Beads Box #2: Laminated Sides are Cut

1967 days ago by PurpLev | 4 comments »

So I’m very excited about this project as this is the first project that I’m using hardwoods on (everything prior was mainly plywood based except for face frames and other accents). So this weekend I had the chance to start working on this project, and start using my short-lumber-supply. I had my eye set on a piece of (what I thought was a) cherry that was just right in dimensions for the sides of this box. it was about 16” tall (to accommodate for the 12” tall box)...

Garage Re-Do #18: Super Sucker Completed

1967 days ago by MyOldGarage | 0 comments »

Whew! Last night I put the finishing touches on the new filter project for the dust collector. The biggest challenge was the bag and getting that all together. I emptied the old bag and contents into a huge 55 gallon contractor style (2mil thickness) garbage bag. When I went to put the system back together I just grabbed that bag and put it back together. There was a metal band around the old top filter, so I used that on the plastic bag and tightened it up. I anxiously flipped th...

Kitchen Cabinets #7: Whoops

1967 days ago by Dan Lyke | 0 comments »

With Yardbirds going out of business, I bought a bunch of stuff to run some new electrical (although even with the discount their wire was no cheaper than other sources, so I had to pick and choose), and in the process of picking conduit paths through the garage I cleaned out the shop. So yesterday I milled a whole bunch of wood into door frames. I’d picked up a bunch of eastern hard maple off of Craigslist, random sizes, about 5’; lengths, so I took the ones closest to my door...

random #7: The tiniest woodshop - resawing miniboards

1967 days ago by Gary Fixler | 18 comments »

I didn’t want to waste any time slabbing up some of the minilogs I cut out of the mystery branches I found last week, so Saturday I had a go at it. Very exciting. I had some split pieces, so I sanded them up on my belt sander. I like the faint grain revealed in the piece on the left, sanded down from one like that which I’m holding: I clamped my belt sander down to the table to use it as a mini (though relatively enormous) benchtop model: Here’s a long piece sanded ...

Wood IDs #2: A look inside the second mystery branch

1967 days ago by Gary Fixler | 2 comments »

It would seem Rob (user: socalwood) nailed another species down for me in my previous post – the Pride of Madeira – going off nothing more than one gnarled limb (which turned out to be the whole trunk and some branches of a small plant) and some withering leaves. Great job, Rob! I looked a bit more into one of the few branches of the second mystery species, and found a yellowy, eccentrically-ringed wood that seems to love to split along its length down its ring and ray lines. I...

Valances #2: Finishing Up

1967 days ago by DavidH | 1 comment »

Well, I finally got around to finishing up one of these. There wasn’t a whole lot left to do from where I left off last time. I planed the top down to just over 1/2” thick and cut it down to size and finished up the assembly: From Valances My miters were not perfect, so some wood epoxy and wood filler for the nail wholes did the trick. From Valances After giving everything a good sanding it was time for a few coats of paint, 3 coats of a spray on primer, 2 coats of whi...

Sewing Center #6

1967 days ago by robbi | 8 comments »

The biggest accomplishment I had this weekend was getting the two pedestals attached to the back and putting the apron in. No flubs this week…cuz I didn’t do much. The drawers still need a little work but I decided to give them a rest for a while and work on the rest (they look kind of crooked in this picture, but they really aren’t it’s the grain orientation that I screwed up on that makes them look like that….next weekend, feet and start on the doors I think....
