Hello minature box junkies everywhere. I was going to take some good advice and close it down for the weekend but at the moment I feel like a kid at Christmas. I can’t wait to see what this box will look like or even if it’ll be a total disaster. First things first. I cut the rectangle out of the guide for laying out the top and now I had a window onto what would be the best part of the glue-up to use.I marked it up and proceeded to cut it up. Using a scrap bit of MDF as a back...
I recently posted an emotional/personal “sculpture” entitled Self Portrait Of The Artist As An Old Person. It is an attempt by me to express disability/poverty/pain/ insecurity/ dissassociation/living in an able bodied world. I made it from my favorite medium: wood. I got many comments and appreciate all of the folks who did so. But I received no comment at all from one fella, but 2 days later he posted a copy of my art. He was kind enough to say he copied from me, and I appreciat...
This has been bigger than Ben Hur…I have had this on the books for a few months…..longer actually…. Get a trailer and hit the road…Take the Torque to the people… BUT…Always something to hold it up….Some little hiccup… Something to slow down the progress.. ..oh well….It took a while but the Torque Workcentre finally has a chariot to ferry it around.. and what a chariot.. Hooked behind the Workshop Ute….Sweet…I had this cus...
For several months now I have been dreaming about building a credenza as the ultimate next project to tackle. I don’t have a clue where I am going to put it when its done. I don’t have any space for a 6 foot long cabinet, but I really want to build one. So I started drawing and looking at pictures of credenzas online. A credenza is basically a low, wide cabinet that is mostly used these days as living room furniture, often below the TV. My first design looked like this: ...
Its been awhile, but this projects been extremely slow in the making. After making all those segments of my bench I glued them together and trimmed the ends… it ended up weighing about 150 lbs, freaking heavy. After I finished with the top I experimented with making some homemade dogs, and then started work on the legs. I know metal isnt very traditional, but it does save alot of time and its sturdy. This was my first welding experience and it was pretty fun, molten metal burned through...
Hello LJ, Tonight I am late, because I have been looking and purchasing some beautiful hand planes. There were some that were well beyond my price range, but if you like extremely rare planes, I describe a few of them, and I could put you in contact with the gentleman. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/05/acceptable-excuse-for-late-post/ Brian
I guess I am getting wiser with age after all…a good friend of mine pointed out the difference between being smart and being wise. I say this because I used to get upset (really more like pissed off) at some of the posts and ideas that didn’t click with me. This is not positive for this great site. It is easy to be blunt and create more reactions when you are sitting behind a monitor….here is a few samples 1. The Rockler Bench Cookies Challenge – I bashed this ...
There quite a few Jocks on here that have the Jet/Performax drum sanders. I bought my 16-32 about two years ago and don’t know how I survived before it. It runs just about every day for hours. About 6 months ago it started making a strange noise, like a quick clunking sound, when I turned it on. The smooth sound when running a piece of wood through it slowly changed to chatter and I noticed a slight snipe on each board that I had never experienced before. This went on for a couple months...
Turning wooden knobs for my jigs.
Just fooling around with scrap wood. This project is really about testing the accuracy of your cuts. Plus the puzzle is actually kind of hard to solve!
