Fastner & Small Parts Storage

06-05-2011 06:46 AM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Belt Sander Suggestions #1: Looking to purchase a belt sander

05-25-2011 01:07 AM by DamnYankee | 9 comments »

I’m looking to purchase a belt sander and looking for recommendations. As I’ve never had one before I don’t know how much I will use it. Based on past experience with new tools I will use it more than I do now and more than I think I will. I know I prefer to spend the money, when needed, on a good quality tool up front (buy quality pay once, buy junk pay several times..usually more than you would have if paid up front). This is not to say money is no object but… T...

Man Cave Work Shop #4: A New Beginning

05-22-2011 07:14 PM by IceCactus | 1 comment »

After my joints broke since my last blog post. I decided to use the plans i had as a guide, and design my own cabinets. After a couple weeks of thinking about it here and there, getting some new wood from a real lumber yard and letting it dry out. This is what i came up with. all cabinets are 30 in. wide inside. So, 34” overall width. 1 of 2 small cabinet units. 1 of 2 large tower cabinet units. I am a little disappointed in how much flex or r...

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

Workshop Improvements #2: Experience, The Right Tools, & a Little CA

05-17-2011 01:41 AM by ChrisCrafts | 1 comment »

I started this little adventure into Woodworking just over a year ago. It has been quite the God send as an escape from the mind numbing boredom that can result from permanent Disability. In that time I have learned enough to fill an encyclopedia, although I have just scratched the surface in terms of overall knowledge. In the beginning I tried to get it done on the cheap with a mixture of Shopsmith & Harbor Freight Tools. After 6 months of “practicing” the craft I realized...

$40 Trestle Table #1: Rachael Ray type planning

05-05-2011 08:30 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

If you ever want to get a group of women to take notice then roll their eyes and leave. As they are talking about cooking interrupt and say “Well, according to Rachael Ray….”. Or don’t try it. They usually don’t like it. So, what does this have to do with a trestle table? Rachael does her “eat on $40 dollars a day” program. Or at least she used to. My niece is moving into a new apartment and mentioned that she would like a new kitchen table. She&#...
