Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

Treadle Lathe workbench #4: The frame continues....

04-01-2009 01:12 AM by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

Working with reclaimed wood is rewarding but can be a real challenge. This particular wood is so hard, I broke a drill bit and got multiple screws stuck in the wood. Oh well, at least a tree wasn’t cut down for this project, yet! Today, I started some assembly. Check out my work. I also wanted to add another picture of the concrete portion of the flywheel for your review. I think I resolved the sizing issue. I was able to weigh the flywheel today and it weighed right at 80lbs.

My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

01-14-2008 05:55 AM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!

Tool chest update #6: Two more being test fitted

02-06-2014 11:09 PM by Dan Krager | 8 comments »

This is a project that has been on the list for quite awhile. As shown here, two more chests are being test fitted. Things seem to fit nicely and will help to get clutter from underfoot. One thing I learned is that the vintage saws I bought for restoration and use should have been measured! Handles take up a LOT of length. They will fit only because of slots cut in the top! Handles and finish need to be applied, but that will wait until warmer weather. If I finished them now, I’d b...

DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

Amazing Carving

01-12-2014 01:21 AM by Grumpy | 8 comments »

This came to me in an email. Too good not to pass on...November 20, 2013 In the NewsOne tree, four years of work and an indescribable amount of talent: that’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese wood carver chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see what he created.It all started out with a simple tree trunk….Then Zheng Chunhui, a famous wood carver, spent over four ye...
