Stairs #2: 45 degree OTP Winder Stairs balustrade

12-06-2010 07:17 PM by Drew | 3 comments »

A recent Over-The-Post balustrade install with a starter step, end caps and a volute. In part 1 I installed my skirt boards, end caps and started my rail. Now to install the starter newel to the starter step. Newels and rail installed. Throw in some balusters…. And the final product (less carpet). A couple bonus pictures of the continuous rail in the basement._ Thanks for viewing. All comments are welcome, positive AND...

Trestle Table Desks #7: Tops final sanded and finished with a nifty lousy susan idea

12-06-2010 07:09 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Using a Clampin’ Guide and a Skilsaw with a planer blade in it, I squared the ends of the tops and scribed the corner radius—some kind of convenient can—and cut that with a new blade in the Bosch jigsaw. After ROSing the edges to 150 I rounded over top and bottom 5/16 radius. Often I’ll use a smaller radius on the bottom, but this thickness looks so strong that, if anything, I wanted to lighten it up a little with the radius. Then I used an OS to 220...

Stairs #1: 45 degree OTP Winder Stairs balustrade

12-06-2010 05:35 PM by Drew | 3 comments »

A recent Over-The-Post balustrade install with a starter step, end caps and a volute. This balustrade was a real challenge. Not because it was an OPT or a winder, but because the landings are at 45 degrees, and they are both set up different. Starter step. Skirt. End caps. Building the rail. 45 degree caps are a real problem. So I make my own buy cutting 2 opening caps at 22.5 degrees. In part 2, Newels and balusters!

Pair of mantels

12-06-2010 05:12 PM by Drew | 6 comments »

Here are a pair of mantels I recently built.I was asked to make them the “same style as your doors…....... but cheap”. Not a style I would usually make, but I was VERY limited in the width, thanks to the framers. I used a locking miter bit to make the legs. Then I made all the details with a stick-&-cope set. Here is leg ready for install. Legs laid out with the shelf and frieze. Start of the install. Finished install. Ready f...

Christmas Gifts and planning for Home Reno

12-06-2010 03:09 PM by Marty Schlosser | 1 comment »

This week I’m planning to take a bit of time off the on-going home reno to focus on some Christmas gifts. Shhh, don’t tell my wife, but I’m making something for her, something for my two grandsons and one for my wife’s grandson. It should be a fairly intense week of fun in the shop. At the same time, I’ll do some preliminary planning for the stairway reno which will begin next week, on the 13th of December. I’m planning to kick it off by first tearing...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #186: First Snow of the Year

12-06-2010 03:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I woke up this morning to a light blanket of white snow. It isn’t the soft, fluffy snow that you see in movies though. It is the wet snow that was almost rain and by the time you see it on the ground, it is more like slush than anything. The streets are clear, as they are too warm for it to stick, but they are deceptively slippery. Winter is definitely knocking at the door. It is still falling now as I write, but it is more of a chunky rain than snow. The sun just came up but th...
