10,000 Hours #9: My bench is finally complete (pic's included)

04-18-2015 03:55 PM by LucasWoods | 3 comments »

00,011 / 10,000 It has been awhile since my last blog post I have had some long days and work and finals for my two college courses I am taking. Anyways my bench ins finally complete! Over the past two weeks I slowly worked towards getting my bench vice installed, the wood faces for the vice. Just last night I drilled my dog holes. I still need to chamfer the edges on them but I am ready to put my bench to work! I put in about two hours of work on my bench since my last post which brings m...

Fireplace Mantel

06-16-2010 04:54 PM by Cato | 6 comments »

I am so slow when doing a project for the first time. Good thing about this one is that I have gotten to play with my new jointer, planer, and cut some crown for the first time on the Makita LS 1016L sliding miter saw. Building upside down and backwards has been a challenge in visualizing for me. Used furniture grade SYP from the lumberyard except the 5.25 inch oak crown that I bought at big box store. All that is left is to mount over the fireplace in my daughter’s townhouse t...

I Get to Spend Money!

03-26-2011 12:11 AM by RandyMorter | 7 comments »

Here’s my first LJ blog… I got my new (to me) Craftsman 221240 table saw last weekend. It was kind of a surprise to get it – a friend of mine wanted to get rid of it, at a very reasonable price, due to a divorce. I just couldn’t pass it up so 2 weekends ago I went to look at it, last weekend it was delivered. I hadn’t been planning to buy any more gear, so since last weekend I haven’t had any expectations of more gear. Nor did I expect to buy much of ...

Grave Marker for Old Rusty!

03-13-2009 09:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 12 comments »

The same friend I had made the Gavel for, dropped by the other day. He asked me if I would carve Old Rusty’s name on this cross for him. Old Rusty had passed away one year ago on this very day, & he was missing his old buddy. It was quite a coincidence, Rusty died on my birthday in 2008. After I got started on it, I thought it would be nice to do a relief carving of Rusty. He was a Golden Retriever, so I asked my friend if he had any good pictures of Rusty. He didn...

Upcoming projects and designs. #7: Thoughts on scrap wood. The Hurricane Ike damaged fence saga continues...

06-18-2010 05:28 PM by dbhost | 9 comments »

Well, the few remaining rot free 2×4s from my old fence that blew down in hurricane Ike have finally been stripped clean and stacked neatly. But what to do with 26 year old sun bleached pressure treated 2×4s? There’s not a straight stick to be found here, and who knows WHAT they used in PT back in the mid 1980s. I HATE to just throw out usable wood, but I also hate the idea of holding on to potentially dangerous junk. So for now, it sits. Most likely to be taken to the curb...

Dirt, a lot of dust and rust, and some missing parts. The initial work was unassembly the entire machine, to c...

Upcoming projects and designs. #16: Considering design requirements for planter boxes / cages.

05-05-2011 06:17 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

LOML and I are enjoying fresh grown herbs and vegetables that my FIL is growing in small batches, and we wanted to try our hand at growing some of our own. However we have a young dog, who tends to dig and romp on everything he isn’t blocked from, not to mention birds, and rabbits that come into the yard from the bayou. (No gators thank God…) I would like to build either raised / enclosed planters, OR a floorless greenhouse / screen house for a small garden herb / vegetable gar...

Update to woodspotting

03-06-2014 04:11 PM by siavosh | 5 comments »

It’s been a couple of month since I built woodspotting.com. It grew out of the frustration of current RSS readers, and the tiresome aspect of opening 20+ woodworking blogs to see if they had new content. Today, the site gets a regular and growing number of visitors, and tracks more than 100+ woodworking blogs (and growing). It hopefully sends some more traffic to the blog authors and encourages them to keep posting fresh content. Also personally, woodspotting.com saves me a lot of time ...

Hope Chest #1: Hope Chest

04-22-2009 07:22 PM by ManofStone | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, I am a beginner in woodworking. I have made a couple of mantle clocks courtesy of a Wood Craft class. I am now attempting to make a Hope Chest for my daughter’s 16th birthday. The exterior is cedar and the base is Paduak(sp?). I made plugs of Paduak to cover the screws. To gain some weight and solidity I placed a piece of 3/4” plywood at the bottom. The interior is covered in aromatic cedar. I am now trying to find a good finish for it. I have experimented with ...
