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 ...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Little Guy camper Rebuild

12-01-2009 02:13 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 19 comments »

This will only happen in the spring but I just wanted to show off my latest acquisition that I’ll be modifying.Next August (22nd) will be my wife’s and my 30th anniversary. We love road trips, traveling, and state and national parks so we purchased a small camper after a search on craigslist. It’s a great little camper and in the spring I’m going to rebuild the inside and then the 30+ day trip outlining specific places throughout the country. We’re starting in Ma...

Shop Upgrades #15: Band Saw Fence

02-19-2016 07:05 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

Looking at YouTube this morning, found an interesting approach to Band Saw fence. I haven’t been happy with the few I’ve found on the market. All of them seem to be either a mess of clamping or bolting the fence rail such that the cover up the blade slot on my Craftsman 14” table. That means unbolting the thing every time I need to change a blade. ugh! AmericanWoodworker Channle had a video on a Universal Bandsaw Fence . This was actually a combination extension ab...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #52: Almost There

07-25-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I slept in a bit on account that it is Sunday. I actually woke up at my usually time and rolled over and had ‘one more sleep’. It felt good because it seems that it has been a really long time since I have done that. I think that sometimes the mind set of slowing down helps actually makes us more productive. I don’t quite understand it or know how it works, but it seems that way anyway. It feels like a bit of autumn this morning. I know people aren’t quite ready f...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #3: Material cut sheet - Plywood for Two

10-16-2011 01:09 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I tried using cutlist for sketchup and it didn’t make great choices so I flattened out the sheet goods and made sure they fit onto a sheet of plywood precut to 2ft x 4ft. There is enough material to make two nightstands. Material identification: Material Sizes:

Shop & Tool Growing Pains #3: Lumberjocks, Sawhorses, and Power Tool Value Trap

10-23-2012 06:19 PM by pendledad | 3 comments »

So with my shop taking shape, my tools off the ground, I turned to the web for advice on the first project. Everything I read suggested something like a workbench or sawhorses would make a great first project because it teaches a lot of valuable lessons for beginners and adds value to your shop. This was also where I discovered LJ. What an awesome site. A real social networking site for people across the globe to share their advice and projects. Unlike FaceBook or Twttter where you turn ...
