Balanced Work Bench #3: I'm a bit retarded...

258 days ago by Jeremiah | 4 comments »

I had all these great ideas about this workbench, and how i was going to make it….sort of missed a BIG mistake. The leg vise i made, didn’t clear the top drawer. Such a DUMB mistake. Unfortunately i didn’t spot it until i was too far along. So i panicked and cut the vise to fit. After sleeping on it, i decided that too was really DUMB. but i had already cut it…. Look for yourself, please don’t laugh too hard (or if you do, don’t post it) BEFORE...

Little Woodworkers make a wood and wire basket

266 days ago by Kevin Wells | 1 comment »

My blog site ( www.chuckinwood.com ) has been doing a series on “Little Woodworker” projects. We used the last project to start making videos with. This one is more or less a test of our video making ability, so its kind of basic but does demonstrate making a wood and wire basket with one of our Little Woodworkers. In the future we’ll be tackling more projects such as the complete remodel of my shop… Thanks for watching Kevin

I’ll be hopping in the car and driving out to beautiful Franklin, Indiana tomorrow (Sunday) morning to attend two classes next week at Marc Adams’ School of Woodworking.

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #2: Footboard

270 days ago by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

Here is the bed project at hand…-----I added some through tenons to complete the front legs.-----With the legs complete, it was simply a matter of constructing a mortise and tenon frame. The grooves for the panels are 1/2” deep, while the stile tenons are 1-1/2” long for added strength. This extra tenon length also helps to register the stiles in postion during glueup. -----Next I temporarily clamp the panel behind the frame, to transfer the opening size to the panel. -...

Greenhouse #1: Here's the Scoop

278 days ago by Steve | 0 comments »

I am building a greenhouse and wanted to post some info here about the greenhouse. I just can’t deal with posting in both places, so have decided because the greenhouse relates more to gardening to post my info in my gardening blog. So if your interested check it out over in GardenTenders. I am providing sufficient details, so if someone choose to do so, you could build a replica of my greenhouse.

Getting Started!

279 days ago by Tim Roman | 0 comments »

I must confess up front that I’m a great procrastinator! I start things and take months and even years to finish them, if I ever do. I have great PLANS for projects that sit on the shelf for a long time. Lately, however, I’ve made some progress in this woodworking hobby I’ve gotten into and I take delight in seeing something I’ve completed. If you ask my wife, she’ll confirm that I will frequently walk out into my workshop during commercial breaks of TV sho...

Balanced Work Bench #2: building the leg vise

279 days ago by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

i have never made a leg vise before and i have no idea what to expect with the one i made. The basic concept came from Shop Notes. And i like the basic concept. However, i do NOT like the price of ACME Rod, ACME nuts or ACME ANYTHING. so i went with “off the shelf” 3/4” threaded rod from LOWES. I dont know if this will bite me in the butt or not. But just in case, i built the vice so i could change it out if i need to use a better threaded rod. The dimensions ...
