DIY Tools | Woodworking #1: A Simple Stand for a Belt Sander

04-29-2016 09:07 AM by Humus Workshop | 0 comments »

First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone. You can watch the building process on this video: https://youtu.be/5gfi6SDOa3c I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...

TV stand #2: Measurements and cuts

04-08-2016 04:06 PM by TripleXDom | 2 comments »

From what I have spent this entire week working on was acquiring and perfecting my measurements. I plan on making the length up to 48 inches, the height up to 32 inches, and the width to 16 inches. I also had to measure my consoles and TV box but the way the plywood is cut they all fall into perfect increments. I haven’t actually gotten to start cutting or physically get a feel for what I’m gonna do because I have to gather the money so I can get the wood, which I plan on doing n...

TV stand #1: TV Stand plans

04-05-2016 04:06 PM by TripleXDom | 1 comment »

This entry is going to explain my plans and design. I am obviously working on making a TV stand that’s arts and crats type style. It is going to be in my room but it has to be a good size so it’s not too big or too small for my 42 inch TV. I also plan on it being able to hold my cable box, Xbox 360, games, movies, etc. I have to get more exact measurements but have a good feel of what I plan on using, stay tuned.

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #10: Finally!

02-25-2016 09:51 PM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll its finally finished. I’ve been busy since my last entry, but I kept pecking away at it. I had some issue with the finishing. I had the top all done, and decided to add one more coat. I had wet sanded it down with 400, and wiped on the final coat. The coat did not cover like when I was brushing it on, so I let it dry for 6 hour and brushed on what I thought would be the final coat. When I came back, the finish had bubbled in several spots. So, back to sanding. I&#...

Project to learn woodturning. #1: My Chess Set

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Nightstands #1: Using Pintodeluxe's design for arts and crafts nightstands

02-22-2016 06:06 PM by thebigmuddy | 3 comments »

My wife and I loved the nightstands from Pintodeluxe we found on his blog, and I decided to try and replicate them. I decided to use oak, though it is not quartersawn, and Kreg joinery where possible. I have not nearly reached the skill level that Pinto has, but thought I would give it a shot anyway. Looking at his blog, we realized that the set he made would be a little large for our taste, so I sized them down a bit. Thanks for sharing your project Pinto! The Kreg joinery makes it a ...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
