Underway again...finally #14: Sidetracked - but it's a good thing, really, it is!

11-30-2017 12:24 AM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

No, I didn’t get anything done on the mobile table saw and cabinet base.Yes, I got sidetracked – but it was a good thing! REALLY! Started off looking for 2×3’s to act as connecting pieces between the cabinets. Ran into this mess:and this:and this:Seriously – can you find the 8-foot long 2×3’s? It took me over 5 minutes and I’m the one who put it “there”. So, I sat down and thought – ”This has to be fixed. Wasting time...

Just for Fun... #99: Might I Miter?

11-29-2017 01:02 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

So there we were, walking through Sears, looking for some clothing…As is usual with a Sears visit, I ended up wandering to the tool department; specifically, their Miter Saw line up…From small to large, it’s always been fun for me to imagine getting one of those, and to imagine making Mitered box corners…Debbie came up behind me and asked if I liked any of them, and then further fueled the desire for one by asking if I needed one, adding that “Christmas is coming...

Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 4 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...

Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

Underway again...finally #8: Actually made cuts today

11-08-2017 01:13 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Yes, you read the title correctly. I actually made cuts today. After examining the smallest/shortest of 4 palletized plywood pieces, I decided to experiment with it – why gamble with the biggest, right? We’ll jump to the end of day pic first to provide context for the rest of the entry.Okay, so that’s where I wound up…the mockup is upside down though. The red arrows show fork lift tine cutouts in 2×4’s that I decided to “salvage” by filling th...

A little time off #4: Dovetails cleaned up, lid is done..

11-07-2017 04:31 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And even a PIP!Dovetails were planed down flush with the sides… Once all the corners and edges looked good, I could set up the Stanley 45 as a bead cutter.. As I wanted a pair of beads run all the way around… Started on the ends first, then the sides, reset the fence a bit, and go around again.. Beads had to be low enough for a sliding lid..saw cuts were made.. Down to the top of the bead. mitre cuts on one end, then a plunge cut the split off a “handle̶...

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails.. Just the Usual Suspects….Laid out some pins, since I do pins first.. Went to set up the Shop Stool, so I could sit while I work… This is where it normally sits at, when I am running a saw.. This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube
