Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #12: Where I'm at!

06-08-2009 07:38 AM by BethMartin | 14 comments »

Got some stuff done today, so now I need to get some pics up! This is the back of the top part of my shelving unit, before I put the back on. And this is with the back on. I painted it first, then attached it. It’s just cheapy pine tongue and groove. It’s really hard to photograph the color but I think this pic is close. I’ve left the wall side stile off until I can fit it once it’s up there. I finally relented and bought a pocket screw jig and will attach it wit...

Blanket Chest #17: Torsion Lid-Stay Hinges are On: This Project is Completed

01-05-2016 11:26 PM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

ROCKLER LID-STAY TORSION HINGE INSTALLATION Although installing the hinges was a simple process, I wanted to be sure that it went on without any mistakes. I wanted the lid to be centered on the case with just the right overlay. Of course, the right amount of overlay with the hinges I was using was set in motion weeks ago. That is when I cut the lid panel to its final dimensions. It was that long ago that these steps today where easily processed. The steps I took to install the hinge...

I have been working on this project time permitting. Had end of school year stuff with the kids, a surprise visit from some relatives, and of course been busy traveling for work, so it has been interment to say the best :( So, I got this puppy glued up a couple of weekends ago. After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

Four New Projects to Start 2016 #1: Milling Rough Sawn Lumber for Three of These Projects

01-13-2016 06:47 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

What can I say? I am either a multi-tasker or I have ADD syndrome where I cannot concentrate on one thing. However, in my application development days I was able to work on things for hours and days on end. Why should I do that now? I am retired. As stated in a previous blog about my small workbench, I have plan for projects to start 2016. First, I am going to make a copy of Steve Latta’s Miniature Bench. Having that completed first should help me with the other project build...

Redwood Removal for Safety Saved from the Woodchipper!

08-05-2009 09:27 PM by California Urban Lumber | 5 comments »

California Urban Lumber is at it again, keeping those nice trees from ending up at the landfill. These particular logs came from Sacramento, CA. Hoover Horticultural Service of Sacramento was called in to remove the trees for safety reasons and called us to see if we could use the lumber. We loaded some nice three foot diameter, twenty four foot long Redwood logs and trucked them back to our yard. I have already milled the logs into one by twelve inch lumber to use as siding on ...
