Coop update

01-24-2014 05:48 AM by mervillehomesteader | 3 comments »

Just thought I would add some shots of the doors and interior as per requests. The thing is only a few months old and already getting the creepy barn cobwebs hanging from the rafters. The chickens really dig it and we are now getting about 16 eggs a day. Happy, happy chickens Heres the dutch doors at the front. Not a bad challenge, just 1/2 inch cedar panels sandwiched with more 1/2 inch cedar for the rails and stiles. This is the roost. It is simply attached with a screw at each rafter...

End table set - build #12: Finishing the tops

02-09-2014 03:18 PM by Ottacat | 1 comment »

The first step was to dye to mahogany frame components of the tops. As I indicated in my last post I found the GF light brown dye stain gave the look I wanted. I dyed them using a towel and obviously had to be careful not to get the dye on the veneered centre panel. Having the 1/8” ebony inlay as a buffer was key. I would apply the dye stain with one towel and then wipe it down with a clean one. It took a bit of work not to have overlap marks on each corner but the GF line of dye stains...

Cherry sideboard #4: Glue up starts

02-25-2014 12:53 AM by SFDCapt | 0 comments »

I went to my secret stash yesterday and picked up enough of the cherry boards to finish up this project. After I got it home I spent some time sorting it and figuring out which pieces I wanted to mill into the side panels. This morning instead of getting a good start on those side panels I decided to rearrange some of my shop to make room for a new…... you’ll have to wait till it gets here! Once the shop was put back together I started milling the 4/4 stock down to size. I...

Dust Collection #1: 6" HVAC duct supports

03-16-2014 03:46 AM by Holbs | 4 comments »

after completing my Thien Baffle (well, a couple more things to do to it but has to wait til ducting is 100%).. next tackle is the HVAC 6” runs and duct supports. I’m directly running from the Thien Baffle inlet horizontally across my 2 car garage and branching off 8 6” wye’s and 2 4” wye’s along the 2”x12” board attached to the wall (which is hiding my horizontal electrical runs). Today, I spent time fabricating the 6” supports with the...

Hello again Can anyone tell me the best way to seal and waterproof, as best as possible, the legs of my Adirondack chairs. These are old chairs that I want to save for a few more years as I made 2 new ones to replace these with cypress. Thanks as always… Al

Power Upgrade #29: After They Left

04-19-2014 09:35 PM by Nate Meadows | 12 comments »

Ok, so turns out taking care of a sick wife, her taking care of me having a torn up body and brain and the two of us taking care of two kids takes more balancing than I thought.:) My ability to adapt has obviously been slowed since I was in the military. Anyway, what matters most is that we are moving ever forward! Thanks so much family for your patience! You guys rock! So, going back in time. When the men from the church came over to fill the trenches I was running around like a mad man t...

Working with recycled timber #31: PTLT Hinge rework

06-04-2014 05:13 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I purchased a second set of Concealed Hinge Blind Corner 95 Degree to do hinge rework on.Firstly the hinges are only designed for 19mm timber in their present form.This deduced from a graphic on the template and my prototype evaluation.However you can use them on timber larger if you wish. Here is how I used them on 38mm timber Simply a matter of recessing them This is only a prototype to enable me to complete my PTLT top with no opening gap when closed It appears that the...

Weekend Project - Cherry Wall Cabinet #2: Day Two

07-20-2014 11:20 PM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video of the series, I fit the shelves and then I can start making the door for the cabinet. I unfortunately made a mistake which set me back from finishing the cabinet within the time frame that I set for myself. Still I made some good progress and it’s really starting to look good. And as always, I like to hear your comments and questions!
