Shop Stool with Adjustable Outfeed Support- Awsome Stool!

09-20-2012 02:50 AM by Sailor | 17 comments »

I ran across this design a few years back and it has always been on my mind and on my “to build” list. I thought it was so cool. I really needed a stool for my shop and the outfeed support part of it is pretty neat. even if I never use it it’s cool to “show it off” when people visit my shop! I’m sure Ill use it though. So I made a how-to video of the build: The plans:htt...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

04-21-2008 11:00 PM by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...

Entry Way Table #3: Cutting the Legs

09-16-2012 06:14 AM by AKSteve | 0 comments »

Well I have had a delay on my Maple Table top because I am making Drawers for it and I need to cut a bottom piece and I had to order that. So while I am waiting I started on the Padauk Legs and frame. This Wood has been a unique experience for sure, I did not know the deal with the grain, so I tried using a spoke shave on it, Big Mistake! since the Grain grows opposingly I kept getting chip out in the center of the leg. So I put it on the table saw to taper the legs, I really love the color o...

In the wood shop today #7: Applying oil/resin finish to curly walnut trestle coffee table

08-08-2012 09:19 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

In this video I’m applying my 3 part hand rubbed oil/resin finish to a Canadian Black Walnut coffee table base. I talk more about what and amount of ingredients in my 3 part hand rubbed oil resin finish. I can’t call it mine though, pretty sure it’s been used by many many people. I initially read about it in a Sam Maloof book I think it was called Woodworker. Well I hope you enjoy the video, I finish it up by showing the curly walnut book matched live edge coffee table to...

Post and Panel Construction System #4: How to Create The Pieces

07-27-2010 09:25 AM by Pete Tevonian | 9 comments »

Everything in this set depends on two things: cutting the beads and cutting the grooves. And those two things both rely on using the right router bits. Watch the video below for the short and sweet summary. Read the text below for more details. The Right Router Bits There are two bits used for this project—a ball-end bit and a bead profile bit. In this case, both bits have a main diameter of 3/8”. Through some testing and some math, I determined that 3/8” groove...

Post and Panel Construction System #1: What Is It?

07-08-2010 08:02 AM by Pete Tevonian | 1 comment »

The Post and Panel System started with the desire to let my son build cool castles out of blocks. But I didn’t like that regular blocks fall down so easily. A little kid is going to have a hard time protecting his castle from barbarians, pets and siblings if the only things he can use are gravity and friction! So, unlike regular old blocks, the posts and panels in this set lock together. In minutes, without any instructions, your kids (or, be honest, you) can create complex and s...

You've got to see this mirror finish on soft pine!!!

09-08-2012 10:24 PM by woodshaver | 34 comments »

I was putting a finish on a headboard I was working on and just out of the blue I thought what if I rubbed some Salad bowl finish (bees wax and mineral oil) on some raw sanded pine and then let it dry and spray it with lacquer. My common sense told me the lacquer would fish eye or bead up and it was a dumb idea. I always use sanding sealer under Lacquer! Well I did it anyway just to see what would happen! I did all this by hand… power buffing at all. I sanded to 400, stained ...

The Folding Stick Chair

09-08-2012 01:50 AM by Sailor | 14 comments »

A super cool folding chair! I actually found this project here on Lumberjocks quite a while back when jdtorque posted it. He found it when another LJ, eddie posted it. So I know it’s not the first time it’s been on here but I am aware that not every LJ has seen it (I recently met a fellow LJ for the first time, he hadn’t seen it). But I figured for those who have seen it and may be contemplating building one wouldn’t mind a decent video of how it works and such...

200+ Wine Bottle balancers #1: Wine bottle balancers for the wedding

09-07-2012 04:31 PM by CueballRosendaul | 9 comments »

About 10 years ago, I made a batch of those wine bottle balance pieces for Christmas presents. When my step daughter was here, talking about gifts for the guests who make the long drive to her wedding, I suggested these would be pretty nice. I was thinking like 1 for each couple, so maybe I’d be in for 50 or so pieces. Her first request was for 275 pieces! DOH! She later downsized it to 125, but I already had lumber cut for 200+ so she’s getting about 175 and I’m keeping th...

Dust Collection Issues. #1: 100% improvement for $100 and a couple of hours.

09-07-2012 12:44 AM by shipwright | 22 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...
