Lego Table #3: Hand Planing and Hand Sanding

2082 days ago by Eric | 6 comments »

On Saturday (the day after our baby was due, and he’s still not here!), my wonderful wife said, “Why don’t you go do some woodworking?” Since I was actually in the mood to tackle the next task on my Lego Table, I went for it! So the task of the day was to prep the table pieces for assembly. That meant planing and (some) sanding. The boards are in decent shape, being pretty much flat and square, so I only had to smooth them a little and take off the top layer to remo...

Interior & Drywall Update...

2082 days ago by FJPetruso | 3 comments »

Here’s a view of the front of the woodshop. The drywall is ALL up. But it needs another coat on the ceiling to smooth it out. . My neighbor Earl, a carpenter by trade, helped me put up a lot of the drywall. This window is where the woodworking bench will go. Right now it’s become a place for my wife & I to relax after doing an evening or day’s work on the shop or yard. Next is a view of the rear / entrance to the woodshop. Those two 5 gallon paint containers in the corner on the r...

2082 days ago by Gary | 1 comment »

I set everything up per the instructions, put some scrap wood in and after three attemps the two pieces now will fit togather with a little to much space just a few minor adjustments and I will have this figured out. Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read and post advise, you all helped give me the confidence to go ahead and give it a shot. At this point I am thrilled and headed back to the shop after supper to play some more.

A LumberJocks Journey (fictional) #2: the shop

2082 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

As I drove down the hill with my load of hard worked for logs, I realized that maybe what I was going to make wouldn’t work, or maybe I didn’t even like the idea. You see the way an artist should think is controversal. He or she must refrain from the obvious, if it sounds simple and good then it probably isn’t that good of art. I don’t like making furniture that can’t depict a story. It must speak to the user. In fact I prefer this over funtion in most cases...

Why I like Vintage Tools #8: The Finished Scroll Saw

2082 days ago by brianinpa | 19 comments »

Two weeks worth of work standing behind the wire brush, shaking and spraying paint, and it is now useable. It’s not completely finished yet, but it is close enough to it. The only things left to do are repainting the logo plate, finding or making a cap for the pump tube, and remake the model number plate. I also need to get the right size belt to fit properly (I think I am going with the link belt), but I put one on to make sure it works and it cuts fine. The motor i...
