Baby Cradle #1: First project

1787 days ago by Bob Giovannini | 8 comments »

My first project is a baby cradle. We are expecting our first in April, so should be plenty of time. Though who knew it took so long to get those edges square! I am taking an introductory wood working class, so thankfully each time I have no idea how to proceed, the instructor is there with some tips and guidance. It started with a board… Squared (oof – who knew that would take so long!) Cut to length..Glued…Planed to proper depth. Rockers cut with bandsaw ...

Tool Reviews - Clearance Sales

1797 days ago by dustyal | 4 comments »

This is a rambling blog about tool reviews, and not a tool review itself. Last week I picked up a Delta Shopmaster TP305 planer at Lowe’s clearance sale… $180. I haven’t actually used it yet. I’m having second thoughts. It was the display unit… the last they had. I had previously read decent reviews, but I am wondering if those reviews covered this model. The price was too good to pass up. Maybe I should have passed? It had no box or manual. Manuals ...

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #1: Lumberjocks - will I fit in?

1798 days ago by Jim Bertelson | 13 comments »

Well, thanks for the great welcome. Found this forum searching for solutions to some issues as I started upgrading the shop, and thought it would be a good source of information and camaraderie. I checked out some of the threads, such as “You know you’re LumberJock if/when…”. That made me wonder…would I fit in. Am I … er, ah …. crazy enough, you know…obsessed? Then realizing that yesterday I dumped a whole quart ($15) of Watco into the bottomless pit of MDF that is my new radial arm tab...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1798 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1804 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

A journey into the workshop. #7: The thought process so far on the bench. Veering away from the instruction video or sheet.

1809 days ago by dbhost | 0 comments »

Considering the fact that this bench was designed by the guys at Fine Woodworking to be a skill builder, and I went off on my own tangent using the tools and resources I have to get to the same end. For example… The original plan called for 4×4 and 2×4 kiln dried construction grade lumber. I opted for rough cut 4×4 and 2×4 cedar lumber, planed, jointed, and then ripped it to nominal dimension. The grooves in the rails and spreaders are per the instructions cut ...
