Drill Press Workhorse – Making it more efficient

01-23-2016 05:49 PM by TheMrWoody | 10 comments »

Over the years I’ve turned my floor standing drill press into a productive tool that uses space efficiently and makes it more versatile. I started with the table top which doesn’t help most woodworking if you just use the standard metal platform that comes with the drill press. The add-on provides a broader surface, a replaceable wood insert for backing the drilling, an adjustable fence, the storage drawer and a dust collection system. For even more dust collection, I added a semi-rigid colle...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #1: Demolition

01-15-2014 09:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

At least five years ago I cleaned out an old garrison garage at the family home, took out a center wall and made a 25×25 ft shop. It looked great. Really nice. Everything in it’s place, drafting table, bulletin board, Dry erase marker board. All my power tools on one side where the dust collector was and an assembly area on the other side. I made a ‘new fangled bench’ which to this day is a nice bench. The original shop form back then can be seen at my workshop page..Th...

Man Cave Work Shop #2: The Properties of Wood

02-10-2011 06:44 PM by IceCactus | 1 comment »

I learned an important lesson here today. Wood shrinks, especially when you expose end grain and drill holes in it. I decided on this project that it would be easier if i just batch created parts. It would be less setup and less hassle. So i resawed a couple 2×4’s down to 1” thick x 2-9/16” wide and 5-11/16” long. Drilled my 3 holes per the instructions of the plan and threw it in a box. I only work on the weekends for the most part, so it took me about 2 weeke...

well here is my newest commission. it is for a pullout trash can thing. i have a couple of sketchup pictures of the box thing so here they are. the first one is of the box itself. the larger compartment is for the pullout trash can compartment, and the top is for a drawer that will be 4” deep. the whole thing will be made out of either oak of red oak. the costumer hasn’t decided yet. then here is the drawer. simple enough. 1/2” poplar dovetailed to make up the drawer ...

I moved recently and i got some more place for a shop. I am getting some new tools etc to outfit it, slowly but surely! I saw on craigslist a 8 gallon(i thought it was a 4, but i’m not complaining) RIDGID wet/dry vac for 15$i called the guy and today i went to check it out. it works great, and it has a nozzle and hose. just a bit dirty but the suction is good.WHAT A DEAL! does anyone know any attachments that could help it be a makeshift dust management system?

BALL IN A BOX #2: The Plan

09-22-2011 04:48 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Normal to each project to have a plan, written or only in the mind, working ahead is knowing what is next. Things available: The resources that are available. The essentials are: RouterRouter Jig – I will use the straight guide, compass and roller attachments… I have to make the curving jig if the compass attachment will not suffice.Routerbits… Got 1/8” dia x 1/2” (1/4 drive) straight bit – could be used for cutting the curve.Reamer bit 1/2 drive ...

Now for the scraps I got recently, I went to a local wood craft place where they make custom built ins such as cabinets, ent. centers, etc.. The gentleman I spoke with was very h...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #12: Growth, Learning how to sell, and my First Business Photoshoot!

07-19-2013 03:26 PM by Ethan Harris | 7 comments »

Hello All, Been awhile, and I really want to keep up with my blogs here on lumberjocks so here goes another. Spud (or I) has (or “have” if you assume I) been buying a lot of new tools to expand my business line and so far its been more spending money than making, but that’s the short term plan anyhow… I think. Other than expanding my (or Spud’s) tools and products its seems like I have been getting a crash course in sales 101. What makes my product diffe...
