Bench II

05-12-2014 09:15 PM by Jos | 0 comments »

I am building a set of two benches; one for me and, hopefully, a profit bench. The need for the bench is due to a lack of sitting locations to install shoes on my feet. We have a shoeless policy in our home. In one of my earlier project post, I made a simple bench out of treated pine scraps to get an idea of what I was doing before moving on to this build. This project is a skill step up from my previous bench. It has a small bit of shaping added by my 4-1/2” angle grinder usin...

Outdoor Morris Chair #7: Added upper side and trying to fix error

05-01-2011 09:41 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I added the upper sides. They are pretty tricky since you have to do a long cross-cut. The book recommends using a jig saw. Unless you are a lot better than me, I can’t imagine that. I cut through it with the miter saw and finished it up with the table saw. Here’s the result. Now, what to do with the error earlier? I used the miter saw laser and figure the angle is now something like 7 degrees instead of 5 deg. From the previous pic there’s still enough room to get a...

Crib #7: Hangers and final assmebly

04-04-2012 03:02 PM by Ivan | 0 comments »

So I finished the assembly after pre-finishing everything. used West Systems Marine epoxy, I’m pretty sure it’s not coming apart. Finish is shellac. I ran into a DOH moment when I tried to install the matress platform. The rail extensions actually made it so tight that I couldn’t get a hex screw in. Even with the crib all apart the screws just wouldn’t fit. So I went to Home Depot looking for inspiration and a get my butt out of a bind part. Found Cafe Door pivot...

Building boxes #2: Glueing the outside together

01-08-2014 03:54 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

After getting the pieces cut for the box cut out I have got it glued together. It took me long enough to get it square before I could clamp it all together. Is there a good way to make a jig so I don’t have to take so long to play with it getting it squared.

JC4 Journal #7: I thought home ownership was going to be fun...

02-26-2014 09:45 PM by JCMeyersIV | 3 comments »

Hey folks! I’m back. It’s only been months, i know. Let’s just get this out of the way… I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! Hold your applause please, I may be moving out in the next few months if i can’t jump start the business. I guess buying in the fall when business is dead was an awful idea. But in all seriousness, I’m quite excited still. I lived at home for the better part of 26 years. The freedom and privacy is amazing. And having room for all my hunting, hockey...

My Saw Bit Me. Three Times!

11-03-2008 05:34 AM by Eric | 19 comments »

In my video for Woodworking Safety Week 2008, I repeatedly reminded my viewers to keep fingers out of the path or potential path of the blade. Hmm, this gets tricky with a ryoba and two sides of the blade – thus two potential paths. For some reason, this weekend my saw bit me three times. In all three instances, I was holding a board with my left hand and cutting it with my right. When the saw finished its cut, the saw sprung upwards, and the top part of the saw (the rip blade) d...

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
