A Woodworker's Thanksgiving 2014

11-27-2014 02:41 PM by jeffbranch | 4 comments »

My space: the workshop. Recently, I wrote on Facebook sharing the joy of simply being in my workshop. It was a Sunday morning; a cool Sunday morning. After descending the stairs into my basement workshop, I felt this peace. I took a photo of what I saw and uploaded it to Facebook. I felt lucky. And why not, I had a hot cup of coffee in hand, the space heater was humming and my favorite music was magically playing from my iPhone. Best of all, my woodworking project was patiently waiting for...

Setting Up Shop! #1: Introduction & Where It's At Now

11-07-2014 02:38 PM by Jared | 4 comments »

Hi Everyone. I’m “new” here. “New” because I’ve been a longtime lurker, checking out projects, posts etc until now. Why now? Well, now I’ve got questions and, possibly, something to contribute. I’m a carpenter by trade, still a relative pup, just about 5 years, with a large portion of that spent framing. (Work for a medium sized company, the work varies from larger houses, townhouses, to 4 story condo buildings) Some finishing work as my sid...

Workshop #2: Building out some equipment and creating space

10-28-2014 07:05 PM by JHAstrello | 0 comments »

Well, since my first posting, I have remained fairly busy with both the shop – and other activities. On the shop front, I have reworked my layout plan (design), and have basically figured out where most of the goodies will go, at least initially. Having said that, I know have to do the thing that is tough for me, and many of us. I have to get rid of some things. Here we go. As you can see from my earlier post, there is a massive workbench (previous owners wife used it to make stained...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #13: Workshop Stalled, Back On Target

10-26-2014 07:40 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

Over a week ago I contacted Lowe’s for a replacement lever cap or swap for a new Kobalt No. 4 plane. They gave me the only new plane on the shelf, which I checked over at the service counter before leaving for home. Not only was the sheet metal spring for the lever in perfect shape and connected to the cap properly, the throat was better formed and the frog sat better to my eye. It just looked better overall. Before cleaning it up and putting it to use, I spent some time with the Kor...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 13 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #8: The Dungeon: Before Construction of a Woodworking Shop

10-12-2014 02:45 PM by Paul Bucalo | 12 comments »

Our house was built in 1900, as close as the public records will tell. I know many of you are living in homes quite a bit older, especially in the U.K. and Europe, that are in much better shape than ours. The difference is where this home was built and what for. At that time in our local history, Norwich was a sizable hub for railroad traffic. Down at the East end of our street is an embankment that once looked over an large train yard with an engine turn-circle/round house. Across the street...

Workshop Build #29: Leaving my fabulous shop!

10-05-2014 12:56 PM by ~Julie~ | 14 comments »

After building this beautiful shop, we are moving. Something I never anticipated when we built. But things happen and change is good. My shop is a shop to-die-for… I just LOVE it and I know I will never have another one this fabulous. I’ve written a bit about the building of my workshop, but really haven’t shown any inside photos. My husband and I built a 40’ x 40’ garage for both of us. The whole building has in-floor heat which is wonderful to work in,...

Shop Remodel #1: Removing workbench 2, nails are tougher than they look

09-25-2014 10:09 PM by Rick M. | 4 comments »

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I’m tearing out some unneeded workbenches and remodeling my shop.http://lumberjocks.com/wormil/blog/42571 As a refresher, here is where this started with my lathe in the way. In the upper right corner you can kinda see the awesome marking gauge made for me by Hammerthumb. It’s a beast and has it’s own special little shelf. So I tore out one bench and put my lathe against the wall (pics in blog linked above). Now it’s t...

New Shop building! #8: ...AIR! Gasp! I need AIR!

09-23-2014 10:06 PM by JoeinGa | 5 comments »

Back in 10aSEE I put my air compressor on the inside of the shop. It was in a corner and pretty much out of the way. I wasn’t always pleased with the noise, but at least it was out of the weather. And when I got ahold of an old compressor tank (freebie) to double my air capacity, I hung the extra tank using chains up in the rafters right above the compressor. . .But this new building is smaller than the old one (by almost 400sf) and the ceilings are just barely 8’ high, so I c...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #6: Finally made a home + important trivia facts

09-21-2014 06:50 AM by Rick M. | 9 comments »

Been putting this off for bookoo long time.Gotta rip out this workbench to make a home for my lathe. Fun trivia: That paper tacked to the wall under the hammer is a plan I drew for a set of end tables I made in 1999, it’s been there since. Demo! Trivia: the plastic bag hanging askew left of the auger bits has been there about 16 years. It’s a clear mounting plate for a router table. I built a router table without using it. Hammerthumb, if you are watchi...
