Just playing around with Sketchup and mocked up the drill press table I desperately need to build. MDF and Kreg T-track. Might add a dust port and hardwood border later.

Scrap Lumber

07-16-2010 05:49 PM by canadianchips | 3 comments »

Picked up my lodgepole pine posts from a orchard this morning. They bring in LOT sizes for there tree’s.(10ft. x 2” dia.) I drove by thinking I wonder if they sell them, they are the size I use for my log chairs and patio furniture. I had been buying larger diameter posts from Lumber yard and splitting them into 1/3 then running them through my “homemade dowel maker.” Was a lot of extra work and wasted a fair amount of material.(Fun the first day, then it became work !...

Not quite in the workshop... #25: Correcting auger mistakes...

08-24-2010 06:40 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So lining up the rails, building the gate and all for my fence, I discovered something REALLY annoying… The last post hole appears to be 6” inward on the property line instead of right on it (Now HOW did that chalk line move?)/ So anyway, I had to remove an already concreted in post. Yay fun right? Out comes the cats paw to gracefully remove the nails from the rails, and then the concrete removal tools came out. Yep, the 10 lb sledge hammer, and shovel. Now I am pretty sure ...

Rivergirl's Tool Box #1: The Beginning

10-25-2010 09:59 PM by helluvawreck | 30 comments »

Since rivergirl has built me a stool that is exactly the way that I wanted it to look I decided that I would build her a tool box as a way of reciprocating. I love the footstool and I think that she did a fine job on it and the wood and finish is just beautiful. It is as though rivergirl had read my mind about the way that I wanted my stool to look. rivergirl has told me that her stool has some flaws in it but I am sure that her tool box will also have some flaws in it so that is as it should...

Craftshow weekend

11-07-2010 02:45 AM by canadianchips | 5 comments »

I just came home from my first attempt at a 2 day “Christmas ” event. About 15 people all rented the local hall and displayed their wares. My wife decided to rent a space and show my stuff. I have blogged a few times about using re-cycled lumber and making furniture out of it. I thought we need to start somewhere. Well, for 2 days I was given the opportunity to listen to people tell me how unique, how original, and how good the work was. They mentioned prices are fair. All I wante...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #179: I Am Right Where I Want to Be

11-29-2010 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I did finish the drawings for the nativity candle tray, but it took me much more time than I anticipated. That’s OK though, because I am happy with the outcome. It just goes with the territory. I had planned on drawing until about noon or so – give or take. But at that point although I had the design done, I still wasn’t quite happy with it. I wanted to keep it simple, but I didn’t want it too simple. Sometimes it is hard to fi...
