My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #82: My "Other Shop" (Lots of pictures!)

08-24-2010 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

I knew it was going to be a great day yesterday. I could just tell from the beginning. Did you ever have days like that? After seeing that beautiful sky when the sun first came up, how could it NOT be a good day? Sometimes things are just like that. After mapping out my day here and writing my blog and getting all the stuff I needed to do around here, I headed to the bank to see if I could get an appointment and find out some things with my USA banking situation. I only expected to bo...

wooden winch #3: holes and bottom frame

08-24-2010 05:56 AM by moshel | 6 comments »

First, I drilled the holes for the handles, here it is with one 3/4” pipe in place (I don’t have two…): I also added screws to help with the shearing force. not sure if it was wise: another addition was more screws to hold the parts of the circle together, as i was afraid the edge will catch: now I could set my mind on the frame… first comes denailing. For those of you who never worked with recycled timber, here is a photo if a relatively easy to d...

Entertainment Center/Cabinet Built In #1: My Wife has put a challenge up for me.

08-24-2010 05:17 AM by docholladay | 12 comments »

OK folks. Who wouldn’t want to take on this deal? Recently, my wife and I went into Best Buy. I don’t remember what we went to get. Probably something for her phone or something like that. Anyway, llike any normal male sports fan, I was drawn toward the flat screen TV’s. I was looking at a 46” unit in particular when my wife says to me, “If you will build this cabinet system (incorporating a space for said TV), I will buy that TV for you.” First of a...

Dedicated 45 degree mitre sled #2: Rails and Fence

08-24-2010 05:15 AM by mnorusis | 4 comments »

This evening I finished up the mitre rails by counter-sinking 3 @ 3/4” screws into them from the bottom, making sure they were not protruding so they don’t scrape my mitre slots. After that, I ripped a strip of walnut into two long pieces about 30” long and 1 1/4” wide. These will be used for the 45 degree fence. Since I want to be able to run stop blocks on the fence, I put a t-slot down the middle on the router table. The t-slot bit I purchased only cuts the wi...

PROJECT # 25I purchased this block of of wood for a turning project, but at the time did not know what I would do with it. The block was very inexpensive- about $30.00. At the time it had a label on it but I took the label off and now I do not know what species of wood it is. Can you tell by looking? It is now in the first coat of finish, so almost done.

Extremely Average #231: Enlightenment

08-24-2010 03:18 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I just thought I would let you know that tonight’s post is up. It isn’t about woodworking though. I haven’t done a piece about Social Media in a month or so, and a few of my regular readers requested one. So I discuss Digg and will be checking out that site, to see if it helps my blog. Brian

Bedrails #1: Getting started.

08-24-2010 01:16 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

The Bee’s bunk bed needs some bed rails. I spent a few hours staring at the bed and scribbling little sketches, then another hour or so wandering around the hardware store and lumber yard buying stuff I probably don’t need, and have spent another nice while this afternoon getting started making the rails. First up, assemble these parts into slots to to fit these rails I cut all the wood to measure yesterday, which involved lots of running up and down from the ...

Car-boot sale treasures #2: Yorkshire tool gloat

08-24-2010 12:03 AM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

It’s not as if I don’t have planes, but confronted by these two (A Stanley #4 and a Record #5) yesterday at a local car boot sale (flea market?), what could I do but buy them? Especially when the vendor dropped the price before I’d even had chance to haggle. Five pounds for the two seemed more than reasonable. Seven dollars 75 cents is a rough conversion. The #5, especially, is somewhat knocked about, but think of the hours of pleasure I’ll get in resurrecting t...
