Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #11: Shop labels

05-11-2014 01:23 PM by Garry | 0 comments »

I finally got around to making the shop labels that I designed some time ago. They’re sized for standard business cards which can be hand lettered or printed. The wood strips have a 15 degree bevel and are spaced to hold the card with slight compression. It came out pretty well and has plenty of room for personal preference. Design showing label and spacer for installation: Installation with staples to hold it until the glue dries (push pins might be a better option): With labe...

Advanced dust extraction in the woodshop

02-25-2017 07:53 PM by FranksShed | 0 comments »

A good dust extraction in a woodshop is not only important for cleanliness, it is also about your health. For me this is very important and I have figured out a somewhat extraordinary but very efficient solution. Have fun!

dust stuff #5: shop clean up

04-04-2012 05:17 PM by JoeyG | 0 comments »

I actually got into the shop to do some cleaning this morning. It is going well, but it’s is getting more involved as I go. I have already painted one wall and that was definatly not on the clean up list. LOL. I’ve hated those white walls since we moved into our home and I claimed the garage. I want to invite anyone who is interested in seeing this transformation of my shop to come over and join me at http://www.facebook.com/groups/213408222025323/ I don’t really...

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...
