Shop in Turmoil

04-27-2010 07:45 AM by dustynewt | 6 comments »

I have numerous projects going on. In short, all my horizontal surfaces have gone missing and it is standing room only. Here are some over-alls from the front door. This is the main cause of the melee’. We have decided to toy with silver soldering and jewelry. So, this area of our shrinking shop is being converted to a jeweler’s bench with acetylene torch, flex shaft tool, and all those other cool tools that jewelers use.I will have to find a new home for all that hardwa...

Shop Tools #1: Increasing my collection of shop tools.

04-26-2010 06:16 AM by LarryDNJR | 3 comments »

I went to a guy in Powell, OH about a router and table for $75 total I seen on craigslist. While I was there he also had unopened and unused belt/disc sander and scroll saw. He was asking $200 for all 4 items but settled on $150. I got a Craftsman Router 17504 1-1/2hp, Craftsman Router Table 25483, Delta 1” Belt/8” Disc Sander and Delta 16” Variable Speed Scroll Saw. Works out to roughly $38 per item. Not bad I think even though they are somewhat older items, but ne...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

04-09-2010 06:24 AM by sras | 11 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

03-23-2010 05:07 AM by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

Candle Holder

03-07-2010 11:01 PM by berkleydanny | 4 comments »

Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides. I have gotten the legs cut and sanded, but need to get the material for the tops and sides. I will post pictures as soon as I finish cutiing the rest of it out and get it assembled. Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
