Bathroom Remodel #1: Creative Bathroom Remodel

02-05-2010 10:24 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 3 comments »

Well, I was supposed to just replace the old vanity with some cabinets that they got from a friend, because the cabinets they got were in better condition than the ones currently in the house. Seemed pretty straight forward, nothing really difficult or interesting to see here, folks, so move along…..... Oh, wait, nothing fits right, go figure. Yes, their simple switch out turned to a bit more, but they are really enjoying it. I had to put together 3 cabinets, bring them out ...

Book shelves from reclaimed wood and shutters #1: Beginning with shutters

01-30-2010 05:47 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 4 comments »

I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #2: More pictures

01-30-2010 05:22 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 2 comments »

I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.

Upholstered Queen Bed Construction Process #2: Headboard and Footboard Frame Construction

01-21-2010 05:56 AM by Tango | 0 comments »

Today I made a big advance in the construction of the frames for the Headboard and the Footboard. My son’s help make the difference in speed!!We cut all the pieces to size and mounted it according my plan. CUTLIST was a huge help in calculating everything. To put the frames together I used Titebond II Glue and 1.25” long FastCap Screws I bought a long time ago and had no use for it until now. These screws are self tapping and did a wonderfull job holding all in place. So far the H...

Pet Peeve - 2

12-30-2009 06:25 PM by richgreer | 5 comments »

I own 4 different tools that require a drill bit chuck key (large drill press, small drill press, lathe and a hammer drill). Everyone requires its own chuck key and none of them are interchangeable. Couldn’t we have some standardization on chuck keys?

Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...

Drill Clutch, Use them or lose Them?????? #1: Drill Clutch, Use Them or Lose Them?????

12-12-2009 09:21 PM by Tony Z | 25 comments »

Here’s a quick poll for everyone. Almost all cordless drills now come equipped with a clutch with up to 20+ settings. Does anyone out there use them???? I keep mine set on the most powerfull setting, or on my drills, the setting with the picture of the drill bit. If I need some finesse, in driving a screw for example, I just take my time and feather the trigger. What are your thoughts? I will post the results after I get enough responses. Please answer with the following answers: A. ...

Tall Oak Mirror ... getting warmer :-)

12-02-2009 04:19 AM by NBeener | 22 comments »

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...
