Shop Organisation #2: Leftover Wooden Creates

08-11-2014 05:43 PM by woodoogolem | 3 comments »

At least here in Germany stores are often offering leftover packaging material to their customers to package their goods. Often there are wooden creates which were used to transport fruits or vegetables. The bads ones I store for the winter for burning, the good ones make fine storage boxes: I use them to group material for the projects I am working on or keep all parts belonging to a jig. When the creates have similar sizes they allow easy stacking:

52 Weeks #17: Week 17- It’s a process…

05-02-2011 02:55 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

One that I am hoping to get a good grasp of in the next few weeks. The process to which I am referring to is resawing my own wood for projects. I have made a few projects out of reclaimed wood such as my bandsaw boxes and the parting gifts for some coworkers that have left. Now what I am hoping to do is go one step further and make some different projects from these woods that I am able to collect. I mentioned last week that I had built a saw buck well I finally put it to some use and got som...

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...

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.
