I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...
I have decided for my first project, I’ll do Allan Little’s work table. I will make some changes and some additions but basically it’ll be the same thing. Better start a photo log too. I’ll go into my little shop and take some pix of what it looks like now.
As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted abov...
The advantages of using kitchen counter tops for work tables. They’re flat, non-porous, and easy to care for. Great for doing life size layout and glue-ups.Been using them for years, really enjoy them and I find them for free. Check with counter top companies; when they do an install and take out the old counter tops they throw them away. Snatch ‘em up. You can also buy them new, fairly inexpensive from home improvement centers. Don’t forget to ask them for the ones damaged ...
Having a good workbench is a luxury beyond hope for my shop. It’s a 20×28 floorplan, but its full of machines and I have to garage our car every night. What to do? I needed something strong and stable, good and flat, but something I could get out of the way after a day’s work. It also needed to be light enough for me to handle. 50 years ago I wouldn’t have much trouble with heavy parts, but now, its definitely an issue. After quite a lot of modeling in SketchUp...
I made a clamping table for my Torque Work Centre I thought some of you might be interested in. The table was actually made on the Torque itself, which shows more of the versatily of the machine.I am setting up the machine to do fluted columns. More on that later. Thanks for the interest.For more on this check out mt blog on wordresshttp://kentshepherd.wordpress.com/
Now it was time to attach the shelves and sub top. I set up another hillbilly out feed table similar to the other one so I didn’t bother photographing the sheet ripping and cross cutting process. I had to cross cut the sheet with a circular saw and a straightedge but it came out perfect…well actually I was 1/16” too long so I hit it with my router and a flush cut bit and a starightedege..and then it was perfect!.. And the shelves were perfect right off the saw..I ...
