From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) #3: Overthinking things without any actual woodworking

08-31-2017 11:50 PM by JohnTM | 18 comments »

Warning – this is a long entry…Having not made a single cut or turned a screw yet is semi-depressing. Why, you may ask? To be honest, it’s a case of paralysis by analysis. I’ve scoured LJ and the ‘Net in general for about two weeks looking at workbench designs. At first, I was absolutely enamored of Roubo-style benches but soon realized they are primarily for hand tool-centric work and not really for hybrid woodworking (at least as I understand it). Then I ...

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

Simple box to hold candy #1: Joinery

07-15-2017 11:05 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a request to build a little box to hold/hide candy in….I had a plank planed down to about 7/16” thick..or so. 6” wide. Has a bit of figure to it.. Needed to get five parts out of it..Mitre saw to cut them out.. You were expecting a motor? Ok, the 5 parts needed.. A panel for the lid, an end a front and back and another end. Got out the usual suspects.. I use one combo square to set depths, another to do a knife line across. The mortise chisel is to ...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Reached the point I needed a Planer…..no way am I hand planing 5/4 down to 3/4”.....Have a friend that has my old Delta 12” planer….soooo, load up the van… And head out on the road….hang a left at the old Family Cemetery site.. Corner of the old 1822 Homestead. They later built one of the first Methodist Churches in the area.. This was the site of Olive Chapel. They long since moved into town. About 2 miles from here, pull into the fellow ...

L-Shaped Desk #4: The fire, it burrrrrns!

05-29-2017 08:09 PM by SauceMan | 1 comment »

I want to keep this quick because it’s almost 1pm and I haven’t started yet. I got a new blade and a new belt to put into my table saw, but I really want to get working on my desk. Yesterday was a pretty productive day. I feel like every time I take 8 quarter steps forward, I take 4 quarter steps back. (little woodworking joke for you guys, you can thank me later). Last weekend I got this Diablo blade for my new table saw and spent a fair amount of time trying to square m...

Shop stuff #93: Another mail/key organiser.

05-17-2017 02:30 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My ex-wife saw the one I made for my niece and wanted one too. So I made one for her. A variation on a theme. I found some nice pieces of walnut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1J8l6i7noA
