Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
Yo whats up everybody I just got a router table that my grandfather wasnt using and it is a shop mate 5 amp router. It is a fixed base and it came with a table. It came with a flush trim bit I think. I think the collet is a 1/4 in but im not sure.

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #13: Using steel rebar for a lumber rack, and Expanding my shop.
I’ve been way to crowded in my shop, especially since I went from a radial arm saw to a table saw. A radial arm saw works fine in a narrow shop, because it’s against the wall Plus adding a thickness planer. I haven’t use the automobile side of my garage for years now. About all its been used for is to accumulate things.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a rough sketch of my floor plan. I plan to keep the partition down the cent...
While this exercise was conducted on a 520 system it should also work with any of the shopsmith systems that make use of the connecting tube system. This experiment is to see how a main table would work as a floating main table. What is a floating main table you ask? In its simplest terms it is a main table with the trunnions and below removed. What advantages might that offer? Well I assume that is why you are reading this so lets get started with the project. I have been thinking ...
I primarily make small woodstuffs (my name keychains being the most popular) and I feel really guilty buying a large board of some beautiful exotic or domestic hardwood and then hacking it up into pieces that I can use. I feel that the board should go into a fine piece of furniture. I then had an idea to email a request to internet lumber dealers for shorts and cut-offs that might otherwise be tossed into a landfill. I also hoped to add to my selection of woods for my customers with some i...
It has been mentioned by at least one other LJ that since there seem to be more than a few of us here in Texas, particularly coastal Texas, that a Texas LJs get together might be a good idea. And since I am sure it is more than just me that has lots of scrap hardwood, partcularly pecan and mesquite bits and pieces, that maybe we can do a good old fashioned Texas BBQ… LOML and I are looking for an excuse to head out somewhere like Lake Texana anyway…. I make a mean Brisket, and ...
An Opportunity to Share While creating some detail mouldings for cabinet doors and drawers, I realized this would be a great opportunity to share how I handle these smaller pieces. Simple But Safe The methods that I use are very simple but create safe handling in a small production setting. My work table is not a traditional style woodworking bench, it has a solid laminate top without bench dog holes. I like the clean solid surface for the type of work that I do. This would...
I have two of these that worked fine until the fixed end snapped off. being a cheapskate i kept them around figuring they might be good for something. cleaning up yesterday i looked at them and an idea struck me: why not use them as holdfasts? here it is: what remains should be plenty strong since it’s better reinforced and doesnt have as much torque applied to it. the dud end stays in place and is held beneath the bench through 3/4” dog holes. the only other modification (...
I need to make a watertite wooden box for my waterstones and can’t seem to find the information I’m looking for. I believe I saw this on the Woodwright’s Show but not for sure. Here’s what I saw “by whoever” they used a wire or thin strip of wood and “mashed” it into one half of the joint so it made a groove so the “wire” was flush with the surface of the wood, then assembled the joint and the wood expanded forcing the “wire&...
