First Shop #3: Christmas and new tools

2307 days ago by YooperCasey | 5 comments »

Hello folks! Hope all have had a wonderful Christmas. Mine has been hectic but overall a great year. I’ll keep it brief as it is late… I received two notable woodworking gifts this year. The first is a Bosch CS20 Circular saw. A circular saw has been on my list as a future purchase and I had no clue I would be getting one. It came from my grandfather and all indications so far show it to be an excellent piece of equipment. It is stout unit and I look forward to making som...

Modern Sawboard #2: Version 2.0

749 days ago by chopnhack | 3 comments »

And the brainstorming continues: After much thought, the necessary thickness to recess the t-track would make the jig too thick to allow for use with the router, there simply would not be enough depth left to work with. Why build just a sawboard? On to version 2.0: This sawboard would double as a routerboard on the left side. Base made up of 2 lengths of 3/16” hardboard glued together. Guide on top would be 1”x2” aluminum rect. tube with a groove cut out for 4 feet,...

Lessons Learned #5: Cutting guides make the world go 'round

2006 days ago by sry | 6 comments »

As a beginning woodworker without a large shop full of tools, I’m was at first skeptical about my ability to get by and produce interesting things without tools like a table saw or band saw. One of the things that’s really helped me get by is the cutting guide. I built a massive 8’ long cutting guide for my Ryobi circular saw, which makes it about 1000 times easier to chop up plywood without being dependent on the table saw I don’t have. I decided this evening tha...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #12: Grinder Stand or Piece of Furniture?

142 days ago by PhilBello | 0 comments »

Having a shortage of bench space, I decided that I needed to create a space for the bench grinder, and not wanting to damage any walls in the apartment, I decided a dedicated Grinder Stand was called for, but not away floor storage space. After hunting for a while, I found what I was looking for on Woodstore.net it hardly reduced the floor space at all. To make this you only need half a sheet of 3/4” plywood, I used pine, as it was cheaper, and some scraps of birch ply for the top...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Kitchen cabinet doors

2064 days ago by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

I debated whether I should put this entry here or over at HomeRefurbers, but that site really hasn’t taken off yet, and the process of coming up with our kitchen cabinets is feeling a whole lot more like woodworking than it is home improvement. Although an upgrade from the 1 person 1947 kitchen will certainly be an improvement. My arm was good enough this weekend to play in the shop again. My main project was to mock up a prototype to some lightweight appliance lift ideas I̵...

Design Overkill - How to avoid scrapping the leftovers

992 days ago by WudWrkr | 3 comments »

I am going to make a few craft items and I need to crosscut some cedar 1×12x10’ lumber – I need a place to do it. Using my workbench and a roller stand seems like a good way to go, but I need a way to elevate the lumber so the bench top stays in tack. I could use the Rockler cookies, but I think I would rather build something myself and use some of those leftover parts I have laying around (you know, the ones that are just too good to throw out). ———...

Experience with EurekaZone and Toolup.Com

1946 days ago by bensaw | 6 comments »

So I’m getting geared up here and placed an order last week for a new Millwaukee circular saw with Diablo 40 tooth blade. I also ordered the EurekaZone rail system SGS-100. Had an issue with both orders. :-( The Diablo blade arrived missing a tooth. I have emailed Toolup.com on Saturday night (last night) and am awaiting a respose. The EurekaZone rail system arrived with a broken anti-splinter guard.I emailed them on Thursday regarding the issue and have yet to hear from them. ...

TV Stand #7: Cauls, jigs, molding and doors

949 days ago by Angela | 4 comments »

Bottom MoldingI cut a long piece of the African mahogany 3” wide. I original use ¾” but didn’t like the way it looked so I planed it down to 5/8”. I ran it through my router table using a Freud Roman Ogee router bit # 38362. I first cut the front piece. I used the same angles that I used on the main case. After cutting the side angles, the pieces didn’t fit based on the angles I cut them. When I glued the sides of the main case together the angles came out different from wha...

Random shop notes #5: Shopping, vising.

1353 days ago by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Got out on the town today, and picked up some small tools I need. Chisels, files, a 2 ft. level, a bevel. And I finally got around to taking the old blade off the circular saw my FIL gave me. I clamped the blade into the machinists vice I’ve got, gave the bolt a jolt of wd-40, and then went at it with a wrench. I’ll get some new blades later this month. I also found a nice local sawmill that will do small lot surfacing and carries local hardwoods; they’ll als...

Kitchen Cabinets #7: Whoops

1868 days ago by Dan Lyke | 0 comments »

With Yardbirds going out of business, I bought a bunch of stuff to run some new electrical (although even with the discount their wire was no cheaper than other sources, so I had to pick and choose), and in the process of picking conduit paths through the garage I cleaned out the shop. So yesterday I milled a whole bunch of wood into door frames. I’d picked up a bunch of eastern hard maple off of Craigslist, random sizes, about 5’; lengths, so I took the ones closest to my door...
