Work flow and adopting tools

04-18-2010 04:50 AM by sawblade1 | 2 comments »

Hi there fellow lumber jocks This week has been an interesting one for me I spent all week moving my shop around to accommodate two new tools a 1960’s craftsman radial arm saw and a 1977 Delta/Rockwell jointer:) All I can say is well thought out tool placement will keep you safe from falling into the same trap I did after a well thought out plan or so I thought, after doing two Adirondack chairs and a footrest I found out my plan wasn’t going to work to well :( My advice to ...

I am close to a finished workshop. I need some help for storage

04-15-2010 09:46 PM by sboyle | 3 comments »

Hello All, Over the last few years, I have been collecting all kinds of tools. I am moving my machine and boxes and boxes of hand tools and accesories. I am looking for a storage solution that would be wall mounted to hold all the hand tools and power tools. I was thinking of a wall hung cabinets to house my hand held power tools, and at least another to house my hand tools. I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...

Wood Gear Clock

04-08-2010 09:12 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 10 comments »

I have always had a fascination with how things work. As a kid I drove my parents’ crazy taking things apart but it was part of learning. Even today I will look at something a wonder how it was made or how it works. For most things I believe that if someone else can do it then so can I, now I am not saying that I am smarter than anyone else, I believe for the most part that all of us can figure most things out if we try. Around a year ago I was looking at a pendulum clock, I have always...

The Wine Rack #2: Preliminary Design

04-08-2010 04:50 PM by Todd Clare | 10 comments »

I’ve measured the space where I’m going to put the rack, and started to want to visualize the design. I opted to fire up Google SketchUp which has been really useful for me in the past in laying things out and seeing them in 3D. This is the preliminary design only, as I still need to move things around and make sure the spacing and height and shadow lines are where I think I might want them. One of the challenges was how to make it “light” looking, and making the ...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #1: The Plan

04-04-2010 06:01 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

It feels good finally to be getting back to wood working. During late December-February, my garage was just too damn cold to work in, despite having two space heaters going (the wife was too scared of propane-based heat sources, so those were nixed…). Then, in February, we decided to put our house on the market – so all free time started going to fixing things up and getting our house ready to sell. That’s all done with, so it’s time to get some wood working done. ...
