Shop Tips & Tricks #23: Drywall Screw Helper Kit

08-12-2018 09:30 PM by GnarlyErik | 0 comments »

Here’s a little hack that I find very useful around my shop. Over the years I’ve realized how handy self-tapping drywall screws can be and I keep an assortment of them from 1” up to 3-3/4” on hand. They come in handy for many projects. Done right, a screw can take the place of a clamp, especially in tight spots, or where you’re gluing angled pieces that are difficult to clamp. There are a couple of drawbacks though. One is there’s a small hole left when the screw is removed. This is...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Shop stuff #132: Roubo build Part 4

08-02-2018 11:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Finally! The slabs come together as one unit. My first try at a draw bore loose tenon joint. It was an interesting experience with a lot of groaning from the tight fitting tenons. I could not tell this part of the story in 8 to 12 minutes. It had to go just over a half hour, but I think the story is worth telling. View on YouTube

Shaker Style Cupboard Using Only Hand Tools

07-25-2018 10:22 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this shaker style country cupboard using only hand tools. It has been a while since i did some traditional woodworking and wanted to improve my hand tool skills.This is also the first big project with my new workbench and was a good way to put it through it’s paces. This was a fun project and it gave me the opportunity to make a lot of different joinery (and gave me a good work out). Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnlrl-T2diY&t=1s

Project Build #1: Barn Door Console with Plans

07-20-2018 05:30 PM by TimberAndAshDesigns | 0 comments »

With the Farmhouse fad and the number of DIYers at its peak I found myself in a unique situation of serving multiple clients while only building one piece of furniture. I rarely build the same item twice so having a detailed sketch or plan is not the norm in my shop. Usually I will have several sketches, sometimes rough CAD style drawings but never a full blueprint of what I will be building. For this project I decided to take the design aspect one step further and create reproducible plan...

From wood butchery to wood workery #4: My first attempt at a tutorial - half lap miter joinery

07-14-2018 10:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

While working on another project, I needed to re-familiarize myself with working with my half-lap miter sled. While doing that, I realized I need to make something more stable than what I had originally come up with. The new sled was made out of a piece of mahogany plywood. The board was 26” x 10”. I ripped two strips along the length, each 1 1/2” wide, glued the strips together for the fence, and glued and screwed the fence to the board. I used my square to get th...
