The Board. A Tongue In Cheek Essay...... With Pictures Part l

39 days ago by Gene Howe | 31 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

43 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

How I built my disc sander

45 days ago by Dror | 12 comments »

It all started with a old dryer that had a very good motor. I took it out of the dryer, cleaned it and after a short inspection I decided it could use a new life. I operated the motor mounted on a short scrap wood and used a saw to shorten the shaft and then a rasp to make it suitable for my needs. Had a friend turn a 4” flange to hold an MDF disc sized 10.2” with 6 bolts. Drilled the disc and prepared the surface for flash mounting the bolts. While the ...

Your Opinion Wanted

62 days ago by Eagle1 | 10 comments »

This weekend I was going through one of my wood books. That’s about all I can do right. In the last year I had 4 surgery’s on my knee. The last one was in February when I had a seizure and actually broke my leg, I never thought that could happen. Anyway back to the book. I saw a ad about the woodmaster planer sander and molder. It was a bit weird it factory is about 45 min from my house. Anyway all comments good or bad would be helpful. Thanks Tim:

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

80 days ago by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Bedroom desk #1: Staining

90 days ago by mIps | 0 comments »

My neighbors lent me a desk for a while and, although I didn’t use it a lot (it was a bit small), I did like having it in my room. Since they took it back for their son to use, I’ve really missed having it. So I am going to attempt to build a replacement. I am using the writing desk from WWMM as a template. The sides and back are a glue-up of construction grade 3/4 ply and 5mm ply that I had from previous projects. the center spine is a glue-up of 2 pieces of 5/8” ply. The...
