Having one’s tools on wheels, providing mobility in the work shop is great. Have a double duty station that is not only mobile but helps you gain back valuable bench space… now that’s the “cat’s meow.” The drill currently sits on the work bench while the planer is on a make-shift rolling cart I’ve seen here on LJ and on You Tube these flip tables. But better yet, Hank, a local wood worker has one I’ve seen in person and I certainly see how helpful it is. If you are interested i...
Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
My wife is a member of the Facebook group that’s a online garage sale for our community (just about all towns have one, check it out). Last weekend she found three tools and asked if I was interested. A Makita thickness planer, Delta benchtop jointer and a Ryobi detail biscuit jointer. After some negotiations, I purchased all three for $100. Now the jointer and planer were used by a finish carpenter that is going through hard times, both have seen some hard use. But both work gr...
Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...
This is my attempt at a book box.Made with mahogany and pine. For the inlay I just used the table saw to make the grove.The hinges have taken up the most time but are very rewarding once they work properly. I will update the project as it progresses with photos.
Hey you guys! Just wanted to let you know that I have written two posts on my blogspot blog at WoodForTheTrees. The first post is, hopefully, going to be one of many of my Bloggo-mendations! With these I hope to share with you all the blogs that I really like and why you should go and check them out, if you haven’t already. The inaugural Bloggo-mendation is all about Frank Howarths Woodshop Blog at frankmakes.com. “Hi everybody! Check out my blog” I have been...
I’m in the middle of an oak trestle table build for my son & DIL, and currently just finished gluing up the top. The top is made from three 17” wide boards, purchased at a local saw mill, and the owner was gracious enough to provide S2S for me on this purchase, as I mentioned to him that my planer is limited to 13”. Even though the top boards are surfaced to 3/4”, I know I’ll need to plane & scrape after glue up to remove all machining marks, so I want...
So a few weeks ago i posted a picture of the cabinet I made for American Woodworker Magazine. Well finally I’ve got the video done. Hope you enjoy it.
This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...
