Marine Corps Naval cannon project #2: The Brass

07-14-2016 03:03 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

I’ve received the brass hardware back from blasting and polishing. Now I can start cutting and laying out pieces for the carriage! I’ve spoken to several retired navy sailors and found out that people would take spent shells and or parts from decommission ships and cast them into other parts. So WM.C. Capehart was probably the person that made the cast pattern and the U.S.S. Vulcan was a repair ship that served beginning in the 1940’s and was scrapped in 2006. Here is the Wi...

Canoe #4: Finish up the hull

04-23-2010 11:02 PM by Woodcanuck | 3 comments »

I’ve been negligent in wrapping this up….but here’s the next stage, finishing up the hull itself. I out last episode, we had finished up the one side and now we’ll close it all up. Before we close up the other side, we’ve got to trim down the first side to get a nice clean line to work with. Nothing too scientific here, for the most part we eye-balled the parts around the stems and laid a strip down the keel-line to mark off the center. Getting the keel-l...

Cedar wood gloat (saved from the burn pile)

11-05-2011 03:35 AM by cdbridge39 | 3 comments »

I got some free cedar wood the other day. It was in the burn pile on the bottom I tied a strap to pull it out. It was a 12 foot log about 20” across the butt. I sawed it into 4’ sections so I could haul it in my truck. I blocked some of it up for turning blanks. I guess the rest I will saw up into lumber to make stuff (lol) !!! Just think someone was going to burn it.

Building an Outdoor Shower at the Beach

06-16-2009 01:02 PM by npcarey | 3 comments »

My next big project is to construct a new outdoor shower enclosure at the back of my mother-in-law’s beach house. The current phase is design, which I think I’ve finally finished using Sketchup. I had been struggling with Sketchup until I heard about a web site called http://www.sketchupforwoodworkers.com where there were tutorials specifically for using sketchup for woodworking. That got me hooked and within a week of starting Sketchup I’ve come up with a very complete m...

Routing a Sign #1: Setting up the design

09-25-2012 03:07 PM by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

I make a lot of hand painted signs, but now and then I do a routed sign. They take much longer to complete, but they are just as creative and fun. Someone who saw me at a craft show contacted me to make her a routed sign, so I photographed the process. The finished sign looks like this: Now I’ll explain how the process goes Valerie wanted a basic sign to hang outside that was 18” long. I chose cedar because of it’s ability to last outdoors and I cut a piece...

Cedar Chests Project

02-17-2010 05:52 PM by HenryH | 3 comments »

Cedar Chests My latest project is the construction of two solid Cedar blanket chests. The inspiration for this project came from a traditional source, my wife. After another summer of moths eating tiny holes in her winter sweaters she made the suggestion that it would be good to have a Cedar Chest to store her sweaters. I was not enthusiastic because I have built other chest and I was thinking of building something new. But, just a couple of days later a colleague at work approached me about ...

Slow Days at the Shop. #6: Finally got to those stair rails

12-11-2015 09:36 PM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

Earlier in this series I mentioned a set of stair rails I was supposed to be building for one Mrs Customer, a couple of towns away from my town of Laporte. I got distracted by any number of things and just got back to them this week. The previous stair rails were built to match the existing porch rails. They had deteriorated sufficiently that they had become a hazard and Mrs Customer wanted them replaced in the same style, as her porch rails are in good shape. There were a couple ...
