A journey into the workshop. #67: The flimsy shelves are GONE... And I HURT...

09-05-2010 04:44 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

Well, I managed to pull my stacks of old construction grade 2x material, and BORG S4S pine and oak out, not to mention the stacks of cedar, and other misc sawdust waiting to be made. I also yanked out probably a quarter of a yard of various plywood, pine, and other misc cutoffs… And when I finally got to the wall, I managed to pull what little remained of the material that was on them, and removed the bad shelving units (woo hoo!). I have taken the drill press, and band saw and mo...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #4: Other important details

09-05-2010 04:23 AM by jeff_wenz | 5 comments »

So some important details I have not mentioned yet. The routed groove: There is 2 ½” inches from the front of the case to the groove. The top of the groove bends in ½” Heat Shields:Use aluminum for protection. I purchased a 24×6” piece and cut it in half. I sprayed it with white epoxy appliance spray paint then mounted it with 3M’s Super 77 spray adhesive. Shelf:Install in coordination with your heat shields. This put my shelf 12” down from the top. Electrical...

Work(shop) in Progress #12: reorganizing Single Car Garage III - Give or Take a Few

09-05-2010 03:58 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Had some good progress on the garage reorganization, Although it may not look like it. To start, I wanted to tackle all the medium sized lumber that was now roaming around, scattered on the floor in various locations as it no longer had a dedicated place. I had 4 kitchen cabinets that I got off of craigslist a couple of years ago hoping it’ll help me get organized, but in the end, it just took wall space, and didn’t prove to be very useful, as it was just left as is, and ended ...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #2: Building a functional mock up

09-05-2010 02:01 AM by jeff_wenz | 0 comments »

So I know I need to work out the sliding mechanism. 3 goals here: 1. Make sure the components fit into the space I’m allocating for it.2. Ensure all the pieces work and it is easy to slide up and down.3. Make sure the ironing board is level in the down position. Here are all the components (minus the door which I will build as part of the Murphy bed complex). I built a wall (16” stud mockup) and starting assembling the pieces I had cut from my measurements in post #1...

Seattle Bungalow Fair

09-05-2010 12:12 AM by Crushgroovin | 2 comments »

I just signed up to volunteer at the Seattle Bungalow Fair later this month. I have never been to the fair but it looks great. Has anyone been or planning to go? How is the overall atmosphere? Is it a worthwhile “fair” to attend for a recent Greene & Greene/Arts & Crafts fanatic? Love to meet up with some other LJ’s who will be in attendance. -Chris May Your Cuts be Tear Out Free!!!

Small Turnings #1: Maple Dish

09-04-2010 08:18 PM by David Craig | 8 comments »

Good Afternoon all. Been awhile since I could get on here. Aside from my work schedule, my wife experienced the trauma of having to vacate her apartment due to a fire that broke out in a neighboring apartment. Building is shot with a few apartments totally decimated. Fortunately, hers was not destroyed and the majority of her things salvageable. I had to help her move her things into storage and she is staying with her folks until she finds a new place. Nobody was injured and all pets were...
