Workshop construction from dream to reality. #6: coming together

07-20-2016 11:38 PM by DalyArcher | 0 comments »

Time for an update I suppose. My little buddy helped me strip forms a few days after the pour. The pour turned out great. No cracks or low spots. Not a polished finish, but I do intend to put a subfloor over top so I am not too fussed about the finish. After the pour I ordered the material for the walls and began sinking 3 1/2” ardox spikes with my trusty, yet seldom deployed framing hammer. In short order I had two large sections of wall framed and wandered over to ask the ...

Workbench Build #3: Top and Legs

07-20-2016 10:01 PM by Brian Gulotta | 3 comments »

Got the bench top glued up and am in the process of flattening and squaring it up for joinery. The saw bench got some more work today rough ripping the stock for the 4 legs. I’m ready to start laminating and dressing the legs. I found out my sons baseball glove makes a great knee pad ;)

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1748: Settling In

07-20-2016 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I sit here this morning, trying to decide what to write, I realize how much we have accomplished in the past several weeks. I hope that I am not being tiresome talking about our moving adventures, but for Keith, the kitties and myself, it has been a life consuming event for the past several months. Not only from the day nearly three weeks ago when we finally brought the cats (and the coffee pot) to our new place here, but it has been on our minds for many, many weeks before that. We had fi...

Chevy II; The Canadian Cousin #5: Repairing "Curvature of the Spine"

07-20-2016 02:53 AM by shipwright | 8 comments »

Chevy II is five years old now and has never missed a beat. It still cuts perfectly square with the adjusters in neutral position but the whole column has developed quite a curve to the right (as you sit on it). This may be because the column is too narrow but I suspect it has more to do with the poorly milled “urban wood” garry oak from which it was made.At any rate while working on the new plywood model last week I decided to replace the column on the old girl. A plywood column ...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #2: Part #2: Decisions, Decisions, and more Decisions

07-20-2016 02:24 AM by EarlS | 1 comment »

Great, now I know what I want to build AND I think it will be compatible with the style of other furnishings in the room. I have a picture, provided by Captain Skully, since I forgot to post one. Many thanks!! Before I go any further, I must give credit to Kevin Rodel for his design. I wish I could afford to buy his works, they are amazing. Thank you for providing the rest of us with such inspirational pieces to imitate. If this turns out well I might try reproducing the Glasgow desk...

Some jobs just need more space.” If you can’t read the box in the video that I am moving between totes. That is an older Avon soft sided cooler with built in radio. My wife bought that years ago thinking we’d use it. I have never had it out of the box…

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #3: Open up and say aaah

07-20-2016 02:07 AM by JayT | 4 comments »

With layout all marked up, it’s time to cut the opening. I did this with a sliding compound miter saw and the plane was designed to make that the best tool to use. If you don’t have a SCMS or are just more comfortable with a table saw and miter gauge or handsaws, no reason not to use them. For a miter saw, set the bevel to 20 degrees and the miter to 45 degrees. Hopefully you have a depth stop. If so, mark the proper distance up from the table on a piece of scrap and do som...

Hand Tools #3: Plane Till

07-20-2016 01:24 AM by rhybeka | 0 comments »

Had the chicken before the egg conversation with myself again yesterday, and in a fit of frustration of not having enough storage and needing a way to neatly store my planes, I bit the bullet and got started on my hand plane til. It was supposed to be my first foray into hand tool joinery but no. I decided in the essence of time and my need for storage it would just be a quick job with glue and kreg screws and I could redo it down the line when I could finish off a new til for the base of my...
