Built-In Bed #12: Woodworkus Interruptus

01-08-2011 04:49 AM by Scott R. Turner | 2 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience. Work has resumed after a holiday break.) I came home from work tonight all set to get into the workshop and make some progress. But I found a note directing me to come speak with Madame President, who was next door sipping wine and gossiping with our neighbor. When I got there I was informed that Her Gloriousness was interested in dining out and seeing a movie....

Swiss Trip #3: Architecture at it's best

01-08-2011 03:58 AM by Roger Strautman | 9 comments »

After about half of the tour it hit me at how much different the architecture was in Switzerland than here in the good old USA. When I sat back and really thought about it Switzerland is around 500 years older than us and they shouldn’t be like us.

Concrete Countertop Series #10: Final Entry

01-08-2011 03:05 AM by Siegel_KenEvil | 3 comments »

This will be my final blog entry. I’ll post a finished project after applying calk and getting the plumbing done. The below image shows what it will look like but it’s not really plumbed. Need the finish to harden first. Since my last entry, I filled in the voids again with just a cement/water mix and sanded to 200 grit with and orbital sander. A little hand work was required in the corners. I then used a copper sulfate (root killer) / water mix for the color according...

Brides Heirloom Planes Restoration #1: Where we are now...

01-08-2011 01:35 AM by Maveric777 | 17 comments »

I wanted to take a little time to let everyone know where I am with my pair of hand planes I am restoring. I posted a while back about the Christmas gift I recieved from my Father In-Law (My Most Prized Christmas Gift). To make a long story short I was given two hand planes that belonged and where used by my brides Great Grandfather. I still get goose bumps about opening the box and seeing them for the first time. This is what I seen when I first opened the box…. One is a 10&#...

Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit #5: Final Cut

01-08-2011 12:32 AM by cut3times | 3 comments »

Well I honed the blade but did not put a secondary bevel on it yet. I am very pleased with its performance. With hardly any pressure I started this Rabbet on some hard wood scrap without scribing it first. The blade aligns perfect to the edge to follow the cutting edge making the cut a nice 90 degrees. I believe this plane is going to come in handy for cleaning up cuts. ThanksJerry

River Bend Windsor Chair Kit

01-07-2011 08:24 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 14 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Several months ago, my friends at the Woodwerks Supply in Ohio sent me one of their new River Bend Windsor Chair Kits. To be honest, I was just excited to be able to make a chair for my mom. I knew she would love the style and comfort of a Windsor and I have never even thought about making one. I thought the project would be similar to buying a piece of “furniture” from IKEA. A little glue, a few dowel...

great craigslist surprises.

01-07-2011 08:24 PM by joshtank | 4 comments »

so a few days ago i posted about a dust collector i saw on craigslist. despite having a relatively small shop space, i felt like getting one was a (literally) healthy move on my part, plus it’s something i can grow into with new tool purchases etc. and less time sweeping means more time for projects! anyway, i went to this guys house, got talking, and we settled on $150 for the DC with assorted ducts and gates etc. i mention i only have a few to...

Platform Bed #3: Continuing in SketchUp

01-07-2011 08:19 PM by R.A. Ray | 2 comments »

Apparently I’ve got the itch to get this thing well and designed, so I’ve spent a good bit of time since yesterday in SketchUp working out some details – mainly with the drawers. Attached are some more images that show where I’m at. The materials shown were chosen really quickly just to give the model some more texture and I added in a figure to give a better idea of scale. I hope the exploded view gives a clearer idea of the my next challenge, which is to figure ou...
