New home for the horses #2: The End. Finaly.

342 days ago by Esko Lehtovaara | 0 comments »

It’s now 24.9. It all started on 26.8. (with renting a sement mixer. It took only 6 hours for us to get the slab done.) Since then allmost every day has been a workday. Maby 3 days has been lazy day with only 2-3hours of work. Still. I started to be quite fedup. Rest of the work is a piece of cake: digging a ditch for the rain water. I’ll put a tube on the bottom and fill with gravel 008. The “door” from the old ‘pihatto’. Pihatto is the house for the hors...

A workbench from salvaged wood?

350 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well at least the wood came from such things as a dumpster. Cut a few things Had to cut a place for some legs to go. and a few cut-outs about 4” up from the leg’s bottom edge. A stretcher was needed between the two legs. And after all the legs, and stretchers are assembled, time to make a toolwell area too. A 5/4×3-1/2” piece off an old door, for a front apron, regular 2×4s for the ends and a 2×4 for the back apron. Had some lap joints to mill o...

Saw bench build

359 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laid out some toys but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Set up a “high-tech workbench” after using a “saw tub” to cut what I needed off a plank. Then the rest gets clamped in place Then clamp the new saw bench top in place for a little joinery work used this old saw to make a few cuts checked the angled parts with a gauge, and a small handplane to smooth it down. the chisels did most of the removal work. angle is about 12 degrees. Time to ma...

CC's Book Case #6: Face Frame

364 days ago by SquintyPolock | 2 comments »

It’s been such a beautiful summer that I haven’t spent any time in the shop, and the project has suffered. My wife reminded me this present is way overdue (graduation was in June). That lit a little fire and I got back to work over this long Labor Day weekend. It really felt good to get back in the shop and start building again – really cleared my mind of life’s clutter. So, I put on some feet… Then, I built the face frame. I started with just the four ...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #1: Zero Clearance Insert

384 days ago by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Well last night I was piddlin round with an idea to make a ripping fence/jig to attach to my circ saw. The one that came with it apparently grew feet and walked away, when i was on my last boat trip. I have some 9 and 10 foot long SYP 2×10-12s i want to rip the pith out of for a future project. Longest board i can try to rip on my table saw is 8’ give or take an inch. I was trying to rip out some ~1/4” strips to frame out the circ saw base on a piece of plywood. One of the st...

Monster Dog House #1: Foundation and Framing

400 days ago by milbert | 4 comments »

After 4 years I decided my boxer dog, Raiden, needed a friend. After it was decided that his new friend would be a mastiff that could be 3 times (!!) his size, it seemed like a good idea to build them a dog house in the yard that would be big enough for both of them. The project was started with some general dimensions in mind but from there was pretty much off the cuff. It is completed so I will do multiple posts as time permits to show the process. Foundation: 2-3 inches deep of g...

Grand Pa's Tools #1: In Over My Head? Most Likely.

400 days ago by Ed_Wilcox | 1 comment »

So, I managed to grab a Stanley #604 hand plane, a bit and brace, a chest hand drill, and a mini-anvil from my grand father’s shed. He passed away several years ago from Alzheimer’s so it is a special gift to have a couple of his tools. The Stanley was covered in rust, but not as bad as I thought. I wish I had taken a before picture, but if you look at the other tools, you may have an idea of the condition the hand plane was in. I was able to remove the rust quite easi...

Greenhouse #1: Here's the Scoop

409 days ago by Steve | 0 comments »

I am building a greenhouse and wanted to post some info here about the greenhouse. I just can’t deal with posting in both places, so have decided because the greenhouse relates more to gardening to post my info in my gardening blog. So if your interested check it out over in GardenTenders. I am providing sufficient details, so if someone choose to do so, you could build a replica of my greenhouse.

Tapering / straighening jig #4: She ain't pretty

414 days ago by mIps | 3 comments »

But she’s done. Was able to finish up the jig today by making the hold-downs and a couple of knobs. Also added in the pin on the handle and cut the reference edge. The hold downs and knobs I cut with my jig-saw table. They’re ugly, but I think they’ll work. Maybe someday in the future I’ll make some that look better. Looking forward to using this on my next project, adding a lumber rack to my garage-shop. Keep working and be safe.

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

418 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...
