Some missing parts finished Bonding layer boards again together Filling spaces in frame corners I finally found similar frame, so I made a possible design of missing parts. Original photo for comparsion.
I made some alterations, became disgusted with it, and am returning back to the design. The first picture is the current incarnation. I have the foot rest off right now because I am leaning towards something different. I’m also considering redoing the top, making it adjustable and possibly more circular in design. A bigger change is thinning the legs down from 2.25” to 1.5”. Will see where it goes. The second picture was the direction I went in when I was fed-up with the des...
I saw on Chris Wong’s website, Flair Woodworks, an announcement for the Shop Stool Build-Off. And since I don’t currently have a shop stool, I am contemplating doing the build on January 25. I thought if I do this, I want to set an additional rule for myself: I will not buy any wood for this project, and so it must all be made from scraps. The largest scraps I currently have are the plywood leftovers from the Shop Air Cleaner build. This evening I started messing around with SketchUp an...
My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...
For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...
For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...
