Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

243 days ago by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

Whole House Remodel #3: Large home made moldings

247 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

Here are a few pictures, from the past couple of days, of the sequence of making moldings and of them put up. I don’t know how large fancy moldings are made but this was my solution to doing it. The ogee’s are made with one router bit then stacked on top of each other. The large partial cove moldings are made with Rockler’s table saw crown molding maker. It is a nicely made jig that lets you set up your table saw to cut into wood using the round blade to gouge out a large co...

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2.

That stuffs surprisingly easy to use and the result is very nice. Its not the last time I will use ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1147: A Little Work - A Little Play

291 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I often write about the importance of balance in our lives. I think the subject comes up so often (at least for me) because achieving balance isn’t something that just happens and then we are done with it. It is something that needs to be adapted as a lifestyle and attended to continuously. As soon as we forget about trying to keep a balance, something always seems to come along to upset things and throw them out of kilter. But that is just how life is. I often have aspirations of...
