Woodshop Build #2: My Space

147 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

157 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...

Woodshop Build, Varnell Woodworks

160 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 2 comments »

I am jumping into my woodworking career with both feet. Unfortunately, this is not cheap and I do not have any tools worth anything. Also, having a handicap, I am on a very limited income. So, what is a woodworker to do? Start small, build up tools one at a time, accumulate better tools as you go. This is the plan, however, I need to start somewhere and my income only pays the bills that I have. I have found a possible source for start up expenses. I just signed up for a Crowd Funding webs...

My Workshop #3: Settling Down

411 days ago by steliart | 4 comments »

The reason of delaying posting any upgrades on this blog was simply a matter of another shop move.Unfortunately the guy with whom we shared that big space backed-out, so I had to find another space and move on.Finally I did found a space good enough for my needs and settled down to set-up my small workshop. The space has 2 levels, at the ground level there’s the workshop,a small kitchen and a WC, the top level is mainly converted to a paint booth and drying room. The total space is 70m2 or ab...

Joe in 10aSEE's cluttered workshop

595 days ago by JoeinGa | 18 comments »

Someone started a thread the other day talking about how at times he was jealous of some of the other work shops shown here on LJs. The ensuing posts quickly brought to bear that it aint the size or how much big expensive fancy equipment you may have, but it’s the work you turn out that matters. I commented that when I came here and started seeing some of the shops here I was a bit embarrased to post pic’s of my place. Well, I decided that youse guys are right, it DONT matter how ...

Projects in process. . . #3: Pen states cyclone dust collector

1175 days ago by need2boat | 0 comments »

I’ve added these entries not in order of how they were installed rather as I’ve had time. As soon as I decided to convert my old garage into a shop, space was top of the list. When looking at how best to deal with things I decided to go with a cyclone and Pen state is within driving distance and they offered free layout. The close distance really helped as like most projects of this type it required a few returns and exchanges as I changed routing of duct a bit. If anyone i...

The Crapsman Legacy is a Farce

1212 days ago by Bob Kollman | 27 comments »

Craftsman-Sears, is like Charlie Sheen, either you love them, or you hate them. But I fall into a category that Ithink many fall into: The quiet MAJORITY. We know what we want, can afford, and can live with. Each time I get a new tool, I increase my productivity and ability to overcome problems with workable solutions because I have the tooling that allows me to use alternative techniques. As a new woodworker, with only six years experience, Craftsman, has been a big part of my wood worki...

Workshop Pictures #2: Pics with a more artistic bent

1396 days ago by David Craig | 12 comments »

Received some proofs of some pics after editing. I really like what Sue did with some of these. This one is my favorite. I love the chips and particles in the air - Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening - I like this pic, though I get teased about it. I am not holding the board with one hand while planing with the other :) I have the board in the vise and I am grasping it lightly for balance. And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictur...

Tools #1: TS3650 and RS1000

1548 days ago by PASs | 0 comments »

Snagged A Ridgid TS3650 table saw and a Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw last night.A BIG thanks to BOTIETRUCK for telling me about the listing on Craigs List.It was an hour and a half drive down to Kill Devil Hill to look at it, but we hopped in the Excursion to look at the table saw and made it an evening (and half a night by the end of everything.) Got there about 7p.m., did the talking and ended up getting the RAS as well. It’s AMAZING what you can get in the back of a Ford Excursion. W...
