor projects where I tend to cut a lot of 4×4 lumber, and any idea of crosscutting stock wider than about 4” or maybe 5” if I am lucky, is just shot out the door. Most of the time it’s fine, but there are more than a few occasions where the lack of capacity had me trying to figure out a way to accurately guide a circular saw, in 2 dif...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #6: Wood purchase

12-08-2010 08:03 PM by bues0022 | 6 comments »

This past weekend I drove down to the Milwaukee area and picked up most of my wood. I know I bought way too much, and because of that spent much more than I wanted to, but overall I’m pretty happy with my purchase. The big downside I found once I got there was the lack of 8/4 wood. He’d been cleaned out pretty good of the maple and walnut, and the fresh-cut 8/4 won’t be in and out of the kiln for a few months. This also lead to me purchasing too much, but there’s reall...
