A journey into the workshop. #52: Projects at a standstill. New shop items on order, by order of SWMBO...

03-22-2010 05:16 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

So Friday night, after dinner and helping with cleanup, I am doing some work in the shop. I’ve got the planer put up, and was doing some “put that away or I will never find it again” cleaning when SWMBO strolled out into the shop, and announced that I MUST clean this mess up. It would appear that to her, the ability to find the floor is important… Now I stood back and analyzed the situation… I could have argued with her, but those of you that are married know ...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #2: Kreg Top Track Production Stop/Chop Saw Outfeed Table/Fence

03-22-2010 04:12 AM by Brad_Nailor | 8 comments »

I recently got a great deal on a Kreg precision measuring kit at wood shop liquidation sale. I was considering buying the kit brand new for $140 bucks… I got this one for $25, but it was missing all the hardware. I sent an email to Kreg explaining my situation and asking if they could sell me the replacement parts and they promptly answered back saying they would send me out all the hardware I was missing for free! I can’t say enough great things about Kreg and their customer serv...

Christmas in March

03-22-2010 03:29 AM by donjoe | 4 comments »

I decided to share with you some of my tools I was able to acquire in the last week. Being unemployed for over a year now leaves the budget with very little money to buy tools or stock to work with. I have started to sell some of the pieces now so I justified it in my mind. These don’t allow me to do anything that I could’nt do before, only now I can do it easier and a whole lot faster. The Delta TP305 planer was a CL find. After looking for three months plus I found this one abou...

Pine Country Cabinet #8: Finish is Finished

03-22-2010 02:50 AM by David Murray | 3 comments »

After several weeks of working on this project I’ve finished up. This past week I applied 4 coats of Spar Urethane and this is the finished project. One of inside. And one last one of outside. Now I’ll cover it up and put it in the corner until my nephew’s wedding in July. Hopefully they will get many years of use out of it. Now I can build one for my wife next. Thanks for looking.

You can win $1.5 million! A bit on woodworking safety.

03-22-2010 12:49 AM by Stevinmarin | 37 comments »

I’ve been meaning to talk about shop safety for a while. The recent news that a jury awarded a guy $1.5 million prompted me to do so. I feel that safety is not the ultimate goal in woodworking. Creating something out of wood is first. I recommend reading Mike Rowe's article about Safety First.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

I am in a really really really REALLY good mood :D Been working for one of my friends the last year (nothing spectacular, doing stuff on the computer from home, he works for a web publishing company) and he just told me he got approval to move me up from what is essentially freelancing (paid-per-entry kinda setup) to salary starting in the next pay period (April 1st, and I already told him if this is an elaborate practical joke I WILL murder him with fire) :D Twice the money, plus (after ...

Extremely Average #79: Book Review

03-21-2010 11:31 PM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, It took me 3 days to finish the book I promised to finish in two, but that was mostly because I kept rereading the good parts. And there were a lot of good parts. Today I am posting my blog piece a bit early, because my parents and I are going to the first round of the NCAA women’s tournament in Ames tonight. I am very excited and confident that the #4 seeded Cyclones will do well. I will not be rolling out of Hilton until very late and likely won’t arrive ba...
