Mobile woodshop

06-20-2011 05:16 PM by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation. This is a great idea. http://willieswoodshop.com/ Insert from his website… Welcome to Willie’s Woodshop Since 1985,  Stephen Willner (Willie) has been working in a  classroom and credentialed by state of California , teaching basic woodworking skills to  children.

Gramps tools

10-31-2010 08:00 PM by mcoyfrog | 17 comments »

Back in 1989 my first and best mentor died, my grandpa lived next to me growing up and I spent many hours in his shop bugging him. He taught me a lot and little did I know years later I would still be repeating things he said in my head as I’m working. Gramps worked with oak and mahogany quite a bit so every time I smell either species I picture him looking over my shoulder. I think the coolest thing about woodworking is the legacy it leaves. I’ll be paying for something at a ...

My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

Finger Joints, my way #1: Making finger joints....

03-09-2017 06:50 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...

The Perfect Fit (a chisel storage short)

08-05-2015 06:38 AM by Jorgearaujo | 2 comments »

Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.

Treadle Lathe workbench #7: finally the workbench is recognizable....

04-09-2009 03:25 AM by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

Over the past few days, my brother and I have worked more on the workbench portion of the project. We framed out the bottom shelf and framed out the workbench top. We used some scrap 2×4’s to do the framing and some scrap plywood for the surface. Eventually, the plywood work surface will be covered with oak. We are still debating the best way to weld the crank together but I want to make sure everything fits and is functional first. The next step to tackle is the tension wheel, hea...

New Shop in the Raw #9: Hand Tool Storage/Sharpening Station

03-06-2016 10:02 PM by builtinbkyn | 23 comments »

With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...

Flag Box #4: Time for Splines

08-29-2012 06:12 PM by DBoltz | 1 comment »

We’ve got the box out of the clamps and smoothed out. Time to cut the splines. I have a spline cutting jig I made for my table saw. It has a saddle that rides along the fence similar to the 22.5 cutting jig. I do the top corners first to get them out of the way. The top corner, since the angles are 45 degrees, just sits in the jig normal. On the 22.5 cuts, I used one of my test pieces of pine to support the angle. You can see that in the picture. I also raised the saw blade a ...
