$20 Wood Buy one year later

05-31-2017 01:17 AM by oldguy2 | 4 comments »

A year ago I was able to buy a dumpster load of cut offs from a local plant. Most of it finished and sizes 8 inch to 14 inch and 3/4 width some a bit thinner. So it took 24 boxes to bring it to my home, a few were smaller marked for the burner and campfires. And 6 boxes have been given away to relatives for fireplaces, not a bad gift when I counted in one box almost 50 pieces of wood, no pine mostly hardwood, 3 inch to 4 inch wide. As project wood it is almost ready to go edge one side and...

small workshop ideas #2: Shopsmith, Miter Saw and Wood buy

04-14-2017 11:40 AM by oldguy2 | 6 comments »

My Worshop Number 5 is the one car garage 13 by 21 and space is like everyone …use every inch. I have found a $15 nice deal on scrap from a furniture company that sells strips and I bought the load finally. It took three trips to get it to my home/ driveway. 3 inch wide, 2 inch wide all hardwood and then the too small except for fires pile. So for 3 days I have been with the miter saw cutting lengths and prepping everything and storing. My plan was to cut most to 4 ft. len...

Hints and Tips #3: Paint 'Pyramids'

12-18-2014 11:42 PM by Dave Rutan | 11 comments »

I can’t claim this as my original idea. I saw it somewhere sometime in the past. [EDIT] I found where I got this idea. It was in this video tip by Chad Stanton. It’s a great idea though and uses up some small scraps of plywood. You can buy paint pyramids, but I like the free option. All I did was take pieces of 1/2 inch plywood and cut them into approximately 2×2 inch squares. Then I drilled a pilot hole and made a countersink for a deck screw so they would sit le...

Saw till

12-15-2012 09:00 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

I decided to burn through some more of my scrap wood, this time stuff left over from when I built the miter saw/router table station. There was some pretty good sized 1/2” plywood left over cut at odd angles (which was itself scrap from our shelving project). I have been mulling over what to do with this odd sized (about 2’ x 4’) wood and finally hit on an idea: a saw till. For a while now, my master plan has been to get the tools that I use regularly (that is, the h...

Cleaning Out Scrap

04-17-2012 08:10 AM by DogwoodTales | 8 comments »

Recently I took some time to clean out old scrap wood and other misc items that I have had sitting around in the workshop for ages. So I decided to make a fun video of it. I hope you enjoy it. Sometimes it’s difficult to make the decision to keep something or to get rid of it. Scrap is great to have around for various reasons, however too much scrap becomes a nuisance and even a safety hazard especially in a small workshop like mine. It’s important to limit the scrap wood and v...
