Model Equipment Trailer #1: Project for my Father inlaw

02-26-2011 11:33 PM by mwilkins | 1 comment »

I have decided to build a model equipment trailer for my Father In-law. He is always such a great help for me around the house with projects and I wanted to make something for him to show my thanks. Since he has a small excavation contracting business so I thought some wood models would be nice. I found the plans by D.B. Gatto and decided on the flatbed trailer and backhoe. I have started the trailer and hope to have it finished in a couple of weeks and then move on to the backhoe. The plan i...

Loft Bed #2: Finally finished the loft bed for my daughter!

02-26-2011 05:20 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 4 comments »

Well after way to long working on this bed I finally finished it and my daughter loves it. It probably would have been much simpler to just use smaller posts instead of glueing the three 2×6’s together and then cutting them down or to not have ripped all of the 2x material down so that…well they didn’t look like 2x material but I am really happy with the results. With the head and foot boards mortised, glued, and lagged together they are really strong. I notched ...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #8: Sauce Packet Bin - Part 2

02-26-2011 03:51 PM by TheGravedigger | 1 comment »

This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on Oct 10, 2010. When we left our bin, it was being overrun by a horde of shop cats (well, two anyway). Since that time, I added three dividers placed to give four pockets of varying sizes. The unit was then spackled, primed, and painted (yes, white). The bin, together with its pivot blocks, was worked into position. The gap was a little wider than I wanted, so I added a piece of 1/4” plywood as a shim on the le...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #268: Classes Are All Mapped Out

02-26-2011 03:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

To start off, I will say that I am in a far better position than I was yesterday. I made some phone calls and figured some things out and it is quite a relief to me to get things in order and lined up. I spoke with my friend Jeannie and got the answers to most of my questions regarding the extra classes that I am going to teach after the show. I immediately felt much of the anxiety draining away, and I am happy to say that I had a most productive day. It seems that I am going to be te...

I wonder if there is any interest?

02-26-2011 11:22 AM by BigTiny | 15 comments »

If enough of you are interested, I could do a blog on financial planning for the self employed wood worker. I was a self employed broker and financial planner until health problems forced me into early retirement. This will be basic planning only. Nothing complex or eccentric. Also, no personal situations will be covered and no personal advice given. There are legal reasons for this. In our overly litigious society, I’m sure you can all understand the reasons for my stance on th...

So you think you can go pro ? :) #7: Do what you love ( but please don't kill yourself to get there)

02-26-2011 07:56 AM by sawblade1 | 9 comments »

Good evening, As I write this blog I am dedicating it to my co worker Beverly who passed away Monday February 15 2011from cancer. Achieving Goals have been a given for mankind since the beginning of time, as humans we desire things that we work hard sometimes too hard to achieve. Maybe a new tool, truck, house, or a business, the list is endless but one thing we must remember is these are material things and are replaceable or can be attained at a later date.One thing about knowing Bev was...
