Life as an Amateur Woodworker #69: Towel Rack

01-26-2016 01:04 AM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The weather here in Colombia is such that, even when it is winter it remains at least warm, we have no heating, and drying clothes, bedding etc. is no problem, we have a covered drying area outside, but after a shower, my towel until now, has been draped over anything available upstairs, where it has dried but looked unsightly, it was time to do something about it. I pondered on design, as I had some 1”dowel and plywood, but in the end went with trusty 2×4!! For the first time I...

Tool thoughts #31: Happy Birthday - the report

08-15-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 11 comments »

Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...

Milwaukee or Jet sliding compund mitre?

08-30-2012 12:24 PM by mbhcustoms | 7 comments »

I have an older Porter Cable 12’ compound mitre saw, which I have gotten excellent service from and plan to keep. I am putting together a new workshop and would like to add a good 12’ sliding compund. I have seen good reviews on the Milwaukee but not much on the Jet. I don’t care much about the fancy electrical mitre guage or lights on the Milwaukee, as I tend not to be hard on equipment and don’t think they will benefit me or last. I can’t find much to read abou...

End Table project #3: Frame and panel work

07-26-2015 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #14: Table Saw Taper Jig

12-17-2013 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...

First self designed piece of furniture #1: Almost built, getting close to the finishing stage

11-29-2009 04:09 AM by drfixit | 2 comments »

This is the first peice of furniture I have designed and built. It is a small table to sit between my parents two recliners. The slide out drawer will contain a small trash can that can be hidden when not in use. It is made of red oak. Trying to match some of the furniture thay have I made the profile around the top using the table saw, a 1/2” round over bit, and a 1/4” round nose bit. It still needs to be sanded down and will be stained pecan. The top is recessed for a piec...

Power Tool Storage

09-29-2011 07:02 AM by Trev_Batstone | 3 comments »

Because my workshop is in my garage and space is at a premium, I have had to make use of available space for storing some of my power tools. In this photo, You can see my compound mitre saw sitting high on a shelf near the ceiling, and my router table hangs from that shelf by two sturdy chains. It is out of the way, giving me as much floor space as possible in my confined workshop.
