Out of the shop, and in to the yard...

08-26-2009 04:54 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

After several aborted attempts to manually dig out the stumps that came from the trees that Hurricane Ike blew over from the Bayou behind the house and through my fence, I finally found something that people I actually know have used with repeatable success… The product is called Bonide 272 Stump Out, and the instructions for application are actually quite straight forward. Step #1. Drill a 1” diameter hole 12” straight down into the stump. (1 hole for each 6” st...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #3: Some Assembly Required...

08-26-2009 09:22 AM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

Today, I took the rough parts and managed to achieve a few dry fits. The first one was to make sure the dadoes and tenons fit. The second one was to see how it looked with the bow cut out of the bottom piece and with the pre-finished panels installed. A couple of thoughts: be sure your table saw is waxed properly when cutting tenons like this. It helps if you don’t have to use force to push the piece through the saw. I realized I’m already using some of the stuff I learne...

General Rambling... #2: Happiness is a finished project...

08-26-2009 05:13 AM by John M | 4 comments »

I’m putting this entry in my General Rambling section because I don’t want to screw up the order of the Secret Compartment Toy Box series…. I know that only those who would be in a forum like this can truly understand the feeling of assembling a project that you’ve worked hard on to find that everything has come together just as you envisioned. Tonight that happened for me and my most ambitious project yet, the secret compartment toy box. Now, I know for some of...

My Workbench #4: Phase 1 Nearly Complete

08-26-2009 03:07 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Got a LOT done last night, including getting everything glued and trimmed up. Here’s a (slightly blurry) picture of the bench as it is now: The base is bolted together, but the top is not attached yet. Still, this sucker is heavy and sturdy! I don’t even have the bolts through the base tightened all that much, and it does not rock at all. As soon as I bolt the top to it, I expect it to survive a tactical nuke :D I need to glue some 1×4’s onto the bottom of...

Old Planes - Restore?

08-25-2009 08:27 PM by reggiek | 10 comments »

I was given these three very old planes and was wondering whether they are worthy of restoration? They are a bit rusty…some of the wooden handles need reglueing and finishing….and the blades need sharpening or replacing….There is no brand or markings on any of them other then “Made in USA” on the smaller one. Any ideas? and this one and the last one

router jigging: edge guide and mortise

08-25-2009 02:26 PM by AaronK | 5 comments »

So the next step in expanding my routing power is to get that thing banging out mortises – i like the idea of loose tenons, so I looked for a jig design with that flexibility built in. The router is by far the most accurate tool in my shop, much more so than my table saw, so that how i’ve been leaning. anyway, I looked at some jigs, most significantly the ones one these pages:

hand carved redwood bench #4: a smidgen of progress

08-25-2009 06:01 AM by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

Well we were able to put about 6 more hours into the bench project this weekend. The display cabinets have been consuming our free time, but I’ve decided to stop working on it at 5 and work from 5 to 8 on the bench. We still need to sand it all, screw it all together and shape the arm rests. It’s just sitting there and the mortises are what’s holding it together. I put the seat slats down onto it so I could test the comfort. I need to shape the front slat and radious al...
