Greene & Greene Inspired Blanket Chest #1: Initial Design

1432 days ago by afnid | 2 comments »

I have been working on this for a couple of days and it isn’t done. I was thinking about building the nightstands from below, but since this is my first furniture piece, I would start with something a little more simple. Use your imagination to round all the edges/cloud-lifts. I just started laying it out in sketchup from scratch and tried to do things from memory from what I had seen instead of working directly off of a picture/plan. Not to say that it is all that original, but ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #458: The Calm Before the Storm

1082 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am still enjoying my little bit of self-imposed down time today. As promised (to myself) I intend to do some painting and work on some silly projects. I suppose you can call this my very short term sabbatical (if there is even such a thing) in order for me to regroup and plan out the busy months ahead. As I mentioned yesterday, it would be nearly impossible to keep up my usual pace without some clear time to replenish and rejuvenate. I want to use today to map out some goals and think ab...

"New DeWalt Planer?"

729 days ago by mikethetermite | 2 comments »

I’ve been looking for a Drum sander and a planer. I watch Christys Auctions on the web for tools. A few weeks ago I saw what looked like a DW 734 planer. I really wanted a DW 735 but it looked new and the price might be right. When I got to Christys it looked like it was brand new and it was on a nice homemade stand. I was able to buy it for $180.00. When I got it home to my surprise it was a DW 733 and made in 1997. Because of its age I took it apart to...

Turning #1: Argh!

462 days ago by ybotyawnoc | 2 comments »

How did I not notice this scratch until after sanding to 400 grit? >:(I guess this was an errant particle from the sandpaper or something. Right on the end-grain too.

Shop Pictures have arrived

2517 days ago by Bill | 2 comments »

Ok, after a long time I finally have some pictures of the shop where I work. Not the greatest pictures, but at least you can see what I have to work with. Yes, there are some other things in the shop. It is actually my Dad’s free standing shop, where he stores his tools, bikes, garden supplies, etc. But, at least it has a table saw!

Laundry Room in the Basement #1: Overall work flow/cabinets for laundry room

1815 days ago by bonhoffer | 2 comments »

Given our very small house, I am trying to design and build a laundry room that provides maximum efficiency and looks good enough to leave open. The vision is to have a handwashing/storage for our three children and a good laundry folding/storage area for the grownups. I am going to be building the cabinetry myself and looking for any ideas from the large-scale (you can’t put a sink there) to the smaller scale (you need a two inch toe kick in the bottom or don’t use bir...

Extremely Average #17: My Inconvenient Truth

1682 days ago by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

I am completely gassed. Today I completed the last cuts I need to put the top stretchers into the legs of my saw horses. The last major hurdle was to cut the feet into something more interesting looking than a rectangle. Krenov, who designed these, has the feet with pleasing angles and a cut out on the bottom. I had delusions of grandeur and considered doing something different, but I couldn’t come up with anything I like better than the Master’s design.My desire to improve at using h...
