Train Bed #5: The Finish

04-15-2009 01:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I’ve put the finish on the train bed. It is just the base color. The rest will be a vinyl similar to what the car wraps are made from. On the base I used a black lacquer undercoater and a flat black lacquer. I’ll do a little bit of assembly on it before it goes to the graphic people. Here are some pictures after the finish: For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us build this or see what we are doing live:

Garage Re-Do #21: Dust Collection Tidying Up

05-04-2009 03:44 PM by MyOldGarage | 4 comments »

So this weekend we finally got the dust collector over in the final spot. I was anticipating perhaps working on my son’s gun rack, but he had other plans this weekend . . . but I knew I was going to need to do something about the dust collector hoses. When I moved the dust collector over the other night I noticed that the inlet side of the chip collector happened to fall right between the furnace ducts – the supply and returns. This gave me a great idea about running the 4 inch...

Amazing Tools #1: Palax Power100S Firewood Processor

06-09-2009 11:15 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I come across some pretty amazing woodworking/woodprocessing tools online during my nightly research escapades – things I think the majority of the LJs crowd hasn’t seen (like me) – so I thought I’d make a little series to highlight some of the cooler, or rarer things I unearth. First up, one of the most convenient tools I’ve seen for processing entire trunks into firewood in a timely fashion. I have a bittersweet feeling when I see tools this efficient at h...

1 Year anniversary

07-21-2009 10:34 PM by Rustic | 11 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals, It is hard to believe that I have been here a year. It seems like longer sometimes. I have to say that this is the best woodworking site that I have seen ever. There are some extremely helpful people on this site. I consider everyone on here a great friend (even if we haven’t met). I have learned so much from everyone and enjoy looking at all the beautiful stuff everyone has made. I have also looked at my projects and noticed that I have progreesed very nicely. ...

Fireplace Construction #2: A little more progress

08-08-2009 07:20 PM by kcZ | 5 comments »

I devoted some more time to the fireplace project. Created the mantle. All pictures so far are unfinished, in fact, everything is just set into position. I am still trying to figure out how to secure this to the wall. I will likely also continue the wall behind the fireplace to the ceiling and mount the television to the wall. Lately I have been leaning towards a frame and panel type wall instead of painted drywall.

Workbench #7: Finish line is in sight!...Maybe. Are they ever completely finished?

09-15-2009 04:00 AM by KellyS | 3 comments »

I began working on the mortises in the top and had a complete relapse in talent. The first one was horrible. I used a drill guide I bought from Sears in hopes of everything being perpendicular and cleaner. Boy was I partially wrong. The first one came out horrible, but cleaned up so,so. I’m so glad this wasn’t one of the mortises in the base. I started trying to use a 1-1/2” fostner bit but eventually downsized to a 1-3/8” and chose to clean them up with a chisel. I was having a hard time sta...

I had another allergic reaction

09-30-2009 06:49 AM by Blake | 30 comments »

I haven’t been spending too much time in the shop ever since i finished the Jellyfish Table. I actually moved about 10 miles away from my shop so it is not as easy to “casually” do woodworking after work, after dinner, here and there on weekends, etc. My shop is on family property, so its not going anywhere. It takes me about 25 minutes to get there from where we are staying now. So I mostly go on a weekend day here and there. I have been up to the shop a few times to ...
