I am close to a finished workshop. I need some help for storage

04-15-2010 09:46 PM by sboyle | 3 comments »

Hello All, Over the last few years, I have been collecting all kinds of tools. I am moving my machine and boxes and boxes of hand tools and accesories. I am looking for a storage solution that would be wall mounted to hold all the hand tools and power tools. I was thinking of a wall hung cabinets to house my hand held power tools, and at least another to house my hand tools. I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...

I am curious what is the name of the tool used to lessen the vibration while turning spindles ( or long pieces ). Is there any good designs for a home made one?

Beall Polishing System #3: It does polish wood

01-04-2014 01:46 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I was talking about sanding mops and other things and only referenced that I’d polished things with it. On all these pieces my finishing regime is the same: 1. Sanded to 320 grit. I don’t have anything finer that I care to use on a piece that’s going to be polished, and I’ve found that 320 grit seems to be perfect for getting a smooth finish. (Side note: I’ve polished some unsanded surfaces. It doesn’t smooth them, but it will polish the high spots. )...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #6: Item 4 and 5 - Using Postcards

02-25-2011 01:43 AM by billb | 3 comments »

There are many more ways to create postcards now because of the computer and easy to use graphic software. Most inkjet printers will do a great job with postcards, and you can purchase blank cards inexpensively, the problem is the high cost of ink. I suggest making a few with your printer to get an idea of the per card cost. If it does work out too high, you can create an original and take it to a quick print shop to have a quantity of them made. You may be able to go to one of those self pri...

Go Into the Light!

09-05-2013 01:18 PM by Eric Wuennecke | 3 comments »

No, don’t die but for goodness sake get some good lighting in your shop. Until recently, I was working on four 75 watt bulbs. It was a little annoying and gave me a bit of eye strain but it was workable. I basically didn’t know what I was missing. My shop is undergoing quite a bit of renovating, being transformed from an unheated two car detached garage with open stud walls to something more comfortable. By comfortable I mean isn’t -20 degrees in the winter. I figured...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Circle cutting #1: Lazy Susan..the making of?

03-22-2009 12:51 PM by degoose | 3 comments »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...
