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...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #5: Fitting hardware and mortising out crossmembers.

07-25-2016 08:21 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

It doesn’t seem like it but I put in a long day and got a lot done. I put the main runners together and fit the hardware. Then measured again and did some layout work. I was then able to cut the cross members. Once I had that done I started to cut out the main runners to accept the crossmembers. These will be all threaded as well as glued. Any members have any tips for boring thru main runners and cross members? The paint turned out really nice.

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...

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

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Sapele Maple Coffee Table #1: Planning

03-19-2014 05:57 AM by Jordan | 0 comments »

I have been planning a coffee table project for about a year now and it has gone through a number of design concepts. I have always wanted to build a table out of walnut and contrast is with maple accents. This is a recurring theme in my projects. I struggled with the theme and style for a long time. The intent was to be simple, but with some minor details that stand out and increase the technical aspect of the work. I also like square and simple lines with solid members. I am not a fan ...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!

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...

The old time woodshop journals #2: From the shop to the fields to the bench

05-11-2012 09:38 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

In the ongoing appreciation of being so lucky to work with wood I thought a small field trip was in order. The trip was designed to get even more in contact with the reasons and values of what makes the fascination of wood work ever growing in my life. It is far too inviting to get lost in the tangle of parkway traffic, impatient attitudes and a breakneck pace that actually lends to a greater amount of stress than one person really would ever believe. How would I be able to have the proper...
