The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...
A music video of some of my past projects. The projects range from painted floors to a home bar with a built in waterfall. Some other projects include: water walls, fountains, foil finishes, faux finishes, leafing, gilding furniture projects and a faux copper ceiling. Please leave comments and let me know what you think:)
Scott shows you how to use your skills on the lathe to make any size plug to conceal any bolt, screw, or other hardware you use to fasten your joints and tenons. To see more of Scott’s work, visit www.SanJuanCarpentry.com
Finally got to the point where I could try the waterslide transfer decals out. David’s instructions were much clearer than what came with the product. Having already used a different first coat, than in his demo (oops), and not being sure of compatability issues (not to mention wanting to wait for a few coats of spray finish to dry) I tried using them unprotected (as per the manufacturers instructions). They worked great – slid off perfectly. I didn’t find them too ...
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
A few weeks back, I did a horse project for a customer. She sent over a picture of a painting hanging on her wall and wanted a piece done of this painting. I absolutely loved the picture that she sent over and was extremely excited to start this project. There is a few ways that I could have done this project for my customer 1) Making the pieces follow the musculature of the horse’s body or 2) Having the pieces follow the shading in the picture. I decided to do this piece with option two in h...
I have low ceilings in my basement, so I needed doors that are about 6” shorter than standard. I would have just bought them, but the factory would just cut 6” off the bottom leaving me with a 2” bottom rail which would have looked very unproportional. I didn’t want to spend the time or money on building frame and panel doors so I spent a week wracking my brain until I came up with this method. Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzE470rqnmk!
What’s happening in the shop for July 10, 2010 . Today I should spend most of the day in the back showroom doing the final assembly for Blake’s murphy bed, bookcase, and desk. I’ll also be taking pictures to write the assembly instructions for it all.For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
Yet another project in the making. My wife asked me to build her a scrap book cabinet to put all her many papers and books, glues, tapes, ribbons, etc. Enough to build a 5 ft. by 5 ft. by 14” deep with about 20ish slots for paper, 10 drawers, ribbon holders (which I haven’t quite figured out yet) shelves to hold the many albums she has already made. Using 3/4 ply. with oak veneer. (Lowes on sale) and press board 1/2 thick. Also plan to use some oak facing on the drawers, and po...
custom,furnitureThis blog is on my website, but I thought I’d post here as well. It doesn’t have a whole lot to do with woodworking other than how it relates to treating customers, but it’s kind of a funny story. re’-bar- a steel bar or rod used to reinforce concreteker-fuff’-le- an annoyingly trendy synonym for a dustup Not so long ago my wife, the sweet and lovely Penny, and I went shopping for a new bedMore… and ventured into one of the ubiquitous ...
