Dog Bowl #4: Pins done, glued up

03-29-2008 01:28 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

Well I got the pins cut and chopped. I had to spend some time fitting the pins to the tails. I must admit I am not so skilled that I can cut the pins and slide that thing together without adjustments. I got caught with a little difficulty during glue up. In the past, I test fit everything all the way in place and then disassembled the project. I read somewhere that it is better to only partially slide them together and make a judgement when you think you have them fit well enough. Then ...

challenge04, bookcase

03-29-2008 12:06 AM by rod66 | 9 comments »

Just finished this project, 10 feet high x 15 feet wide. It was done in poplar and faux painted. All shelves are adjustable and the front is wainscoting. What bookshelf would not be complete without a 62” flat screen tv? Haven’t figured out sketch up, when I do I’ll try to get something up shortly. Rod

Asian Inspired Bookshelf Concept

03-28-2008 11:56 PM by chazmonro | 11 comments »

I dont have any clue how I’d build it or the dimensions, I just drew this up on a notepad and then threw together a quick illustration to post it up here, its somewhat asian inspired, and at first I was thinking it was 2 parts, but I guesss it could be built as one unit. I’m not sure on wood either yet, I was thinking mahogany. What do you guys think? Got any ideas for improvements or changes? Chuck

Bookcase Challenge04

03-28-2008 11:39 PM by tomfidgen | 7 comments »

Bookcase Challenge04 When I first heard of this contest I simply thought, hmmm, bookcases, another contest, another bookcase. And that was basically the end of it, I didn’t rush out to my drafting table and start scribbling, nor did I give it much thought. Another book shelf I thought, why try to re-invent the wheel right.?Ahhh, but as it goes, that very night I lie in bed awake, staring up at the ceiling with only one thing on my mind….a book case?So, the following morning whi...

Safety tip # 97: Never wear flip flops in the shop

03-28-2008 10:27 PM by Eric Vossbrink | 15 comments »

Ok, they tell you to always wear closed toed shoes when you’re working in the shop. Here in S.D. the weather is too nice to have long jeans, leather shoes, and steel toes. So I went out in shorts, a tank top, and flip flops. I was mounting my bench grinder on a 12’ work bench I just finished. I had a ratchet on top, and an open end wrench I was using to hold the nut below. 2 maybe 3 things went wrong #1 – I dropped the wrench on my unprotected big toe. Ouch! #2 – the wrench then d...

Bookcase Challenge entry

03-28-2008 08:06 PM by Greg Wurst | 15 comments »

Well, for kicks and giggles I decided to try to create a bookcase entry in Sketchup for the competition. I have no delusions of winning anything, but I thought I’d give it a try. I though of what I could do to make a traditional bookcase stand-out, and not coming-up with anything I decided to mess-around with curved surfaces in Sketchup. After some tinkering, I had a basic design that you see here: It’s more of an art piece than a bookcase I suppose, but it was t...

Woo Hoo

03-28-2008 07:52 PM by Fishsomo | 6 comments »

OK, some of you might recall my “Danger Will Robinson” experience this week with my Wilton Miter saw. Well, glory be to God, funny how things work out. I’ve been pricing a replacement and was kinda torn between the Dewalt and the Hitachi. Love the Dewalt but the cam lever they have to lock the table is broke in half the store demos I’ve seen so that was spooking me a bit. Anyway just this morning they put the Hitachi 12” 12FCH on Clearance ot Lowes for $136.00...

Projects I hope to complete before NEXT winter.

03-28-2008 07:00 AM by Will Mego | 16 comments »

The following is a list of related projects I hope to complete before the snows next come to roost on fair Illinois.(in only slightly intended order)1. Build a workbench I have one, that my grandfather built, and while it’s nice, it’s seen more than it’s share of wars. Pitted, stained, cut deeply and often, it resembles a cratered moonscape more than a work surface. It’s not square, flat, level, etc. So, I want to build a new one. I’ve been pouring over ̶...
