Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #106: Flip-Top Tool Cart - Down-n-Dirty

08-07-2019 11:14 PM by technoslick | 0 comments »

Another episode in the ongoing effort to organize the dungeon workshop, which is driven by the need to have every tool, screw, nut, and bolt, in its appropriate place for when I have to pack it all up next year for the big move. In this episode: the completion of a down-n-dirty flip-top tool cart. My DeWalt thickness planer has always been too heavy for me to lift onto and off a bench top, so I made a couple of years ago a mobile cart for it. Unfortunately, the cart’s narrow trac and...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #105: Scrappy Solution

07-21-2019 07:10 PM by technoslick | 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 ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #104: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart

07-18-2019 01:28 AM by technoslick | 9 comments »

The Dungeon Workshop continues to be a war zone, but progress is being had, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y. This evening I finished one of two identical dust control builds, based on this YouTube video: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart | Dustopper & Ridgid Vac Cart I liked the space-saving design of John’s design. Floor space is at a premium and I need a portable system, one at each end of the workshop. This is what the first unit looks lik...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #103: Making Progress: Breathe...

07-01-2019 12:13 AM by technoslick | 0 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I said good-bye to my Hitachi C10FL hybrid contractor saw. It had served me well, but a move in the near future makes it opportune to sell it now, replacing it with a lighter, portable jobsite saw. I’ve had the DeWalt DWE7491RS for a couple of weeks . Just a little more tweaking before I will fire it up for the first time. Touch and feel has me impressed, and I’m enjoying the portability, being able to move it out of the way and park it wherever the latest fr...

Been at the woodworking game for about two years now and my shop has made some good progress. Figured I would make a shop tour video. Would love any feedback on the shop! Thanks for watching. View on YouTube

The She Shop #7: Grinding halt... at least that's what it feels like

02-03-2019 06:10 PM by rhybeka | 4 comments »

Since we last saw our heroine… there’s been some progress… It seems like we went from the dog days of summer to the frigid days of winter with little to no fall in the middle here in Central OH. To catch you all up: - All of the wall sheathing is done and painted- All 10 overhead LED strip lights have been installed- Most of the water issues have been mitigated -still a small area to do near the front door but have to wait until it warms up to above 65 for the product...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #101: Hibernation

01-30-2019 02:23 PM by technoslick | 2 comments »

Going beardless didn’t last long. I need to do a selfie sometime soon, as my glasses are different and I’m a bit grayer, too. For now, I’ll bless you all with an old picture of my grizzled mug. I’ve spent very little time this month in the Dungeon Workshop. It shows. What a mess I’ve left from the last time I tried to organize and clean up from the previous mess made making Christmas gifts. It’s normal for me to take the winters off from building anythin...

The Garage er workshop #1: She said I needed a hobby

12-19-2018 10:38 PM by Lyntonc | 1 comment »

It is rare that when one makes a suggestion to “her indoors” (who must be obeyed) that any poor guy will get what he wants. I had been thinking some time about how to occupy the approximately 2’6” by 4yards of space at the back of the garage and how, like a boatbuilder, to install as much into the small space as possible and I had planned a fine laser system to help my wife park the car in such a way as to provide a modus vivendi between wood, paint and a piece of German four wheeled engi...

Shrinking my Workshop

12-06-2018 09:33 PM by IantheTinker | 8 comments »

A couple of years back I took over half of our basement with my workshop. I took out the bathroom that was down there, took down ceiling panels to allow for more height, and removed some piping that had gone to the toilet. This resulted in me having about an 18’x12’ space, but shaped slightly like a “T”, with one portion of the shop being more narrow than the rest. The shop served me well and I enjoyed having as much space as I did. However, I have since realized that ...

Treadle Lathe #3: Cutting Joinery

10-11-2018 12:52 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Making progress on the lathe. In the last post, I laid out the ways (the horizontal boards that the head stock, tail stock and tool rest sit on) and in this episode I cut four tenons and two housing dados! This project is definitely taking longer than expected but I’m happy with the current progress and I’m confident it will be worth the effort. Working with oak has been a learning curve in comparison to pine. View on YouTube I can’t wait to be turning wood with a f...
