A Few Shop Items

03-31-2020 06:40 PM by Tom | 2 comments »

It has been a strange time in recent weeks. It’s been nice to have my family all together to ride out the events, but a bit worrisome. Last weekend was a rainy one and the spring gardening was off the table. I decided to knock out a few shop items that have been on my list for a year or more. I fixed up a band saw last year that I got from my uncle who passed away. I am more of the hand tool persuasion, but I do like using the band saw for some odd jobs. I decided to use up sc...

French Cleat Nail Gun Cabinet

11-20-2015 12:46 AM by davidcolley | 2 comments »

This has been a project on my To Do list for some time. Since I’m between big projects and happen to be walking around a few larger pieces of plywood I figured I’d knock this out. As previously noted I’m a CAD designer (we used to call ourselves draftsman) by trade and use some pretty expensive software at work – but for home consumption I use SketchUp Make (the free version) and it does all I need to in order to design my woodworking projects. The picture abo...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #11: My Name is Angie and I am a Wood Hoarder... Or am I???

10-26-2014 07:49 PM by AngieO | 23 comments »

Hello…. my name is Angie and I am a wood hoarder. Wait… there may be some truth to that. But what is a wood hoarder really? Is it storing piles of wood like this….? Or this? I did at least take the wood from the first picture and organize it. Or maybe one might call me a wood hoarder because I used a box trailer to move some “stuff” out of my shop. And instead of moving said “stuff”... it ended up sitting in front of my ...

Table Saw Router Station for SawStop Contractor Saw

11-24-2013 04:12 AM by Spencer | 30 comments »

Taking inspiration from zzzzdoc, tedth66, Jeremy Greiner, and others (here, here, and here), I am setting out on a mission to create a Table Saw Station for my SawStop Contractor saw. The reasons for the project are similar to theirs: I need more storage space in my small shop, I’d like a robust stand for the saw that’s easy to move around, and their’s look really cool! I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and many hours mocking up ideas and dimensions i...

Shop Project Efforts

03-03-2010 07:22 PM by Blair Helgason | 7 comments »

Hey Everyone, I hit a snag with my outfeed table last night and figured I’d write about it. A couple weeks ago I made a hinged outfeed table for my table saw. It worked out great and I have been using it with great success until now. What I realized last night was that I didn’t take into account the tilt of the motor when the angle of the blade is changed. Pretty stupid mistake but I really just needed and outfeed table and didn’t want to spend a lot of time on it. This s...

Air Compressor Station #2: Shelves

01-29-2010 07:35 AM by David Craig | 15 comments »

I was able to work on this a little more today. Time was somewhat stretched but I was able to put the shelves on. I still have to add a hose holder, handles, and the tires but its getting there. I am a horrible klutz at times and try to keep the floor as litter free as possible. The last thing I need is a tool that rests on the floor, complete with 50 feet of hose to trip over. This gives me a place to store my nailers, nails, little compressor doo-dads, and a place to set tools, t...

Air Compressor Station #1: Cart Carcass

01-27-2010 04:05 PM by David Craig | 3 comments »

I bought a compressor last week; a PC 3 nailer combo pack. With the limited space I have in the shop, portability is a necessity. Wood magazine had a plan for a compressor station in a back issue that I had so I decided to build their model. I spent a few hours last night cutting the parts and prepping the carcass. This item is more carpentry than true woodworking. Joinery is simple butt joints but will hold up for what it is being used for. The base carcass will hold the compressor an...

Try Square #1: Trying out a Try square

11-18-2009 11:01 PM by Jon3 | 8 comments »

I decided to make my own try square, in the spirit of the hand tool extravaganza I’ve been into lately. I saw an article by Adam Cherubini on making them, I think in popular woodworking. (If somebody has a link to the issue, let me know!) I don’t have the article handy, but the basis of it was pretty simple. I grabbed some spare Sipo and some spare Maple that already happened to be an appropriate width, a hair over 1/4” and 3/4” respectively. Crosscut and ...

Sanding Blocks

06-29-2009 03:54 PM by Jon3 | 10 comments »

I’ve had a kind of crappy blue plastic borg sanding block for some time, and I’ve been lazy and switched out the paper. I don’t use it too often, but its finally given up the ghost and won’t really stay closed any more. I decided to make myself some proper ones with a nice cork backing. Here’s the original borg crappy one.. The one thing I do like about it is that it is sized such that you can quarter a regular sized sheet, and they fit the sanding bl...
