Neighbors bathroom #4: Progress: Drawer Fronts

08-05-2010 05:28 AM by GregP | 3 comments »

Today I flush cut, sanded and chamfered the boxes, I also cut the drawer fronts out. It’s starting to look like something now. Will probably put some aniline dye on tomorrow and maybe make some drawers, There are eight so it will be somewhat tedious. My garage is getting pretty tight now, the pantry will probably be out of there soon though didn’t do a blog on it but will probably post it in completed projects pretty soon, I have to cut some granite and then I can install it. ...

Extremely Average #215: I Was Efficient Today

08-05-2010 05:25 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, Today’s blog was one of the longest I have ever written. I had a lot to share today, several good pictures. I don’t think there has been a day I have enjoyed, year to date, as much as I enjoyed today’s time in the shop. Brian

Not quite in the workshop... #22: Been gone a while, not much, but some done...

08-05-2010 03:44 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

Okay so it is REALLY hard for a guy with a wok shop in League City Texas to work on his shop when he is in Dallas Texas and in various points in Oregon, you see, I have been out for the last 2 weeks… But all is good. I got back from Portland last night at about 10:00, got my full work day in, and even managed to get at least ONE thing done for my shop, well indirectly for my shop. After coming home from work, taking the wife out to dinner (nothing left in the fridge to cook) I gave t...

Random shop notes #3: Now I know.

08-05-2010 02:36 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

That I can afford to get the electrical work I want done. Gonna run me about $350-400 bucks. And we set the date to move the table saw in – it’ll be arriving on Monday the 9th, and needs a whomp-load of work. It’s an old Delta/Rockwell 10” Homecraft, and is showing it’s age. I’ll have to wait until I get it in the shop to see how much re-furb it needs. I’ve just barely got room for this machine – it’s going to have to go on ca...

It Works. I can attest to it. Cleaning saw blades, router bits, files and sanding belts.

08-05-2010 02:03 AM by Karson | 20 comments »

Yesterday, I posted a blog on a failure Today I thought I post a blog on a success. I’ve used this product before on cleaning saw blades. Yesterday I was walking around a Black & Decker outlet store in Delaware and I ran across these brass brushes 3 for $1.00 so I picked up three. When I got to the checkout the guy asked if I would want another 6 for another $1.00 so I bought those. I thought I’d use them for cleaning out my files and then later I thought about cl...

My first simple box #3: smallish update

08-05-2010 01:39 AM by Benighted | 2 comments »

Well, haven’t had a lot of time for my little box the last days but got a hour or so today rough-planing the miters and selecting and planing the exact piece of the maple I wanted to use for the top. And I think you guy’s who voted did the right selection, looks real good now that the wood is planed and the figure starts to show… The wood is just straight maple but I selected a piece which one end had a quite large branch going through the wood as I hoped it would have so...

Random shop notes #2: Other people working.

08-04-2010 11:22 PM by AnnaEA | 0 comments »

Today’s been a day of other people working—I had a guy from the community maintenance staff looking at my down spouts, and there will be an electrician coming in a couple of hours to give me an estimate of what it’ll cost to run a couple of dedicated circuits for my shop and tell me if I need a sub panel or not. That’s right – my 84 square foot patch of the basement is going to get all gussied up with some dedicated circuits! One for lighting and charging un...

Apothecary Cabinet.. #1: Where have I been?

08-04-2010 11:07 PM by degoose | 33 comments »

Well I have been busy with a new project that was commissioned a few years ago… I have been putting it off because of the sheer immensity of the project…even though it is small in size the amount of production work is daunting… The new project is a 35 drawer Apothecary Cabinet... I am thinking that the main carcass will be New Guinea Rosewood.. as will the drawer fronts…. the sides and backs of the drawers will be Hoop Pine.... To give you and idea I have taken...

Secondary Workbench #4: Completing

08-04-2010 10:53 PM by yuri | 4 comments »

I finally completed my bench. My final steps.Last weekend we had great weather and I could not resist to do some work outside. Inside is crowded and circular saw produces a lot of uncontrolled dust and I planed to produce finishing. Here you clearly see that I actually make use of scrap material, so no trips to buy and reducing clutter in my garage. Win-win situation! Preparation for cutting edges of bench top. You see shop made cutting guide, probably everybody makes one for circular saw....
