Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Pipe Making #1: Introduction

05-18-2016 04:03 PM by MadMark | 2 comments »

This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...

New Shop building! #9: ... Rack 'em up!

09-25-2014 03:01 PM by JoeinGa | 6 comments »

This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...

Shop's Log #13: Bent Apple Pipe

09-01-2014 08:16 PM by terryR | 11 comments »

Wow, cannot believe it’s been over 2 months since I posted a Blog…still behind I am… I promised a bent pipe at the end of the last Blog, so here goes… The challenge for this project was to create a BENT pipe; meaning the airflow and tobacco chambers do not line up at 90 degrees. Seemingly simple, but not so using a lathe. Many pipe makers use specialized jaws to hold the workpiece for this geometry, but I’ve also seen a few use the techniques below… ...

Dust Collection Tip (Shown on Bandsaw)

12-21-2012 04:12 PM by Shanem | 2 comments »

So first off I have a 14” Ridgid Bandsaw and have made a few modifications to it including a riser kit. I’ve made a jig to saw up to a 4’ log into boards. The thing works well but creates a lot of dust and the dust collection on this saw was the pits. I’ve seen the dust mod idea on the site a few times and it makes perfect sense. The little trick I found when doing this mod is that I used a 4” piece of 4” dbII (type of electrical conduit). I usually...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #2: Building a functional mock up

09-05-2010 02:01 AM by jeff_wenz | 0 comments »

So I know I need to work out the sliding mechanism. 3 goals here: 1. Make sure the components fit into the space I’m allocating for it.2. Ensure all the pieces work and it is easy to slide up and down.3. Make sure the ironing board is level in the down position. Here are all the components (minus the door which I will build as part of the Murphy bed complex). I built a wall (16” stud mockup) and starting assembling the pieces I had cut from my measurements in post #1...
