Shop Renovation #1: Shop Renovation #1

09-03-2010 02:27 AM by Lenny | 28 comments »

Hi everyone. Just over a month ago I wrote that I retired from work and mentioned that the timing coincided with the start of a shop renovation project. Here is the post, “Benchmark: At the time, the foundation walls had been poured. A lot has taken place over the past month but not on the shop. Our contractor is building a mud room at the front of our house in addition to this shop renovation and he decided to work on the mud room first. He...

Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit #7: finish/ delivery/ installation

09-15-2010 01:32 PM by rando1 | 0 comments »

The past few days have been wonderful for finishing! Not as humid right now, thank goodness! In the process of the finish we first did a once over with sand up to 220, filled nail holes and then applied general finishes whitewash stain. Wiping off the excess allowed a lite look and a little grain to show. After this dried I went over the unit with 320 to create “rough or worn areas on edges and around details. Next, we wiped minwax puritan pine with toner added…...Yeah, wha...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #118: Yesterday is Gone (Good!)

09-29-2010 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday was a day that I could have done without. It started out fine and everything was going according to plan until about 10am. I received an email from a customer saying that he couldn’t get to my website. The previous day, Steve Good (who hosts this wonderful scroll saw forum and site) had presented one of the patterns I had donated and informed his readers (which are over 5000 scroll sawyers) about the sale I was having until Oct 1st. I had also sent email notices to my now...

The Start of a Challenge #3: updated pictures and status

11-27-2010 12:14 AM by rhybeka | 0 comments »

Slow going, I know, but I finally had a chance to make some headway on this project today. My work area has changed to our back sunroom since the garage is officially too cold to get anything to dry in a decent amount of time :D I’m kind of winging it since I’ve really parted ways from the original plan on the interior of the case. I’ll have to see if I can upload a picture of my sketchup draft. Here’s what it looks like currently – the clamps are holding in the...

Concrete Countertop Series #10: Final Entry

01-08-2011 03:05 AM by Siegel_KenEvil | 3 comments »

This will be my final blog entry. I’ll post a finished project after applying calk and getting the plumbing done. The below image shows what it will look like but it’s not really plumbed. Need the finish to harden first. Since my last entry, I filled in the voids again with just a cement/water mix and sanded to 200 grit with and orbital sander. A little hand work was required in the corners. I then used a copper sulfate (root killer) / water mix for the color according...

Just for Fun... #42: A Slow Start in 2011...

01-29-2011 05:03 AM by littlecope | 19 comments »

... or, “How to make Something completely different from what you planned…” Last month, just before Christmas, I was told that my Dad’s car was going to be sold. I asked the price, and it was a fair one, so I bought the car for Debbie and I… Isn’t it a Beauty!! LOL… That boat-shaped thing in the snow, was my Father’s 1992 Volvo. He loved and babied it, so it’s in terrific shape for a vehicle nearly 20 years old. It’s now ours and, by...
