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...

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 ...

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...

Camperizing the truck from the wood shop. #4: Considerations for construction materials and weight issues.

09-06-2013 02:58 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Now those that have seen pics of my truck now I drive a half ton pickup. Okay so the payload rating is actually well over that, actually well over 3/4 of a ton, but they are doing funny things with truck ratings and classifications these days. Still weight is a consideration when building any sort of truck bed camper. Working with my Sketchup drawings, and looking at the assemblies it occours to me that it needs to be lightweight for 2 reasons really. #1. Hauling capacity of the truck i...

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

01-18-2011 11:40 PM by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #1: Cannon project information and getting started.

06-23-2016 10:25 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 11 comments »

I’ve received an exciting project recently that I will update as it gets completed. The cannon was made in 1844 by Daniel Treadwell, and is property of the US Navy and will be place in front of the Marine HQ building on base here at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. My job will be to prep and paint the cannon and build a carriage for it to sit on. The carriage needs to match the company emblem so it won’t be historically correct. With that said my wood choices are unlimited. ...
