Workshop #2: I found the workbench...

02-17-2010 06:53 PM by puupalikka | 2 comments »

Finally I had little time to spend in my workshop. I took some photos of the room. I also tried to heat up the space with little electric heater. Outside it’s -10 degrees celsius and inside the basement there is +5°C. With the heater the room heated up pretty easily to +10°C. So maybe it’s possible to maintain the basic heat at the workshop with electric heater. I also cleared out the top of the workbench. The top is in ok condition. I think it has been used as a multi-workbenc...

Recovery projects #7: Even a beater needs a little attention

10-08-2008 02:39 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

Just puttering around with sharpening tonight. I found this old beater in a box while looking for something else. Thought I’d give it a little attention. I honestly don’t know what I was using this for that made it in such bad shape—- but, if nothing else, it proves I was at one time working on something! Five minutes working through 80 – 220 grit – got all (OK most) the crud off I prefer to use my waterstones for most of my sharpening &#...

Walnut Tallcase Clock #4: Walnut Tallcase Clock

09-08-2008 04:32 PM by Charles Mullins | 6 comments »

I’ve done a little work on the clock hood Saturday, so here’s what I’ve got right now. I made the arch moulding and installed them I also cut and glued on the goose neck mouldings. I was real happy with the left one since it mated up with the return moulding nearly perfectly but the right one had a small gap. I guess I’ll cut a small shim to close the gap rather than putting in putty. I hate it when that happens! Here a close up of the rosettes, the one on the le...

The Saga Continues #2: Entertainment Center

03-12-2007 10:25 PM by fred | 1 comment »

I finished the dining room cabinets and started thinking about my next adventure in woodworking. I had been using a couple of room dividers against a wall in the family room to house the television and some stereo equipment. My family gave me a DVD player and a surround sound system as a gift. The more I thought about it the more need I had for a ‘proper’ entertainment center. I researched the magazines and the internet to come up with a picture of something that would work for me. Nothi...

My history

03-18-2012 04:05 AM by JFC | 6 comments »

Got into woodworking a little over 30 years ago, in the interum I have made a lot of sawdust. Projects included entertainment centers, bedroom furniture, tables, chairs and the list goes on. I am currently in the process of making some more chairs for our dining room, after that my daughter has me written in for some kitchen cabinets. It seems like they want to keep me busy since I have retired for real this time, which by the way is the fourth time I have tried this, retirement that is.

Plumb makes it so effortless

03-16-2011 02:59 AM by BlueHatMan | 0 comments »

I am in the process of building a shop table. Not so much a workbench as a rolling work table that, if luck is with me, will finish out at table saw height. My best guess right now, slightly under.I have a workbench the size of a door. It’s the build-it-in-a-weekend-with-big-box-lumber model I am sure you have seen, and it has served me well, mostly as a carving bench. In fact, it was built at carving height, which is too high for much anything else I’d like to pursue. And it is b...

Medicine Cabinet Part ?? #1: Not quite chronological process

05-12-2010 02:24 AM by Blinky | 0 comments »

I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...
