I want to build a bench seat that incorporates a shoe box below the seat and pigeon holes above the seat. I am curious to see if any of the jocks have created similar projects and what kind of feedback/ advice you have going forward. Talk Soon.

New Workshop #9: Braces complete & backing up for French Cleat System

10-20-2015 01:25 PM by Bermuda_Les | 4 comments »

Got the cross braces done and put up the plywood backing for the french cleat system to hold my most used tools. I plan on putting all my machines on rolling carts with drawers for storage which is why I haven’t come down further with the plywood. My rolling carts will go up against the wall between the braces. After this I started on the folding worktable as per April Wilkerson’s youtube video, and got it also complete. When I’m done, sometime this week I’ll ...

The results from my last blog entry are in and it looks like the next Alum cover art I will be burning is Dragonforce’s Inhuman Rampage. I’ve been busy lately with my own band having me as the guitarist and lead vocals and a keyboardest Matt Severance and drummer Garrett Toner. But our little three man group is coming along nicely. My next burning will be on maple and will be on the projects section in about a week. Comments, Ideas, requests, questions are welcome. Pat ...

Videos #2: or, Ruminating Over How To Cut the Hibiscus Branch in Oreoaration for Mounting

11-17-2015 08:16 AM by Mark Wilson | 4 comments »

This, the second video in the series, is about cutting the piece. Not very riveting, to be frank. But, it’s leading to something. A photo my niece shot last night while she was watching me make straight line curve, just for entertainment purposes.

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

New skill #1: Woodturning : first lesson, peppermill turning

04-19-2009 11:33 PM by loupitou06 | 4 comments »

Today I’ve attended a turning class at my local Woodcraft, the instructor : Charles, was an incredible source of knowledge and we covered much more than the “simple” peppermill we where supposed to. As a matter of fact this class got me, I thing, hooked to woodturning. I guess I’ll be searching the web for advises on selecting a lath :) Very soon a picture of the peppermill.

Rocking Horse Scarlet

01-04-2016 02:59 AM by Tony Slattery | 4 comments »

Scarlet is a little smaller, and is made from recycled maple, which once served as a bed. My preferred method of construction is to make template patterns using thin MDF and using a pattern cutting bit in a router mounted in a (home made) router table. I find templates are useful in many ways – it allows me to minimize waste by carefully arranging t...
