starting my new passion #1: New to woodworking, looking for advise

10-21-2014 03:41 AM by Gwjames | 3 comments »

Ok, so I am new to wood working, I did a couple very simple projects such as a farm house style table and after built a matching bench for one side, I am a grown man and refuse to sit on a bench so I decided that eventually I would design and build some farmhouse chairs, I didn’t think I was quite ready yet so I built (I am still finishing it) a farmhouse bed. Any body noticing a trend yet? I really like the farmhouse style furniture. Well when I first started I was just u...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #5: Sliding Door Issues!

08-22-2010 05:22 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, I have this sliding door that just wouldn’t slide smoothly through the slot in the wood! Grrr, this was a problem. It can’t work like this. There must be a better way. I was making sawdust pushing it in and out and that can’t be good… the slot – there’s two btw… The plans were none to clear, in fact they call for a wooden dowel. How long would that last before wearing out? So, I opted for the smooth shank on a 1/4” wood bolt. Hacked t...

Tools #3: Grinding and polishing station

03-18-2014 12:19 AM by PASs | 3 comments »

I have a thing for filing cabinets. I have 19 (nineteen) in my shop.I get them for free or dirt cheap off Craig’s List. And they are all high quality (Hon or equivalent.)A couple weeks ago I decided to consolidate my two grinders on separate stations into one master station.My main grinder was set on a rolling tool stand. It has the lathe sharpening setup underneath. The second grinder is a cheapo for general purpose grinding. The goal was to mount them back-to-back in the (futile...

MicroMesh Identification Tip

09-01-2011 07:37 AM by alfa189 | 3 comments »

I know I’m not the first one to come up with something like this, but I figured I’d share it anyway. When you buy micromesh sanding pads, they are color coded, but come in a pack of 9 (yes, nine) different grits. I used to write a number on each grit, but quickly found that they smudge beyond legibility even when using a sharpie. So I came up with this simple, quick refernce system. As you can see, it’s quite easy to keep them all in order this way.

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #2: Starting with the Mirror

11-12-2012 04:44 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

I decided it was too confusing trying to build the bench and the mirror at the same time, so I’m making the mirror first, because it’s simpler. I’ll have less to think about if I get it out of the way. So Step 0: Stop. Go re-sharpen all your tools. This took about a day or so. Longer than normal because I was trying to grind a camber on most of the irons and I’m not very swift at it yet. Step 1: Cut all parts to rough width and rough length. Step 2: Cut al...

My Low-Budget Builds #2: MDF and Granite Sharpening Station: Materials needed and basic design

03-01-2012 06:01 AM by Kenny | 3 comments »

Now, it’s time to go over what you will need for material to make your own sharpening station. But first, a few things to think about before we get too involved. I plan to make mine to be used atop an existing bench in my shop. If you don’t have an existing bench or a good place to put this, you will want to factor in the materials for a simple stand. Remember, this is just a sharpening station, not a piece of fine furniture. If you so choose, you can make it really nice, but a...
