Path To A New Workshop #4: Top Layer, Pegboard, and Other Stuff

12-20-2014 03:40 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

So the last few days have proven to be highly productive. Before moving the workbench to its final position I decided to ahead and hang the pegboard as not having 2’ of desk between you and the wall helps.I decided on doing an 8’ long by 35” high pegboard. Its significantly smaller than my previous 4’x8’ pegboard. There is roughly about a foot between the top of the pegboard and the ceiling. I plan to put a shelf up there to hold plastic boxes like my Kreg kit...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #2: Understanding the plans

12-19-2014 03:44 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Before starting this project, I wanted to ensure that I fully understood the plans and all the work required. In terms of fully understanding the plans this involved reading and re-reading the article by Darrell Peart in FWW several times. I wanted to ensure I was intimately familiar with all the components, their details, how to make them and how to put them together. As I looked over the plans and went over each part in my mind I realized there were a couple of parts of the plans and ins...

New Bench #2: The Plan 1.2

12-17-2014 04:36 PM by Rhoots | 1 comment »

Well I think I’ve designed this thing to death. This weekend I’ll buy the timbers for the base and get the drying started. That will probably take a few months.In the mean time, I have a few other projects to do; Tool Cart, Garden Table, Planer Trolley. Here’s the link to the final design in SketchUp: Workbench

Path To A New Workshop #3: Legs & Base Frame Completed

12-17-2014 08:20 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

As promised, two more days of work as produced results. I did get one surprise through this process. I expected the whole thing to be sturdy, that is how its designed after all. I might have gone a bit overboard. It actually takes effort to make it wiggle at all and my female hung off of one side and shook around, the bench didn’t move. So success there. Anyways, on with the pictures. So the legs are done, obviously, here is what they look like with their first of two cross pieces...

Path To A New Workshop #2: Primary Cuts & Leg Mockup

12-15-2014 09:30 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

So today is my one day off which means time to be productive. So once laying some new tile got dealt with, I was free to get to work on the bench. First off, some pictures to show the current state of the garage. So the first picture is of the garage itself, mind the girlfriend in the back there. Its currently a mess. Mostly due to stuff that still needs to migrate into the house and stuff that needs to go into the attic. The second picture is of my current bench. 12’ Long ...

Path To A New Workshop #1: The Intro/Situation

12-15-2014 12:09 AM by Vactet | 2 comments »

Hi folks.Well first post here. Found out about this site from Pintrest pins leading to it and found it extremely helpful. Figured I’d chronicle my not-so-little project here via these blogs. So here we go. [WARNING: This entry is going to be highly text heavy] Short history lesson first. Started my own business in June of this year (2014). Was currently living in a house that I was renting for various reasons but had every intent of buying a house shortly. Prior to that lived in a Co...

Epic Desk: 'The Consummate Indoorsman' #1: Spitballing. Lots of Spitballing.

12-05-2014 03:43 PM by StillTooShort | 0 comments »

This idea has been kicking around in my head for almost a year, and recently gathered momentum due to the fact that I acquired a new (and practical/non-lethal) table saw. I also re-discovered Sketchup after many years, now having something to actually draw. To this point the desk has gone through a lot of practical refactoring: I decided that because I will not have the cash on hand to buy a thickness planer that all the lumber would probably need to be sourced from available dimensional...

Student desk #1: Frame and top.

12-01-2014 02:41 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I’ve been working on my son’s desktop for a while now. I have a Christmas due date so I had to get a move on. The desk frame took me all weekend. That really surprised me. I imagine I could go a lot faster If I didn’t fly by the seat of my pants all the time. A plan might be helpful. Any how, I’m using rabbit joint joints for the first time and they came with a whole bundle of lessons. They didn’t come out perfect but I believe I can do better next t...
