Building My Roubo Bench #2: (Mis)Adventures in Getting the Material

01-18-2012 04:37 AM by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

At some point in December, I decided I’d be building my bench out of Douglas Fir. As stated in Chris’s book, Doug Fir is stiff and moderately hard. It isn’t that heavy, but given the amount of material I’ll be using on the bench, the final product should be heavy enough. Also as recommended in the book, I realized that a big box store would be a fine place to get the lumber. 2×12s are readily available at every Home Depot and Lowes near me. I have a good tabl...

A phone call from Santa this morning

12-26-2011 12:29 AM by Trev_Batstone | 5 comments »

My step-son, who is a carpenter and fine woodworker (his full time career) phoned me this morning (Christmas day). We will be seeing him this evening for dinner at another relative’s place, so he asked me on the phone if I own a jointer yet, to which I replied “no”. He said he would bring me a Delta jointer to the dinner location this evening. I couldn’t believe my ears, but he said he has the jointer sitting in his workshop and it never gets used, so he is dona...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Building the shop #4: As the garage turns (into a woodshop!)

12-20-2011 07:46 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 7 comments »

Over the weekend I made a lot of progress on the shop clearing out two more steel shelving units, leaving only one to clear out and move out. As part of the continued purging, I decided to dismantle my second Shopsmith, give away the bench (I love FREE signs on stuff – it’s how I get rid of SO much stuff!!!) from the Shopsmith. I am keeping my first Shopsmith, for now, but as I acquire more tools I begin to think that the 6 foot long by 30” wide machine is a huge space drain...

Craftsman 6" Jointer, model # 103.20620 #1: My First Jointer!

12-19-2011 06:20 AM by jboehle | 21 comments »

I picked up this beauty for only $75 off Craigslist this weekend. Everything seems to be in good shape except for nicks on the blades about 4” out. It’s missing the blade guard for when you move the fence in, but other than that has everything else, as far as I can see. The power switch is attached with duct tape, but I will remedy that as well. Now for the tool p0rn!

The Maloof Library Series #10: Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table project - Pixar meets woodworking

12-19-2011 03:00 AM by ScottMorrison | 10 comments »

This is a small sample of my new woodworking project video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table.” Templates and video available for pre-order at finewoodworker.com. It is a totally new, and never before seen, type of video project (and pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself). Think Pixar meets woodworking. Completely 3D and presented with amazing details and animation that leave no room for error in your project. Everyone who has built one of my chairs (or any cha...
