As I said before the colors chosen from this board match an existing set of cornhole boards and it looks great . The layout lines were invaluable and the Frogtape I used was awesome and it kept the lines true and straight and for the most part the colors didn’t bleed into each other… Next I will be painting a simple border around the back board and I will be painting the beer holder..
I didn’t get as much done as I thought I would today. I’m not sure why, but I think it had something to do with the sun, which made an unexpected, but welcome appearance. see below Ok, back to woodworking. I was trying (not very hard) to get my doors hung up today. I made a couple of moldings for the front face of the shed sides to attach them to. Instead of nailing on the moldings first and then doing the mortises I decided it would be a lot easier to do them in the shop, ...
Yesterday was a beautiful day. The perfect day to just take off and put the top down on the car and drive. The night before, we made the decision to take the day off. After the long and harsh winter, the idea of getting out in the sun sounded wonderful. It truly was. Both Keith and I are always busy. I think most people who own and run their own businesses are that way. There is a misconception that by owning your own business and being your own boss, you get lots of time to do what you ...
Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #1: And So I Begin: Starting on the Road to Woodworking
Short Intro – For more info see my profile and workshop I’m almost 50 and I’ve never really learned how to make anything. I’m beginning for change that.I have just a few tools and no workshop. I need to bootstrap my way into one. I will be using Sketchup for most of my planning and design. The Plan for the rest of 2015 Buy the best sliding double bevel saw I can afford.Overview of the saw and workstand: Youtube playlist: https://goo.gl/kAAyGz Design...
Overview Even with the boat painted, there are lots of little projects to complete to make it “operational.” One of those is to build a custom set of oars. I could buy a set for $46 at Gander Mountain, but that wouldn’t do! I purchased very helpful oar plans from Chesapeake Light Craft. The smallest length for which the plans provided measurements was 6’. I determined that 5’ oars were plenty for this low boat and decided to modify their plans to suit my ...
I liked the looks of this new Woodsmith plan, an image of their finished plan is shown below, so I purchased it. I got my tape measure out beforehand to measure my bedroom where this entertainment center will be placed. The old TV stand was the first large screen TV I purchased with my first large television set. The stand is ugly. I will give it away and I will dump the TV since it shows signs of dying. I am making the center cabinet first. I will add the two towers and the bridge be...
About a month ago, Nick Ferry announced a drawing to celebrate his first anniversary as a YouTube woodworking content provider (FerryTalk). He had lots of nice items from Kreg, Fast Cap, Bessey Tools, Matt Cremona and others.When the drawing was over, I was fortunate to receive a Remote Vacuum Control and a 2P-10 gluing kit, both from FastCap. I got the package yesterday around midday and by 1pm I was remotely controlling my shop-vac. This tool is going to save me a lot of steps around the...
Ok, started off with a Honey-do project. Tested out the repaired Makita Recipro sawzall, by cutting some MDO down to size. Worked real good. Ok, a little bit got done ON the peoject today, along with quite a lot of cussing….Trying to clamp up four pine boards to make a bottom….got a bit tricky.. I just knew that tool chest lid would come in handy…Got all the clamps tight, and set this thing aside for a day Hiding back in a corner??? Ok, I was going to use my ...
I have to say this project required a lot of layout work especially since I putting so many colors and a lot of measurements need to be taken because ….. There will be 42 1/2” holes made on the board because each side will go from 1-21 on the front board, also have to take into consideration that the acrylic numbers are 2” high and I want each dowel hole to be in the middle of each number. So I thought the best way to take all these aspects into consideration was to dr...
