Not enough guys make wooden utensils for families to buy. I took my wooden coffee coaster sets to the senior center to sell on commission in their store. They requested for me to make wooden utensils for people to buy for their kitchens and they believe the wooden utensils would be a fast seller in their store so I am designing a set for them to sell in their store. I won’t charge a arm and a leg for them as I want my set to be affordable to families. My thoughts are if you put a littl...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #7: Final Thoughts...

04-03-2011 11:28 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

Well, I think the table turned out just fine… I didn’t run into any real problems during construction…however I did notice when I was ripping the original lumber (as well as subsequent sanding) that the wood had a very strong smell to it. Not sure why – sometimes you get that from pine. Make sure if you build one of these to countersink & predrill your screw holes – otherwise, you may split the lumber. I have not put together a plan as of yet for fini...

Combo Drum Sander #3: Surface Sander, cabinet, specs, cost, observations

04-03-2011 09:55 PM by tyka | 7 comments »

This is the last of three parts detailing how I made the sander. Part 3 provides details for the surface sander attachment, photos of the final combo sander, specs, dimensions, comments, observations and a cost estimate. I found the sander too heavy to lug around and too high to use on my bench or assembly table. It’s now on a rolling cabinet made with ¾” plywood. The cabinet has two large drawers and storage in the back for the Surface Sanding Table, a place to hang a large push stick on ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #6: Adding the casters and finishing the project

04-03-2011 07:30 PM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

Well, my casters came in from my local Woodwerks store. Just as in previous entries, the casters are the most expensive part of this project. The casters I have been using lock both the wheel and the pivot as well. Without the double lock, when you push on the table, the pivot will spin – and you can move the table – even when locked. Let’s install the casters next: Below: These are the casters (with double lock mechanism) Below: Use the bottom of the caster to...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #2: Building the legs...

03-27-2011 12:50 AM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

All of the lumber for the legs has been sized…now to glue them up… I cut a small piece of the “frame” lumber, so that it would be easier to glue up the legs with the proper sized notch. The final size of the legs is 24 1/2” long (the glued up short section is 5” shorter than the longer piece; 19 1/2” in this case). Above: The first leg is glued-up. Check the size of your notch with a sample cut from your upper or lower frame lumber. Aft...
