52 Weeks #45: A Pen Type of Weekend

1015 days ago by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Yep put together and made a number of pens this weekend starting on Friday after work. But before I get into that I mentioned last week that I had some glue ups drying in the shop for some shop items. I know nothing spectacular, just some 2×4s with holes drilled with a forstner bit. But oh so handy; the small one is attached via pocket holes to my mobile workstation by the drill press. My hope is not to lose the toothbrush and pencils as often. The larger one is a bit more advance...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #544: That's How the Cookie Crumbles

1000 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Christmas is definitely in the air! Little by little I am getting ready for the holiday season. I used to get everything decorated and finished up all at once, but I am kind of liking doing things gradually as time permits. Each day it seems a little more festive that way as we approach the big day. That way too is a lot less pressure and mess. Yesterday I spent the morning wrapping and packaging the calendar pieces to send to the magazine for publication. Keith also had a project head...

Coffee table with chess board and ice basin for beer #1: Design

971 days ago by oi2342001 | 0 comments »

This is a project my friend and I have been talking about for a while. Between both our schedules it’s been tough being able to actually start this and it will take a while to complete as well. The design we are going to use is something that my friend came up with, it’s his table after all ;). Today we drew up a rough sketch and picked up some maple and cherry for the top. The idea is to have a table top with a removable chessboard in the center. Underneath will expose an ice ...

Smokeless Motor

Couple of weeks ago I told you that I’d lost all the smoke in the motor for my bandsaw.After I got the new motor installed I took the old one apart.Here’s what it looked like - The motor did not have a thermal overload so it fried the information plaque.I think the squiggles are some smoke that never made it.

Dafting table

934 days ago by DonR | 1 comment »

a week ago I won a Hamilton Drafting table in a surplus auction from my local university, since then I have been sanding my hands off to re finish it. The biggest challenge has been the drawing surface. it had been used in a machine shop and had many straight line cuts in it as well as a number of pits and chips from machined metal parts. I have now done three applications of joint compound to fill these cuts and dips and am happy with the surface. I have sanded it down to a 320 grit and will...

More Free Wood This Morning.

923 days ago by Trev_Batstone | 6 comments »

A friend of mine arranged to meet me for coffee this morning at our usual coffee meet location. When I arrived in the parking lot and pulled up beside his pickup, he said “Open your trunk” and he loaded a couple of armfulls of wood into my car. The two bottom pieces are 8/4×4” solid walnut about 32” in length. The other pieces are 1/2” x 3” slats, also walnut. He said he was doing a cleanup in his shop to make room for his new motorcycle that wi...

I went to see a man named Jim today about some walnut. The wood is cut from his own property, milled and kiln dried. I got about 5 7’x11” and a 1.5” thick 7’ x 12” plus 4 thick slices of walnut with great grain about 4’ x 18” which will make great coffee tables, and a piece of 3’ wood, forget the type with excellent grain a neat check, and countersunk bark in the middle which should make a great table with some glass over it. All for about $180...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #1: Planning and Design

899 days ago by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

I have two kids, both girls. They are four and a half and two and a half, and have since accumulated lots of stuff that takes up lots of space. My 8’ x 10’ shed outside is already full to capacity. A lot of its floor space is taken up by the kids’ bikes/trikes, motorized Jeep, wagon, etc. I decided I need more storage outside. But instead of making it just another shed, I thought it would be more useful to make it primarily a playhouse that doubles as a shed for the...
