https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=637nmSZ7aNA Follow along as I walk through my wood working shop while I talk about the projects and tools that are currently in the shop. Oh I start with a quick look at my new movable chicken coop!
Over the past four or so days I’ve made some real progress. The open spaces (soon to be partially refilled with new stuff) have returned and the junk is out From left to right. The router table; complete with new router base plate, the bench; with lights, speakers and cyclone bin (underneath) and table saw. On the extreme right is this netbook for music (internet connected), clock and most importantly, tea. All on a little shelf I knocked up, yesterday. As you can s...
It’s been four weeks since I moved my shop tools over to the new place. Other, last minute panic, items got deposited in the garage too. We finally moved in about a week ago. Today I started to re-build my shop and on entering the garage this is what I found Under there (somewhere) is my table saw, workbench and router table! The rest of the place wasn’t much better Still I cleared some of the excess away and found the bench In three parts; frame, top and ...
My mother is set to semi retire at the end of this month and requested assistance removing some items from her home in order to increase her ability to change locations more effectively. Happy to assist and believed most of the items could be sold for an amount greater than the UHaul expense but was unfortunately incorrect on this. Have began pulling them apart for their pieces and generally been fairly pleased… Working on a commissioned toy box and have found adequate Red Oak mat...
The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!
I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...
Trying again, here are the three 24” boxes, with a few shelves – used up all the longer pieces, but may be able to put together a few bins with the remainder. The three small shelves are in the shop. Here is the wide view of the garage now, will build a third hanging for the remaining space, then on to lower cabs and a small garage bench. May take another 6 months, but am motivated to finish now…. cheers
Me and my wife are close to finalizing everything on the purchase of our first home. Unfortunately there is no space for my shop. There is an attached two car garage but not nearly as large as I need for the tools I have acquired over the last 12 months. The place I am renting now has a sizable 26×34 garage that I use for my shop. Therefore I am planning a shop build. I am thinking of a 30×40 or something close. I worked in residential construction in high school and have a very clo...
The problemWhen I decided to build a Chevalet for marquetry work I honestly didn’t think I would be able to find a place for it in my shop. It already felt quite crowded in there. Whenever I sweep the floor every storage cabinet, and machine tool has to be moved to get the job done. That’s why all of my tools and cabinets are on wheels, even my drill press. I decided to go ahead and build a Chevalet anyway hoping that I could dream up a solution in order to create a place for it. ...
It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on LJ’s and a very busy couple years for me. As you can see in the pic below, I’ve missed about thirty thousand posts on ‘Handplanes of your dreams’, and about twenty seven thousand posts on Stumpy’s epic monopost! In the past couple years since my last post I’ve gone through a separation, moved twice, bought a house, gotten married and now have an amazing stepdaughter the same age as my biol...
Wood Thoughts #8: Are You Ready for Woodworking Safety Day? Or As I Like to Call It, “Not the Zombie Apocalypse”
Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Let me start off by saying that safety is never a joking matter, – So why are you writing this post? – and in the short five months that I have been writing this blog, safety has occupied 5% of all posts on this website (now standing at 10%). The last time I talked on this subject it was the basic idea of personal responsibility. If you are uncomfortable with it, do not do it; just say, "No." Well &...
