UNPOSTED PROJECTS -- NOW POSTED #3: Multiple drawers from scraps

1288 days ago by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

CREATIVITY, INOVATION, RESOURCEFULNESS, These are the words of mouth from those who saw my multiple drawer. I made this after collecting toner drum catridges from a copier. I have seen the possibility of recycling it to a drawer because of the linearity of the protruding guide slide. This is definitely a difficult situation of making a groove precisely cut in between division panels. I used 3/4 plywood which is also scrap pieces. Another challenge was to utilize the top and the bottom ...

Building My Work Shop #3: A Nice, but difficult Dilemma

1276 days ago by Crushgroovin | 7 comments »

So after months of being flat ass broke we have finally resolved and outstanding issue which has resulted in a cash settlement. After meeting our savings goals and other critical items I have a little bit to spend on my workshop. So my dilemma is what to do with it. I originally had been set selling the old Incra Ultra I bought and replacing it with the LS Super System. I like the new design and the Wonder Fence is exactly what I need, oh ok exactly what I want. I don’t have a jointe...

So why have I not been blogging much lately?

1227 days ago by dbhost | 4 comments »

Real simple, I have had very little shop time, and what shop time I have had, has had very little to do with woodworking… Aside from the projects you all know about, or I think you do because you read my blog… I have also been decking my attic, packing still more insulation in there, replacing a busted AC drain pan / line, replacing sheet rock, texturing etc… Just this past weekend I have… #1. Floated, and taped the closet ceiling in the guest bath, textured a...

One Down One to Go

1213 days ago by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Whew! Made it through another CHRISTmas. Not that it was bad or anything, it’s so busy that a couple of days rest is needed afterwards is needed. I hope that you and yours had a great time celebrating the season. Another year has gone and another is upon us. Can you believe it? In my last blog I discussed how I was in the process of gluing up one of the pedestals of our dining room table. Well, here is the finished product; Side by side Refinishing this was more daunting...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #2: Dirk Boelman

1191 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

After a little reading I have run across the name of Dirk Boelman, “proably the most talented and productive designer and developer of fretwork patterns today”. You can do a Google search and find lots of information about him or go the The Art Factory web site and see (or purchase) his patterns. as I continue to research and resource the area of Victorian Fretwork it seems that there is a lot in good information out there.

Man Cave Work Shop #2: The Properties of Wood

1169 days ago by IceCactus | 1 comment »

I learned an important lesson here today. Wood shrinks, especially when you expose end grain and drill holes in it. I decided on this project that it would be easier if i just batch created parts. It would be less setup and less hassle. So i resawed a couple 2×4’s down to 1” thick x 2-9/16” wide and 5-11/16” long. Drilled my 3 holes per the instructions of the plan and threw it in a box. I only work on the weekends for the most part, so it took me about 2 weeke...

Latest in the Shop

1159 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Quick project last weekend: finished hours before the house flooded and my home shop became closed until further notice. I’ve got the birch sitting around, so Ill probably build two or three more. The diameter on these drums isn’t exactly right for its height & I want to make a tin drumhead rather than stretched poster-paper. The mallet came out well though – if I ever make a xylophone or something, I’ll use the method I used here. —WW
