Base cabinets, island and counter tops

08-03-2010 10:28 PM by SteveC | 3 comments »

Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...

TV Entertainment Center #1: SketchUp, tablesaw sled, and making the front legs

08-03-2010 09:16 PM by Stevinmarin | 19 comments »

After a lot of help from LumberJocks, I was able to work my way through Google SketchUp and come up with an Art Deco inspired design. I can’t believe it took me the whole weekend to make the two front legs, but that’s as far as I got. I hope to get much further and maybe complete the unit this weekend.

Pallets 4 me woot woot #1 #1: Hoping for ideas

08-03-2010 08:54 PM by mcoyfrog | 6 comments »

Ok so I just started getting these pallets from a furniture store for free, most are pine but there are a few every once in a while that are oak. I’m planning on using them for all sorts of things and would like some of your ideas as well. First on my plate is a second chicken coop.

Yankee trouble (bits and pieces...) BLOG

08-03-2010 08:05 PM by mafe | 17 comments »

Yankee trouble (bits and pieces…)Or when you have to pay 45$ for to little, and are to stubborn to do so! Yes I had the choice to pay 45$ including shipping for Europe, for a bitholder to my Yankees, or buy a set of different bits from england for 28 Pound – this was the closest to madness since I own several other more modern screwdrivers, but…Yes I like old tools, and love to have a beautiful or special tool in my hands, and since I am the owner of tree Yankee screwdriv...

Impossible II

08-03-2010 06:39 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

Hi everyone. Here is the method for making the Impossible II. Before we start I didn’t take any photos during the build for this one. I needed to concentrate full time on it and taking pics can be distracting. The CAD drawings provided here should do the job . I’ve seen Steve (spalm) use this sort of thing to great effect. I’m not giving exact sizes, you can scale things off of the pics. This will give you the angles too, mostly 60°. First the complete pattern You ...
