This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height. Following more pictures…
I am looking to design and build new bar stools for our kitchen island. I am looking for a design like that of the Aaron Stools (Pottery Barn) which I already own that style but the workmanship is junk. They squeak and are loose. Any ideas on where to find plans or designs to inspire my design? It has been a year since I made my last project which was the cherry tv stand. BTW, Home Depot has the Dewalt 12” double compound sliding miter saw for $599 and you get the $200 HD stand fre...
Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...
Hey Lumberjock friends!! I’m building a walnut lowboy entertainment center and wanted to use a secondary wood for the drawer bottoms. I know the usual suspect would be poplar but I’m looking for something with good grain structure but cheap. (Are the two even possible?) I tried Charles Neil blotch control for Baltic birch plywood but alas it still takes a stain/dye poorly. Any success stories out there?
Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...
Well my shipment of plexiglass came in Friday, and all I can say is What was I worried about! LOL I followed the instructions directions that Sloan’s Woodshop gave, using the double skip tooth #3 blades I purchased from them. I left the wrapper on the plexiglass, and placed duct tape on top of that. It was like cutting butter! No melting, no problems! Had the shape cut in a matter of 1 minute. I sanded the edges with fine steel wool. Loved it learned something new! Thanks to ...
Some pics from my trip to the Stickley Museum in Syracuse, NY.
I working with plywood and i would like to show my works.
About a year ago, I was excited to see the first copies of the “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” a compilation of my first, second and fourth books. Until I took a close look and saw that there were issues with the quality of the printing. You may have read the reviews on Amazon that make note of this. I’m happy to say that the book has been printed a second time, and the revised edition has resolved these issues. If you bought the book from me, yo...
Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...
