It's just an old rusty plane

05-08-2019 01:58 PM by Nor_Cal_Noobie | 2 comments »

Hey you guys. Sure you noticed I’m New, just wanted to show my plane score.It was in an old thrift shop with a capewell bench plane next to it. The rust hid these poor beings under the dust. I had to rescue them both up. I managed to get them with a slew of random other items for $30. You see, the only planes I have are a grocery store Stanley block plane, and a slightly larger wooden plane I made because I wanted one.Not to keep you waiting, here are some photos from this project

Modified Paulk Workbench #1: Modification

04-27-2019 12:07 AM by gmaffPappy | 0 comments »

I need a good out-feed table for my table saw, a good assembly table, and just an overall mobile and functional table for the garage workshop, and found this design. It’s pretty popular and there are a lot of blogs out there with modifications, took some from here, and some from there, and this is what I want to build. I ordered the plans from Ron Paulk's website and started my plan. It will be 6’ long, not 8’. Size is dictated by the garage’s space. I’m n...

Putting the strings on the Mandocello...

04-25-2019 08:14 PM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

Got really exited last time I was in the shop.. Made the bridge, strung the Mandocello and was able to hear it for the first time… Mind you the voicing is not done and the action isn’t optimal..( will most likely get the spacing on the nut between the strings closer also). BUT… I’ve been able to play this monster up to the point that my fingers asked me to stop… It was so rewarding and exiting to hear the response, the tone, and how low it sounds in person...

Porch Project #1: the plan..

04-25-2019 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

been working all week on this thing, plans were drawn up last week…..Single Brain Cell Sketch Up.. The “existing” porch was tiny, and dangerous… No railings, no hand rails, one step in 18”? decided to “add on” a bit, and add new railings, new steps with handrails suited to people with old, bad, knees…. Same view….new porch would also go across the existing concrete….tap-cons instead of screws. Across the front I wante...

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube

Shop in progress, criticism welcome

04-09-2019 02:05 AM by LukeB | 6 comments »

I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful outbuilding on my property that my wife says I can turn into a full workshop. With any luck, the budget should be there this fall. Plenty of space, stubbed for a bathroom, and best of all, I kind of have carte blanche from the wife as long as she gets to come play in it too. Overall shop is about 25×40 with a full second story and an attached 15’ RV slot along the long wall, which is currently home to a large stack of cherry and cottonwood ...

Shop stuff #154: Roubo bench Part 10...Legs and top joinery

03-30-2019 03:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Perhaps the toughest, most challenging joint I have ever cut. But, that’s why I did it. For the challenge. It took me a long time to do it too. Working less than an hour at a time in an unheated shop in the winter. But I finally get all 4 done up and the legs in place. They are far from perfect, but they will be functional and with wedging they will look OK. Heck, even Schwarz wedges these joints on his, and he’s has a lot of experience at it. Next will be the stretchers...
