Power Tool Storage

09-29-2011 07:02 AM by Trev_Batstone | 3 comments »

Because my workshop is in my garage and space is at a premium, I have had to make use of available space for storing some of my power tools. In this photo, You can see my compound mitre saw sitting high on a shelf near the ceiling, and my router table hangs from that shelf by two sturdy chains. It is out of the way, giving me as much floor space as possible in my confined workshop.

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #10: Corner blocks

09-15-2011 04:48 PM by sras | 2 comments »

I have two kinds of projects. Some are the smaller ones that get wrapped up in a matter of days or weeks. I do several of these each year. Some are planned while others are done as the need pops up. The others are bigger. They take on a life of their own. They can last for months and years. They get set aside and left gathering dust – sometimes for months. But I don’t mind. I know that I will finish them and I would rather take a few years to complete a project than to have ...

Shop in the Sky #5: Lathe Table with dust collection

09-09-2011 11:00 PM by EROCK | 2 comments »

Newest addition to the ongoing project is a new table for my mini lathe. I had issues before with chips/dust collecting under the motor, causing it to get extremely hot. My solution to this was to use the table saw dust collection hood that I had laying around and inset it into the table top. I feel this will adequately stop the dust from collecting, as well as cause a stream of cool air to constantly be passing by the motor, causing it to run much cooler. After I get a chance to test o...

Marble Machine

09-08-2011 08:18 AM by thiswoodshop | 5 comments »

I Stumbled on to this by chance, this is definitely a unique approach to woodworking. I love this. Per the description On Site: This is a Marble Machine (definition: A Do-Nothing or Rube Goldberg Type Machine) This is intended to be an awkward, overly complicated mechanism for the sole purpose of entertainment and to make noise in the process. People seem to enjoy watching gears turn and marbles running around in circles making noise. There are 16 gears hand-cut from ½” Bal...

Arts & Crafts - Living room tables #2: Coffee table - mostly done

09-07-2011 12:25 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 5 comments »

My 16-year old son built this Arts and Crafts coffee table almost completely on his own. He built it from plans. We did minor parts together. I stained and he wiped the stain to get consistent finish between the pieces. The plans do not have a tile top so we did some improvising. He made through tenons and a frame for the top. We had to do some improvising since things didn’t line up exactly on the top since the tenons were so long. In the end, we cut the tenons shorter and used plug...

Foldable Router Table #1: The Idea

09-07-2011 01:59 AM by abadr | 1 comment »

Even though I have a decent size garage/shop, all tools need to be tucked away neatly since the space is used for metal working, photography, working on cars and of course parking. So space hogging fixed tools are avoided whenever possible. The idea for this router table is to take an inexpensive foldable table and replace the top with a thick, straight and strong MDF top for routing. I will then be able to collapse the table and stow it next to a wall taking little space. The original top...
