It’s been four weeks since I moved my shop tools over to the new place. Other, last minute panic, items got deposited in the garage too. We finally moved in about a week ago. Today I started to re-build my shop and on entering the garage this is what I found Under there (somewhere) is my table saw, workbench and router table! The rest of the place wasn’t much better Still I cleared some of the excess away and found the bench In three parts; frame, top and ...
The picture above is the area where my present workshop is being retrofitted for woodworking. The small windows on the side will be a reference in later pictures. The ruts to the left of the building are abandoned rail tracks. This picture was taken in late summer of 2001 shortly after our family purchased an abandoned brownfield site that had set for 15 years. My shop is located in the drive in basement portion of the old Falstaff Brewery bottling plant and is only a portion ...
- If you answered “yes” or “maybe” to the above question, please click this link. I returned home to my monastery last week, and boy was I in for quite a shock – the monastery moved without telling you?; changed all the locks?; turned out the lights and pretended no one was home? I only noticed one thing at first, someone had committed the unforgivable sin of utilizing the top of the table saw as a place to water and take care of Easter lilies. After I stopp...
Walls are done. To the best of my ability. Now, time to build the workbenches. Won’t be anything fancy since it will be made to hold all my benchtop tools. Got a free countertop and found some pretty good looking 2”x6”x41” on craigslist for $0.90 a piece. So it should be a sturdy.
Well, the original estimate on delivery was “End of next week or maybe the week after”. Then on Thursday (5 days) my wife called me at work and said ”The guy just called and said your new shop is on it’s way here. He’s hooking up to it now and they should be here in a few hours.” YAHOO! I’m as excited as a kid in a candy store! So I get home from work and several hours later the mover calls and tells me he’s in the next town (12 miles away)....
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I show a visit that I made to the workshop of legendary guitar luthier and bluegrass musician, Wayne Henderson. Wayne’s shop and home sit along a quiet country rode in the rural village of Rugby, Virginia. Read my original article here. Wayne Henderson’s performance resume stretches from The White House to Carnegie Hall, and all the way to the Queen of England. He is perhaps even more well-known for his world-cl...
Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org I decided to take last week off; Holy Week was a busy one and I needed a little rest – he didn’t go to Cozumel, no really he didn’t. But I am back this week talking obliquely about a project I started in my shop. Its a little hush-hush because I am participating in a tool swap on the Woodworkingtalk.com forum, and we are not supposed to say what we are building nor for whom we are building it. If we do so, the too...
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I share my recent visit to the amazing workshop of Bill Anderson, owner of Edwards Mountain Woodworks in Chatham county, North Carolina (near Chapel Hill). View the original full blog entry here. Bill teaches joinery and plane making at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School in nearby Pittsboro, NC. He also teaches at other well-known locations, including the John C. Campbell Folk School. Bill makes marvelous...
Well it has been a productive month in the shop for my daughter. She has tackled some pieces for her dollhouse that she wanted to make on her own. The first was a small easy chair and yesterday we worked on two beds. The chair was her idea and came straight from the scrap bin, at this point the miter box is the easiest way for her to work on cutting the scraps she has been using and she is happy to be using it, just working on those muscles. :) The chair consisted of just two pieces...
