Stairs where there were no stairs

10-17-2010 10:39 PM by PetePW | 4 comments »

Bought a house with no front entrance… I was tired of people walking through my garage (AKA Shop) to get in the house. After a little Auto-CAD and alot of elbow grease, these are the fruits of my labour.

Work in Progress #1: Patio Side Table in Cedar

10-07-2010 02:10 PM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

I started this project a while ago, but because of work haven’t had much time to work on it. By the time I’m done, it should be just in time to put it up for the winter! Oh well. This is my first project entirely done with hand tools. This is the top, 20” square and 1 3/8” thick. The legs are 4×4’s but planed down to a little less than 3.5” I’m not sure if these M&T joints have an official name, but they’re more li...

cs1 kitchen challege

09-26-2010 01:26 PM by grizzman | 20 comments »

these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoya...

Question about finish

09-18-2010 02:19 PM by Tim Homoya | 4 comments »

I have sold my cedar table. I used an indoor/outdoor spar urethane on it. I believe three coats. I have always kept it indoors, they use it outdoors and after this spring and summer I see greying around edges and in spots. What is the best finish I can use to keep the cedar the nice red it was? And how deep will the greying get if not corrected now?

bandsaw #4: It's Resaw Recycling Time

08-28-2010 06:35 AM by twokidsnosleep | 3 comments »

I wanted a bandsaw to cut up wood into usable lumber.Now I am starting really small, but have had some initial success with the GO555P.So lets have a look.Pile of cedar fencing I had to replace due to rot at the bases I zipped them through the bandsaw and planed one side and one edge square, then resawed. Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

desktop Humidor - finished

07-22-2010 04:55 PM by Rick | 10 comments »

I’m making a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don’t smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one.The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). So I decided to make two at once. One for a friend and one for myself. Both cases are walnut. One has a cocobolo lid and the other a birdseye maple lid. Both will feature Brusso hinges. CONSTRUCTION:Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and b...

Wood Hoarder

07-20-2010 03:09 AM by danzaland | 7 comments »

I admit it. I am a wood hoarder. My garage has plenty of untapped talent in it. Tables, chairs, shelves, car ramps… Now just the time to do something with it all.One of my earliest gets was a brace that was rejected at the timberframe shop I worked for.I was able to locate a second one and decided it may hold up a vanity top one day. Those sticks on top were cut out of 8x timbers as a screen channel. Those are 1×2ish at varying lengths. Probably my most prized are these cut ...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

06-29-2010 08:39 PM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...
