Shop Tools #5: Today's Finds - June 9 2007

06-10-2007 06:07 AM by WayneC | 9 comments »

A few of you knew I was going old tool shopping today. I visited a number of antique stores down by where Obi lives. I found a couple of interesting items today. Nothing really outstanding, but good items. I found the following 3 items. Two screwdrivers and a Stanley #65 block plane. According to Patrick's Blood and Gore, the Stanley #65 is one of the finest planes Stanley ever made. I would tend to agree. The workmanship in this plane is wonderful. Here is a picture o...

Morris inspired chair #2: Dryfit.....sand.....glue

06-10-2007 06:07 AM by Bob Babcock | 8 comments »

Gotta get to bed so I’ll make this a quick one… It’s looking like a chair. From the back Closeup of the crossing tenons. Night Ops….final sanding. I need some more clamps….like 20 or so…this is every one I own. OK…bedtime…heading to my daughters on the Cape in the morning. We are wiring the lampost/mailbox I made her. I’ll get some pictures and post them tomorrow. Very easy and relatively inexpensive to make.

Home reno #1: Oak Stairs

06-10-2007 03:52 AM by scottb | 16 comments »

What a week for new experiences and big projects. While my nights were spent toiling on the Thorsen Table… and trying new things, the day job had me wrapping my mind around several new things as well. The last basement dad and I refinished (sub contracting for Owens Corning) included perhaps the pinnacle of woodworking projects – redoing the stairs. Ripping off the 2×8 treads and replacing those with oak, adding oak risers, newel post, railing and 52 spindles. T...

Storage Shed #4: Stage 4 more walls

06-10-2007 01:34 AM by MsDebbieP | 7 comments »

This afternoon, we put up two more walls and hopefully tomorrow morning will complete the last wall which will be the double-doors. We have already decided where the lathe, table saw, and mitre saw will go once the kids move out and don’t need the storage space any longer. I suggested that we get another set of tools—one for the basement in the winter and one for the shed in the summer. That way we never have to move anything! :)

'This Old Crack House' #43: Restless and unsettled....

06-09-2007 06:26 PM by Dusty | 12 comments »

The house was finished and rented out, although I still remained unsettled about the whole deal, even though the immediate pressure was off. I had grown to like the house and I was very comfortable with the tenets. However, I was still unsettled. I am unsure exactly why I felt this way. As I reflect on it, I guess it was that I had poured my heart, soul and a lot of money into a project that I was no longer a part of. I really hadn’t let go of the house when it was rented o...

Prospecting for Wood #4: Last Night's Dumpster Dive

06-09-2007 05:31 PM by Paul | 6 comments »

Went for a walk with my wife last night. I have been eyeing this large dumpster behind an old house in our neighborhood for the last few days. I’m not sure whether they’re preparing the house for demolition, remodeling or moving, but the dumpster was full. I took a closer peek in the dumpster last night and went back with the van after we got home. Click the thumbnail pic for a larger view. I guess they tore out a cedar lined closet in the house. I now have enough 3&...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Prologue

06-09-2007 01:47 AM by Zuki | 10 comments »

Well . . . Im starting one of my largest projects to date . . . a set of kitchen cabinets for our new home. These will be made from solid poplar with no glues or adhesives. I will be using pocket hole joinery throughout the entire project. First step is to order the lumber. We will be getting it from a local lumber warehouse who will have to get it from Quebec or Ontario. Prior to ordering I need to know how much lumber I will need for the project. DW has a detailed plan of the cabi...

Cleanup Progress #2: 3 weeks of boxes

06-09-2007 12:16 AM by rookster | 2 comments »

Cleaning is a little like dieting: you get great progress at the beginning and the result is easy to see. I’ve been very consistent about the workshop cleanup over the last three weeks: Tuesday nights are strictly reserved for dealing with trash and clutter; Thursday nights I get to do something a little more fun, like setting up and tuning the Radial Arm Saw or clearing the workbenches for use weekends allow for projects of any type (I’ve just been clearing little fix-it tasks in...
