Sgabello di Fossacesia #7: Shaping and Final Assembly - Almost Done.

09-11-2014 02:38 AM by Woodbridge | 9 comments »

I have been making good progress the last day or so finishing up the chair. Once I got past redoing the marquetry panel the momentum picked up. This will be the last update on the Sgabello di Fossacesia prior to posting the final project (hopefully early next week). The budget light boxes ordered from Amazon arrived yesterday and I’m looking forward to using them when I photograph the finished chair. We’ll see if it makes a difference compared to the halogen work lights t...

Small Shop Adventures #4: The quarter loft.

09-11-2014 01:42 AM by BrockF | 2 comments »

I was reading that the upper section of the garage walls right under where the roof joists meet the sidewalls is often wasted when it comes to storage. The article advised that building a wrap around shelf would amount to hundreds of square feet of storage space. Problem was all the plans I saw were very expensive and cumbersome looking without much strength…about 30 pound boxes max. I like the concept itself even though it is not practical in a smaller garage where the door tracks...

Current Project #8: Time for sanding

09-10-2014 11:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Yesterday I cut and applied the molding that covers the edges of the plywood. The molding is of a different wood (pine) and I think the contrast between the main parts and the edges when I stain it will look better than everything being just one shade. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! So today I sanded the legs, the side braces and started sanding the top. The top looks great, so I’m pretty ecstatic about the whole project now. I may yet get to start st...

New Shop building! #7: My take on clamp storage

09-10-2014 08:40 PM by JoeinGa | 7 comments »

Finally getting some stuff set up in the new shop. I retired from the workforce at the end of August (YEA, ME) and have been taking it easy so far (Gotta pace myself you know) I have been (slowly) unpacking the 11’ X 20’ storage area that I put up almost 13 months ago. Closed off about 1/2 of a 2-car carport and stuffed everything from my 30’ X 40’ shop that I brought down here from 10aSEE. It was simple plywood walls on 2X4 frames, put together with decking screws...

Dirt Cheap Sharpening

09-10-2014 08:10 PM by 12strings | 0 comments »

(Disclaimer: This is not for those who already have a good sharpening system. This is for those who want to get started without a large expense) This is a picture of End-grain shavings from walnut, taken from a 100-year old Stanley No. 5 jack plane on a shooting board. I sharpened that plane blade with nothing more than this Harbor Freight 4-sided diamond block ($13 on sale…see here: ). It only goes up to 60...
