Video: SketchUp - 2x4 Porch Swing

05-22-2013 01:40 PM by JSB | 5 comments »

Hello folks. This week’s project is a 2×4 porch swing. It will be built with eight 8’ 2×4s. The arms are going to have angled half lap joints. All the slats will be screwed in from below so there will be no fasteners showing from above. Here is a video covering the design in SketchUp. Thanks for watching.

shop/shed? gotta make some room #1: garden shed to shop?

05-16-2013 06:07 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

I originally posted this as a project but I should have done this. Last summer i built an 8×10 shed behind the house to get my mowers off my carport, and garden tools out of my basement that was made for midgets, i think. This was built with hopes to be able to work out of it, though i doubted I would be able to do much. After the 48” cut rider and the push mower got parked inside, i had no room to do anything, but at least i got some stuff out of the way? The building was made from mat...

A new home #2: Off to a slower start then I expected; but progress and materials.

05-15-2013 01:05 AM by derosa | 4 comments »

So where I last left off was here Turns out I made a bit of a stupid mistake; I measured the door frame and added 3” for the jack studs and another 1/2” for shim space, only then did I decide that I should substitute the good section of a wall stud that I pulled out due to the bottom foot being rotted. Looked good till I tried installing the door and discovered that the frame was an exact fit, no shims needed; seems I forgot that the old stud was a true 2” wide sucking up...

Hide Glue for Beginners #4: A Little Hammer Veneering Video

05-14-2013 12:17 AM by shipwright | 34 comments »

I’m working on a new top for the sliding hatch on my sailboat to replace the $136 piece of medium bronze acrylic that I sat on the other day…. Crack !!!.... This time I cold molded a curved panel from 3 layers of 1/8” cedar on opposing diagonals and decided to make it appear to be a solid mahogany hatch. This would be difficult to press with either my screw press or clamps and would require substantial jigging to vacuum bag so the obvious answer seemed to be to hammer it. Of...

Getting my tools ready #9: What is the status?

05-14-2013 01:19 AM by DocSavage45 | 15 comments »

An update re: progress if it can be called that? The first picture is a somewhat organized chaos! I realized that I was in Hazzard County as my benches and the floor were filled with materials, tools and garbage. I decided that after the electric box was approved to go out and work on that “piece of ash.” But I was unable to move. The second picture is a slight evolution of progress? I actually put in about three of my shop DAZE getting materials and tools put on the f...

If it's Worth Doing

03-14-2013 04:40 AM by mnpete | 7 comments »

I almost let myself slide on doing something that would have given me much better results, but would have required some more work. Glad I fought it off! Do you ever find yourself wrestling with laziness sometimes when wanting to get a project done?

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #2: Dust collection for my current setup

04-14-2013 07:38 PM by djg | 2 comments »

Now that my thoughts have been put on paper, I figured that it would be useful for others to see my current workstations setup and some details on the design. The design was taken from an old shopnotes issue. I had to make some modifications to the dimension to accomodate the saw but for the most part the workstation is similar. However, rather than a router table in the right wing, I decided to put a downdraft table. The table saw has quite a bit of storage for storing blades, accessor...

In the beginning #1: Close but no cookie

04-11-2013 06:07 AM by DonLumberJohnson | 6 comments »

So to a certain extent woodworking is a snob sport. Somewhat because a table is not a surface to eat on it’s a stature symbol in modern culture. Square, level, ornate ergonomic, functional, and tough enough to prevent the neighbors turd kid from ripping the leg right off of it. When a craftsman progresses into the world where mortices, dovetails and dadoes are involved, acceptable tolerances usually can’t be accomplished by Home Depot or Lowe’s brand commercial equipment....
