Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

03-08-2013 12:53 AM by dj1096 | 2 comments »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

Enclosed Cherry Raised Panel Bench #1: Prepping the wood and parts

03-07-2013 10:11 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 10 comments »

I am making a raised panel bench seat that is enclosed for the bedroom. As always, storage is at a premium at our place. I’m making this bench to go along a long wall will let us sit to put on our socks and still have a storage space. In my mind it will look like this. It’s just a sketch and that’s how I usually start. The length will be 54 inches and the height 20 inches. Since it’s actually a sitting bench it will be quite squat as a chest would be much taller.. ...

Three New Projects

02-23-2013 05:05 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

Cheap TV Table: Aprons are here!

02-21-2013 07:13 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

I spent part of today, getting a few 1×4s ready to become aprons on the table. They had been sitting out in the van for over a month, freezing their knots off. Brought them in to the Dungeon shop to warm up awhile. laid them out on the clothes dryer, in fact One of the four short pieces is elsewhere. Actually, it was in a vise, getting a little trim work Oh boy, a board with…..Charactor! Those are cracks, not pencil marks. Took a hand plane for a spin on the f...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Cheap TV Table: the top

02-20-2013 03:25 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

The two planks that made up the top, were a bit cupped, gluing them up into a top didn’t help out much. Although I took the top out of the clamps I still kept them handy. I used two of the pipe clamps to hold the top steady whilest i did a little flattening The one face wasn’t too bad, so just a wide Jack plane to level the field, and a smoother to, well, smooth things out Flipped the top over, as I wanted both faces cleaned up. I hadn’t decided which face wo...

Another Cheap Table, for a TV this time.

02-19-2013 01:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laid out a few junkie boards. Well one was junkie, anyway. Pretty, ain’t? Needed to scrub away the junk on the outside, so I could at least see where I was cutting.. Little scrub plane was taking too long, so I got out a slightly bigger one Clamps might get in the way on a cut, so a couple 2” long screws to hold it in place, for my saw to do a rip cut I ripped a blank off the plank, turned the plank around to the other “good” side, and ripped again. ...

Workbench Build #10: Finished cutting the top and started planning out the wagon vise..

02-17-2013 11:25 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

FINALLY! Finished rough dimensioning of the wood for the top. In the process have become good friends with my Skill Saw.. even though it is only the cheap 12A model it is a beast and a work horse lol. I have also decided to cheat and count it as a “had tool” since I hold it in my hand and push it with my hand lol.. so this is still mostly hand tool built so far! Rough dimensions of the top are 2 5/8” X 23 1/2” x 75” and that will reduce down a bit after I s...

Workbench Build #9: Finally Making Saw Dust!

02-17-2013 01:52 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

After a bit of hemming and hawing over how to rip this wood to size and exactly what size to rip it to I have finally started to cut wood! I measured them all out and I can either get a 16” top with a 3.5” thickness or a 24” top with a 2.5” thickness ao I have decided to go with the wider thinner top with a tool tray. I am still trying to decide on a tool try in the middle or a plane stop in the center with a tool tray on the outside. Anyone with experience with t...
