Yesterday I had the great privilege to meet Troy Yocum, and Iraq Veteran who is walking across America for his charity which helps grant wishes for other Veterans and hopefully get a national Day for Deployed Soldiers. Even if you can’t donate, you can help out with this just by sharing his amazing story, so please take time to check out his website and do whatever you can in whatever way you can. He’s just one man, taking one step at a time to achieve a GREAT Goal. DRUMH...
As usual, no project ever goes the way I envision it. Even projects that I design 1st tend to take a left turn at some point. And so it is that I have hit that left turn in this project. With the top finished and ready to be cut for the miter track and the router opening I was left with trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and whether or not I wanted an insert plate. Two things happened which are going to change the direction of this project a little bit. The 1st was finall...
Here is the link to my woodworking blog. Don’t forget to look at the archives. There are a couple videos of a window sill I redid, with nothing but planes. traditionalwoodworks.blogspot.com
So I was assigned the task of designing and building shelving units for the fireplace at my girlfriends house. I have been sketching prints all day and finally converted them onto my computer. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I plan on using pocket hole joints (using the kreg jig) and filling them in as the units will be painted white and wood/ grain/ joint detail will be covered. The first picture can be considered void because the dimensions are not correct to what I want;...
Here is something that I hope y’all can use. Homemade chisel covers that will actually stay on the chisel when carried in a toolbox. So that I can haul chisels to a job in my toolbox tray I make these covers to protect them from damage. I have also found them to be handy when I’m working at a workbench because they’ll keep the chisel from rolling off onto the floor. Chisel safety is also improved.To make them I use plastic sports drink tops and cut a slot with my coping saw....
I have been looking around and I have found the perfect sign that i want to make. I will use a 6’‘X2’ peice of cedar and carve ”Love Shack” on it then I will paint the inside with a glossy black paint!!!!
Here’s some encouragement for the weekend warriors. This is my shop. One half of the wifes garage. I try to keep everything against the wall and pull it out as needed. My tool cabinet in the center is my first real project. I would encourage any beginners (as I am one) to practice your craft on your own stuff. Don’t try to make a Maloof stool as your first project. Heres why. You can’t tell in the pic’s but the tool cabinet has half blind dove tails on one ...
Hello LJ’s, Last week I started my own blog with the help of blogger.com I also wanted to do something like this to come in contact with more woodworkers. It also comes in handy when people want to know what i make. Now I can tell them to visit the blog and they can read all about it. The language is dutch because that’s easiest for me to write in. I’ve build an a translator and I want to know what you guys/girls think about my first setup. All comments are very wel...
There is possibly no greater challenge for functional art than standardization. For most makers, you’d sware it was a four letter, get-your-mouth-washed-out-with-soap, filthy, word. If you dare to utter “standardize” in your college art class, you are sure to receive an F on your next project. The world of art does not square with having to work inside set parameters. However, like it or not, it’s a fact that those of us that make things that are to actually be used must accept and deal w...
Well, went out and collected 7 pallets for my next project. As you all know, I like to re-purpose wood to do my projects. This one should be interesting as it’s a Dry Sink and will be done entirely with old wood pallets. I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with what I’m doing here. http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5487.jpghttp://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5488.jpg There are the links to the pics!
