Murphy Bed #10: Outside Cabinet Verticals, Headboard, & Header

04-24-2009 05:53 PM by Gene47 | 1 comment »

After a couple of days of mowing grass, moving all the plants out of the greenhouse/paint booth and cleaning up things I managed to get back in the shop and do some work today. After all the clean up I took the assembled frame and moved it to the cleaned out section that I have up front in the shop. I originally enclosed a 10×10 section with heavy plastic so LOML can bring her plants in to winter over. I then proceeded to cut the outer Cabinet Verticals, Headboard and Header Board ...

How I built my shop contruction begins #4: The finishing touch

04-24-2009 02:51 PM by wdkits1 | 7 comments »

My shop is now dried in and now it’s time to get the inside work done. I have installed all of the lighting, using 8’-2 tube fluorescents that I salvaged from a grocery store remodel and have put all the lights on motion sensors. All of the outlet circuits are in conduit run under the floor and are stubbed up where needed.The 200 amp service is installed and powered up with plenty of space for future needs. The lumber racks are done and the miter saw station is complete. I decid...

Boat Bed #1: The Plan

04-24-2009 02:20 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

I am about to start on a boat bed. This is one that I’ve built several times. This one is a little different. The customer doesn’t have room for the foot (Bow) of the bed so I am making it as a stand alone toybox that can be pushed up to the foot of the bed when they have room. Also the customer wanted to add portholes down the side. I’ll have 3 on each side. Instead of the trundle there will be three drawers. I will also build a 5 drawer chest and a 2 drawer nightsta...

Woodcraft in the Philipines #6: Trees, bamboo,palms and their uses

04-24-2009 07:23 AM by kiwi1969 | 4 comments »

The Philippines is finally moveing again after the holy week, Easter break. The entire nation simply shuts down over this period as everyone goes home to the provinces and attends a myriad of church services and spectacles. I still have yet to go to Pampanga to see the guys who litterally get nailled to crosses. Maybe next year. My original plan had been to end this series with a visit to a couple of nearby furniture stores and get some pictures and prices but that had to be put off so I will...

Building a new workbench #11: Project Completion: The tool trays are completed & installed

04-24-2009 05:42 AM by Loogie | 10 comments »

After several weeks of working on hanging doors, trim work and building a bathroom vanity I finally got a chance to finish up my workbench. One of the features that really attracted me to this workbench design in the first place was the reversible tool trays. I really don’t like the idea of having a big trough running down the middle of my bench, but being able to flip the trays over and have flat surface was very appealing. I decided to dovetail the trays rather than use the rabbet joi...

Clean shop

04-24-2009 04:10 AM by Rustic | 3 comments »

Hi All, Just thought that I would post an update. My shop is finally clean (as much as it could be). So, I have started working on a few things for the LumberJock Michigan picnic. I have decided to do something to commemorate the event. More to come later… God I am starting to sound like MsDebbie. Lord help us all. :-)

Furniture for the house #1: The new computer desk

04-24-2009 12:31 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I have been waiting for the american elm that I had in the kiln to dry for a couple of months now. All of it has finally been pulled out and is stacked in the shop ready to become my new computer desk, among other things. So far I have the design figured out, and have started with the drawers. I know this is a bit backwards to the norm, but I wanted to get all the handcut dovetails out of the way, since it would take the most time out of any other part of the project. So anyways, I planed ...
