Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #129: Work on the shop

07-09-2018 04:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I didn’t want to start on this job, but I wanted it done. The prep work and tearing apart the shop to do work on it is always a bit of a pain. Shops are never really “done” though, so continuing on with a slow but steady stream of upgrades I finally get that last 12’ of wall in the shop done. Now it is fully insulated and sheathed on the inside. Next will be putting it all back together. Someday I hope to get the proper electrical out there. Doing it in stages an...

More tools in the shop #5: Bandsaw scrap box on outfeed

07-08-2018 06:31 AM by Plasmon360 | 2 comments »

I have a wall behind my grizzly bandsaw and as I cut wood on it (primarily small pieces and such) the scraps fall behind the band saw and it is hard to reach to clean up the mess on the floor. So I built a box that attaches to the the back of the table. I drilled a hole on the cast iron (hopefully this is ok) and made a quick box from scrap pieces and attached at the outfeed of the band saw using piece of steel with holes drilled in it. I made sure the fence can still move back and forth. ...

More tools in the shop #4: Bandsaw storage

07-05-2018 05:22 PM by Plasmon360 | 2 comments »

My garage workshop has been getting very crowded. I am spending good amount of time trying to find things. I have been searching for places where I can store stuff near a particular tool. In this pursuit, I saw unutilized space inside my grizzly G0555LX 14 inch bandsaw tool stand. I thought I could make a drawer and put some of the tools and accessories that go with the bandsaw in it. The accessories include a crappy miter gauge that I rarely use, extra bearings, hex keys, wrench and blade...

Across the Bench from Charles #4: Campechy revival

07-01-2018 01:46 AM by Monte Pittman | 7 comments »

If any of you follow Charles’s videos, the current group is worth paying attention to. Background, a gentleman came to the shop with a bunch of parts for 3 chairs. The wood was from a tree on the family property that had been milled and air dried. So these chairs carry sentimental value. But after cutting the pieces he realized that he had made “some” mistakes. So in hopes of salvaging them, he brought them to Charles to finish. The style of the chairs is a Campeache (Thomas Jefferson chai...

Across the Bench from Charles #3: Devil's in the details - Part 2

06-30-2018 12:37 AM by Monte Pittman | 6 comments »

Box bodies were cleaned and sanded. One note sanding, if you damage your sandpaper on ROS sander like this, I recommend to change it. I have had it leave gouges in the wood. (IMHO). Profiles were cut on top and bottom plates. But remember that every surface needs to be properly cleaned. So for the round cuts, you can use a dowel of matching radius or get a set of these rubber profiles. Wrap sandpaper over it to clean the profile. Do not roll it over the square cut edge...

Create a very smart and simple template

06-23-2018 10:27 AM by Project of the day | 0 comments »

Yesterday I wrote about how to build storage boxes in a very fast and efficient way. Important tools to creating these boxes so incredibly fast are my planer/moulder witch is planing the box sides. To make it easy and quick to set up the planer I create this style templates for my molding. To explain how I do, I made a video about it.Always make the template after the steel holder instead of the steel, leaving problems with round edges on the steel and obtaining a straight and fine edge for r...
