Bathroom vanity rebuild #1: R & L Bathroom Re build Pt 1.

08-17-2017 09:17 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

After making a Sink Cutting Board for our neighbours Caravan they asked for a rebuild on their Bathroom Vanity. So I took a look. The construction was plastic cladded particle board of which was showing a lot of wear and tear. The drawer section on the left had long failed an had two of the drawers removed the other was stuck fast. Also added with the fact that the door on the RH side was really too big for the area next to the bath. The owners wanted to do away with th...

The Wood Shop #1: Scoring in CT

08-16-2017 10:35 PM by dmtparker | 2 comments »

My wife & I are in CT for the week babysitting our granddaughter, Parker, as her day care is closed for the week. While we are here, I have been cruising the local Craigslist and today I scored big! First I got a Craftsman 12” tilting blade band saw that looks very interesting and is in perfect condition. Then I scored an Align-A-Rip fence to replace the crappy one on my Craftsman table saw. (Great saws, but awful fences!). That just abut completes my major shop purchases. Previous...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1851: Tall Ships

08-16-2017 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I did something I rarely do – I took the day 'off'. There were several reasons that I did this. Lately, things have been busier than ever and I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. After many years of having my own business, I realize that working seven days a week – even when we are busy – isn't always the best answer to getting caught up. Sometimes it is best to take a step back and rest and do something completely unrelated to 'work'...

Ok, Drawers: Laid out a few drawer fronts… These were the “easy ones...

Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

rebuilding an old knife #6: The finish line, last entry!

08-15-2017 08:39 PM by jeffswildwood | 14 comments »

Well it rained all day here. So what do I do? Let’s finish this old knife. When I left off I had the scales glued and ready to go. First task was to trim off the brass. It’s at this point that I found out the dremel is my friend. Made short work of the trim. Next was a trip to the band saw to get things close. I took Bill and Ken’s advice and attempted to make a natural bolster in the handle. So far it look’s like it will work out. Looks like I got a lot ...

Key Largo Carolina Dory Build #4: Plywood and Fiberglass

08-15-2017 03:29 AM by ccarrington | 2 comments »

Plywood going on! 1/2 inch sides and 3/4 inch bottom. sides bent much easier than i expected. Could not get screws to catch into the chine log or sheer cleam but tons of glue and clamps and plenty of screws into the ribs and it seems to be holding well. Getting it close, then trimming to size and belt sanding to where it needs to be. Finally got an electric planer. Works so fast its almost scary. base coat of epoxy over the whole shell coat one of 6oz fiberglass. marine epoxy s...
