Fireplace Construction #2: A little more progress

08-08-2009 07:20 PM by kcZ | 5 comments »

I devoted some more time to the fireplace project. Created the mantle. All pictures so far are unfinished, in fact, everything is just set into position. I am still trying to figure out how to secure this to the wall. I will likely also continue the wall behind the fireplace to the ceiling and mount the television to the wall. Lately I have been leaning towards a frame and panel type wall instead of painted drywall.

Workbench #7: Finish line is in sight!...Maybe. Are they ever completely finished?

09-15-2009 04:00 AM by KellyS | 3 comments »

I began working on the mortises in the top and had a complete relapse in talent. The first one was horrible. I used a drill guide I bought from Sears in hopes of everything being perpendicular and cleaner. Boy was I partially wrong. The first one came out horrible, but cleaned up so,so. I’m so glad this wasn’t one of the mortises in the base. I started trying to use a 1-1/2” fostner bit but eventually downsized to a 1-3/8” and chose to clean them up with a chisel. I was having a hard time sta...

I had another allergic reaction

09-30-2009 06:49 AM by Blake | 30 comments »

I haven’t been spending too much time in the shop ever since i finished the Jellyfish Table. I actually moved about 10 miles away from my shop so it is not as easy to “casually” do woodworking after work, after dinner, here and there on weekends, etc. My shop is on family property, so its not going anywhere. It takes me about 25 minutes to get there from where we are staying now. So I mostly go on a weekend day here and there. I have been up to the shop a few times to ...

More to the point, the cutting board… Now mind you, I KNOW that a cutting board is probably NOT the thing you want to get or make for just any wife, but my wife likes to cook, and LOVES high end kitchen goodies. Pampered Chef is like crack to her… Completely addictive… Sort of like Lumberjocks I guess… Anyway I digress. I made more progress on the board today, and it is really starting to take shape. I fished through my roundover bits, and my routers, found th...

My "Man Cave" Project

12-19-2009 02:07 AM by Jimmer | 3 comments »

This is my ongoing project. Started this a couple of years ago. I guess I consider myself a pretty good do it yourselfer, but this job was a whole lot more than I expected. I pretty much went from an empty basement to what you see here. I put up all the walls, ran the electric with the help of an electrician friend of mine, hung the ceiling, and did the laminate floors myself. The bar is a big 12 feet by 7 feet. I made it mostly out of 2×4’s and plywood. I attached the rail to ...
