  1. Workshop Updated workshop pics

    Cleaned up my shop, so thought it a good time to update my workshop post. It’s in part of a 13’ x 28’ portable building, built as a garage (flooring on 12” centers). Walled off 10’ for typical yard equipment storage, leaving 18’ for shop. Roll up door on end opens to the field. Not aircondioned...
  2. On-Off Switch at chest level for a dust collector

    Here's a little workshop helper I've found very handy. This on-off assembly is mounted to my two stage Jet dust collector. Jet placed the original on/off switch on the motor assembly which is about 18" off ground level and behind the blower unit. Bending over, somethimes around other...
  3. Square and tool holder

    For this project, my inspiration came from another lumberjock project I saw in passing, but I have not been able to find again. I have some delicate incra rules that will become ruined if I did not fix the situation regarding about how I store them in my garage… Therefore, after I saw the...
  4. My Infill Planes and Kits

    This is my first time posting here, so forgive me if this isn't in the right place. My name is Paul, I started making planes about 3 years ago and after interest from potential customers, I've decided to sell some as well. My website is listed under my profile, so if you're interested in seeing...
  5. Shed Doors (Barn Style)

    I have been posting (albeit intermittently), about the re-construction of a 12×20 shed in my backyard here in Columbia, SC. I shopped around for barn door hardware but could not locate any that I liked, or that seemed robust enough for these heavy doors, for under $250-$300. I made a temporary...
  6. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  7. Japanese Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I built this Japanese stool for someone, and wanted to use only hand tools. The stool has 12 mortise and tenon joints, and is glued together. The lumber is recyled from an area construction site. The top was shaped using tons of saw kerfs as stop cuts along the top to the desired depth of the...
  8. Corner Computer Desk

    This was the first project I built after getting my Steel City tablesaw. It is made from damaged Birch plywood from this discount bin, but being a corner desk I was able to cut around the damaged corner saved big. I just used pine for the trim, and finished with 3 coats Minwax gloss polyurethane.
  9. Dado Set Case

    Made this from some scrap birch plywood and mahogany for the trays.
  10. 24" V-Drum Sander

    I just completed my 24" V-Drum sander with the help of a 24" kit from Stockroom Supply. The kit contained the drum, pulleys, link belt, pillow blocks and mounting brackets as well as plans for the box and top. The box was easy to build and went together fast. I took a little more time on the top...
  11. Workshop Note Caddy

    How many times when we are in the workshop all of us need to write down a quick note, measurement or a list of things to buy and we have difficulty of finding a piece of paper or a pen/pencil to write with? I know it happened to me quite a few times. So when I saw this caddy in a magazine (I...
  12. A Collection of photos of my shop

    I have just posted 23 large photos of the various shop workspaces on my Dorset Custom Furniture blog. I realized tonight that I've been posting photos of our furniture here for a couple of years and have never posted actual shop pictures … enjoy your tour. The photos on my blog are much bigger...
  13. Cupola

    After seeing the copulas that Dudley made I had to post what I put on my shop. It is actually a working cupola. Inside it has cedar flip louvers that I can open in the summer for all the ventilation I want. The nice thing about it is that it is fairly burglar proof. I also designed and built the...
  14. Cherry Toy box

    This is a Cherry Toybox i just finished for my son's 3rd birthday. The sides and front are panel and frame construction with mdf core ply for the recessed panels. Cabinet grade ply for the bottom and back. The legs are offset from the face 1/8" to create a shadow line, I biscuit jointed them to...
  15. Tool Cabinet for a Workbench

    I found these plans in the 2006 fine woodworking. I needed to build the finger joint jig as this was the first time I used them. I also change up the size slightly but other then that it was per the instructions. I'm very happy with the design and final product, works great for me. I used...
  16. Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment

    Workshop Floor Sweep Attachment How much are you willing to pay for 1 meter of plastic tube with a handle and a nozzle, $40 - $50? Well I was not willing to spend that much for a floor gulper, so I gave it try to make one. I had a piece of left over tube, added 45 angle elbow, a piece of ¼...
  17. my first workshop, the dojo

    my first post… be kind :) after 3 months of lots of sweat and a little blood (but no tears) my first workshop is open for experimentation. and i am super excited about it. i hope you enjoy viewing this and let me know where i went wrong (for my next one). it is 16×20. as you can tell by the...
  18. Radial Saw Solution

    My dad's 1966 radial arm saw had to go. Its footprint, with its stand, was too demanding for my meager shed. But, garage sale offers of $30 - 50, ticked me off. This is a great saw! Since I am a maker of smallish items, I figure I can sacrifice some of my assembly/outfeed table. So this is my...
  19. Workshop progress

    Finally, some of the machines just arrived and preparing to install.
