http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz0cog7BHKA In this video I go over how to cut the dividers and the side panels and the back. I stack cut the dividers on the jig saw because you get better results when you stack cut. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...
My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...
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...
Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...
A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
Routing the strips Red cedar My routing saw table The strips 6×19milimeterBundeling 10 stripsSave on a roofrack
today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...
Went for a walk with my wife last night. I have been eyeing this large dumpster behind an old house in our neighborhood for the last few days. I’m not sure whether they’re preparing the house for demolition, remodeling or moving, but the dumpster was full. I took a closer peek in the dumpster last night and went back with the van after we got home. Click the thumbnail pic for a larger view. I guess they tore out a cedar lined closet in the house. I now have enough 3&...
Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.
