Stickley No. 622 Trestle Table #1: Plans and Materials

04-01-2016 02:40 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

I am going to start construction of a new Dining Room table using plans from this book that I recently purchased. I bought this book for my students to use hoping it would have lots of reference images and different projects to select from, and it does have a bunch of really nice plans. However, it is not really for beginner woodworkers because there are no step-by-step instructions for each of the projects. For example, here is the set of drawings that I’ll be using as a refere...

Workshop #7: All day in the shop! Slat Wall Tool Boards

03-26-2016 10:55 PM by Matt | 2 comments »

This whole “I’m building a workshop and I’m building it NOW!” thing came out of starting a project (to build a 4×5 view camera) and getting VERY frustrated at not being able to locate my tools. Nothing has a place where it belongs. Nothing is organized. Well, that’s about to change! Today I built two tool boards. One 3’x8’ which is located where the workbench will go once it is built. The second is a smaller 3’x4’ tool board...

Workshop #5: Added a bandsaw today!

03-22-2016 04:12 AM by Matt | 0 comments »

Sorry, no pics yet… BUT! I picked up a 12” bandsaw today! So happy about this! I’ve got some QSWO waiting to be resawn for a box project. It is an older Craftsman model. Not the best, but it has a decent motor at 1-1/3 HP. It took a little time to get tuned up, but not too bad. It does need some new thrust bearings, which I found on EBAY (no longer made). The existing ones are solidly bound up. The tires on it are pretty heavily coated in saw dust and pitch....

Rotating Star Box Design

03-18-2016 01:57 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

At least a new prospect (design stage) for a box with 6 colors is finished. The truth is the difficulty in joining 4 corners that would match in way of doing a mitered box. Anyone who is interested is welcome to copy and make it a reality. What is important is the possibility of just making the design and the contrast of colors that will create an illusion. This weekend I will account available materials and start setting the smallest piece that I could start. And if you want a sket...

The Dream of my Workshop #1: Design Stage #1

03-08-2016 07:38 PM by GWTaylor | 4 comments »

With my limited space to do woodworking in my basement a shop as always been a dream of mine. Cost has always stopped me from pushing forward, but have been able to make some purchases of tools that I have used during the warmer months here in Canada. Now that my youngest son has decided to take woodworking through 4-H, I have volunteered my time as a woodworking leader. I will be setting up a shop in a pole barn but have to wait for spring in order to pour my concrete slab for the shop, i...

$500 New Shop Budget!

03-05-2016 04:43 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 4 comments »

I’ve drawn many plans… to many projects… These projects have included everything from programming micro controllers, engineering helpful technology for around the house and designing furniture for kids. The problem is… When it comes to woodworking I was always so nervous about it not being perfect that I never made the first cut. My wife gave me a budget of $500 to get some tools and materials to get started! I have a basic Ryobi kit with an impact drill, drill, ...

Workshop construction from dream to reality. #1: conception...

02-24-2016 12:09 AM by DalyArcher | 1 comment »

Well, after much debate and discussion it appears as though I am finally on my way to having a real live workshop all my own! My wife and I bought our current home with the idea of flipping it and buying something else with a large yard and shop. Take a couple years, add a little one to the mix and plans change. Our location is great, walking distance to schools and stores and work. We had considered selling and looking for something else, but we bought at a great time and the property ...

Shop Upgrades #15: Band Saw Fence

02-19-2016 07:05 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

Looking at YouTube this morning, found an interesting approach to Band Saw fence. I haven’t been happy with the few I’ve found on the market. All of them seem to be either a mess of clamping or bolting the fence rail such that the cover up the blade slot on my Craftsman 14” table. That means unbolting the thing every time I need to change a blade. ugh! AmericanWoodworker Channle had a video on a Universal Bandsaw Fence . This was actually a combination extension ab...

Build: Dust Separator

02-12-2016 05:12 AM by TabLeft | 4 comments »

View on YouTube This is an easy-to-build dust separator with a baffle. It works because the incoming air is forced around the outside wall, where the heavier dust and chips fall into the large trash can below. When driven with a blower like I use, the baffle removes the need for a standalone dust collection system (which not everyone has the money, space, or power to accommodate). When used with a shop-vac, this simple dust collector will greatly prolong the life of your filters and preve...
