Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...
Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBb81zPeVCXMFdibTFpRHdySGsThanks for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...
I think I have completed the new layout for the woodshop. What do you think? Now to figure out the shop vacuum system next.
I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thomaslightleFaceb...

This entry is going to explain my plans and design. I am obviously working on making a TV stand that’s arts and crats type style. It is going to be in my room but it has to be a good size so it’s not too big or too small for my 42 inch TV. I also plan on it being able to hold my cable box, Xbox 360, games, movies, etc. I have to get more exact measurements but have a good feel of what I plan on using, stay tuned.
We’re at it again! After using the router for the first time and finding just how much saw dust one can generate I decided to again rearrange the garage and dig out old tools and items to sell on offer up and Craigslist. We made about $250 which covered the cost of the 2 hp “industrial” single stage dust collector from Harbor Freight. I spoke to the manager about what these kids and I have been doing and that we needed a system. She went above and beyond by offering to honor...
I got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin bu...
I’ve finished planing and getting ready to build my table. My material list is in the photo above and the plans as well. The total board feet is 8.9 ft squared. I will have about 2 months to complete it and it’s gonna be the best freakin end table Tooch has ever seen. On Monday I will begin building my legs and the aprons of the table.
