Well after posting the little project I got a few questions on the design and interior so I made this to show you the steps I tookI don’t have photos of the actual work, (didn’t think to take them step by step) but I drew it up quick in SketchUp and took screen shots . Hope this helps and sorry for the confusion. Bob

Bed build #1: Catching up

07-16-2017 01:16 PM by Scout989 | 0 comments »

Okay, this is the first project I’m blogging, so please bear with me and drop me a line if you have suggestions for improvements. This is my second major build, and the first I plan to record at all. I am now building a California king bedframe for a couple friends of mine. I have no real idea what the style is called, but I’ve been mentally designating it “farmhouse style.” This bed is being built with poplar, as it was cheap enough that I could afford to replace ...

WoodChick #3: Pen #2 Explodes on the Lathe!

07-16-2017 02:27 AM by sfhipchick | 28 comments »

We have some lovely 11-ply pine plywood that we used to make my lathe table. With every piece we cut off, I’d stand and stare at how pretty the layers looked, and both of us agreed it would surely make a beautiful pen. So, we cut one of the pieces down to .75 x .75×5” and then went the extra step and stabilized it with Cactus Juice in our new vacuum chamber. That was our first time stabilizing wood so I was really excited to try turning this wood. That being said, I also k...

Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser #14: Back to work!

07-16-2017 01:30 AM by AlTriolo | 1 comment »

Hey lumber jocks, I think it’s been about 5 or 6 weeks since I’ve done any work on this build. Well, the drought ended today! While I feel like I accomplished much, there really aren’t many pix to show. Today I: 1) trimmed the back end of the keelson because the transom was not sitting squarely. 2) worked on leveling the frames (AGAIN). They went off with all the pulling for the sheer clamp work I did last month. 3) shaved the preliminary work done on the bottom of the...

Working with recycled timber #71: TAG fish tank stand

07-16-2017 12:49 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

I went looking for the fish tank stand my son Toby and I made in Aprill, (acknowledging assistance from his partner Gemma too), and could not find it so I thought I had better do a quick post before other LJs ask where it is. (see conclusion at the bottom as to why)The actual tank had a access cover and light fitted which he wanted replicated. He had a stand he wanted to rebuild, it was part MDF which had seen better days due to moisture damage. The old Stand The old cover We reus...

Simple box to hold candy #1: Joinery

07-15-2017 11:05 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a request to build a little box to hold/hide candy in….I had a plank planed down to about 7/16” thick..or so. 6” wide. Has a bit of figure to it.. Needed to get five parts out of it..Mitre saw to cut them out.. You were expecting a motor? Ok, the 5 parts needed.. A panel for the lid, an end a front and back and another end. Got out the usual suspects.. I use one combo square to set depths, another to do a knife line across. The mortise chisel is to ...

The Table #1: We've Come So Far...

07-15-2017 10:12 PM by 85GoCards | 0 comments »

Where to start on this sucker? I suppose the beginning is as good of a spot as any… Around six months ago, I said, “Wife, I shall craft you a table fit for a Queen.” Well actually, it was probably closer to, “Yeah, yeah, I said I’d make a table when I get a chance.” I don’t have my 3D modeling program at work, so I relied on my crafty Excel skills to sketch up a rough design for the table. Now as much as I like to fancy myself a woodworker, I...

Life #5: Lost a week. Thought I had a stroke.

07-15-2017 05:16 PM by Ocelot | 9 comments »

I woke last Friday morning (8 days ago) and found that I could not hold my phone nor button my pants. My left hand (with which, by the way, I am now typing) was completely numb. I had lost fine muscle control as well. So, as soon as my brother’s wife could get here to stay with the kids, we were off to the local hospital ER. I assumed that I had had a stroke, although now I know more about strokes, I wouldn’t guess that today. Only the hand – mostly the fingers R...

Floating Serpentine Shelf #8: Final Assembly and Installation

07-15-2017 02:45 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

Initially, I thought I could assemble the entire shelf in the garage, and that my wife and I could move it into the study. As my wife is happy to tease me, what in the world was I thinking? Weight-wise, it wouldn’t have been a problem. Size-wise, it’s theoretically possible, but totally impractical. We’d have dinged the frame of every door and cased opening along the path. So I did the final assembly in the study. Here’s the finished back panel with the shelf alignm...

Working with recycled timber #70: Fish Tank Stand the begining Pt 1

07-15-2017 08:57 AM by robscastle | 6 comments »

One of my family friends asked if I could make them a stand for their fish tank.Considering my son and I had made one just recently I agreed. They supplied a picture of what was needed and some dimensions. Basicly the structure has a cupboard in the center and two open shelves on the ends.Height 800mm width about 1450 for a top 1500 mm x 500mm. The tank holds 375 L so its effectively the same in mass or Kgs. So I checked out what timber I had and there was enough recycled timb...
