My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

Ridgid TS3650 Router Table Extension #1: Compromises of Limited Space

09-17-2015 06:36 PM by jonah | 1 comment »

I have a pretty small basement shop. It’s not set up perfectly, but given the constraints I am working with, I think I’ve done pretty well with it. I have: - a very fragile-looking old water main coming in one wall about 12” above the floor- steam heating pipes bisecting the shop area right in the middle, about 6ft above the floor. I am 6’1” - a walk-out door and a set of 5 stairs leading down to the basement on one wall- about 10×22 feet of total space w...

Aalto Inspired Tea Cart #3: Refining the laminations and underwater basket weaving

07-13-2008 07:32 PM by bfd | 5 comments »

Did I mention how over my head I am with this project? Well after taking a week off from woodworking between a trip to Vegas and not being able to work in the shop due to the smokey air in the Sacramento area I am back to work. Now that I have the laminations glued up I needed to figure out a way to trim them down to finished width. I intentionally glued the laminations up at 3 1/2” knowing that I needed to yield a 2 1/2” wide leg. This was a challenge since I couldn’t u...

building a bench and stuff #4: Beginning of the leg vise

05-23-2015 03:52 PM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoothed it out of with a whatever rasp and file I had on hand. Then marked and mortised for the nut. I’ll probably put a dab of epoxy on final assembly of the nut to make sure to hold it captive. It’s damn good fit if I say so myself. ...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Laundry cabinet #1: Laundry cabinet - Part 1 - Some work on my homemade router table

03-05-2013 01:08 PM by CarpintHero | 0 comments »

I just started making a cabinet for the bottles we have in the laundry room (soap, softener, etc …) I have to make new doors for all the kitchen cabinets, so, this project will be used as a test for an a idea I had. It is made from MDF, and the doors will have some slots, imitating some sort of raised panel. I’m really happy of the progress so far. Next task will be painting it. Here is the video I made of it … (sorry, it’s in spanish, but feel free to ask if ...
