Mobile Assembly Table

05-23-2015 06:53 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I decided to replace the tear -down workstation in my garage shop. It was not mobile and it became more stationary than a tear-down temporary assembly table. I feel that in my garage shop everything should mobile if it is on the floor. The exceptions are some storage racks and the sheets storage area. The five gallon buckets that captures my wood scraps should one day be replaced with a scrap mobile rack. Until then they camp under my hardwood wall rack. I did some searches for an a...

Kitchen Utensil Box #2: Milling the components

05-19-2015 06:16 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...

Cedar Cooler Box #1: Materials & Tools & Sketchup Designs

05-04-2015 06:41 PM by edwood1975 | 4 comments »

I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...

Kitchen Utensil Box #1: Introduction

04-13-2015 06:08 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello everyone, It’s been a while since my last post regarding my mini hand tool cabinet, which is still under construction (truthfully, I haven’t really made any progress since my last post at the link above). I became very busy at the end of last year defending my Ph. D. thesis. That’s right, you may now call me “Doctor”! Moving on to the matters at hand, as you can see from the photo below, we have a kitchen drawer which is way overcrowded with large kit...

Japanese Tool Box #5: Handles

04-11-2015 04:09 AM by ruddhess | 5 comments »

New saw cuts SO very smooth – glue-up quality! I’m very pleased! Gluing the second “handle” to the end. Handles are clamped and waiting for glue to dry. Bottom still has screws in place and will come out tomorrow some time when the glue has dried more. Starting to look really nice! I love this design – traditional Japanese carpenter tool box. Uh oh! I am such a nongerhead! The handle on one end was sticking up just a tad so I went to shave it down a b...

Side projects and stuff

04-08-2015 06:47 PM by asiago | 1 comment »

I’m still waiting for my mini kanna to arrive, and I’m kind of in-between big projects. I’ve really got nothing noteworthy going on. It’s been a slow period for my woodworking, consisting of nothing more than a sharpening day last week. My wife kept dropping a deck of tarot cards and the box is now mashed up pretty good, so I decided to do a quick little project and build a card box. I didn’t feel like doing any “high woodcraft”, so I grabbed so...

Japanese Tool Box #1: Cutting Sides & Square Tenons

04-05-2015 01:23 PM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

I actually broke down and sharpened the blade on one of my crappy (not the crappiest, next one up) little block planes. Made some shavings. Not exactly the right tool for the job and the blade wasn’t dull anymore, just not as sharp as it needed to be. Resorted to a bit of hand sanding with a block and some 120 grit. Inching my way toward ‘real’ woodworking! I am going to do some square mortise/tenon joints for the ends of the box. This time, I am doing it “rightR...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1515: FLOWERS!!!!

03-12-2015 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today I am revealing the fourth and final new trinket box pattern that I created over the weekend. I was really pleased with all the kind reponses that I have received regarding them. It feels good to make something that people seem to like so much. I spent the day yesterday writing up the pattern packets for these projects. I tried to include some step-by-step photos so that even newer scrollers would be able to make the projects successfully. Actually they aren't that difficult at ...
