My kegerator build...the perfect merging of wood and beer brewing!

09-30-2015 03:30 PM by Holzarbeiterin | 3 comments »

This blog just gives a bit more information about the kegerator project I submitted to LJ. The woodworking part of the project is pretty simple. If someone wants more info about that just send me a note. I thought some of you might be interested in the “beer side” of this story. For other current or wannbe beer geeks out there here’s a bit more info about the beer brewing/dispensing side of the project. The thermostatI do not use the thermostat that came with the freezer. It isn’t poss...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #7: Hogging Out the Cavities

09-30-2015 09:31 AM by Dave G | 0 comments »

Hi all, I measured at least 10 times before making the cavity cuts. These need to be done before shaping so there is support for the tools – drill press and router. Before beginning the routs I had a little cleanup to do on the butt end of the through neck. The photo shows I back cut the tuner mount (this travel guitar is headless and has the tuner behind the bridge) to 20 degrees. This is so the tuners swing nominally level after tensioning the strings. If I didn’t ...

Shop stuff #1: preparing for a cabinet

09-30-2015 02:57 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The new shop is coming along. You may have seen the Spidey Box project I posted about. It is nice to work in, but still in disarray and needs some organizing. I am building a big storage unit and getting video of it. Just making it out of construction material, it has to be sturdy and yet look decent. Here is a photo of it part way through and a video of how I went about getting there. I have more footage of it and I am going to edit them into “bite sized” pieces and post th...

Screened Porch Corner Cupboard

09-29-2015 03:41 PM by redtail | 0 comments »

I had a few requests for more details on the corner cupboard so I thought I would post this series of photos I took during the project. As the pictures are installed into the blog it chopped off the right side. Sorry. The face frame and the doors are joined using pocket screws. The top is made using 1/2” plywood for a base and then applying the alternating pallet wood and barn board. I used the thickness planer to get both down to about 1/2” so that the total thickness of ...

My wife would like a new mirror in our bathroom over the vanity. She want’s better lighting so she can put her make-up on. I have an idea I want to use but, I’m not sure on the lighting issue. I’ve thought about putting can lights in the valance over the mirror. Will the lights get too hot in the valance encasement? Should I use low wattage lights such as LED’s? If I do, will the LED’s be sufficient lighting for her? Should I scrap the whole Idea and just ...
