Loft Bed (OP College Style) #1: Introduction...

1634 days ago by VeganThug | 2 comments »

about a year ago, i moved into a dorm room sized studio. i immediately began conjuring up thoughts of a loft bed to give me more space to set up a small computer building area. i haven’t tried a wood project since middle school (i’m a world saver, not a carpenter), but having someone else do it is not in the budget, plus it could end up poorly done. the only thing worse than buying/making a cheap piece of junk is buying/making an expensive piece of junk. after searching for i...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

1378 days ago by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Construction Grade Toys #2: Getting Started on the Dumptruck

979 days ago by sIKE | 2 comments »

The plans for the Dump Truck come from the July 2011 issue of Wood Magazine (just the Tractor Trailer) and from the April 1995 issue of Wood Magazine (the Dump truck). I will be using the Cab and Chassis from the Tractor Trailer and the Payload box from the dump truck plan. I got started with the chassis and the hoist support. Since the dump truck was a bit smaller scale I had to do a bit of and upsize the hoist support. The next challenge was the one inch notch in the hoist support. You c...

Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

932 days ago by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...

Black Friday Score

818 days ago by oldretiredjim | 2 comments »

It all started Tuesday before Tday. I finished using the dado on my table saw and was replacing the blade when I noticed a large amount of wobble in the blade. And it was the motor bearings. Because of the way I use the saw there was over 1/16” play at the edge of the blade both side to side and top and bottom. I’ll bet the fact that I use a wobble dado did it. Those things can’t be good for a direct drive saw. And when I discovered that I decided to go shopping and the first opport...

Shake-a-box kit: Handplane.

596 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Noticed that a few parts have been piling up in the shop, a base here, a frog there, a few handles piled up on the bench. I had an idea to take some of these parts, and build a “user” plane out of them. Lets see, have some frogs… But not the right style. both were Union frogs. I did have some handles to use.. I could paint the black one again… Had a few front knobs, as well Well two anyway. I could use the one with the chipped up base. needed s...

Cherry Nightstand #3: Raised Panels for the Sides

55 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

Rather arbitrarily I chose to make the side panels for the nightstand first. Actually it is only the second set of raised panels that I have done so I was kind of nervous and wanted to get them out of the way. For the rail and stiles I used “Sommerfeld’s Roundover Chip-Free Rail & Stile Set”. This rail & stile design eliminates chipping that is caused by a buildup of stress on the leading edges of the pattern. You can see in the pics below how the leading eadge i...

Broken machines

36 days ago by Chris11 | 2 comments »

I started my final project and the first thing I did was the sides. I had to glue up three pieces just for the right size I wanted. It was coming along great until both plainers broke. Now I have to wait a couple days to get our new one. Hopefully it comes soon so I can finish this early.
