After mounting the slides, I used carpet tape to temporarily attach the drawer fronts. Slides are Centerline 757’s, and mounting is the same as my dresser project here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34281 -----Drawer fronts installed with 4 screws each.-----Since the drawers are graduated from 6” to 9”, I made a full sized pattern for the largest drawer. Then I marked the size of the other drawers, and used those lines to lay out all drawer pull holes o...
A friend of mine sent me this link this morning. This is a must see.. Amazing!” http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/the-unique-wood-chip-sculptures-of-segei-bobkov.html“
Awhile back, I began posting a series of blogs on the evolution of my router planer. Since that time I’ve actually made three more minor modifications that have had a huge impact on how well this thing works. The first modification: I was always frustrated with how long it took to measure the height at which to set the cross members of the planer using my square in a slotted 2×4. Well, I finally came up with a solution so simple even I was amazed (not the brightest bulb in the p...
Hello Readers! Well here it is, blog number 2 on Shades of Grain and I am already dying to show off a gift I made for my wife… The problem is, it is a Christmas gift, and she has been awfully sneaky as well as trying to guess what it is I might have made for her. The issue is that my posts end up on Facebook and she travails that site as well… so I am trapped for another 21 days, and its my own doing. It is complete, I can say that much and it came out like a dream! I do hav...
I wanted to make some of these to place onto my restored Vintage Beaver Power Tools.I decided to make them primitive hand cut lettering rather than engrave them. Beaver actually made a paperweight that is very primitive looking but hard to find.I’m also going to do another one and use my laser to engrave it.
-9in the workshop so speed was the key today…. Tweaked my belt sander and started to cut the shapes in to the knife handle this is for a right hander. I was quite pleased with the shaping so i thought I would try a quick hand sander rub down to take some edges out. This went well. So out came the 120 grit and a frantic rub around. I was starting to be really happy.. 600 grit.. over enthusiasium.. dropped back to 400 grit now this really did work some wonders.. ...
Busy! Busy! Busy! This is truly the only way to describe what’s going on right now in my life. I had a few odds and ends jobs to complete outside this week before I start building the shed underneath of my son’s tree house next week. Some of them I’m sure that I could have done multiple tasks in one day but, hell! Why kill myself? I cat proofed the back yard so that our three legged feline could go outside. That did take a whole day to complete and now he is giving hell to all of the an...
Leg glue up. Yes, those are some nice burns on the wood. Lumber cut to size. My first mortise and tenon. Ever. Headboard minus panels, dry fit. Tuning the slot for a panel. Drilling (Forstnering?) another mortise. This is my method for inserting the nut for the bed bolt. I got the idea from a magazine, but this method set me back some hours. I would probably just use a barrel nut next time. Still, it looks pretty good. Today, my orbital sa...
I got the snowman carcass and drawers all separated and the drawers cut up and formed back together. I also got the first round of sanding done on the snowman’s body. Predictably, I am planning to paint this white (with a black hat, black buttons and and orange nose). Next up is some sanding on the drawers, and cutting up a 1/4” dowel to make the 3 “buttons” to go down the front (2 of the buttons will be drawer pulls for the 2 bottom drawers).
