For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...
The first order of business is to clean up the ends and mill the blanks. Here, another jig comes into play. The polyurethane glue oozes out and bubbles on each end, so I load three pens (6 blanks) at a time into my little milling jig, clamp the package into my end vise, and go after them with my pen mill. Note that the pen mill is a cutting tool, and must occasionally be sharpened. I sharpen mine about every 25 or so pens … sometime more depending on the stock my blanks were made of....
In this video I show the process that I went through to make this dovetail gauge. I used Paul Sellers method to make it so he deserves all the credit. I hope you find it enjoyable.
I set myself the project of making a chair from a tree without the use of electricity or machine tools around a year and a half ago – and recorded some of my thoughts as I did so. Since joining LJs, I felt that others might like to read my ‘story’ of the non-electric chair. The story is still ongoing; additional video clips and images can also be found here A DAYDREAM, A TOOL CHEST AND A BLUE SHED I don’t remember which came first – the fantasy or the tool chest...
Had to take a timeout to make this router table extension. It’s a torsion box design with router lift and fence.
Here is the picture that should have gone with my last post. Took it this morning. I now have all the major boards up and have one coat of stain on everything. Also, I am keeping a full listing of pictures on my picasa site. The link is below. http://picasaweb.google.com/douglasheatherwilson/PergolaProject##
Here is a project I am designing and hopefully will soon be building. It is a conference table with some extra bells and whistles. The overall dimensions will be 150” x 54” x 30” There will be 5 power centers which will be raised into place with remote control linear actuators. The large power center will be 2 tier and have a projector mounter on a lazy susan so that the projector can be adjusted. The tops of all the power centers will be beveled so as to allow the power...
The third element to the show was the demonstrations and exhibitions. Here’s a couple of highlights. More photos and details @ the love of wood.
Hello All, I like to give an honest preview of my blog, and the realities are I just didn’t get any woodworking done today. I did write a blog piece, but it may not be of any interest to those who like my woodworking foibles. Still Optimistic http://su.pr/1GqweF I wrote a piece about Optimism on Tues, after some bad news, I am still happy. Brian
