Crown molding technique

10-19-2007 11:55 PM by A.W. "Pappy" Ford | 5 comments »

Just thought I’d throw this out there:PlansNow.Com released a PDF document today on a technique to build up composite crown molding. Makes it very easy to see how such a beautiful result is achieved. They usually release one technique article and one free plan per week to their email newsletter subscribers, such as last week’s 15 tips for sanding success.

Tonight I forged ahead with making the bottom groove and the groove for the lid. So now LJer’s – 70 some folks have looke...

2X4 Winter Contest #1: The beginning

01-07-2008 04:16 AM by Jamie | 4 comments »

Well, I started working on my 2×4 project today. Last weekend I picked up a bunch of 2×4’s at Lowes to construct a new lumber rack, with 1 to spare for the contest. I was a little afraid that one 2×4 wouldn’t be enough to complete the project, but it looks like I will have a few scraps left. I cut some of the pieces today, 4 – 18” long pieces have been jointed and edge-glued together to form one plank (needed it to be a little longer than what is r...

Large picture frame commission.

02-15-2008 10:41 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

In this blog I thought you lumberjocks would be interested in seeing the whole process that I go thru when doing this picture frame commission. This is the picture that the owner wanted a carved frame for. As you can see by the photo the picture is out of the frame and I was able to take the frame with me so I could make the new frame the proper size for the picture. The new frame will be 3’-6” +- X 6’-6” +- so this is as large a frame I will have did to date. ...

Learning experience

03-30-2008 05:51 PM by restowood | 6 comments »

When we recently moved we found that an oak upholstered chair had gotten mold on the upholstery from being in the garage. I had it sitting out in the garage and the other day I decided I would “fix” it. It had a southwestern themed upholstery on it and it had a back brace that had a southwestern style cut in it. I took off the upholstery and got it down to the frame. At this point I thought about disassembling the chair and using it as a guide to build one from scratch (I should h...

So, after working with a few battery powered tools and some very basic hand tools, I convinced my girlfriend that I could be much more productive, efficient, and accurate with a table saw. The only thing missing now was money… Being low on funds and “in the right place at the right time” I was given an old and very poorly maintained Delta Contractor saw from a friend who’s father recently passed away. In my excitement to get it back to the house and clean it up(th...

Bandsaw Adventure #5: Set-up

06-26-2008 05:34 AM by Hrolfr | 9 comments »

I unboxed the saw an with help from my father on Sunday got the saw body attached and the riser block installed. My wife’s birthday was Tuesday, so my family took us out to dinner then did the cake and presents thing at my Wife and my house. (hence how I got my father to come help me). The saw sat mostly together on Monday night as friends of our recently became parents and they wanted a night out with the baby “McLovin” ( I love my friends) and we are the most laid bac...

Constructing "Old 99" #12: Spacing the wheels

09-04-2008 12:40 PM by MrWoody | 2 comments »

It’s time we start gluing up some of the parts we have made. I drilled the 1/8” hole in the ends of the cylinders and glued a 3 1/2” piece of dowel in. I glued the rest of the wheels on to the base using a spacer to allow them to ride on the rails. NOTE: The larger drive wheels are not glued at this time. I glued the front and rear assemblies to the base. I used a piece of packaging plastic with a slot cut in it between the assembly and base. This allowed me to pound the axle pi...
