Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

17 hours ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

14 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

Buying Your Last Tool First

35 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 5 comments »

Buying Your Last Tool First I acquired my first shop space around 2 years ago. Once I moved into my shop, I began my quest to fill the shop with awesome power tools. This post will discuss the overarching rule I follow when buying my power tools, and some examples of tools I have purchased. My thought process about buying powertools is this: Buy your last tool first!!! What I mean by that is make your first tablesaw, bandsaw, router, jointer, etc the one that you want to be using when y...

That One Thing #1: That one thing.

71 days ago by fumehappy | 3 comments »

About two weeks ago, I was browsing craigslist and saw an estate sale listed for that Friday. It promised buckets of tools, machinist equipment, and industrial stuff. It didn’t start till 11, and I knew that wasn’t gonna fly since I needed to be to work at 8:30. And it was in the opposite direction.But Saturday morning rolled around, and I found I was dreaming about it all night. So I said, why not, i’ll try for sloppy seconds. My wife, having recently realized just how...

Drill press Power table

72 days ago by RICOCO | 3 comments »

As i get older I find some shop tasks tedious and difficult. Cranking my drill press table up and down is one of those tasks. In my wanderings on the internet I came across a drill press with an electric motor for the hand crank and I said to myself I think I can do that. A special thanks to Jerry at home shop machinist. And here are the result.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/n5hj9pr.jpg! Motor is from a hospital bed. The rest is scraps from the metal bin.Crank shaft and the...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

85 days ago by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...
