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 | 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...
