Goat Stanchion #1: Ideation

02-03-2016 06:32 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

My honey for the last year or so trying her hand at raising goats. That has meant a lot of carpentry and electrical work for me: First converting an old chicken pen into a barn for the goats with divided rooms, second adding overhead heat and lighting (in progress). This past week my wife suggested, well asked, for us to look into making goat cheese. Well, to make goat cheese you need goat milk duh; to get goat milk you need to milk goats; to milk goats you need something to keep them st...

Harbor Freight No 33 Bench Plane review and tuneup

02-03-2016 04:50 PM by Marty Backe | 7 comments »

I was in Harbor Freight the other day and I came across their No 33 bench plane, whatever that is. But for $10 I thought, “what the hell, let’s see what can be done with it”. In this video I unbox it and then proceed to tune it up. About 2 hours later (spread over a couple of days) I had a plane that could take whisper thin shavings. It won’t be replacing my nicer planes, but I’ll be keeping it to plane the edges of plywood, MDF, etc., stuff I don’t want...

Miniature Bench #2: Legs with Feet and Mortises for Clamping to Main Workbench

02-03-2016 04:05 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

LEGS CONTINUED.. My next steps were to make the legs for this mini bench. I had already glued the two plywood sheets together. I also had my cherry hardwood parts ready. I used a marking knife to define the the grooves I would cut in order to fit the plywood stretchers. The grooves would be very shallow, but enough to align the stretchers. I used a DADO setup to cut the grooves. I used test pieces first to define the depth. When I was satisfied with the saw blade depth setting I cut...

Building the Spine Desk #1: Cutting and Gluing

02-03-2016 03:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

I’ve set out to build a desk that I saw online. In this case much of the work has been done for me because the website where the desk is sold actually lists the dimensions of the parts. That said, I’m making a few small changes. I’m not revealing my target until it’s done, so stick around to see where we end up. [Below] It’s just possible that this project could be made from a quarter sheet of plywood. I’m not sure yet, plus I’ve already violated ...

02-03-2016 07:29 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I had a request from No 2 Son to replicate the Box I made for his first daughter CaitlinSeems younger sister Emily spotted it and requested the same, I didn’t keep any records on how I did it and asked if I could get it back to copy it, this proved to be impossible due to the aproaching Birthday. So I set to work, working off a few pictures I took before. I was making great progress until I put the lid on. There seemed to be a problen with the grain. Wondering if ...
