Here is a time lapse video of the framing out of my bar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i53aI9oWdE I used a pocket hole jig to make most of the joints.
Well, today was the day where I got it together. It still needs mattress support, but I can bang that out in an hour. I had my dad, the girls’ “Papa,” help me out. Over the course of about two two-hour sessions we did a lot. We had to mark and drill for the dowel pins in the rail sections. I made a quick jig out of a piece of 1.5 inch x 3/4 inch maple scrap and two small pieces of scrap plywood. It matched the thickness of the rails sections and it had the plywood section...

I made this simple veneer press in preparation for a project. The veneer press is similar to a couple I saw posted here on L.J. I don’t have any spare room left in the garage so I wanted a veneer press that could be easily disassembled and stored away and would not take up any floor space.
Hi everyone! The reason I am writing this blog is because I am searching for a specific carpentry venue that would fit the criteria of my business, Generation Woodworks Inc. I am sure by now you know that my site gives a place for woodworkers to showcase and sell their products in a very affordable way with very little fees. I was contacted by a writer who noticed my website and wanted to write an article and pitch it magazines, but the problem is, she is having trouble finding a magazine ...
It’s getting to be that time of year. While I don’t mind sharing things here in my blog, there are some times when I simply can’t. I am working on some secret gift exchanges and I want them to be a surprise. It makes it hard though, as I kind of put myself out here every day and everyone sees what I am up to. If I don’t think ahead, I have little to talk about. Yesterday I attended a “Penny Sale” for the feral wharf cats in our area that live on ...
now that I have a solid design with detailed measurements and improved manufacturing processes I can make a new better catapult with less imperfections.
I posted earlier, asking a question about what worked to loosen old glue and remove a table leg without damage to the leg. Indirectly I found my own answer. Fornby’s paint remover. If you have any slit or space behind the old leg, Fornby’s will eventually loosen the joint and free the leg without damage to the leg itself. You have to pester the leg until it gives up, but it works. Now I just have to duplicate the leg clean out the old joint make the new tendon slightly bigger...
I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels from my wife for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.Pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the ...
I saw a post on LJ about making Lincoln Logs. I have two grandsons ages 5 and 7 and this looked like a great idea, not to mention a good woodworking project.I did pretty much what the post said. Link here but I came up with a different way of doing the cut offs for the logs. I mounted a guide to my cross cut sled. It worked out well. Here is the result, I am going to redo the gables.
