Stopped by the burn pile a couple times this past week and cut away boards until my two batteries ran down (about an hour total). Spent a couple of hours this morning cleaning them up a bit. (Be careful that you get all the nails out & I did this time.) Left to right: Poplar, White Oak and Red Oak . . . The Poplar was somewhat of a mystery in the rough form at the burn pile. But there were some large, fairly clear pieces to be had. So I cut three or four out of the pile. Clea...
Just returned home from my hometown. Beside checking the construction progress, I selected and bought the roof tiles for 1,350 pieces @ MY3.40/piece (USD 0.91/piece). Here are some pictures that tell the progress :Pic #1Pic #2 Pic #3 Unloading the tilesThanks for viewing and comment.
Out of work logger gets bored and makes his own kitchen cabinets. This is how they turned out. what do you think?
Curved Panels - adding another dimension to woodworking. #4: Easy Does It - curved panels without a vacuum press
I couldn’t find any pictures to make this easier to demonstrate so I whipped up this: The object here is to demonstrate how a curved panel might be made without a vacuum press. A picture is supposed to be worth a 1,000 words so I’ll cut it short. The lighter-colored material in the center of the picture is supposed to be the end result. You will have to imagine that it is 2 or more layers of bender board (see #1 & 2 in the series). With this technique you will not w...
BLERG! I bought these last weekend, 6 days ago now, for $40. I tend to stock up on 50%-off items I really want in their continuous stream of sales, but while at the store to take advantage of a $15 coupon (>$50 purchase), I saw these. They weren’t on sale, but every 1/64” increment between 1/8” and 1/2”, and brad point as well? I Had to have them. I hadn’t seen them on sale (or I’ve forgotten) in the months (year?) that I’ve been scouring their sales,...
In a village near where I live resides what I believe could be considered the greatest collection of tools ever amassed by one person in a lifetime. This tool collection consists of both old and new hand tools as well as a complete collection of all the power tools one could find in any shop. This guy started collecting tools at the age of 13 and continued throughout his life. He made a good living as a helicopter pilot and spent all he made collecting. He died at an early age from can...
Doing cabinet doors?....Of course you are, your a woodworker. Well for those biggie one you better beef it up. Let’s do alittle mitered sticking. No, that’s not one of my dance moves, that’s the term for the jointery. So lace up those fancy tappin’ shoes and let’s get to it.
By popular demand. ;) So here’s the finished project with the first coat of stain. I made some modifications to the original plans one of which is the seat height. At 6’5” it is perfect for me, but about an 1” too tall for my wife who’s about 5’8”. The bench is very sturdy and relatively light weight since it is made out of redwood. I imagine it would be much heavier if I had used oak. Like I said before, this was a fun project and not too diffi...
