A buddy was putting his business together, so I offered him even more advice based on my experience. Link to More Logo Opinions.
Well, I got a chance to get into the shop today and was able to make the face frame for the case. I made it just a little proud of the case so I could go back and cut it flush using the router. I also added the shelf for a space for boxed cars below the shelf as well as on the shelf. One other thing I started was the rails and stiles for the doors. I cut these to size and added a rabbit for an 1/8” thick glass that will be inserted into the doors. Will probably head int...
I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!
I’ve been busy after work every day this week with projects that SWMBO has deemed I will be doing… We bought a queen memory foam mattress set for the guest bedroom, and I got to pick it up and move it in. Now this bed is a very simple bed, just a roller frame, and mattress set. Anyway, so the bed gets put in, then we haul tail over to the linens shop to get a sheet set, and of course a bed skirt because the bare roller frame is fugly… Now the guest bedroom more or less...
Just playing around with Sketchup and mocked up the drill press table I desperately need to build. MDF and Kreg T-track. Might add a dust port and hardwood border later.
Picked up my lodgepole pine posts from a orchard this morning. They bring in LOT sizes for there tree’s.(10ft. x 2” dia.) I drove by thinking I wonder if they sell them, they are the size I use for my log chairs and patio furniture. I had been buying larger diameter posts from Lumber yard and splitting them into 1/3 then running them through my “homemade dowel maker.” Was a lot of extra work and wasted a fair amount of material.(Fun the first day, then it became work !...
Kreg’s 10,000 screws photo contest ends at 11:50 pm on July 29, 2010 (tomorrow night!), and I had to get the follow-up photo to the original posted! Of COURSE the cap is still holding!!!! I USED KREG POCKET HOLES!!!!
So lining up the rails, building the gate and all for my fence, I discovered something REALLY annoying… The last post hole appears to be 6” inward on the property line instead of right on it (Now HOW did that chalk line move?)/ So anyway, I had to remove an already concreted in post. Yay fun right? Out comes the cats paw to gracefully remove the nails from the rails, and then the concrete removal tools came out. Yep, the 10 lb sledge hammer, and shovel. Now I am pretty sure ...
