Community Woodshop #1: Community Woodshop LA - are you interested?

1022 days ago by communitywoodshopLA | 7 comments »

My name is Scott Stevens and I have an idea to create a community woodshop. My goal is to create a friendly environment for people to explore woodworking. People will not only come to use the woodworking machines but also to learn something new, to share knowledge, and to be a part of the community. There will be a wide range of classes offered for all levels of woodworkers (including children) and the woodshop will carry professional grade machines with some specialty machines not nor...

This Week In the Shop #5: End of Summer Program

1103 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 1 comment »

The summer program wraps up today. This summer saw the return of the butterfly bench. Students took all four group projects home to their families. Notice the recurring butterfly motif from last go-round. I think I’ll be making some linoleum stamps with this design on them at some point soon.The drums have been finished – lovely group of students to work with. I used a circ saw & guide to cut the 1/2″ drum cases (4 sides). We also discovered a neat way to spray paint our smaller obje...

My first Wood Shop – 1974

1109 days ago by reedwood | 5 comments »

. . Growing up in the hill country of Austin Texas, I was the oldest of five kids. I had two sisters, two little brothers, and my dog, Fred. By the time I was 15 years old, I remember how important personal space was to me. So, I decided to tear down the old chicken shack behind our house and build a woodshop, mostly out of scrap wood. It wasn’t that big; maybe 10×16 with a storage shed off the back. . .The best part was the 10×10 second floor loft which would ...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #6: Making a First Aid Kit

1257 days ago by steliart | 7 comments »

Making a First Aid Kit All of us understand the need of a first aid kit in the workshop, so there is no reason to emphasize its importance here. But do we know what this kit should contain, or what would be needed in an unfortunate scenario. Here are some nice guidelines I found for those who have a first aid kit and those who need to make one for their woodshop. You can make a first aid kit in many ways. You can use any sealed container such as a tool box, a small tool plastic case...

American Craftsman Workshop Video Tour

1296 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 40 comments »

A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms. I thought that taking photo & video of the shop would be a good test drive for it and a good way to share a tour of the American Craftsman Workshop. This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...

The Woodshop - A Creative Maelstrom

1409 days ago by wichle | 4 comments »

I posted a look at my shop tonight and found as I sorted out pictures to find 6 appropriate views that my shop has changed over the past few months. I added dust collection to my miter saw. I moved my router table from one wall to another. I moved tools stored on the walls from one spot to another. I put some tools here to fore in the tool box on the wall. Looking at the pictures gave me some more ideas to “streamline” my small basement shop. When I check in nightly to read posted LJ...
