Table Saw Restoration #1: Intro and Cleaning Up the Top

11-15-2016 01:44 PM by Jared Tohlen | 4 comments »

This is my first post or utterance on this site, so bear with me while I get in the swing of things… I’ve always wanted to get into woodworking so I can build useful and practical things with my own hands. Within the last few months I’ve come into a host of woodworking tools and machinery, most of which were simply given to me once I expressed interest. These items include: a Delta spindle sander, old craftsman dual disc/belt sander, a vintage Buffalo Tool drill press, a ...

The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

A little update before I try to catch up...

So I have fallen WAY behind on posting the projects as I complete them. So, before I try to catch up on all the blogs and projects I need to upload we’ll give an overview… The first photo is what my garage usually looks like. (Like a sawdust bomb explosion mess) And this is where we are today….ah…so much better. Gene, I know I should not touch the pallets but I could not help myself…I just needed a tool rack… This will be the shelf/drawers ...

Shop Update #1: Garage Upgrade

08-06-2011 03:47 AM by Dave | 5 comments »

I do my woodworking in the garage and when I started it only had a single 15 amp 110 volt circuit, two light bulbs, and garage doors that were low enough that I bumped into them constantly whenever I moved boards around. Most of us have been there at one point and it worked well enough for me but last summer I was sidelined from the shop while my collar bone was healing (doctor’s orders – no woodworking) so I figured I might as well use the ole’ woodworking budget to have...

Getting my garage workshop together #1: Shop Layout Ideas

Hi LumberJocks! I’ve just recently joined LJ after being a long-time reader. Thanks to everyone who participates in the discussions here. Your wisdom and experience is invaluable, and you are are generous to take the time to share. You can check out my page to learn more about me and my shop, but in a nutshell I am a fairly amateur woodworker working to set up my 2-car garage into a functional workshop. We’ll keep 1 car in most of the time, and I need to get set up to build ...

Shop Renovation #4: Almost back to where I began - new photos

06-24-2010 06:21 AM by HokieMojo | 4 comments »

Sometimes, to go forward, you need to take a few steps back. The last couple entries documented the steps backward; removing fixtures from walls, piling everything in the center of the garage so I could work around the edges, losing my tools in the mess, etc. In this post I start to put things back together. Here is my updated to do list: To Do (bold items are complete as of this blog posting): 1) Clean up and trash unused items/unusable scrap2) Consolidate everything in the center ...
