Super workbench (at least for me)

09-24-2015 09:08 PM by woodworkerguyca | 4 comments »

For about a month I have been working on a new workbench. I’ve spent a little time researching what others have done to integrate the 3 tools I use the most, table saw, miter saw, router. The miter saw is held in place by sliding it over 4 aluminum pins so it can quickly moved to under the surface when I need more space. I kept the cutout so I can place the table cutout back when I remove the saw. I’m still working out how to mount the router to the table...

The Journey Begins

09-24-2015 03:51 PM by EastCoast506 | 1 comment »

Hey Everyone, My name is Jordan, i’m 29 years old, I live in southern New Brunswick, and I just joined LJ’s.I grew up around tools and wood my whole life, my parents have been flipping houses since I could barely walk. I’ve gone from being dad’s ‘gopher’ for tools and materials such as the ‘square bit or plus sign bit’, up to framing additions and fully renovating my own house. It’s safe to say that I can just about build an entire hous...

The Spidey Box

09-24-2015 01:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

This box I made for my son for a birthday gift. He has it now and was pretty thrilled with it. Now the shop is a disaster area as I have it torn apart to build a storage unit in one corner. The box was a fun build, and I really needed the practice. My meagre skills have waned. Over the last year I have not done any woodworking, concentrating instead on getting the shop built. This is the first project to come out of it. This turned out to be a long video so I split it into 2 part...

Building For The Wife #6: Kitchen peg board for utensils.

09-24-2015 08:32 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

Right after she loaded all of her things into her new kitchen bureau, my wife was cleaning the sawdust off of her Jars of things that I had borrowed and putting them in her new spice rack. She glanced at the side of the refrigerator, which is just right of her new bureau, which sits between that and and her stove, and decided that she needed a utensil hanger there. What she described like a piece of plywood nailed to a 2x that extended out from the end of the cabinet where it came up agains...

Building For The Wife #4: Constructing drawers and breadboard no 2

09-23-2015 01:53 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

Having constructed the shell and the drawers for my wife’s new kitchen bereau, I still needed to complete the breadboard. The sanding disc for the table saw will put on a glass smooth edge. I was careful to take very light passes so that I did not burn the edge instead. I decided that a pine front would not be strong enough for the breadboard, so I cut out a piece of maple. I might have used a sander or router for this, but I used a spokeshave, a hand plane, and a profile sc...

Building For The Wife #5: Quick and dirty spice rack with doors

09-23-2015 01:39 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

With the finish drying on her bureau, a process that was taking forever because I used from a can of Ace extra slow drying polyurethane on the top, My wife reminded me that she wanted the finish to be extra smooth with lots of coats so that she could roll out dough on the countertop, and that I needed put up the spice cabinet when I brought in her new bureau so that she could organize everything affected by the change all at once with minimal disruption to her kitchen. Unbeknownst to her, ...

Building For The Wife #3: Constructing drawers and breadboard no1

09-18-2015 06:06 PM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

I had a nice little cabinet, and some drawer glides milled out of an old chunk of exterior decking lumber, but no drawers and no bread board. Anxious to remedy this, I have been spending my evenings in my shop. My first job was to mill the back and side panels for the drawers out of forty year old reclaimed pine 1×12s. Then I picked out a piece of knotty pine for my front panels. I put some thought into what sort of joint I wanted to use for my drawers. On ordinary...

Building For The Wife #2: Ipe drawer glides for custom kitchen bureau.

09-14-2015 08:47 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

I had to edit this blog and change the title, because I did identify the wood I have as Ipe. Ipe or Brazilian walnut is a popular high end exterior decking lumber. Mine came from from Brazil and according to ( ), Ipe was moved from the Tabebuia genus, listed as a spiecies of ironwood ( ) to the Handroanthus genus, which is not on that list, in 2007. This is news to me, ...

Farmhouse Table Build - Construction Grade Lumber

09-13-2015 07:00 PM by Chris McDowell | 12 comments »

You can see how I built the table in a video here: My sister-in-law and her husband recently moved back home from out of town. They have a dining room, but no dining table so she asked me to build one for her. She picked out some plans online and they are free from She told me not to change a thing. The only things I did different were related to the construction and assembly. Otherwise, it looks just like the one in the p...

Why buy it when you can make it! #39: Workbench Time [Part 3] - Ready to work

09-12-2015 02:22 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

Last night, after several nights of working on and off on the project, I finally finished my workbench and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still a few loose ends to take care of (adding the shelf for heavier tool storage. I will write more about it in the project post.
