Shop stuff #124: Roubo build Part 1A

05-20-2018 07:48 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube

The One Minute Workbench 3.0 #1: The design

05-16-2018 06:46 AM by Sanderguy777 | 1 comment »

To paint or not to paint? So I am wanting to build a version of the one minute work bench 2.0. If you look that up on, YouTube you can see a video of what I’m talking about but basically, it holds a table saw, air compressor and a mitre saw in the table saw out feed table. My version will be only be about 4 feet long and 3 feet wide to fit my available space. I want the table saw to be the main thing but I also need space for my miter saw and since I have a tiny air compressor, wh...

Big cabinet for the new home #3: Design change, big dado setup, rabbets and an oops.

05-13-2018 01:55 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Design change. More difficult but I think this one looks much better. Primarily changed up the door design to go inset with an upper and lower cabinet and with more glass panes. Went from 6 to 12 doors. We still haven’t decided on the detail for drawer fronts. Crown molding will be more ornate. Compare to the original. I was really concerned about getting the interior dados lined up for the sides and back. I knew it wouldn’t go together well if they weren...

Shop stuff #123: A Cute Sander Jig

05-11-2018 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been meaning to make this for quite a while now. I saw a video from Chris Cute that reminded me to get it done. I have use for it coming up and it ought to come in handy. I had fun putting this together. Not much measuring involved and made from left overs. I just found what fit and put it together. The plan has been in my head for a while. I wanted something that was sturdy, yet easy to remove the sander from it. The ability to clamp it to the bench was thought of as I built ...

Big cabinet for the new home #2: This thing will be heavy!

05-10-2018 03:13 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Well, I got started breaking down the plywood parts. 10 sheets of 3/4, this thing is really going to be heavy. Components of the big cabinet. 3 carcasess and 3 drawer boxes will be plywood. I got Lowes to do the initial breakdown. but just one cut each sheet of plywood. The only thing cut to final size was the backs. at 33” by 96” I didnt want to trim them if I didnt have to. so I hoped they would give me a nice square cut.. They came out fine though a little rough. ...

New Shop Build #3: A solid foundation

04-26-2018 09:26 PM by Bikerdan | 3 comments »

Finally! After days of planning, waiting, questions, weather issues, more planning, and more waiting, it’s finally done! I have a foundation to build on! As you can probably tell, I’m really excited. There were a couple of changes I was able to squeeze in to the plan before the pour. I added a Ufer ground and ran conduit to an electrical cement floor box so I’ll have power ran to the middle of the room. I mostly plan on using that for my table saw and for running pow...

Big cabinet for the new home #1: Rough drawing - concept

04-21-2018 06:07 PM by Lalen | 5 comments »

So… moved into a new house a few months ago and my wife needs some more storage for her serving dishes, bowls, cake plates and so on. (She has a lot of things to set up for parties etc) We looked at a lot of things on line, then put together a design that will fit her storage needs, and what I think I can make. This will be my biggest build project to date. This is the rough idea. I haven’t added molding details to the drawing We will decide that as I go, but I mainly wa...

Dug and poured footings this week, shop will be 20×40 with a 8×12 room that has exterior access for storage and yard equiptment!
