Hang your bananas with style. Made this banana hanger yesterday for a Christmas gift. A suggestion was also made that this would hold headphones nicely, this coming from a music creator. Only tools needed were a jig saw, router, and a drill. You can watch the video HERE.
I have my little desk set now: the Plans Box, the Little box, and the Pencil Holder Box and I’ve tried different things on each and here’s what I’ve come up with: 1. the plan box with the plain edges with rabbit cuts is nice and clean looking on the front. I like that. 2. the little box with its uneven box joints is rustic looking and as Dick stated – “antique-ish”. 3. I took the first box, however, and rounded the corners to see what that would lo...
Art-Full Wood Rats ....and so today i am going straight for the soul of the word and writing as one can when they are expelling multi-words ‘off the cuff’ of their heart…. Yes, there are times more often then not, when I will write and milk the word to get at the heart of it’s meaning and then while sitting here waiting for a heady froth, I will go for a twist in the meaning to see if I can get outside the box and examine the art-full word in a new way of meaning...
I haven’t posted here in a while but we have been busy. Christmas was a really busy time, we had a lot of sign orders for gifts. Now that the weather is nicer we have been getting out a lot more projects and coming up with more ideas. The orders are coming in, just enough to keep us busy but not stressed. I am enjoying the challenge. When the orders stop I have some ideas of my own that I would like to try. I look forward to this summer and all the summer time projects.
For those who follow along at the Wood Whisperer Blog, Marc Spagnuolo has featured one of my latest projects as his featured Project of the Week. This is a Krenov-inspired chest on stand I built mostly out of offcuts I purchased at Weiss Hardwoods in Largo, Florida. I wanted the base to have a little movement and grace, so I cut the rails and stretchers with a curve in them. Both the front and back curves have identical arcs – as do the two sides. The chest is made of maple and i...
After my screwup with the pine legs, and the fact that pine 4×4s are a royal pain in the butt to find in Houston, I opted for a trip to Lowes to grab a couple of Aromatic red cedar 4×4s. Their so called “select” which I guess is supposedly select grade, but knottier than I would expect. So I get home with the 4×4s and notice that they are, well actually 4×4, and my plans call for nominal size lumber (3.5×3.5), so it was off to the jointer, and planer to...
Always wanted a dedicated chamfer plane, but surely not going to get a stanley or a ridiculously price one forsomething you dont used often.So i had this old smoother in need of a new sole ,the plane you put awayand never use, the one that you will re-sole when the time is right. That said, i mark 2 45% on the bottom to make a perfect 90%, cut trimmed, cleaned and waxed,And now i have dedicated chamfer plane!!!Its working really well for me, much better then a wobbly block plane, and once ...
So I moved about a month ago into my first home with a real garage. The two car garage is all mine, no cars allowed! Very exciting.Anyway, I have lots of cabinet space, which is great, but not much wall room. Since I only have one wall, to hang things on, I have to make it count. That one wall just happens to be 14 feet tall so I want to use every bit of it.At my last place, I had to keep a lot of my wood outdoors so I wanted to build an indoor rack this time. This one that I built is a ...
Hello. At this point in time I have the workbench finished, but this post will be about the base. I will make a video going over the completed bench and then post my last blog entry of the bench. Shortly after the last blog post I bought the last portion of wood I needed for the bench. The first piece I worked on was for the underside of the bench top. I made a piece 4 1/2” wide and about 1 1/2” thick to glue to the back edge of the top to make the edge the same thickness as th...
