Rescued Wood #14: Beauty IN the Beast

02-01-2010 10:04 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus).Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar.Slice it on a bandsaw.And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax .You never can judge a book by its cover

Burst Pipe #1: The verdict.

02-13-2010 08:12 PM by Sivers | 9 comments »

I mentioned a few days ago about the flooded basment becuase of a frozen water pipe. Things are getting back to normal. We have heat (new furnace) and are slowly digging out from the mountains of stuff piled throughout the house. The basement has dried out nicely. They put in some massive blowers and dehumidifiers and there isn’t any wet spots left in the entire place. Quite a difference from arriving home last Sunday to fiind this mess: Tuesday: This is the emptiest its e...

I erased the first line in this blog 6 times already. I can’t seem to decide if I want to be funny, serious, or both when in fact, I’m neither. Anyway this is supposed to be a woodworking blog about me and my experiances so I think I will just stick to that, OK? So after about 5 years now, I have decided to get back into woodworking again. I have always been into woodworking since I was about 10 years old. I used to build tree forts and all kinds of structures when I was ...

A journey into the workshop. #48: Working on kitchen cabinet re-organization projects...

03-12-2010 11:23 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So as I am a tool junkie, LOML is a Pampered Chef junkie, and over the years, she has accumulated pretty much the entire PC catalog, and in many cases, several of the more important items such as pitchers, bakers, gravy boats and such… Now the problem is, we have a pretty pathetic cabinet layout for the size house we have. So we quickly overran the available storage capacity of the cabinets… Now our upper cabinets do not butt up against the ceiling, but rather match the heig...

Red Oak adventure

04-05-2010 10:54 PM by sw_iowa_sawyer | 7 comments »

I am not sure anyone even reads these things but I thought I would post another one for those that like this kind of thing. I have been looking for some red oak logs for quite a while and have been unable to find any.I finally have found some with the help of a friend. The owners are having some timber work done and have allowed me to get a couple blow downs. They have been down for a year or maybe two but still should produce some good lumber. I pulled 7 logs from the timber with the help...

Extremely Average #109: A new project begins

04-21-2010 04:43 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello LJ Buddies, I am starting a new project today. Unlike the other projects I am not going to wing this one. I believe I have assembled all the materials I need, and I will be attempting to create a 3 in 1 jig, that will allow me to plane a surface of up to 34 inches, cut thinish laminate strips with my circular saw, and drill holes at uniform lengths that are absolutely perpendicular to the board. So I took a picture of the starting stuff, and drove around and took more pictures o...

I need some help finding something. Several months ago I spotted plans for a square-top side table/candlestand that was on a 3-legged base. The top also had two dovetailed drawers. It was what appeared to be an 18th century (?) historical reproduction piece. Smallish table – sort of on par with those little round-top Shaker candle stands you see everywhere made in cherry. I thought I saw it in an older FWW magazine. But after four hours at my local library sifting through back issues...
