New Shop building! #7: My take on clamp storage

09-10-2014 08:40 PM by JoeinGa | 7 comments »

Finally getting some stuff set up in the new shop. I retired from the workforce at the end of August (YEA, ME) and have been taking it easy so far (Gotta pace myself you know) I have been (slowly) unpacking the 11’ X 20’ storage area that I put up almost 13 months ago. Closed off about 1/2 of a 2-car carport and stuffed everything from my 30’ X 40’ shop that I brought down here from 10aSEE. It was simple plywood walls on 2X4 frames, put together with decking screws...

In my above video I share a recent visit that I made to the newly finished woodworking workshop of Frank Klausz.

Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

Elia Bizzarri’s Windsor Chair Workshop Tour

07-30-2014 01:37 AM by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of Elia Bizzari’s traditional Windsor chair workshop in Hillsboro, North Carolina. I found Elia to not only be warm & welcoming, but incredibly hilarious. We had some great laughs together in his workshop and will be working on filming a DVD together in the near future. Please contact me if a Windsor chair tutorial DVD interests you. Elia started traditional woodworking as a teenager, and eventually discovered his passion for making trad...

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 ...

Shop Retrofit (TheBat Cave) #1: History

06-26-2014 11:39 AM by Bob Current | 17 comments »

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 ...

Wood Thoughts #10: IKEA and the Workshop (Should Those Words Ever Be in the Same Sentence?)

06-13-2014 06:54 PM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

- 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?

The building of a basement workshop. #4: Walls are up, now building the workbenches.

05-12-2014 11:46 AM by thechipcarver | 1 comment »

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.
