Shop storage projects #3: Drawing up a Plan

01-03-2017 02:26 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Not every day that I will try to draw up a plan, usually done inside my overworked brain. Sometimes, though, I need to make a few squiggles on some paper, to help find what size of parts are needed. Such is the case for the Chest o’Drawers project. 5 drawers have been decided on. 2 from 1×8 x 8’, 2 from a couple of 1×6 x 8’ and one 1×4 x8’ . Each 8’ plank will make all the parts for one drawer, except for the 1/4” plywood bo...

Sturdy and minimal tools cart

12-26-2016 04:27 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

I Knew that with christmas approach space in my shop had to be made for incoming tools, In this case, it was one of those ridgid oscillating sander. I decided to build this minimal but extremely rugged sander cart. The idea behind the desighn is similar to mathias wandells in which the cart has open faces for future drawers. https://youtu.be/XDavMWO1Geo

Yin and Yang #1: My process for cutting a Yin and Yang pattern.

12-19-2016 02:12 AM by Jim Jakosh | 20 comments »

I use maple and walnut and start with the maple stacked on a piece of walnut because the pattern on maple is easier to see when cutting. I have two sizes shown here and have finished products from both.I start by drawing tangent circles and then drawing a circle around the both of them. It is important to draw these accurately because I sand to the lines for fitting the pieces together/ Then I cut on the outside of one circle and the inside of the other and never cross the line because...

This Old House: My First Home. #1: This Old House

12-15-2016 02:09 PM by WoodTraveler | 0 comments »

I am sure many other folks have thought about this when they got their house. I am a truck driver and I am limited mostly on time. but i am for the first time in my life venturing out to do something that i have wanted to do for many years. This past Sunday, 12/11/16 I met with my parents about a house that i have loved since I was 10 years old. As a kid we moved in next door to this old man that would quickly become one of my closest childhood friends. The man that showed me how wonder...

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Shop stuff #67: Upgrading the shop

12-04-2016 10:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After the coffee table build I took some time to get a bit further along on the shop itself. Doing it a bit at a time is not really the recommended way of doing it, but it is what the budget allows. This is a long term project and I throw a little at a time into it. I never heard of a shop being truly “done” anyway. I didn’t think I had enough footage for a video, but it turns out I had more than enough, so there will be another update in the near future. View on You...

Mixer StandDrawing

12-01-2016 06:19 PM by Lalen | 5 comments »

So my mom’s been talking about putting a stand for her heavy, kitchen aid mixer at the end of her kitchen counter. I thought i might be able to build something so we collaborated on the design to fit the space. I drew it in Sketchup Some new adventures for me… 1. getting good tight miter corners on the framing of the top.. Outside board will be 5.5” to look like a very thick top.2. 4 side tapered leg. (time to build a tapering jig for my table saw)3. mo...
