Shop hacks #1: Finally, a shop use for those CDR/DVD-R spools.

01-30-2014 05:24 PM by RichardDePetris | 1 comment »

Don’t be a fool! Don’t throw away that CDR /DVD-R spool, use it for your tool (not that one, funny guy.) You remember those round thingys for storing CDRs and DVD-Rs we used back in the day, before them young-guns foisted their whippersnapper SSDs and USB sticks on us. I don’t care what they say, nothing beats punched cards and they sound better too! Other than for holding coasters, CDR spools are about as useless as their contents—until now. Well, this isn̵...

Christmas Gifts #1: Toy Machine Shed 2017 Planning/Brainstorming

12-04-2017 10:27 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

What do you buy for the farming addicted tween who has every farm implement/tractor/combine under the sun? Nothing. You make him a machine shed for all of his toys. This year, instead of trying to figure out what to buy my eldest son, I decided to try my hand at making him something. He’s been hoarding boxes for years to use as sheds for his farm toys, and this year I decided that I’m tired of the motley assortment of cardboard boxes lying around with tractors in them, so I’...

Who among you has worked with boy scouts on the Woodworking Merit Badge?I’m looking for advice, counsel and how-to as my woodworking neighbor and I work with a small group of younger boy scouts to help them earn the merit badge. These boys will be 11 years old to 15 years old.I’m most interested in these things:—How did/do you organize the merit badge work, all in a single session of X hours OR in two or more sessions?—How do you determine which tools and which project...

03-17-2012 01:33 AM by DennisD | 6 comments »

Perhaph the project is too complicated and I should tell my son that he need to go to a furniture store, but I wanted to make a 6” round 1.5” thick Oak dinning table with a leaf that extended it to 8’. The top is probably the easy part the legs and support is where I’m stuck. I have done some searches on the web and found plenty at 48-60”. Need it bigger with proper support. Help?Thanks

shop update

11-07-2009 04:12 PM by kosta | 2 comments »

Yo whats up everybody this last week I have been trying out some new router bits and yesterday I started working on another book case for my dads new office. Out of all the shops this is the first one that has a real office in it next to the shop. So the book case im building is 28 in tall 20 in wide and 7 in deep. The sides are short enough that I can use dados to hold the shelves but I dont have a dado stack at my house so I used a standard tablesaw blade to make the dados. It took about 20...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #135: 'Plan B'

10-16-2010 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

It was another day of fun and creativity yesterday. I had originally planned on cutting out the next candle tray, but it was quite windy and rainy all day long. I need to do a quick routing on the edges of each of the trays and I usually do that outside, but the weather just wasn’t cooperating. Even though it only takes a few minutes to rout, I thought it best to wait and go on to ‘plan B’. I like having a ‘plan B’. I think it is something that everyone sh...

Bookcase Challenge Entry

04-18-2008 11:49 PM by FreddieB | 5 comments »

First off I’d like to say thank you to everyone for the warm welcome to Lumberjocks, you seem like a really friendly bunch. The thing that influenced my design of this bookcase is my design for a desk that I will be building for my office. The desk that I will be building has a set of file drawers the can be seen from the side so that it shows off the details for the joinery, so I thought I would incorporate a set of drawers at the bottom of this bookcase. The drawers are a lighter color...

Traditional Workbench #2: Updated Sketchup Model

01-01-2009 09:15 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 6 comments »

I haven’t had much shop time in December due to work related travel/projects and Holiday related travel/activities but I did manage to take the laptop with me and do some off time work on this model. I decided to add a case of drawers for tool storage and I added all the joinery details. Here is the SU model. I am interested in the SU community’s input and critique. Since I am almost positive that DaveR is going to say it is “Heavy” I am waiting for him to ex...

Military Shadow Box construction

04-03-2009 08:44 AM by jez | 16 comments »

Have begun construction on a shadow box for my retirement. First step – think out all the angles, grooves, dados, joints etc. and put the concept to paper. Scale helps to figure out exactly what the angles are and can help to see what might and might not work. As with any plan, once the actual work begins, the plan will often change to be either more doable or possible. Decided to build a shadow box for a 5’ x 8’ US flag in a doghouse pattern. Looked at several sites f...
