What’s happing in the shop for December 10, 2009 . Today I’ll be working mostly on a loft bed. This is a little different design then I normally do, so it may be slow going. The other two in the shop will be working on drawer units. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:<div></div>

The Leg vice starts out 1 1/2×8 x34” Near table top height. The top tapers to the bottom in mine and the others I saw so that the bottom flexes first when its used. Mine Is 1/4 inside the leg width and 8”inches at the top.. You want the top face to drop its dimension down to the screw and then taper so that it looks like a coffin kinda… Here is a picture of it done and laying on the leg its to be mounted on.. I Already chopped and fitted the bottom of the ...
NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world and the “Cash for Toys Program”, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year. Santa tells reporters in his yearly press conference that, along with recovery effort, many other factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft have made his schedule very demanding. ...
Got the two beds and the bookcase built in record time, two days. It help that the customer will apply the finish. I finished them up on Saturday just before time to go home.

Today I’ll be building a pair of murphy wall with a bookcase separating them. This will be the version I call the Hudson Bay. It is our simple Alpine with some molding added to the face. I use a stock molding found at a local hardwood supplier. They will be built unfinished in maple. The customer will finish it themselves. The bookcase I plan on making it a little shorter and a little shallower in depth then the two murphy beds. I am doing this so that the crown molding will w...
I did some proportion work and decided I need 6” wheels. The wheels I found have barring that are made for a ½” axle. For the axle, I went to steel supplier and had them cut some 43” pieces for me. For the trucks I glued up some MDF to come up with a 3” thick block. I sanded down the corners at an angle just to give it some interesting lines and not just a plain cube. I have the axle and the trucks. I needed to find a why to attach them together. My original thought was to use a...
A deck bench seats two or more people so they can enjoy viewing from the deck. Good deck benches can be built practically without much expense. If we want to, we can build a deck bench ourselves. You have a nice deck with a great view, but what is missing? How about a nice deck bench to sit on and relax as you enjoy that great deck. This bench can be the perfect addition to your deck and believe it or not this is not the type of project you have to hire some expensive contractor for. No...
I am back from camp and ready to see what was completed. I left with most parts cut out and at least on example of the part that were to be built. I save a copy of my notes online so that I could give instructions from camp if needed. Click on the pictures to see all them. (Good luck with deciphering them). Did have as much done as I would have liked to but that is what I expected. Nothing got totally completed, there was a lot of skipping around. Here are some pictures: For mor...
