Dust Collector Shed #2: We have a door!

01-17-2018 02:25 PM by FrogHouse | 3 comments »

Wow. People actually read my first blog post. Not sure I was expecting that. Thanks to all that read it and a special thanks for those that commented. Before we continue, here are a few photos of it in progress. When we last left the shed (and when I say ‘we’ I mean ‘me’), the shingles were up the OSB in place and three walls were wrapped in Tyvek. The next thing needed was a door! I purposely covered the entrance when I put up the OSB. I built the door structure and installed it on th...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Handmade Portraits #2: Handmade Portraits: Armor Guitars

09-26-2008 07:52 PM by Etsy | 3 comments »

James Peters enjoys what he does. Waking up every morning and working in his woodshop in the back of his house is the “bees knees” as James says.   Once there, he makes custom acoustic guitars. He is, as it’s called, a luthier based in Springfield, TN. After moving to Nashville in 1989 and having some success in the country music songwriting industry, a friend asked James to repair his guitar. It was after that experience that he realized it would be easier &mdas...

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...
