Shop Notes #1: Organizing for the New Year

01-03-2018 04:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I like to start off a new year by getting my shop in shape. After the busy holiday season, offcuts are piled everywhere, edges are dull and the deficiencies in the workspace are sharp in my mind. Shortly after Christmas, I set to work making a new stand for my lathe. The old one was designed to stand in the middle of the room and had storage on both sides. I ended up pushing it against a wall, which made that space either worthless or terribly inconvenient. The new stand—not a thing ...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bluenote38 | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Shop Improvements #2: Why your SawStop riving knife still isnt aligned

10-25-2017 06:38 PM by Sarit | 7 comments »

My SawStop PCS tablesaw has a pretty fussy riving knife adjustment system. You have to crank the blade up to check alignment and then crank it back down to be able to adjust the bolts and of course every time you tighten the bolts you move the knife out of alignment. So back and forth you go crank, loosen, align, crank, tighten, crank, loosen, align,... Then once you’ve got it just right, and you crank the blade back down to a reasonable height to cut some 3/4” plywood the knife seems out of ...

maintenance time

10-03-2017 01:34 AM by emart | 2 comments »

Welp I finally bit the bullet and took on my sagging foundation. The building I am using was a kit from Lowes which 18 year old me built to exactly what the instructions said. the major flaw in the design is it didnt come with sill plates (I made sure the new half has them.) This caused water to seep in where the siding meets the floor and rotted everything out but the studs and siding. Eventually I got tired of machinery falling through the floor. After several good Seattle storms I thi...

Shop Projects #1: Air Filter

10-02-2017 01:15 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major investment in a fan, and the typical box fan was just not powerful enough in my opinion. We use a Lasko Wind machine in the living room and bedroom and these fans are GREAT!! I happened to catch an end of the sea...

the space is defined, now on to the shop layout...

09-16-2017 08:19 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

Hi all. New here, well new to posting. Done lots of snooping. Anyways, our family recently chose to move and downsize. Our house is a modest 850sf, but has a usable basement, but no garage. Soooo as part of our plan, im building it. Basically a 18×24 ft pad, 1 car space inside, carport space outside and room for a small, but dedicated, 18×12ft shop. Given those confines, I’ve got a blank slate to work with and as I’ve been working on designing it thought i shoul...

New shop! #12: done?

09-16-2017 07:03 PM by Steve Felsheim | 0 comments »

Well, I have been falling down on my blog (insert favorite excuse here). You may notice the shop looks a bit more “worked in”, (i.e. messy) Since my last post, I got the new bandsaw (Laguna 18” LOVE IT). Got my jointer/planer area setup and all the dust collection pipes run (that sucked, large, pun intended) Got the dust collection for the router table setup (more suckage) Got some wood storage above the miter saw station. It works, but its a serious pain g...

Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter

02-27-2017 10:14 PM by heldercruz100 | 1 comment »

View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??
