So the brief was that they wanted a place to store all the paper work in the house. Passports, house insurance, car related stuff and all the other paper trails that we must keep hold off.I’ve checked out the room that they want the piece to go into, and they have a rather ugly looking Mahogany table with the computer on it, they have asked if I would try and match this piece. I’ve looked over it so many times and still the piece says to me “Ugly”. So I’m going t...
Okay, after meeting with the city code enforcement / permit office as well as a licensed electrician friend of mine, I am now in the phase of collecting the goodies to get the job done. Once the hardware and supplies are in hand, we will move forward with the project, and it will be done in steps… Step #1. Remove everything from the east wall and ceiling of the shop, meaning all of the shop equipment gets pushed to the southmost and west most corner of the shop, leaving enough room f...
In this episode I cut the sides and shelves to the right length and width.
Wood is the traditional present to celebrate 5 years of happy marriage. With this inspiration I’ve decided to make for us a family dinning table in the same style as the shaker trestle I built in 2008. The timber (from Boutique Timbers) is Tasmania Myrtle (Nothofagus Cunninghamii). I have 6 1” boards of fiddle back, and 6 2” slabs (with faults) to make the project from. The overall style will be the same as the 2008 Blackbutt table. The size is slightly larger 1m ...
I converted my dust collector some time ago and added the Wynn Filter to it. I never new what I should do with that old filter bag. I got a new bloodhound yesterday and she has found a new use for it! It must be comfy because she lays on it all of the time. Ockham’s Razor: Sometimes the simplest solution is the best solution. Now if I could just train her to sweep up at night… cc
I’m new to the web site and I guess I forget a few details about my first project. I found the plans in the American Woodworker Great Book of Woodworking Projects. I made the love seat out of construction grade western red cedar that I purchased at a local Lowes. I finished it with General Finishes Outdoor Oil. Thanks for the positive feedback. More projects in the works. I hope to post more really soon!
This thing is covered in glue and rust but I am making progress – what a mess!! Motor is going to repair shop – I don’t do electrical. Hoping its the start capacitor…all the other tools that came with this 100.00 purchase work fine but the bandsaw are not user friendly at all.
I just wrapped up my first experience as an exhibitor at a woodworking show- the Hamilton Woodworking Show in Hamilton, Ontario, about 45 minutes from Toronto airport. It was a great experience, a little smaller than I thought (they say the number of exhibitors was down this year), but my pouches were well received. The most popular one was the original plywood pouch, I think it’s a pouch most woodworkers can use. It holds several sheets of 3/4” plywood, but you can use it for ...
Over this past week, I took some time off from work (because the weather was going to be insanely nice, Hallelujah!) and worked around the house and shop. I didn’t spend all my time on the renovation but I did put in quite a bit of time out there. I tinkered with the CNC (aka Duchess. Don’t ask. Ok, go ahead, ask.)and got the vacuum foot attached and tested. I’ll get a video and some shots of it up real soon. As you can see from the shots, I have everything, except ...
Is anyone out there interested in assisting in building shadow boxes & cutting boards(or anything else) that will be sold for charity at the Our Forgotten Warriors concert in September? This is just something I have come up with over the past few days so I don’t have much of anything going yet. This is mainly to see if there is enough interest to make it viable. Anyone is welcome to assist, we can work out the logistics as we go. I have become very involved with an incredible org...
