Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

12-24-2013 08:14 PM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

In the wood shop today #19: Pouring and polishing an epoxy bar top counter

01-28-2013 02:52 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a custom home bar built from Bubinga and Walnut using solid and veneered wood. The counters will be protected from water using System Three Mirrorcoat a 2 part 2:1 epoxy finish that self levels and cures crystal clear. I had to give the counter a light sand and through 400 to 4000 then used a 3 step polishing process to bring the counter back to a beautiful gloss shine.

Great Grandad's bar

01-21-2013 11:01 AM by needshave | 10 comments »

I thought you might like to see the bar made by my great Grandad. He made the bar for my grandfather in the 1800’s. My grandfather owned a tavern/bar and it was used there for decades. His son, my uncle, took over the bar and inherited the bar with it. It stayed there until the close of the tavern around 1960. My father then took the bar and used it as a back counter in his business. I remember it well. It was painted grey with red trim and and had pressed hardboard on the top. I rememb...

My First Shop Made Tool

10-07-2011 01:20 AM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

When I purchased my lathe it was a floor display and had been used a couple times for Demos at the local Woodcraft. I got a great deal on it because I had called the Woodcraft in Seattle up and inquired about on hand stock and was told they had three so I took the journey across Puget Sound to pick one up. Upon arrival I was informed the associate had made a mistake and they only had the floor model on display. Well, long story short, I bought the display for a great deal but with one catch. ...

Journey into Woodworking

07-03-2011 06:16 AM by sdwrage | 11 comments »

I have been doing web development for over five years and, until recently, was content with the work that I have done. It wasn’t until I moved from Florida back to my quaint home town of Athens, OH that I really started getting a feel for where I wanted to go in life. Growing client expectation...
