Building My Roubo Bench #2: (Mis)Adventures in Getting the Material

01-18-2012 04:37 AM by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

At some point in December, I decided I’d be building my bench out of Douglas Fir. As stated in Chris’s book, Doug Fir is stiff and moderately hard. It isn’t that heavy, but given the amount of material I’ll be using on the bench, the final product should be heavy enough. Also as recommended in the book, I realized that a big box store would be a fine place to get the lumber. 2×12s are readily available at every Home Depot and Lowes near me. I have a good tabl...

Building the shop #8: The wall is up!!!

01-16-2012 07:40 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 5 comments »

Saturday… 0630… In the car heading to Lowe’s for the last few items needed to make the piece of my garage a real shop. Kind of like Pinocchio wanting to be a real boy – my 1/3 of the 3-car garage WANTS to be a woodshop, and I am the maker, Geppetto, who has been carefully, slowly (too slow) making that piece of the garage into a shop. Rich, my neighbor across the street, and, a “sheetrock guy” by trade, has offered to help my little piece of heaven becom...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 19 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Palm boxes #2: Re glueing, sanding, and finishing

01-11-2012 10:35 AM by Sanman | 2 comments »

So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...

Table Saw Upgrade

01-10-2012 05:00 AM by Trev_Batstone | 12 comments »

I went out window shopping today for table saws. Any table saw would be better than the old clunker that I bought last summer, shortly after I decided to take up woodworking. It has served me until now, but I just wanted something better. After looking at a few makes and models at one retailer, not liking what I saw, I went to my local Canadian Tire store and discovered that they had a table saw which is on sale for this week only. It was a lot better built than some of the other ...

Crosscut Sleds Made Simple #1: Thinking about making a sled?

01-09-2012 05:18 AM by MoshupTrail | 4 comments »

I can make a crosscut sled in about an hour. I put this off for a long time and when I finally did it, I wondered why I waited so long. No, it won’t be fancy, but it will be functional and accurate. Here’s the first one I did: The basic crosscut sled was so easy that this weekend I made a 45 degree miter sled. SO, WHAT’‘S THE SECRET? It’s simple. The only thing that has to be carefully measured is the angle between the saw kerf and the refe...

Boat Cradle #1: Strip Boat Cradle

01-09-2012 03:52 AM by JayVT | 1 comment »

The plans for this project are available in a book titled “The Expectant Father’s Cradle Boat Book”.This first picture is of the forms after they were all cut out and mounted to a base.The going is slow only a few inches at a time. The epoxy needs to harden then a few more inches.We covered the edge of the forms with duct tape to keep the strips from sticking to the forms.I also used wax paper to keep the clamps from sticking to the epoxy covered strips.I had to work fast so...

Christmas 2011 Just Got Better!!!

01-08-2012 07:06 PM by matt garcia | 3 comments »

As you know, I work for an incredible boss!! This year, with my Christmas bonus, I purchased a Bench Dog Cast Iron router table extension for my table saw. I was so stoked when I read on Rockler’s website that it fit their Router Lift FX. Little did I know that they changed the plate dimension, and my current model was too small. So I had to wait until payday to get a new one. A few days passed, and there I was at the Rockler counter, when their associate offered me a 20% discount!...

Palm boxes #1: Second box cut up

01-08-2012 04:08 PM by Sanman | 0 comments »

I loved the palm boxes I saw being made before Christmas. With no original wood working ideas or experience of my own, I have to copy. Plus I was running out of money for hardware on the other boxes and the palm boxes didn’t need any hardware. I posted my first box in the finished projects already. This box needed a begining, so I started out with the size. I used a dollar bill as the base size to build from. So with the boards marked, I cut the pieces. Ok, some of you ...

PhotoBlog: How I designed and created the First Year Ornament

01-07-2012 05:20 PM by jimleigh1313 | 0 comments »

See HERE for completed project Recently, I bought a Grizzly bandsaw. One of the reasons I decided to buy a bandsaw was to re-saw lumber for use on a scroll saw. The scroll saw was my first ‘tool’ that I bought, and before, I was limited to purchased plywoods for my scroll saw cuts. I was quite surprised at how much wood can be obtained from a single length of wood when re-sawn. It will definitely expand my creativity for such projects. Outlined is the first such project ...
