Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench #11: frustration and more learning...

11-02-2014 12:53 PM by rhybeka | 4 comments »

The other night I was finally able to get back out to the shop. I was excited about starting to get to some of the detail work on the pieces. Got the measurements transferred from the SU to the ply pieces, and set up my square to being my edge guide (mistake #1 but I thought it was a good idea at the moment). Even used a piece of scrap to remind me not to run the bit all the way through the L and K pieces I had screwed down. so with this setup, I continued routing my bench dog holes. I...

A Sliding Door #3: Mortising, part 1

11-02-2014 03:01 AM by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Spawn of Satan broke through the gates to hell last night. And this morning. Not too difficult, really, if some human forgets to close the gate all the way. The cat “screamed and leapt” at the dog, according to my daughter. Kind of like a Kzin, I thought. Needless to say, I sense there’s some urgency to get the door done. Here’s what the current “gate” looks like Not sure that the shoes are adding anything. The track will be fastened to the ...

Router Table & Unit #2: Frame for Router Box

10-30-2014 02:26 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So I used 2×1 poplar to frame out where I will house the router.. I will be using 3/4 MDF .. That’s next I will need to custom cut the MDF to fit and I’m just praying that I put the frame pieces in the right place so support the MDF and that it also looks symmetrical as Dara’s where the drawers will be going on the sides!

Wheel loader T and J Cat 966 #2: Lathe work

10-26-2014 06:51 PM by Dutchy | 2 comments »

It is a time ago I started making the wheels for my T and J wheelloader. A long time I didn,t have time to work on it. But last week I restarted. First I drilled a hole in the wheel with a 50 mm (2”) bore and than turned the wheels as you can see on below picture: Now I could turn the wheel 180 degrees and do the other side: Turning work was done and now I had to do some testings for the groves. I made four wheels from oak and one from beech for the testing work. First I ma...

Miniature Router Table

10-26-2014 11:19 AM by iamcliff | 6 comments »

I had to roundover the edges of some small work-pieces. I have a router table, but the Craftsman router that goes with it needs some work before I can use it safely. So, I used a scrap piece of melamine and threw together this mini router table. Thought it might help someone else in a similar situation, so I made a video. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVU1LbCxGcY Or click the picture below:

Router Table Build #1: Table Top construction

10-25-2014 05:55 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Started building a new Router Table after I tipped over my store bought one. So far I’ve built the table top from (2) sheets of 3/4 MDF I glued together. The I routed channels for t-tracks, a Jessem Router raiser purchased from Rockler, and a fence system from Woodpecker. I bought the Ultimate Fence system with the intent of expanding it to a 48” fence. The part of this build is to design the cabinet with dust collection port. I’m thinking of including a slidin...

On the Workbench #2: Jig for Batch Cutting Mortises

10-16-2014 06:49 AM by ontheworkbench | 0 comments »

In the process of building a crib, I ended up needed an efficient way to cut 76 perfectly aligned mortises for vertical slats. I designed the slats to be 1/2” thick and then rounded over both edges of the slat witha 1/4” round over bit to create the shape of the slat. Then using a 1/2” upsprial router bit and homemade jig I was able cut 1/2” wide mortise to fit the 1/2 thick slats and then the rounded over slat edges would fit perfectly into the rounded ends of these ...

Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #7: Marble Pieces for Scary Sharp Sharpening & Cheap Trim Router Fix

10-08-2014 04:04 PM by Paul Bucalo | 8 comments »

As I struggle to get my dungeon workshop together before the cold weather makes it impossible to work outdoors, I’m slowly finding inexpensive resources and coming across cheap fixes. I was in our local hardware box store yesterday to pick up some rope caulk for our 100-year-old windows—this is an annual event—and decided to see if I could get a granite floor tile for sanding chisels on. In our fair little ‘city’ it’s impossible to buy just one tile and no ...
