New Bench #2: The Plan 1.2

12-17-2014 04:36 PM by Rhoots | 1 comment »

Well I think I’ve designed this thing to death. This weekend I’ll buy the timbers for the base and get the drying started. That will probably take a few months.In the mean time, I have a few other projects to do; Tool Cart, Garden Table, Planer Trolley. Here’s the link to the final design in SketchUp: Workbench

Path To A New Workshop #3: Legs & Base Frame Completed

12-17-2014 08:20 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

As promised, two more days of work as produced results. I did get one surprise through this process. I expected the whole thing to be sturdy, that is how its designed after all. I might have gone a bit overboard. It actually takes effort to make it wiggle at all and my female hung off of one side and shook around, the bench didn’t move. So success there. Anyways, on with the pictures. So the legs are done, obviously, here is what they look like with their first of two cross pieces...

Student desk #3: Please give me time!

12-16-2014 02:20 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I tried to post part 3 of this blog yesterday and ran into trouble. The wi-fi card finally gave up the ship. It had been aching to be replaced for a few months. Last night, it stopped complaining altogether. It’s HISTORY. That the second fix to this PC in 3 days. Grrr…. Oh yeah – part 3. Not a lot to share. I got the desk top sanded down to 320 yesterday. Then I rubbed in the first coat of tongue oil. Len had already warned me about the way the plywood was go...

Flat Screen Table Build #1: Design and top glue up and machine

12-15-2014 10:13 PM by Brodan | 3 comments »

Recently my family and I moved from West Texas to Northeast Tennessee. As part of the process we all put some specific wants on a wish list as we began looking for our new home. For me it was space for a woodshop. Mission accomplished. Over the years, I have completed countless woodworking projects as needed during remodels of our homes, but I’ve had minimal experience building furniture. So with that in mind….. I have designed and am building a table for our flat screen TV. T...

Arts and Crafts Dining Table and Chairs #1: Design and Table Top Glue-up

12-15-2014 05:02 PM by Marshall | 4 comments »

I’ve been planning this project for quite some time. I actually started building reproduction Gustav Stickley Spindle chairs about three years ago. Other projects and a move got in the way, and they’ve been sitting disassembled in my closet for quite a while now. I decided to start the dining room project back up recently but to start with the table. Once the table is complete, I’ll at least have a usable dining table that I can scrounge chairs up to use with while I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1461: Catching Up

12-15-2014 02:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had taken a few days "off" from blogging because I wanted to spend some time doing things around the house here and enjoying the season. Keith and I work hard all year long and I was feeling like I was working right through the holidays, and getting a bit frazzled. It didn't take long for me to catch up on some of the things that I wanted to do around the house though, and I really accomplished a great deal. I reorganized some things here – which I feel is really importa...

Path To A New Workshop #2: Primary Cuts & Leg Mockup

12-15-2014 09:30 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

So today is my one day off which means time to be productive. So once laying some new tile got dealt with, I was free to get to work on the bench. First off, some pictures to show the current state of the garage. So the first picture is of the garage itself, mind the girlfriend in the back there. Its currently a mess. Mostly due to stuff that still needs to migrate into the house and stuff that needs to go into the attic. The second picture is of my current bench. 12’ Long ...

Path To A New Workshop #1: The Intro/Situation

12-15-2014 12:09 AM by Vactet | 2 comments »

Hi folks.Well first post here. Found out about this site from Pintrest pins leading to it and found it extremely helpful. Figured I’d chronicle my not-so-little project here via these blogs. So here we go. [WARNING: This entry is going to be highly text heavy] Short history lesson first. Started my own business in June of this year (2014). Was currently living in a house that I was renting for various reasons but had every intent of buying a house shortly. Prior to that lived in a Co...

Working title - LLB #7: So much to do ...

12-14-2014 06:43 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

... so little time. Why do weekdays crawl by and weekends go before you know it. Well Somethingbrownwood is not going to do for the bottom of this box. A phrase I’m sure Shipwright is well aware of I don’t want to ‘spoil the ship for a ha’peth of tar’. I have a little Mondo left. This I re-sawed into four 2 mm slices. On the table saw, you don’t want to know. I made veneers of this piece( outside bottom of the box), a filler and some 1.5 mm...

New "bench' for a router table

12-13-2014 08:01 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Last summer, I picked up a router “table” by SKIL at a garage sale. $20 with everything BUT a router Later on, picked a B&D 1/4” Industrial all metal router. Managed to assemble the two together But, there were a couple problems. First, this thing is sitting ON my tool chest. Secondly, it is too short to set on the floor. Had some metal 3×3 from an old bed frame. Cut the two pieces down into four “legs” @ 27-1/4” long. Had some ...
