Tool thoughts #51: building my version of the Ultimate Tool Stand and rearranging the shop

08-11-2013 08:44 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

I’ve got a very small shop footprint, which means that every square foot is important (yes, I know, what shop, no matter what size is that not the case?). To that end, I’ve always had the idea in the back of my mind that the Ultimate Tool Stand design from american woodworker magazine. There have been several built ‘here’, but I never felt the need to finalize it. Years ago, I started building a version of it, but ‘stopped’ after I made the top part of t...

My 21st Century Workbench

06-28-2010 05:47 PM by fineamerican | 15 comments »

18 days, and more research Ive finally arrived at the time when its time to put blade to wood. In part 1 I uploaded my sketch up version I fashioned, only to change. Im sure this will change some more. Never followed instructions in school, so why should I follow my own here?Included in this marathon of woodworking, will be a saw bench. I downloaded some plans for one from Christopher Swartz blog, Lost Art Press. I’ve selected a bunch of Cherry that was given to me, yes sometimes even ...

Countersink From Screwdriver Bit

11-19-2015 08:26 PM by Tom Howbridge | 1 comment »

Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...

Shooting Rest #2: The Structure

10-17-2011 06:01 AM by jajluni | 2 comments »

Well here is the Main body with most of the supports… I started by cutting 4 10 inch 2X4s and laminated them to make a pair. Those pieces will become the two main supports of the gun rest. I then Cut 4 More lengths of 2X4 to 18 in and glued two on each side in a stacking pattern to make up the side supports…Still all I have used only 112 inches of 2X4 and titebond II. In this picture you see the place where the gun will actually rest.Not 100% sure on the dimen...

Hand Tool Journey #16: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 4.. Almost There..

05-12-2013 04:05 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

Well I have a fully functioning Layout Compass now :D. All that is left is to do the shaping of the legs and some purtification of them. I am still working out the details of the purtification but in the end they should be pretty purty lol. All the pieces laid out with epoxy curing on the pins.. So today was filled with frustration and epoxy and a lot of brass dust. It started with cleaning up the mortise that the arc goes through and embedding the head of a copper rivet into the...
