Saw vise build

233 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...

Toy Table Side Notes

233 days ago by Siegel_KenEvil | 0 comments »

I needed better lighting for my varnish application for the “Toy Table” build. The clamp on my old halogen lamp didn’t work very well in many situations. By drilling a hole at the end if a bar clamp, I was able to replace the original clamp with a bar clamp. It worked great. You may notice my Christmas tree in the background of some of the pictures from the “Toy Table” build. It’s decorated with ten 1.5” plasma balls. These are 12V devices int...

Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

241 days ago by PurpLev | 9 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #15: Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year to One and All!

243 days ago by PhilBello | 1 comment »

I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #14: Table Saw Taper Jig

249 days ago by PhilBello | 1 comment »

When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...

The Harbor Freight Experiment Series #2: Not enough clamps!

250 days ago by paxorion | 1 comment »

For part 2 of my series, I want to share how I tackled the problem of “not enough clamps!” early on in my woodworking adventure. When we a lot of something and at a very cheap price, there’s no better option (according to capitalism) than to outsource it. The first time I walked into a Harbor Freight, it was actually completely by chance when my wife was at Jo-Ann. I remember looking at the section housing all of the clamps and thought “why in the world would anyo...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

250 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Cutting Boards? How hard can it be??

261 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, I had a couple scraps of Black Walnut sitting around the shop. Also had what was left from a Black Cherry floor joist ( From an old barn tear down) Both were being abused by every new-to-me handplane that came into the shop. Decided to try and make SOMETHING out of them, before they wound up as just a pile of shavings. Edges were planed square and ready for glue-ups. Didn’t have a way to make slimmer pieces, so I just used the scraps as is. Got a slab out o...

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

266 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...
