Workshop 2016 #3: Onward and upward!

01-20-2016 06:45 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Now that the new year has started I’m getting entangled in fine tuning my new space and all the daydreams that go along with it. The table saw has had a few small, short runs checking the fence and installing risers to my assembly table so that it can learn a new trick as an out feed table! I had a small bit of oak ply laying around and it works out perfect to add just the right height I needed to the table. As you’ll see it’s just barely below the table saw top so the...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE

Like Qbert says, "@!#?"

01-11-2016 02:33 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Thankfully todays glue up did not inspire a case of shop induced turrets.Like Qbert says, ”@!#?” It is not often I use more than half of my clamps. Years back I would use them all up in a day and be left needing more. Today I used up a bit more than half and I was hoping to get to more, but time ran out. I have the bench legs and top slabs glued up. The split is milled and has a bit more before it will get glued up too. To start the day out I made a set of cauls from a 2...

Building the Ultimate Garage Woodshop #9: DONE!

11-05-2015 05:46 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

Pretty much done. Obviously there is a long list of finishing touches that I will be working on throughout the winter. But after about 3 years its finally a woodshop. And an art studio. And a ton of storage. And a built-in laundry. And remember that I was able to fit this all into a one car garage. One of my goals, other than to have a kick ass work space, was to show what was possible in a one car garage. I wanted to be a bit of an inspiration to other woodworkers who don’t have ...

Shop Remodel #1: The Fiery Pits of Hell

11-03-2015 11:47 PM by bearkatwood | 13 comments »

So I got a wild hair when I was cleaning up my table saw. But first a little background, I have been trying to clean up my shop and make it presentable for pictures and videos. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and I feel confident that I could teach. So I thought the logical place for me to start would be some on-line videos and see where it went from there. It is a slow and arduous process to take a woodworking shop that has been used for years as a factory of furniture making and turn ...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...

Ridgid TS3650 Router Table Extension #1: Compromises of Limited Space

09-17-2015 06:36 PM by jonah | 1 comment »

I have a pretty small basement shop. It’s not set up perfectly, but given the constraints I am working with, I think I’ve done pretty well with it. I have: - a very fragile-looking old water main coming in one wall about 12” above the floor- steam heating pipes bisecting the shop area right in the middle, about 6ft above the floor. I am 6’1” - a walk-out door and a set of 5 stairs leading down to the basement on one wall- about 10×22 feet of total space w...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...
