Finally! A Day In The Shop

08-22-2010 06:35 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

As a busy summer winds down, I finally had a chance to get into the shop. Spend the day cleaning up clutter arrangong the floor mats and setting down a list of things I would like to get done before winter sets in. As my shop is small, everything is on casters and those on my sjoberg bench need to be made retractable to lower the bench to a better work height. I have three drawers that need to be installed on full extension glides under another bench. (I moved these from Milwaukee 2 and ...

Unique Entertainment Center #2: Part 2

09-16-2010 02:24 AM by dataman | 1 comment »

Man its been a long time since my first post so I will try to catch you up on my progress. I have been plaining a lot of cherry wood at the start of the project. I filled up three 55 gallon drums of shavings! I extended the feed area and the out area of the plainer with 2X4’s and positioned the plainer at the double doors that open into the garage to accommodate the board lengths. Sure glad I thought if using double doors! Lots of boards to be glued up! Again using the garage (my ...

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high. T...

Disaster in the form of a 2yr old

11-05-2010 02:51 AM by doorslammer | 20 comments »

I recently finished my LVL Sitting Bench and delivered it to a local gallery on Tuesday for a “recycled” show. Then last night on my way home from work I get a call from the gallery asking me to come down becuase there was a problem. I arrived to see the following horror,Some lady was in the gallery and evidently let her 2 yr old daughter roam a little to far and ended up taking a ball point pen to the top of my bench. Fortunately, the bruising was mostly superficial, and aft...

I’ve been posting lots of questions for about a week now, emailing and messaging fellow Lumberjocks, and I’ve finally started my project so I thought I’d blog about it to keep track of my project. Progress may not be the quickest, but I’ll post what I run into along the way – the good, the bad, and the ugly! My wife and I are thinking about finally starting a family. I just finished graduate school, got a job, and she’ll be done with her doctorate also i...

Back to the drawing board

12-12-2010 01:26 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to blog. I’ve been super busy trying to take care of things around the house and trying to make CHRISTmas gifts for the family. I’ve been working on a set of coasters for my parents and have come to the conclusion that a new design is in order. I was not abiding by the “keep it simple” principle and it came back to bite me. I haven’t taken any pics of my project thus far but I plan to once things are fin...

I think I am becoming anti-laminate

12-25-2010 05:30 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

I am already anti-plan. I don’t like making anything by following someone else’s plan. Figuring out how to make it is half the fun and I often change my mind about a dimension or joinery technique during the making process based on how it looks to me. I am anti-hardware. Whenever possible, I like to make things that contain no metal. Probably no one else cares, but for me it is a point of honor to not resort to the use of metal. I am anti-fancy design. I think the bea...
