Work Shop Organization #1: Power Tool Storage

01-01-2015 02:15 PM by Nate66 | 1 comment »

In trying to keep my workshop organized and clutter free so I can work at my bench without having to search for tools, I found a definite need for somewhere to keep my power tools besides in their original boxes. Their original boxes keeps them organized, however, it makes them less accessible and frankly a pain in the rear to unpack and repack the tool each time it is used. Also the original boxes take up a lot of storage space when you have a confined space to work in to start with. ...

New "bench' for a router table

12-13-2014 08:01 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Last summer, I picked up a router “table” by SKIL at a garage sale. $20 with everything BUT a router Later on, picked a B&D 1/4” Industrial all metal router. Managed to assemble the two together But, there were a couple problems. First, this thing is sitting ON my tool chest. Secondly, it is too short to set on the floor. Had some metal 3×3 from an old bed frame. Cut the two pieces down into four “legs” @ 27-1/4” long. Had some ...

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...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #5: Got the Ceiling Connection on the Hinge Side Completed

11-10-2014 02:06 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...

Ultimate China Cabinet #1: The Start

10-27-2014 02:08 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Beginning of this year my wife asked if I would build her a cabinet for her china and dish collection. I think she was channeling Martha Stewart as she has several sets of 16 place settings (i.e., needed to build a super-sized china cabinet). The original objective was to have flush mounted doors with push open doors. Below is the carcass building sequence. The project uses 3/4 birch plywood and 1×4 boards with adjustable feet for the base. I used my assembly table to cut and as...

Clamp Cart #1: Quick Frameup

10-27-2014 02:58 AM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a ...

10-20-2014 11:53 PM by Brad | 2 comments »

You can review this article and others at my blog www.bradfordwoodworking.blogspot.com I cover woodworking , wine, cigars and more. Since it’s been quite awhile since my last post I looked around my shop at the various items to review and discuss and decided to focus on one of my favorite/best purchases in the past few years… and while I wish it were a Sawstop that day has not yet come. I’m talking about upgrading my drill/drivers from an old worn out Craftsman drill to s...

NOT your average Screen Door: Assembly time

10-17-2014 06:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...
