Making a TV stand

08-05-2011 12:57 AM by Angela | 0 comments »

Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...

Have you ever heard....

07-28-2011 07:14 AM by CryptKeeper | 13 comments »

Have you ever heard, “I don’t have the tools to build anything useful” or “If I had your tools I could build that too”? I can’t tell you the number of times someone has made these comment after seeing my shop. Anyway, today I was at my company’s warehouse and the guys were complaining they need a large work surface to lay the parts out on when they are rebuilding the factory machinery. The problem is the manager wouldn’t approve them purchasing new workbenches – (there is a long story...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #3: Rolling Tool Cart

05-31-2011 09:40 AM by rance | 3 comments »

I got the inspiration for this from Workbench Magazine . I deliberately did not look at their drawings for dimensions or scale. This cart looked like a good design. As with many projects, it is infinitely easier to customize an existing design rather than come up with all original ideas. How many times do we stand on the shoulders of giants that have gone before us? The inner structure: I replaced the pegboard on theirs with 1/2” plywood thinking I would simply screw to...

My eleven-year-old student finished up his Mother’s Day Box last Thurs. The box has been a three-to-four month process. He’s learned a lot…especially how to fix broken parts. The full design & build process can be found here.

52 Weeks #8: Week 8- Of Plywood, Practice and Cleaning up.

02-28-2011 04:05 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I have to say I have had a real good week in the shop and I am quite happy with the outcome. As noted earlier on in this series I have been wanting to get things a bit more organized and also get my lathe cleaned off and able to be used. So I spent a good portion of time this week working on a new cabinet (still needs doors but I will make them this time I promise) and some drawers for my powertool bench, all of which gave me some good practice. The best part is that I did not need to buy any...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #218: Making Lemonade from a Snowflake

01-07-2011 02:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

It is amazing to me just how much difference the way you look at something can make. Looking at something with a different attitude and perspective can magically change something from unpleasant or distasteful to something that is fun and exciting. Physically, nothing at all has really changed. Only the way we look at it. This is an incredible power that we all have within ourselves. It costs nothing, takes none of our time and all we need to do is consciously apply it and it can make al...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #4: Wheeled stand for my new planer

12-30-2010 10:42 PM by Brad_Nailor | 4 comments »

My new Steel City Helical head Planer is on the way…unfortunately, I waited too long to place the order and it wont be here till Monday. But, that leaves me plenty of time to build a stand for it. I was going to put it on the furniture dolly my borrowed planer lived on, but I would rather have it bolted to a wheeled stand I can just move into position and plug it in to power and dust collection. I considered buying one…ya, for about ten seconds! I designed this stand based on the ...

Just completed my second woodworking related video. This one about a plywood cutting table that sits on my Folding Sawhorses and makes my life much easier when it comes time to rip down some sheets of plywood or MDF. Hope you all enjoy!

Shipyard Memories #9: The Catboats: Framed Plywood Construction, Scarfing and Setup

12-07-2010 11:03 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

Plywood construction probably presents the easiest method for an amateur to build a good boat, but it is also useful a useful construction for a professional shop wanting to satisfy a customer who doesn’t have a large budget. It is a straightforward process and the plans tend to be easy to follow but there are a few tricks of the trade which I will try to cover. The two boats covered here are quite different sisters from the same plan. The first, “Catspaw” was built on s...

Band Saw Rip Fence made in the Shop

11-10-2010 12:21 AM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) The band saw rip fence is an invaluable saw accessory that is easy to build and provides for the safe operation when ripping low profile material. This at certain times cannot be provided by the manufacturer’s band saw fence. Obviously, when working at the tool the woodworker wants to limit the exposure of the band saw blade for reasons of safety. The workshop made band...
