Lego Table #1: Design

11-22-2015 07:29 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

The Big Project of 2015 I think I’m warmed up now. On to the big project (there’s still a few more in the works—more on those later—I’ll work on them as time permits while parts dry/cure, etc., on this one…)A little background info… So, our kids have taken over the dining room table as their personal Lego emporium. We have crates of the little plastic blocks stacked up, blocking access to the table. Come holiday time in a few weeks, the Legos will be relegated to the laundry room in exi...

My Workshop Cleanup Journey #1: The Start of the journey

06-01-2015 03:17 AM by Joshua Oehler | 0 comments »

Well I am about to embark on a journey to take my 2 car garage and dedicate it to being a workshop. Oh and of course for my wife to be able to park her car in bad weather (or so she thinks…that’s the way I sold her on the idea anyways) I have grown tired of all the clutter, shuffling things around to work on anything, having to move lawn mowers, motorcycles, camping stuff and just about everything else just to have room to work on a project and also the opposite…having to...

The Bonfire Chair build blog

05-23-2015 09:01 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 14 comments »

This is the blog describing how i made this chair. For a long time I have had this corner of my garden that have a place for a bonfire. We use it a lot and the favorite is making pancakes using a pan on a long stick. My son loves it! But the place itself could use some help. Especially the chairs are a bit annoying. I keep them because they were a gift from a friend and have a fun story to them (they are made by the inmates of a local prison that houses long term prisoners): The ...

Window Seat Bookcase #1: The Design Process

12-18-2014 01:09 PM by jeffbranch | 3 comments »

My daughter is an avid reader and still prefers reading from a real book even though I think most 24 year olds are downloading books these days. Since books were stacking up on the floor, she asked me to build a second bookcase. The only space available was beneath two double hung windows. This meant the bookcase would need to be much more horizontal than vertical. She also liked the idea of something that she could also use as a bench. Here is what I came up with in SketchUp… ...

Designing a Chair #4: Chair Saga Part IV

11-04-2014 08:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Above: Take IV on the chair design. Sharp eyes will note that the seat is shorter and the wood overall is 1/2 inch narrower all around, 3 inches down from 3 1/2 inches. This version is screwed together without glue because I anticipate disassembling it and using the parts as patterns for production models. The clamps are holding the ledge pieces on which the seat will rest. They are glued on because I can work around them. Below: How to turn your table saw into a saw table: This chair...

A Strategy for Woodworking #29: Gathering

10-09-2014 01:41 PM by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

It is autumn, once our gathering time. For collecting ideas, it is always time. There is a designed world all around us. Ideas hanging from the rooftops and tree branches and scattered on the ground below our feet. A designed universe whether created by your particular deity or Ma nature or random atoms smashing together: the design of the world is astonishing. The key to it is opening your eyes. Look for forms, find patterns, see the symmetry around us. In the flock of birds, the march of...
