Three drawer hall cerdenza #1: Start to a new project requiring new techniques

02-22-2018 01:23 AM by Oldtool | 5 comments »

I have a request for a small credenza to be used as a hall table, but including three drawers. This project requires several techniques new to me that I want to use & hopefully be able to master. The design selected is “something” similar to this antique found on line at a site named 1st Dibs: I made a drawing of what I had in mind, which was agreed on, so I started the process: I started with the sides, making the legs from 8 quarter maple, the panel in the f...

Shop stuff #116: Modding pipe clamps with built in cauls.

02-11-2018 02:42 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

When doing glue ups, it’s always hard to manipulate the clamp, plus the cauls, plus keep everything aligned. This helps with that if you work in a shop alone. I made them a bit wider too so it helps the clamp with stability when on a bench too. An easy project from pieces I had around the shop. View on YouTube

Crib #1: Design

01-21-2018 06:21 AM by RenB | 1 comment »

All right please bear with me, this is my first Blog entry on any topic. The wife and I are expecting our first child at the end of May. We are equal parts excited and terrified (to be honest I’m a little more on the terrified side, but don’t tell her). The only project on my list currently is a Bluetooth speaker, but that is on hold because the battery I ordered is coming from china with a one-month ETA. So, I thought that maybe I would get in over my head and build the cri...

Benchtop Bench & Vise #1: Inspiration

01-12-2018 05:53 PM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 0 comments »

I very much need to upgrade my current clamping solutions in the shop as my Jay Bates inspired Moxon Vise just isn’t cutting it, I cant work on all face of the workpiece like you can on a traditional Woodworking Woodbench which currently isn’t in the budget. I just wanted to say before anyone comments about it, I couldnt afford to do the entire project in Maple or solid oak so I used construction grade lumber Kiln dried 2×4’s for part of the worksurface and bottom fr...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Adjustable Height WorkBench - EXACTLY HOW IT WORKS

12-31-2017 12:10 AM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

An Adjustable Height Odyssey – Why I built this workbench, and HOW IT WORKSCharlie Kocourek How it All StartedI had a few problems with my first workbench. It was too low for carving or for detail work, it was too high for assembly, it was also too high to sit behind my table saw, and it was difficult to move around. It was anything but ergonomic! After some thought, I concluded that an Adjustable Height Workbench could solve all of these problems. I then searched the int...

Hand tool workbench build #2: Wood selection -- and the verdict is:

12-30-2017 08:23 AM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hard maple. The above image pretty much sums up the reason for me. If you look at a shaving of each, you’ll see that the hard maple is much more homogeneous whereas the ash splits into strips. I’m concerned that those strips will end up translating to chunks popping off (or tearing up) from the surface of my workbench as I accidentally dig chisels or other sharp objects into it. Here’s an image of the two “candidate” pieces of wood that I cut, smo...

Hand tool workbench build #1: Introduction and goals

12-29-2017 06:24 AM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve got this crazy idea that I’ve been hinting at which is to build a workbench entirely using hand tools. I have a number of power tools, including a table saw, a jointer and a thickness planer, but I’m thinking that I’d like to try to make this project by hand. My goal is to share my progress through an overdue youtube channel I created. Here’s a link to my channel where I go over some of the information you see in this post: https://www.youtub...
