And so it begins. #1: Picking sides.

12-28-2009 07:42 AM by Navtrtl | 12 comments »

As some of you may have read on my profile page, I have been wanting to get into woodworking for a long time now. I have been reading the magazines, watching the shows, and reading on forums for years. I had not been able to take the plunge due to budget and space limitations. Not to mention that when I was in the Navy, I didn’t want to have to worry about shipping my equipment every time I changed commands. It seems that no one ever really makes it through a government relocation w...

Office printer cupboard #1: A cupboard for the office - printer stand and supply storage

12-28-2009 07:38 AM by timrowledge | 0 comments »

For an alarming length of time my two printers have been sitting on the floor in my home office. Ironically I’m about to move but nonetheless it is time to make some more satisfactory accommodation for them. I need space for a laser printer/copier and a photo printer along with storage space for the accompanying papers (piles of the stuff, all sorts of different types and sizes) and inks and toners and probably snacks for the little men that live inside to do the actual painting work. I...

1st project - Workbench #1: Day 1

12-28-2009 05:50 AM by MikeOB | 5 comments »

I’m using the design from Wood Magazine Nov. 2009 as a guide. I found a solid core door for $5.00 on craigslist months ago that will be my bench top. Went to Menards to get the majority of my wood and some of the screws, casters, etc. The rest I will get from Ace when I need them. Got to use my new/used table saw. Put my new blade and zero clearance insert in it and cleaned up the table. Used my basic miter saw which isn’t big enough to cut some pieces in half. That is wh...

Update of latest project

12-28-2009 05:16 AM by Joe Watson | 0 comments »

I am working on a table for a friend and finally gotten to the finishing part of the process. I am playing with something new which is turning out well so far. I bought a can of wiping poly and added some BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil). Then wiping on with a cotton rag. This is the easiest to apply aside from shellac. The wood I am using is maple which is the same stuff I talked about getting from a cabinet shop dumpster. The maple was originally cabinet door styles and rails. Took me a while to ma...

A journey into the workshop. #32: Table Saw router wing almost done, and a commission of sorts...

12-28-2009 04:52 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

My table saw router wing, the thing that has been victim to my stupidity, and a runaway router is nearly complete. Some final sanding of the edges, installing the leveling hardware, router switch, and final adjustments are all that is left to do… The runaway router goof was corrected by cutting the slot oversize, and shimming it with a strip of red oak, and a strip of tempered hardboard. Yes I know it sounds funny, but it really doesn’t look all that bad… The router pl...

Adirondack Chair & Table #2: I Love the Smell of Mahogany in the Morning

12-28-2009 04:36 AM by jcontract | 1 comment »

After receiving about 20 inches of snow last week, this weekend brought heavy rain and warmer temperatures to the NY metro area. And there was enough rain to wash almost every trace of snow away. Today, I took the trip down to my friend John’s to get some more work done on the chair. John has the Jointer, the Surface Planer, and the Table Saw that I am sorely missing in my lame excuse for a shop. But, it’s a great excuse to get together and have some dedicated shop time. We ha...

Hello all and happy holidays. I got the feet done for the dresser and got a good start on the drawer fronts and shells. Right now I’m working on the aprons that go between the feet. But here’s a few photos ! ! ! ! ! !

$50 24" Grizzly drum sander #3: Settled on the paint color... going to be different.

Still sanding down, wire brushing, and cleaning up part this weekend.THe table with the conveor belt removed…I’m thinking the wood is too thick, someone has put 3/4” ply on it. I plan on using 1/2” covered with formica for the belt to ride on. After removing the plywood and adjustment screws, giving it a good sanding and wire brushing… The height screws are being cleaned and waxed up. The geared motor checked out good, so time to sand and paint. And fi...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #23: Making Kitchen Cabinets: Overview Design Phase

12-28-2009 12:59 AM by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

In the upcoming part of this series I will blog how to make base kitchen cabinets. I learned to make cabinets in a class and think that they are well within the range of any intermediate woodworker. This project will be a mix of traditional and modern materials/ techniques. In this project I will be making faceframe cabinets with traditional surface mounted hinges, plywood boxes, and modern drawer slides. If you are interested in building your own cabinets I think it will be a useful proje...
