New State, New Shop #10: Clamp Rack

11-02-2012 06:24 PM by DrPuk2U | 3 comments »

I haven’t been blogging much lately – too busy. But I have made progress on the shop as you will see if you read this and the next blog I got tired of tripping over my clamps and having them all over the shop. I saw a couple of clamp racks on the web that looked good. Initially, I was going to go with one that was very simple but used a fair amount of wall space. Then I saw one that Stumpy Nubs created. I thought the general idea was good, so I copied his. Actually, I bou...

Home improvement and Repair #2: Built in Home Library and Entertainment Center

10-05-2012 04:49 PM by C_Philhower | 1 comment »

This is a recap of a project I did almost 2 years ago, but wanted to post it online and just got around to it now. My Wife and I have a room in our basement that was partially finished by the previous owners of our home. For the first year and a half that we owned the house the room had a dartboard, an XBox and TV, a futon and about a dozen boxes of books. The walls were already sheet rocked and painted, carpet was installed and there was even an attempt at a tray ceiling with a small ceil...

Pallet Craft #8: Bunk Bed Recycled Quick Fix!

07-20-2012 01:03 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...

Outdoor Furniture #12: Patio Planter Boxes - Finished!

06-26-2012 10:44 PM by Retsof | 1 comment »

I finished painting my patio planter boxes today. I like the way they came out. Thanks to the mortise and tenon, and panel construction, they are very sturdy. The were a lot of dadoes, mortises, tenons, and trim to cut for this project, but it was a lot of fun fitting all the pieces together. The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot. Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was fi...

My Workbench Saga #1: Three tries to get a good bench.

06-16-2012 11:30 PM by Bob B. | 3 comments »

My Workbench Saga I am a relatively new woodworker. I had grand visions of building furniture when I started on this quest nearly five years ago but all I have managed to actually build are storage sheds, animal shelters, and a couple of amateur shelving units that I am embarrassed to show anyone with real skills. My journey toward building an actual piece of furniture I can be proud of has progressed in fits and starts. I have read countless books, magazines, web articles, and forum posts...

Out in the shop #1: Upper Shop Cabinets $36.70

05-28-2012 12:58 AM by MichaelAgate | 8 comments »

Matthew and I were going to do a video this weekend but got side tracked with the need for storage. Things are piling up and disorder is setting in. Time to get things in order a little. Last week I added a drawing for shop cabinets to the free plans section on www.thenewfoundlandwoodworker.com . They are very basic, and cheap. This is them :)Mind the doors, they are stuck on with double faced tape for now. Hinges Monday Cabinet Size14 1/4×33 1/4 Materials1 sheet 5/8 D grade pl...

Table Saw Workstation #1: A Beginning

05-15-2012 01:31 AM by scamp238 | 5 comments »

I have decided to build a table saw workstation. I am on a tight budget, so I am doing this with lumber that I have picked up from various places. I haven’t really paid for any of it save the gas I use to pick it up. Some of it was brought to me by coworkers and friends. I bought a Craftsman contractor table saw several months ago for $75.00. It had one of those metal stands below it with some small casters. It held the saw, but the space below the saw is basically wasted. Since my s...

2012 Bodega Bay Fish Fest Wooden Boat Challenge

05-10-2012 04:24 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

3 hours. 2 sheets of cheap CDX 3/8” plywood, 10 1×2s, 2 2×2s, a sheet of plastic, 2 tubes of caulk, a bunch of deck screws, a few nails, some rope, some ductape, a few other details. Hand tools only, except for battery powered drill/drivers. And then you race. An amazing day out at the end of April in Bodega Bay here in Sonoma County in Northern California, I highly recommend coming out for it, either as a contestant (and this two-year winner is thinking about ways to appro...

Homemade tools and hardware #3: Quickslap pen lathe update

05-02-2012 09:01 PM by Sodabowski | 7 comments »

Hi guys, On the “fast & furious” series, I had some nice time with the parents at our countryside home, and grabbed a mahogany cutoff in one of them bins, cut it to size and brought it back home (along with some goodies for someone here that will recognize himself ;) Just attached it to the pen lathe (drill press helped drill and countersink the holes), the previous part was a crappy plywood chunk which edge was quite worn off, resulting in less than linear motion fo...
