kitchen cabinets #17: All cabinets are in.

09-06-2017 10:28 PM by MC | 1 comment »

I had a nice long five day weekend to devote to the kitchen project. I finished the last two cabinets and we scheduled to have measurements for the new countertop. Before installing the cabinets I built a box for the toe kick vent and added insulation. I like the separate base for this design, leveling the cabinets is much easier. I resawed 1/8” cherry veneers and laminated to the bases. Very excited to be done with the cases. Next weekend I will start on the d...

Workshop recovery (South LA Flood 2016) #13: Workshop complete

09-06-2017 05:53 PM by FreddieMac | 3 comments »

Well it has been a long two months, but I can say that final tool, the jointer, has been unboxed and placed in its proper location within the shop. Along with my new jointer, I decided to build my primary workbench out of some scraps I had laying around the house. It is a simple design made out of 2X4s, MDF and Hardboard. I put it together in about 2.5 hours. It is the proper height to be an outfeed table for my tablesaw, but I decided that I wanted to build a work corner for my...

The thing that irks me is that not 1 ea warning is posted on the product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Titebond wood glue will DISTROY metal. If you make a project and put something metal in it the acid inTitebond will eat at it for years. I built a case for a revolver and used titebond to glue all piecestogether, i put the revolver in the case and checked it one hourlater and a chemical reaction had allready started. I called titebond and they said this will hapen and use a different gluefor...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #29: Brass bridge templates and bevel gauge

09-05-2017 06:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

To badly mis-paraphrase a character from Babylon 5, “Zathras wants to have something nice.” A while ago I made a set of templates out of plastic for creating the arc that is on the top of violin and cello bridges. I was determined that eventually I would replace them with brass ones once I found a source for the brass. Well, eBay sells this 5-inch brass ruler that is an inch wide for less than $2 each… So I decided to start with a template for a full size viol...

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #1: Barn Workshop The Beginnings

09-05-2017 04:27 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

Three years ago my wife and I were gifted an acre of land to build a home upon. Included in this acre was this barn. It is a good sized barn at 40’ x 50’ with a hay loft upstairs that is massive and it already has a concrete floor on most of it. Now it has been a hot topic with in the family of what we should do with this barn. My wife’s grandmother hates it for one reason or another and feels it needs torn down. I on the other hand see all the potential within and ju...

From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) #4: An unwanted and unexpected delay

09-05-2017 03:48 PM by JohnTM | 5 comments »

A short story made even shorter… I was in a car accident – sprained and cut my right hand/forearm, seriously sprained one ankle and strained ligaments in the other knee. Kinda hard and probably unsafe to work near spinning metal objects for at least a week. I’ll be back working when I can lift a sheet of plywood by myself.

"Restoration": Jointer Plane -Sargent VBM 3422 (pre 1918)

09-05-2017 11:09 AM by Lalen | 1 comment »

I found this old plane at a friend of my parents’ shop whose husband had passed away. I don’t know much about planes but it looked pretty cool. I did a little research and learned that they stopped making this one about 1918 so it is at least 99 years old. Didn’t seem to be that valuable on the internet so I figured I’d tackle it myself for a first restoration. You might say I turned it around! I’d call this a functional restoration. Returned to working ...
