Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 4 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #8: Edge profile and final sanding, onto finish work

11-26-2017 03:19 PM by Reinan | 3 comments »

As this table is a gift for a young couple, I thought a rounded edge on the most exposed corners would be prudent; possible small ones in the future and all. So I used a 1/8 round over bit in my venerable PC 100 which did the job well but ackwardly at times. I wish I had a smaller unit for this kind of work and have been considering the purchase of a lighter one handed type router. After completing the machine work, I sanded everything to 400 grit, wet sanding the table top. I put one thi...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

Folding Sandpaper

10-28-2017 05:32 AM by Rich | 6 comments »

I know this seems like a trivial thing, but after folding sandpaper this way for decades, I was surprised to find only one youtube video that discussed it, and even it failed to mention the folding order needed to easily use all four surfaces of the folded sheet. When sanding, while getting into tight places, and following contours requires a single thickness of paper, hand-sanding flat surfaces without a block is difficult with one layer. For one, there is nothing to stiffen the paper, a...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions

10-22-2017 01:35 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Pulled the panel out of clamps yesterday after spending most of the day running around. Part of that time was spent picking up with stock which will become the legs. I had found a very rough piece of walnut, which I had a friend offer to clean up for me. When I stopped by to pick it up, he hadn’t gotten to it yet but was willing to take care of it then. So we blanked the pieces to ~20” and started jointing 2 sides perpendicular so we could square it up on the planer. Think a jointer migh...

Magnetic Fitting System for Dust Collection

10-11-2017 10:06 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, I’m not here to sell you anything. However I do want you to check out this product I’ve developed called Magport. I’ve been a woodworker for many years and I began developing this magnetic fitting system several years ago in an attempt to make connecting and disconnecting flexible dust collection hose fast enough to keep up with my workflow. Often I rearrange machinery to accommodate super long boards which requires flexibility in the dust collection. ...
