Home Remodel Projects #1: Past couple projects

2272 days ago by Kevin | 4 comments »

OK, so I haven’t been doing a very good job of getting my projects up here. I’m afraid I cannot wow you with their beauty or their awe inspiring design such as many of you have posted. BUT!!! I am still proud of them and most importantly, the wife is happy. And when the wife is happy, the tools keep coming. My wife and I have done all the work ourselves. I have posted mostly finished project pics as I have no in progress pics. 1st is our bathroom in the basement: new til...

Where some of our ideas come from...

2273 days ago by scottb | 13 comments »

I did a little housekeeping yesterday – going along with the forum topic I posted. I pulled all of this out from under the bed: I was initially looking to unload some of the old copies of Wood. Maybe I need to thin the library a little more than that! My to do list is getting out of hand – in fact, I’ve decided it’s now a “just in case I run out of things to do list” – as I have a house full of started renovations to finish, so we can downsi...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #8: The Box is done, BUT!!

2273 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 6 comments »

I completed the box yesterday, but I’ve been struggling to get my camera to work. All of the light areas of an image have a pink tinge, & I can’t edit the pink out. I even tried taking pictures outside, but it was even worse. Here’s an out door picture, Blah!! Maybe someone has a cure for this disease. HELP!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~In the meantime I’d like to tell about my recent discovery. Barb has mult...

The Tool Gathering Odessy #8: I'm cleaning up!

2273 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 10 comments »

So. As of last night, I’m the proud owner of a #60 1/2 type block plane. I say type because instead of it saying Stanley, it says Norvell Shapleigh & Co. that dates it to around 1912 or so. But the pride of the weekend is my back saw. You remember this ugly and beat up thing, right? Well, it wasn’t pretty. I honestly have no idea what possessed me to even by that ugly thing. It’s really pretty scary, isn’t it. Well, I spent some quality time last wee...

Help!

2273 days ago by Pete Santos | 2 comments »

I recall seeing a very nifty cart built out of plywood for a pancake air compressor. It had the hose reel attached to it and a couple of shelves for air tools. I want to make one exactly like it but I cannot locate it again. The thing is I cannot recall if I saw it here on LJ or in a woodworking magazine somewhere. I searched all the magazines I own and it’s not there. It’s possible I saw it in another magazine that I looked in when I was visiting Woodcraft or while I was waiti...

Lumberjocks; the Community ,Creates an Memorial #3: The Project;

Finally I was able to get down to the actual building of the stained glass piece. The drawing had been completed and copies had been made of the cartoon so I could cut out the patterns which I would use to cut the glass. I also made a pattern which provides a guide for laying out the individual pieces of glass when cut and ground to size. The best way to describe this is to look at the pattern as the “template” or blueprint for the pieces of glass that will form the final piece. It is ...
