The Workshop #1: Starting out - ARGH. Too many projects, but what to do first?

05-21-2009 12:34 AM by Milo | 3 comments »

Now that I finally, (well, almost) have all my boxes unpacked, I am stuck with the dilemma of trying to figure out the proper order in which to put my shop into good working use. ARGH. Too many projects, but what to do first? Here are some of the projects I have planned, and the order I was thinking of doing them in. 1) Workbench (duh), Modified Nicholson design.2) Sharkguard (I plan on making my own) 2) Super Sled crosscut sled3) Miter Saw Cart w/ extension4) Plywood mover5) Cy...

Headboard challenge #1: 1st the planning.

06-08-2009 03:55 AM by TraumaJacques | 3 comments »

This is my challenge. I have been asked to make this Queen size antique headboard into a King size. My client had asked me to built a head board for her, I was busy and said it would be a few weeks before I could commit to it. She found one on an internet classified add for a lot cheaper than what I could build hers for. The problem is that it was advertised has a King size but is in reality a queen size ( you get what you pay for right). Now $350.00 later she came back to me to see wha...

I set out this spring to make a cutting a cutting board as a wedding present for my niece, but wasn’t able to finish it in time because of a shop accident [LJ blog link]. After the bandages came off I went back to work on it but I’ve never really been happy with it and eventually stopped work altogether. But, even though the first piece has too many mistakes in it to go out the door with my name on it, a promise is a promise. So, as I’ll talk more about in the next e...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

Tool Reviews - Clearance Sales

09-28-2009 05:34 AM by dustyal | 4 comments »

This is a rambling blog about tool reviews, and not a tool review itself. Last week I picked up a Delta Shopmaster TP305 planer at Lowe’s clearance sale… $180. I haven’t actually used it yet. I’m having second thoughts. It was the display unit… the last they had. I had previously read decent reviews, but I am wondering if those reviews covered this model. The price was too good to pass up. Maybe I should have passed? It had no box or manual. Manuals ...

Study Book Shelves #1: Living In a Mess

10-13-2009 10:18 PM by Paul | 3 comments »

It’s been nine months since I posted a blog and over a year since I posted a project. Time flies. Well, I’ve wanted to rebuild the book shelves in my study for some time. The volume of books had outgrown my current shelving capacity (96” wide and 48” tall). I had been confused by the book shelves in my church study though. I have never worked with mahogany, but they appeared to be made of mahogany. And for some unfathomable reason (in my mind), they had been...

Dog Bowl for English Mastiffs #2: After conditioning and staining

10-30-2009 04:47 PM by locash | 2 comments »

Thanks for the great comments on the first blog post guys! Thought I would post a minor update after conditioning and staining. So the first entry was prior to sanding and pocket hole drilling. Since then I have drilled the pocket holes to hold the top and legs to skirt. Guess I need a better drill b/c on the last few I got a bit of tear out on the wood (seems like the drill was slowing down). Nothing that a little sanding wouldn’t cure. After sanding I applied Minwax wood con...
