Once in a lifetime we achieve a level of perfection so high we wonder if our very lives will ever be the same! That is what I imagine all of you will think the moment you see the new drill press table. Or, at the very least, you’ll have a good time laughing at me. This episode of Blue Collar Woodworking is all about the new drill press table, complete with downdraft dust collection, drawers for storage, and a micro-adjustable, X-Y sliding table. After that we show ou how to ma...

In this episode we unveil our shop-made bench top biscuit joining machine designed for fast, accurate glue-ups… and we begin the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet Build”. Plus, Stumpy gives you a list of things to do with your Sundays now that football season is over… Here’s some screen shots of the sketchup drawing for the machine. The most difficult part about the build was the mount for the joiner. It took a lot of work to get the design just right. If it’s no...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #20: Stumpy's "Accidental Invention" just might CHANGE THE WORLD!

05-01-2012 12:43 AM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I just wanted to build a jig to cut raised panels, I never imagined I would be turning the woodworking world on it’s ear! The jig we built last episode has gotten out of control! Now it does everything from cutting miters to trimming my toenails, and I am considering adding an adapter to open my cold ones! You’ll get to see the new invention run amuck, plus I demonstrate how to survive without a jointer and still flatten wood like a man. Then I tell you why my neighbor thinks I...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #19: Safety week? We don't need no stinking safety week! (Stumpy's Safety Poster)

05-02-2012 12:36 PM by StumpyNubs | 34 comments »

It’s woodworking safety week. I know, I’ve been planning for months. This morning I finished decorating the safety tree, I hung the red halogen safety lights all over the outside of the shop. My wife is wearing her safety dress and I am drinking decaffeinated coffee this morning, because someone said it was safer. These days there’s a “week” for everything. We just wrapped up “earth week”, already the third or fourth one this year it seems, which u...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #19: "Raise your panel!" Who knew you could do THAT with a hand plane + another contest!

04-15-2012 11:28 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane… ...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him! Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #16: Don't lie... YOU HAVE TOO MUCH WOOD!

03-27-2012 01:01 PM by StumpyNubs | 21 comments »

Ask any woodworker if they have too much wood, and they will give a resounding NO! You can never have too much wood! But they would be lying… Take a look around your workshop. Go ahead, I’ll wait while you’re gone. I need to go get another cup of coffee anyway… Back already? I bet you didn’t even go check because you know I am telling the truth. Your shop is just like mine. It has more wood in it than a bonfire at Woodstock. The problem is, it’s mostl...
