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 ...

04-11-2015 06:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Wow it seems like this is going slow. Work has been busy and finding time to work on this bunk bed is hard. However, I have finished up another step in the bunk bed and that is getting all the mortises chopped out on the ends. There were 12 total and they all went smooth. In this video I show what tools you need to mark your mortises as well as which tools you’ll need to chop out the mortises. Enjoy, comment, share, and give it a thumbs up! View on YouTube

Another 52 Weeks #10: Games, Show, Furniture, Gramps

03-09-2015 01:02 AM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

So the good news is I got all the games, wine tilts and most of the turning done for the show that we had yesterday. I was also able to complete the 9th piece in my Dimensional Office Furniture set and get it put into place. I did also post this as a project but let me just take a minute to expand upon the story a little more. the bookshelf matches the other two and was built specifically to hold the tool chest you see sitting on top of it. I have talked about my grandfather her...

2x4 Bench: A cheap Pottery Barn knock-off

12-28-2014 07:19 PM by Chris McDowell | 5 comments »

My sister-in-law sent a picture of a bench and asked if I could make one to go in her entryway. The legs on it would’ve required compound angles, which I didn’t really want to deal with so I looked for other similar benches online and found one by Pottery Barn in which the legs were only angled in one direction, not two. So I set about to make it using the pictures from the Pottery Barn website as reference. I used only 2×4’s since I can’t afford to pay for a...

Workshop #29: New Bandsaw Stand

06-27-2014 08:44 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I bought my old Craftsman bandsaw off of Craigslist a sometime ago and it came with a metal stand with some nice retractable wheels. You see it here in an old shop picture. It has done a great job but I was constantly tightening the screws holding it on the stand and when I moved it into place next to my new lathe I soon was tripping over the splayed legs or killing my ankle on the wheel locks. So I finally took some time to get a new stand built for it. the best part is that I...
