Kitchen Cabinets #3: Pantry shelves temporarily in place

10-16-2008 04:42 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

This should really probably go over at Home Refurbers, but I started this series here, so I’ll continue it. Amidst everything else, I got the pantry shelves (not really a pantry, but since that’s the function of these shelves, that’s what we’re calling them) finished. Still need to make the doors, but that can wait; at least we’ve got the huge unweildy particle board monstrosities that we bought from a store going out of business that were there temporarily out o...

Arched Bed #4: Temple of Templates

09-22-2009 06:05 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

Yeah well you’ve got to name it something. There are three arches in this project. I figured I could use the middle arch as a form for both the top (cap) arch and the bottom or inside arch. The plan was to make a template of the middle arch and matching bending forms for that part using a jigsaw for the rough cut and a flush trim bit to make the plywood uniform. So back to the second entry in this series. Calculating by both Sketchup and the Chord/Rise equation gave an outside radi...

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #3: Completed Assembly on tank and trailer

10-18-2012 01:38 PM by DigBaddy | 2 comments »

I am making really good progress on this project. Finished assembling and gluing the tank and trailer two nights ago. Last night I got a good start on the tractor. Once all are built, then it is on to paint. I have been very fortunate to have enough scrap wood to make this project. The only cost incurred has been the cost of the plans. Toymaker Press really puts out some nice toy plans.

The old time woodshop journals #37: Woodworkers thoughts by way of world works

12-06-2012 10:43 PM by jjw5858 | 2 comments »

The birch wood I rescued was fast sawn and put to work from hatchet to knives. I eagerly progressed through this grain I had been longing to find shaping my first spoon of this species hoping the sheer victory of acquiring it may lead to something new and improved. I have been trying to look at more classic spoon designs, and realized my quest has been interrupted due to my lack of taking enough wood away…lol. I guess my fears were discovered as I tossed through my tote of past creat...

For those who are interested, here’s a video covering the process of my first attempt at a weathered/antique paint look. I believe some people call this a “shabby chic” look?

Plane Restoration #3: Looking Sharp

03-26-2014 11:42 PM by bit101 | 2 comments »

Decided to go with the scary sharp method. Got some high grade wet/dry sandpaper and an angle jig. Started with 80 grit and worked on that for quite a long time. Got the main bevel down to a single plane and pretty much squared it up as well. The corners were worn down more than the center, so it’s not perfectly square still, still got a bit of a curve, I guess like a jack plane? But when I had it “good enough” I progressed up through 120, 320, 400, 600, 1000, 1500 and 20...
