maintenance time

10-03-2017 01:34 AM by emart | 2 comments »

Welp I finally bit the bullet and took on my sagging foundation. The building I am using was a kit from Lowes which 18 year old me built to exactly what the instructions said. the major flaw in the design is it didnt come with sill plates (I made sure the new half has them.) This caused water to seep in where the siding meets the floor and rotted everything out but the studs and siding. Eventually I got tired of machinery falling through the floor. After several good Seattle storms I thi...

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...

Building a better woodshop #4: bandsaw inserts holder

09-05-2017 08:37 AM by Sodabowski | 0 comments »

Hi folks,This completed project dates back to June 2016, I didn’t find the time to post so here comes.This is my bandsaw, small entry level but it really does the job with proper blades, of which I have several sizes and pitches. So I change inserts quite often. The factory insert was a crap piece of plastic, which I’m not going to show (too shameful), but here is one of my shopmade inserts in place: And so I finally made the jump and built this blank inserts holder. ...

New woodshop #2: Shop layout

06-21-2017 06:31 PM by Combo Prof | 10 comments »

So far I have contacted an electrician to update electrical service. Currently there is a 100 amp panel in the house but only a 60 amp service meter. There is a 110 line and a 220 line running underground to the shop. The plan is to put a 200 amp service meter on the garage and place a 200 amp panel in the garage with a 100 sub panel in the house. (Maybe that means a 300 amp meter?) All power lines to be buried under ground. I have drawn up this shop layout plan. Please advise me ...

The Workshop #1: Starting off

06-20-2017 02:54 PM by Eric Moon | 2 comments »

The workshop project is underway. It will never end, I’m sure, but it has to begin somewhere. It all starts with a big honkin’ tool. I picked up a SawStop 3HP ICS (older CB model) from a local architectural school model shop. It was in great shape, except for a dead motor. I played with the motor a bit and got it spinning again (crapped out starter cap) but about 30 seconds in, the magic smoke escaped. So that means, time to buy a new motor. $300 + shipping + waiting + a...

Mirock's Workshop Time Laps #1: Tool-pulling Long Wall Side Table

06-04-2017 07:02 PM by mirock | 7 comments »

Hello guys. I brought to my shop new machine and deficite of place become more perceptible. I was thinking about conception of my workspace and understand I was wrong with this table. I’ve came to idea that it is absolutely useless as worktable. All work anyway occured on central worktable and these tables always turned to tool storage…not so convenient storage. All this could be kept on shelves and wallholders but step by step tools migrate to table and lay there...

I am starting over from Scratch!

04-02-2017 12:12 AM by BigDClampit | 9 comments »

New Member Introduction Hello fellow lovers of lumber and woodworking. I had a shop in my large basement 20 years ago. Due to a move to a smaller space and a job change I gave it up and sold all my woodworking tools (table saw, bandsaw, router table, jointer-planer, sander to mention some of the larger ones) I also had a 19 foot long hardwood workbench. But alas the years ticked on and now I have large footprint for a workshop. I dont need anything fancy but would like… ̵...

Wood Shop Tour

02-26-2017 10:39 AM by Kuffy | 2 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 | 24 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...
