Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #4: Adding the shelf & the top...

I cut my 3/4” MDF top and bottom shelf to fit in the frames. I then cut the scrap offcuts from the frame and leg lumber into cleats (for holding the top and the bottom shelf in place. Above: The MDF panels are cut to fit, then pressed down into the frames – leaving them flush with the top. Below: Cutting the scraps into shelf & top cleats. Nothing real critical here for the size – just make them 4” shorter than the space they are being hooked into. ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #1: Starting the project...

03-26-2011 11:07 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...

SPIRAL DESIGN #6: Hexaspiral - The triangulation way

03-26-2011 03:25 PM by BertFlores58 | 11 comments »

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it. Take a good look of following designs: THE DIFFERENT COLOR AND BIGGER TRIANGULATIONS.

Here are the steps I made: STEP 1 – Make a hexa...
