Building a Bench Rest for Wood Turning #1: Genesis of the Idea and the Basic Design

05-29-2016 05:28 PM by RichCMD | 1 comment »

I am one of those people who have trouble standing for very long. Although I love woodturning, standing at the lathe for a long period can become very painful. A back support helps some, but even with the support I can still have problems. Taking ibuprofen can extend how long I can stand, but I dislike routinely taking it as it can be hard on the stomach. I first came upon the idea of using a bench rest in an article by Ernie Conover in the May/June 2014 issue of Woodworkers Journal...

Use a piece of scrap wood to get 90 degrees while edge jointing by hand

05-21-2016 02:06 AM by Patrick | 4 comments »

This really helped me. Hope it helps you guys. I just screwed 2 pieces of wood together to form a right angle that my plane could rest and ride on while jointing. The result was 90 degrees dead on. Watch the video here.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/o7i91zj.jpg!

Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #1: Basic design layout

05-16-2016 09:31 PM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

My wife has some books, magazines and a few other things she uses often and they tend to sit on the table or off to the side of where she normally sits to read. She asked me to build her a magazine stand in a similar style to the Aurora night stand I recently finished. So I took up the challenge to do something in a similar style which would have obvious visual ties to the Aurora table, but not a copy. I spent some time looking through my reference books and gathering my ideas. Then I d...

Slow Days at the Shop. #10: New and Improved Tool Posts for my Tool Grinder

05-11-2016 11:32 PM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

Years ago, I bought a bench grinder at a discount import tool and surplus store that predated Harbor Freight stores. I was working on a very tight budget but I wanted a dedicated grinder for sharpening chisels and drill bits. This grinder is rather heavy with a cast iron base and the store owner let me take it out of the box to confirm that it ran smooth. It ran very smooth, in fact, and twenty dollars later I was at home repairing my chisels. All I have ever used this grinder for is sh...

TV stand #3: Acquirements

05-11-2016 03:21 PM by TripleXDom | 0 comments »

So finally had gotten my wood last week. The pictures portray my ideas and possible measurements I have that would best relate to the the size of the plywood board. I decided to do a 16 in width, 42 inch length, and 32 in height. The picture of another stand/shelf, is to help get an idea of what I actually want to create. Mine is a little taller so it would have up to 3 shelves and another door on the other side.

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…
