A journey into the workshop. #7: The thought process so far on the bench. Veering away from the instruction video or sheet.
Considering the fact that this bench was designed by the guys at Fine Woodworking to be a skill builder, and I went off on my own tangent using the tools and resources I have to get to the same end. For example… The original plan called for 4×4 and 2×4 kiln dried construction grade lumber. I opted for rough cut 4×4 and 2×4 cedar lumber, planed, jointed, and then ripped it to nominal dimension. The grooves in the rails and spreaders are per the instructions cut ...
Its time to get back to work. Need to get some items ready for the holiday season. I just started carving more signs and have several formats to offer. Also working on some Xmas ornaments and jewelry boxes. I will post pictures of the items that have been ordered at this time as they are finished. I you have anything you would like worked on please send me a message.
OK, this is just plain sad… I KNOW I’m not the best of the best (yet) but I have to say it was mighty insulting that my entry in the “Not Just Any Box” contest received fewer points than Hap’s entry, “Cedar”. I mean, come on! It’s a picture of a LOG! Let’s compare: Does it have a lid?TD – YesHap – Nooooo… Is it boxy?TD – YesHap – Not so much Can you store items in it?TD – YesHap – ...
I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D
My new DowelMax arrived last week (see Mot's discussions re: the tool) but I haven’t had time or I haven’t made the time to try it out – until today. Why haven’t I tried it yet? Well I think I have to blame Tom’s daughter for this one—boy, if she can do it and I mess it up… oh my self-esteem will suffer!! haha Anyway, I have a birthday party to attend this Saturday and I want to make a gift rather than buying something. My goal is to make a gard...
We need a low outdoor table for drinks and food, etc., Something that would tie into the design of the chairs that we already have. My first inclination is to do this table in Western Red cedar (it’s sort of the default everything-outdoor-wood around here), but I keep thinking it would nice to try something else. Again, this is another project that I intend to do this summer, but I do have to side the house, and seal and paint it if I’m lucky (before the rains come again and ...
My step-son, who is a carpenter and fine woodworker (his full time career) phoned me this morning (Christmas day). We will be seeing him this evening for dinner at another relative’s place, so he asked me on the phone if I own a jointer yet, to which I replied “no”. He said he would bring me a Delta jointer to the dinner location this evening. I couldn’t believe my ears, but he said he has the jointer sitting in his workshop and it never gets used, so he is dona...
Well I had not planned on entering the Gorilla Glue Contest but now I am. OOPS! I had the scrap. I had the glue. I even had the finish. What I did not have was a project that would use the glue. As of last night that changed! I salvaged the cedar from an old picnic table and benches that I had retired a few years ago. It looked horribly weathered, but I assumed that underneath it would be ok, and who in their right mind would want to throw away an entire picnic table of cedar. Th...
