Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

1696 days ago by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

New saw

1698 days ago by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I just bought a skil 10 in 15 amp table saw from lowes and it will probably be at my house by friday. It comes with a stand and I will do a table saw setup video when I get it. I compared this one to the ryobi and what really stood out was 2 things it has more power and it also has a dust port. This week I have spent about 5 hours total cleaning up the shop and I made a dust port for my miter saw basically what I did was I put a small piece of wood on the back part of th...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #12: 3-D carving.

1699 days ago by degoose | 16 comments »

This weekend just gone we did a little bit of 3-D carving.I think we were a little adventurous and we were only moderately successful. Did not really have the right cutters but over all I think It came out fair to muddling. I made a blank out of plywood glued up.. 400 mm by 400 mm by 70 odd mm thick, and used a sun face for the template.Spent a lot of the time scarfing out the waste .. would have been better gluing up a pyramid…. you will figure this out from the photos. [ lucky we had ...

Upholstering a kitty condo, and she just had to ask...

1700 days ago by dbhost | 2 comments »

So we are in the process of upholstering the kitty condo project. Wrap after wrap of that obnoxious rough sisal rope goes on,... Somehow about halfway down the main post my lovely bride has the audacity to ask me the one question that nobody should ask at that point when the person doing the work has had his hands rubbed raw by rope… “What if she doesn’t like it?” She asks…. Calmly I look at my wonderful wife, smile and ask her… “You know ...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #2: Secret Compartment Toy Box Continued...

1700 days ago by John M | 1 comment »

First, thanks for all the great comments so far! I’ve only been here for a few hours and I already feel like I found the best place to explore woodworking. : ) So in my planning I figured that I would build a toy box and hide the secret compartment into the frame/trim area in the bottom. I would attach a drawer to one of the sides of the trim which would act as the drawer front. The biggest issue I had with my planning was how to lock the thing. I thought of a few different de...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #1: Secret Compartment Toy Box

1701 days ago by John M | 5 comments »

This project is definitely my most ambitious to date. How complicated can it be right? I’m sure for some of you experts out there, the answer would be “not very”. But for me, this project represents the largest scale project as well as the first that I have had to engineer important aspects entirely on my own. Here’s what I’m doing: I have a nephew who is turning 1 and as a special gift I decided I wanted to make him a “toy” box. I use the...
