Bed #9: Bonus

05-23-2010 02:46 PM by tyskkvinna | 9 comments »

With my bed basically finished and moving day looming in hours rather than days, I had an idea and wanted to see if I could manage it in time. Having a strong idea of how to do it this time, it went super fast. I picked up scrap pieces, marked them all to length before I started and then had a field day with the saws. I will admit I was even so certain about my mathematics and cutting skills that I did not do a dry fit or anything. It wasn’t that particular.. Can you guess...

How I do inlays

05-23-2010 02:34 PM by tyskkvinna | 10 comments »

I had a lot of response on this subject, and finally got around to doing a blog discussing the entire process. So this is the machine that I use. It is a Haas SR-100 sheet router. This could be done with any CNC router/mill, really, this is just what I have. This is the tooling that I use – V-Cutters from Hersaf. I did a lot of research into v-cutters, because I do a lot of engraving. I was told by several people that Hersaf is the best. I have a set of them and I have to agre...

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #2: Springs in the platform

05-23-2010 08:30 AM by dakremer | 13 comments »

Installing the springs is almost complete. I am choosing to install coil springs that are all hand tied together. This method is called “8-way hand tied.” The benefit of this method is that it is stronger, it lasts way longer, and is more comfortable than sinuous springs. Sinuous springs (or “S” springs) is what most furniture companies use today. They do the job, but like most things these days, they aren’t made to last. They also save furniture companies ...

The Kerry-All Pouch is going to be on tv !!

05-23-2010 04:58 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...alas, only on local cable, but a good start.. Our local cable television company has a local interest tv ‘magazine’ show. They shot a video clip of the Kerry-All Pouches Friday at a local building supply dealer. This dealer has been instrumental in helping me launch the various versions of the Pouch, including the original Plywood Pouch, the long and narrow Trim Pouch as well as an 8-foot Drywall Pouch, or cover and a 12-foot model. They’ve tried prototypes and given m...

First stab at a small portable bandsaw mill

05-23-2010 03:42 AM by RichardH | 13 comments »

This is my first blog entry – up to now I’ve posted a few projects and thoroughly enjoyed all of your entries and great work. This weekend, I finally put one of my latest toys together. It is a small 24” chainsaw mill from Panther Pros I’ve never used an alaska type mill before, but I have seen a few related posts lately and keep thinking “Hey, I come across some pretty decent wood every now and then – woul...

Hocking Valley Corn Sheller Restoration #4: Mission Accomplished

05-23-2010 02:39 AM by wdkits1 | 11 comments »

When I first took on this project I had my doubts whether or not I could get it to work. After doing a bit of research and finding some good photos of the original corn sheller it was obvious to me that this was going to be a fun little project which would test many of my skills. The only thing that my client wanted was for me to make it functional but I did talk him into letting me do the original paint job as I thought would really add a lot to the over-all looks of the project. These are...

Miniature chair project

05-23-2010 12:12 AM by Stevinmarin | 20 comments »

I managed to complete my miniature chair. Unfortunately, this happened on the same week that my camera is out of town, so I finished the video using my son’s old “Small Wonder” camera. Yeah, it’s a small wonder that it works at all. So…SORRY ABOUT THE VIDEO QUALITY! The middle section is okay, because I shot that last weekend.
