Nashville WoodWorking show

12-12-2008 at 10:42 PM by lazyfiremaninTN | 3 comments »

I heard that the Woodworking show was coming to Nashville for the first time in several years I got kinda misty-eyed. I was able to travel with my wife and son to West Virginia to see Greg3G and we went to the Chantilly, VA Woodworking show last March and we had a great time. I have quietly been saving my change, putting 1 dollar here, 5 dollars there back since I found out the show was coming. I planed to go tomorrow, but a friend at work called in a favor, so I have to work a double this...

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

04-15-2010 at 02:46 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...

Beall Polishing System #3: It does polish wood

01-04-2014 at 05:46 AM 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. )...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #7: The box joint drawers

09-11-2010 at 05:37 PM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Continuing my progress I decided that the box joint, per the plan, was the way to go. Instead of 5 drawers I did four. I had all 5 cut, but figured one extra big drawer would be more useful than 3 smaller, so I used the biscuit joiner to combine one of the two big ones with one of the small. It saved me from buying more wood and gave me more practice with the joiner. I checked around for plans for a box joint jig and decided that the one from Shopnotes.com (PlansNow) was the better of the ...

Go Into the Light!

09-05-2013 at 06:18 AM 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...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 at 01:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

CYLINDER MAKING #4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible?

07-30-2012 at 05:37 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

The hardest challenge in this series is to make the WOODEN HINGE for a cylinder side. The difficulty of the curve fitting and the alignment of the pin to cater the correct pivot. LID PART . The lid being the one that is on top will take the whole arc that will be close to the outermost part and length will just be enough to hold the post on each end. This must be tangent to the circumference and must be at right angle (at first only so as to route the slot that will hold the pin). You ...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

01-05-2014 at 12:55 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...
