Router table reclaimation #1: Concept, design, and taredown

1963 days ago by RandyMarine | 3 comments »

Well, this is my way of getting my ideas out and get some solid advise. About 3 weeks ago my daughter, who is 2, tore the false fronts of her $60 Walmart dresser. This is just what I needed. I started thinking about building her a good dresser. However, to this point I have only built one project (my drafting table that I will post soon). As I started looking at designs for dressers, I discovered all called for dove tail joints. This revelation scared the crap out of me. So, I call...

Office #3: Dimensional Furniture #2

1964 days ago by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Well I was able to work much of the day yesterday and today on my desk. Yesterday got stuff cut down and prepared for assembly. did some part sanding. I decided to use miter cuts for the legs similiar to my assembly tables in my shop. I like the look better then butt joints. To cut the miters I used a great miter jig I picked up at a yardsale last year for $5, best dang $5 I have spent in a long time. Of course like almost all of my projects I used the Kreg Jig. I do like it maybe a li...

Tree IDs #7: Second mystery tree - Any ideas?

1964 days ago by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

These shots are from late February. I have several more since then backing up in my collection, so it’s time to roll out another mystery tree. I saw this one while paying a ticket at a Santa Monica, CA courthouse (missing front plate – whoops!). I love the swanky designs on its limbs. The leaves remind me a lot of Ficus benjamina (Benjamin fig/Weeping fig), but the trunk and limbs do not. Maybe a cultivar, or some other kind of ficus? Here are several photos, from this Flickr s...

Grave Marker for Old Rusty!

1964 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 12 comments »

The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...
