Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #1: Cutting out parts, & starting assembly.

1621 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

DANGER! Chinese Plywood

2332 days ago by Tom Adamski | 46 comments »

Yes it’s cheap, and most of the time it will warp as soon as it is removed from the stack, but it can also be dangerous. Acording to an employee at Owl Hardwood in Lombard, IL, there is an instance where metal was found between the plys. The consumer that bought it found what appeared to be a utility knife blade while he was ripping the sheet on a table saw and in doing so, destroyed his blade. No coments if the person was injured, but I would not want to be around when pieces of ca...

Workbench 101

2390 days ago by PanamaJack | 24 comments »

Over the past several years I have been needing and wanting to buy or maybe just make a workbench. I have gone to five woodworking shows in three states over the past two years. At these shows and in several magazines or catalogs I have noticed many of these really nice woodworking benches that are way far out of my reach as far as the $$$ involved. Finally after a elongated sick spell lasting nearly two months I finally get few boards together, screws, a very few nails and other items tha...

Simplicity Wooden Clock #2: Back to the Old Drawing Board...

1593 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

So, after what feels like months, I was able to do something in the woodworking arena. I ran over to MacBeath’s in Berkeley, CA and grabbed some quality plywood. Then I came home and drew up almost the entire clock in AutoCAD, measuring everything very carefully on the original plans with digital calipers. The point being, instead of gluing the plans to the plywood, cutting them out, hence destroying the original plans, I’m going to have a fellow LJ cut the gears out of the ply...

Work(shop) in Progress #3: Bosch 4100 TS - Zero-Clearance Inserts

2238 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

I got a few questions about the zero-clearance inserts I made for my bosch table saw, so I figured I’d post the procedure here as to how I made those. The basic Idea is to take the factory inserts and use that as a template for the router. but alas, the factory insert is just too thin at some points to be able to follow it with a trim router bit, so to tackle this issue I made an initial template out of 1/2” plywood. This first template took a bit more patience and care so that...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #5: Finishing the boards

611 days ago by StephenSchaad | 6 comments »

This post will show you the way I finish the boards. I will not be painting these yet but I have included a link at the bottom for customization help. I just want to show you how to build the boards and prepare them for paint or stain. The first step in finishing the boards is flush trimming the plywood to the frame. If you don’t have a flush trim bit, you can just sand it down if it’s not too far off. I also like to adjust my flush bit to smooth out the inside of the hole....

Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #1: Inspiration, Research, and SketchUp Drawing

1727 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

Well I have been so focused on getting my new old Unisaw tweaked and settled in it’s new home I forgot that I need some essentials for it’s operation. I wanted to fire it up and try and cut some big slabs of birch butcher block to test its power, but I realized one thing…they are big pieces and I don’t have an out feed table! So, basically I cant cut anything bigger than 10 inches…and what fun is that? So I was browsing through the projects and came upon this pro...

Work(shop) in Progress #5: Drill Press Table

1984 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I cannot take full credit for this, as this is an upgrade I’ve made to my old drill press table with an idea I’ve seen on Woodscrap’s workshop page. My original table was just 3/4” birch plywood, which was too thin, and when I installed the t-tracks in it, the slot I routed left the plywood useless as there wasnt enough material left to keep it sturdy, and not enough material for the screws to hold into. The new table is 3/4” birch ply laminated with hardboard...

Simplicity Wooden Clock #1: The Plan

1644 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Since I can’t afford a bunch of quarter sawn white oak to finish the dining table right now, I thought I’d look for a project that requires less materials. Having just read “Longitude” by Dava Sobel, I’ve been fascinated by wooden clocks. Being a Mechanical Engineer, I also have an affinity for anything with gears. I found woodgears.ca few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...

Shop Organization #3: Flip Top-Planer Cart Part 1. and Screw Thread Question

2412 days ago by gizmodyne | 12 comments »

Planer cartI decided to build a flip top cart for my planer. I looked through several forums, magazines, and plans and decided on a hybrid of the Wood and Woodsmith plans. My drawings and notes. I am using plywood left from building the shop. It is a rough luan. A different look for shop stuff. My first rip with the SawStop. Very cool. Dead accurate. So different from using my little Ridgid. The top is made of two matching pieces. I cut a dado in the top to house a 1/2” ste...
