Today I ogee’d the drawer fronts and doors, applied aniline dye to some pieces and finished the kick up on the vanity, it’s going to have motion sensor lights in the bottom. The aniline dye looks funny now but It always looks great once the finish goes on.

Cranky Sailor Workshop - The retirement chest #7: More repairs and finally the sides

05-23-2011 09:37 PM by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

Remember that corner the router ate? Well that just wasn’t going to be allowed to stand. I had to use a chisel to cut back to a straight shoulder and find some ash of the right color and grain to cut another corner from. It’s pretty good. The first pictures show the patch slightly fat so I had material to flush sand: And now sanded and with finish on it: Here is that repaired splined miter post: Just oil sanding the sides now. Eight more days of WOOHOO!

Shop Improvements #10: Lumber Sorting, Workbench Shelf and Tablesaw DC Cabinet

01-10-2012 11:10 PM by wolflrv | 2 comments »

I’ve been working on several projects simultaneously. Finally hitting completion on a few and thought I’d post them. First off is finally getting the lumber pile sorted, so that I can tell if I have a piece that will work or not. I started with this. And after several days of sorting and donating to my brother-in-law’s firewood pile, I ended up with this. I can now go straight to the shelf, check stock, find the right piece and grab it! Next up was my side wo...

Wooden hand plane #1: Wooden Hand Plane

01-23-2012 06:03 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...

Sorry this is so longNow that all the electric is done, insulation, walls up and painted I can move onto the essentials.

Small time DC upgrade

I use a Rigid vacuum for my “dust collection” When the filters not clogged it works great for my saw and router table. However the when gets a little ircksom. Theres plenty of plans out there for different “Cyclones”, plus the tops you can buy just about everywhere, however this looks like the best option out there right now. I just picked up the trash can and 2 2.5” fittings to get started today. My favorite par...

Backwoods Ramblings #2: A splendid Saturday morning

06-29-2009 03:56 PM by Tony | 2 comments »

I did pause long enough to record this early morning view: THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!: There have been several reported sightings of a bear near my mom’s house, which is very near where I usually hike. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of it in the woods, but I didn...
