Weekly(ish) Blog #1: 180819 Shop Blog

08-19-2018 01:20 PM by Rob_s | 1 comment »

New… Old Yankee Workshop If, like me, you grew up in the 80s and 90s watching Norm and his ilk on PBS, but then got into woodworking in middle-age 10 or 20 years later, you might be surprised to learn that the world has moved on. What was New Hotness of woodworking in 1988 may well be out of date 30 years later in 2018. Attachment methods, tool technology, and other techniques may have changed. You owe it to yourself to get caught up, and I haven’t found a better way to do that than Yo...

Woodworking For Therapy #2: WOW! Fast results!

12-12-2013 01:09 PM by Steve Kreins | 17 comments »

A week ago I had to take a nap every afternoon and spent much of my day sitting on my butt reading, watching TV and surfing the net. Zero energy had become my new normal. Oh, I had a legitimate excuse, ”Well, I have cancer. What do you expect?” Then my wife bought me a miter saw and suggested woodworking. Wow! I never would have thought this would have a such a fast positive effect on my energy and mental well being! I joined LJ, got some great advice right away, and some very enc...

Green and Greene Style Clock #2: DIY Router table out of necessity... aka Skil bash!

05-01-2012 07:36 PM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

Necessity is the mother of invention. I have this saying above the doorway into my shop because just about every day I am having to create something new to be able to complete what work I have set out for that day. Yesterday it was a portable router table to replace the piece of $#!* Skil router table I bought from HD some time back. The router table has always been a pain in my arse and was never truly good for routing anything well. When I milled all the pieces for my Greene and Greene styl...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #1: measuring the model and planning any modifications

09-04-2010 06:52 PM by jeff_wenz | 2 comments »

So as part of a Murphy bed build, I wanted to incorporate a fold up (or hide away) ironing board. I have seen these at Lowes and Home Deport starting off about $168. They don’t look that hard to build and I sure think I could save some money AND incorporate some better materials. Step 1: Take my tape measure to Lowes and jot down some critical measurements. Ok, I forgot paper. Let’s see, what can I find in my glove box? Perfect, my State Farm insurance cards, I can use the ...
