Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

05-03-2013 06:39 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

Free Teak From Craigslist

01-21-2012 08:05 PM by Trev_Batstone | 8 comments »

I just scored a free solid teak coffee table this morning on Craigslist, which I have just disassembled after bringing it home. The guy that had it lives just 3 blocks from my place. The table top measures 44”x33”x 5/8” thick. He acquired it years ago from his parents. He said he no longer had room for it, but he just wanted it to go to a good home. I assured him that it was indeed going to a good place. Future jewelry boxes and keepsake boxes coming up.

150-year-old table

01-04-2012 11:42 PM by Ryan Haasen | 10 comments »

My parents recently bought this table from a friend. It is 150 years old. The top of the table is a 5” thick, solid slab of teak, and I am not sure of the species of the legs. It weighs about 800lbs. we were going to use it as a dining tale, but the knots on the side made it uncomfortable to sit at, so it is now more of a display table.

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

11-23-2011 04:03 PM by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

04-11-2013 12:15 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...
