Shop Evolution #1: Distractions...

11-05-2012 02:24 PM by JJones98042 | 3 comments »

I had originally started this blog to document the progress of my new shop and its evolution from a “room with tools” to a fully featured, organized and outfitted shop space. We finished the interior and built the “outter room” for the compressor and cyclone. Now its just a matter of building all the cabinets, mobile bases, workstations, etc to really make the shop fun to work in! The progress of the shop was put on-hold this summer after I got my lathe. I spent a f...

Craftsman 113.27610 Restoration #2: Finishing up assembly for the most part. And breaking things!

05-06-2013 12:14 AM by JawShoeAh | 3 comments »

Day number two feels good. You made so much progress last night, and it’s almost done. So you jump right in, and decided to put your trunions on and figure this thing out. 3 long screws hold them on. ...well, easier to put them on first, then flip the whole show onto the table top I think. Bam. You got this. ...That’s supposed to be behind that. (swear a lot) Rent a bearing puller. Hooray. Just like day number two feels so good, so does doing things twice. Ho...

Holtzapffel Workbench: Decision Time. Could use your input.

04-02-2010 04:03 AM by jcontract | 3 comments »

Ok. It’s time to place the Workmate aside and build a real bench. Don’t get me wrong, the Workmate served me well these few years, and it still has its place (wrapping newspaper comes to mind). Time to build a real bench. I’ve done the research, read the Schwarz, and even helped a friend build his bench. It’s my time! So I went to the Woodworking in America show in Valley Forge PA last October and as luck would have it, there was a company offering kiln dried Ash 12...

Work in Progress #1: Patio Side Table in Cedar

10-07-2010 02:10 PM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

I started this project a while ago, but because of work haven’t had much time to work on it. By the time I’m done, it should be just in time to put it up for the winter! Oh well. This is my first project entirely done with hand tools. This is the top, 20” square and 1 3/8” thick. The legs are 4×4’s but planed down to a little less than 3.5” I’m not sure if these M&T joints have an official name, but they’re more li...

Crown Molding #2: Coping, Paint, 1/2 Install, and a New Direction

06-09-2010 06:16 AM by Todd Clare | 3 comments »

Progress! After cutting the modling on the jig (which worked really well, by the way), some coping saw skill building and some creative Dremel-ing, the end of the first 12’ piece was complete: The first piece destined for the wall was one of the 14’ pieces, so I cut that square on both ends. Patty then painted them with the primer and pain we selected, Benjamin Moore Navajo White in Semi-Gloss (see modification, below). We left the 12’ piece in its original 14...

Mikros Kosmos #17: A little update.

08-03-2010 06:06 AM by tyskkvinna | 3 comments »

this is what the table looks like un-taped. I also added the inlay which I think ties it into the rest of the house really well. I have to say, there is something about the balance between modern and the traditional. This is what it looks like from above. So what I did to the sink was spray it with satin nickle paint and then clear gloss. It gives an interesting look when it is finished, I think. I like it. I encountered a minor problem with the doors upstairs. The epoxy I po...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #7: The box joint drawers

09-12-2010 12:37 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Continuing my progress I decided that the box joint, per the plan, was the way to go. Instead of 5 drawers I did four. I had all 5 cut, but figured one extra big drawer would be more useful than 3 smaller, so I used the biscuit joiner to combine one of the two big ones with one of the small. It saved me from buying more wood and gave me more practice with the joiner. I checked around for plans for a box joint jig and decided that the one from (PlansNow) was the better of the ...
