Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...
My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #6: Keeping Above Water and Learning to Tread... And Product Photos!
Hello Readers, Some people get busy just doing what they do, some people get busy learning how to do it, others get busy because they allowed themselves to get that way. Right now I’d say my process for “Product Handling Time” is working, if a customer orders a product, it is then processed and shipped normally within 3 to 6 business days of the original order. Question: “Why not 3-5, or 1-3 days instead?” Answer: “Because you never know how muc...
im lookin for plans for a log bed i cant find any one the net i like any ideas will help im not going to use it for a bed just need a idea of how the joints are made by hand not with a expensive tools
The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...
I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...

At this point, despite taking today ‘off’ from shop time, I’m going to call the interior shop cleaning ‘done’, in that once I put away what is left on top of my bench, I will have it all cleaned up and ready to work. Now it is on to bigger & better things. I’ve had my shop in various states of progress for about a decade. I’ve made a bunch of things from the shop itself, to several beds, a bunch of cutting boards and so forth. One thing I hav...
One of the first things I did here after finding this site was to post a project I had designed in Sketchup for a new TV stand to match my entertainment center. You can find the original forum post here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1522 I thought it might be interesting if I detailed the evolution of this project to show how listening to good advice can drastically change the way you have something originally designed. We had a large 65” TV we were going to replace with a newe...
