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...

Workbench Build #42: Attaching the Base #1..

08-22-2013 03:14 PM by Airframer | 9 comments »

I got started attaching the base to the top last night. Only got about halfway through it because it was late and I didn’t want to rush through it and mess something up. But so far so good. This is mostly a short picture post but you should have an idea of what is going on here.. Once more flip and rotate the top.. Then measure out the side stretcher by the leg vise for clearance of the chain bracket.. Then got everything drilled and ready for drawboring...

AGING OF SURFACE #2: REPLICA OF THE OLD RIGA TAVERN WINDOW. PICTURE WITH FRAME. STEPS OF THE WORK

05-27-2013 04:14 AM by Walther von Einik | 4 comments »

Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...

Matt's Cradle

10-27-2014 03:08 PM by JerryLH | 6 comments »

Hello, my name is Jerry, I’m retired and live in the country with my wife. I ‘very much’ consider myself a beginner furniture maker. This is the third cradle I’ve made – this one is for a Great Grandson. There are no metal fasteners in this cradle. This cradle is made from trees I cut from our property, eastern red cedar and elm – both considered trash trees. I have a small bandmill which I use to saw the trees into something I can us...

01-10-2011 02:20 AM by Dave | 2 comments »

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...
