Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube

I was going to post this back at xmas but never got to it and just came accross the pics again. So better late then never right?? We just bought this house spring 2013 very old victorian built in 1903 “A dream come true for both me and my wife” but as old houses go there is a lot of upkeep and modernizing that needs to be done to say the least. So first on the list was to get ductwork to the second floor since there was only main floor ducts. We got a flyer in the mail for ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1832: Progress Report

04-24-2017 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am trying to keep my promise to myself to get back to posting when I have made progress on some of my projects. With that said, I had a pretty productive weekend and wanted to share some of what I did with you all. I spent most of Saturday working up in my shop. I had some orders to go out, and I have a large project that I am working on with another artist that I want to stay on top of and chip away at gradually. That way, by working it in with my other work, I hardly notice the time ...

Modern Computer Desk #9: Applying the finish

04-29-2017 02:18 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

We wanted a smooth, non-shiny finish, so Danish oil (Watco natural) fit the bill. Before applying the oil, I sanded all surfaces using progressively finer grits, ending with 280 grit. To apply the oil, I followed the procedure in the YouTube video How to Apply Danish Oil, by Fabian's Tiny Workshop. He demonstrates the process very clearly. The only thing I did differently was apply the oil with a gray abrasive pad (similar to gray Scotch-Brite, I think) instead of a paper towel. That le...

Rocket Bookcase #10: Detail Painting...

06-05-2014 02:38 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

NOTE: for some reason, the images keep getting jacked up on this entry. So I’ll just the text. If you want to see the images, click here and see my blog. I got back to work on the painting today after a week or so of bad weather. It helped a lot that Mom was in town and kept the kids occupied 24/7 (hey, when grandparents are around, mom and dad become chopped liver – I have learned to embrace this blessing!) Started to add the black detail stripes today. Here’s th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1380: Circling the Wagons

08-12-2014 11:49 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was glad to finally be able to go to bed last night. There are times when the best part of some days are when they are over. As difficult as it was for me though, I realize that others had it much harder. I found no comfort in that thought, but it did keep me from settling into feeling sorry for myself or worrying about what will come next. After all – how could I allow myself that indulgence while there were still so many options available? I simply didn't.They say that people sh...

Expressing Love Through Woodworking #1: Baking Pies

10-21-2014 04:47 AM by nomercadies | 3 comments »

Once upon a time there was a woman that loved to bake pies. She baked pies for years and years growing up, through her married life for her husband, for her children. She loved baking pies. There were all kinds of complements throughout the years as she got better and better at her craft. When she was just a little girl the “baking bug” bit her and it never let go. One of the things she loved most about baking pies was the feeling of giving love to those she loved. Her pies were mad...

What to look for when purchasing a great table saw

11-13-2014 01:53 PM by PowerToolsPlanet | 0 comments »

One of the many pieces of equipment that you’ll want to buy as a homeowner, no matter how long you’ve owned your home, is that of a table saw. At first glance you may not know what to do with one of these, but if you sit down and think about it, you could use it for a wide number of projects. In fact, millions of projects become possible if you simply have this in place. From cutting, sanding, and a variety of other little things, you could have a great deal of power in your garage if you sim...
