Entertainment Center #7: The Finale

10-18-2011 02:54 PM by Marc | 3 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. The entertainment center is finished! Yep, you read that correctly. It’s all done. After completing construction last time, all that was left to do was mount the hardware, stain the top and base, and then cover everything with polyurethane…

lumberjocks to the rescue?

06-30-2010 03:56 PM by noknot | 9 comments »

I was talking to lilredweldingrod the other day about doing some sort of group project or something when it hit me at 2:00 in the morning how about doing a charity deal where we (jocks) make stuff and sell it at a fundraiser for a kids charity. Im thinking makeawish foundation or childrens hospital, toys for tots. Tell me what you think!

Workbench drawers

02-02-2015 01:47 AM by John Lowell | 4 comments »

Wanted to use up some material, improve storage and add weight to the bench. So, used MDF for carcas, Baltic birch for drawer sides and 1/2 in melamean for bottoms. Got through the first two coats of poly, almost done. Need to get the pulls, perhaps next weekend.

hello again #10: I hope I can stay on this time

11-19-2009 11:47 PM by Jim Earl | 7 comments »

Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days. I have not started back smoking yet, and it is still hard. The last one I had was on May 6, 2009, and still going. ok I’ll let you all go and will keep in touch more often. Your LJ friend, Jim

Bandsaw Bowl

01-02-2010 04:29 PM by PG_Zac | 0 comments »

Yes BOWL not BOX. My first project for 2010. I’ve wanted a lathe for a very long time (ever since I trained in a metal workshop), but haven’t had the free funds to justify the purchase. Many LJ’s are very inventive, so I thought I’d have a go at something new – a Bandsaw Bowl. It was actually quite easy to achieve, but I’m stuck on how to finish the item. Should I use oil? varnish? something else? All ideas would be welcomed. Here is the bowl d...

Safety first...a story about that

03-30-2008 08:56 PM by Shopsmithtom | 13 comments »

I was reading “Safety tip # 97, never wear flip-flops” and it got me thinking about a safety related experience I had a while back. It didn’t happen in the work shop, but I think it’s still worth telling. I was doing some re-bricking at the top of my chimney and rigged up a rope, bucket and pulley system to get the bricks to the peak of the roof & the top part of my chimney. I would put the bricks in the bucket and hoist them up to the top and then tie off the r...

a grumpy ol' screwdriver, and a good day in the shop

03-05-2007 03:39 AM by scottb | 8 comments »

In working out the details for the new and improved screwdrivers, I spotted this piece of maple, just hanging out on the lathe. Yes Frank it spoke to me… a screwdriver it wanted to be… Yes a rustic maple 6-in-1 screwdriver, perfect for the winters gloved hands! Apparently this hasn’t changed its outlook on life yet, so this is gonna go for a spin once the epoxy has cured a bit, and see if I can’t change its demeanor. Meanwhile, as far as repairing ...

SHadow Box End table advice #1: Shadow Box End table Advice

Hey All! I need to build an end table with top being a military shadowbox. I’m building it for a retirement of an active duty air force members husband with over 30 years in service to his country. I’ve never built one so I was hoping I might be able to get some ideas on how to design/accomplish this one! Thanks for your help! KP

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #859: Readying for the Storm

10-29-2012 09:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Even though we don’t have TV, it is hard to get away from the talk of the impending storm that is heading up the east coast today. While we are not in its direct path, being on the west side of Nova Scotia leaves us in an area of concern and we are preparing for its arrival. I want to thank everyone who has emailed me and sent messages, checking in to see how we are doing. While I don’t anticipate any big trouble, living in a rural area we may experience a gap in communicatio...
