How I built the Timber frame Staircase

12-11-2017 05:13 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

You can watch it be built on YouTube Or read about it below I built this timber frame staircase from reclaimed beams that came from another client’s house a few miles up the road. The beams use to support a pergola, that was torn down during their remodel. We templated the area where the stairs where going to go and brought it back to the shop and premade them. The install was fairly straightforward as they were already in assembled in sections. All that was left was to put them in ...

Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...

Christmas Gifts #1: Toy Machine Shed 2017 Planning/Brainstorming

12-04-2017 10:27 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

What do you buy for the farming addicted tween who has every farm implement/tractor/combine under the sun? Nothing. You make him a machine shed for all of his toys. This year, instead of trying to figure out what to buy my eldest son, I decided to try my hand at making him something. He’s been hoarding boxes for years to use as sheds for his farm toys, and this year I decided that I’m tired of the motley assortment of cardboard boxes lying around with tractors in them, so I’...

No, I didn’t get anything done on the mobile table saw and cabinet base.Yes, I got sidetracked – but it was a good thing! REALLY! Started off looking for 2×3’s to act as connecting pieces between the cabinets. Ran into this mess:and this:and this:Seriously – can you find the 8-foot long 2×3’s? It took me over 5 minutes and I’m the one who put it “there”. So, I sat down and thought – ”This has to be fixed. Wasting time...

Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 3 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...
