The Outdoor Workbench?

03-28-2011 05:34 PM by nobuckle | 15 comments »

What’s the outdoor workbench? Well, not stating the obvious, it would be an all weather workbench. I don’t have room in my shop for a full length workbench, so I thought about making one from Trex brand decking materials. In theory it should work. If I am correct, Trex decking materials can be machined just like wood, although I would not run it through my planer. When I say all weather please understand that the bench would be placed on a covered porch out of the rain and sn...

New Addition to workshop!

03-27-2011 07:49 AM by JohnAjluni | 6 comments »

the other day I was asked to be a YouTube Partner and I need to get some more views and subscribers to become a partner so please watch my video and if possible subscribe!!! Yesterday I built a little table that I can use to assembly my small projects. This table ended up so sturdy I ended up on top of the table jumping up and down with 10lbs dumbbells in each hand! I way about 159lbs so that a lot of force!! It is perfectly level and all I used to make this table was some 2×4’s...

Saddle / Tack Caddy #1: Saddle / Tack Caddy Design

03-27-2011 03:32 AM by RandyMorter | 12 comments »

My wife sent me an email at work on 3/25/2011, asking if I didn’t think I should build her a saddle / tack caddy. Even though she’s had a couple of horses in the almost 25 years we’ve been together, I had no idea what she was talking about. Knowing that, the email contained a picture of an example of what she was talking about from “for the barn”. I found another one or two examples online to compare. This looked like a good project for me – it’...

SPIRAL DESIGN #6: Hexaspiral - The triangulation way

03-26-2011 03:25 PM by BertFlores58 | 11 comments »

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it. Take a good look of following designs: THE DIFFERENT COLOR AND BIGGER TRIANGULATIONS. THE BLACKHOLE—The black and white in smaller strips In a way, it looks easy to construct however, creating the acute angle of less 5 deg is difficult. Here are the steps I made: STEP 1 – Make a hexa...

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade) Water Base Pre-Stain Conditioner

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced produ...

A Woodworker's Bag of Tricks

03-23-2011 09:18 PM by Darrell Peart | 10 comments »

In woodworking, there is much to be learned from books. But not all knowledge is to be found there. Many “tricks of the trade” never make it to print, but instead, exist as sort of a vernacular knowledge base that is conveyed from person to person “on the job”.Adding to my “woodworking bag of tricks “has been a lifelong pursuit. I have never reached a point, nor will I ever, where I can say “I know it all”. What I can say is “This is the best way I know at this time, until I discover or learn...

Mounting a Vega Utility 26 fence to a Bosch PTS 10 table saw

03-22-2011 03:55 PM by Kellence | 3 comments »

I live in France and a few years ago purchased a 10 inch Bosch PTS 10 table saw. The PTS 10 is a scaled down version of the Bosch 4000 sold in the US. The PTS 10 is a good saw. It has enough power at 220 volts (1400 Watts) and the blade is very precisely square to the miter slots. Here is a picture of it when I bought it. It has a sliding table to the left of the blade and a slide-out out feed table notched to accept the sliding table. Further, there is a slide-out support on the ...
