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...

Fixing Warp in Plywood

03-26-2017 04:36 PM by ConrailDon | 2 comments »

Hi Everyone, this is my first post. I hope to tap a good knowledge base here.I am trying to build some table leafs (hope i used the correct word). They need to be 1.075 thick. My thought was to glue up some 3/4 birch Ply with some 1/4”. I struggled to find some really flat 3/4” stock, so I glued up the first panel on my workbench. My workbench is 3/4” particle board and very flat. Anyway the 3/4” stock had about a 1/16” bow in a 4 foot length. I glued this up...

Shop air cleaner #1: The build

10-15-2016 07:42 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

A popular home-built shop accessory these days is a filtered shop air cleaner, of which I’ve had the privilege to see several designs. Whether floor standing or ceiling mounted, or using box fans or centrifugal blowers, they all have some things in common: they are fairly simple and inexpensive to build. My workshop is located in a tandem two-car garage, in rainy Vancouver, BC, Canada, thus it is not always feasible to leave my garage door open for long lengths of time (woodworking i...

I had to organize all my sanders and sandpaper. I used 1×8 and some 1/4” plywood. Check it out, subscribe and share the video. Visit my channel here.
