Well its been a while but I have got back in the shop. My time has been busy with my grandson and 2 senior girls. Sorry to have been away for so long. Oh I am not going to lie my motorcycle has taking a lot of my time 2. And I do mean a lot of my time. Me and the wife have toured 3 states.But I have squeezed in some shop time. More will come because the cold is coming in. So a few pics on some of the stuff I have been doing.A small benchShe is a solid 3 inches thick. And gets my joinery up...
Does anyone know where I can buy “blue stained white pine”. In or near Illinois?Thank You.
I neglected to take photos of the copious amounts of sanding that followed the initial shaping. There was some chisel action in there but not too much. Visited carbatec in sydney last weekend and picked up a spoon plane thinking that it might help clean up the inside. Total bust, maybe I was using it incorrectly but it just didn’t want to work very well at all. At least it was only $26! Picture in your mind a beardy man with dustmask and eye protection wielding an angle grinder wi...
Hi all, Hope all is well. I know christmas is over, but I thought I would share with the christmas gifts I made for my family. This video was made 3 days before Christmas. The Video is a step by step process of me building wooden clocks. I got the clock kits from my local Woodcraft.This makes a great gift for anyone and does not have to be for Christmas. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPh0C1nt8Zg&feature=channel_video_title Thanks, Michael FreyPortland, OR FREY WOODWORKING...
Saturday… 0630… In the car heading to Lowe’s for the last few items needed to make the piece of my garage a real shop. Kind of like Pinocchio wanting to be a real boy – my 1/3 of the 3-car garage WANTS to be a woodshop, and I am the maker, Geppetto, who has been carefully, slowly (too slow) making that piece of the garage into a shop. Rich, my neighbor across the street, and, a “sheetrock guy” by trade, has offered to help my little piece of heaven becom...
It’s been a pretty dead week on CL, My auctions are ending today & tomorrow so I decided to look at a couple local yard sales. After about an hour I was driving by probity the last yard sale before heading home when I spotted what looked like a couple old hand saws leaning against a tree. when I walked up to the saws and elderly gentleman approached me and said ” you like the old ones?”... After talking to him for a while he took me to the good stuff, An old hand made bo...
Been banging on this in Sketchup, but I am coming up with nothing… Here’s my problem, maybe the good folks at LJs can help me figure this out… I have a canoe, 14’ 6” from bow to stern. It presently lives covered up under a tarp across 2 sawhorses. UV is getting to the tarp, and I do NOT want it getting to the hull of my plastic boat… So what to do? I have pondered this before, and I am going to again to see if I can get some ideas here… So he...
Well after a few computer issues, the long awaited part 2 of this project is here. I’m a good woodworker, not so much a good PC tech guy..lol So with the help of some true computer gurus, I was able to render this video, get it uploaded and out to you… given the size of the video, I added a Part 3 to this series which will be the conclusion of the project. Be sure to stop by the website A Simple Design of Ocala or find me on Facebook
I just started fooling around yesterday and this was the result. I painted it red before I went to Michaels and got some acrylic paint and some small brushes. I put this together then painted it. I wasn’t planning on doing much more than just making it, but one thing let to another. I do plan to make more of these, but I think I’ll paint that trim before I assemble it. I like to do all kinds of different one of a kind styles with these and none of them are official birdhouses, som...
Hello,I found the best find ever in my life. I found a Delta Homecraft 10” Bandsaw in an alleyway cast away near a “free” sign. I thought to myself, “That bandsaw deserves better and I took it home.There she is in her miskept beauty. On of the things that really pecks my brain is the stand. It says, “Property of CC Wakefield & Co. Ltd.” on it. Charles Cheers Wakefield is the founder of C.C.Wakefield & Co(Now known as Castrol). What’s weird is ...
