Tree house in a week

07-10-2009 03:07 PM by Attie Jonker | 4 comments »

I just finished my nephews Christmas gift and I am happy to say that it was very rewarding to see their big smiles on the day of completion. I have come to realize that doing something for other than money is so much more rewarding. It feels good to be creative I just wish I had more time to spend on the project. Thanks to my friends Bob and Matt for helping out. Attie check out the video of

I just realized going over my Sketchup, and my physical sketchbook, that I realized, I better get busy, and have a TON of budget to get through these projects… So far my big, need to do soon projects are… #1. Wide Drum sander. This has actually started. The disks for the drum are halfway done. (24 of 32 needed are cut out. I still need to come up with pulleys, rods, and pillow block bearings. This will be a simple pivot table lift mechanism , nothing too terribly fancy. The har...

My First Bandsaw Box #8: Step 7: Cut Out the Center of Your Drawer(s)

12-16-2010 08:14 PM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

This is one of the last deconstructive parts of the bandsaw box process before we begin the reassembly stages and start glueing everything back together! This step is another that might require a pencil, pen, or whatever your preferred marking method is… or not… maybe you just want to eyeball it. By all means, go ahead then! Just have a plan of action before you start. I went ahead and drew on my line with a pencil for the area of the drawer that I wanted to cut out:To get t...

My helpers and I got lots done this week on the addition.We put down the T&G flooring and set the 6” x 6” posts.Got the rest of the beams installed and closed- in the side wall, end wall and installed the rafters. I got the Onduro roofing installed on Thursday and we finished up the board and batten on Friday. .It was nice to have help toting, fetching and nailing but all these things ended when my helpers began their own adventure with a trip to China.....

Turning Segmented Platters

08-08-2011 11:29 PM by Steuss | 4 comments »

Shown here are several segmented platters I designed and turnied in my workshop. When I attempted to glue the parts, I found that it was impossible to do with standard band-clamps or pipe-clamps So I had to develop an entirely new clamp which I call the Surround-Clamp It worked great! I was thinking of putting it on the market, but the Bessey clamp people discouraged me. I still think it is a great idea and am now offering the plans to those interested by e-mail. Also, I have several ...

Going Back To College & Making Some Furniture

08-22-2011 08:27 PM by Michael J. Moore | 4 comments »

So I’ve decided to head back to school. It’s hard to believe that it was two kids ago since I last stepped foot into a class room. My major is Building Construction/Construction Management and I will be taking all the courses that make up the Cabinet Making Certificate as well since most of them fit into my electives. I had the privilege of attending the Furniture Making course at Salt Lake Community College for two days right before I dropped out for a few years. The course ju...

Workshop Update #1: Organizing Miter saw bench.

01-05-2012 03:17 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

Hello everyone, For Xmas one of my gifts was a new Dewalt 12” miter saw. This bad boy is alot bigger thant he cheapo Ryobi that I have which has served me well for 6 years now but the brake has gone. So I had to make a new drop down table for the Dewalt to fit. Fortunately the miter saw station I built hangs on cleats on the wall. Well it just so happens that on the right side I had to extend the cleat about 10 inches past the bench to catch the next stud in the wall. So it was real ...
