Workshop #6: A Bad & Good Week for the workshop

04-28-2008 03:29 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

Well last Sunday we received around 4” of rain in a 24 hour period half of which came overnight. I happened to want to get something out of my shop on Monday morning and opened the basement only to be hit with the smell of “wet basement”. I quickly looked around and found some puddles and seepage around the whole basement but not a lof standing water. After coming home from work early I was able to better assess the damage, it seems my sump pump switch failed and the narrow ...

handtool workbench #11: Leg assemblies dryfit and a mockup

11-13-2015 08:01 AM by Tugboater78 | 6 comments »

So i think i left off working on tenons. I worked on marking all of them out after posting last entry. Got two of them ready for first leg assembly. And after a lot of paring and beating about i got it together. It is nowhere near perfect cosmetically, but solid on a functional level. Then i went to bed. Got up this past morning, and worked on rough sizing of tenons for next assembly. I hadn’t gotten mortices done on other 2 legs but had marked them out. After my experience cho...

Small Painter's Cabinet #4: Cutting the sides to proper dimension

06-20-2008 01:48 AM by Stephen Fields | 4 comments »

Like I said earlier, I accidentally set up the table saw with a dado blade before I realized that I had neglected to cut the sides to length. Since the template I am using is based on the dadoes being the correct length, I had to remove the dado stack and put in the normal blade. When I perform cross cuts, I use a sled. This is particularly important when I need to cut many pieces to the same length. Here is a picture of the first side sitting on my cross cut sled. (Note: This is version 2...

Roubo-ish Workbench Build #12: It's starting to look a lot like bench time...

11-16-2015 05:10 AM by BikerDad | 2 comments »

This weekend I finished up cutting the tenons (80% by hand) for the base, fitted them into the legs. Router planes ROCK!!!! I also drilled the long stretchers for the bench bolts and smooth planed all the legs. That was a lot of work! Today, I mixed up some epoxy and put the ends of the base together. A pic of the ends cooking in the dining room is below. After taking them out of the clamp, I cleaned up the squeeze out, moved the top slabs onto my existing bench. I’ve got t...

Pigeon Loft

08-04-2008 02:43 AM by Dali | 0 comments »

starting the pigeon loft project. I have several pages of instructions printed out. I have had all the hardware for some time. I bought the lumber this week. I plan to paint each piece sides and ends so that it is weatherproof. I went out this evening to scope out a location. I had thought I wanted it next to the barn, but decided against that because I don’t want pigeons hanging out on the roof of the barn, so into the back yard it goes. The first step is to lay out foundation blocks i...

Art Deco TV Table #3: Modeling for Effect

11-25-2015 03:37 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

So the thing fits the space. It looks proportionally correct. And it seems to be doing the job. But there’s a number of items that still need to be decided. The real key was the trade off between the angle of the sides, the width of the drawers, and the arc of the front in relation to each other. The smaller the diameter or arc of the front, in other words, the sharper the point, the narrower the drawers would be. And together with the angle of the sides those dimensions dictated ...
