Store bought furniture.

03-23-2009 08:09 AM by Gary | 2 comments »

I am wondering what do these guys do different from us. Say an item is made on the coast, it gets put in the back of a hot semi truck for a few days and shipped to the midwest. Now its unloaded either to a wharehouse or goes straight to an air conditioned store. Now someone buys it and moves it to their house and everyting looks fine. It seems as if the trip from the shop in my basement upstairs can make things go nuts sometimes. I guess what I am getting at is, am I missing a step somew...

random #10: Hooray for windy days in LA

03-23-2009 07:16 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

After a little get-together with friends last night around a backyard campfire in the ‘burbs of LA, and them hearing about how I’m collecting wood from wherever I can find it around here now, one of said friends left a message for me today. He was outside of an El Pollo Loco (Mexican fast food chicken place) that I frequent, and alerted me to ‘an entire tree’ that had fallen over in today’s crazy wind storms. I was over there in 10 minutes, new Irwin hand saw in ...

Tool thoughts #14: New fangled Bench

03-23-2009 06:03 AM by NedB | 4 comments »

Add me to the list of fans of the Jim White Newfangled workbench. I stopped at my local lumber yard today and picked up several 2×4x12’ boards. Then I headed up to Jim Capozzi’s shop where we dressed the boards and cut almost all of the major parts to size, I didn’t bring my 2×8 with me or I”m sure we’d have gotten ALL of the parts cut. I just looked at Ben’s bench blog, and realized I need to cut two more back bench support pieces, That’s n...

Footstools #5: Nearly there

03-23-2009 04:35 AM by Mark Gipson | 0 comments »

The salon footstool project is nearing completion, I am just waiting for the finish to cure for the recommended 72 hours before I deliver the footstools and finally trash the pink plastic items these will replace.I made stool 4 and 5 as the same as number 3 using a through mortice and tenon for the stretcher. My practise attempts at wedging the tenon were not very successful so I decided to leave that for another project. These stools will be used for resting the feet rather than standing on ...

Sewing Center #7

03-23-2009 03:30 AM by robbi | 2 comments »

I worked on this last weekend but didn’t post anything because all I got done were the feet. The plans to this thing are kind of lame. The legs are only two sided with a 15 degree bevel on them. I really had to just guess on everything, they gave you dimensions, but that was it, didn’t tell you about the bevels or anything, if you just did everything square, nothing fit, so I just tweeked it myself. I started on the doors last weekend too, but discovered I had a problem with...

Po mans dust collector

03-23-2009 12:15 AM by wdkits1 | 7 comments »

Back in 1993,I was just starting out creating intarsia and I had just gotten an order from Leichtung Workshops for 440 of my intarsia project kits. I could no longer work out of my little 8×10 shed behind my house so I made the decision to rent a space to set up shop. I found a building for rent for $350.00 a month so I moved everything into it and set up my production line. I had a Delta 14” bandsaw,Delta 6” jointer and Delta 12”planer plus a couple of router table...

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #3: Drywall Day - I Have Some Great Friends

03-22-2009 07:42 PM by Matt | 9 comments »

I planned the drywall installation for my shop on Saturday. Several of my friends agreed to come over and help me hang it. Since I had no experience with it, this was a blessing. The night before, 30 sheets of 1/2 and 5/8 inch drywall were delivered by a local lumber supplier. My plan was to get up and start rolling tools out of the shop and, hopefully, have an area we could work in by 9:00am. I got finished just in the nick of time. We managed to get 95% of the drywall hung, 60% ...
