Christmas Gifts #3: Finished Toy Machine Shed! Christmas 2017

12-26-2017 09:44 PM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

Whew! We made it, just in the nick of time! 10 minutes to midnight on Christmas Eve we put the last touchup paint on it in preparation for the big day. Spoiler: The boy LOVED it! :-) Details: Roof and floor: 1/4” plywood Trim: 1/4” thick poplar that I sawed strips about the thickness of a popsicle stick with the bandsaw and glued on. Walls: 1/2” thick plywood. 5 tiny hinges for the roof, wish they were white, but too lazy and not enough time to paint them. ...

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #2: Preparing The Stock

11-29-2016 03:13 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall. I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces. My planer has brand new blades in it and ...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #1: Starting Out

11-29-2016 02:47 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Being my first project on here and my woodworking skills are rather limited, bare with me as I post bits and pieces and try to make sense of it for you all. Christmas is coming upon us quickly and as usual, I am in a rush to figure out gifts for the family. Being a holiday that society forgot the real meaning of… my wife and I decided to give the family a Scofield Study Bible to help reinstate the true purpose of the day. Of course, no worthy book is complete without a proper cont...

Memories of summer birthdayand a few gifts that still make me smile This summer in the end of June I held my birthday at the workshop.As you can see I was spoiled by some of the guests. One of the guests were my friend Flemming, he is the reason I have a collection of pocket knifes now, yes it’s true he gave me so many during the last couple of years that I became a collector without even knowing it. ;-)This day was no different, Flemming brought several knifes and a bottle of Jac...

Japanese, Russian, Danish teapot lidlife is a miracle Some time back I got a unexpected mail from Russia, a man wrote me that his wife’s teapot got a broken lid and that he would love if I could make her a new.

So yes nothi...
