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...

Wood Table Saw Wing #2: Part 2: The Metal

01-11-2016 08:38 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

In part 2 I construct the metal frame that will attach to the table saw fence rails and support the wing. I half/bolted and half/welded some 3/4×3/4×1/8 steel angle to the rails. Then I used some 3/8” hex cap screws as table levelers. Once everything was flat to my liking, I locked it all down from the underside with a couple of drywall screws. <iframe src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/8za03qx6nO8” frameborder=”0” height=”315” widt...

Craftsman Side Table #1: Planning

12-28-2015 01:19 AM by DanMelander | 2 comments »

Working on a Craftsman side table for the living room. I started with a design I purchased from Woodsmith magazine, and redrew it in Sketchup to change a few things. The original design was narrower, had side spindles instead of slats, and a smaller drawer. I am making it out of cherry, and I’m thinking of using walnut for the top, and maybe the drawer front. The drawers will be maple with a plywood bottom. I have purchased the cherry wood, and now to get started!

Barnsley Reproduction Build #25: A Bucket O’Buttons

11-12-2015 04:32 AM by stevo_wis | 4 comments »

There are 22 buttons that hold the table top to the frame underneath the table. They are approximately two by two inches and have these nice little bevels and wedges on the edges. Rather than work with very small pieces, I decided to make strips of them, do what I could on a machine, cut them apart, then finish each small piece by hand. The x’d out areas need to be hogged out and then cut between buttons. My radial saw seemed to be the safest and easiest tool so that I coul...

Router Table #1: Cabinet and surface

10-20-2015 06:10 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

It doesn’t take very many attempts at routing smaller pieces of wood to see the benefit of a router table. Midway through my Walnut Lamp project, I got some ideas floating through my head that couldn’t happen without the router table. So my once router table cabinet, now wood scrap holder, is once again a router table cabinet. I started with a rectangle 1×2 base joined by glue and pocket screws, some casters, and a plywood shell: I was mostly using leftover ply from other ...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #24: Assembling and Gluing the Undercarriage

10-12-2015 02:59 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

I have glued up the undercarriage, which includes everything below the table top except the buttons holding the top on. The top of the leg where it is mortised into the top frame, and the mortise and tenons where the stretcher goes through the legs are draw bored. I applied glue and used a draw boring alignment pin to pull the joints as tight as possible and then also put a clamp across the joint to hold it when the pin is removed until the dowel is driven through. I glued and assemble...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #23: Assembling the Stretcher

10-05-2015 02:54 AM by stevo_wis | 4 comments »

It has been a couple of months since I have posted but I have been slowly coming along with the Barnsley Table. The stretcher had a lot of carving and bevels, but they are finished. It had some interesting joinery issues as well. The stretcher has almost the identical joinery that the upper frame has. I made one change here to simplify construction and that was to not have an acute point on the tenon. The pencil is pointing to the squared off tenon. Doing that made the mortise much ...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...
