As far as making something and having it turned out like I envisioned it this rattle is the closest: Red Oak and Poplar and filled with dried beans, 5.5 inches long and 3/4 of an inch in diameter at the handle. Finished with mineral oil.
In another life, photography was my hobby. (You can check out some of my photographs here.) While I have created lots of projects that I wanted to upload, everytime I tried to take pictures of them, they would come out like crap. You can still see examples of this in my earlier projects. I initially was going to buy a light tent just to improve the quality of my projects to upload. I went to a couple of local photo shops but the least expensive kit started at $149. Walmart had a kit for$70...
I finally went out and spent the money on the plywood for the lower cabinet carcasses. I got five sheets of red oak ply from my local hard woods supply store. The last time I had made some cabinets I had just finished watching Norm’s kitchen remodel on “The New Yankee Workshop.” On that show, he use prefinished ply to make the carcases. I did the same thing and it was fantastic. I didn’t have to work to get into the corners or the recesses of the cabinets to finis...
Please welcome Nathan Kenneth Jaromin! Born November 9th. http://jaromin.com/blog/2008/11/happy-birthday-nathan-kenneth/
Well, as it goes in my world, the desk I was to start this weekend has been delayed for at least 2 weeks. No money for materials. Oh well, that will give me enough time to decide on a design. I am now leaning towards a basic desk with legs, as the wife wants bookcases as well in the library/office. She is wanting these bookcases to be made out of 2X material now (like my father’s bookshelves at his house).Oi Vay!! More work for me. The library/office is in a holding pattern until I c...
Well the base cabinet is in place and the position of the sink was determined so I drew an outline of the sink and I put a 3/4” line around the inside. I cut the straight lines using the battery operated skill saw, and the corners with a jig saw. I used hot melt glue and put down wooden blocks so that the sink could be placed in the correct position and be able to placed in position fast. To take the blocks off you just whack them with a hammer (Sideways). I ...

Making some progress, better be, xmas is coming soon. Got the raw lumber milled and cut to size. Here’s the raw lumber. Pieces milled and cut to size. Shelf glue up. Top glue up.
I built the base cabinet where the sink would go. It’s the same size as the one that is being replaced with the exception that the existing cabinet didn’t go into the corner. It stopped just past the sink. I guess cost cutting on the previous owner. The sink is not normally mounted upside down in the bottom of the cabinet. I had it here to find the correct positioning to cut the hole in the counter top. This is sitting in the kitchen in front of the cabinet being replace...
