Intro & Shop Tour

03-15-2014 11:56 AM by iamcliff | 6 comments »

I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo

TV Stand #9: Finishing and finishing

01-09-2012 03:09 AM by Angela | 1 comment »

Finishing and finishingI have completed my TV stand and it came out better than I hoped. I learned a lot from this project and can’t wait to make my next piece of interior furniture. FinishingI wish I could say everything went off smoothly but I had a few problems finishing the project. One major problem was splotching, where one area stains dark than another. I also had a hard time learning to fill the wood. I tested about 12-15 different stains and dyes until I came across two of the...

TV Stand #8: Raised Panel Doors, Soss Invisible Hinges, Table Top Edge, Getting Ready for the Finish

10-17-2011 03:14 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

Yes it’s been over a month since I’ve posted an update but I’m still working on my TV stand. Raised Panel Doors Since my last blog, I finished the raised panel portion of my doors. This is the first time I’m doing a raised panel and I was having a problem getting the panel flush with the frame. To correct this problem I disassembled the panel router bit and raised the back cutter. Now I would be able to remove more of the back. Now the panel fit exactl...

TV Stand #1: Progess is very slow...cutting the new plywood, the angles and the splines

08-09-2011 12:10 AM by Angela | 1 comment »

This is actually the second in the series but I didn’t understand how the blog system works. The first in the series is a separate blog entitled TV stand. I will eventually put this on my website in more detail but here’s a shorter version of some of the problems and success of making my TV stand. I wish I had some plans or I had more knowledge about building furniture. Because I don’t the project just isn’t moving along very fast. What started me on this project was ...

My Small Shop Tips, Tricks and Jigs #3: Home-Based Shop Realities and Considerations

04-24-2011 04:43 AM by Ryan Bruzan | 0 comments »

I recently introduced my two cents in a group called Home Based Professional Shops. Since I can’t even remember, every time I’ve heard the phrase “home based business,” I would think things like Medical Billing, AVON and Mary Kay, etc., but for some weirdly odd reason, I never thought of me as a home based business owner. It never really dawned on me that there are a lot of other hard-working men and woman whose place of employment is their home, whether full-time, par...

2/3s Workshop garage design Layout and... keep the Misses happy

02-03-2011 03:59 PM by steliart | 14 comments »

My research on the net shows that a typical garage size (although a bit tight on the cars) is 20×20 feet.We would be lucky if we could have the whole space in our disposal to turn it into a woodworking workshop. Unfortunately this is not the case; there are other things which go into the garage, and the Misses won’t be happy throwing her stuff out or other times the garage is turned into the laundry area. Hmm you do not want to go to work with a stain on your shir...
