well i had some really good shop time today and got alot done. a lot of pictures so i will try to keep text to a minimum. as always first i started off cutting the board to manageable pieces. then milled them 1/8” heavy and let them do their moving and took them down to final size when i needed them. then i needed to glue up the panel for the top and here i am doing a dry glue up to get everything ready. after the glue up was done and the glue dried i took the panel out. flus...
Well, its been awhile now so i figured that it was time for another shop tour. i have made a lot of shop additions in the past few months and i have gone from just a kid with a few tools to this now having a fully funtional shop and being able to sell my work and taking in commissions. so here is my updated shop tour watch out it gets a little crazy at the end, but i left it in for giggles :) so i hope that everyone liked it. i’m really not sure what the next videos i am going t...
The cover of the roof with wood is finished. I made side rails on my own way. The view from underneath is satisfying for me.
Having recently returned from my first visit to an on line (?) purchase with which I have falled in love and has to be a wood workers dream. 3 yrs old with thermopane windows and doors,instant hotwater heater,2 baths etc. The inside is compleat to the point that the contractor did what was necessary as part of the house, loft, stairs etc. the prev. residents started to finish things inside while living there and while there are plenty of good intentions…consider a bath room shelf...
so my router table project has come to an end. i got my shipment from Lee Valley today and i am happy to say that everything is completed. first upon getting the 2’ T-track i cut it in half with a jigsaw and a metal cutting blade. then i epoxied the track into place. i used a board of mdf to distribute pressure and my two former table saw wings which are probably around 20 pounds each on top. then i just drilled for and installed the t bolts and put on the knobs. and when the fen...
My father made the flooring of the patio at our house, and we decided to construct a roof for it.This is what we have built so far: the main frame structure Thanks for reading and watching! I’m going to post more images as we get closer to finishing the project.
to make my routing work environment more enjoyable i added a few different dust collection systems to my router table. as well as showing the fence that i made for it. first I’ll start off with the fence. it has a 2” opening that goes up high about 3 1/2” to allow for higher bits. so the fence is about 6 inches high for maximum support. and about 2 inches longer than the router table on both sides for maximum work piece support on both the infeed and outfeed sides. so here i...
alright so now everything except for the fence is put together and it is looking awesome. i added the apron and plugged all my holes with birch plugs just for the looks and i put on a coat of poly just to make the birch plugs turn brown because they are end grain so it looks cool, no other reason. i am planning on making the fence and also some form of dust collection and some storage for router bits and a couple other things. maybe even put some French cleats there. so here is a video...
Well i got a good amount done today but not as much as i would have hoped. first i cut the slots for the t-tracks that will secure the fence. i ordered it and i don’t have it yet so i figured that i would cut the slots now so i can attach the router table to the saw and when i get the t-tracks just pop them in. now that everything having to do with the torsion box is completed (including the router being mounted, sorry no pictures) i will turn my attention to the legs. i just too...
Well folks! It’s finally done! This took a little longer than expected, because of the weather, & things. It’s amazing that it looks just like the SketchUp plan, but I think a tad better looking though. My Son, & his family really love it. It’s almost like a new room on their house. I also learned about the new way of staining treated lumber. They don’t recommend letting it dry out for 60 to 90 days. They say that if you treat it right a...
