• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #11: Panel Risen

11-18-2017 10:06 PM by Ron Aylor | 24 comments »

Panel Risen –  To check my math one more time  I did a quick dry fit … I think it’s starting to look like a Prie Dieu!                 Now … time to start raising this panel. First I cut saw kerfs for the various steps in the profile …                 … then using a 1/8” chisel I removed waste to create the first step-down.                                 Readjusting the kerfing plane and repeating the process, I created two  step-downs. I used a bench plane to hog out most ...

Score!

11-18-2017 05:08 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

Picked up from Craigslist today in the FREE section: 15 hung ceiling recessed florescent lights. Four footers, four bulbs each. A guy took them out of a store he was hired to renovate. I already have some up in the shop. Put them up years ago. With the diffusers they provide great light. You can run them either two or four bulbs. I screw them to the ceiling and cut some strips of sanded 3/4” plywood and build a box right around them. These lights don’t hum or flicker as they&#...

Underway again...finally #10: Re-did the casters... very early end to the day

11-18-2017 05:02 PM by JohnTM | 2 comments »

I must be the klutziest, slowest to learn woodworker on this board. Re-mounted the casters. Had to do it twice because I went the easy way and just stuck another of those small square blocks beside the existing ones. Then, silly me, didn’t check it by spinning the caster 360 degrees and they didn’t go all the way around – just like yesterday (headsmack!!!)... Of course, I only caught my mistake AFTER removing and re-mounting a pair on one end and then moving to the other ...

LJ friends and gifts. #34: The postman left a note... - life is magic, or at least it feels like it!

11-18-2017 01:14 PM by mafe | 13 comments »

The postman left a note…life is magic, or at least it feels like it! Yep, another unexpected thing happening.Life is magic, or at least it feels like it! This is how the Copenhagen lakes look like, at this time of year, it’s winter now, had a cold summer, so everyone seems a wee low on energy at this time. So when I got a notice, that a pack arrived and I did not expect any… Well… I went fast to the post office, full of curiosity.Here I got this long slim pack...

Calculating angles on an X leg table

11-18-2017 06:06 AM by Rick_M | 4 comments »

I’m putting this here so the next time someone asks this question, I can find the information quickly. I have not tried these. Feel free to comment. Calculating the angles of an X leg table is deceptively complicated because the width of the legs or braces changes the angles. Here are some alternatives to calculating the angle: Tack the legs or braces together in an X and arrange them to the right angle. Make a mock up from cardboard or plywood Draw it full size on paper or pl...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #10: Together at last

11-18-2017 05:30 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Just a few finishing touches and wedges to put in for the woodwork to be finished, then the paper into the Shoji screens and another coat of finish. It has taken about 18 months to do but I am really happy with the way it came together, just as I imagined really.

Underway again...finally #9: Progress... seriously.

11-18-2017 03:27 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

You read that correctly. I made actual progress. (This is not fine furniture. It’s a workstation that will remain outdoors 24/7 and is made 99% from freebies [CL and pallet wood]..... It’s also the first real project I’ve ever done – since high school 45 years ago, at least.)Here’s the end of Day 1 pic as proof:No, it’s not screwed and glued together. Just placed it all in approximately the correct final places. So, here’s how the day went. First, ...

Home Made Woodworking Accents and Decorations #1: My First Mosaic Pin

11-18-2017 02:48 AM by Jerry | 18 comments »

After having recently paid $25.00 for a little 8” piece of mosaic pin that I used on my last box, I decided to start making my own. Here is my first one. It’s not epoxied up yet, but you can see the pattern pretty well. This piece is about a foot long and cost me about $10.00 to make.

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...
