Part 1: And so it begins...

11-12-2015 02:43 PM by Vernn | 5 comments »

I used to be into woodworking to some degree several…ok, 20 years ago, but never to the degree that I really want to do it. That bug has hit me again and I am committing myself…I want to make “stuff”! I have quite a few tools now, but the one that I used to have a while back (that I kick myself in the butt for getting rid of) that I don’t have now (until recently) is a decent table saw. As a result, I started scrounging Craigs List for one and picked up a cast ir...

Part 2: Cutting Parts

11-14-2015 03:03 AM by Vernn | 0 comments »

Today I started cutting out the parts for the work station. Being that I don’t really have a table saw at the moment that I can use for ripping and cross cutting, hence the making of this station, I started out making some circular saw guides. I made two…both being eight feet long, and then cutting one down to 3’ and 5’. These are great tools for cutting sheet goods when you don’t have the use of a table saw or other means. At the time I only had two saw horses a...

Part 3: Stupid plywood!

11-14-2015 10:35 PM by Vernn | 3 comments »

Got a little further in the project today…had some frustrations due to plywood not be good and flat, and that was the cream of the crop. Nothing that wasn’t able to be overcome but just took way longer than it should have. I was working on the area under where the table is going to be and was contemplating on how to go about sloping the area down to assist with dust and chip collection. I was agonizing on doing it with wood and how I was going to cut some crazy angle as well as...

Part 4: Back at it...

11-29-2015 01:00 AM by Vernn | 7 comments »

Well, we got the vacation time out of the way now and I was able to get some work done today. Got the wheels on now so I can move the station around a little easier. And I really like the wheels that I got. They are rock steady when locked! The station doesn’t move at all. And when they are unlocked it rolls around with no effort. You can see in the picture below that I set the table saw in its position because I needed to rip the strips that you can see on the right for when I lay down...

Part 5: It's getting cold out...

11-30-2015 05:33 AM by Vernn | 0 comments »

I didn’t get as far as I wanted to get today…I ran into an dilemma. I got the red oak banding installed and it’s all ready for the laminate to be applied. One minor problem…the contact cement calls for the temperature to be 65 deg or higher for 24 hours before applying and 72 hours after being applied. The temp here is in the 40’s now and I don’t expect them to come up until spring, so my garage is cold. So, I have two options…install a heater in the ...

Part 6: Getting to the top...

12-07-2015 01:38 AM by Vernn | 0 comments »

It’s been a little while since making a post…life seems to get in the way sometimes. However, I have been making some progress. To pick up where I left off…I ended up bringing the top and all the materials in the house to apply the laminate. I put a box fan in a window and opened another window across from it to deal with the fumes…that worked out pretty well. I was able to get the laminate applied to both sides of the top and trim it up without any mishaps. And as ...

Part 7: Putting up a fence...

12-08-2015 10:21 PM by Vernn | 0 comments »

I got busy working on the fence guide rail and here’s a shot with it all fabricated up and hanging on the station. I have since taken it off and cleaned it real well and sprayed the parts with some primer. I think I’m going to have to wait until Friday to put the top coat on because it is supposed to warm up a little by then. I think in the mean time I’m going to start laying out to put in the router. I almost don’t want to cut into the nice top that I made…but, ...
