Just for Fun... #52: Not much going on... might as well build a birdhouse...

07-21-2011 04:20 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

Those of you who’ve been on LJ’s for a while may recall my first effort at a birdhouse which began hereSomewhere in there, I mentioned that there was another one to re-build, but I had to wait until it was vacated… Well, the thing finally fell to the ground and the sparrows were forced to re-locate…So today I had a rare free day, and decided to re-work this… Just to begin with, I didn’t like the “eaves” arrangement… I think the guy who ori...

Yep, it’s simple. And it actually holds books, rather than allowing them to topple whenever you remove one.

Making Candy #3: Bent Inlays

03-17-2010 06:48 AM by Andy | 26 comments »

I couldnt find any info that explained how to make bent inlays without using a router and a template, which is time consuming and limiting. I thought about using the bandsaw to make S shaped cuts and inserting pliable strips, but thought that the rough cuts made by the course teeth would show up, but I was encouraged after reading Blogs by Patron and Degoose on making double curve lazy susans. The cuts were made on the bandsaw and the pieces mated up just fine. So, I made a test piece. I trie...

Projects #1: Bench from reclaimed Redwood Decking

03-21-2011 12:42 AM by drsongs | 4 comments »

Just a quick Sunday afternoon project. I picked up some old torn down Redwood Decking a few weeks ago and have been trying to figure out what to do with it so here’s the first item out of it. Got enough to make another so I’ll probably do that with what’s left. Guess I should’ve taken pictures as I was making it but wasn’t thinking about that at the time. Just to give you a little play by play: All the pieces are 2×6 redwood decking screwed to...

Templates #3: Bandsaw Boxes!

02-23-2011 04:58 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

Man….I’m having WAY too much fun making templates. I need to get in the shop and actually build something for a change! I dont know what is wrong with me! :) The possibilities for bandsaw boxes are ENDLESS. However, here’s some to start you guys off with – probably ones you’ve seen before….but maybe not. I just snagged a few off the internet. These aren’t all my designs. I will definitely be adding more later. I already have some crazy ideas i...

A Rocking Horse for my grandson.

02-02-2010 04:41 AM by BigBob | 6 comments »

Hi everyone, I thought you all might like to see a project I made my for my 2 yr old grandson for Christmas. The plan was from one of the woodworking mags. I made MDF patterns and glued up my stock. I had a bunch of 8/4 red oak, so I used that for the horses body. Here is the main body. Next, I drilled the holes for the handles and eyes . The legs were pattern routed and all edges rounded over. I glued and screwed the legs to the body and then bunged the screw holes. The...
