Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Knock Down Finishing Booth #1: Half Laps Everywhere

02-02-2015 07:14 PM by RoadHogg | 3 comments »

Since I don’t have a dedicated finishing room, in which I can control air flow and quality, I always run into an issue when finishing a project. When I apply finish, I can’t do anything else in the shop until I’m done the finishing process, since I’d create way too much dust. Even if I abstain from other work, there’s always dust that creeps into the finish. The solution is a dust free commercial finishing booth…but I’m not about to buy one. I d...

Nightstand #2: Implementation

02-01-2015 10:19 AM by Nate66 | 0 comments »

I started by using 1/2” birch veneer ply to build the sides. I cut three 1/2” dados along each side 1/4” deep for the shelves and base and the cut the shelves to measure and glued the all in place. The top I lapped over 1/2” on each side and 1” to the front to accommodate the door and drawer fronts.

Nightstand #1: Plan

02-01-2015 10:08 AM by Nate66 | 0 comments »

I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top

01-25-2015 05:49 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Woodworking Tips and Resources #2: How I picked my table saw

01-22-2015 10:26 PM by paxorion | 7 comments »

After writing a blog article describing my table saw selection criteria, I wanted to share how that train of thought helped me make an informed decision on the right table saw (for me). Context: My reasons for replacing my Skil 3305 are documented in my previous blog post. Given a poor and negative experience with that first saw, I wanted to ensure I picked my second table saw that was appropriate for my current living situation. Due to my living situation being a townhouse with no garag...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #7: Replace or Modify - the tale and end of my low end jobsite saw

01-22-2015 08:55 PM by paxorion | 0 comments »

About a year ago, I was faced with a decision to replace or modify my $40 Black Friday table saw. The saw was a Skil 3305 table saw. Each time I used the saw, I was gripped fear of injury because the saw Proved to be impossible to properly align the blade to miter slots, as many hours (and bashed knuckles) led me to conclude that the saw was not designed to allow the owner to perform that basic safety calibration. Had a horrible fence that would not reliably lock parallel and was think...

Woodworking Tips and Resources #1: Jobsite vs Entry fullsize table saw - A detailed analysis

01-21-2015 03:45 AM by paxorion | 9 comments »

The table saw is my most used tool for woodworking. Given it’s utility in woodworking, it is arguably the tool that shouldn’t be skimped out on. Yet over the years, the question of “which table saw is right for me” question is posted time and time again by new woodworkers, with a price point that is fixed to a specific niche, between a high-end jobsite saw and the entry level full-sized (contractor/hybrid) table saws (as of the date of this post, somewhere between $5...
