Sexy Plane Give-away Contest Project #4: Ready for some glue

12-15-2015 08:09 PM by Timmy2Hands | 0 comments »

So this morning I’m going to start by cutting the holes for the weather instruments.I find the center of the panel and mark a line in pencil, then lines 1” on either side to give me 2” between the holes.I set my dividers to 1 1/4” and scribe two 2 1/2” circles. I use a brace and a forstner bit to make a small hole to get my saw blade through. Now it’s just a matter of cutting close to the line with the coping saw and then refining the hole with a rasp un...

Prospecting for Wood #6: Something Useful from the latest Salvage

03-09-2009 03:32 AM by Paul | 5 comments »

The results of my latest wood salvage. These are 3 sets of 12 drawers – Oak fronts with Poplar drawer sides. Each set is a different size – 24” 18” 12”. Cases will be sized accordingly, of course. Yet I used most the wood from the salvage to build the drawer cases. Here’s a pine version of something similar that I use in my shop for small items – layout tools, etc. I use different knobs on the oak and I’m more particular ab...

Kreg Jig Pen Press

12-19-2015 01:39 PM by Chris McDowell | 5 comments »

I’ve been using a combination of a quick clamp and the drill press to press pen kits together. Both the quick clamp and the drill press are awkward to use doing this. I was looking at pictures of pen presses recently and it dawned on me that I could probably use my Kreg jig. It was way easier than using the clamp and drill press. The only thing is that there is just barely enough space to press the transmission, but I found if I angled it at first I could just press a little, then chan...

Michigan Picnic

03-26-2009 02:56 PM by Rustic | 2 comments »

Alright Michigan Lumberjocks. I only have 2 responses so far. My 1st announcement a few months ago had about 12-14. Lets get moving on this. I am planning some fun things for us to do. If anyone wants to bring carving tools to show off your craft or teach us how to carve, that woul be awesome. The same could be said for scroll work. I will bring my Kreg Rocket pocket jig. Which I have used for the first time and I love it. So lets go go go. Looking forward to seeing a great turn out.

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #5: I got a little more done today than I thought I would!

04-12-2009 05:15 AM by BethMartin | 8 comments »

I wasn’t sure that I would have any free time today to do any work on my project. And yesterday was my 40th birthday, so I expected to be tired and hungover. ;P But I wasn’t too bad off. I was waiting for a dado insert for the table saw, and I got that the other day. So really I had no more excuse not to start on this thing, other than nerves. All my plywood was already cut into 2’x8’ pieces, but I still had to rough cut that into smaller pieces with the circular...

Shop Remodel #25: Let's See What's Behind Door #1

12-24-2015 11:42 PM by bearkatwood | 7 comments »

So I have finished one door panel and started on the second. Carving is a slow process and I have great respect for carvers. Truly a very hard part of the craft to master. So here are the pictures of the panel that has finish on it. That curly maple exploded with figure! Ahh! how cute, I carved our initials in the tree. Bear Loves KittyThat’s where BearKat Wood got it’s name. On to the next panel. Take care everyone and have fun woodworking.

Lamp - Shoji, midcentury modern - inspired #2: lumber!

05-01-2009 05:02 PM by AaronK | 2 comments »

I was kindly given this bit of lumber by Larry at “the wood store” just south of Morgantown. it came from a single ~6” wide board that was a bit warped. he planed it down a bit and cut it at the knots to make it easier to handle. I think i’ll use that piece on the right for the base, since it has some nice symmetric grain. The rest of it should be plenty for the lamp, since i calculated using about a board-ft for the rest of it. sweet.
