Wood Shop Tour

02-26-2017 10:39 AM by Kuffy | 0 comments »

I had a spare moment this arvo after clearing away a bunch of tools to make room so I could begin planing, scraping and sanding some hall table components that are awaiting assembly. So I took the opportunity to film a quick tour of my 2 1/2 car garage workshop. It’s really only a one car garage if I exclude the footprint that my sliding panel saw takes up :D View on YouTube

Time to make some changes to the shop. #15: Demolition is over... now to organize the tools.

02-04-2017 04:16 PM by AngieO | 9 comments »

The demolition part is over. Now it’s time to set up my tools better. The flow was just not working for me. Every time I needed to use my table saw I had to pull it out. It’s on wheels… but it’s one of those stands that come with it. Works.. but more awkward than anything. But with it pulled out and the saw horses out… it created a small path in between and it was such a hassle. I don’t even remember where. I think on a Youtube video… someone menti...

3D Printing in the Workshop

02-02-2017 08:46 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 21 comments »

While this topic doesn’t strictly fit into the guidelines of timber product, it does incorporate the processing of said prerequisite, however, to err on the side of veto wizards I decided to blog instead of projecting it. We need to set the mood! Once upon a time there was this aging geriatric, living in Churchill Australia that was getting paranoid about dust inhalation into his alcohol infested body. He chose to purchase a Shop-Vac and attached a few tools to with the...

Workshop Planning #2: Planning a subpanel installation

01-05-2017 01:11 PM by joshtp | 8 comments »

My attached garage currently has two duplex receptacles in one corner, and they’re on the same 20A circuit as many other receptacles in the house. Thankfully the 20A lets me get by with a vacuum and table saw at the same time, and the lights are on a separate circuit so the lights won’t dim. However there is no doubt I need to upgrade the electrical, especially as I hope to upgrade to a cabinet saw this year. Here’s how I think power consumption will go assuming I do the u...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #90: Thickness Planer Cart Build

12-04-2016 01:10 AM by technoslick | 4 comments »

In at least one of my previous posts you will find the DeWALT 734 thickness planer sitting atop a smaller bench in the background. This was a major step up (no pun intended!) from the floor dolly it was sitting on. But it had two drawbacks that I couldn’t accent any longer. The first is I had to turn it at angle in relation to the bench top every time I wanted to use it, so the outfeed wouldn’t hit the band saw. The bench’s proximity to other benches and equipment limited th...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #89: Breathing is Optional on a Good Day in the Dungeon

12-01-2016 01:37 PM by technoslick | 7 comments »

Note to self: “Wear the mask! Wear the mask! Wear the mask!” Yes, a blatant rip-off of the scene in the movie Armageddon, when the amateur stargazer screams at his wife Betty to “Get the book! Get the book! Get the book!” I spent quite a few hours in the dungeon workshop yesterday without a mask on. I went to bed with a dry, rasped throat and woke up with the same, plus sinus congestion and a mild headache from the pressure. Popping some meds and wearing a mask t...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #88: Moving the Furniture...Again, or: Down to One Table Saw and Making it Count

11-30-2016 01:09 AM by technoslick | 2 comments »

Had an interesting day in the dungeon workshop. You may recall that I have two table saws. I went into the shop this morning with the intention of making a cross-cut sled for the Skilsaw contractor saw, only to find that the miter slots weren’t parallel to each other. Saw is now only good for carpentry, like ripping boards outdoor. Argh. So I pulled the saw off the shop made base. Parked it on top of the freezer. Disassembled the base for the Torx head deck screws, caster wheels and fou...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #87: Refurbing an old Delta 40-530 Scroll Saw

11-29-2016 07:03 PM by technoslick | 7 comments »

The other day I finally got around to refurbing an old Delta 40-530 single-speed scroll saw I bought a few years back. It has been sitting in my dungeon workshop all that time, gathering sawdust, dungeon dust, and more than a fair share of new rust over the old. Here’s what it looked like before disassembly: There is surface rust over all of the table top and blade guide hardware. The blower hose has hardened to the point where it’s no longer flexible enough to allow the up...

Woodshop/Garage MK II #1: Phase I rearrange

11-27-2016 02:48 AM by bj383ss | 9 comments »

So my wife and I moved into a new home this past January. With our 2 boys growing up and the housing market here in Austin, TX skyrocketing it was time. We were in the old house for a little over 10 years and had some great equity. So the best part about this from my standpoint beside the bigger house was a 3 car garage and I built a 12×18 storage shed in the backyard that is split into a 12×10 workshop, and 12×8 storage. So the 3rd bay of the garage is now the woodshop and ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #83: The Dungeon Workshop - Scroll Saw Table

11-02-2016 07:39 PM by technoslick | 2 comments »

The last shop bench or table to be made is now complete. I had set aside to the left of the refurbished Blue Hawk router table enough space for a narrow table. Construction started this past Saturday. I wanted it to be simple in design, using reclaimed lumber I had laying around on the premises. I also wanted it to be a generic design, just in case this old scroll saw of mine turns out to be a bad investment. This meant allowing ample leg room under the table from the ends as well as from ...
