Mobile Workstation #1: The center of my shop renovation - from the ground up..

03-04-2012 07:07 PM by chopnhack | 6 comments »

The mobile workstation is in my opinion going to be the center of my workshop once its built. An integrated router table, table saw, downdraft table and ample storage in a ~ 5’ x 2’ area on wheels! Certainly not my idea, however, the layout will be done solely by me. I am open to all suggestions though, so please feel free to brainstorm here and let me know what has worked for you, what you would do differently if you had to build one again, etc. All comments and suggestions are w...

Bowling Alley Workbench #16: The Wheel on the Wagon goes round and round

09-18-2011 05:17 AM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

I wanted to do this for a long time and had the parts ordered and delivered a while ago, but one thing led to another and this was kept on the back burner and never saw the light of day. Ironically, it is now finished but still with no light of day as it is almost 11pm… All it gets is the light of the moon (which some may say is better). I really liked benchcrafted wagon vise (even a free plug for them) But for what it is I think it’s a bit overpriced (for a vise). Don’t ...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #7: Trials and tribulations in sliding dovetail end caps...

Hmmm… well I posted blog entry #6 this morning, and as of this moment it shows 158 views, but not a single comment! I’m either boring you all with too much detail and my mindless blathering, or I just have such a small following on this blog that all two of you were busy today…. Haha! Well I will continue at any rate, as I’m sure somebody who cares will run across this someday. ;) I decided after dry fitting the legs into their mortises to continue working on the...

TOE, the Trickle Outward Effect #1: TOE the Trickle Outward Effect

05-17-2011 07:17 PM by Jacquelyn Smith | 3 comments »

On my walk this morning I paused to admire the Willamette River. It is wide and this morning it was quiet, peaceful and full. As always it was flowing past me, underneath my footbridge. The body split apart and came back together again with grace and ease. After admiring it’s awesome beauty I was reminded of my work and the feeling of running in place. On the surface the river looks so peaceful so laid back like nothing is really going on. It’s so full that rapids aren’t even showing whe...

Got No Work?

01-08-2011 05:42 PM by DocSavage45 | 16 comments »

Got No Work? Got No Work? You are not alone. But that doesn’t make us feel better. We need to survive. Remember when we prospered? Charles Neil has asked me to talk about this and maybe by doing so we can help a fellow woodworker? The thread that has been going on o the Blog started with Charles’ piece. “So you want to be a professional woodworker?” Some themes: “don’t quit your day job,” “I love this but…”, “what have I gotten myself into?” Everyone has a different emotional...

Work(shop) in Progress #13: Reorganizing Single Car Garage IV - Getting in Shape(r)

09-07-2010 05:04 PM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I mean literally – I got the shaper to work :). I guess that would constitute as a tool gloat, although I’m not much of a gloater, I just like getting things done. I got this shaper off of CL a couple of weeks ago just because it was too good of a deal to pass up. I contacted the seller, and told them my budget which was lower than their posted price, and they agreed to my offer – I was psyched! I’ll probably set it up with some 3/4 bore cutters for cope-stile at some ...

random #40: outta time :(:

08-25-2010 11:57 AM by Gary Fixler | 21 comments »

That symbol is a frowney/smiley, because the news about my job lately is bittersweet. After the 7-month unemployed spell that started last September and lasted exactly as long as my savings held up, an old coworker got in touch with me about coming to work with him at an online games division of Disney. It was a really great opportunity to do exactly what I do, which is pretty niche, and it marked the first time the job skills requirements matched 100% with my resume. They’re usually mo...

Work(shop) in Progress #10: Reorganizing Single Car Garage I - The plan.

08-25-2010 04:37 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Lately, everytime I go to the garage whether it be to get something, or work on something I tend to always come back with bruised/scratched shins. The garage is a somewhat of a mine field. It never really started as a workshop, so tools and machines just accumulated as they came with no order or planning and each one made it more and more stuffy and cramped. My wife just asked me ‘why don’t you take everything out and reorganize the place’.... hmm.. that means spending...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #7: Exploring New Territory

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. I read that quote the other day and I liked it so much that I posted it on my Facebook status. I like reading and finding little nuggets of wisdom like that because not only do they make us think a bit deeper, but they also can sometimes inspire us. Emerson is great for that. I also like Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) because he had a knack for stating the obvious. I love...
