Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #105: Scrappy Solution

07-21-2019 07:10 PM by retired_guru | 0 comments »

I found a simple solution in the ongoing reorganization of the Dungeon Workshop. The challenge in finding the home for benchtop tools is when the unit has multiple angles of usage. A combination disc and belt sander is a good example. So is the WorkSharp WS3000. Besides the front approach, rotating the tool 90 degrees to the left and to the right gives better or needed access to wide blade honing and see-through free-hand honing, respectively. The research I’ve been doing on a rotating ...

Wood Scraps..... to save or toss?... that is the question. #2: Let me clarify......

06-11-2019 04:05 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

I guess I need to explain my situation a bit more with regard to these ‘scraps’.... - Mostly poplar and plywood from building custom cabinets for clients. Not a good source for bbq. - Cutting boards? See aforementioned species and lumber type. - I have a 950 sq. ft shop in which to build my projects. When you have a 110 liner feet of cabinets…. I have to go outside to turnaround. No room for a deluxe 4×8 ‘on wheels, mind you, scrape wood bin’. ...

Wood Scraps..... to save or toss?... that is the question. #1: What I do with scraps.

06-10-2019 05:28 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 10 comments »

Frankly, I don’t have room to keep scraps and I have to fight my inter hoarder not to want to retain ownership of scrap wood. Here’s my scrap bin… ready for storage at the local landfill. And they really look great by the light of the moon… or rather the street light.

Shop Thoughts

04-02-2018 08:55 PM by IantheTinker | 4 comments »

Recently I have not been spending as much time in my shop as I used to. I have no great reason for this other than I had already finished my box for the 2018 Boxswap and I hadn’t gotten around to starting a project that I find a tad bit intimidating (mostly because I attempted the project once before and botched it a good bit). However, I began the project the other day and have found success thus far, so I am feeling good. I am also wanting to try a project I found in the Small Shop magaz...

Table Saw Sled with small parts hold-down

01-26-2018 02:13 PM by CampD | 3 comments »

I’ve finally, I say finally utilized my YouTube channel. I’ve been taking Vid’s and pic’s of my projects for years but never really took the time to learn to edit and produce a worthy video. I tried to get my Electrical Engineer millennial Son whose extremely versed in this process to help the old man out, but, some of you may know how this goes. You see, I’d much rather be in the shop than take the time to learn a new program or even doing office work (like typi...

A little over 2 years of woodworking

02-25-2016 05:23 AM by jasonallen | 5 comments »

Today I saw some pictures from inside my shop that were taken a little over 2 years ago. At that time I had just started woodworking. My tools were few and cheap and the shop was fairly sparsely populated. I looked at those pictures and I was shocked. I was blown away. My shop has changed immensely. Since then I have gotten more tools. I’ve gotten bigger and better tools. There is no longer “plenty of room” in my shop. But the main difference? Scraps. My shop is o...

Workshop #21: ShopQuest 2014 Making Progress!!

01-13-2014 12:50 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

January 5th January 12th So a portion of that wood went into 2 of the 3 office projects that I recently posted. another portion has been sorted out and put in hopefully better more organized spaces. This pic shows wood that literally came with my house. Which means it has been in the rafter for a minimum of 10 years. I pulled all the trim pieces down from around the vent and found 4 pieces of oak that will make a nice picture frame. The rest was pretty much trash. I then use...

Reclaimed Glory #13: From cabinetry cut-offs to Simple box and Cutting board (in progress)

10-15-2013 10:06 PM by palaswood | 2 comments »

I have a bunch of cut-offs from a local cabinet shop that deals mainly with Cherry but I also get a good amount of Poplar from there. From the medium sized pieces (all 3/4”), I selected some nice poplar front and back, some cherry for the sides and I had one long board of Cherry that had a knot in the middle (so was discarded), and I simply cut the knot out and used each end for the top and bottom. It’s 9×4 x 3” high. I just set them up, and eyeballed it ...

Planed juniper cut offs #1: Attn. Box makers or small board projects????

08-28-2012 02:51 PM by junipercanyon | 3 comments »

I will have quite a bit of cut off scraps from some nice juniper lumber. It has been dry for about 14yrs. They are planed to about 5/8” thick, and will be anywhere from 6” to 20” long. I was thinking about bundling up packages of and selling them to interested lumberjocks. If interested, please send me a message with ANY reasonable offer that would be worth taking the time to package and ship these out to you. I just cant bring myself to throw the scraps away knowing they co...
