30 projects in 30 days #9: week three in pre-view

06-15-2009 04:28 AM by scottb | 5 comments »

I didn’t take on this challenge having to make a project every day, just start and finish 30 of them in 30 days. Well, this week is looking to be rather busy… so I took advantage of the rainy day, and get a few things knocked off. Now I won’t have to sweat it at the end of the day… or have to play catch-up come next weekend. I’ve been on too good of a roll to let things slip now. Fortunately, I’d already glued up a bunch of blocks for rings and such, b...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

09-14-2009 03:39 AM by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...

Not Back Yet

12-01-2009 09:25 PM by Hibernicvs | 1 comment »

I feel like the Great Pink Woodworking Slug. I’ve been so busy at work trying to help make our company viable and writing best-selling (almost 100 copies) books that the only WW I’ve managed is to put together half a dozen book racks … which sit unfinished (in the stain/varnish sense) because I needed them to hold research materials. The writing desk and matching side table are sitting unfinished (in the incompleted sense) in the middle of my living room. About the only t...

Figured I'd sign up...

I’m TERRIBLE… and I mean TERRIBLE and keeping up with blogs, etc. However I figured since I finally caved and registered over here I’d go ahead and use this site to its full potential. Current projects include a linen closet for the wife (Spaced and drilled WAY too many pocket holes for this one… oops!), finishing a 26” diameter bass drum for a friend, airbrushing and finishing another snare for a christian rock band member, and at some point I need to make a ...

Workshop Build #6: Framing

02-24-2010 05:05 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

Finally time to frame the walls! We used 2×6 lumber and 8’ foot lengths for the studs that are 16” OC. These are placed on a 2×6 plate and with two 2×6’s for the top plate. Of course this sits on top of the blocks and so it makes the wall height about 9’. We put the walls up in sections and used the top 2×6 to run across sections to hold them together. We did have anchor bolts that came up from the foundation, through the holes in the blocks an...
