Project Musings and Unfortunate Interruptions

24 days ago by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I got a start on a whirligig for the 2014 Whirligig Wars. After the proof of concept, I got a few of the parts cut out and then decided some of the parts need to be out of thinner wood. Then a friend of ours passed away. This friend was what I call our church widow. She has absolutely no family, but a prepaid arrangement to pay for the cremation. I decided I should use the walnut drawer fronts I found to make an appropriate box for her remains. Our pastor will be receiving the ashes thi...

Outdoor Movie Projector Caddy

184 days ago by bbenack00 | 0 comments »

Our family likes to have outdoor movies on warm Friday nights. I’ve already built a projector ‘screen’ (piece of plywood painted white and framed with stained deck wood), and have had to construct a projector base out of a plastic storage bin (which contained the projector, the large speaker, and associated cordage) flipped upside-down and propped up to the appropriate angle. My thought is to build the attached image out of PTL. There are no measurements yet as I’m ...

Shop Vacumn Cart #4: Day 4 - Final

431 days ago by Harley130 | 2 comments »

After not getting to work at all Saturday in the shop because of family commitments, I got to work on my project most of the afternoon today. I wasn’t feeling to spunky after not getting back home till almost midnight last night. That was two hours after my normal bedtime. I trudged along and manged to complete the project and declared Victory at about 7:30 pm. I added an additional modification at the last moment for three more attachment storage holes and then decided to use a tub...

Shop Vacumn Cart #2: Day 3

433 days ago by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Made good progress so far today, made the top and bottom shelves. Drilled the 2-1/2” holes in the top shelf and the 3” cut out for the vac hose. On the bottom shelf, drilled the 1” holes for the dowel rods and cut the 3” slot for the vac hose. Assembled the upright, decided to use my Kreg pockethole jig to assemble the upright and to fasten it to the base. Still have to make the hinged cover that goes over the top of the Dust Deputy. This cover also has a handle c...

Shop Vacumn Cart #3: Day 2

434 days ago by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Got the base and sub-base cut out yesterday. Had to revise the drawing several times to fit my shop-vac from the original design. Today was mostly a bust on working on the cart. Friend came by and we made a trip over to Mike’s Discount Store to see if anything new had came in. Mike’s is a returns/close out store that stocks about anything you can think of. Most is damaged or NOS, but you never know what your going to find.After lunch got back in the shop for about an hour and...

Shop Vacumn Cart #1: The beginning

436 days ago by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Florence, AL – Went yesterday and purchased a sheet of 3/4 plywood to begin the cart project. Got it home last evening and started breaking it down to size on the cut table. Had to stop several times and revise the Sketchup drawing since I had originally drew the project based on dimensions from a set of plans from Woodsmithplans. My shopvac is significantly larger than the one used in the original design of the cart. Today will finish cutting the components to size and making the ...

Stock & Cutoff storage #2: Flexible Sheet Storage

543 days ago by Speed8ump | 0 comments »

I rarely have a large amount of sheet goods, and when I do it tends to sit around for a limited time. Given that I really don’t want to waste space in my very small shop, so I’ve decided that my wood storage cart should have slide-out base. This is a little difficult to describe clearly so, here’s the picture of the result both closed: and opened: This allows me to squeeze this down to just under 24” with only a couple of sheets stored. It can be pulled out an ex...

Choosing the right casters can be key

550 days ago by Dan Corbin | 8 comments »

When designing roll carts and mobile bases, some thought needs to go into the selection of your casters. Choose a caster that is suited for your needs, and you’re probably going to have to spend a fair bit of money on them. If you don’t—if you try to go the cheap route on your casters—then you will probably end up with headaches and a mouth full of foul language as you attempt the move your cart. One of the great opportunities for me is I get to build things for S...

Stock & Cutoff storage #1: The Plan

562 days ago by Speed8ump | 2 comments »

I, like so many other neophyte woodworkers have too much stuff and not enough space. I only bought what I needed and only built what really needed to be made. So now here I am, 12’x18’ garage, detached, unheated, one little 60 watt bulb (10’ up on the ceiling), one plug in the ceiling (for the garage door opener). Then I got the table saw. Then my folks moved into a little retirement house. Between the inherited tools and the new prevalence of cut-offs I can’t tur...

New State, New Shop #3: First Project - Rolling Outfeed Cart

831 days ago by DrPuk2U | 1 comment »

So now I had the saw and the jointer set up. I went to a local lumberyard (Woodstock Lumber) and bought 14 16-foot 2×12s and 3 sheets of baltic birch plywood. The 2×12s I stickered and left in the middle of the garage. The plywood was for building three rolling carts, patterned after the ones in Fine Woodworking #190. My intent was to build one cart the exact same height as my saw and use it as an outfeed table. Then build another to hold the planer such that the outfeed for ...
