This will be my first time posting here, but I have lurked around for the better half of a year now. Lumberjocks is, and has been a great inspiration for me. This whole post is going to be a ramble, so I’m sorry if it’s not in the correct forum. Anyway, I’m 17 years old, and I live in Norway. I have always been interested in building stuff (treehouses when I were younger), but I was dragged into furniture making in 10th grade in woodworking class. I made a chess/coffee table, and a hanger from the rest of the material I had available.
Here is the chess table finnished, at my school:
Fast forward a year. I now have a garage full of machines (wood lathe, dovetailer machine, Walker Turner radial drill press, swedish stationary bench grinder, and soon a lot more from a guy I have gotten in touch with. The largest machine he is selling is a MinMax combination machine (shaper, table saw, planer, jointer and mortise router).
Drill press home:
I go to a school that has a special kind of education; I go both to school and work in a company. Normally you do one or the other, or do 50% school and 50% work. I however do 100% of both, but in turn I have little vacation and I have long days (sometime I have to go to school on sundays, sigh..) I use the pay I earn from the company to finance all of this. I have also used some savings and my presents is always money for tools.
I recently bought a collection of ca. 300 shaper cutters. It weighs a lot. The seller didn’t have time to split the collection up, so I ended up buying it all. I want to sell some of it to perhaps make a profit. (It cost 15000NOK = 2500,0 USD to buy. If anyone of you could educate me on the shaper cutters, that’d be great.
Here is a fraction of it:
But again, I’m not going to sell it all. So I’m in desperate need in order to organize it, so it doesn’t dull or destroy the carbide teeth. So I searched around on the web, but I didn’t find anything that got me to think/say: “Wow, that is a really clean and well thought out design!”. Space is at a premium, so since I plan to have a mitre stand, I’m thinking to incorporate storage into that. But does anyone have some pictures?
Thanks in advance!
