Yo whats up everybody so I got a call from my grand mother in Detroit and she asked me if I could make some crosses for her. My grand father is a priest in Detroit and she needed some for sunday school so I said ok how many you need and she was like 150 now it takes me about 5 minutes to make 2 crosses because I cut it in half. That includes cutting out the pattern and sanding it and staining it now I have already finished about 50 and they need them by September so I hurry up. I get about 3...

I was using my Delta bench top drill press and the chuck is a pressed on fitting. I cleaned up the conical shaft and the inside of the chuck to assure real clean… no oil or grease. Went back to drillin’ and i...

Fireplace Construction #2: A little more progress

08-08-2009 07:20 PM by kcZ | 5 comments »

I devoted some more time to the fireplace project. Created the mantle. All pictures so far are unfinished, in fact, everything is just set into position. I am still trying to figure out how to secure this to the wall. I will likely also continue the wall behind the fireplace to the ceiling and mount the television to the wall. Lately I have been leaning towards a frame and panel type wall instead of painted drywall.

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

08-07-2009 07:20 PM by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...
