Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #2: The Tops

03-16-2015 12:55 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

Well, the tops have taken longer than I anticipated. But it has turned out nice. The original Short Block V8 designed with a Torsten box top but I wanted a solid top. After lots of consideration I decided that I wanted the top to be Baltic Birch laminated on edge for the top. This would be consistent with the leg construction and would make for a very solid top. However this presented an issue as Baltic Birch is not cheap (best price here in Oregon, USA is $55.00 for a 5×5’ sheet...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1527: So Much Inspiration

04-01-2015 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I often feel as if I over use the word  "inspiration." It seems like every other day, I am inspired by something. I guess it is because after living a life of creating, we train ourselves to look at things differently than most people do. I can look at the sky and wonder which DecoArt Americana paint colors I would use if I were to paint it. I look at the architecture of an old building or an iron fence and think of ways I could replicate that pattern in a scroll saw project, a...

Mobile Planer Cart #1: Initial thoughts and design

08-11-2015 11:53 PM by dschlic1 | 3 comments »

I recently purchased off of Craigslist a barely used DeWalt DW735 thickness planner. The planer did not come with any type of stand or cart, so I will have to build one. My “workshop” is a two car garage which has two cars parked in it each and every night. So all of my tools must be on mobile carts and must also fit into a very limited space. So with that in mind, I started searching the Internet for ideas. I found the Woodsmith Mobile Planer Stand. This design has a lot of el...

Busy week

12-21-2007 05:32 AM by TheKingsTreasures | 3 comments »

Here it is Thursday evening and I think I will manage to finish all my orders before Christmas. I had 11 signs to do this week and today I did the last coat of Polyurathane on 8 of them. I still have to sand the two signs that were ordered without polyurathane and I can do that while I am here at work. They will be picked up in the morning. I need to attach the screw eyes and chains to the mule sign and all 8 of the others but will have to do that Sat. morning since I will be at work here for...
