Timber Frame Barn Remodel #8: Seeing the difference

07-17-2018 03:47 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

This last weekend I was able to put a solid 4 hours into the project and it is kind of nice to be able to actually see a noticeable difference. I removed the entire lover level of siding on the back side of the barn. I started slow trying to salvage what I could and damn is that frustrating. I have no idea how those guys on TV make it look so easy. I am trying to salvage enough of the good siding from the exterior to line my wood shop with then all is said and done. Yet it is a monumental tas...

New Shop Build #3: A solid foundation

04-26-2018 09:26 PM by Bikerdan | 3 comments »

Finally! After days of planning, waiting, questions, weather issues, more planning, and more waiting, it’s finally done! I have a foundation to build on! As you can probably tell, I’m really excited. There were a couple of changes I was able to squeeze in to the plan before the pour. I added a Ufer ground and ran conduit to an electrical cement floor box so I’ll have power ran to the middle of the room. I mostly plan on using that for my table saw and for running pow...

New workshop build! #1: Construction has started!

04-20-2018 08:34 PM by Mrowell | 12 comments »

I have finally started construction on my new shop! I ended up waiting a little longer then planned because I have 4 large trees cut down first. I am planning on having these trees (2 red oak, 1 white oak and 1 beach) sawed up into boards then stacking it in the barn to dry. Dug and poured footings this week, shop will be 20×40 with a 8×12 room that has exterior access for storage and yard equiptment! I will have the masonry foundation built this weekend to allow for a crawlspace...

New Shop Build #2: So it begins

04-12-2018 08:48 PM by Bikerdan | 6 comments »

Hey everybody! It’s been a bit since my last post. Things have been going a little slow due to weather and vacations. The last post was just to introduce the project. At that time, nothing had been done except for getting the building permit. Since then, I’ve broken ground!!! The first step is to get the foundation and floor poured. This is one of the only couple of stages that I’m going to stand back and let an expert take care of for me. I need to make sure this ...

Kelly's Shop Karts

04-04-2018 03:50 AM by Kelly | 1 comment »

This is about building simple, but VERY strong mobile shop carts using a single sheet of plywood. These will, easily, support 300 pounds. The one in the picture with a cabinet on top held nearly 500 pounds without so much as a creak or a groan. From start to finish, building one of these will consume about a day. I have eight of these carts in my shop. Each sized according to the use to which it will be put. For example, the carts in the picture measure about 24” wide by 48...

Shop Thoughts

04-02-2018 08:55 PM by IantheTinker | 4 comments »

Recently I have not been spending as much time in my shop as I used to. I have no great reason for this other than I had already finished my box for the 2018 Boxswap and I hadn’t gotten around to starting a project that I find a tad bit intimidating (mostly because I attempted the project once before and botched it a good bit). However, I began the project the other day and have found success thus far, so I am feeling good. I am also wanting to try a project I found in the Small Shop magaz...

I am building a shop!!! I’m so excited to have this experience. I know it might be hard, there will be issues, it will be time consuming, but the rewards are many! I hope to put this experience in a blog format here to document my experience and hopefully help those of you with questions and that might be thinking about taking on their own project like this. In this entry, I just want to introduce myself and give a brief description of my project. I am an amateur wood worker an...

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

The First Honest Wine Cork [or how to grow your shop]

02-02-2018 04:54 AM by Kelly | 1 comment »

INTRODUCTION – THE FIRST, HONEST WINE STOPPER(or How To Establish or Grow Your Shop) Decades or even centuries overdue, it’s finally here – THE FIRST, HONEST WINE STOPPER. It isn’t difficult to find information about making custom wine stoppers, since designs and methods about making them seem boundless on the Net (there may even be some available outside the Instructables web pages, though I think that may just be a Net myth). Those [sometimes] frivolous fac...
