Shop & Tool Growing Pains #1: New House, No Tools

10-23-2012 04:19 PM by pendledad | 3 comments »

This blog is aimed at documenting my thought process about this hobby and I hope it can server as a guide to newcomers looking for help. Let me give you the background … We lived in Charlotte, NC for 6 years. We had my son, and were pregnant with my daughter when the neighborhood “turned”. Driveby shooting, armed home invasions, police helicopters, etc… Needless to say, we decided to move back home. We’re both from New England, so coming back was good f...

CNC Chevalet #2: Robots do my bidding

03-09-2013 07:06 AM by zombolina | 6 comments »

After quite a bit of time breaking down and tweaking the 3D model and then jumping throught some hoops to output correctly formatted vectors of (hopefully) all of the parts, I was finally able to take everything into Vectrics Aspire in order to generate the tool paths. Did a pen test first, and then changed the layout, so hopefully the lines will sand off. Here’s the 3/4” sheet: (anyone know how to upoad photos right side up?!) Today had me wishing for a vacuum ho...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

04-11-2008 03:48 PM by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...

Delta Contractor Style Table Saw Storage Cabinet #2: Starting all over again

05-26-2013 12:39 AM by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Changed the entire plan now. Decided to put the support legs back under the wing on the right side. I thought it had enough support with the rails of the fence but I didn’t think about the tipping point. So for stabilization purposes I put the legs back on. With legs back in place, it reduced the total width available for the cabinet by 5” so now it’s back to the drawing board. I did go ahead and cut the two sides and the top and bottom today and assembled them. Now ...

Oh what a lucky day...

04-20-2010 05:04 AM by alexbarlage | 9 comments »

So I was looking around CL for stuff that I don’t have the need or room for and came accross a listing for (2) armloads of wood for $1 a piece. Was suppose to include some pine, dowels, and other misc. small pieces, birdhouse stuff. I went out and check out the wood piles they had for sale, a bunch of random stuff, that I’ll go back tomorrow and sort through some more. She told me take a look inside the garage also, as this was all her fathers stuff and they were trying to sort...

My "Bucket List" #10: Segment Four Part One- I am gonna tease you with this.

06-05-2011 05:03 PM by therookie | 2 comments »

When I first started my bucket list, I had planned on making a cabinet based work bench well every good plan gets changed at least once throughout the process of planning. When I say that it gets changed boy oh boy do I mean it. The first issue that I noticed with my original design that I drew up of the bench was the overall cost of the bench. For a 6 foot bench, it would have cost me over $1500 just to get the materials to get started. So Now I go into the changes I made. 1. The wood:...

Board Game Travel Case #2: The exterior walls

08-30-2011 09:18 AM by ChadR | 1 comment »

I got a 8’ 1” x 10” board and cut 2-14” sections and 2-26 1/2” sections. I ripped one of the 26 1/2” boards 3” in to create the top lid. After nailing the pieces together I was about to work on getting proper dimensions for the interior drawers. I decided before finished the day off I would make a test drawer. I created the front, back and both walls. I then decided I would make them box joint together and it worked out very well, since it was my firs...

Lathe Stand #5: Sanding Station

01-11-2015 07:04 PM by Jarred | 1 comment »

Figuring out how to make sandpaper available was a challenge. My first method was tearing small strips of sanding sheets. Although effective, this took time, and I seemed to be misplacing the sheets fairly frequently. I looked into smarter ways of sanding on the lathe. I found woodturner’s packs of sandpaper, with 1” strips of various grits. This made a lot more sense than tearing strips of sheets of sandpaper. However, the packs seemed a bit pricey, and I wanted to be able to conceal the ...
