Hello from the new guy

07-12-2012 08:26 AM by Ed | 3 comments »

I have always enjoyed DIY projects. Like making my own Powder Horn from a raw horn, things like that. My wife wants a nice Cutting board so I’m going to make her one instead of buying one. Much more satisfaction and you can get just what YOU want! I enjoy forums like this one because I can draw on the experiences of “Lumberjocks” and shorten my learning curve.I have really seen some great work here in the few days I’ve been here.Ed

Workshop Development #83: Not much time, but some...

01-30-2014 04:08 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Got the rough layer of mud sanded, found the low spots. Some were much larger than I had hoped. Reskimmed with fresh mud. The skimming was tight enough I doubt I will need to sand it at all… Just need to wait for this to dry then slap primer / paint on it again, call it done. Will probably get busy with the caulk gun tonight and get the door trim to wall gap closed up. Once this is said and done, paint the door trim, door, and wall, then we move the freezer in place. The wall a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1322: Reorganization: The Hell. The Glory.

05-23-2014 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Organization to me is like Pandora's box.  Once you begin one thing, it causes a 'domino effect' whereas you need to move on to the next (and the next, and the next.)  It all starts with a single idea. Then when that idea is implemented and completed, the overflow of that idea continues and grows like a cancer throughout your entire environment. I don't think that this is all bad. In fact, it is probably a good thing. For once you start to achieve successful org...

Small Shop Adventures #6: Organization Madness!

10-07-2014 01:32 AM by BrockF | 3 comments »

For reasons science is incapable of answering, tools don’t seem to be capable of hanging themselves up. I investigated big box tool hanging widgets and found it would end up costing me a bundle and likely not meet most of my tool needs. On the other hand, thanks to a good friend I have an abundant supply of 2×4 1/2 inch plywood sheets and pre-painted 3/4 cedar. I took a glance online at what others had done and decided to make a traditional tool wall for my hand tools. I woul...

exterior doors of Catalonia

02-03-2015 09:04 PM by harum | 3 comments »

We have been thinking about replacing the old entrance door. The door is really old and painted white. Besides, the door jambs, the threshold and sidelight show signs of wear and moisture damage; they are a bit out of square, the joints have become a bit loose too. This old door is sturdy and heavy and we want to replace it with something similar, that is, a stave core laminated door to withstand the sun, wind and water. While I learn how to build new door jambs, threshold, sidelight, a...

Beehive Handhold Cutting Jig #3: Dado Blade it is!

02-09-2015 01:11 AM by RoadHogg | 3 comments »

The shaper cutter was just not working out. The biggest issue was that is was just not big enough in diameter and therefore it wouldn’t go deep enough into the box side. So I checked things out with the dado blade in the SawStop. That worked 99% perfectly. I wish I’d have stuck with plan A to start with. The only issue is that yes, the dado blade “bottoms out” on the box side once the cut gets deeper than the height of the teeth. I can manage by making one revolu...

The Never Ending Bedroom Furniture Project #3: The Toils of Living in Germany

09-29-2007 11:21 AM by Muzhik | 3 comments »

Part 3: Build your own furniture and save money – pause – NOT! Am I the only one that convinced myself building my own furniture would save money? Maybe I knew all along that isn’t exactly true, but it helps convince the wife that it’s a good idea. Who’s with me? We all know from experience that this isn’t a cheap hobby. I usually spend more on wood alone – not to mention new tools – than it would cost to buy whatever I’m building. In the end, it’s about the...

Shop stuff #9: Blade cleaning

10-29-2015 07:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I was watching one of the You Tube channels I subscribe to and found a neat way to clean saw blades. It works very well and I had one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments. A great tip I got from the TabLeft Workshop channel that I tried.
