Garage turned workshop.....the series #1: Guess what I got for Christmas?

01-07-2010 07:22 AM by ericandcandi | 15 comments »

Hi everyone…..I just finished placing my Christmas present from the “fam” in its new home. Its a DEWALT 734 planer. I built a slide-out in a section of my workbench so it will stow away without a problem. I used heavy duty slides but for weight concerns I installed a large castor. It works wonderful. I can run a very heavy board through without worrying about stressing the drawer out. You can just make out the castor I used under the drawer. After l...

Solar heat for the shop

01-06-2010 07:55 PM by Fireguy | 16 comments »

There has been a long running thread on heating your shop and several others on the same topic that I have been following for some time. I live in Wisconsin and have an unheated shop at the moment and very little gets done in the winter due to this. I am planning on insulation, new windows and doors and heat for next winter so I can work year around. But the heat source is another question, I have been a fire fighter for 20 years and do not want to burn down my shop (would never hear the...

I hope maybe my talent of burning that speci...

Random idea for a shop built rail-guided saw and router

01-06-2010 09:08 AM by Jeison | 2 comments »

Ok bear with me here, I just had this idea and I’m trying to crystalize it while I type (and its too cold in the shop to experiment)...Ok first of all, one of the first things I made for myself when I started woodworking was a set of straightedge guides for my circular saw and router. A wide chunk of 3/4” MDF with a MDF fence glued on top, and trimmed the edges to get a nice straight guide. Well, in hindsight that was a bad idea, for one thing the motor for my skilsaw rides abov...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #6: Adding Upper Storage Cabinets or Walls

01-03-2010 10:18 PM by cmckerliesr | 2 comments »

OK!After my last blog entry, I had a lot of good input on what to do to possibly add some sort of wall covering and to be able to hang upper cabinets. I had made a few comments later on saying what I may try. What is going on now, is first of course I can not hold anything to the inside of the can, while I drive a screw from the out side. So, I have not got this done yet. So I will just tell you what will happen, once I get my son or someone to come help me out. I am going to split a co...
