Some past projects, #2: Bluebird houses

04-29-2015 12:26 AM by Silverhill | 0 comments »

For a while over the winter, it seemed like I was doomed to building bluebird houses forever. All of the ones that I made were copies of one in our back yard that has a proven track record. Last year it housed bluebirds through three cycles of eggs and babies. The entrance hole is not the correct size according to all that I read online, but I guess these Texas bluebirds have not been online looking at houses. Some of these photos are of my wife’s houses, her daughters, and a young f...

Some past projects, #1: Benches

04-28-2015 09:14 PM by Silverhill | 4 comments »

I just decided to take up wood working a little over a year ago due to health reasons. I could not continue with my past hobbies, so I decided to take up WW late in life. I know that I will never get the years of experience needed to accomplish what others do, but if I am having fun, so what? Fun is fun, at whatever level one is at. I work exclusively with pine or fir due to low cost and easy availability. I even use pocket hole screws, and pin nailers! My first project was a basic 5...

19 foot Offshore Power Dory Build #11: Closing up the decks, Getting the Rigging Ready.

04-28-2015 08:37 PM by English | 3 comments »

I am at 408 hours on this build and the boat weighs 1,237 lbs. I have been working on closing up the decks and getting everything ready to glass the topsides and paint. Progress seems slow but as I look over the pictures for this segment I see that a lot did get done. Conduits have been run to panel areas in the cabin. I installed two bilge pumps, one on each side of the keelson that separates the bilge area. Each pump is spliced into the power feeds using butt splices...

Shop Expansion #13: The Electrical Continued.

04-28-2015 03:59 PM by Blackie_ | 8 comments »

The building is now completely dried in, I completed the shingling of the roof today both side but due to the cool weather we are having this week, I’ll have to wait until the warm weather returns to calk the old shingles with Tar. The Gable end is complete with the upper pieces matching right back with minor cuts on the pieces, still needs a bit more paint and the trim work done. For the past few days we’ve been working on the wiring getting it all back in order, the sub pa...

Work station / Outfeed table

04-28-2015 02:13 PM by Gbluee | 0 comments »

I was in need of reorganizing my work space, so I started with finishing this fir bench that I had framed up a few years back to double it as a outfeed table. All the wood used was reclaimed, therefore at no cost. At this point I will move it to it’s new spot in my shop and match the table saw to the back left corner and line up for routing out Miter slide tracks in the top. The handles are made of Spalted Oak. You can see a video of the build here…
