The Rebuild #4: The weekends accomplishments

03-02-2014 11:06 PM by Monte Pittman | 28 comments »

The mitre saw is setup, The table saw is assembled and ready to fire The dust collector is prepared for action Although the Dewalt mitre saw is 120 volt, the table saw and dust collector are 220. I have all the wiring run with the exception of making the final connection to the breakers. Primarily because I can’t find the right screwdriver at home and chose not to make a special trip into town for the screwdriver. Most of those tools were in the shop. I did manage ...

Man Cave Work Shop #4: A New Beginning

05-22-2011 07:14 PM by IceCactus | 1 comment »

After my joints broke since my last blog post. I decided to use the plans i had as a guide, and design my own cabinets. After a couple weeks of thinking about it here and there, getting some new wood from a real lumber yard and letting it dry out. This is what i came up with. all cabinets are 30 in. wide inside. So, 34” overall width. 1 of 2 small cabinet units. 1 of 2 large tower cabinet units. I am a little disappointed in how much flex or r...

A Custom Furniture Scheme

11-13-2013 12:58 PM by Stephen Mines | 5 comments »

My furniture business (Stephen Mines Custom, No. Hollywood, CA,) did routinely build totally custom furniture, but the mainstay that paid the bills and made the business a financial success was a LINE of custom furniture. Yeah, I know, sounds like a contradiction, but really wasn’t. Averaging round 30-40 pieces (Country French, English, Early American) my catalog allowed the customer or their designer/decorator to order to their specific dimensions, distress preference (including none) ...

Workbench - Start to Finish #3: The Top

07-14-2008 02:49 PM by beaudex | 8 comments »

Ok, Lets talk about the bench top. I chose brown maple for the top purely because its was the cheapest wood available. Also you will notice that it is 3/4” think prior to laminating. I would choose the same lumber again if I were to redo this project. The maple holds up very well and has a nice patina. I planned the slab to have a final thickness of 3 inches. Why 3 inches? well from the literature I have read 3 inches is generally the ideal thickness for bench dogs. In retrosp...

Path To A New Workshop #5: Drawer Shelf & Shelf

12-26-2014 05:44 AM by Vactet | 1 comment »

This part of the project was huge and, not to totally plug a product, but thank god for a Kreg Jig. So first up the center-line rear leg, a 2×10, was installed (pics showing it later on in this post). Then the main 2×4 support of the shelf was installed…after a problem. When I built the legs, I used bolts to provide superior holding power. One of these bolts, on each leg, turned out to be problematic. They were sticking out the inside of the bench a bit too far. Some cut...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

04-11-2008 03:48 PM by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...

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...
