Homemade Tools #3: Attaching the leather

07-30-2008 05:11 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 13 comments »

Hi All, A question I received on attaching the leather to the face of the mallets. I thought I would pass it on. Q. Hi Lee; I saw you used contact cement for the leather-end-grain adhesion. I am not really familiar with it (I have read about the dry and press methods of application), but assume it does better against end grain? Have you had any problems w/ the leather peeling off, or are there other adhesives worth trying? (I had been considering cyanoacrylate, since I have ...

Moving shop #1: Denver bound

07-30-2008 02:49 PM by Dooley | 9 comments »

I’m leaving for Denver today, just for a few days, in order to look for a place to live. If we find something than we’re moving! I wanted to start a little blog about moving the shop. Mostly I’m hoping for some input from members who have moved a shop before. To crate or not to crate, that is the question for today. Anyway, I hope you all have tons of moving experience and will share your highs and lows. You can view pictures of the shop on my page so you know wh...

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #1: Designing A New Dresser for Our New Son

07-30-2008 02:34 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 9 comments »

A few months back, we learned that we were expecting our third child. My wife, the youngest of five kids, is adamant that this child have their very own crib and dresser. Who am I to argue? A couple weeks ago we learned it was a boy – so, I set off to design and build a “masculine” dresser. Inspiration My first step was to review some of my favorite projects on I’ve added references to these projects at the end of this post. They’re all exc...

Serving Tray #1: 1st Blog

07-30-2008 07:50 AM by Bigbuck | 5 comments »

I started this project because I needed something to keep me busy until I decided on my next big project. I got the initial idea of doing a serving tray from the summer contest, not because I thought I could win but because it would give me something to do and also allow me to challenge myself. The bottom is a glued up panel of soft maple with a 1/8” walnut inlay of walnut. I cut the inlay out using the router with a 1/8” bit held free hand cutting close to the line and then c...

Elevator Door? #1: Cherry Door

07-30-2008 07:24 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 42 comments »

Hi All; Recently a client wanted a door made for his condo. The strange part of that was the fact it was installed in front of an elevator door. Since the condo occupied the entire floor, the elevator opened up to his foyer and offered a view of a large part of his living space. Anybody riding in the elevator had a good look around. In addition, since he travels a lot, he didn’t want the maintenance guys to have unlimited access to his space. So we made him a Cherry door and fr...

In response to the many requests for information about how I do the routing on the signs, I will give a step by step below.When I get an order request the first thing I do is pick out or make a sign blank in the approximate size the customer requested, then I go to my computer. I have a program on on my computer that will print out banners, I use Print Shop. I can choose many styles of lettering and adjust the letters to any size that I need to fit on my board.

Cleaning Project progress

07-30-2008 02:52 AM by Rustic | 0 comments »

Well, I finally made some progress on getting my shop clean. I have quite a bit of wood for my fire pit. LOL I got the floor mostly cleaned up until I had to clean my shopvac filter. I got quite a bit cleaned, and at the same time getting organized. I spent most of the day in the shop. I am probably about a day away from totally clean. I am also going to replace 1 of my workbenches with the new one I got. I think I am going to cut the other bench down to use for my drill press and miter saw. ...

another mans trash contest... #4: recycling, in more ways than one

07-30-2008 02:34 AM by scottb | 5 comments »

After much deliberation, clearing out of old wood in various states of decomposition, and a 1/3 dozen birdhouses in various states of completion – not to mention looking at, drooling over and wondering how I could possibly compete with the other projects in the one man's junk contest I decided to dust off my Thorsen inspired table from last summers Popular Woodworking challenge. Sure I’ve got a creative birdhouse on the drawing table that might have a snowballs chance against one ...

Thanks for the warm welcome!

While not new to the web and certainly not new to turning lumber into sawdust, I only found this site a few weeks ago and decided to join. Wow over a dozen “welcome” messages in only a day or two…. I’m impressed with the camraderie here to say the least. Hopefully, I’ll become a useful addition to the site. There’s certainly plenty I can learn from the rest of you fine folks. A little about me.. I’m 55 yrs old, just recently out of work alo...

Building a Dream - my 1st real workshop #2: The Walls & Roof

07-30-2008 12:53 AM by Yettiman | 1 comment »

It’s been a while since I last updated the blog, but I ran out of time to sort out & upload the photos.Those of you who saw my last blog, will know that the ground gets a ‘little’ wet during bad weather.After the foundation went down, it was time to start on the base, because of the constant risk of flooding, I went for a raised base. A good dollop of muck, 18 concrete blocks and 5 6×3 later and I had at last started. It was beginning to feel ‘real’. Up till then i...
