Shop storage projects #3: Drawing up a Plan

01-03-2017 02:26 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Not every day that I will try to draw up a plan, usually done inside my overworked brain. Sometimes, though, I need to make a few squiggles on some paper, to help find what size of parts are needed. Such is the case for the Chest o’Drawers project. 5 drawers have been decided on. 2 from 1×8 x 8’, 2 from a couple of 1×6 x 8’ and one 1×4 x8’ . Each 8’ plank will make all the parts for one drawer, except for the 1/4” plywood bo...

Shop storage projects #2: The Dungeon Remodel, the "before"

01-02-2017 11:02 PM by bandit571 | 10 comments »

I start tearing things up and out. Took a few pictures of what I need to change down there, in an attempt to at least have some room to stand. The Dryer that needs to leave.. It will be going up and out to a salvage yard, for “Brunch Money” I may keep the motor, IF it is any good. Above the dryer is a few things I cannot move.. Like a vent from the working dryer ( the Boss’s Laundry room is here, as well.) the light fixture for the laundry room, and a Gas meter....

Maple and Cherry Box #1: First Blog - The (Mis)adventures of my Maple and Cherry Box

01-02-2017 06:11 PM by Cheapguy82 | 0 comments »

Over the past month, I’ve gotten into making boxes. The ones that I made so far have let me try some new skills/tools out and have let me practice finishing methods. The latest box that I am working on is much the same… Since I have been making boxes for others, I decided to try one out for myself. Basically, I wanted to try some new stuff out that would look really nice if it came off, but if it got screwed up, I have no deadline or person to disappoint…so I figure that ...

2016 Project - Expand the Woodworking Shop #2: The Assembly/Finishing Room

12-30-2016 09:25 AM by DrDrewInOhio | 3 comments »

Started Winter 2016 – Finished (nothing is ever finished in a shop) Spring 2016 There is much more detail on our MeetUp site about the expansion. Studwalls – if you have twisted studs… use a parallel clamp to coerce them into being straight while nailing them. Electric… the easy way. Run the romex first… mark location on floor… hang drywall… cut out for the boxes afterwards. Painting the Walls and Floor...

Super Gripper Pusher Simplified

12-26-2016 02:20 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

Hi Guys, Today I wanted to present you with the simplified version of a Gripper I made earlier I used plexiglass for the frame because it is strong, light and less bulky than plywood The rest of the Gripper is made of Baltic birch plywood I used the sticky anti-skid strips for the legs (homedepot)And made a simple eccentric wheel to act as a balancing plate on the original grr-ripper You can see the details and dimensions in this 3.5 min video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D...

Daves Workshop #3: Using a cheap Harbor Freight riveter for awesome dust collection ductwork joints.

12-20-2016 03:01 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

If you, like me have been putting your dust collection system together with screws, STOP IT, those screws stick into the duct work and can snag stringy stuff and clog things up for you. Not a good thing. In this video I show you a great, serviceable alternative to screws. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...
