Designing For Children- There's No Place Like Home

01-19-2010 06:34 AM by Benji Reyes | 1 comment »

MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 2010Designing For Children- There’s No Place Like HomePublished article: Homestyle Magazine (November/December 2009 Issue) It takes a while for me to really appreciate a beautiful home. The exterior and interior design of the structure (or as I call them. The “picture“ and the “frame,” respectively), as well as the landscaping, are all visible and tactile elements of architecture. The sound of children’s laughter and the spontaneous interaction between parents and...

Garage workshop/lumber storage #1: Start of a lumber rack....

01-19-2010 05:10 AM by AngelofDeath | 4 comments »

This is just the start…still have to drywall the rest of the garage though…not too much left, just had to get some stuff out of the way so I will be able to walk around before I trip and break my neck on something. Put together some lumber racks, and a rack to store some turning stock…still got plenty of more work to do…and could have got some done…but my helper wanted to make a bird house…so I had to take a break from the racks and help her with a bird ho...

Extremely Average #17: My Inconvenient Truth

01-19-2010 04:33 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

I am completely gassed. Today I completed the last cuts I need to put the top stretchers into the legs of my saw horses. The last major hurdle was to cut the feet into something more interesting looking than a rectangle. Krenov, who designed these, has the feet with pleasing angles and a cut out on the bottom. I had delusions of grandeur and considered doing something different, but I couldn’t come up with anything I like better than the Master’s design.My desire to improve at using h...

Birth of a Guitar #3: Part 3

01-19-2010 04:02 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 13 comments »

The exciting conclusion to Rick’s adventure into the world of lutherie. Rick does an incredible job recovering from his previous, nearly disastrous mistake. He takes us through the final assembly as well as his finishing process, which involves a number of techniques including pore-filling, French polish, and wiping varnish. Congratulations to Rick and a huge thank you for letting me tear up your video footage. I know more than a few folks have been inspired to dive into the wonderful w...

Dust Collection for Router Table

01-19-2010 03:04 AM by Mike | 8 comments »

I would like to build my own dust collection system for the underside of my router table. Any suggestions drawings pictures of ones that you have built. Also is it better to have the dust port directly underneath the router or to the back like on Norm Abrams table. Also should I stay with 4” or go smaller. I want to capture as much dust as possible.

My Table Saw UPGRADE!

01-19-2010 02:51 AM by FiremanFrank | 7 comments »

I thought the Ridgid R4511 would be a great find if any Home Depot had it left for $350. So, I called around and was unable to find one. Until a buddy of mine told me he saw a nice table saw for real cheap at Home Depot about 20 miles from my house (I called 4 stores closer and was unable to find one so I gave up).I called them up and they happen to have 2 available. I got it from Home Depot for $299. I couldn’t turn it down at that price. I just put it together and cut one piece of pin...

Fir Workbench! #2: Having fun with jointer...

01-19-2010 02:15 AM by LucasinBC | 10 comments »

A bad flu and a business trip later, and I still haven’t laminated this darn thing! Not for lack of trying, but being the rookie, I definitely underestimated the time and effort requried in milling 6ft long lumber. My jointer is up for the task; the total table length is 46” so there should be no major lack of capacity…but I never realized that jointing long lumber was a challenge…getting rid of even the smallest high spots is tough…especially with a softwood l...
