shop/shed? gotta make some room #3: (October 2013 tour) some rearranging and organization

309 days ago by Tugboater78 | 5 comments »

between my constant war with my phone and losing pictures and forgetting to even do much posting on this blog they are few and far between. Not to mention putting a lot of overtime at work and life in general..you all know how that goes. it’s not a big deal anyway, I am an insomniac so this gives me something to do while I am up all night.. I almost bought a new/used 14×24 shed this past weekend, but i didn’t get back with the sellers quick enough and they sold it late sat...

Texas Star Inlay #2: Completing the Inlay

315 days ago by cakman | 3 comments »

Here is some more progress of the inlay. I started off by lightly tacking the star in the position I wanted and tracing the outline with a sharp knife. Light strokes at first and then gradually deeper. And then using a chisel to remove a little v notch. This allows me to cut slightly deeper with the knife and establishes the outside shoulder of the inlay mortise. It also gives me a visual barrier to look out for on the next step. I chucked up a small straight cutting bit in m...

Leg Vise, Shop made #1: How many times can you remake something?

332 days ago by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

Originally i was going to include my adventures in vise making, into my blog about my new work bench. But the farther along i got and the more mistakes i made, the more i realized it should be separated. Here was my goal:1. build a leg vise that is extremely strong and worked well.2. Not to spend a fortune (ie +$300 for the BenchCraft kind)3. Try out some new ideas – could i use regular threaded rod? – is there a better way to make the stop on the bottom part of the ...

Southwest end tables #7: Finishing the Border

336 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...

337 days ago by Esko Lehtovaara | 0 comments »

It’s now 24.9. It all started on 26.8. (with renting a sement mixer. It took only 6 hours for us to get the slab done.) Since then allmost every day has been a workday. Maby 3 days has been lazy day with only 2-3hours of work. Still. I started to be quite fedup. Rest of the work is a piece of cake: digging a ditch for the rain water. I’ll put a tube on the bottom and fill with gravel 008. The “door” from the old ‘pihatto’. Pihatto is the house for the hors...

Southwest end tables #5: Started the second table.

341 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I thought I’d be a little more detailed about my Southwest tables with this blog. Lessons learned, Lessons still learning. Yep. You might find it handy. What I don’t have is a thickness planner, a workbench or a joiner. Great fun huh? Here is the first one in progress. Still haven’t added shellac up to this point. For starters, I built up a good sturdy substrate. I used 1, 2 foot by 4 foot piece of birch 1/2 inch plywood from Home Depot. I think it came ...

A workbench from salvaged wood?

345 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well at least the wood came from such things as a dumpster. Cut a few things Had to cut a place for some legs to go. and a few cut-outs about 4” up from the leg’s bottom edge. A stretcher was needed between the two legs. And after all the legs, and stretchers are assembled, time to make a toolwell area too. A 5/4×3-1/2” piece off an old door, for a front apron, regular 2×4s for the ends and a 2×4 for the back apron. Had some lap joints to mill o...
