Today I thought I’d stop cutting after the second sheet in order to put the puzzle together to see what we have. Here is the front foot: And the rest fit together so far, although I might reshape the seat once it’s glued up. It’s fun to see all of the pockets and bolt holes being drilled in the passes before the profiles; the only thing I couldn’t do on the shopbot was the angled pocket where the back supports joins the underside of the seat. Planning on ...
Been taking down Christmas Lights a little behind on my schedule. Setting up a workshop on a budget.Page 2Welcome back to those who followed my first blog on this topic and welcome to the new ones just ones just now following. Has it been a whole week already? Well, let me start where I left off. (takes a sip of that wonderful bean coffee), Oh yes now I remember, we were talking about lighting. I guess the next topic is how do we get rid of all that saw dust we are about to create. ...
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...

I am getting anxious to start on this project. I have the cut list (below) all ready. Unfortunately the lumber yard I am purchasing the material from is only open on the weekdays during my work hours. I finally have a Thursday/Friday off next week, so off to the lumber supplier! I would love to do this in walnut, but cost drives me to white or red oak. I may decide that this is a once in a lifetime piece and end up with walnut.
The new saw bench is working out great. Very strudy, with no side to side wobbling. The saw Im using was given to me by a friend. Its a old Disston with one missing tooth. It cuts very straight, and very quick to my surprise. The ends of my cuts are farily square, for someone who doesnt have alot of time behind one of these. I think this bench will be a great exercise in using these larger hand saws. From the look on my face one could gather that hand tools can replace a membership to a gym ;...
I thought it was high time I did a more detailed post. It’s not exactly blogesque, but at least it’s not clogging up the main projects with details. This goes with the cabinet I just posted on the projects page. Enjoy. This bathroom cabinet/sideboard was a house-warming present for a friend’s oddly-shaped full bathroom. At least, that’s what she thinks. I think it was a great excuse to use up some wood I had lying around, and a chance to try several things for the fi...
Greetings to all; I am attaching scans of a tool that I once made my version of, for setting the table saw blade square to the table. It’s electric running on batteries with a led to indicate. You set it with a steel square on a flat surface; when both pointed probes are touching the blade, the light lights up. They work great and I’m making one after I finished my ersatz Biesmeyer fence. You can get the little battery holders at Radio Shack or simiar.Check out the drawings a...
