Path To A New Workshop #1: The Intro/Situation

12-15-2014 12:09 AM by Vactet | 2 comments »

Hi folks.Well first post here. Found out about this site from Pintrest pins leading to it and found it extremely helpful. Figured I’d chronicle my not-so-little project here via these blogs. So here we go. [WARNING: This entry is going to be highly text heavy] Short history lesson first. Started my own business in June of this year (2014). Was currently living in a house that I was renting for various reasons but had every intent of buying a house shortly. Prior to that lived in a Co...

Tales of a Hack #3: Shop status -- Full.

12-11-2014 10:59 PM by ajw1978 | 7 comments »

I’ll post some introductory reviews in the next couple days, but for now, just wanted to “show off” the latest additions to my “workshop” (a term I still use in the loosest possible sense as I’m still a Downtown-dweller with but a large patio from which to work). Last weekend, I jumped on a HD deal of the day that offered an 18V Ridgid drill/driver and impact driver kit, along with two batteries for $149. After placing the order, though, I saw the 12V Ri...

In the wood shop today #34: Fine woodworking - build your own chair day 3 progress

12-11-2014 12:14 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

Follow along as I walk through the wood shop during my 1 on 1 build your own rocking chair course. This is Day 3 of the 10 day course I offer. We’ve started work on each part of the chair from bent lamination for the back supports, coving the arms, carving the seat and of course the famous Maloof joinery. Also I take a look at a few pieces I’ve built in the past, some beautiful chairs and sculpted music stands.

The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements. These types of sheds have LARGE frame centers but they’re still set on a 16” center around the perimeter. So, it is just a matter of filling in the missing sections and tying everything together. As you can tell nothing too complicated about it ...

The "Shed" #2: Dirtwork....augh.

10-26-2014 04:39 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

After a few weeks of essentially doing nothing but research (including bugging my master electrician father inlaw) about how to NOT metaphorically shoot myself in the foot I finally broke ground on the electrical supply to the new shed. Graciously my father offered his tiller and his own back to help me get the trench dug and the 40 feet of main line put into it’s permanent location in just under four hours…no idea how long it would have taken without the now 24 year old tiller t...

New Shop building! #9: ... Rack 'em up!

09-25-2014 03:01 PM by JoeinGa | 4 comments »

This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...

New Shop building! #8: ...AIR! Gasp! I need AIR!

09-23-2014 10:06 PM by JoeinGa | 5 comments »

Back in 10aSEE I put my air compressor on the inside of the shop. It was in a corner and pretty much out of the way. I wasn’t always pleased with the noise, but at least it was out of the weather. And when I got ahold of an old compressor tank (freebie) to double my air capacity, I hung the extra tank using chains up in the rafters right above the compressor. . .But this new building is smaller than the old one (by almost 400sf) and the ceilings are just barely 8’ high, so I c...
