Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube

I am sure many other folks have thought about this when they got their house. I am a truck driver and I am limited mostly on time. but i am for the first time in my life venturing out to do something that i have wanted to do for many years. This past Sunday, 12/11/16 I met with my parents about a house that i have loved since I was 10 years old. As a kid we moved in next door to this old man that would quickly become one of my closest childhood friends. The man that showed me how wonder...
So I’m down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor’s office. I rarely visit the office for a “Sick Call” but I do take care of their computers. It’s always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year. My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I’ve been meaning to make some ever since. I had some ...
So i have this beautiful walnut slab which i turned into a bench. Right now its all sanded to 180- planning on sanding to 220 all around. My issue is the finish! I put boiled linseed oil on a test piece i cut and i hated the way it yellowed the edges where the bark was. I want a dark look, satin finish. I don’t mind the sap/bark wood being lighter then the heart wood but closer the better i think. I have never used water based DYES iv only worked with oil stains. Any advice!? plus I...
View on YouTube Hi folks! So this past weekend I turned a bunch of free industrial pallets into a new workbench! I still have to add a vice and some shelving down below, but the main bench is finished!
It has been a long time, but a new chapter is starting in my families life. Since my last entry almost three years ago I have moved to Fla and lived in three different houses on 2 different coasts. I have continuously worked 12-15 hours a day 5-6 days a week. I have spent very little time on my work bench and have focused on spending any of my extra time with my girls. As of right now I am unemployed and looking for work back on the WV/MD area. This is the area we have decided is ̶...
I got a text from my wife who was out at a meeting this morning. Says she has some carpentry work for me, a rustic dining room table. Now I know full well, this is not for us. We don’t even have a dining room! So that means this is to be paid work! I only hope the customer isn’t too picky on details and such. Those of you who have read my profile know that tables are about as big as I go for projects. I have a small shop and usually do big stuff outside. It’s Octob...
Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...
