Shop machine rust clean up. #1: Rockwell Delta jointer

06-27-2016 05:14 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 0 comments »

Sometimes my shop is lucky enough to inherit tools from other shops when they either close up or upgrade their machines. When this happens, if it’s a machine we can use, they are often in rough shape and in need of cleaning and maintenance. This Rockwell Delta jointer for instance needed a good cleaning on the deck, a new power cord, and new blades. In this post I’ll show you how an old time carpenter tought me to clean the metal deck of a shop machine. Start by soaking the ...

In Ceiling Air Cleaner #1: An air cleaner that you won't walk into...

03-11-2013 07:49 PM by chopnhack | 0 comments »

Well, it all started out with a trip to buy an air cleaner off of craig’s list some time ago. I saw a used Jet AFS-1000B for sale for about $150. After checking out the spec’s, I thought, gee, this would work great, 30×24x12, that’s not too big, I can find a place for it…. Drove about 1.5 hours round trip to discover that hey 30×24x12 is actually too BIG! I imagined myself hanging this thing near the step down that I have entering my garage and knocking mysel...

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...

Shop Tour/Axe Handle Sneak Peak

04-12-2013 01:44 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have had a broad head axe sitting around in my shop for almost a year now. It is sad to see that thing just sitting there. The other night I decided to go ahead and starting shaping a piece of wood for the handle. In this video I take you on the “other side” of the wood shop, the smithing area. While giving a short tour I show the axe handle and what tools I’m using to get it to it’s shape. Enjoy!

A Clean Shop #1: A New Shop Cabinet

11-12-2007 11:25 PM by Tim Dorcas | 0 comments »

The last two months or so, the shop has been a mess. Partly this is due to not having a place to put all of my lumber but the bigger part is I have had no place to put the larger equipment. Recently in one of the woodworking magazines they built a shop cabinet that housed the same type equipment I was trying to organize. They built it with spruce and peg board. I had some left over melamine (melamine that just happened to match all of the other cabinets in the shop) so I went to work with a d...

shop re start the new RMR #3: hesitant progress

02-26-2017 10:10 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

well a little progress has been made unfortunately i’m hesitant to do too much because i may lose the place with the recent employment termination and lack of resources in new state. <div></div> But anyway i was going to move my 4×8 work bench in as a alt. out-feed table, but instead i added on a 18”x40” removable leaf for now. I did get the base and stationary fence done on my cross cut sled, next is assembling the adjustable miter fence and attaching it. got...

Wood Shop Tour

02-26-2017 10:39 AM by Kuffy | 0 comments »

I had a spare moment this arvo after clearing away a bunch of tools to make room so I could begin planing, scraping and sanding some hall table components that are awaiting assembly. So I took the opportunity to film a quick tour of my 2 1/2 car garage workshop. It’s really only a one car garage if I exclude the footprint that my sliding panel saw takes up :D View on YouTube

Widdershins Joinery Blog #2: About My Blog

09-09-2014 10:53 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 0 comments »

This blog is all about my work in my shop, detailing the trials and tribulations I experience there. I had been a woodworker, in the most peripheral sense, most of my life. Typical outport kind, I guess, building things with Dad out in the garage. I’ve built a significant portion of sheds, cottages, decks, installed windows, doors, siding, poured concrete, worked on asphalt, etc, etc, ad nausium. It’s all good though, Woodworking (as just one of my many hobbies) quiets a part of my soul that ...
