Shop stuff #104: Deck build Pt 1

09-19-2017 05:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I posted the video of the mobile home skirting on my You Tube channel but did not put it here at Lumberjocks as I didn’t think it was very relevant to wood working. But I did the skirting because I (well, the wife actually) wanted to build a small deck. Much easier to put the skirting on first, so that determined the order of operations. I missed taking a lot of footage but this is a very condensed version of the build. There will be at least another part, maybe 2. It was a big lon...

the space is defined, now on to the shop layout...

09-16-2017 08:19 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

Hi all. New here, well new to posting. Done lots of snooping. Anyways, our family recently chose to move and downsize. Our house is a modest 850sf, but has a usable basement, but no garage. Soooo as part of our plan, im building it. Basically a 18×24 ft pad, 1 car space inside, carport space outside and room for a small, but dedicated, 18×12ft shop. Given those confines, I’ve got a blank slate to work with and as I’ve been working on designing it thought i shoul...

From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) #3: Overthinking things without any actual woodworking

08-31-2017 11:50 PM by JohnTM | 18 comments »

Warning – this is a long entry…Having not made a single cut or turned a screw yet is semi-depressing. Why, you may ask? To be honest, it’s a case of paralysis by analysis. I’ve scoured LJ and the ‘Net in general for about two weeks looking at workbench designs. At first, I was absolutely enamored of Roubo-style benches but soon realized they are primarily for hand tool-centric work and not really for hybrid woodworking (at least as I understand it). Then I ...

Bandsaw tension quick release addition

08-19-2017 06:18 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I am currently in between projects and seeking something to do in the shop, so I decided to install a bandsaw tension release lever. My bandsaw is an Hatachi model CB13F, 12 inch saw that was also sold by Sears with the Craftsman model number 137.224320. Not interested in starting from scratch, I looked around the internet and found two possibly easy adaptable solutions by Grizzly; a lever device and a (as they call it) clutch device. I decided the easiest one to try would be the clutch re...

Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #100: Monster Computer Base pt 1....a slow start

08-07-2017 08:12 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been away from editing video for a while. Been busy with other things. Today was rainy, so I started another series on a base for a computer tower for my niece’s boyfriend. Problems occur with bad materials, but I guess it was good practice. Next time, we start over. View on YouTube

Hope this helps and sorry for the confusion. Bob

Getting Back to My Passion for Woodworking #2: Apprenticeship #1

07-15-2017 05:55 AM by Duff | 2 comments »

I started working as a apprentice for Richard at Nautilus Woodworks in Riviera Beach, Florida after working at a car rental agency while trying to get out of nursing. It was a small shop that catered to Palm Beachers and that clientele. It was my boss Richard, Bob and I full time and a couple other guys that would come in if he needed some extra help. My first day on the job we were crating up a cocktail table that was being shipped to a country club in Connecticut. It was a mahogany table wi...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

So I had some flies in the shop and I wasn’t in the mood for sharing my adult beverage. I had a light bulb moment and this is what I came up with… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbcMOO8SGOI
