Obsession Progress

10-07-2015 11:34 AM by EastCoast506 | 4 comments »

It has been a couple weeks now since I started this journey, and joining LJ’s, and the fire is still burning. My amazement of what people can do with wood is what seems to be fueling my obsession. I have made some progress in deciding what area of woodworking I want to really focus on, and also learning and touching on every aspect of it. One of the first things I’ve been doing is trying to turn my wasteland of a shop into a useable space. with the shop being a touch bigger tha...

Assembly Table #2: Downdraft insert

10-04-2015 12:24 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Saw a cool idea on Stumpy Nubs YouTube. A downdraft table imbedded into another table. I think that will make a great addition to my assembly table. I think I can cut out a section to add the downdraft table and a piece of Masonite to cover the holds when not needed to make a flush surface. Floated the idea with Drew (Rock-n-H Woodshop) we’ll see what he has to say. He built a better version assembly bench not tool long ago. Already working on how-to build a new fixture to inser...

Automatic Dust Collection Design #3: The final touches

09-27-2015 03:37 PM by kinger | 0 comments »

Lets take a minute to review our original design goals: The shop vac should turn on when a tool turns on – this is a simple one but its the base functionality to which we build off of. Provide the ability to run small loads off the system without turning on the DC. Provide the ability to connect multiple tools to the system, all which can independently turn on the DC. Provide the ability to keep the DC on for a variable amount of time after the tool turns off. Provide the ability...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #1: Introduction to where I am & what I'm doing

09-15-2015 07:41 PM by RobII | 0 comments »

Just got engaged a few months ago and promised my bride-to-be a hand-made captain’s bed (you know, drawers underneath the mattress platform) with corner posts and a canopy with a mirror. Found out they don’t use glass, but it’s still reflective – so it’s OK. Thought I’d start with turned posts and mixed species to give the bed some “character” instead of the much more common square or built-up posts and all the same wood – bleah! Got ...

Setting Up Shop #2: The Plan

09-15-2015 07:30 PM by wmgworks | 0 comments »

Planning and brainstroming are some of my favorite parts of any project. And everything needs to start with some sort of plan. The more effort you take to write and skectch it up equals quicker completion and less redos when the time comes to complete your project. Here is my plan for a workshop so far. The Goals Modest Woodworking Shop – after a 20 year hiatus I am highly motivated to get back into woodworking. My Dad had a shop, so I used to piddle around with his gear. Never ha...
