Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

  2. Router table / cabinet drawer mounted Updated

    Like many I have a router on the one wing of the TS.  And yes it gets in the way sometimes but for larger work it works well.  Having been given a Bosch 1604 I saw opportunity in the form of a mini router table.  Scanning the shop I found a nice place to stow it away, in the form of a drawer.  Lost 3 small drawers but they were only 9 inches wide smaller stuff I can displace, albeit remembering where I did so may be an issue.
     
    To make the router lift I am using a small Lab Scissor lift.  About 4 inch square with more than enough lift for this task.  Put in drawer slides to guide the router assembly smoothly up and down.  Had to run a 1/4 threaded rod through the front to lock the sled in place after setting the height with the lower adjustment wheel.  While I know 4 inch DC ports and systems are all the rage my shop has 2 1/2 and it works, not going to go through a major refrb at this time.  So the port is for a DC hose but inverted as the side of the drawer has 1/2 clearance so nothing can stick out.
     
    For mechanical locks I am using 3/16” steel bars drop down in place once pulled out. To unlock push both up and push the drawer back. Simple but it works well.
     
    Special thanks to Stick486 for very helpful advice on both dust collection as well as motor ventilation.
     
    Others whose comments, encouragement, and advice were helpful:
     
    Gerald, Grandpadave52, hawkeye10, Artie, FIGatorwood, Smallpatch and Cal.
     
    For those working on projects no matter how complicated, post a work in progress. Amazing what tips you can get as well as encouragement from this group. Alot of cumulative experience to be had. I doubt this would have come out as well as it did were it not for the advice I got right here.
     
    Shout out to steven newman, he got me started doing work in progress posts as well as getting me to come to Patriot Woodworker!

    • Thanks Wood, ya it's turning out to be a pretty good little shop. I sold a bunch of big stuff last summer, and I have been on a downsize kick still. I am trying to get down to only what I need, and use, I am not a collector, so I really want to get to the point where whatever I have, I need. For awhile there I was a collector, it actually feels liberating to of gotten rid of so much.
       
      Wood, that Shopsmith has really proven to be a great machine for me. Thanks to @Gene Howe for recommending me to the Shopsmith. If you are still in the market, these can be had for a few hundred plus. The one I have, I have seen for as low as 750.00 bucks, or even lower, I paid more than that, and the price I paid was still a good deal, fair.
       
      The Shopsmith is not for everyone, you really have to think about the machine before you take the plunge, some folks will either hate it, or love it, I am in the love camp.
       
      Here is my Shopsmith in Table Saw mode, I also have a jointer and a bandsaw for it, laying off the side.
       
    • That looks like the perfect do it all woodworking shop! Love the shopsmith, if I had the money that what I would have probably gotten. I’ve heard people saying they have seen some of the early models from the 1950’s that are still running. Now that’s a quality built machine!
    • Al, that ol stool came from a dear friends home, I used to get my hair cut as a child on that stool. Our friends have long passed, but I have fond memories of hair cuts and adult cocktail parties at that home near the beach. I like it too! Wicker back, wicker seat with a rope weaved cushion.
    • I like that stool with the back rest near the lathe.
    • Outstanding.  Sorry had to use another word other than awesome, everyone else used it already.
