New toys #1: New toys

12-12-2009 02:52 AM by Webb | 4 comments »

The thumb is healing nicely; still encased in protective armor but I have a doc appt on Monday so that should get removed then. The great thing about all this is the loml decided that we should go on a safely shtick in the workshop (I even tried talking her out of it in the name of fiscal prudence and the recession – no dice) – so now I also have a dust collector and a SawStop PCS on the way – looking forward to that. No projects or any fun activities to write about thoug...

Just a quick question????

12-12-2009 01:54 AM by Huckleberry | 6 comments »

As I am healing from this back deal,l and can do more, and not to mention the economy, I have been doing lots of computer work. I came across an add about making making bunk beds. The company is 1-800bunkbeds. I am curious (as I am one that would buy anything if a sales man looks my way what can I say I am weak when it comes to spending money.) has anyone tried this or known anyone who has or is doing this? I talked with the guy who “owns” the company and I have to say it is...

Just for Fun... #7: A word or two about sanding...

12-12-2009 01:29 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

Those who read Part #6 will recall that two days ago I left off here…I went into the shop yesterday set to begin making the panels for this, the latest small box. But it was one of those days, and we’ve all had them, where my ambition level was at a low ebb… I didn’t have unlimited time to work either, other things to do, you know? But I did see something within my reach, with the time I had, namely, Sanding... There, I’ve gone and said it!! After reading numerou...

A perl script for sizing Sawmill Creek style cutting boards

12-11-2009 09:51 PM by Llarian | 5 comments »

I’m lazy and like to use computers to do things for me, so I threw this together quickly. =) I wanted to make some Sawmill Creek style cutting boards, sized to fit in a medium flat rate box, and didn’t feel like doing the math. (Cutting board tutorial here: The length doesn’t matter, but you need to take into account kerf size and such when figuring how much wood you need to make these, and I made it calculate the blade offset...

Sketchup Models #6: Sketchup Challenge

12-11-2009 05:27 PM by spaids | 9 comments »

I’m no DaveR so this might not be that tough of a challenge. I had not done any sketchup in a while so I just wanted to keep myself sharp. This a quick little Christmas project that I cut out of scraps of 2×4’s. I didn’t event the idea but I did do my own little sketch to work with. You can find my project and the scanned sketch here.

Primitive Country Furniture

12-11-2009 04:37 PM by rseabrease | 12 comments »

My wife really likes primitive country style furniture and fixtures. This is great for me because in most cases these are made from modestly priced woods that are easy on the tools. The usual materials are pine or poplar and they are painted with typical “historical” colors. I am the first to admit that these items are best matched to my woodworking skills. Simple and forgiving. Paint will cover a multitude of sins and my wife likes the colors. So for me it is a win-win situation....
