Building For The Wife #5: Quick and dirty spice rack with doors

09-23-2015 01:39 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

With the finish drying on her bureau, a process that was taking forever because I used from a can of Ace extra slow drying polyurethane on the top, My wife reminded me that she wanted the finish to be extra smooth with lots of coats so that she could roll out dough on the countertop, and that I needed put up the spice cabinet when I brought in her new bureau so that she could organize everything affected by the change all at once with minimal disruption to her kitchen. Unbeknownst to her, ...

Well about the show

11-15-2011 11:18 AM by Eagle1 | 9 comments »

The show wasn’t to bad since the economy isn’t the greatest these days. While the show was going on. The lady next to me kept looking at the rolling pins. Later in the day she asked me if I would be interested in another show. I said sure. She told me it is tomorrow and where it was. I asked her how much to get into it. She said $25.00. I thought some more through out the day. Then I told her since you keep looking at the rolling pins. I would give her the one that she...

My Wife's Classroom

08-24-2009 08:27 PM by Jay Neale III | 10 comments »

Here you can see two of my woodworking projects in my wife’s classroom. I built the Lectern and the In-Box out of birch plywood with no edge banding. She teaches 7th graders and it was decided to just use the ply, give it a small amount of style in the form of a routed edge profile where applicable, apply a durable finish and leave it at that. Seventh graders are not known for the care they lavish upon school furnishings. If the plywood gets scratched or dented I’m not going to feel bad about...

Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 28 Time To Turn It Over

01-28-2016 11:53 PM by farmerdude | 10 comments »

The filler coat of epoxy has cured, and I sanded it with 80 grit, then sanded with 120 grit. Once again the beautiful, shiny hull is now whitish. I’ve checked it and the epoxy is thick enough to have taken the sanding without sanding into the cloth. This means it is finally time to turn this canoe over and have a look at the inside. The first thing I like to do is remove the screw on each end that holds the stem form in place. The other stations have one screw in each side. I...

Not quite in the workshop... #6: Hi ho, Hi ho, it's up to the attic I go!

03-24-2010 08:12 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

So while discussing bills and such over dinner last night, LOML is leafing through the Home Depot sales circular, and finds R30 unfaced fiberglass roll insulation for cheap… More discussion, and I get informed that we WILL be buying the insulation and we are going NOW… (She saw the February electric bill, I HATE having electric heat!)... So I get over to the BORG, grab a flat cart, and wheel back to where the insulation is… I start loading the cart with the 6 roll cases o...

Starting a new woodworking business #2: new business

12-17-2009 07:34 PM by Wayne | 5 comments »

Thanks to all who responded. Just in case you’re interested, my business plan is beginning to take shape. I have a web site up and running now (WAYNEWERKS.COM). I have displayed several of my products there, but haven’t done any pricing yet. I’ve also set up an account on ETSY.COM, but haven’t much luck there yet. I’m sure I’ll need to add more products in order to reach a larger demographic and increase the likelyhood of making sales. I’ve also set u...
