After Thanksgiving

11-30-2009 02:13 PM by David Murray | 1 comment »

Well thanksgiving has come and gone and not a whole lot to show for my time off. I did however get maintenance done on my tools. Wife was out of town for a week visiting her parents in New york state, so I watched a little more college football than I should have. Between that and decorating the house and yard with Christmas decorations was all I felt like doing. I guess being a little lazy isn’t a bad thing, although I did help a friend out with some detail routing on a table he is mak...

Garden Gate III #2: Here's a nod to David Marks

11-30-2009 08:21 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

In his great series of woodworking shows there was one thing David did over and over that got some gentle teasing around the web. Can you tell which photo depicts this? Before I cut the mortises for the stiles and top/bottom rails I have to first make up the arch assembly. Through Sketchup I calculated that two boards cut on 12 degree angles would work. I’m still looking for a calculator, table, or formula that allows some what-if-ing of various dimensions to calculate various siz...

Workshop Improvement #3: Countertop, drawers, lathe

11-30-2009 02:33 AM by johngoes | 9 comments »

Saturday my brother came by and we shimmed and installed the cabinets. Then he helped me slice ‘n’ dice my soft maple boards for the counter top. It helps to have a 2nd hand when dealing with 10’ long 6/4 lumber. I had the lumber yard give me one straight edge and from that I cut width, jointed, and planed the boards. After he left I glued up the counter top as seen here: I also cut all my drawer sides and set up a 1/4” dado blade on the TS to cut the groves for...

Friday afternoon, I went to help a friend pickup some office furniture for his home office, since he’s starting his own business. When we pulled around to the loading dock, I noticed what appeared to be a bench next to the dumpsters there. I asked the guys working at the furniture place if it was trash (yes), and if they had any objection to me taking it (nope). Well, I had a pretty busy weekend, went Christmas tree cutting (family tradition), and we put up our exterior lights, so I ...

The Kitchen Project #1: The First Cabinet Door Attempt

11-30-2009 12:05 AM by End_Grain | 8 comments »

As you can see, my wife’s current kitchen cabinets are nothing to cluck about. They’re 35 years old, original. They were probably as ugly then as they are now. This is the final room that we haven’t remodeled yet. Everything is built into the house. The cabinets themselves are extremely stout. If I had the desire, I could do chin-ups off the shelving and they would not flex. This is my first raised panel door attempt. A lot of learning curve on the first. First tim...

Starting a new old arn project like I need another hole in my head. Craftsman – King Seeley 12” bandsaw, model# 103.24280, circa 1950s. Dirty but not much rust. I have removed the upper assembly to start the cleanup. I’ll post more as I go along. You can see some nice examples of refurbs of this model on OWWM.
