Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #2: Glue Ups

07-31-2009 06:06 PM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

Yesterday, I milled up four long, rough boards to 3/4”. The Robert Lang book uses thicker stock, but I had to get rid of the saw marks. I chopped them up a bit oversized to give me some leeway during the glue up. I arranged the boards for defects and grain to give me the best four sides out. I glued up one panel every two hours last night during dinner and a movie. This morning they’re all ready for the band saw. One thing I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a lot o...

Ohio Tool Company #5 Plane Restoration #1: Part 1

07-31-2009 05:46 PM by David Schmaus | 4 comments »

Well I never thought the day would come when I would actually blog about something. My thinking has been that it is to personal.. Anyways, I thought this might be a good time to start. A first project for me that I would like to document. My Ex and I have been divorced for 14 or so years.. I was over at her new house visiting my 17 year old son and his “new” garage/workshop. Yea 17 and he has his own space. 1 1/2 car detached with plenty of power and a heater.. I&...

Briefcase #1: The Idea

07-31-2009 04:20 PM by Chris Wright | 6 comments »

So, I decided to start an interesting project a few weeks ago and I thought I’d share my progress. I figured it would be neat to build a wood briefcase. Now, I know that in today’s business society people tend to use shoulder bags, “soft” briefcases or messenger bags to tote around their documents. But I figured, “what the hell, if anything it will be fun.” Like the majority of my projects, it all starts with a drawing. I planned the sides be a...

The loss of a Grandfather

07-31-2009 02:37 PM by Rustic | 18 comments »

Yesterday at about 11:00 am my Grandfather went to be with his Lord. He was 85. He suffered from throat cancer AND lung cancer. He had a full life. I went to Flint Last weekend to visit with him and he seemed fine. The Nurse last week had said 4 weeks and then on Mon said 2 weeks. So we have been preparing for this. All his children were in the house. He just slipped away in peace. We are all thankful for that. My greatest memory was growing up and one time in particular my family visited the...

Amazing Tools #6: The Bench SlideMount

07-31-2009 11:43 AM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I think I’m going to end up with several Bench SlideMounts. They’re exactly what I didn’t realize I’ve been looking for. I’ve been dragging my heels on a bad idea I’ve had to install T-tracks in my 8’x2’ work table, seen here almost 2 years ago when the garage was still nice and empty and traversable. I’d make a shelf below the bench to hold my smaller bench tools on squares of plywood, bringing each up as needed, sliding its bolts into...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #7: Stem and Knee - Part 2

07-31-2009 06:44 AM by MattD | 5 comments »

Greetings.. Things are moving along well with the boat construction. This part in the series is cutting out the stem and knee parts which form the front “backbone” of the boat. To do this, I created templates from 1/8” birch plywood and used those as patterns to cut the actual parts from 2” thick white oak. To get the shape of the templates, I used the same picking up method as I used when getting the shapes from the drawing to the actual molds in part 2. This in...

mesquite shelf #1: Turquois Inlay

07-31-2009 05:41 AM by Dooley | 3 comments »

I while ago I purchased some ebony from BlueStingRayBoots, and since he’s as cool as he is, I got a nice piece of mesquite thrown in. I pondered for quite some time as to what I was going to harvest from this great piece of wood. Well, I couldn’t bear to cut it! Instead I filled all the checks and worm holes with crushed turquoise and polished the entire slab into a nice shelf top. I’m looking to find a branch that would “Y” off into a great shelf support. I w...

addition to my home theater

07-31-2009 05:26 AM by akbar56 | 0 comments »

Akbar Cinemas (aka my living room) has two tier seating. The front row is a three seat couch and behind that is the platform (8 inches off the ground) with space for 2-3 extra seats. Right now there are two tv trays acting as a table behind the couch but the platform doesn’t have much table space. So the following idea dawned on me for a new sofa table.Here is the table closed: (the “gray” will more than likely be the same finish as the sides, I kept it gray to differ...
