Shop Stuff. #7: Wood Gloat

03-11-2010 04:30 AM by rsmith71 | 7 comments »

Just had to add my own free wood gloat. Last fall a friend of a friend decided to clean out his workshop. My friend called me and asked if I was interested. I couldn’t get there fast enough. We loaded up in my truck and hit the road. Let me say first I thought I might get 2 or 3 boards out of this trip but decided what the heck. We get there and talk to the guy and he’s decided he doesn’t have the room for everything he had and we started loading my truck up. And kept loadin...

A journey into the workshop. #7: The thought process so far on the bench. Veering away from the instruction video or sheet.

09-16-2009 10:32 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

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 ...

Serving Tray #1: The Beginning

06-06-2007 09:24 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

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...

Apartment Projects #22: The "Greatest" Picture Frame

07-20-2014 12:47 AM by littlecope | 20 comments »

Debbie and I love to rummage around at the backs of Department Stores (where they keep all the kitschy stuff) and search for Prints and Pictures to decorate our walls…We’re particularly fond of Photos, or artful representations, of the Icons of our generation… For example, we found this one waiting for us at a Target Store in Manchester… There are few alive who don’t recognize those four young men! Another that came home with us a little later was a Young M...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #29: Rudder nonsense!

09-03-2013 03:07 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

The partner and step line up nicely. I had a bit of a surprise when I discovered the mast was a bit thicker further up and would not fit through the partner. A bit of work with the block plane and all was good. There is a bit of reinforcing yet for the mast but it looks pretty good. I have the brace pieces cut, they just need to be painted and then mounted. I bored out the holes for the pintle bar. I ran into a bit of an obstacle in that I had not really factored in the bul...

Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

12-29-2011 10:25 PM 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...
