Holiday Gifts #5: So Glad...

01-02-2016 12:40 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

...To be done with these planned gifts. I believe I must have been cursed from the beginning as I’ve never had such a horrid time trying to make something. I had to completely scrap my father’s first six-pack holder and make an entirely new one (after several childish hissy fits on my part). My mother’s gift was still being glued back together tonight, so it just needs to hold until tomorrow then they will be in their possession. Sheer stubbornness is the only reason thes...

Holiday Gifts #3: Reindeer Reborn

12-12-2015 01:27 PM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, after taking some time to get over my hissy fit about the rocking reindeer, I once again approached them – this time with a tube of E6000. I carefully glued all the broken bits back together and then proceeded with FINALLY attaching the rockers to the legs. This time everything stayed together (thank you epoxy!). I’ve had them sitting on a shelf for a few days now to let the epoxy cure, and I’m going to, with some trepidation, to take them back to the shop today to tr...

Holiday Gifts #1: Inspiration and Ideas

10-29-2015 12:28 PM by Sioranth | 2 comments »

I inadvertently have found myself in a position where there is an expectation of woodworking gifts for the holidays this year. I guess that’s what I get for posting all my little projects on Facebook where my family can see them. So, for my father I am going to be making a six-pack beer tote out of mahogany and quarter sawn sycamore. I’m hoping it looks as good as I envision it will when it’s finished. It’s going to have rare earth magnets for catching the bottle ca...

Texas Tech Pool Cue Rack #1: Design

11-15-2013 05:20 PM by ConstructionBoss | 2 comments »

My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...

I have put together a collection of my past projects that are relativity fast and simple to make. They make great gifts. Time to go out to the shop and make some sawdust! Any other good ideas!

"Crazy Generous" Gifts for the Workshop

05-23-2011 02:28 AM by robbinscabin | 4 comments »

Have you ever walked away from your Workshop after a project without doing the proper cleanup? Here’s why that’s a really bad idea! We had spent so much time building the log bed that we just didn’t bother to clean up. And after nearly a week of avoiding the basement entirely I was starting to feel pretty guilty…one day I even took my project out to the front yard to “work in the sunshine.” In reality I was avoiding the mess! But I wasn’t the o...

Learning Curve

12-29-2010 08:00 PM by DaveLeHardt | 6 comments »

There’s one lesson I seem to keep relearning, and that’s how much trouble I have working with sheet wood, MDF in particular. Not only is it bloody heavy, for the life of me, I cannot get a square corner cut on it, or get it cut to the right length/width. Well, I canif I can fit it on my tablesaw. And that I think is the problem. I’ve tweaked out the saw, miter gage (mostly), and fence so that I can get reliable cuts from it. But if I can’t fit the piece on the table sa...

Christmas projects #1: Christmas Presents.

12-27-2010 07:29 PM by tt1106 | 4 comments »

Well, I missed the Christmas deadline, but my daughters were still very pleased. My wife and I decided and told everybody last year that we were only giving gifts that we made. This was prompted by my daughters (3) all asking for shopping money. It was important to my wife and I that they know what the true meaning of Christmas is and to be thnakful for the many gifts they have been blessed with over the years. Namely, never going hungry….always having a roof over their heads…e...
