Riverside Craftsman Bed in Walnut #2: Scope Creep

112 days ago by DGar | 4 comments »

Scope creep. At least that’s what they call this at work. So last night I was drawing out an outline and she says, “What about drawers? There’s so much wasted space under there!” Oy. So a platform bed would be easy, but neither of us like the look of platform beds. We like the space off the floor that you get with a normal bed, so the idea is to create one row of drawers in the space under the mattress. It would end up looking something like this (apologi...

Making a dust hood for my Ridgid oscillating sander

1661 days ago by SimonSKL | 17 comments »

After reading many favorable reviews of the Ridgid oscillating sander (model # EB44242) and with a 15% rebate offered by the manufacturer, I finally bought this sander as my Christmas present. The more I use it the more I like the sander. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it has better dust collection capability when the belt sander is used. The dust just got collected at the end of the belt and landed all over the floor. I thought there must be a better way to collect the dust. Here i...

1051 days ago by Letorix | 7 comments »

Well figured it was time to start understanding and designing the tail vise. I have this model:http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2004875/7533/WoodRiver-Large-End-Vise-Slide.aspx Instructions for it are here. http://www2.woodcraft.com/PDF/77A41.pdf Here is what I have so far, wondering if a 12” end is a bad idea, also thinking I may be able to shorten it up some.Also thinking about the over all height, I see other benches where the vise is taller than the height of the table t...

389 days ago by Mauricio | 21 comments »

Hello friends, I invite you to join me on my newest adventure. I’m building some bunk beds for the kids. I contemplating buying them but after going to pottery barn kids and seeing pine bunk beds for $1,400 I talked the ol’ lady into letting me make them. I mean they even had planner tear out in them and everything to give them that rustic look. I can do better than that! So here is the plan: The wood is HD 2×6’s. I bought some plans online just to validate what I...

How to price my woodworking (and sell it) #1: How to price your woodworking to make a profit (and sell it)

427 days ago by huff | 22 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 1 So where do you begin to answer such a simple question; or is it that simple? I’ve heard this question asked so many times and I’ve heard so many one liner’s for an answer:• “Know your market”• “You can only sell it for what the market will bear”.• “I sell it for enough to support my hobby” • “It’s just a hobby, so what does it matter as long as you at least cover your material cost”.• Cost of materials x 2.• Cost of...

Workbench #1: Getting Started

1428 days ago by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

My son and I are finally getting started on our workbench. I have been dreaming of one forever it seems. I originally wanted to collect enough dogwood for the top. But, after a while and a lot of effort I gave up on that. Then last year I ran into a guy at the lumber yard that said he had a band saw that he milled lumber with for some local guys. I explained how I liked to do some woodworking and that I would be interested in some walnut or maple. We exchanged numbers and not to long after th...
