Craigslist V8 Workbench #1: Day 1 - 3 hours

06-13-2013 03:01 AM by getlostinwood | 1 comment »

I was inspired by Shipwrights V8 work bench. In particular the lack of purchased parts, vises being the biggest expense. Short of a couple bolts, screws, and nails everything is shop made. With laminated plywood as the building block it occurred to me that there is an ability to gather a significant amount of plywood on Craigslist for little to nothing. I wanted to set some guidelines that would make it possible for pretty much anyone to create a good to great bench for less than $100. 1) Rec...

Scroll saw Blade storage

05-17-2013 12:24 AM by CFrye | 8 comments »

While at Mom’s the other day I salvaged an empty pill bottle (fish oil, it’s BIG) thinking “This might be big enough to put scroll saw blades in.” Brought it home and today, while waiting for finish to dry… I tried it out and with some scrap 1/8th inch plywood made the holder. Nothing fancy. I didn’t even sand it. I made a ‘collar’ that will keep the blade ends in the center of the bottle so as to not interfere with the lid and labled it with th...

Wooden Boat Challenge: Champions 3 years running

04-29-2013 11:57 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

I mentioned winning the 2011 Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival Wooden Boat Challenge, and for some reason missed last year. Which is a shame, because last year's competition was awesome, and we trained with a group of high school guys who built a boat that floated and got around the course, and, of course, we won it. Though not without effort, there was a team that build a 20+’ outrigger canoe, as they were building we were thinking “there’s no way they’re going t...

Medal Chest #10: Router Inlay

04-22-2013 12:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Today’s task was to fit the completed carving into the front panel of the box.  To do this, I decided to mark out the area I needed and use the router my dad donated to the shop last October.  It felt good to use this o...

Entertainment Center #1: First Big Project

04-04-2013 07:04 AM by cjwelch | 1 comment »

I started this project for a friend a few months ago and will be putting the finishing touches on soon. It is a plywood box with pine face frame. I used my Kreg Jig for all the joints. This is the largest project I have tackled to date and has been a great learning experience. The plan has changed from the original drawings as we learned along the way. My wife might be a little upset that I have spent at least four times the cost of materials in new tools (and then some). I tell her it is an ...

Thickness Sander from an 8 x 4 sheet of plywood

03-21-2013 04:46 PM by Jim Rowe | 15 comments »

This is my first attempt at blogging but I thought people might be interested in the approach I took. Getting hold of consistently dimensioned timber for making boxes has always been a challenge, especially when small thicknesses are required and when the timber is hard to come by (expensive and scarce). I have seen many examples of beautiful boxes here on LJs from makers who have either made their own thickness sanders or have bought commercial equipment. For me, buying a ready made thick...

Plywood template-cut rocking bench. #3: First coat of epoxy

03-02-2013 03:19 AM by Fridgecritter | 1 comment »

Well, I decided to use epoxy after all, and it seems like it’s going to give the desired effect. I put a quart of epoxy on it for the first coat because I didn’t want it all to just run off the sides. After it dries I will put another quart on. It was surprisingly easy to work with, and had a pretty lengthy drying time. I used a flat block of wood to spread an even coat, and a foam brush to do the side parts. I ran a propane torch over the surface to take out the bubbles, which...
