Mother & daughter toolbox #1: How a novice plans a first project

01-16-2013 10:47 AM by ejvc | 11 comments »

Hello everyone – my first blog, my first project! I have very little woodworking experience. I sew a lot and am a “crafty” sort of person, but the turn to woodworking has been prompted by my daughter and the little set of tools she got for Christmas. I decided we’d make a toolbox, intended for the 9 “Red Toolbox” tools we got, plus various things like nails, screws, a pencil, sandpaper and glue… (The tools are: little saw, little hammer, little rasp, 2 clamps, 2 s...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #1: Frame components and tabletop

08-22-2012 06:09 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel’s Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table. The stack of parts is growing… Initial frame assembly… And the tabletop glueup…

Back to Work on My 2 Year Project...

09-27-2009 05:45 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

A Great Breakfast Rita and I had a great breakfast and visit with Dave Mitchell and his wife. They are passing through Billings and stayed at the campgrounds down the street since they are pulling their little camp trailer. We had a nice visit last night. I gave him the shop tour and showed the few pieces that we have been able to keep over the years. Now they have left it is time to get back on this little project for Rita. A Recap (Short Version) I started making this project...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #1: Some Features and Operational Videos.

08-31-2012 08:56 PM by shipwright | 24 comments »

While this is the beginning of my construction blog for the V8 Degree bench, I’m not actually going to get into the build just yet. There are a few more features that I didn’t want to clutter the project post with and I’ve added a couple of demo videos on the vises. I thought it would be best to start with a full view of the bench and its operational features first and get into the construction process in the next segment. This photo shows the dog hole inserts that hide a...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

10-04-2008 01:36 AM by lew | 10 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

Shop Shifting #1: Evolving shop needs create projects

01-01-2013 07:53 PM by sras | 11 comments »

I’m going to use this blog to track the changes I make to my shop. It seems like this is going to be a better method rather than updating my shop page . Also, several of my projects are related to my shop and it will provide some context. First up is a change to my wood storage. Here is the “before” set up. You’ll notice that I had to reinforce the supports with some plywood braces to carry weight. The motivation resulted from a conversation at work. A ...

Class On Kevin Rodel's Side Chair #2: The Back Splats

12-28-2012 03:58 PM by Grampa_Doodie | 5 comments »

The Back Splats Note: When I talk about the many parts of this chair, I name them as if I were sitting in the chair. Just to let you know where this class will be heading. I won’t be going into “great” detail on how to set up this tool or that tool. I also won’t be going too deep into the creation of each and every part. If I did…I’d be taking way too much of your precious time. Look at this class as a “tips and tricks that will hopefully make your chair building just a bit easier...

PCB270TS Table Saw Extension Wing (laminate)

12-27-2012 01:42 AM by JSB | 3 comments »

I have a list of “to do” items for the shop that seems to be getting longer daily. One of which is to make some extension wings for my table saw. Eventually they will be used as router tables. I decided I wouldn’t cut any holes in the tops until I made up my mind for what to put in them. So lets walk through making a wing real quick for this saw. First thing is finding materials. While visiting the in-laws during Christmas I was able to snag a few boards out of the loft o...

Dust Collection #1: DIY Dust Extractor with Shopvac and Router Speed control

12-24-2012 01:17 AM by ichbinpete | 6 comments »

I was laying in bed the other night, when the wife noticed I was a bit to distracted (not responding to her conversation). She leaned over and saw me looking at Festool stuff and started in on me…see I just bought a used 3HP Powermatic DC on craigslist and still had my lil 1HP Delta DC and a shopvac. Oh yeah, and I just added a PM air filter hanging from the ceiling. Needless to say, she shut down any thoughts I had of getting a Festool extractor, and rightly so! Not to be discour...

Around the Shop #8: Extending the life of Harbor Frieght clamps

12-19-2012 09:35 PM by Don W | 14 comments »

How can you resist. You’re in Harbor Freight, and there is a bin of clamps for something like $1.99. Now this was several years ago, so don’t quote me on the price, but they were cheap. First thing you have to do is replace the pin that rotates the handle. Its not a big issue, just a bit of an annoyance. Then the tip winds up breaking off under pressure. I’ve got several in my clamp bucket like this. i So today I discovered one more way to extend the life...
