Church Clock Project #3: Raising The Roof

02-22-2011 06:02 AM by William | 4 comments »

This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...

I have begun to not only appreciate wood but the art of working with it. Because of that I find myself very attracted to the intricacies of it. It’s no longer a piece of wood to me…each piece of wood has become an art piece that is delicately given to us on a daily basis. I’d like to begin a series of this interest and would love feedback and discussions surrounding it! You love wood enough to make a hobby of it…right? Fabulous! However, it is important to learn some simple wood mois...

A journey into the workshop. #63: Some cleanup, and looking up at my ceiling...

08-27-2010 04:05 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

In the process of moving the lumber out of the shop for the fence, I have been doing some desperately needed cleanup, and it amazes me how much, not wood shop related stuff is out of place in my shop. Thus far I have cleaned out or organized the following. #1. Busted radiator, hoses, and clamps off of my Saturn SL2. #2. 8 80# bags of QuickCrete. I am missing 2 in the shop somewhere. #3. A single busted 16 foot piece of Hardisoffit, solid, Cedar mill texture. #4. Shipping box for the Golds...

Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 24 Sanding The Hull..... Again

01-19-2016 09:33 PM by farmerdude | 9 comments »

Not a big update, but an update none the less. First off, it’s going to get cold this week, so wife and I figured we would get in some firewood before it cools down. Second, another one of my foolish mishaps. When we glassed the canoe we moved it down out of the corner to do that end first. Before rolling it back into the corner I picked up all the crap on the floor. Or so I thought. Today I went to roll it out and it didn’t want to move. I got looking it over and found tha...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Bunk Beds: XL Twin over Queen; Cherry and Walnut #3: The rails

12-27-2011 01:04 AM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

Once I milled the rails, I added accent strips top and bottom. The strips are overwide, trued with a flush trim router bit. I revamped the template to fit over the ends of the rails. Somwhere along in here I milled the top and bottom rails for the heads and feet. By now you’ve surmised that there are actually two sets here—two queens, two twins.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1038: My Happy Place

05-20-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

All in all I think I had a pretty good weekend. Lately it seems that I have been scrambled in so many directions that it is sometimes hard to feel like I am accomplishing as much as I should. I have been working on several projects simultaneously, Because of that, it has once again felt as if I was progressing at a snails’ pace. I try not to worry about these feelings that I have had. I should know by now that if I am patient, I will see everything gel and in the end I will have s...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #4: A few more pictures

01-14-2008 08:26 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I finished sanding the exterior portion of the box down to 320 grit. Then applied one coat of mineral oil. Boy did that make the grain standout. I used Mineral Oil because it has no affect on Barb’s allergies. Otherwise it would have to stay out in my shop for a month. The dimensions are, Height = 8” Width = 7” Depth = 4” I’ll add some beeswax, for the final coats. Now to finish making the drawer. The back & front will be entirely diffe...
