Pergola for the Yard #5: Erection Day

06-20-2016 08:21 PM by builtinbkyn | 9 comments »

Hmmm? Well at 56 that’s always a good thing. :) The best laid plans are never quite that. Had everything done and ready to erect the structure on Saturday and actually got started by drilling and anchoring the posts. What I didn’t plan on was a plumbing issue that needed to take precedence over the pergola. My wife accidentally forced flushed a rag down the bowl on the lower level. She was using it to clean something and then tossed it in the cleaning bucket full of soapy...

A journey into the workshop. #103: An unplanned fathers day gift for my father in law, starting my shop reorganization.

06-20-2016 03:32 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Okay the shop reorganization is NOT the gift for my father in law, but bear with me, this is kind of interesting… My father in law due to age, and the condition of his house, has been needing to be moved into somewhere that the extended family can more easily get to, and give him the assistance he needs in his everyday living. He’s 85 with somewhat limited mobility, and a failing memory. He simply can’t be trusted with a stove or oven any more, so we are always taking him...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1742: The Move is ON!

06-20-2016 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It is funny how something that has been a habit so long can fall out of being a habit so quickly. In the past couple of weeks, so many habits that I have acquired over time have been greatly altered. I expect it will be like that for the next few weeks, as we received the KEYS to our new place and are going to finally be able to start moving things there! How exciting this is for us!I am filled with a wide range of emotions right now. I go from being excited and happy to being completely over...

Compass Deck #5: Disappointment, Movement and Change

06-20-2016 09:42 AM by Nate Meadows | 9 comments »

So I started the deck in late June, early July. I came out on the first day of October, which was a chilly day and much to my dismay, this is what I found!!! When it is hot out, and the deck is soaking up the suns heat, there is no gab what so ever! But, when its cold, every seam pulls open. These two were/are the worst. Interestingly enough, the Trek Decking shrinks next to nothing compared to the Choice decking! I was/am disappointed in the Choice Decking Brand! A 1/4 inch lo...

Past and Present Projects #1: Picture slide show

06-19-2016 10:29 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...

Stack of walnut #2: Finishing problems and wood cracking

06-19-2016 06:28 PM by TeewinotWoodwork | 0 comments »

Had a little problem with my DO curing. After 5 days at 65-70 degrees and 12 hours in an 85 degree room I was still noticing a very small amount of wet oil on the sap wood. After doing some reading I took the table top out for some time in the sun. It was amazing the amount and speed with which oil started running out of the pores. These photos were taken after only 30 minutes in the sun, and only 65 degrees outside. Hopefully a day of sun exposure will finish curing/drawing out any remai...

Black wood eau de toilette.

06-19-2016 03:20 PM by Dutchy | 5 comments »

Normally we don’t do anything with mother or father’s day in our family. I was more than surprised that this morning I got a present from my wife. She said that after she had seen the name of the flavor she couldn’t resist to buy it. And I have to say that not only the name is nice. Also the flavor is pleasant.

Dust Collection nightmare #1: Helpful? Hint

06-19-2016 11:08 AM by curliejones | 2 comments »

We all know the difficulties of finding the right fittings and designing a system, but here’s a new wrinkle, for me, at least. I picked up a box with two different lengths of 1.5” I.D. pool hose included and the described fittings were missing. This salvage store sold it to me for $3.50. The hose was a perfect fit on 4 shop tools; a 12” Makita miter saw, a Harbor Freight Oscillating Spindle Sander, a Craftsman 4×24” belt sander (seldom used), and a DeWalt ROS. I ...
