Rolling Storage Cart #4: All finished

05-09-2014 05:26 AM by lycilph | 0 comments »

Well, there wasn’t much left to do. I’ve added false fronts to the drawers and a simple pull. I have rather large hands so I don’t like the standard drawer handles that you can get. I made some from some scrap wood I had lying around, and they seem to work pretty well, plus they contrast pretty nicely. The drawers are pretty square, but once you put the false fronts to them they are snug on one side and there is a gap on the other side. You can’t really tell fro...

Tools #1: TS3650 and RS1000

05-03-2010 03:07 AM by PASs | 0 comments »

Snagged A Ridgid TS3650 table saw and a Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw last night.A BIG thanks to BOTIETRUCK for telling me about the listing on Craigs List.It was an hour and a half drive down to Kill Devil Hill to look at it, but we hopped in the Excursion to look at the table saw and made it an evening (and half a night by the end of everything.) Got there about 7p.m., did the talking and ended up getting the RAS as well. It’s AMAZING what you can get in the back of a Ford Excursion. W...

Rolling Storage Cart #1: Base Cabinet

03-31-2014 01:26 AM by lycilph | 0 comments »

I’ve been using open shelving units hung on my shed walls for years because I have issues with creepy crawlies, but I’m wanting something to store smaller items in that is more compact. I also wanted to try out the $5 track saw I made from an old circular saw. (PS: it works GREAT) I started off by building a cabinet from 18mm plywood: 668w x 865h x 750d. The 668 may seem an odd dimension but it allows me to make the drawer bases from a 12mm plywood sheet ripped down the middle....

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Progress on a Friday Evening

01-26-2013 01:54 AM by HRLou | 0 comments »

I don’t take the time during the week for shop therapy, priorities being what they are and all. But my work schedule includes Four-Hour Fridays, so I can get an earlier start on my therapy for the weekend. Last weekend I got my lumber rack close to finished. I’m a little worried about undertaking the cabinet project, and I’ve been procrastinating a little, but also looking for ways to hone the skills I think I’ll need before cutting into the wood we’ve selec...

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...
