Laundry hamper #15: Starting the shelves

05-27-2022 08:37 PM by Dave Polaschek | 4 comments »

I’ve reached the part of the project where some precision is needed, so between that, some household chores, and spending yesterday afternoon serving meals to people evacuated from their homes in Las Vegas, NM, progress hasn’t been especially speedy. If you remember way back when I started this project, I think I showed a drawing of how it would go together. Here it is again in case you don’t remember. Each (plastic) laundry basket will sit on a shelf, which will be held by a pair o...

Laundry hamper #13: Top prep and more legs

05-23-2022 05:35 PM by Dave Polaschek | 5 comments »

I started resawing some stock to make the top for this hamper. I’m aiming for a top that’s 3/8 thick, so I cut a couple of my 1” thick ash boards in half. First I needed to clean up the edges, so I clamped the board in the face vise and jointed the edge smooth and square. Then I set up the table-saw as high as it would go, with the fence 1/16” under 1/2” from the blade (trying to account for the kerf). After running the board across the table saw twice, I had something like t...

In this video, I’ll show you how to tune up your table saw – the workhorse of the woodshop.

It allows cuts up to 36” wide, and 24” deep for any cut, and up to 36” deep in situations where the panel can slide under the cross bridge. Two videos to check out: Dimensions and details of X-Cut Sled Full build video or check out my channel the Thoughtful Woodworker for woo...

Plywood support, maybe too obvious to post

01-27-2021 11:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 15 comments »

As I get older, somehow plywood gets heavier. Anyway, it sucks. If you’re not there yet, wait, you will be eventually. I cut plywood on my table saw. It actually goes pretty good and saves me having to get horses out and use the skillsaw. I was looking at the rail on my saw the other day and thought of this. Nothing earth shattering and I know they have swing up arms you can buy, but I just needed a little support for the wide side of a sheet of plywood when cutting it. I took a 2...

The vices and sliding deadman will be made from Leadwood. Next up is installing some retractable castors and then the DIY screw for the leg and wagon vices. Stay tuned for those updates! Here are a few pictures of the process so far. Glue-up on the laminated legs: Squaring up the legs after lamina...
