Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

Bed #1: The design process

04-28-2010 06:22 PM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

I am embarking on my first piece of actual furniture. It is going to be a bed, which I am making for myself. I saw something I really liked and inspected it thoroughly.. then drew up a design. This is what the rough design looks like. I would really appreciate some input. The foot/head is 24” tall and the sides are 12”. I may knock the sides down a bit, I’m not sure. I have some 2×6 so it may end up being 11”... What I am going to do for the head/f...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #9: Success! A functioning Table Saw

04-27-2010 12:32 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Spent a bit of time today doing some tweaking and setting up. I made a new piece to hold the toggle clamp out of 1/2” ply. The thinner material made the stock bolt the perfect length. The new zero clearance insert is in and I put in my trusty 50 tooth Freud thin kerf blade. A couple of hours setting everything up and it works!!! A bit of cleaning and waxing was involved today. I ripped a short section af ash and the cut looks really nice. First project….the cabinet for un...

End grain counter top.

04-26-2010 03:11 PM by paplou | 5 comments »

Has anyone ever made or seen a counter top made like an end grain cutting board. I am thinking of trying it. Counter top would be 34 square feet minus the built in cook top and sink. it will be about 4500 square inchs. i would like to make it in a herring bone pattern with 1 1/2×4 pieces. What glue would i have to use? It would be in oak, cherry, some walnut and maple. I figure it to be 1” thick set on 3/4 inch plywood. Any ideas from you guys would help. Or should...

Oh what a lucky day...

04-20-2010 05:04 AM by alexbarlage | 9 comments »

So I was looking around CL for stuff that I don’t have the need or room for and came accross a listing for (2) armloads of wood for $1 a piece. Was suppose to include some pine, dowels, and other misc. small pieces, birdhouse stuff. I went out and check out the wood piles they had for sale, a bunch of random stuff, that I’ll go back tomorrow and sort through some more. She told me take a look inside the garage also, as this was all her fathers stuff and they were trying to sort...

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...
