Tribal Bass Guitar Cabinet 1st post

01-11-2014 01:37 AM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

This cabinet will hold basses and guitars in cases. Euro beech framing, cherry and chilean myrtle panels. The rails are cut from one large board, kept in sequence as is the cherry in the top panels. The grain in the top panels changes direction. The Myrtle will be hand carved to achieve irregular lines and painted. The tribal art of Papua New Guinea has a big influence on the work I do. I love it. The feet are a nod to Leo Fender. The framing is 27mm thick, the stiles and rails are sl...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #8: Upholstering the seat

01-26-2014 11:08 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

Finally!!! We get to do some upholstery!!! 45% preparation – 45% finishing 10% upholstery. You will need cotton which can be bought at an upholster supply company for about $30. Mine is 30 inches wide which is just right for upholstery. I walked over to my roll and literally tore off about a 25 inch length. I’m going to say my magic words again. This isn’t wood working. You measure precisely and cut with scissors. There is no benefit except for saving a few inches o...

Workshop Development #88: Quick and dirty 20 minutes in the shop. More drywall up!

02-12-2014 03:10 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I know it isn’t much, but I have some more of the drywall up, the big part from the halfway point to the door brackets. It allowed me to close up the gap allowing cold air to blow in around the studs. I caulked that up, installed the drywall and patched a mistake. I have a couple areas to clean up / install maybe tonight and I am good to go! The tough part is going to be the bottom around the AC ducts. I can get it done, but it will take some creativity. This weekend most likely, ...

G0555X Bandsaw Drama

02-28-2014 05:45 PM by RandyinFlorida | 8 comments »

My brand new Grizzly Bandsaw (re: toy) was to be delivered on Wednesday by a certain shipping company (not DOWNS but…). Anyway, on Wednesday they left a note on my door that they would try again Thursday. So I took off work for the whole day. By 4PM I was a little concerned; I went on line, traced my shipping number, confirmed that it would be delivered in fact on Thursday. So I waited… Six o’clock; still no saw. Called the 800 number on the back of the note. A very p...

Sapele Maple Coffee Table #1: Planning

03-19-2014 05:57 AM by Jordan | 0 comments »

I have been planning a coffee table project for about a year now and it has gone through a number of design concepts. I have always wanted to build a table out of walnut and contrast is with maple accents. This is a recurring theme in my projects. I struggled with the theme and style for a long time. The intent was to be simple, but with some minor details that stand out and increase the technical aspect of the work. I also like square and simple lines with solid members. I am not a fan ...

New kitchen cabinets for the beach

04-04-2014 04:14 PM by PopsHuckster | 3 comments »

When my son and I tore the ceiling out last summer to repair the truss’ and replace the heavy 3/4 fiber board ceiling with luan, we had to remove the existing upper cabinets in the kitchen because of the way they were built. Once I could get into my wood shop and after most of the horrible winter snows and freezes were pretty much over, I set about building the cabinets I had done the drawing for previously. The new cabinets should be much lighter but install like normal kitchen cabi...

It’s about that time here in sunny Arizona. Happens every May, and lasts till late September. My garage shop hit the 100 degree mark this afternoon while I was working on some trestle legs for a dining table.Definitely time to start working early mornings when it is ONLY 80-85 degrees.Cleaned up and took this picture before I decided to hide in the air conditioning. Please don’t say it is a dry heat. it is NOT dry heat when you’re sweating like a pig wrestling 8/4 l...

My Version of the $175 Workbench #2: Coming together

06-07-2014 11:15 PM by jonah | 2 comments »

I started this blog series when I was halfway done with the workbench, so it probably seems like the thing is coming together a lot faster than it should. Yesterday and today I worked on the long stretchers. I got the holes drilled, got the cross dowels situated, and bolted everything together. The process went fairly smoothly, but in hindsight I should have created a jig to determine the exact location of the hole for the cross dowels. In probably 3-4 out of the 8 holes I had to widen...
