Japanese Garden Bench #5: Finishing Up

1871 days ago by newTim | 4 comments »

By popular demand. ;) So here’s the finished project with the first coat of stain. I made some modifications to the original plans one of which is the seat height. At 6’5” it is perfect for me, but about an 1” too tall for my wife who’s about 5’8”. The bench is very sturdy and relatively light weight since it is made out of redwood. I imagine it would be much heavier if I had used oak. Like I said before, this was a fun project and not too diffi...

random #6: Suffolk Machinery band saw blades - helpful folks

1872 days ago by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I made the mistake of ordering 1 each of their 1” thick (my saw’s max) 103PC (3TPI) and 102PC (2TPI) swedish steel blades in the wrong length. I went by info I found online when ordering, instead of walking out to the shop to check for sure. Online places said 133”. The machine says 135”-137”. It just wouldn’t go on, even at the bottom of the top wheel’s extension. I called Suffolk just now, and they said 133” is a common length, so no re...

shop upgrades #3: Motor upgrade for the bandsaw

1879 days ago by Julian | 4 comments »

I just picked up a 1 1/2 hp 1740 rpm motor from a friend today for $30. It’s a VERY clean old Doerr brand motor made in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. After rewiring it to run in reverse, I installed it into my rigid 14” bandsaw that has a 6” riserblock, and many carter upgrades. Let me say that the saw is a totally different beast now! With the underpowered stock 3/4 HP motor, a very slow feed rate was needed to resaw tall stock. Now it breezes through 10” rock maple withou...

Wild Oregon Cherry Art Print Bin

1881 days ago by David | 8 comments »

I just completed the art print bin being built for The Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, Oregon. This was a commissioned piece to hold shrink-wrapped art prints in the gallery. The owners felt that a wooden print bin would fit the character of the gallery better than a commercial steel bin. Music to this woodworker’s ears! Completed Print Bin The design was worked out with SketchUp and finalized with a mock-up built with pine and MDF using a Kreg Jig and pocket screw joinery. The ...

Mahogany wine secretary #1: Bottom carcass construction

1894 days ago by Rob Bois | 5 comments »

I’m actually about half-way along in this project, but will try to get all caught up in this first entry. I call this a wine secretary since it is a wine cabinet for my dining room that is basically modeled after a traditional drop-front secretary. I started out by building a Sketchup model to help me visualize the project and generate a cut list. !From Wine Secretary(Sketchup model)! For materials, I chose Honduran mahogany, which is as close as I will be able to get to the Car...

Military Flag Display #1: Project overview and current status

1895 days ago by Mike Morris | 5 comments »

Overview The current project I’m working on is a military flag display case. My grandfather passed away last February. He served in the Navy during WWII and was stationed in the Pacific. I’ve had this on the to-do list for awhile. This is my first project that I am starting from scratch with a blank sheet…although it’s a pretty simplistic design. Here is the current SketchUp rendition of the project: (click on image to download the SketchUp project file) ...

Having a Senior Moment....Help?

1905 days ago by John Gray | 4 comments »

I need help finding an article/plan to make a US flag that holds the 50 state quarters. I saw the article/plan somewhere recently (in the last couple months) don’t remember what magazine or web site I saw it in/on. I’ve looked thru probably 100 magazine back issues, searched in LJ’s, and Googled it, no luck. I do remember one thing about it for sure, it said to buy the wooden stars at a craft store. The flag it’s self was waved like it would be blowing in the wind ...
