Board Game Travel Case #3: Starting Over

08-31-2011 07:09 AM by ChadR | 0 comments »

I decided to go back and redo the exterior walls. I wanted to learn how to use my router anyways so I thought I should start here. I am not sure whats its call but I make grooves for the shelving units to fit into as well as the front face of the case. I was originally just going to have it set in place and clasp onto the front but thought it would look nice if it had a channel to rest into. The router works great and I think i got the hang of it. So far everything is coming out much nicer th...

Building the Shop #11: Can't wait ANYMORE!

08-23-2011 05:51 AM by Lance | 4 comments »

Well LJ’s it’s TIME!!!! I’ve been waiting for the heat to go away but I guess it’s still August and it looks like it’s not going anywhere. I need to install a couple 110V outlets before I really start knocking out some projects but I can’t wait anymore!!! I’ve had a couple shop furniture projects on the top of my “to-do” list like the Ultimate Miter Station, the Torsion Assembly Out Feed Table, Planer Table but now with the addition of ...

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Attempting the.. well.. improbable

08-19-2011 06:06 AM by Ryan | 4 comments »

So, the woodworking fever has struck me. Unfortunately, it has struck me to make cases for EVERYTHING. Cigarettes, Zippos, Business cards, puzzle boxes, etc… This is my next project, once I have a bit of time. I recently destroyed (Pictures to follow) my iPod 4, 32g. I mean it bent in half. How it is still “working” is a mystery to me, but I can still access everything (as long as I remember the finger movements to find it, considering the screen is in a million piec...

Myrtle Wood Burl #1: What To Do?

08-17-2011 04:21 AM by Trev_Batstone | 4 comments »

I’m just wondering what to do with this Myrtle wood burl that I picked up last month while travelling through Reedsport, Oregon while on vacation. It’s only a small burl measuring 15” wide by 12” high. I gave it a nice smooth sanding today in preparation of creating a project with it, but haven’t decided what yet. That’s why I’m putting out ‘feelers’ here if any of you have any ideas of what I could create with it. I’m not in...

Blacksmiths Anvil, a woodworking project.

08-12-2011 11:52 PM by saddletramp | 12 comments »

An anvil as a woodworking project, how could that be? Well, I started by building a jig for the router to flaten and level both ends of a cherry stump. Then I heated and bent some rod to make staples to hold the anvil down. Routed out an inset for the anvil to set into. Drilled pilot holes for the staples and drove them in. And in the end, the router jig morphed into a box for my scrap iron.

Box with Inlay lid #1: How not to do a wooden hinge

08-10-2011 09:20 AM by Tootles | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project of a box with a wooden hinge where I said ”I wouldn’t do it the same way again”. The best way to explain why is to explain how I did it. Yes, I know there are a lot of other ways of doing this, but I did it this way regardless – call it an experiment if you like. I made my box in a workshop that is part of the local education system. One of the odd constraints that put on me is that I was not allowed to use the table saw – the person in...
