My first blog was a “challenge” to you all to choose from three seperate projects which to report on next…I “learned”, at lumberjocks, ALL projects carry equal interest :-)...although, at least a few of you actually told me the model house was a “little more” of interest… I just posted a few more pictures I found of this project and will “hopefully” be able to tell a little about why I “built it” and where that project...
My father has had all kinds of problems with receiving their download. We have e-mailed the company 4 time to let them know we haven’t received any link to download the plans he ordered and paid for. There is no phone number that you can contact the company. They DO NOT respond to their e-mails. Our only recourse will be to challenge the charge with the credit card company. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? Thanks ,Becky
The dimensions for the hope chest were a bit trickier to figure out. I spent several hours on and off thinking about this and trying different things. The sides had to be a bit smaller because of way I’m going to attach the sides to the front and back. I also wanted to keep the chest at a finished size of 24” x 48” x 24” (24 tall, 48 long, 24 deep). The front and back sides will be glued with biscuits using a simple butt joint. The finished dimensions of the si...
Now that I have completed my entry for the current contest its time to get back to working on the shop itself. I was in the process, before the contest of updating my workshop. I will be insulating the ceiling, I have been purchasing 1 package of R30 insulation per pay period to do the ceiling. Now that I have all that I think I will need its time to crawl in the attic and get it done. Its not the most accessible area of my house but I am getting tired of being cold and hot. I know what every...
Ok—two success stories last night. I got rid of one cheesy (cheap) toolbox that I bought years ago for the princely sum of $40 . . . some happy owner has a new $10 toolbox for his grandson. The most important part is I have more floor space! As you can see in the recently updated Sketchup drawing . . .I need it! So the plan is to keep on selling/giving away/trashing what I don’t need. Thus far I’ve discovered that if you put it on Freecycle/Freebie type listings p...
I have spent a little time thinking about Video and Audio Podcasting. I am Slightly Shy in both aspects of Video and Audio. But I have been working on this shiness by overcoming it in Video and Audio Podcast. I have decided that, As long as I get my point across, others learn from my audio and video, then I am more satified with it then what I look like no matter how goofy or entertaining I may or may not be or even as boring as I may be, information, demonstrations and how-tos are a v...
I will be there Saturday only. For you guys going Friday I hope you have heard that Norm will be there 12-4! Man that would be awesome to meet him but i just can’t make it until Saturday. This is only my second ever trip to the wood show and this year I want to take advantage of some of the seminars taking place. I was on such a sensory overload last year I didn’t figure out what was going on until it was over. If you are curious you can go the the wood show site and click...
Another money-saving (I hope) project that I did recently was a coat rack made from a couple of old wooden skis my grandfather left to me. He had two pairs from his youth that were still in pretty good shape. I still can’t believe people used these things. Again, my wife and I were looking through catalogs (Pottery Barn or something similar) and saw that they had old wooden skis made into coat racks and hung on a wall. We got to think…Hey, we have skis!!! But look what they...
A small conference table - the build #6: Start applying the finish to the top, and set up legs and aprons
I continue work. For the upcoming several days I will continue applying the finish to the top; today I started applying the Zinsser Seal Coat (shellac) to the underside. And work started on setting up for cutting tenons on the aprons, and mortises on the legs. From my blog: Sometimes, decisions are tough. For example, to start the work day today, I debated whether to start applying the Zinsser Seal Coat to the table top as it lay on the workbench, or take into the finishing room. The...
