Entertainment Center #2: The Carcass Revisited

05-02-2011 02:04 AM by Marc | 0 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. Well, some four and a half months ago I started building a proper entertainment center for our basement. I have now been told if the entertainment center isn’t finished by June my wife will be going out and buying one, so I am back at it. If you check out the first post for this project you may look at these ...

Workshop Development #102: Project planning on how to eat an elephant.

04-21-2014 08:16 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

The blogger entry is here for those that want to see the graphics and the nitty gritty details… Plenty to be found there… Right now, being somewhat time constrained with other priorities, and as other projects are ongoing, I am squeezing in design time, and planning to complete what is left of my shop storage / organization tear as it were. I am working on fine tuning the details, but ...

I'm looking for an answer to my problem

11-15-2014 05:31 PM by NH_Hermit | 11 comments »

I need some help. I made my wife a frame for her embroidery that she can use while sitting on the couch. Right now, I have it designed so she can position the working frame in any direction her pea pickin’ heart desires. The only problem she has is the position of the arms will not hold when she puts some weight on the frame, no matter how much she tightens the bolts. I think I know the solution, but don’t know what to call it or where to find it. I think I want ...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #4: Day 4

07-15-2010 04:17 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Not a whole lot of visual activity today. It was mostly a day of sanding and a couple glue ups. Just one of those days where you put the iPod on and let your mind wander as you go through the monotony of hand sanding all the parts before the glue up. Except I forgot mine today so I just had to sit there and listen to the swish swish swish. Once sanded, I glued up both sides of the chair as sub-assemblies. While these were drying I finished shaping and sanding my front rail. I’m par...

Oak Tree to Shave Horse #2: A little more progress

11-16-2014 02:50 AM by NinjaAssassin | 0 comments »

I had a little time today to get some work done on the shave horse. I didn’t take any pictures while working as I was trying to make the most of the little bit of time I had but I did get a couple pictures once I finished up for the day. So, I started by taking the other half of the split log and cutting that about in half to be used as the platform ramp thing that the work will be clamped against (I don’t know what this piece is called). I used my carpenters axe to angle the...

A 2nd Holtzapffel and last (Maybe)

12-04-2009 07:18 AM by kckevin | 4 comments »

I was half drafted and half volunteered to build another Holtzapffel workbench. The Guild I belong to, The KAnsas City Woodworkers’ Guild, was in need of a workbench for presentations. With Marc Adams coming to town Dec. 4th, 5th, & 6th, One was needed post haste. It took me two months, working a few hours a week to get it to a usable condition. What I ended up doing was leading a workshop for others to build their own bench. With original 5 people signed up I expected help with the...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: They call it labor day for a reason....

09-06-2010 10:14 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto… First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out. Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be. Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed i...

A journey into the workshop. #86: Cleaning up, and getting back to putting the shop in order.

08-15-2013 04:32 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

During the whole rip the walls down, add insulation and power thing, my shop became a total mess, then came a few nasty bouts of sickness that kept me out of the shop for far too long. While I am not pushing too hard, I am getting back to getting things in order. That means putting things where they belong, assuming a where they belong still exists… So LOML willing, is going to be the Texas Two Step as it were in my shop… Step #1. Take garbage out. I have a couple of bags...

Patch is now done and fits well. The next challenge will be the glue up and clamping as the back of the patch is the only flat surface I have to work with!
