Moberg Tools Small Router Plane Review

03-01-2017 03:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

Video link is here if you prefer not to read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJsGbmom-g I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the &#...

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Router Cabinet Redo #3: Base & shelf

02-28-2017 06:02 PM by edwood1975 | 2 comments »

The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...

Router Cabinet Redo #1: Motivation & Research

02-27-2017 04:45 AM by edwood1975 | 8 comments »

I built a router cabinet and table about 2 years ago and it’s simply a must have tool in my shop . Although it was one of my first shop projects I did a decent job on it but the design failed in a few ways . You can see my first router cabinet here : The other day I was I was wheeling it and 2 of the casters fell off , I used the casters that you insert into a leg, the leg cracked and out came the caster. I also built my own table using MDF and that began to sag where the route...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

Convertible Wall Easel #1: Wall Rails

02-18-2017 07:03 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

This is an odd item. I paint. The mediums I use are Oil and sometimes watercolor. When painting with oil you usually stand in front of an easel that is vertical. When using water colors, you usually paint at a table as the paper is often wet. Sometimes very wet so you paint with the paper horizontal. Thus, I decided to make an easel that is usable in both the vertical and horizontal mode. I also wanted one that was attached to the wall and made as to not be as conspicuous as a large artist ea...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...
