Projects Committee

Hello!  My name is Ed O’Halloran and I am in charge of the Projects Committee for the shop.

In early January, the NCCW formed the Projects Committee to identify and organize project that would make the shop a safer and more functional place to work.  Some of the projects identified are:

  • Drill Press Table with Storage for Bits (Drill & Forstner), Clamps, and Chuck Key. (In Progress)
  • Router Bit Storage Cabinet with room to store the wrench.
  • Storage Cabinet for the Jointer. 
  • “Store Front” – a project to seal off the area above and around the front desk to save on the heat bill.
  • Coat Rack
  • Down Draft Tables for the Sanding Stations
  • Lockers
  • Cross Cut sled for the table saw

These are just a few of many, many more.

 

The way I envision this working is that anyone can step up and take on a project from the list or suggest their own. They would coordination the project and get it built.  I am here to offer as much or I a little help as one may need.  Ideally, the individual taking on the project would publish times that they would be working, and others could sign up for that project and join in.  Just keep me informed as to what you are working on and your progress.  This would be a great opportunity for a beginner to get some valuable experience!

There will be more information to come, but until then, if you have any questions or comments please let me know.

I can be reached at: eo@nccwoodshop.org

 

Thank you,

Ed

    Hey Ed.
    I have no idea how any of the projects listed are built.
    That being said, I would be more than willing to work with a “project manager” in charge, or with highly detailed plans, would undertake a shot at a suitable project that a novice, like me, would have a chance of successfully completing.

    Hey Ted,

    I’m going to start the coat rack sometime in the near future but I’d much rather be a mentor to a novice and have help you build it. I’m working on Sunday, Feb 16 from 1 – 5 PM if you’d like to stop over. Maybe we can hash out a plan and it can be your build.

        Hey Ted, I just realized I screwed up the time I told you. I’m working from 9-1:00 instead of 1-5:00. Sorry. If you show up at 1:00 I’ll have to leave. My bad.

    RECEIVED YOUR E-MAIL. IT APPEARS THAT YOU ARE NOT QUITE READY TO START THIS PROJECT, THAT’S THE REASON I HAVEN’T CALLED. HOWEVER, I AM STILL INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH YOU.

    AS AN ASIDE, IS THERE A WAY TO CONTACT ALL MEMBERS ASKING FOR ASSISTANCE WITH A HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT (I AM LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO TOTALLY REHAB A BATHROOM. NEED THE NAME OF SOMEONE OR A RECOMMENDATION TO DO THE SAME).

      Hey Ted,

      I sent you an email about this. I think it’s easier to work this out over email. Please take a look.
