Used tools (from Craigslist, EBay, etc.)

08-04-2012 02:30 PM by DouginVa | 12 comments »

You ever see people leave posts on Craiglist for used tools that say in “good condition”, etc. and the asking price is average, or above average? Some times they mis-identify the tool and label it what they think it is. Then you view the pic (if one is attached) and it’s an old rusty hunk of metal? Are these some people cleaning out their parents garage and finding an old handplane, take the name(s) off the item, and place a value on the tool…..without doing any res...

My Dovetail Jig Buying Journey #1: The first 25 Years.

05-12-2013 03:16 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I spent yesterday playing with my newest joinery jig – the Incra LS-Positioner Super System. Others have already reviewed the Incra and rated it 5-stars (and I agree with them 110%). So instead of a review I thought I’d tell you about the personal journey of 25 years it took to get to the Incra. My dovetail obsession began in the 80’s when I was new to woodworking and hand skills were non-existent. I had plans for a small chest that required half-blind dovetails so I went and b...

Bunk Bed Build #2: Cutting the Legs, Prep Rails, Cut Mortices

07-08-2013 03:24 PM by Mauricio | 14 comments »

Wow I got a lot done yesterday. My wife and I also painted are bedroom in between woodworking sesions. She did the lower part of the walls, when she was done I’d go in and paint the top. I’m sore today! But it feels good. So I cut the legs to length by hand. The chop saw wasnt cutting accuratly enough for me so I cut these to length with a knife, a saw and my new bench hook. Then took the #4 to the end grain. Choped the Head and Foot board rails to length. Then ...

Custom Buffet #5: Drawer Fronts and Brick!

10-26-2013 04:52 PM by MT_Stringer | 10 comments »

Time to make the frames for the drawer fronts. The pieces were narrow and some were small so I set up a featherboard to help safely guide the pieces past the cutter. They turned out nice. The drawer fronts will have flat panels. I could have used either plywood or mdf but NO! Instead, I glued up some short pieces of poplar, planed them to almost 3/8 inch thick, then ran them through the drum sander. Next, it was cut to final size, then rout a rabbit in the rear so the panels would fit i...

MacGyvering #1: the router

06-02-2007 04:48 PM by scottb | 18 comments »

My cousin (first, once removed if you're keeping score) has a knack for finding deals -closeouts, and so on. He recently found himself at Sears looking at some routers on clearance - all former displays, out of the box, never used, selling for $31 a piece. Too good a deal to pass up, he bought all four. Of course, he didn't need all four, so calls were made to try to unload a couple before he got in trouble with the missus. Sure. I'll take one or two at that price! Naturally he w...

A journey into the workshop. #29: Making progress on the extension wing.

12-18-2009 06:45 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Up until now the extension wing to the BT3100 has been a simple two layer 3/4” pine ply lamination. Simply a nice, flat table top. That is all about to change… LOML gave me an early Christmas present of a Bench Dog Pro Plate and Rockler insert template, and I have some Rockler miter track just laying around, so it was time to measure up where I wanted everything, and write is down. 5.25” in from each side, 7” in from the end. Miter slot in 5.5” from the end. ...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...
