Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

09-25-2010 01:57 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...

Bedroom Set #2: Side panels allmost ready for assembly

09-20-2010 05:24 AM by sandhill | 20 comments »

I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

My Radial Arm Saw- Not just a cross cut saw

09-01-2010 11:00 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Ever since I bought my first house a few years ago I had always wanted a nice sized workshop in my 2 stall garage. This year I was able to really get going on it. My dad who is also a woodworker was kind enough to give me his Radial Arm Saw which he no longer used. It so happens this RAS is also the first big power tool I had ever used. I grew up watching my dad use this thing on a regular basis and when I got old enough he showed me how to use it and let me make some cuts. So in a way the sa...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: It's time for a cabinet meeting!

08-29-2010 02:26 AM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

The great cabinet build started in earnest on Thursday.  Before any cabinets got built, however, I had to wait for a little help to show up to cut the full sheets of plywood down.  While waiting I gave the shop a pretty good cleaning and even managed to organize my sheet good pile. I even manged to measure and label all of the partial sheets with their size, including thickness. With the layout of my shop, cleaning up this space was very important in order to have a clear path...

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #9: Getting benched and board (pegboard that is)

08-21-2010 08:10 PM by captkerk | 11 comments »

I finally got around to a little more work in the garage/shop. I started building a new workbench and I finally got some pegboard put up. First, the workbench. I wanted to rebuild my existing workbench to make the top a little bigger and so I could add a vise and bench dogs. As I was contemplating how to do this, a Shop Notes magazine came in the mail with a nice, inexpensive design that I thought would work well for me. Torsion box workbench I got started on it and it was coming ...
