Dovetail Saw Rehab #3: More progress made today.

05-26-2010 06:03 AM by docholladay | 0 comments »

After 2 more hours of work, the handle really is starting to “shape” up nicely. I did the initial shaping using a rotary tool with a rasp bit in it. Then started using files and 150 grit sandpaper to get it to it’s current stage of completed. Here are the most recent pics.

Extremely Average #144: Loved the Ideas

05-26-2010 05:11 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, I enjoyed my woodworking practice today. Much more than yesterday’s debacle. Several of the comments were right on the mark and I am going to continue to practice my dovetails, but will focus more on quantity right now, and not obsess about quality, as I was doing. Just like everything it takes a lot of repetition. So I started some more dovetails tonight. I also made a discovery about the chisels I was using. Brian

Jeweler's Bench #2: The Top - Details

05-26-2010 04:40 AM by Marc | 1 comment »

OK, I lied. This installment isn’t about the building of the bench legs. I had a few more details to add to the bench top and didn’t think they would make for their own entry but now I think they can stand on their own, so here we go. The bench my wife picked out has a small steel plate attached to the top of the bench for hammering on and whatnot. I had already purchased her a 4”x4” steel block for this purpose so I decided to simply make a matching recess in the t...

DISCLAIMER:I did all my work with the wiring while it was not hooked up to any power sources. One I got to that point, I stopped and let a pro review my work, fix my mistakes and do any of the dangerous work like hooking it up to power. Mistakes might be in this blog, so don’t take this as a how to. I’m just documenting my understanding of the process so you can see the progress. Consult with a professional to do any of your own work! To Do (bold items are complete as of th...

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #4: platform finished...almost there!!!

05-25-2010 11:49 PM by dakremer | 14 comments »

I am sorry I do not have a lot of time before going to work, so I will not be able to write a whole bunch. I finished the platform today. All that is left is the backrest. I will hopefully have that finished tomorrow, and then all that is left is the pillows, and legs. Here are some pictures of what it looks like so far. sorry this has to be so short, but I am running out of time…if you have any questions, just ask me, otherwise maybe I can post more about it later on – i jus...

Haidyn's Crib #4, End Assemblies & Top Caps, Bent Moldings & Trim Pieces

05-25-2010 10:38 PM by ND2ELK | 14 comments »

The end assemblies are made the same way as the head board assembly. You can refer to the pictures in blog #3. Step 1. After cutting the pieces for the end assemblies to finished size, I laid out the slats and doweled them to the bottom and top boards. The bottom board and slats are glued, but the wide top board and slats are not; again, I had to remember to work from the center out. Step 2. The next step was to cut the curve on the bottom of the top board. I marked the center of th...

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #5: A shed?

05-25-2010 10:37 PM by captkerk | 7 comments »

Before I went any further with the garage, I determined it was time to get some things out. So it was time for a shed! It took my dad and me about four days to build, plus another few days to paint. It’s 8’x14’ and 9’ tall overall thanks to HOA restrictions. I wanted to make sure I could fit my extension ladder and I have just enough room for that, plus extra room for rough lumber storage. I still need to build a ramp, but I’m not very motivated. Th...
