Well is was a good day for working outside. A little cloudy, a little sunny, a few drizzles, but nothing to make it unbearable. I failed to take pictures of the straight bench being made, but, here it is. The seat is 14 1/2” wide (4 – 1X4’s) The straight bench was designed as 5’ long, but then trimmed to final fitting. So it’s a little longer as sitting here. The legs are 2X4’s 17” long with a 3” rail at top and bottom with 1 1/2”...

There are times when you have to put everything else aside and do something more important. I have a cat—- this cat——- There are three things this cat knows for sure. One is when I’m coming with the flea drops – she runs like mad. Second – she knows when I have chicken and runs to me fast. And third – when I have a camera. I don’t think I have a decent picture of her. Callie is 21 and is fast approaching the end of her 9th l...
My next project is something some might consider silly, but basically its going to be an entertainment center that will be built as a facade in front of my gas fireplace. Hey, in 7 years i’ve never once used the thing and I need a better place to put my 60” bigscreen TV. This is not to mention the TV currently hangs off both ends of the stand it sits on now.
Please excuse the double negative in the title but it is the most accurate way of stating my point. I’ll admit that much of my wood knowledge comes from The New Yankee Workshop, so I base my concepts of what tools are most useful on what I see used there. I don’t always see the usefulness of many of tools if I don’t see Norm use them But now I must confess that there are two tools for which I now have a new appreciation of there immense usefulness. 1) A low angle blo...
My wife and I are finally setting about finishing up our kitchen. We haven’t had a kitcen sink for about 3 months because we haven’t had any cabinets. You can’t blame this on me, however, because she wanted her office before her kitchen so I had to make the office desk first. The first step was to design the lower cabinets. I wanted to have a unique set of cabinets, but still have some traditional elements. The cabinets have posts at all the corners and any major transi...

First I wish to embarrass myself – the following picture is of the garage storage area that came with my house: My wife and I have organized and re-organized that shelf so many times but it always becomes a collecting place for junk. So, I am going to replace that wall with the locker and cabinets on the left side of this sketchup drawing: To get from the wall of horror to the neat cabinet wall first requires that I rip out the existing shelving and that will happen when w...
Wow, I thought I was getting spammed when I saw all the LJ e-mails after I joined, but it was just folks being friendly. You guys are sort of a Wood Welcome Wagon. Thanks and I look forward to learning!
If you like adventure, you like life. When I was a kid, my mom used to take us 3 kids Fort Cobb Lake, OK. Every weekend, we’d leave Friday evening, arrive 90 minutes later, upack and miss Saturday morning cartoons from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. We’d pitch a tent for the summer – park rangers would watch it. We swam, played cards, etc. My favorite thing was walking through the woods and weeds around the lake as far from the normal camping areas as possi...
