Woodworking Shop

653 days ago by MWGreg | 10 comments »

Hi everyone, This is a cool website. Well I just would like to join you all in sharing what I have going on. This is the beginning of my dream shop. Been waiting for this for over twenty years. The main shop will measure 24’ x 30’. An 8’ wide porch will go down the length of the left side, half of which will be enclosed and accessible from the main section. I’m having an Amish contractor build it. I was very fortunate that they dug the holes and got the posts set an...

Woodshop Overhaul #1: The plan

716 days ago by Mike Merzke | 3 comments »

So I’ve discovered that my original garage woodshop was not very functional for me. With only about half of a two car garage to use for space, I was lacking an outfeed table and assembly table, and only had a workbench that was attached to the wall. I was also in serious need of storage space. So off to the computer I went. Lucky for me I had a copy of Microsoft Visio on my work laptop computer. Well after several trips back and forth and a lot of measuring I came up with a plan… ...

Setting Up Shop #2: The Tools Are Here

788 days ago by Rex B | 1 comment »

I have done a lot of work on the woodshop since my last post. My fiancee and I spent a weekend painting the whole garage, and it looks awesome. The previous owner had taped and screwed stuff to the walls all over the place, and now all those marks have disappeared. Once the painting was done, I was able to move my tools and workbench in, with the help of 3 strong friends. I’m sure glad I only had to move the table saw about 3/4 of a mile to the new house. Here’s what the sh...

Setting Up Shop #1: The Plan, Advice Wanted

796 days ago by Rex B | 11 comments »

So here’s the background: I bought my first house about 3 weeks ago and have been planning my garage woodshop for about a month now. I am almost ready to start moving in and figured that I can use the advise of my fellow Jocks before I dig in. I don’t have a picture of the garage to put up, but it’s a pretty standard 2-car garage with no windows. It came with some pegboards and other built-in shelving on the walls, but I wanted a fresh start so I have been removing everyt...

The old time woodshop journals #4: Sawdust sunday temple (Always stop and listen to the bells)

821 days ago by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

This morning was a sunny and clear day out…....the kind of day that actually fit the season. Our earth is ever changing, it seems these days people all over the map are in store for surprises from mother nature, some scary and some just plain hard to figure out…lol. I was driving in my truck…it was crazy out, cars all over, people hustling and racing everywhere. It’s so hard not to find yourself becoming the same way…. impatient, hurried and a bit stressed. ...

Community Woodshop #3: Momentum is Building!

975 days ago by communitywoodshopLA | 1 comment »

Since the last post I have been very busy figuring out how to make this work. I have met lots of generous and helpful people including architects and designers, artists, lawyers, engineers, and teachers. I found a great business partner and we are working on some really exciting ideas. Like I said before, Community Woodshop is not a new idea and when you start something new the best thing to do is find out what has been done before. So, my partner and I decided to visit the shops in the...

Building the shop #1: After a 21 year hiatus, I'm back!

998 days ago by MrMeasureTwice | 7 comments »

Twenty years ago was the last time I did any real woodworking. That was at NAS Moffett Field, where I was stationed as a Weapons System Technician on the Lockheed P-3C Orion aircraft. The base has a terrific wood shop and I treid to go as often as possible. Unfortunately, my hectic Navy life was less than conducive to long hours in the shop, so I did what I could. A year later I decided to leave the Navy. Since then I have only cut wood out of necessity and basic need, not for fun. So sad&...

A few sewn things #1: My perfect apron

1029 days ago by need2boat | 6 comments »

In another life I used to make outdoor gear. Mostly sewn things but like woodworking it crosses over into other worlds. Most of my things were made using some old industrial sewing machines that are seeing less use but still loved. The first of these projects is a new apron. I new the second I bought the cheep one at woodcraft for around 12.00 it would find it’s way into the rag bin but I figured I’d wear it for a wile while I decided what I liked and what I needed. Fast for...

Setting up dedicated woodworking shop #5: Reviving life to the shop!

1050 days ago by Scott Wigginton | 1 comment »

Wow, can’t believe its been 3 years since I’ve really been in and around my shop! Let’s just say life has been busy and higher priorities have derailed me for awhile. This summer we decided to build a new house on our property and while thinking about actually having an attached garage got me tinkering in Visio. While looking at the plans with a coworker he noticed some of my handtools I was planning to move into the shop and found out he was a fellow WWer. After sever...
