Commissioned Church Side Altars Complete!

2630 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 25 comments »

I am so excited this morning. Why you ask? I’m complete with the St. Anthony Church Side Altar commission project. I have more work to do on other pieces for the church by the end of the month. So, there isn’t much time to take a breath yet, but the completion of the Side Altars is a huge milestone for me, and my woodworking career. To be honest, there were some times that I wondered if I would ever get all of the details of these Altars complete. Total working time is a...

'This Old Crack House' #47: The Addiition part two...Build it and I am moving........

2563 days ago by Dusty | 8 comments »

Part Two…. The overall building experience of the addition was rather uneventful. Common problems like material shortages, delays in delivery, and the routine problems with such things and poor quality lumber are just a given for any project. Certainly the missing special-order floor truss and gable end rafter was frustrating but predictable in the course of any construction project. The more building and remodeling I do, the more I expect and prepare for these events. Simply...

2530 days ago by frank | 9 comments »

Workshop Principles ….taking time out, as i waundered home after the days work, is an intoxicating drink of heady ale, where those who stop and drink can soon get lost in an-other time and era….And it is in these places where I oft do stop, to taste my dreams and set them free….so I invite you to come along and lets cover some ground in these forest of trees where ones, such as I can still dwell. These were taken around 7:00 pm the other night as I was coming in from a...

auto vacuum for my miter saw

2493 days ago by joey | 2 comments »

Well I got myself out in the shop lined up the fence for the miter saw and leveled it to the bench. I also drilled and ran the vacuum hoses to the saw, at first I wasn’t sure what to use to connect the hose to the saw but 1 1/2 PVC pipe works fine with a couple of wraps of duct tape to snug it up I placed a small vacuum that I use to use to clean out cabinets after I installed them under my bench, it is small enough that it really don’t take to much room and is a powerful l...

Breaking the 1000 Post Barrier, without Electricity. What?

2414 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 29 comments »

I finally made it. I remember the sweeeeet days when I was the number one posting member of the LJ community. I even won the first issuing of LJ t-shirts for active participation from Martin. And then, I was 2nd, and I tried to keep up. Then, I was 3rd, and then 4th, and 5th, and no matter how much I scrambled, I kept falling further and further behind. Don’t get me wrong, I’m just trying to be funny, in my dry, not-funny, style. I am so glad that this community is gro...

Office/Guest room. #1: Designing block

2388 days ago by Aubster | 7 comments »

Hello everyone, My wife and I have been designing our office in a way that we hope will fit our needs and server as a guest room for our kids when they come to visit. When we got the news that we are becoming first time grandparents, we quickly changed some of the design a bit and got started on it right away. We drew this up in Skecthup and liked it because it met many of our needs. < The top will accommodate a full size bed so that it is not too big, but can sleep two people ...

The Tool Gathering Odessy #10: Been a While...but worth the wait

2348 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

It’s been a little while since I posted in this series, but it’s oh-so-worth the wait in my humble opinion. I have goodies aplenty to share with one and all. First, the obligatory Norvell Shapleigh tool. This one is a smoother hand plane. I can’t really call it a #4 or a #4 1/2 either. It’s length is halfway between the two, so I call it a #4 1/4 instead. Actually, it’s a #4 1/4C since the sole is corrugated. Sorry in advance for the crumby picture. Hopef...

17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room #5: Farther down the wall

2326 days ago by woodwkr | 5 comments »

Below the coffered panels are the skirt panels. These were in better shape than the coffered panels and had a “rope” mould along the top edge. The rope mould was mostly new construction, ( poorly done ) and was replaced with new mould that I ran and distressed. It started to look like this was at least the second installation of these panels because some of them were cobbled together and mis-matched. It became easy to find where they originally belonged, because their length match...
