Double Single Bed #2: Big Pieces Into Small Pieces

12-16-2015 04:01 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

Well, the SE Michigan weather continues to be more balmy than frozen, so work on the bed frames continues. I’m out of propane now, too. This week I received the bed bolts from Horton Brass ($4.50 each) & placed an order for the box spring fasteners / bed irons ($2.25) and bed bolt covers ($1.85) from Baltimore Hardware. I rough cut, jointed, & thickness planed the pieces for the posts, 2 x long and 2 x short for each bed, from 8/4 red oak. For the first 12 inches, rippin...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...

Countersink From Screwdriver Bit

11-19-2015 08:26 PM by Tom Howbridge | 1 comment »

Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...

Butterfly Dining Table #4: Base Details and Base Assembly

11-16-2015 12:16 AM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again! I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s sta...

Freaking Drawers

11-07-2015 02:54 AM by Matt | 7 comments »

So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...

Shop stuff #9: Blade cleaning

10-29-2015 07:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I was watching one of the You Tube channels I subscribe to and found a neat way to clean saw blades. It works very well and I had one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments. A great tip I got from the TabLeft Workshop channel that I tried. https://youtu.be/BZ-d1MdbQI8

Super workbench (at least for me)

09-24-2015 09:08 PM by woodworkerguyca | 6 comments »

For about a month I have been working on a new workbench. I’ve spent a little time researching what others have done to integrate the 3 tools I use the most, table saw, miter saw, router. The miter saw is held in place by sliding it over 4 aluminum pins so it can quickly moved to under the surface when I need more space. I kept the cutout so I can place the table cutout back when I remove the saw. I’m still working out how to mount the router to the table...
