Building a Home #1: Alot to Think About

1277 days ago by grainhead | 6 comments »

Living in a not so mobile, mobile home is not fun. The thing is 14’x70’ built in 76. During its age it has seen several hurricanes. During Katrina, which was not a direct hit in my area, A small tornado came through and picked up the home and snapped seventy-five percent of the hurricane straps, then set down 3 inches off. This also caused several wall studs to break. The home was still for the most part still intact, so minor repairs were made, and the foundation was left ...

the humble house workshop #5: LOVIN' IT!!

1797 days ago by kiwi1969 | 5 comments »

Sorry for the dim pic, got a late start to the next project today and just ran out of light. Thats the downside of an open air shop, but I just didn,t realise how dark it was until I couldn,t see my gauge lines! I really just got into a groove with the plane and simply didn,t want to stop. Can,t remember ever feeling that way when I was useing a jointer. Maybe I should of called this post “Pumping iron”. Tommorow, Mortise and tenons cut by hand. Lovin it!!

Which method will work the best?

1189 days ago by nobuckle | 6 comments »

Last summer a friend of mine gave me a small red oak drop leaf table that he had stored in his shed. For him it was a “when I get around to it” project. Well, he never got around to it. When he gave it to me it was in pretty rough shape. The top was starting to separate due to the effects of the environment it was in. The table was partially disassembled so when I got it home I finished the process by removing all the hardware and parts that hold the top to the legs. The le...

Upper Deck #2: Framing

1755 days ago by Zuki | 2 comments »

Saturday I was off to Chester Dawe\Rona for some lumber for the deck. I had to pick through a whole bunch to find some decent stuff. I later remembered that they sell #2 lumber for #1 prices. I normally go to HD, but I needed long stuff and HD did not carry it. My first task was to make a base plate for the 4×4s to rest on. After 5 years the bolts sticking out of the concrete were still good. I figured the tread would be rusted. Here is the base laid in place. I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1198: Moving Right Along

120 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are times such as this when I wish I never had to sleep. I find myself getting so wrapped up in my project that the days seem to pass at the blink of an eye. Yesterday was just like that. I sat at the table in the late morning and began once again working on my painting. Besides writing my blog here, there were some every day chores that I had to finish before I could settle in. (Showering, getting dressed, answering emails, etc.) and I found myself wondering why doing all this s...
