Random Updates #1: It's been a while, LJ's!

05-19-2014 03:57 PM by SalvageCraft | 2 comments »

It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on LJ’s and a very busy couple years for me. As you can see in the pic below, I’ve missed about thirty thousand posts on ‘Handplanes of your dreams’, and about twenty seven thousand posts on Stumpy’s epic monopost! In the past couple years since my last post I’ve gone through a separation, moved twice, bought a house, gotten married and now have an amazing stepdaughter the same age as my biol...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #4: Cabinets and drawer boxes

12-29-2013 01:17 PM by Garry | 3 comments »

The cabinets support the work surface which is planned for a final height of 38-39” to fit me (I’m 6’3”). I left 1/4” for shimming to make sure it’s not above the table saw surface. The outside dimensions are 20”x 20” x21-3/4” tall. Plywood edges are exposed since I didn’t want to invest the time to trim them for a workbench. The drawers are designed to use the drawer bottom as the sliding surface after an idea I’ve seen her...

Begginning my Journey

08-22-2013 07:04 AM by JRunio | 2 comments »

Alright, so ive been interested in woodworking for a while. Ive made a few half assed pieces (mostly using dull tools on saw benches or the tailgate of my truck). But that was when I lived in Chicago and had no room for a shop. After more than a year of planning and job hunting we’ve finally gotten out of the city and moved to a small town in Michigan. It took about a month to get the house together and start to build out the shed. Plenty of time plan the whole thing out in my head (...

Dance on a Volcano II #1: Design and material selection

11-24-2012 04:22 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

When I made the wall hanging, Dance on a Volcano I considered at one point making it into an EZ Mitre box. I liked the pattern so much as it was that it stayed that way. I go past it on the Stairway to Devon, every day and it always makes me think of a box alternative. So I set about designing one, using TurboCAD to 3D model it. I came up with this. My initial thoughts were to make it in solid wood, much like the original using; Sycamore, Pau Amarello, Yew, Padauk, Purpleheart and Ebon...

Tool Chest Refurb #9: It's What's Inside that Counts, Right?

11-22-2012 09:02 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 19 comments »

EDIT: 23 August 2019, removed broken Photo”Chum”Bucket links. ————————-——-——-—————————-———-————- So, The Outside of the Chest looks reasonably authentic now, and features a lid that keeps dust and other detritus away from the rust-prone surfaces of tools within. But after a spring and summer to-do list fill...

Dave's Workshop #1: Finally a Space of My Own

08-29-2012 10:01 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

We finally got our basement a bit more organized and painted, thus giving me a space that I can actually call a workshop. The two photos below show the area I’m working in. The oil tank is a feature because I can put drawings or notes on it with magnets. They don’t blow away of get lost as fast. The workbench is one of the first things I knocked together after we bought the house. Someday I’ll probably rework it with better legs and lower it a few inches. ...
