Oak Storage Bench #5: The Path to Glue-Up

02-20-2016 06:47 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

A lot has to happen between cutting the joinery and gluing the panels. I had to fine tune many of the joints, repair some mistakes, and make some finishing cuts to the legs and arms of the bench. Once that was all done, I could glue up the panels. It is nerve-wracking because you only get one shot. Needless to say I did about 100 dry-fits just to be absolutely certain everything would go together properly. The glue-up went as planned without any hiccups. I had to sand most of the joints...

Oak Storage Bench #4: The Panels

02-16-2016 05:03 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Hey! I figured out how to embed videos. Yay! Next step is to create the panels that will fit in the tongue and groove joinery of the frame. I chose 1/2” red oak plywood. That way I would have a 1/4” reveal on the outside and the panels would be flush with the frame on the inside.Some of the techniques I practiced in this session are the following:Cross-cutting veneer plywood with minimal tear-outSetting up a dado blade for cutting rabbetsPreparation of panel stock for stainin...

Oak Storage Bench #3: The Joinery

I decided not to narrate this one. I think the video speaks for itself. This is all the rail and stile joinery I did for the frame of the bench. Nothing revolutionary here, but I did summarize the mistakes I made at the end of the video.Enjoy! Oak Storage Bench Part Three: The Joinery

Odds 'N' Ends #6: Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

02-04-2016 10:36 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage

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...
