Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

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...

Baby Tender #1: Blood, Sweat, ....

04-03-2010 07:47 PM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I’ve put plenty of sweat into this project but today was the first blood. I cut myself on a plane blade clearing a shaving from the mouth. I guess that means it is still a pretty sharp blade. No tears yet but I’m sure when I put the little one in he’ll add plenty of them. Here are a few pics of the project so far. ” target=”_blank”>http://i827.photobucket.com/albums/zz192/michaelmbuffalo/Baby%20Tender/DSC02384.jpg

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

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...

Dynamike's Woodshop #2: Rocker Recliner

08-15-2015 03:56 PM by Dynamike | 15 comments »

So last Thursday I look over at the neighbors house and there’s a recliner upside down, sitting out in the trash. hmmmm I thought. I’ll bet there’s some springs and levers and such I could use off of that! After looking at it up close I said damn I’ll just take the whole thing. I had to clean all the dog hair, dust and webs off of it and…she cleaned up nicely. I tossed it up on the bench and stretched it out to see just how this thing works. It took about an hour but I came up with ...

what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

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

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...

Ahhh the seven stitch cedar pencil box

04-04-2009 12:46 AM by bluchz | 6 comments »

The box is almost ready for glue up. My daughter wanted to make something and i had some small cedar blocks lying around. We got the it all ready to glue up, but i needed to chisel out where the hinges go, hence the seven stitches. Well i learned something today, chisel’s are sharp and will cut you lol. i guess i knew that but needed some negative reinforcement.so anyway the kids now know how to sew skin and daddy’s tetnous( yeah i can’t spell that one) shot is now current. ...

Prospecting for Wood #4: Last Night's Dumpster Dive

06-09-2007 05:31 PM by Paul | 6 comments »

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&...
