Roubo-ish Workbench #6: draw-BORING is anything but

02-10-2013 02:16 AM by John | 9 comments »

my first adventure into the wonderful world of DRAWBORING was a great experience. it was not difficult and the results are amazing. drawboring is pegging a tenon into a mortise with the peg-hole in the tenon shifted slightly toward the shoulder causing the peg to tighten up the joint I used red oak 1/2” dowels from lowes. I took my time going through all their stock to choose the straightest grain dowels. the ideal would be to make my own from riven white oak, but the red oak work...

Do you own a Harbor Frieght 7" rabbeting jointer? I Need some help?

01-28-2013 05:38 PM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

I purchased the Harbor Frieght 7” Rabbeting jointer as I thought it would be a good choice for a beginner to practice and make mistakes. Many things have blocked my path to assemling it. It’s got to be 7 years since I bought it. This winter I had finished many maintenance projects and commited myself to assembly of my workshop tools. I own and have assembled the HF Lathe with no difficulty. The jointer? !!! The manual I have is dated 2003. The assembly steps??? The ...

Videos #13: Assembling a Jet Lathe

12-08-2012 04:40 PM by tyskkvinna | 1 comment »

We got a fantastic Jet lathe in the workshop recently and decided to make a video of the assembly process. It’s pretty straightforward, but could be handy for reference before you try to put yours together. :)

My First Workbench #19: Day 19: Assembling the base!

08-31-2012 01:12 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the version with pictures, please click here. Finally, the day I’ve been working towards for the last three weeks or so has arrived! I was able to successfully glue up the base and insert the oak pegs. It is no longer a collection of parts and sawdust…it is now a collection of glued together parts and sawdust! I started by making 4” pegs out of the 3 ft long oak dowels that I had purchased with the initial lumber investment. I haven’t really worked with...

Mission Style Bed #4: Knockdown Fasteners, Assembly, Transport

05-07-2012 10:38 PM by Fraser Gandy | 1 comment »

So, this past while I’ve been busy with finishing up school, packing to get ready to move, and starting my work term/summer job at Added Touch Stairs and Floors. The final step and the work I did on the last day at school, was milling the lumber for the side rails, and mounting the hardware. My teachers were exclaiming “Are we ever gonna get to see this thing put together! C’mon c’mon!”. Sure enough about an hour later I was getting help putting it together, my f...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #9: Carcase Glue-up!

04-30-2012 02:35 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

Oh, yeah, it’s time to stop cutting bait and ‘fish’ for a next-level assembly with this project. In other words, this carcase has been apart and together a bunch of times for marking, cutting, and fitting rabbets and dados. All of those shelves and partitions are at the ready; there’s nothing more do do with the carcase apart that can’t just as well be done while it’s together. In the meantime, I have T&G back-cabinet material as well as face framing th...

Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

New State, New Shop #2: Step 2 and 3 - the saw and the jointer...

04-08-2012 09:04 PM by DrPuk2U | 3 comments »

We moved to our new home in northern Illinois more than a year ago and I spent a lot of time planning the shop, drawing plan after plan, searching the net for ideas and so on.To give her credit, my wife tired of the plans (even though I told her it was half the fun) and gave me a SawStop Professional Cabinet Saw for Christmas! If you wonder why I went hog-wild with a SawStop, I’ll tell you that one of my long-standing rules, even back in my days up north was “nobody gets injured, ...

Work Table #2: She's finished . . . for now that is.

03-22-2011 01:02 PM by AmandasHusband | 1 comment »

I was able to finish up my work table this weekend. Well, all but chamfering or rounding over the edges. I took thursday and friday off. Friday because it was beautiful. And thursday (St. Patricks Day) because it was my daughters 2nd birthday. But I got up early on thursday and made it out to pick up a couple sheets of 3/4” plywood, a plywood blade for my circular saw, and oak for the edges. While I was cutting the plywood down on friday afternoon, I either burnt up my saw or com...
