Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...

Reaperwoodworks #7: Footboard bookshelf/storage cabinet...thing

01-24-2016 03:28 AM by Reaperwoodworks | 0 comments »

I’m on a local “shabby” site on Facebook and a gal posted a picture of something she was looking to have built. So I tossed my hat in the ring. Bip bop boop, I was commissioned to build her piece. I sold my furniture repair business almost 2 years ago. I took a year off essentially to put an addition on our house. Feels good to get back into the swing of things running my own business. I’m no where close to being able to support my family on it, but building a new name...

Work Shop Organization #6: Hand Plane Storage

11-18-2015 12:06 PM by ChickenChaser | 1 comment »

So I’ve got a couple of hand planes I need to store I’ve gathered these over the last decade, from garage and estate sales. Rarely paid more than $5-10 for them. Except the 45’s that were $35, one of them even had all the blades. I started with the router plane. and the Stanley 78’s. For the router plane just drilled some holes in a board, added some dowels. The holes in the top hold the extra blades. Here they are hung up on the wall. Just cut out s...

the never ending organinzing and improvements #1: Making things that work for you.

10-12-2015 11:39 AM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

So I just got done building my first router table, by cannibalizing an old work bench I had built a few years ago, and stealing the plate from my other router table, my problem due to my limited and crowded work space, is keeping things with in reach, I have four router bits that I use religiously so having them with right there with in reach is more convenient for me, so i came up with the fence storage on the back side of the fence, this way here, I can keep my router bits with in r...

Hand tools #1: They're everywhere. They're EVERYWHERE!!

09-28-2015 11:43 AM by CFrye | 70 comments »

It’s hard to believe just two short years ago the only hand tools I owned were a retractable measuring tape and a few miniature tools (6” nail bar, vise grips, etc). Then I joined Lumberjocks and shortly thereafter The Hand Plane Swap. That’s when I got The Affliction (or it got me)! I bought two block planes, then a bench plane, then…you get the idea. It didn’t stop with planes. I went to check out a Craig’s List ad for planes and not finding any in my pri...

Workshop setup #7: Clamp tidying

08-13-2015 12:13 PM by FlashG | 0 comments »

Yes, a topic close to all our hearts – how to keep our clamps stored efficiently but kept easily accessible. After realising that a previously-useless-seeming space could be used to hang clamps, and looking at many ways to do so, I grabbed some scrap, glued it, cut it, screwed it to more scrap, then screwed the whole lot on the wall. I’ll add some more jutting-out-bits so that the rest of the clamps can be hung on there too.

The Perfect Fit (a chisel storage short)

08-05-2015 06:38 AM by Jorgearaujo | 2 comments »

Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.
