shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #1: Zero Clearance Insert

08-13-2013 04:17 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Well last night I was piddlin round with an idea to make a ripping fence/jig to attach to my circ saw. The one that came with it apparently grew feet and walked away, when i was on my last boat trip. I have some 9 and 10 foot long SYP 2×10-12s i want to rip the pith out of for a future project. Longest board i can try to rip on my table saw is 8’ give or take an inch. I was trying to rip out some ~1/4” strips to frame out the circ saw base on a piece of plywood. One of the st...

Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

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

12-15-2013 08:10 PM 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...

My 5 projects #3: Lots of legs, work on the workbench, and where did this come from?

05-02-2012 06:15 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

I’ve actually managed to be busy lately despite wrapping up some plans from an archaeological site for a friend. First things first, I’ve managed to wrap up the creation of the legs for the portable countertop. I’d like to get some brass gas fittings to turn on the ends but so far no luck finding ones that fit around here. The lets are about 1.25” diameter and nothing seems to quite be that size. The fourth leg was turned, all four were then put back on the lathe fo...

bench vice and starting out

04-21-2014 11:21 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

Neck Thru V Guitar

03-07-2010 03:12 PM by lugnut | 12 comments »

Well, I bit the bullet and purchased some equipment. I got an 8” jointer/planer combo from Jet and a 9” bandsaw from Skil. Probably none the best stuff, but live and learn. My goal here is to develop my woodworking skills to a higher level concentrating on guitar construction. The task at hand is to plane the wings to the same thickness as the neck. The wings are basswood and I’m thinking I should just get them ‘close’ to leave a little room for sanding. W...

New Workshop #3: Update 2

06-07-2013 09:11 PM by Matthew | 2 comments »

As I have been away at college, this is the first chance I’ve had to organize and set up the new shop. So, here are several shop projects completed over the past few days. First up, the clamp rack. As all of us are aware, we couldn’t be woodworkers without several clamps. The problem is in finding the best way for each of us to organize them. Here is my version: Next is just an organizational item made out of a re-purposed kitchen cabinet. Just a place...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Pocketbook Clamp

08-30-2009 05:21 AM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 8 comments »

I have 2 Wolfcraft corner clamps listed at $22.99 but I got them for $18.49 each and I have been satisfied with their performance. Today I ventured into HF (Shhhh some Pros might hear) and saw the same clamps for $6.95 each. The differnce seems to be no Wolfcraft Logo. See for yourself. I bought 2.
