Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...

Workshop 2016 #3: Onward and upward!

01-20-2016 06:45 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Now that the new year has started I’m getting entangled in fine tuning my new space and all the daydreams that go along with it. The table saw has had a few small, short runs checking the fence and installing risers to my assembly table so that it can learn a new trick as an out feed table! I had a small bit of oak ply laying around and it works out perfect to add just the right height I needed to the table. As you’ll see it’s just barely below the table saw top so the...

Be Safe, Learn Something, and Have Fun!

05-13-2010 07:40 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

Back when I was in the Army I flew a lot with an old instructor pilot that before each flight he would say “be safe, learn something, and have fun”. He was very specific about the order it was said and it has always stayed with me and believe it translates to anything we do, especially woodworking. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional woodworker safety should always be your first goal after that hopefully we will learn something and have fun doing it.Most of the accidents I have had...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #2: Progress!

05-23-2016 03:02 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

So got these fancy new 4’ LED lights to replace the ancient 8’ tube/ballast lights… theyre SUPER bright, so for now theyre upside down! Thinking I might make a plexi diffuser or something in the future… Anyway, starting to get things cleaned up a bit. Throwing away TONS of stuff.. there is really only a few categories of items: keepers (to keep in garage, or some other area of the house), sell/donate (ebay, craigslist, verage, something like that), and trash! A...

Shop update

06-13-2013 02:24 PM by log2lumber | 0 comments »

For the past 7 years, our workshop has been divided in 2 and shared. My office and its file cabinets share space with our basement workshop. The garage has the rest of our workshop. The basement workshop consists of our home office area and the woodturning area. This area was originally intended to be office only, but we did not like turning in the garage in the winter. We are moving the office out of the workshop and into another part of the basement so we have a dedicated basement ...

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....
