Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

08-05-2013 08:13 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #7: Carving Roses wasn't very Rosie!

01-22-2008 10:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 11 comments »

The first Rose handle I carved, didn’t give me any trouble, but I wasn’t satisfied with the light color of the sapwood. So I decided to go with the darker heartwood. I cut some rose patterns for a couple of Roses. I started carving a couple of flower petals, & snap! the flower broke off of the 3/8” stem. So I decided to go with a 1/2’’ stem, & the same thing happened, SNAP! The burly heartwood is kind of brittle. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Scobie Box #3: Gluing up and starting to add finish

12-09-2014 03:53 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Gluing up was quite an interesting time with so many pieces to go together at once. I did the ends first then dry fitted everything to make sure all of the joints would fit up square prior to adding the glue and clamping (using the offcuts from the legs when clamping) I have added one coat of Danish Oil but need to get the lid on before I can finish the handles and add finish to them.

Extremely Average #15: I have just two questions

01-17-2010 12:57 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...
