Well I found the time to do the final glue up of the top today. Man the top it getting heavy and difficult to manage on my own. I was just able to send the last couple of sections through the planer, on my own. For those of you doing a large glue up like this, you might want to get a second set of hands when you get to this stage. Here are the last couple of sections that will go through the planer. There are two large sections and 1 last board I needed to add to make it a full 24”...
Below are some pics of a tool box that I made a couple of years back. The wood is alder. This tool box was built to hold a large amount of electrical tools. One day when I was working on top of a high lift the box rolled off of the platform and droped about 10 feet onto a concreet floor. I expected to find it in pieces with 30 pounds of tools scattered about. What I found was an intact tool box with only a couple of cracks in the lid. Wow I thought, finger joints sure are strong. I sanded it ...
Have a great Easter Jocks and drive carefully. From down under where its nice and warm (whoops maybe I shouldn’t mention the weather).
I cut the tails this morning but chopping them out will have to wait for another day. Here is the pine dog bowl stand that I made for my previous dog, Molly. It was a big help to her as she got older and had a harder time getting around. We have since passed in down to Annie, Molly’s replacement. I hand cut those dovetails, just like Jersey will get in her single stand, except her’s is in cherry.
When my step daughter wanted to upgrade the fireplace mantle in her family room, we worked from a picture in a magazine she had, to come up with a design that was similar but would work in her room. We also added some crown molding and then repainted the room. Since all work was to be painted, we were able to fill screw holes and the saw kerfs we used to curve the crown molding. For filler we used Bondo, which while designed for the automotive industry, it is a great product for woodworker...
Adirondack Chair build how to - Betsy's version #10: Had to hurry up and get done - so here is the finished project
OK – the auction is coming up quick and they are supposed to be picking up my chairs this week so I had to hustle and get these done. I, therefore, did not take as I go pictures on the finish up. Sorry about that. But here is the finished project. I was not sure which picture of the 4 I liked best so I’ve put them all here so you can decide! And just FYI – yes my health is improving——but I must confess to pushing the limits a bit to getting the...
March 2008(written by MsDebbieP) Rick’s having a blast at building one of John's Extreme Birdhouses He’s been working on this Cape Cod house for a couple of weeks. Not much left to go – the roof and dormers and then mounting it to a post! You can see a closeup of the front at the ””bunnies project.
These are some built-in cabinets and a mantel that I did in a house I just finished trimming. These pics are from before the stone is on the fireplace. Hopefully in a couple weeks I will have professional shots of this entire house by John from Coastline Studios.It looks so much more grand with the stone, its probably my favorite projects so far! The cabinets are Maple plywood with poplar face frames and doors. The mantel is poplar also. They are sprayed with Graham Aquaborn Ceramic, f...
I just found a couple of cedar burls that have been drying in a barn for at least 50 years, one has only a couple of checks, the other has a few, the biger one is 27×17x10, the other is around 17×24x12 Im trying to figure out how to cut this stuff as it won’t fit in the band saw, Any suggestions?
My bridge project had some Lumber Jocks ask how I built it. This is the first time that I have ever tried to put something like this to paper. My original bridge is 36” wide with a base of 96 “and a rise of 18”. The most important part of building this project is making the template. There is a math formula for finding the radius to lay out the arch. It is R= D squared plus H squared divided by 2 H. R is the radius we are looking for. D is one half of the cord or base. H is the height of t...
