Sliding Dust Manifold

02-06-2016 01:06 PM by Navaar | 2 comments »

My workshop is a small garage with a low ceiling.I waste a lot of time unplug & plugging-in my dust extractor. My main tools are:- DeWalt DW745 table saw- Bosch GCM12GDL mitre saw- Festool TS55 track saw- Mirka CEROS 650CV 150mm orbit sander I wanted to make a simple/cheap device to transfer suction to each tool in turn, I came up the the following which I could fix to my garage ceiling: Next a quick sketch in my notebook: I had some white showerboard which I thought would be...

My Small Log Cabin Workshop #2: Saw Horses

01-26-2016 09:09 AM by Jordash | 6 comments »

Now that I had a workshop I needed to build the facilities to use my tools. I have been doing this with a relatively low budget, that means making what I can, if not then buying second hand or saving up if I needed to buy new. I always planned to start with hand tools to build up some core skills to base my woodworking on. Therefore I entendres to build a variant of the English workbench based on the Paul Sellers YouTube videos, but before I could do that I needed to build some saw horses....

My Small Log Cabin Workshop #1: The start of my journey into woodworking

01-25-2016 01:28 PM by Jordash | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, I’m very new to lumberjocks and fairly new to woodworking. I intend this blog series to show how I got started and the first projects I took on, which were all about setting up my workshop. Then I hope to update the series each time I update the workshop, which as we all know is a never ending project. I’ll start with a little history, my wife and I converted a van into a campervan. We loved the project and I got bitten by the woodwork bug whilst building the ca...

Workshop 2016 #3: Onward and upward!

01-20-2016 06:45 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Now that the new year has started I’m getting entangled in fine tuning my new space and all the daydreams that go along with it. The table saw has had a few small, short runs checking the fence and installing risers to my assembly table so that it can learn a new trick as an out feed table! I had a small bit of oak ply laying around and it works out perfect to add just the right height I needed to the table. As you’ll see it’s just barely below the table saw top so the...

In the begining...

A real wood working shop, something I have always wanted. However, time, money and location have yet to be on my side. While no stranger to wood and the useful/ wonderful things you can create from it, most of my working life to this point has meant portable tools loaded into a company van parked out front of the house.That’s how I have fed my wonderful better half and our 5 kids.That era has ended, and the modest “storage shed” I hastily built a few years ago is about to be...

Workshop 2016 #2: Christmas blessings.

01-11-2016 12:59 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

Christmas 2015 was one that held many changes for me and inherently for my woodworking too. In the past my family has been pretty diligent in purchasing tools for me of all sorts and has filled in the gaps of those items that are required for pushing my skills upwards. However, the larger sized powertools have always been slightly out of reach for me by way of monetary limitations or just that my family didn’t feel comfortable making a purchase that requires a lot of knowledge. I.E. h...

Workshop 2016 #1: It came to pass...

01-10-2016 05:25 AM by Ty Sullivan | 5 comments »

The end of this past year saw the essential death of what was to have been a tiny shop/shed workshop. I went over ten months without completing or even beginning a single woodworking project and at the beginning of the year I was convinced it would be a VERY long time before that was to change but….it apparently all came to pass with my grandparents contacting me to let me know they had found me a tablesaw that a widow was parting with a few years after her woodworking husband had pass...

My Roubo Workbench. #1: Concept.

01-01-2016 04:25 PM by joedillon | 0 comments »

I’ve yearned for a few years now to have my own space, my own small shop and build my own bench.I’ve been inspired by YouTube contributers such as Paul Sellers, Billy’s Little Bench to build my own bench, that I didn’t actually need a workshop full of powerful tools to create a sturdy, purposeful and beautiful bench. My initial problem was designing the bench, what goes where, dimensions, what type of joinery to use and how to execute it. I didn’t want ...

The "Shed" #4: Plans are meant to be changed

10-15-2015 11:59 PM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

There is what we want to do and what happens and lastly what happens to us and in the case of my shed workshop it has thoroughly had all plans halted in the most direct of ways. With a pretty straight lined change in my personal life I have been unable to make any progress on the shed since December of 2014 and it is looking as though my shed shop will be altered into a plain ole’ shed. Over the next few months, leading into winter, my life will again be changing as it has been throug...
