Work Bench "blogject"

2179 days ago by Daren Nelson | 21 comments »

I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....

"Don't Stress" glue ups

1415 days ago by dustbunny | 21 comments »

I got so tired of fighting with glueing up cutting boards.Is everything lining up ? Is there slipping ? One clamp at a time !!So I spotted these flooring jacks in the HF catalog...and I began to wonder.I bet that I could use these to clamp cutting boards together in hopefully one shot.I haven’t tried it yet, but I will let everyone know if there are problems.I am thinking this is going to work just fine.I may need to add regular clamps at the corners, we’ll see. I did h...

567 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

Hey guys and Gals, this weeks project is just a fun simple shop project with a twist. I decided to build a Router bit cabinet for the shop. Well that was the plan, then i started thinking about a way to make it a little more interesting.. Then it hit me, Why not make a Router bit cabinet with a Secret Compartment? I came up with a simple way of locking and unlocking the compartment. So one thing led to another and this is the results. Now the cabinet itself is not made of anything fancy. Sinc...

Evolution of my router planer #6: Version 2.0

996 days ago by TZH | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I said I would post a blog entry showing how I plane really big pieces using my router planer. Well, here goes. I started out with some really big cottonwood rounds (that’s my son in the first photo): I cut them into 5” to 6” thick slabs and had to figure out a way to plane them down to 3” to 4” thick to use as table tops for TV stands and coffee tables. That’s when I came up with the Big Boy Router Planer below: I just hap...

Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

1479 days ago by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...

1329 days ago by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

1909 days ago by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

1619 days ago by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...
