Outdoor "Coffee" Table #1: Just an idea

07-11-2007 10:38 AM by Dorje | 14 comments »

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 ...

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...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #2: Gorilla Glue Contest

05-06-2010 02:31 PM by Jack_T | 0 comments »

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

A phone call from Santa this morning

12-26-2011 12:29 AM by Trev_Batstone | 5 comments »

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...
