Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #8: One door done..

06-23-2017 12:36 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And one to go. Last weekend, I was away from the shop for a while. Had some tools to rehab. I went and got a few supplies for this Pantry Project. Turned out I needed a couple more items, more on that later. Ok, plan was to rip one of the 1×10s right down the middle. Not enough room in the shop….6’ board…cut it down to 5’1”.....much better. Bandsaw to do the rip. Needed to cut another 1×10 to that 61” length. Joint an edge, appl...

L-Shaped Desk #4: The fire, it burrrrrns!

05-29-2017 08:09 PM by SauceMan | 1 comment »

I want to keep this quick because it’s almost 1pm and I haven’t started yet. I got a new blade and a new belt to put into my table saw, but I really want to get working on my desk. Yesterday was a pretty productive day. I feel like every time I take 8 quarter steps forward, I take 4 quarter steps back. (little woodworking joke for you guys, you can thank me later). Last weekend I got this Diablo blade for my new table saw and spent a fair amount of time trying to square m...

Shop stuff #93: Another mail/key organiser.

05-17-2017 02:30 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My ex-wife saw the one I made for my niece and wanted one too. So I made one for her. A variation on a theme. I found some nice pieces of walnut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1J8l6i7noA

L-Shaped Desk #2: Doesn't look exactly like an L...

05-16-2017 06:46 AM by SauceMan | 1 comment »

There’s a picture of my completed desktop. I made it over the weekend, leaving the rough lumber in my shop for a week before I started tearing into it. I think it’s very close to the original measurements in my SketchUp plans, maybe off by a quarter of an inch or so. If you look at the grain, you’ll see pretty much all the parts are cut with 45 degree cuts, though you may have thought it would be easier to use square cuts for the L. The reason I did it this way is ...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

4 inch jointer restored

05-01-2017 08:15 PM by metolius | 6 comments »

A neighbor passed on his Rockwell 37-130 4 inch jointer to me last fall. I really liked the compact size and metal stand, but it was in barn-find shape. On/off through the winter I worked it over with new blades; new 1/2hp motor with pulley; new link belt; replaced wiring and switch, added chip collection; a mobile base; fresh paint; and polished the beds. For personal touch, a wooden pulley guard replaced a bent sheet metal. The wood top is only a skirt to cover misc holes in the to...

Venues #2: Video Interview with local reporter

04-24-2017 07:27 PM by Jerry | 37 comments »

As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth. I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me. View on YouTube
