Alot a head scratching to get the body in shape.
Finished modified install of Kreg Band Saw Fence to my Craftsman 14” BS. Tried it out with good results :-) Originally I was going to build a extended table on top, but that would have lost me an inch of cutting height which was already close. A compromise for getting a really low priced BS. So far this unit seems to cover all of my needs++ But I’m only starting out with it. The issue I had with most after market fences is that they all bolted to the table such that I...
As a woodworker, do you either “woodworker” your way through home improvement projects, this making take four times longer, or do you try to “woodworker” help your contractor, probably much to their annoyance? Or, do you find a way to put in just the right amount of woodworker into these sorts of things. Here’a blog post about a recent porch/front steps re-do on my house that turned out really well… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/9/21/some-trim-carpen...
This blog posting is designed to take students in Wood Manufacturing 2 through the process of building a wall cabinet. The cabinet can be made with either plywood or hardwood, which will be determined by myself. Note: The final size will be slightly different; this blog was made while using a scrap piece slightly under-sized. To get started, obtain a piece of plywood from storage and head to the table saw. Safety glasses and a push stick will also be needed. Check that the table ...
Hi guys. Check out my latest video on making a time tracking application in excel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKErw2dmSVA&list=PLsajY4bbxhrBiASUneFk6SGICSCEeDQ_w&index=1In this video, I will show you how you can make a restore down icon and place it on the application’s toolbar. To do this I will be using MS Word and a free photo editing software called Gimp. You can download gimp here. http://www.gimp.org if you want to download the workbook and follow along you can do...
Spent pretty much all day today finishing up the tool chest. I finished painting it and scrubbed everything with a green pad to blend in the paint. I really liked how the milk paint looked, so I decided against boiled linseed oil. It’s black black black, almost sucks in the light since there’s nearly no sheen. Some of the pictures make it look lighter and much chalkier than it does in person. After the paint was done, I reinstalled the hinges, this time taking great care to get...
Been out in my back so been a slow go with this one.Here’s the beginning of the body work.Using oak and walnut for this build but the interior is cherry. To me they went about the body work in a strange round about way but should come out all right in the end.I thought they would look like coke bottles but look more like wine bottles to me.
The client supplied deer antlers to use for his drawer pulls, this is video documenting a technique of making a template board for alignment and drilling perpendicular to the antler, as well as using it to mark out hole locations on the drawer front, and finally installing an antler, than while the antler is fastened to the drawer front, then drill a support standoff hole perpendicular to the antler, for extra top support in the pull. https://youtu.be/dKzd_h69HoE ..........................
I decided on a Christmas gift for my friend Bill. I will enlarge and print a photograph of Bill with his parents. They are clearly a big influence on his life. His parents are now 95 and 91 years old. His siblings all seem to be profoundly successful in their respective fields. I believe making this print and framing it into nice picture frames would be a good Christmas gift for him. I want the frame to be strong and for it to complement the photograph. I studied several articles on maki...
