Bowling Alley Workbench #3: Back to Square1... Committed to new Design - legs are ready.

1762 days ago by PurpLev | 15 comments »

so After setting on the last design (see previous post in this series) I went out to disassemble the bowling alley laminated top – the purpose was to remove all the nails, so that I can drill the dog holes, and also laminate it in a double stack to give me a 4” top on the perimeter (5” in from the edges – for clamping purposes, and leg attachments). This idea turned to be disastrous. The nails are hardened steel, and twisted making the job of pulling them outridicul...

Bowling Alley Workbench #2: Design B...B...Because I said so. -more criticism please

1780 days ago by PurpLev | 18 comments »

So after giving some food for though, and going back and forth between 2 designs – my original one: and the Roubo Bench (the one I was drooling over was Jameel’s bench from handcrafted vises), I decided to take the things that would work best for me today, based on materials that I have available today – while keeping an open door for future changes. here are the features I am going for: 1. wagon vise – tail vise abilities, without the sagging, and without...

Garbage Can Holder #2: Lid Is On!

1864 days ago by MyOldGarage | 5 comments »

Last night I rushed home to get the lid on the trash can holder. I was pretty anxious to move the box one step closer to done status. It’s still not done . . .need to add some trim and other things to make it look “purty” but I think it’s getting there. A master craftsman I’m not . . . but my mistakes are a learning experience. :-) Yep . . that’s the trash can (with trash even) in it’s soon to be new home. I haven’t sanded the lid ar...

Progress Photos: Building Rachel's Woodie Hoop (round wood toy inspired by a hoola hoop)

2039 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 24 comments »

With all of the “Hoopla” associated with my recent blog, and Quixote's Project posting on the subject, I just about had to submit and build the toy for her. After all, using the thorough 2-Step plans she provided, how hard could it be? Well, just count all of the Steps I used, and add up the dollar amount of all of the tools I used in the process, and it’s a pretty daunting little project, for a fact. Sure, buying a plastic ring at the big department store would be ch...

DIY Lathe #2: The better base!

2156 days ago by Marcel T | 2 comments »

Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...

Cleanup Progress #2: 3 weeks of boxes

2507 days ago by rookster | 2 comments »

Cleaning is a little like dieting: you get great progress at the beginning and the result is easy to see. I’ve been very consistent about the workshop cleanup over the last three weeks: Tuesday nights are strictly reserved for dealing with trash and clutter; Thursday nights I get to do something a little more fun, like setting up and tuning the Radial Arm Saw or clearing the workbenches for use weekends allow for projects of any type (I’ve just been clearing little fix-it tasks in...
