Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

10-01-2011 11:26 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #3: Material cut sheet - Plywood for Two

10-16-2011 01:09 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I tried using cutlist for sketchup and it didn’t make great choices so I flattened out the sheet goods and made sure they fit onto a sheet of plywood precut to 2ft x 4ft. There is enough material to make two nightstands. Material identification: Material Sizes:

Homemade router milling machine ready to launch for others to enjoy.

02-08-2013 02:28 AM by Mark55 | 8 comments »

I have posted my machine on here a couple times and kept promising that I was going to get it to the point where I would have plans ready for it. This has turned out to be a very daunting task . At first glance of the machine it does not look too overwhelming. But, when you break it down there are many many parts and details to make this thing work the way it does. Before I go any farther though there is one person on here I want to thank for all the help . I would not have gotten this far wi...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

Having a Senior Moment....Help?

01-31-2009 07:17 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I need help finding an article/plan to make a US flag that holds the 50 state quarters. I saw the article/plan somewhere recently (in the last couple months) don’t remember what magazine or web site I saw it in/on. I’ve looked thru probably 100 magazine back issues, searched in LJ’s, and Googled it, no luck. I do remember one thing about it for sure, it said to buy the wooden stars at a craft store. The flag it’s self was waved like it would be blowing in the wind ...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

I got me a new Birthday toy

02-21-2007 01:28 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

Ever since I seen the review on the Triton Routers, I just had to get one. What’s a better time than on your birthday. Barb & I have an agreement about birthday gifts. We usually choose something we desire. That’s all the surprise we need. It arrived here two days before, so I’ve been holding back on reporting this to you Lumberjocks. After examining it in my hands, I have to say it’s the Cadillac of all of the Routers.
