This is my first woodworking project. Learned a lot on the forum so far and am to a point where I need some advice. I’m a big DIY guy and a home brewer. I’ve decided to build a bar that will hold a chest freezer underneath which will hold about 8 kegs of my home brew. I purchased 2 live edge cedar slabs about 8’ long that will be book matched for the bar top, the draft/tap tower will be made from a hollowed out cedar log, and the siding is going to be done with book matched ...
Here is the project I am in the process of making for my students.I have been upskilling myself on sketch up. Still need to dimension etc but these are my efforts for about 7 hours work.
I started a new management job yesterday, and that of course is exciting! I will be managing a ‘fleet’ of contractors who deliver pharmaceuticals in and around central NY. This is all well and good, but I’m still a week away from leaving my bus driver’s job. I put in my notice for next friday, and this morning I’m wishing it was already Friday. I want to be out of there for two reasons, the new job has a great amount of flexibility in the hours I will be working...
I’d like to share these with everyone. I was able to snap some quick pictures today of my great grandfather’s tool chests. Both of these haven’t been touched much in the 50 years since he died, if it all. Judging by the layer of dust on the one with the two saws in the lid, i’d go with “not at all”. He sharpened handsaws in his older age. When he was younger, during the 20’s I believe, he worked at a shipyard in the Hudson Valley and as a house b...
A few weeks ago I traveled back east for Memorial Day and to bring home some of my Dad’s things from his old shop. His cabinet bench is a real treasure to me and its nice to have it here in my shop now. http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-long-road-home.html What are your prized treasures that have been handed down from that special person who started you on the woodworking path?
I am helping a neighbor build a milling table from 8/4 hickory. This table is for milling grain to brew beer. I will keep posting images as we progress.
I scavenged this piece of Huon Pine from a renovation some time ago, we were pulling out some old cupboards and doors. Its the bottom panel from a door and if you check my Door what door? Blog you will see it there. Size was 620 mm x 450 mm x 10mm There was about eight layers of paint/varnish on each side. With a half sheet sander and 4 x sheets of 40 grit I set to work The A side in progress The B Side I didn’t take a in progress shot The A side finishe...
If you read my project post “Aurora’s Lunch Caddy” you may have picked up on the weeping Black Dye problem I encountered.Well MarkwithaK responded and directed me to an other product FROGTAPE. So I checked it out on the net, not only did I find the tape I also saw some chevron tape as well both of which I would be interested to “Test Out” I found Masters (an Ozzie version of Lowes) stock the product so I hopped off to purchase some.Well sure enough there...
I’m looking to make a replacement blade for a hollow auger. I know the blade is one inch wide. I do not know thickness or length as the auger has not arrived yet. If anyone has one of these hollow augers, could they post a photo of the blade? Also, I would be interested to know if anyone knows of a source for these blades. I am assuming one will have to be made but it does not hurt to ask. Example of what the blade looks like.
Well it’s been quite a while since I wrote an entry for this but I figured I would share the finished product. I hadn’t needed to use my router throughout the summer on most of the projects I was working on so it basically sat as a cabinet with a top that housed my miter saw. When I built my tapering jig though it came down to me needing to finish this up so that it could be put to good use. I positioned the router plate exactly where I needed it and then cut some pieces of MDF...
