Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 3 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...

I needed to go shopping for more clamps ( it’s true never have enough) so I decided to buy 4 of the Bessey H style pipe clamps $80 or so later I am back in the shop doing test run with the new clamps and they didn’t fail.. as a side note I found this YouTube video on the use of cauls and pvc pipe so it used it The idea is to apply pressure accross the end grain of the panel using cauls so I put 2 cauls under the end grain and 2 over the end grain thus keeping the panel from ...

Simple Pen Blank Drilling Jig

10-24-2015 01:09 PM by Chris McDowell | 1 comment »

I got a new lathe in June 2015, but couldn’t use it until I was able to purchase some tools in October 2015. I decided to start learning woodturning by making pens. In order to make pens, you have to drill a hole in a blank and glue an insert into the hole. It’s favorable to drill the hole square from one end to the other. You can buy a vise for your drill press made specifically for pen blanks for $50, but I had already spent enough on the tools and couldn’t afford one. I...

Predominantly Shopsmith-Built Shaker-Style Candle Stand Table from a single 2X4

06-07-2015 11:22 PM by MrToolHunter | 4 comments »

Though I was traveling on business most of the month of May and only had a couple hours to spend in my shop, I had psyched myself up to participate in the 3rd Annual Summers Woodworking 2X4 contest and for the most part am happy that I did. I bet that I almost spent as much time sorting through 2X4’s at the several local Lowes and Home Depots and purchases a half dozen of them before locating my “White Whale”. It was an absolutely perfect specimen and will be the 2X4 ...
