Underutilized shop space - a lament

12-16-2011 05:05 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 19 comments »

I know many LJs here do amazing things in super tight spaces, and that always gets me thinking about my space and ways I can better utilize my dedicated shop area. Then I looked at this big cabinet: So many things here I simply do not reach for… It’s longer term supplies and misc junk for ‘someday’ and just collects dust. Is there discipline out there that attacks this type of mess, or am I in the majority? And aside from throwing out / selling what I dont need,...

Layered epoxy inlay #11: Calling it done................for now

01-23-2012 07:29 PM by JoeyG | 16 comments »

Well here we are at the end….. At least for now. I filled in the teeth and sanded it back down. I am happy with the results. It was a very fun and interesting experiment and I will be doing more of these in the future. You can see in the picture where I will have to go back and fix a little of the black around the teeth but that will have to wait. I plan to use this in a future project but I haven’t made my mind up as to what is will become.Until then, thanks to everyone who...

Barnwood Countertops #13: Filling Holes, Making a Mess, Using Epoxy

02-04-2012 09:33 PM by spunwood | 2 comments »

This part of the blog should really be between the backsplash entry and the arm-r-seal This is the transition I have dreaded. All the pieces have been cut and shaped and glued and prepped. Now begins the finishing process! These countertops need to be pretty waterproof, but I want to retain the knots, and worm holes. Thus I opted for 24 ounces of Clear Coat from System Three. But that stuff is a bit expensive, so I first filled the holes on the underside with wood putty. This also...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #24: Drawbore, Glue Up, and Starting on the Tabletop

03-11-2012 10:44 PM by RGtools | 22 comments »

The process of drawboring has been mostly covered but I felt like giving a few tips in case this is in your mind to do on your table. The main thing is to make sure that the holes are spaced so they miss each other and are close to the middle of the tenon (mine could have been closer). Also make sure that the hole you drill is not going to be under the shoulder of one of your rails…simple mistake that makes assembly kind of hard. Your holes should be as close to the rails as they can be witho...

media cabinet #2: drywall up

04-03-2012 03:15 PM by rasp | 0 comments »

my friend came over last night and fixed up the drywall for me, and got the first coat of mud on. i could have probably tried doing this myself, it’s a few patches and some mudding, but i wanted it to look professional and be done on time, and i just so happened to have a friend who does this for a living. i appreciate his help very much and facilitated him as best as i could. i have experience working on job sites as a labourer and cleaning up is a familiar task. he’s c...

planes, trains and vehicals? #2: wish glue dryed faster and was young enough not to look guilty when caught playing

05-04-2012 03:24 AM by jacob34 | 2 comments »

I finished cutting a little detail in the tracks with the BS and a dremmel. Then took some larger diameter dowel I have and made a hatch and as I was looking at the dowels decided the tank II needed a machine gun which is made out of some dowel and a piece of maple left over from a box. The wheels are glued and tomorrow will be put under and the tracks glued to the body. Then paint. I realize this is probably really small and most the lumberjocks on here could probably have th...

Start of a couple projects #4: Put on Hold

06-04-2012 12:31 AM by Michael | 3 comments »

I was making some progress and then things were put on hold. I got some of the pieces glued and sanded. I cut the rabbets on the legs and cleaned them up with m y new router plane. Then the wife put her foot down and I am finishing and installing trim in the girls room. Starting with the doos casing. But I have had some time to play with finish for the end table. Oh well, I’ll get back to the end table eventually.

Jake's chair #5: Mister sand man

06-19-2012 06:11 AM by James Alberding | 2 comments »

I came home from work today and went straight to the shed after listening to the shot of the day and got busy! Now that I have made my templates for the chair, I routed all of the round over edges that are called for by the Jake’s chair plans. I really do enjoy using the router, there is something satisfying to watching the edges go from raw cut edges, to pretty, smooth, and finished as the bit passes with ease. But on the down side, I really want that router table because bending ov...
