Murphy Bed #3: Part 3

04-18-2009 04:12 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

I spent a couple of hours going over a suggestion that maybe I should make the bed outer case deeper so I can make the cabinets deeper so I got out the cutlist program and put in the new numbers and no matter what I came up with I was at least one sheet of plywood short. We choose Mahogany for this project and at $73.00 a sheet along with a 100 mile round trip to get it we just went back to the original plans. So off I went and using my new Gorilla Gripper carried the 1st sheet over to ...

dw's shop tips #4: Remove a rusted nut on all threads.

09-16-2013 01:01 AM by Don W | 13 comments »

I had to remove the adjuster on a threaded post from a #71. Here is how I did it. The bolt was rusted solid and would not move. I had soaked it in penetrating oil for a while (almost a week) but it still didn’t want to move. I could heat it, but I’d still have to hold on the threads. So I cut a piece of aluminum flashing. I folded the flashing and clamped it in the vice. The aluminum will not hurt the threads but will hold it tight. This is a knurled nut so an...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)

Mother & daughter toolbox #5: We are a lot further along!

06-13-2014 03:03 PM by ejvc | 4 comments »

My daughter had the brilliant idea of moving all the tools from where the workbenches are, out in the barn attic, to where the giant plywood table is, in the shop in the basement. So I went with it, and we’ve spent some time now finishing up our toolbox. Oh, it is badly constructed. Very badly. It is the opposite of a thing of beauty. And, it is far too heavy for a six-year old. But it is actually done! It is painted pink and red and has her name on the side, and the tools all fi...

01-14-2014 04:35 AM by woodworker59 | 5 comments »

Didn’t want anyone to think I had left for parts unknown, can’t say I haven’t thought of it a few hundred times… I can not remember ever living in such a dark place for this long.. I could really just start hurting people,and that’s the old me…the me that people would cross the street to avoid, don’t want to go back there, not a nice place.. So I don’t want to drag anyone down with me, nor do I want to start screaming about stuff, I just want t...

My woodworing ideas and tips #2: Fixing small opps....

06-29-2008 06:22 AM by Betsy | 12 comments »

OK—- so here’s my first tip. I was reminded of this little tip when I saw a similar little “defect” on my bed rail. So let’s suppose, just to humor me, that you have been commissioned to build a new royal throne for Queen Elizabeth. And not only that, but you’ve been given the grand honor and immense responsibility to build this new throne out of the last remaining piece of Transalvanian Ugbuga wood. This is a very rare wood indeed. Can’t screw thi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1402: Busy Days are the BEST!

09-13-2014 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me know that my favorite season is quickly approaching. While I enjoy summer and even winter, I always think that autumn is the best time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love the colors and crispness in the air. I also love seeing the beautiful foliage and colors that the season brings.I have many fond memories of this time of year. I always enjoyed school, as it was once again an opportunity to reconnect with friends that I missed seeing over the summer...

A journey into the workshop. #50: What's on the bench...

03-18-2010 06:45 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

I need to get busy, I have several simultaneous projects started, and needing to be completed. So far those projects have been getting, well… Less than enough attention. The projects currently waiting to be completed are… #1. Advent Candle holder. No real rush for obvious reasons, but really needs to get done and out so I can clear a project off my bench. #2. Redo of my drill press table. As those that actually regularly read my blog remember, I really hosed up my first atte...
