I don’t know if this is the appropriate location to post this but hopefully it’s ok and will be seen too. My wife is one of the organizers of the event listed below and she just gave me the info about it.I know the timing is real short, but if anyone wants to help that’d be great.One of the things they’re looking for are pinewood car bodies for kits they plan to package.Another would be pens, small boxes, or whatever else you make and would be interested in donating...

A journey into the workshop. #9: Accidental finishing started...

09-23-2009 04:17 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Okay so the top WAS through final sanding and it indeed WAS ready for a finish, but the sides weren’t… But you know how these things go. Tight for space, and the workbench hasn’t been put in its final place. Fooling around on the lathe applying the finish to, well whatever it is. The product of my fooling around. (I am SERIOUSLY considering taking the suggestion to drill a counter bore in it and make a candlestick holder out of it…) I turned around to get more li...

French cleat garage storage system #1: Starting my largest storage project ever

09-23-2009 02:57 AM by jeffreythree | 4 comments »

I decided the other day that those nifty french cleats would look real cool on my garage wall for modular, adjustable storage. My wife has a hard time dodging my tools, I can’t help bringing home new ones, and I cannot get to some to use them without 15 minutes of rearranging. The 20’ long wall I picked was relatively barren other than some yard tool holders and an extension cord holder. It is about 9’ to the ceiling and I have chosen to space the 3” cleats with 3-...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #6: Another sad day...

09-23-2009 02:45 AM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Since I was out of the office today I didn’t get to work on my Unisaw again… well maybe just for a minute. I can’t work on it again today. La Jolla can wait two minutes… Painting the bracket again. I stopped at Rockler A matter of personal preference. The thing about recording videos with your iPhone is that if you get a call it just stops recording in mid-sentence. This paint is too gray. I think I will have to buy a can from Delta.

09-23-2009 01:20 AM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well in order to move up to building household furniture I have to show the boss what I can do…So I am starting with some shop cabinets. Nothing fancy, they are made of mdf. I matched the dimensions off one of the cabinets in my kitchen. I am planning on using just ripped 2×4 for the face frame, ill eventually add doors too. Obviously I need a lot of practice…but I realize I need a lot more clamps than what I have. I was able to get a crosscut sled done for t...

Sign Design

09-22-2009 11:35 PM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

Hi everyoneI’m in the process of designing the sign for our scrolling group—The River City Scrollers here in Richmond. At our last meeting we cut out all of the letters for the sign and we decided to do an intarsia to show how Richmond got it’s nickname—River City. I found a pic of The James River with the city in the background and gridded it to help with the scale. The next step was to make the frame for the sign. I found some 12” wide Mahogany that a fr...
