Box designing with poetry

08-07-2010 06:49 AM by Edward83 | 3 comments »

One thing I love about building is design. When I was a carpenter I was limited to building code and specifications and so on. I find that when it comes to designing boxes I am more free from the standards and can let the creativity flow. Now though I do have a book of boxes drawn out that I would like to build there are still boxes I find myself building with no set plans, something built from just an idea. Sometimes these planless boxes don’t come out half bad, other times they wi...

I got a message from Roger Clark.

08-07-2010 06:47 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

Karson:After several days I have got most of my muscles back and have made a significant improvement. My test scores this week went to an acceptable level and my kidneys are back to normal. I’m still in the “can’t do much” situation but every day gets me stronger. Today the surgeon called and scheduled the surgery for next Wednesday, with tests on the Monday before. Good news. Sandra does have all your details and she found the recorded message, thank you.Got to t...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #16: week

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, # 16Hey friends, when I left you last time, we were ready to sand the case. I started by putting wedges in the drawers, to keep them in place while sanding. First I sanded the whole front of the lowboy case and drawers to make them all even for the installing of the drawer fronts. After checking the front with a straight edge at many different angles to make sure the drawers ,legs and case were dead flat, I then moved on to both sides and the back. This was a ...

Grizzly G0555 -new dust port #1: Grizzly G0555 -new dust port #1:

08-07-2010 04:31 AM by Jim Jakosh | 6 comments »

I have a Grizzly G0555 14” band saw and have had a problem collecting the dust adequately. It has a 4” port on the back but I don’t have a big dust collector so I made a reducer for my 2 1/4” Genie Shop Vac that did not do much at all. I have been thinking about collecting the dust right below the blade for some time now. Wednesday I cut out some time to design and close in port.This is the first pic of the area under the blade: Then I made a paper model to get the ...

Random shop notes #5: Shopping, vising.

08-07-2010 03:38 AM by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Got out on the town today, and picked up some small tools I need. Chisels, files, a 2 ft. level, a bevel. And I finally got around to taking the old blade off the circular saw my FIL gave me. I clamped the blade into the machinists vice I’ve got, gave the bolt a jolt of wd-40, and then went at it with a wrench. I’ll get some new blades later this month. I also found a nice local sawmill that will do small lot surfacing and carries local hardwoods; they’ll als...

We made it and delivered the entry furniture this week. After a sprayed coat of sanding sealer and three coats of water based semi-gloss laquer finish, it turned out nice. We look forward to the next project. !http://!:http:// Sorry the picture did not turn out real well, not a lot of room.
