Although I really don’t work with a ton of power tools, the planer being the loudest of them, I’ve been trying to were ear protection. reinforced the where the cord comes through just in case detail of the pocket

They Honey-Do List #1: A sewing table

03-02-2009 10:44 PM by NedB | 4 comments »

My family recentlly suffered a loss, my Mother in-law passed away after several years of gradual declinging health followed by one week of steep downturn. As a result I’m faced with the opportunity to do something for the LOML That I’ve wanted to make for awhile. We’ll be re-purposing her mother’s bedroom into a sewing and computer room. I’ve got two spare benchtops sitting in my shop, so I’m going to build a set of legs for one of them for a sewing table/c...

I bought a large one about two years ago, was kind of intimidated to try putting it on, but I finally did. I had to put a new arbor on my table saw too, the pulley that holds the belt kept working it’s way off, so when I ordered that part, since I couldn’t use the saw, it was a good time to put the n...

I have decided to build myself a sewing table, I have made myself a few things, but mostly I make things for my kids or grandkids. I love to sew, I have been doing it a lot longer than woodworking, so I am better at it. It is interesting how the two things are similar in a lot of ways…anyway. I am a novice at woodworking, most everything I know is from trial and error. I’m sure the technique I use for most things in wrong, but I somehow get it done anyway. So, I thought I wou...
