Storage Shed Build #3: Framing

02-11-2018 06:23 PM by DaveFFMedic | 0 comments »

I ordered the lumber needed for my shed and had it delivered to the house. The two 6×6 runners for under the shed were a special order item because they are 20 feet long. I didn’t do the math on it before ordering, but they were HEAVY! I know there’s a lot of wood there, but the pressure treatment adds a lot of weight to the lumber. I had to devise a way to move the runners to the back yard by myself. I decided to use a hand truck and ratchet strap to attach wh...

Storage Shed Build #2: Dig, dig, dig

02-11-2018 06:02 PM by DaveFFMedic | 0 comments »

I surveyed the site for the new shed. I wanted it to be far enough from the fence to allow room to work and clean up fall leaves. I staked out the footprint and measured the elevation of the four corners with a liquid level I built from a coffee can and some clear tubing. There was a two foot difference in elevation from one corner to the opposite corner. Time to get digging. With a shovel and Maddox, I filled my wheelbarrow many, many times. I figure I moved about 10 yards of dir...

Storage Shed Build #1: It all starts with a plan

02-11-2018 05:24 PM by DaveFFMedic | 0 comments »

I began my project with the goal of creating a place to store my new riding lawnmower that would be built tough and have a finished style worthy of Instagram. I spent the cold, dark winter with a pencil and paper drawing the blueprints for the shed I wanted. It started with a survey of all the things I wanted to store in the shed. Then I figured out how big of a shed I needed to store those things, leaving room for future storage of items. I referenced building codes and created a 3...

Shop stuff #116: Modding pipe clamps with built in cauls.

02-11-2018 02:42 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

When doing glue ups, it’s always hard to manipulate the clamp, plus the cauls, plus keep everything aligned. This helps with that if you work in a shop alone. I made them a bit wider too so it helps the clamp with stability when on a bench too. An easy project from pieces I had around the shop. View on YouTube

Steam bent fishing net

02-10-2018 05:24 PM by TomGrin | 3 comments »

I use a PVC pipe for my steam box. I used to use a hot plate and a pressure cooker with a 3/4” hole drilled in the lid and a hose into the steam box. I found a wallpaper steamer at a yard sale and have set it up to steam into the PVC. I cut the strips into 1/8” x 6’ strips and steam them for four to six hours depending on the wood type. once I take them out of the steamer, I put them in the jig made out of plywood. I let the strips dry overnight. I cover the jig with ...

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 26 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...
