More Clamps

08-04-2010 03:32 AM by canadianchips | 6 comments »

Why do these stores do this to us unsuspecting customers. I went into my local, cheap tool, place to find a grinding disc. I came out with 2 more 24” quick grip clamps, a diamond sharpening file, 4 power magnifying reading glasses, 70% OFF regular price. Most of the store yesterday was 70% OFF. Do these stores not know I am a weak customer, I buy things ON sale even if I don’t need them ? Hang a little red or yellow tag saying ON SALE and its like a magnet, just draws me in .I do...

Mikros Kosmos #18: Another tiny update

08-04-2010 02:10 AM by tyskkvinna | 5 comments »

Today I took off the tape holding the table to the wall, and a little bit of the wallpaper came with it! Ooops! Fortunately I was already kicking around a plan for what to do there. I had these little mirrors, and I was going to use one of them anyway. But I had already been kind of pondering how to make it look like it wasn’t an afterthought.. So this was just perfect. Unfortunately I didn’t think it through too much because I didn’t know what I was going to use for the...

Extremely Average #214: I Finished the Gauge

08-04-2010 12:59 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I finished the Router Table Fence Gauge today and did a few other things. I would say that it isn’t an especially entertaining post, but the pictures are nice. I got last night’s post up so late, I felt I should get tonight’s up early. Brian Now I am going to watch season II of ‘Flight of the Conchords’...they are “New Zealand’s ‘4th most popular Folk Parody Duo’” after all.

Short Shavings #4: A bird's eye spray job

08-03-2010 11:11 PM by Div | 9 comments »

Finishing is an essential part of building cabinets, but I view it as a necessary evil. Maybe I must change my outlook; they say if something can go wrong it will and that describes my relationship with finishing. I once had a large number of cabinet doors to spray. A spray booth is still a distant dream so sunny windless days and the lawn next to my shop is my version. It went well, I would spray a few doors, carry the ones in the beginning of the line back into the shop, spray some more,...

Base cabinets, island and counter tops

08-03-2010 10:28 PM by SteveC | 3 comments »

Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...

TV Entertainment Center #1: SketchUp, tablesaw sled, and making the front legs

08-03-2010 09:16 PM by Stevinmarin | 19 comments »

After a lot of help from LumberJocks, I was able to work my way through Google SketchUp and come up with an Art Deco inspired design. I can’t believe it took me the whole weekend to make the two front legs, but that’s as far as I got. I hope to get much further and maybe complete the unit this weekend.
