Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK

09-15-2014 05:34 AM by MilFlyer | 0 comments »

Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK I’m putting this post together for any other military or DOD woodworkers that end up getting stationed out here at Osan AB in South Korea so they have some idea of what’s out there (and not) for them.First, there is NO woodshop on Osan. The closest locations are Yongsan (1.5hr drive) and Kunsan (3.0hr+ drive). They are shutting down Yongsan and will be eventually moving the woodworking shop to Camp Humphreys, but the timeline right now i...

Scrapwood Stool #1: Laminating a Seat

09-15-2014 05:02 AM by siavosh | 0 comments »

I had a bunch of cutoffs and leftover pieces from my last few projects. I didn’t want to throw them out or keep them around indefinitely under my couch, so I came up with the idea of laminating the pieces together to make the seat of a small (low-level) Japanese style stool. Here is some design inspiration I found online—simple and pragmatic design. And here is me working out the lamination: First time I’m making anything like this, glad to stat...

Why buy it when you can make it! #12: Dresser Rehab [Part 3] - We have drawers!

09-15-2014 03:20 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

When I set out to rehab this dresser, my wife and I agreed to use do it once and do it right. On her wish list for this project, was to make sure the drawers worked well. To meet that goal, I opted to tear out the old drawers, saving the fronts to be attached to new drawer boxes with full extension glides. Retro-fitting full extension glides was a lot more work than I expected. I had… Glue/nail in a few pieces of plywood to account for the 1.25 offset from the frace frame”...

Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench #3: Planning and slow starts

09-15-2014 12:16 AM by rhybeka | 3 comments »

I finally got back to working on this task and wanted to break it down into multiple steps that I could possibly handle getting it all cut before our first snow (and we’ll hope that isn’t until December but who knows in OH?). I’m a newbie woodworker though a few of the neighbors have seen my garage shop and think otherwise. I just smile and thank them for the compliment but tell them the learning process is far from over. So today I spent putting together circular saw ji...

Tweaks #1 #2: Tweaks to my Fremont Bed Done

09-14-2014 10:51 PM by Darrell Peart | 10 comments »

Several months ago I posted a proposed design change to the cap rail on my Fremont Bed. At the time, there was a mixed reaction to this. The bed has finally made it to the current spot on my schedule and is now ready to go the finisher. Seeing the bed in “real life” makes it easier to visualize the results. For an easy comparison lets start here with three images from my original post.On the left is the revision – on the right is the original detail While the original design...

Kids Workbench Build #7: Legs Done.. On To The End Caps..

09-14-2014 09:10 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

Today we finished up the back 2 splayed legs. Now we have a tiny bench like appliance in the shop that just needs some vises and a toolwell (along with stretchers and final assembly). Pic series for that part.. Then we started fitting the end caps so the wagon vise build can begin.. Then once the DT was cut I realized I had forgotten to add the filler strip to the bottom of the bench to make the skirt after the legs the same width as the e...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #7: Lower Cabinet Construction and Installation

09-14-2014 07:23 PM by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

With the old cabinets gone, it was time to build the new ones. Our plan includes ladder frames to help make leveling the cabinets easier. Also, the cabinet sides are cut 31 inches long which allows 6 sides per sheet of plywood. We had a little help shopping for the vinyl toe kick. :-) Gotta love those grandkids. Then it was time to build some boxes and set them in place. Everything turned out as planned. This cabinet has four small drawers and a dual trash can...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #6: Lower Cabinets Demo

09-14-2014 06:18 PM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

We were fortunate that the lower cabinets were easy to remove. A handful of screws later, and they were out. We saved the sink demo for last so it could be used until the very end. The old cabinets now have a new place to call home. Actually, they are in two new locations. A couple of the cabinets and counter top went to our nephew for his garage. The others went to our son in law’s mom’s house for her craft room. We were pleased that they could be used and kept out of the land...

Japanese Tools #4: More things happened this weekend.

09-14-2014 05:49 PM by CreekOne | 1 comment »

I have this Chouna, it was all black/brown and after about a day in citric acid and a lot of scrubbing every hour, I can now see the steel in some places, It also revealed a stamp and some faint etching that became stronger with time. I have also had the blades from my two Nagadai-ganna in citric acid to remove ages of rust.Anyone know anything about this stamp? The other one still in the acid…This one has stamps on the front and the back, both have stamps on the laminated chip br...
