Building a Modern Desk

01-05-2018 06:07 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

I built this desk from rift sawn white oak. I think my favorite part of the build was making the edge detail. Couldn’t find a router bit that I liked so I used my table saw to create the profile. If you are interested in how it was built please read below or watch the video on youtube Recount of the VideoAs with most projects it all starts with squaring the lumber and milling to thickness.Once I got it all squared up I started building the legs. I took careful measurements f...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #1: Project Planning

01-01-2018 03:09 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have never written a blog before so if this is incorrect please tell me what I should do instead; however, my intent is to document the build of my most ambitious project ever. After building the two music boxes for my daughters, I asked the wife about making one for her sister, my sister-in-law. She replied it would be a good idea but that the sister-in-law really wants a jewelry box and that it might be nicer to incorporate the two. That conversation than began an effort by the wif...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Fastest Easiest ways to break down pallets

12-21-2017 11:06 PM by Dimensions | 0 comments »

I, as well as many of you, I’m sure at some Point have used pallets to make a project. I’ve researched many ways of being the most efficient at doing this and i want to share the TWO best ways I’ve found to get the job done in the least amount of time. And also discuss whether or not it’s actually worth the time to put forth the energy to break pallets down for their lumber. https://youtu.be/QCP966Y05kM https://youtu.be/iFIpo1OEskI

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...
