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...
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...
I needed a miter saw station and wanted it to be good but simple. I need it to be mobile and have wood storage on the back. This is what I came up with. I can not say enough good stuff about the Best Fence by Fastcap. It is great. thanks for watching. View on YouTube
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...

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...
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 ...
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...
