Go home shelf you're drunk (twisted corner shelf)

05-02-2017 02:58 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

A couple years ago I saw a corner shelf that was a conceptual computer design on Pinterest. I thought it was really cool so I searched the internet for a real-life version, couldn’t find it. so I made one, and it was awesome, not even that difficult. And recently, ive been thinking of how I could make it more practical (A.K.A. bigger shelves) so here is my 2.0 model. Id say it looks just as good if not better than the original. If you would like to see the shelf, and its predecess...

I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year. View on YouTube

Venues #1: Gallery Calapooia Installation

04-23-2017 10:49 PM by Jerry | 20 comments »

I was recently invited to join Gallery Calapooia in Albany, OR. Today I put my work in the Gallery. About a week ago when I first got admitted, a reporter from the local press, the Mid-Valley media group, came out and shot a bunch of video of me working in the shop and did an interview. Then a reporter from another local paper came out and did an interview and took a bunch of pictures. At the end of May Albany holds its’ annual “Wine Walk”, my work will be in the front...

Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube

Projects with Red Oak Flooring leftovers #1: Looking for project ideas

04-07-2017 07:46 PM by Lalen | 8 comments »

I just ended up with about 30+ square feet of brand new leftover red oak hardwood floor material. It is about 3/4” thick, 3.25” wide and in random lengths. It has tongue and groove milled in the sides and the ends. The bottom side has some channels in it, so I’ll have to mill about 1/16th off to make it flat and parallel. (good thing i just got a planer!) Looking for project ideas that will make good use of this! Please comment with thoughts or links! I will keep...
