The American Craftsman WorkShop #20: A Little OCD Goes A Long Way

01-11-2010 07:22 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

I Think I’m Sick… I can’t seem to stop organizing the shop. I thought that I was done organizing and I started to move on with my project but did not get very far. I got sidetracked with getting my taxes together. This led to the realization that I could dispose of 5 years worth of files and paperwork. This led to me emptying out several file storage containers and almost burning up my shredder. I got a bug and started cleaning up the storage room. This allowed m...

Mitre Saw Station

12-28-2009 05:47 PM by Rileysdad | 2 comments »

I saw Blankman’s post on his mitre saw dust hood and thought I’d share my idea for a mitre saw station. This one hangs on the wall by a french cleat. I built it in three sections: left and right fence sections and the center saw section. The saw is the DeWalt 12” dual bevel model (not a slider.) I gave a lot of thought to whether the fence should be built on a platform or on the flat of the table. As you can see I chose the platform and I’m glad I did. I end ...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #13: Reorganizing the Shop Day 4

10-09-2009 01:44 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

Coming Down The Home Stretch Yesterday I finished the mud work where I removed the double doors. I also took the opportunity to patch the wall and ceiling where flying projectiles had left their impressions. I mounted a couple of hose reels that I bought several years ago. I had bought three originally and I mounted one but put the other two on the shelf. The first one broke and I tossed it during this round of organization. Now I have two but that is quite adequate for my shop. I us...

Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

09-13-2009 05:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

After 5 months of not woodworking i am finaly back at it. The first words my Fiance said to me were “Thank god you have your shop back. Maybey now you wont be such an ass” Aparently i was driving her crazy. 5 months ago my craftsman tablesaw broke on me. Its an extremley long story. I will just say that when sears could not fix the saw they refused to replace it. Even though i had purchased the factory extended waranty I was told that i needed 5 or more cervice calls in order for ...

The American Craftsman Workshop Update Sept '09

09-09-2009 07:32 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 23 comments »

I hope that everyone had a good finish to the summer by spending quality time with the family over the long Labor Day weekend. My wife, Rita, and I went kayaking with friends on the Madison and Yellowstone Rivers here in Montana and we covered 17 miles between the two trips. Bald eagles and other wildlife were abundant and the scenery was – well it’s Montana so it was beautiful! My apologies for not being very active this summer here at LJ and for the lack of providing real...

Live Shop Cameras and Woodshop New

08-27-2009 03:03 PM by Chris Davis | 6 comments »

Woodshop News, a trade magazine called with some interest in my live video feed a couple months ago. I just checked and their digital version of their magazine and the story was posted on their website. It is a short but to the point article about the camera system and how it is used for both marketing and with customer relations. Check it out at Woodshop News . Get a peek into my shop at wwbeds.com<div></div>

Shop Skills #4: Trusting Your Glue Joints

05-01-2009 01:29 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

Many woodworkers lack confidence in their glue joints. The way to overcome this is by getting to know your products and materials. This is accomplished by experimenting and testing – particularly through destructive testing. I continually test my off-cuts from every project. This provides a form of quality control testing that is specific to each project. In this video I show a couple of the methods that I use to test my glue joints. Testing your joints to the point of wood fa...

Setting up dedicated woodworking shop #4: Nature abhors a vacuum

03-24-2009 05:01 AM by Scott Wigginton | 4 comments »

It seems the laws of nature apply to my workshop. I spent all of last time cleaning it up to make nice open space and what should happen? I got and fill it all up. Acquiring more tools than space is a national pastime so I’m not sweating it, especially with the sweet deals I’ve been landing. Turning circuitry into Power tools I hoard computer parts, its ingrained into my geekdom. Never did I think it would ever help me in my quest for more bigger-badder powertools. Thanks to some...
