TV stand #1: TV Stand plans

04-05-2016 04:06 PM by TripleXDom | 1 comment »

This entry is going to explain my plans and design. I am obviously working on making a TV stand that’s arts and crats type style. It is going to be in my room but it has to be a good size so it’s not too big or too small for my 42 inch TV. I also plan on it being able to hold my cable box, Xbox 360, games, movies, etc. I have to get more exact measurements but have a good feel of what I plan on using, stay tuned.

Shop Improvements #3: Dust Collection and Tools

04-04-2016 11:53 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 1 comment »

We’re at it again! After using the router for the first time and finding just how much saw dust one can generate I decided to again rearrange the garage and dig out old tools and items to sell on offer up and Craigslist. We made about $250 which covered the cost of the 2 hp “industrial” single stage dust collector from Harbor Freight. I spoke to the manager about what these kids and I have been doing and that we needed a system. She went above and beyond by offering to honor...

Shop Remodel Project #3: Dried In (almost)

04-04-2016 10:30 AM by cdbridge39 | 3 comments »

I got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin bu...

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, ...
