Shop Renevations #1: The start of something great

03-31-2008 04:40 PM by Woodshopfreak | 19 comments »

Okay, I have talked about this for a while, and I have been saveing some money for it, but I just now started the renevation of my home shop. I am going to be downgradeing in lengh but square feet wise, it is the same. the only thing that conserns me is infeed and outfeed length for my tablesaw. I can only cut about a 4 foot board with it, but anything larger I guess I can have run out the door. Me and my dad are doing all the work ourselves. We already moved everything over to the final plac...

Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

12-24-2013 08:14 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

The Puyallup Fair #1: Gearing up

08-13-2011 12:50 AM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

As some here know, I enjoy entering my woodworking projects in the local Fair Competitions. This year is no exception. Last year I entered a Wooden geared clock at the Orange County Fair in Southern California. This year I will be entering the same clock in the Puyallup Fair in Western Washington (My new home). I learned a lot at the OC Fair about displaying my clocks and how the way it is judged makes a huge difference in how it is awarded. The clock was delivered to the OC Fair in pieces, s...

Wall Cabinet #4: Hinge Mortises

04-18-2007 04:02 AM by cheller | 5 comments »

I’m closing in on completing the construction of the wall cabinet. Progress this past week has been on the hinge mortises. I’ve got the mortises in the doors done, as well as two of the four in the case. I’m cutting the mortises by hand – using a marking gauge to mark the depth and width and doing the rest with a chisel. It’s slow work – the door frames and case are maple, after all, but satisfying. Here’s a picture of one of the mortises, wi...

Cabinet Doors and Hinges

08-03-2017 01:19 PM by Scott1958 | 3 comments »

Hi Guys, a relative novice at woodworking, I recently took on a cabinet project for my workshop from the special Small Shops issue of Woodsmith. It is a basic wall cabinet using 3/4 plywood and hardwood of your choice for door frames and face frame. I used maple. Doors are inset and they were my first ever mortise and tenons. I must say that despite a couple mistakes along the way I was very pleased with the mostly finished project until it came time to install the doors. The first boot camp ...

Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging #1: Design, and first night's progress

06-26-2014 07:57 AM by jmartel | 3 comments »

After seeing a few of my other veneer works, I was approached to make a Red Sox wall hanging for someone to give as a gift. Seeing as how I am still looking for more experience on this marquetry kick I’m on, I decided to go for it. Now, I’m not a fan of Baseball period, so don’t let this logo make you think I’m a Red Sox fan. We decided on a rather large size of 24”x24” overall, which will be more beneficial to me for the small pieces that needed cutting...

New Shop! #3: taking down the back wall.

06-30-2012 09:06 PM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

Today we tore down the south wall of the shop. My Dad, my (twin) brother and I started at 7am and finished and around 2pm. We started be removing the tin, the taking out studs and posts with chainsaws and sledge hammers. A scissor life made this much easier then using a ladder. There were four large wooden posts which were about 4 feet in the ground that were pulled out by a Deere 50D mini excavator. We also had to remove the existing garage door. The reason we took down this wall today is so...

Building the Spine Desk #4: Now That's Better!

02-09-2016 09:56 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Above] After having some special alone time with my band saw, I cut out the new pieces for the brackets. Before removing the tape, I broke out my new friend and sanded the curved edges. [Below] Breaking the tape shows the dadoes I made on the pieces. This time they came out perfect! The pieces fit together pretty tight. [Below] So I glued them together and clamped them. [Below] So now it’s just a matter of drilling, sanding, assembling and a little more cutting.

Random shop notes #8: Wire brushes and brooms.

08-17-2010 09:23 PM by AnnaEA | 2 comments »

I spent a loud morning dragging my washer and dryer across the basement. Once they were out of the way I settled in for a grimy and dull bout of wall scraping and brushing. I also gave eviction papers to some 347 spiders of various sizes, most of whom went peacefully and without protest. I am so pleased with the ‘peacefully and without protest’ aspect of my spider eviction operation that I am adamantly refusing to think of where they might have relocated too. I have al...
