Shop Stuff. #4: Getting Started (Finally)

02-07-2010 11:35 PM by rsmith71 | 6 comments »

Finally getting past ideas and starting to work on what I want to do with my garage/shop. I’ve been looking for ideas and drawing stuff up, trying to decide what I wanted and where to start. I couldn’t really decide where to start so I spent last night building face frames for 4 of the cabinets (router table, workbench, scroll saw & bandsaw bench, & a mobile stand for benchtop tools). Frames are done and now to start cutting sheet goods. I clamped the 3 frames for the r...

Planning the Makeover #1: SketchUp Plans - Workbench #1

02-04-2010 04:01 AM by Jeison | 6 comments »

Edit: Thanks to everyone (esp DaveR) for their suggestions/help/nitpicking :D I completely redid the project and got rid of the wierd dimensions and such, and I’m much happier with it now. I didn’t bother with cutouts or shims for the vise this time since until I get one, thats kind of pointless, and overall tried to keep it simple. Here is the Sketchup File I had fun working on the Sheet Goods rack, I decided to get going on some of the other projects I have planned for t...

Workshop Rehab #1: My First Workbench

01-23-2010 12:38 AM by evause | 4 comments »

I’ve decided to get into woodworking – specifically to build some new cabinets for the office in kitchen. I’ve realized in order to do this (if I’m serious), I’m going to have improve my existing workspace – and at the same time, get some practice. Until this part of the project is complete, i’ll just be posting the latest picture – below. Frame is assembled.

Workbench #1: Entering the Design Phase

01-22-2010 04:48 AM by HungryTermite | 7 comments »

I just finished “Workbenches” by Chris Schwarz. I really enjoyed the book and it gave me a boost of motivation to get started on my workbench project. I enjoyed his writing style, his humor, as well as the little bit of history that was sprinkled in. I saw the quote somewhere years ago that “A man that does not know the history of his trade is continually forced to reinvent the wheel”. I tend to believe that. My current workbench is a folding table from costco. ...

Extremely Average #9: My First Project

01-11-2010 04:56 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

“When you have completed 95% of your journey, you are only halfway there.” -Japanese Proverb I need to remember this proverb whenever I approach the end of a project. I find that there are two finish lines when it comes to my tasks. The first finish line is where I start to feel good about what I have accomplished and the second one is where the project is actually completed. This is certainly the case for my workbench. It was, actually still is, my first project. The day tha...

Idea

01-09-2010 04:44 PM by LeChuck | 5 comments »

As I’m setting up and building my workshop, and seeing all those really nice workbenches built by woodworkers here, I’m thinking that I’d really love to build my own, but how to build a piece that will last me a long time while keeping the cost down on a limited budget. Hardware will cost money. I’ll have to buy a couple decent quality vises, so I’ll need to keep the cost of wood down. For the base, I’m thinking that I could go for construction grade ...

Workbench #1: The Bench

01-06-2010 05:21 PM by FiremanFrank | 4 comments »

This is my first woodworking project that I began when my daughter was first brought home from the hospital. The plan was from a woodworking TV show I saw on PBS one day and said “I can do that”. She is now 7 months old and I still have not had a chance to finish this workbench. I squeeze in time when I can. It is constructed from SYP and 3/4” MDF (3” thick on tabletop), and is a heavy workbench. It doesn’t need much more attention just a few more coats of p...
