Barrister Book Case Tutorial #10: Building the Base

09-07-2009 02:34 PM by Scarcraig01 | 2 comments »

The project is coming right along, its really starting to take shape! I put the backs on, and built the bottom base this weekend. If anyone is interested in building a set, the plans came from I would offer to send the PDF of the plans to anyone that wants them but they’re on my old laptop that died. All I have is the paper set. If you decide to build them I hope the info in this blog helps. Nothing very interesting about the backs, the only thing worth mentio...

Torsion Box Assembly Table #4: Finishing the Box

12-12-2009 05:58 AM by Morton | 2 comments »

I put on both skins, the hardboard top and even picked out some rough-sawn cherry to finish the project! I created 3/4” plywood squares to just fit inside of the torsion grid. I placed a row of them in line with my front vice in order to have more depth for potential bench dogs (1/2” MDF + 3/4” Plywood). I also attached a double stack (1.5”) to the bottom skin, where the bench vice lag bolts will attach. This should give plenty of support for those pieces. I...

A friend and I went to a craft fair located in Hillboro Kansas. Both of us have our wares in a store in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas called Prairie PastTimes. Its a store that feaures all things handmade in the Flinthills. Well, she makes jewerly and I do scrolling. So we thought we would check out what the craft fair was making and what was selling. A little bit about the craftfair; it is probably one of the biggest in Kansas, don’t know that for sure. I haven’t read what th...

Turning Gasoline into Lumber #1: Before you have lumber, you need to make timber.

07-01-2013 12:12 PM by Rock Run Bushcraft | 2 comments »

Not all wood comes from the hardware store or sawmill, some wood comes from your front lawn. New Chainsaw. We are freeing the caught-up 80 foot white oak inclined tree that came down in a storm. We are endeavoring to bring it to the ground safely. One cut down. Almost to the ground now. After we get it fully to the ground and bucked then we will be slabbing it out with the ganberg alaskan sawmill. We get an average of three trees down a year in our wooded lot. T...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #8: A slow day but I am now officially working on hull 816!

07-18-2013 03:01 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I didn’t get much done today as I am feeling under the weather, have had for the last several days and just can’t seem to shake it. Shorty from PDR sent me my hull number today. I have half of the entire Manitoba fleet in my shop LOL!The other hull was registered in 2010 so it may not even be afloat any more. I’m probably going to head into Winnipeg this weekend so I don’t anticipate getting too much done. I still have to figure out a name.

This is my Second attempt at a blog about my adventures with my jobsite shop dogs. .. Good morning, ...... But Wait! Before I even get started, I have an important update: It was a sad day for Tyler. He was all brushed and ready to go but his play date with Athena was cancelled. Athena, a 1 1/2 yr. old Golden Retriever is Tyler’s Aunt. If You look, you can really see the family resemblance.
