Woodshop/Garage Build #7: Walls and Windows and a roof... Oh my!

09-16-2015 01:17 AM by BMichs75 | 2 comments »

The last weekend in August I finally got around to erecting the woodshop/garage structure. It took 7 guys and a Gradall 13 hours to erect the building and finish the roof substructure. We lifted the small walls off the 50 footers and set the long walls in place first, followed by the smaller walls. I will say my cheeks were clenched pretty tight when the first 50 foot wall was lifted and spun 180degrees before being set. It’s really amazing to see all the work and how fast things come t...

A Strategy for Woodworking #57: The Battleship

08-03-2015 02:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 11 comments »

Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...

It Starts With a Workbench #3: Project: Get this thing off the ground

06-29-2015 11:43 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

It seemed so simple when I thought about it, a workbench seemed like the perfect place to start my woodworking hobby, then from there I can easily figure out what tools I need to complete the job. As it turns out, you can’t exactly start with just a workbench. You need to get off the ground before you can get your hobby off the ground. First I really fussed over what type of bench I wanted to make. Well, that wasn’t very fruitful. I WANTED to make a bench that was 92” lon...

My Gringo Workshop Project #3: part 2.5

06-29-2015 11:44 AM by thegringowoodworker | 0 comments »

Why am I writing part 2.5 as opposed to part 3? Well,I wanted to take some time to point out several things that I may have insinuated and update some points. The article was not written to point out the mistakes of the fine woodworking, but to illustrate the inaccuracy of information. When the press writes up the information without writing about the complete picture, I am in no way trying to point a finger and yell ”Lk!”, but to say, why only show a glass half full? I simply became i...

A Strategy for Woodworking #54: Being in the Shop

06-08-2015 01:21 PM by Gary Rogowski | 7 comments »

I cannot tell what woodworking does for most people. For some it is a simple hobby. It is a pastime where you get to work with some tools and build something nice or useful. For others it’s a job, how you make your money and provide for your family. Still for other woodworkers I think it is an important escape from the world. The shop becomes a spot where you can finally be in control for a change. You alone are responsible for the failures and successes at the bench. You get the credit fo...

05-25-2015 03:17 AM by CharlieK | 0 comments »

One cool thing I saw at the Handworks event was this guy using a Treadle Spring Pole Lathe. His name is Jarrod Stone Dahl. I have a link to his website in the video’s description on YouTube. Anyway, I shot this very short video of him. I am also trying some new things with my YouTube videos. Please let me know what you like or don’t like about it! Thanks!Charlie View on YouTube
