Circular trays with Dished centers on the Router #1: Getting started

03-26-2009 03:25 AM by HeirloomWoodworking | 12 comments »

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks! Welcome to my very first attempt at a blog. Let me open this discussion by letting you know that I am a self taught carpenter, with a humble collection of tools and a humble little workshop. I truly enjoy the Lumberjock community because we are all made to feel as an equal participant of the group, regardless of our individual skill levels. An important part of my growth in the wood art is to work hard at improving my skills and learn valuable new techniques ...

Workbench #1: Design Plans

06-11-2011 03:05 PM by CartersWhittling | 9 comments »

Hello. These are the plans I have for a new workbench. I think I have decided that now is the time to build a bench I won’t need to remake. I have done lots of studing on workbench designs and could not decide between the German bench and the Roubo because of the leg vise. I had some thoughts in mind to making a double sided bench and incorporating both bench designs. I soon came across the Edwards bench. http://woodtreks.com/design-build-traditional-woodworking-workbench-tail-shoulder-...

Crosscut Sled

This video features a new crosscut sled built for my shop. Inspiration for this sled came form books in my library and countless Internet searches. This is a simple project for the shop that will increase safety, speed and accuracy of crosscuts on the table saw. Construction is simple with a MDF base, maple fences, Incra Miter Bars and T-Track. The plan file is available for download. Hopefully this will inspire a sled for your shop! David STOP BLOCK DETAIL FRONT FENCE DETAIL

Making a Tumbling Block Cribbage Board

11-01-2010 10:44 PM by WoodMosaics | 22 comments »

I will start this blog the same way I started the one on making a Lazy Susan. Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bot...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #1: The Glue Up Table

05-11-2012 06:28 AM by Boxguy | 8 comments »

The Glue Up Table In my shop the most important element in efficiency is organization. That means having what I need at hand when I need it. In the case of the glue up table it starts with a straight line that I can put the sides of the box against to line them up for glue-up. This is a shop made holder for the tape dispenser. It allows me to have the tape already positioned over my work and it is easily removed from the holder. Glue and brushes are essential. I keep my bru...

Combo Drum Sander #3: Surface Sander, cabinet, specs, cost, observations

04-03-2011 09:55 PM by tyka | 7 comments »

This is the last of three parts detailing how I made the sander. Part 3 provides details for the surface sander attachment, photos of the final combo sander, specs, dimensions, comments, observations and a cost estimate. I found the sander too heavy to lug around and too high to use on my bench or assembly table. It’s now on a rolling cabinet made with ¾” plywood. The cabinet has two large drawers and storage in the back for the Surface Sanding Table, a place to hang a large push stick on ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #1: Starting the project...

03-26-2011 11:07 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...
