Collapsible Workbench with Free Plans

04-28-2018 12:35 PM by SirFatty | 4 comments »

I’ve run out of space in my garage workshop, to the point where I had to get rid of my workbench. To compensate, I created a collapsible workbench that uses my two Workmates as the supporting structure. To be sure, this is not a proper work surface, it’s too low and certainly not strong enough to heavy work. But for light assembly and cutting sheet goods, this will fit the bill. Also, when taken apart it stacks nicely on the foundation ledge out of the way. ...

Christmas Gifts #3: Finished Toy Machine Shed! Christmas 2017

12-26-2017 09:44 PM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

Whew! We made it, just in the nick of time! 10 minutes to midnight on Christmas Eve we put the last touchup paint on it in preparation for the big day. Spoiler: The boy LOVED it! :-) Details: Roof and floor: 1/4” plywood Trim: 1/4” thick poplar that I sawed strips about the thickness of a popsicle stick with the bandsaw and glued on. Walls: 1/2” thick plywood. 5 tiny hinges for the roof, wish they were white, but too lazy and not enough time to paint them. ...

Christmas Gifts #2: Toy Machine Shed 2017 In Progress

12-12-2017 09:02 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

After a few hiccups (including a very minor kickback accident—I’m OK, but it definitely hurt!) the toy machine shed is starting to come together. My husband cut out the tricky bits on the bandsaw while I did the sanding on the other parts. Last post someone shared a link with dollhouse parts, and whew! I’m glad I’m not making a dollhouse, my skills/time/patience aren’t to that level. ;-) We had to make some minor changes, mainly due to the types of plywood I c...

Underway again...finally #17: Unbelievable - actually finished something...2 somethings even!

12-06-2017 01:45 AM by JohnTM | 0 comments »

Well, the title kinda gives my day away. But I finished the lumber rack…. the 2nd something is further down the entry. Here’s what I’m hoping to store on the rack – currently stored on the white table and 2 sawhorses behind my stack-of-4-pallets-laying-on-the-ground-worktable situated behind my Prius.Trying not to have things get wet seems to be a big motivator. I started bright and early (though I was not birght-eyed or bushy-tailed energy wise) – 8am, which ...

Christmas Gifts #1: Toy Machine Shed 2017 Planning/Brainstorming

12-04-2017 10:27 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

What do you buy for the farming addicted tween who has every farm implement/tractor/combine under the sun? Nothing. You make him a machine shed for all of his toys. This year, instead of trying to figure out what to buy my eldest son, I decided to try my hand at making him something. He’s been hoarding boxes for years to use as sheds for his farm toys, and this year I decided that I’m tired of the motley assortment of cardboard boxes lying around with tractors in them, so I’...

Underway again...finally #13: Post-Thanksgiving return to "work"

11-28-2017 11:34 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Well, I took a few days off to “do stuff”.. you know. Life happens. Too many obligations. Earache returned. S_ happens You know how it goes. Anyway, didn’t construct/build anything again. Instead, I ran out to my favorite pallet wood place and got some more… It’s way easier mentally to dismantle than to build… and you really can’t “fail” dismantling. Oh, you can make a mess and destroy things you’re trying to salvage. But you just...

Underway again...finally #10: Re-did the casters... very early end to the day

11-18-2017 05:02 PM by JohnTM | 2 comments »

I must be the klutziest, slowest to learn woodworker on this board. Re-mounted the casters. Had to do it twice because I went the easy way and just stuck another of those small square blocks beside the existing ones. Then, silly me, didn’t check it by spinning the caster 360 degrees and they didn’t go all the way around – just like yesterday (headsmack!!!)... Of course, I only caught my mistake AFTER removing and re-mounting a pair on one end and then moving to the other ...

Adventures in CNC routing #1: Honey-do sign test #1

11-05-2017 02:40 PM by Tooch | 5 comments »

Last year I purchased a CNC machine for our school, but didn’t really get passed some basic stuff with the stock files that came with it. I recently decided that I wanted the kids to get more exposure with it, but I first had to teach myself. I gotta tell ya, some people think creating things with a CNC machine is easy, but that is certainly not the case. I’m finding that it is a different kind of “hard”, with lots of time being spent setting up the files, creating ...

Shop Projects #1: Air Filter

10-02-2017 01:15 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major investment in a fan, and the typical box fan was just not powerful enough in my opinion. We use a Lasko Wind machine in the living room and bedroom and these fans are GREAT!! I happened to catch an end of the sea...
