Wavering Confidence

01-21-2018 12:13 AM by IantheTinker | 7 comments »

I recently began a project for my parents, they commisssioned me to build them a dvd rack from PureBond birch plywood. It is $45 a sheet, by far the most expensive material I have used, and I must admit that it cut be a little unnerving when trying to make sure I am making accurate cuts. I would hate to waste the material and cost my parents more money. Then there is also the added pressure of building something that is worth being paid for. I typically work with free material, on projects...

shop progress #3: rude and crude router table

07-03-2012 07:19 AM by James Alberding | 2 comments »

I finally have an upside down router! I tested it out and it works perfectly, for what I need anyway. I built the table frame to fit the piece of laminated 1 1/4” material that I grabbed from a pile of scrap wood by my work. Along with the rest of the wood I used for this. So its not pretty by any stretch. it took some creativity to get the router mounted under the table. I used a scrap price of 1/2” plexi glass I scored from work to mount the router base to. so I cut a ho...

Grizzman, a1jim and David, Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern’t really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing. Grizzman sent me a verity of wood from Dark Walnut Plywood to Cedar Wood and one I think he refured to as Antique Pine, which all of these pieces will eventualy come in Handy, I’ve yet to decide on what to make wi...

Why Are You So Expensive?

This is the question that I run into all the time when I bid jobs. Today I picked up materials for a small job and I mulled over this question as I stood staring at the cargo in my truck. Three boards of cherry and one sheet of 1/4” mdf core cherry… $217. Well, at least I got the job. Peace, Love, & Woodworking

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #1: Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart

05-06-2009 03:40 AM by Jack Barnhill | 10 comments »

I have a small shop, about 200SF. It’s not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it’s not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to accomdate the operation of the moment, I thought I would adopt the “everything on wheels” strategy and double up what tools I could in single cabinets. So, to make sure that I had the right designs and that everything would fit in the shop and ...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #2: What to use?

02-27-2009 06:43 PM by MyOldGarage | 5 comments »

Well, the weather forecast here is calling for snow this weekend. I’m anxious to have the garbage can holder done, but I want to keep right on going with projects. I’m contemplating loading up the truck tonight with some materials for the overhead cabinets—but I’m kind of wondering what I should build them out of. I’m leaning towards cheap and paintable—and light? I’m looking for some suggestions now so I can call around and get pricing informati...
