Tool thoughts #56: finally warm enough to get something done... & #facepalm moments

03-11-2014 06:08 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

pics to follow… my phone died and I’m still in the middle of things (came in to warm it up & get a charger cable). I’m finally getting to hanging my insulation out in the shop today. we’ve got temps in the 40’s finally… and while that’s not balmy to some, it is good enough for me. I picked up some lumbah for the project last week… but the thermometer kept reading just under 30°. That meant that IN the shop it would be about 20°. Today...

Woodshop Build #2: My Space

03-04-2014 12:59 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

my first blog entry: I made a plexiglass cross cut sled! & step by Video

03-01-2014 06:12 PM by MikesProjects | 5 comments »

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

Some useful jigs

02-20-2014 03:53 PM by Farrout | 3 comments »

I’m making some boxes and after changing the joint design multiple times, I decided to go with splined miter joints.This, of course, requires multiple miter cuts and a way to cut the spline slots. Here is the jig I made to cut the miters. It can also be turned around to make straight cuts. I made these supports to fit on my cross cut sled to cut the spline slots. There is no such thing as scrap, just pieces for future jigs.

Overkill Dog Gate

02-16-2014 09:47 PM by Rockindokken | 2 comments »

My lovely Fiance’s dog loves to wander about my house and pee if you’re not watching her, so we needed a way to contain the 10 lbs of Yorkie Fury. I do have to say she’s probably the quietest and laziest Yorkie I’ve ever met, so this gate didn’t need to be anything large. I have a Bearded Collie, but he’d never try to defeat a gate, he’s just not into making me upset. My fiance wanted to buy a dog gate online, GASP! I told her I had a pile of scra...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

02-05-2014 10:37 AM by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

Zero Clearance Insert for Ridgid 10" Sliding Compound Miter Saw

01-24-2014 02:57 PM by Garth | 1 comment »

I made a zero clearance insert for my Ridgid 10” sliding compound miter saw and I thought some others might be interested in it. I pulled the orange factory insert out and it was 0.250” thick. I started looking around for something close and then found a 5-gallon paint stirrer from HD was the right thickness. I glued three of them together and cut it to fit. Below are the pictures. Here is more information.

New Tools

01-18-2014 09:03 PM by Jerome | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a set of built in cabinets for two areas designated for them. I will do a big specifically on the project soon. Along the way I discovered that I did not have all the “necessary” tools for the job. The first realization occurred when I began cutting the base molding. My miter saw was just 7” and I needed a few more inches to cut the base molding. I could have used my table saw to cut it, but rather than going through the table of that, I looked on C...

Woodworking For Therapy #8: Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metalic

01-15-2014 11:16 PM by Steve Kreins | 12 comments »

Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metallic, YUK! I don’t mind the food tasting funny because it isn’t going to stay down that long anyway. But I was enjoying the smell and taste of sawdust, I guess I need to wear a dust mask, but that seems to take some of the fun out of woodworking. ;) Seriously, the Nurse Practitioner asked, “Any side effects yet?” I said, “Yea, my sawdust tastes like metal filings.” She said, “I beg your pardon? Sawdust?” I c...
