07-28-2010 09:24 AM by 559dustdesigns | 9 comments »

I built a large hardware storage cabinet to house an assortment of fine thread bolts.My friend builds custom cars in his shop.In order to secure these expensive nuts, bolts and washers, he hired me to build a cabinet to lock them up when he isn’t around. The assortment came with a large blue rack with a lot of bins for all the different fasteners.This rack is made in three parts that will slide right into my cabinet.If you’ve followed my blog, I built the Table saw island for the ...

Dining Room Set Refurbish #2: Interesting challenges from past "fixes" to the chair

11-06-2010 07:23 PM by mtkate | 3 comments »

It’s amazing how many problems can result when someone tries to fix something fast. And all this is on just one chair!!! . . . . .On the last image – not only was an extra screw hole added but the screw was put in straight onto the rail and whoever did it pierced the wood a bit on the other side as the screw was simply too long (AND too thick). I guess the most difficult part will be filling in the sections of oak that broke off. Over the last couple ...

WHY?

11-17-2010 09:51 AM by Bearpie | 33 comments »

This has nothing to do with woodworking except maybe as a means of hauling my wood! My truck was stolen from our driveway this morning in broad daylight. My wife went shopping with her 97 year old mother, they went to Wal Mart then to a grocery store and upon arriving home my wife mentioned that I must have gone shopping cause the truck was not in the driveway. Upon entering the house she noticed that the shop was lit up and she could see me working in there. I called 911 and they showed up ...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #2: BUSTED!!!

11-29-2010 01:40 AM by bues0022 | 6 comments »

So much for trying to keep this top secret! My wife checked my email account from my phone last night when we were driving back from Thanksgiving. She was a bit curious about what this Top Secret project was all about. I tried minimizing the damage by admitting that: “I was thinking of building one, but said that I don’t have nearly the ability to make it. The thread was just feeling it out, and it bombed on me.” She seemed to buy the excuse for now. And to make sure this do...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #8: Belated X-mas tools

12-27-2010 05:45 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

Got home a little while ago with gifts from my in-laws – Christmas was belated this year as my wife is a nurse and had to work last night, so we went over to her parents house tonight. The tools I’m really excited about are the two new Lee Valley/Veritas plane blades I got. The #8 I bought had a blade that was extremely pitted and pretty much un-salvageable, so I put a 2 5/8” A2 blade on my list alone with a 2” for the cheapo #4 I have (on the premise that I’ll...

Rogue Fine Living #1: Natural Lines- the work of Jeffro Uitto

01-19-2011 12:34 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

If you’re a crab or a seagull on the Washington coast, there is one guy that has just become a part of the coastal scenery. His rugged figure just blends into the coastline. Blending in is helped by the fact that he’s usually lugging around a piece of drift wood that is commonplace on the inlet near Tokeland. His bent form under the weight of the wet wood perfectly mimics the shape of the gnarled piece he carries. (Read the rest of the artical at http://roguefineliving.com/)

Shop Layout Planning....at last I have the space but working on ideas

01-31-2011 05:36 AM by CobraDriver | 9 comments »

Well I have a nice size building that just needs to get organized and planned out properly. We just bought this place and decisions, decisions. For the first time in my life I’m spoiled, I have alot of space and now I don’t know what to do with it!. The machines are few as of yet, a Shop Smith 510 sort of :) with bandsaw, a router table and combo sander. To keep the place clean I have a Jet 1100. Picked it up quite nicely from a fella upgrading to a monster system and sold ...

I need help in deciding what to build next.

02-19-2011 01:35 AM by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...
