Roubo Cabinet #14: Gang of Four Drawers - Sides

07-19-2011 06:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 8 comments »

The Roubo Cabinet has been in work now since March. Weather is incredibly oppressive this month, with temps in Southern Illinois routinely in the mid-90s. And the humidity? As I’m fond of saying, “At least it’s a wet heat…” My shop is not climate controlled so going inside to work lately means sweat to the point of dripping within the first 5 minutes. I wipe down tools a lot, and myself too. Yuck. But this project is still in OPEN status, so turn on the squirrel fan, turn up the radio and let...

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Rogue Fine Living #3: Bed of Power

12-22-2011 10:56 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...

Fastner & Small Parts Storage

06-05-2011 06:46 AM by Eric in Florida. | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Compound Miter Saw Features

05-27-2011 01:51 AM by rance | 2 comments »

A CMS purchase can be made based on one or more features: Accuracy/portability/cost/cut capacity/floor space(is it a wall hugger?), single vs. double bevel, and more. You most likely cannot get all these features on a single saw. You make sacrifices for the features ‘you think’ you want. In General-Many of these saws excel at one or two functions. The new Bosch saw’s “claim to fame” is that it is a wall hugger. The fact that it looks so sexy is just a byproduc...

"Crazy Generous" Gifts for the Workshop

05-23-2011 02:28 AM by robbinscabin | 4 comments »

Have you ever walked away from your Workshop after a project without doing the proper cleanup? Here’s why that’s a really bad idea! We had spent so much time building the log bed that we just didn’t bother to clean up. And after nearly a week of avoiding the basement entirely I was starting to feel pretty guilty…one day I even took my project out to the front yard to “work in the sunshine.” In reality I was avoiding the mess! But I wasn’t the o...

Woodworking projects under way. #3: Wood Magazine clamshell cabinet under way!

05-18-2011 02:34 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

In my seemingly never ending quest for shop organization, not to mention skill building, I am well underway with the construction of my clamshell cabinet. The design is the one in the Wood Magazine Best Home Workshop Ideas special interest publication (2009 issue, same thing as 2011 issue). At this time, all of the plywood pieces are cut to size, and I must say that I am a HUGE fan of stop blocks now. My recent move of my miter saw to the strong tie workbench, has permitted me to clamp sto...
