My Ultimate Workbench Build #5: Joint, plane and repeat....

07-16-2011 07:54 AM by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

Well, with the boards for the top cut to rough length and rough thickness, and the general layout for the top decided on, it’s time to start squaring up the lumber and getting ready to glue the top all together. I started out with jointing one face and one edge flat and square on the 6” general jointer. I set up a roller stand to the exact height on both the infeed and outfeed side. It’s time consuming, but squaring all the lumber is probably the single most important step i...

006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

One blow of a mallet

04-23-2012 11:47 AM by Chris Campbell | 20 comments »

turned this: into this: a close-up of the damage: So, I really like using the iron hold-down clamps that go into dog holes on my workbench. I almost always tap them in a few times to get a good hold. This time, however, I got lazy. I was holding down a piece of wood on the workbench to cut, and put this in the dog hole. I decided to, instead of my usual practice, just give it one good solid smack to set it. It quietly and neatly snapped right in two! Is this s...

Evolution of my router planer #6: Version 2.0

07-28-2011 05:31 AM 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...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 7 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Works for me #4: Horizontal Pipe Clamp Rack

02-21-2010 10:53 PM by Dave Owen | 14 comments »

When you need pipe clamps, they’re great, and they need to be handy – but when you need them only occasionally, they can really get in the way! Hanging them vertically works well provided you have a vertical space available. Unfortunately, I didn’t, so yesterday’s project was a horizontal rack hung near the ceiling. The rack’s not elegant, and it’s certainly not pretty – but then neither are pipe clamps. The main thing is – it works! ...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

05-03-2013 06:39 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

07-04-2012 02:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...
