Dave's Workshop #9: My Multipurpose Router Station

01-21-2015 05:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

When I built the router table as an extension of my table saw I had in mind using it as more than a router station. For starters it allows me to make wider rips on my table saw, but it does a few more things and I’m not done yet. [Above and below] Like others of its brethren, my router station can be used with or without the fence. I have a vacuum port set in the fence as well as one for the cabinet depending on which one I think will work best. [Below] The router is mount...

Morris style glider #8: Gluing of laminated armrest

01-18-2015 09:29 PM by Orange008 | 2 comments »

Three thin pieces make up the lamination of one arm and are glued on a form. The form is made of scrap plywood and cut according to the dimensions in the plans. Each piece is slathered in glue and then bent around the form and clamped into place. After drying, the clamps are removed. One edge is trued up and flattened with a jack plane and then the curve laid out on the opposite side and cut on the bandsaw. More sanding and shaping need to be done as well as the mortises for the tenons on the...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #2: A half scale prototype

01-15-2015 08:25 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).

How to make a Fire Wood Holder from an old washing machine Tub.

01-12-2015 04:37 AM by cpine | 3 comments »

This old washing machine tub was what my father used in our home growing unto store firewood by the fire place. When my father passed away in November of 2012 and upon the settling of his estate I was able to get this item with all of its sentimental value to me for use in my home. To many folks including many in my family this is just an old piece of junk. It indeed could be sold for scrap metal I suppose but I like my fathers idea and I suspect he got this from his parents home in Iowa. I...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Work Shop Organization #1: Power Tool Storage

01-01-2015 02:15 PM by Nate66 | 1 comment »

In trying to keep my workshop organized and clutter free so I can work at my bench without having to search for tools, I found a definite need for somewhere to keep my power tools besides in their original boxes. Their original boxes keeps them organized, however, it makes them less accessible and frankly a pain in the rear to unpack and repack the tool each time it is used. Also the original boxes take up a lot of storage space when you have a confined space to work in to start with. ...
