Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

944 days ago by Sanman | 1 comment »

I ended up with a very large spline after playing with the jig. No worries, this is my pallet wood pile to practice with. As far as I can tell, this is a pine box with cedar splines, top, and bottom. My first attempt at routing an edge, lot’s of burs on the end grains. What causes that? The box came out nice. I made 45 cuts and glued together with out clamps. I used tape and checked my square before leaving it to dry. It seems to sit flat on the ts. I worked...

Workbench Build #37: Finishing up the Toolwell... All downhill from here.. I think..

354 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #30: Sailing along

331 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 9 comments »

Making the sail was an ideal time to overly complicate and over think the process… But I resisted my instinctive need to make things hard and just went with Shorty’s recommended measures and used two tape measures to define the shape of the sail. I just swung the ends of the tapes in their respective arcs until both ends met and voila a leg o mutton sail. Dead easy and fast. Shorty recommends duct taping along these lines and then cut along the tape. My first thought was to la...

Workbench Build #38: Final Assembly of the Top...

353 days ago by Airframer | 9 comments »

I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to put the top together. This did not go without it’s fair share of oh sh#t moments one of which almost had me starting the whole thing over almost.. But I’m getting ahead of myself.. I had planned to use pegs instead of bolts. I am trying to keep the number of mechanical fasteners to a minimum on this so lets have a go at it.. Marked out the location of the peg holes and drilled just the end caps.. Then fitted them and marked th...

Wood SCORE!!!

996 days ago by YBNORMAL | 13 comments »

This story starts off sad, but ends happily for me at least. A local sawyer passed away last month and the family is having trouble getting rid of all the “STUFF” he has acuminated in his long lifetime. One of the items that they were particularly interested in liquidating was his inventory of wood. LOTS OF WOOD. This gentleman had several large warehouses full of lumber of different kinds. Thousands upon Thousands of board foot of Cyprus, cherry, heart pine, SYP, white oak, r...

making a shadow box chest #1: My husband is retiring after 24 years of service in the US Navy

469 days ago by thejaegers | 5 comments »

__My husband is retiring, soon, after 24 years of service in the US Navy and I am in search of something special for him in terms of a shadow box. I am new to this site and have never “blogged” before so, here goes. I recently found a shadow box chest, a most impressive one I might add, on this web site and I would love to be able to find someone to make the same for me. Since I am new to this site it will not allow me to message the individual for information on this particular i...

The Chicken Coop

197 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...
