I spent part of today, getting a few 1×4s ready to become aprons on the table. They had been sitting out in the van for over a month, freezing their knots off. Brought them in to the Dungeon shop to warm up awhile. laid them out on the clothes dryer, in fact One of the four short pieces is elsewhere. Actually, it was in a vise, getting a little trim work Oh boy, a board with…..Charactor! Those are cracks, not pencil marks. Took a hand plane for a spin on the f...

Workbench Build #12: First real issue.. Suggestions needed

02-21-2013 02:37 AM by Airframer | 11 comments »

I finally got fed up with tripping over things and wading through a sea of saw dust last night. That was all it took to finally clean up the mess made by the ripping process and reset to start on the base. After sweeping up and re-stacking Still need to clean off the wall benches though! As I was re-stacking the lumber I noticed some issues with the 4X6 fir posts I had bought for the legs. I went with those because A) They were inexpensive and easily acquired at Home De...

Handplane Treasure Trove #1: Craigslist find

02-20-2013 07:33 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

So I found a C/L post or the sale of 7 hand planes. The only one I was interested in was a Stanley #7, so I inquired. The seller said he wanted $110 for all of them. Hmmmmm, I thought. If I could get him down some more that’d mean I’d pay a little more than $10 per plane. I could restore them, remove all the rust, sharpen the irons, etc. and sell em each for $25 or more. Except the #7….I want to keep that one. So I offered $80, citing the amount of rust removal, ...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Cheap TV Table: the top

02-20-2013 03:25 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

The two planks that made up the top, were a bit cupped, gluing them up into a top didn’t help out much. Although I took the top out of the clamps I still kept them handy. I used two of the pipe clamps to hold the top steady whilest i did a little flattening The one face wasn’t too bad, so just a wide Jack plane to level the field, and a smoother to, well, smooth things out Flipped the top over, as I wanted both faces cleaned up. I hadn’t decided which face wo...

Another Cheap Table, for a TV this time.

02-19-2013 01:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laid out a few junkie boards. Well one was junkie, anyway. Pretty, ain’t? Needed to scrub away the junk on the outside, so I could at least see where I was cutting.. Little scrub plane was taking too long, so I got out a slightly bigger one Clamps might get in the way on a cut, so a couple 2” long screws to hold it in place, for my saw to do a rip cut I ripped a blank off the plank, turned the plank around to the other “good” side, and ripped again. ...

Two others were in need of the “Works” handles stripped, one tote repaired, irons sharpened back up. All manner of rust removed.

Hand Tool Journey #5: Building My Beginning Set.. How am I doing so far?

02-12-2013 06:19 AM by Airframer | 1 comment »

When I last left you guys I had mentioned that I had “few” tools incoming from fleabay and elsewhere. Well they have been slowly trickling in all week and aside from a couple still outstanding I have the makings of what I am considering my student set of tools. I won’t bore you too much with the details and just get on with the pics and inventory listings.. First up are my hand planes so far. Most if not all of them require either just some sharpening or a complete ...

Faery Mirrors Build #2: Learning & More Jigs

02-08-2013 02:33 AM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Well… a couple of days of intense learning. Chopped some mortises with my drill press, not very happy with them, machine has way to much runout. You can see them on the left. So I made a mortising jig for my router, inspired by this post: The mortises on the right (above) were cut with this jig. I made some upgrades to the jig. I scribed centre lines before drilling for the router, then mounted a 1/4 inch brad point drill b...
