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

357 days ago 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...

Adirondack Love Seat

930 days ago by PatBrownfield | 0 comments »

I’m new to the web site and I guess I forget a few details about my first project. I found the plans in the American Woodworker Great Book of Woodworking Projects. I made the love seat out of construction grade western red cedar that I purchased at a local Lowes. I finished it with General Finishes Outdoor Oil. Thanks for the positive feedback. More projects in the works. I hope to post more really soon!

2334 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 8 comments »

We usually take the winter off of working in the shop, we spend the winter months trapping bobcats. Most of the time I am home with the kids and cathing up on much needed office work.

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

372 days ago 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...

Baby Tender #3: Rockers almost ready

1587 days ago by mpmitche | 2 comments »

Here is a pic of the skeg screwed onto the hull and the rockers mocked up. I still need to drill the rockers for the 1” dowel that connects them. Once this is done everything can get the final sanding and be attached. It’s finally starting to look like a rocker.

My New Shed

139 days ago by chuckv00 | 1 comment »

We were looking for a garden shed for our tools and gardening stuff. We have a big backyard so we wanted a 10’ x 10’.The instructions were easy to understand and it took us about 6 hrs to put up from the time we opened the box. We had a bit of trouble putting on the last part of the roof, but all it took was a quick email and they got back to us quickly.We have since had several people comment on our ‘good looking’ shed and are surprised how inexpensive it was. Happy t...

Wood Gloat (almost)

1308 days ago by Don | 5 comments »

The power company had to cut down my Cedar tree because it had overgrown an access gate and they couldn’t get into it. Before I had a chance to ask them to leave it in 10’ logs so I could get it milled they had it cut into firewood lengths. :( So if you see me posting a ton of small Cedar jewelry boxes next year you’ll know why … Or maybe I’ll finally buy a lathe and turn some big bowls.

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #3: Sanblasting

2025 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

This piece here is smaller and we are able to fit it in the blast cabinet. This is a lot nicer way to work, but man after a few days if this my neck gets a severe kink in it. The blast cabinet. After the red colored wood has been blasted. Now we need to shape the rough edges, sand, add the leg supports and glass supports.

Finish For Vegtable Planter

497 days ago by Litrenta | 0 comments »

I built a cedar deck a couple seasons ago and I’ve had a stack of the off-cuts sitting in my shop waiting for it to be used. In my part of Canada it’s still a littler cold at this time of year but I’d like to get some of my vegetables started so I decided to build a “hot house”. Essentially it’s just a planter that sits directly in my garden with a piece of glass on top to form a mini-greenhouse. Once the weather is nice enough, I just remove the box and in...
