wooden winch #2: the pole

08-23-2010 10:21 AM by moshel | 6 comments »

I have to apologize for not taking pictures while building it – thought about it only later. there are some photos of the end of this stage at the bottom of the page. So, I looked at my timber rack and found that the only reasonably sound “beam” I had is 3×4. However, it was a wonderfully dense heart Rimu. So, I denailed it (hard work – its from recycled buildings and taking out these 3 3/4” nails out of it is really hard) milled it to just under 3×3...

I finally have it stained. Been working on this one for 3 weeks. 1/2 hour here, 1/2 hour there, etc. I HATE working like that , BUT, we do what we have to do ! This cabinet stands 46” high, is 18” deep x 26” wide. It has 1 drawer at top, 2 pull out serving trays, and the bottom behind the window is storage. I used an old house door as the main frame of sides. Cleaning the old paint and stain almost took longer than the construction. I did leave some flakes of...

Time for wood?

09-30-2010 03:43 PM by Bret | 2 comments »

I saw these just today and thought they were pretty cool. Not overly expensive, either. I think this one’s my favorite: Looks like the woods they use are red wing celtis, ebony, maple and guaiaco. I’d love to know how they’re finished.

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #9: More shop progress. storage bins, and router bit storage.

10-12-2010 05:06 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Not a lot to talk about here today, just a couple of deviations from the plan, due to wanting to get the shop up and going prior to getting the clamshell cabinets done. I have added a short shelf below the 6’ shelf that my hand held stuff is on for storage of my measuring and marking tools, as well as my various pnuematic fasteners, and other boxes of stuff. The small parts bins have gotten wall mounted, as have the router bit cabinets. I found I have been amassing a large selection of ...

Router table top for my table saw

11-06-2010 12:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #6: Been A while but making progress.

01-10-2011 01:01 AM by therookie | 2 comments »

Well it has been a long time since I added an entry to my blog so I thought that I would continue updating my progress on the two shaker end tables I am building. Now that I have a biscuit joiner and a dovetail jig I was able to make the drawers and have been doin pretty good. I have changed the design so I can cover up the end grain as best I could and decided to put on a walnut bread-board edge.The drawer sides and back have to put the pins in the front still and mill the grove for the bott...
