Lessons in barnboard

04-03-2011 08:48 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

Today I had a unique experience that really got me doing something I’ve wanted to for a long time. Some background: So I have a ~150-180 year old outhouse that the previous owner moved off its old foundation and next to the pool, where it now serves as a filter/pump house. One side of the roof was cedar shingles and the other was metal sheeting (think refugee camp and you get the picture). During one of our windstorms, which the area is notorious for, the metal sheeting peeled back l...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

Jointer/Planer Restored

03-29-2011 06:16 AM by hjt | 11 comments »

As you know from reading my profile, most of my tools came from my family after our father’s death. Slowly I have been restoring them. Here is a 4 1/8” Sears Jointer/Planer. As you can see in the first photo, there’s lots of rust on it. The fence is not true; and dad re-engineered the switch. Ah, much better! Evapo Rust (and beer) came to the rescue again. (You might want to look at my review of this product – it works great.) Back in 2009, Home Depot had a magazin...

Flip Top table in progress

03-27-2011 09:43 PM by cranesgonewild | 7 comments »

This is a project I started back in September. I would pick at it from time to time in between other projects, and honey-do lists. My garage is 12’ x 20’, so I need to really think about where things go to make everything fit. I really needed a table for my planer and table top router. So, when I saw this project on the Wood website, I had to make it. This rolling cabinet also serves as my out-feed table for my table saw. Rarely do I ever follow plans exactly, and this is no ex...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #1: Starting the project...

03-26-2011 11:07 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...

A video showing how to make some really good wooden bar clamps. End your clamp shortage now! Build some clamps which only cost a few pounds to make and could be better than clamps you can buy. These clamps don’t mark the wood or stain from glue.

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...
