Tangrams

02-19-2010 04:40 PM by Dave Owen | 2 comments »

In most places (including Florida) it’s just too nippy to work in the shop, so how about taking a break! Forget the complexities of woodworking and the many other things that clutter our minds. Think instead of “fun and games” – or better still think of “wooden puzzles”. To call a “tangram” a woodworking project would be a stretch, but for such a quick and simple project, one can provide many, many hours of fun (and occasional frustration) ...

EMail is screwed up

02-19-2010 03:59 PM by jockmike2 | 5 comments »

Yesterday yahoo and I somehow got my email screwed up so the email at the ends of my posts right now I don’t know if they will get to me or not. I have written to them begging them not to make me change it AGAIN BUT WHO KNOWS? Anyway if you have a message send it to my page here or my facebook page. Thank you for your un-deserved attention. Now I’m off to HD to take back some stuff I bought yesterday I can’t use today, for some stuff I probably can’t use today too.

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

02-19-2010 06:27 AM by Jeison | 6 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...

Traditional German Tool Cabinet #3: German Tool Cabinet Doors Variant

02-18-2010 09:45 PM by Waldschrat | 6 comments »

So someone asked about seeing tools, well the one I built is unfortunately at the moment redundant, and the shop where I work has existing cabinets. They are probably 60 years old or so, but that does not matter, this is a Traditional cabinet, and things do not change much in tradition. ;-) I would also like to mention that the pics are from 2 different cabinets. As well I would like to cover a variant of the door design, instead of a mostly hidden endgrain hardwood munton, this version...

Traditional German Tool Cabinet #1: German Tool Cabinet Tool holders

02-18-2010 09:29 PM by Waldschrat | 2 comments »

Ok you asked for it, here it comes! Tool holders are made so, here are a couple of closeups, I already have had these made, but I have not built them in… So this blog entry is an augmention of the plan, so you can see in wood how it should look. They are nothing more than some hardwood, in this case Ash, strips glued together. When selecting wood for tool cabinets or anykind of cabinet where steel or iron will be in direct contact with wood, the Cabinetmaker must always thin...

Upcoming projects and designs. #4: Shop Air Cleaner. Have parts, will build...

02-17-2010 10:43 PM by dbhost | 19 comments »

Okay will have parts this weekend… I found a source for pullout 110V squirrel cage furnace fan blowers, and plan to grab one this weekend. The idea is to grab one, make sure it fits the plan from ShopNotes, or make the shop notes plan fit the blower whichever… and get to building. Some changes I want from the shop notes design. #1. Relieve the edges with a 1/8” roundover bit. Nothing extreme, but those corners won’t be too much above my skull, I’d rather no...

Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

Blanket Chest #1: Sketchup Design #1

02-14-2010 01:29 AM by AaronK | 1 comment »

I’m pretty sure im going to build a blanket chest for my wife for our second anniversary (holds the cotton!). I’m still in the design phase, and got this far with Sketchup. I have not filled in all the joinery, and dont plan to since there’s no need: The carcass will be assembled with loose tenons, so all parts will be milled to dimension and the joinery will follow easily enough. The top will be breadboarded. Most tenons will be doweled more for accent than strength....
