Outdoor Furniture #3: Adirondack Chair - Major Progress

802 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

The Adirondack Chair project is really starting to come together. Yesterday, I got all of the straight pieces to make one complete chair cut to size and then I ran out of Douglas Fir lumber. My “Totally Awesome” daughter, Lila (age 10) surprised me by making a sandwich and delivering it to the garage when she thought I could use a break. She even used fresh picked ingredients from my garden on the sandwich! It’s nice to have daughters who like to take care of the O...

Outdoor Furniture #1: First Time Building An Adirondak Chair

804 days ago by Retsof | 0 comments »

My old patio set has seen better days. It was a pretty inexpensive set that I picked up when we lived in Phoenix fourteen years ago, so I guess I got my money’s worth out of it. Anything that last fourteen years in the Phoenix and Las Vegas sun is pretty amazing. :) I looked into the cost of replacing the slings on four chairs and a chaise lounge and I’m not sure it’s worth doing. Since I have the time and the tools, this is the perfect opportunity to take a crack at bu...

Jigsaw table

1280 days ago by devann | 2 comments »

Here’s the smallest table in my shop. I built it because I needed to cut small radius with my jigsaw and didn’t want to be cutting into my workbench. There’s not much to it. Four legs, a 4×4 with some pocket holes at the top to attach a small piece of replaceable plywood to. Besides using for cuttig with the jigsaw, I use it when I want to drill a hole through something and I don’t want a hole in my workbench. It also comes in handy for routing smaller pieces usei...

Jeweler's Bench #1: The Top

1543 days ago by Marc | 3 comments »

My wife and I have been sharing my workbench out in the garage for my woodworking projects as well as her jewelry making projects for a while now but we both decided it was time for her to have her own workbench. We looked around online and found some nice looking jeweler’s benches but of course I said: “I could just build you one of those.”, so here we are. I quickly looked around for some plans but didn’t find any so I just had her pick out the one she liked best and...

After-School Project Art Car #3: About One Hundred Man Hours...

1567 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 1 comment »

...have been thrown in so far. I’ve had about thirty kids place hands on it so far, including to visually-impaired students today. I didn’t expect them so I didn’t prep anything for them to do. After a little scrounging around, I was able to get them to do the sanding/masking work on the rims. Last week saw the finished paintjob. The blue paint took around three coats to cover well, while the yellow pinstripe was created using masking tape and Rustoleum Pro Yellow spr...

Extremely Average #20: Angry Beaver

1651 days ago by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Last evening, as if some mysterious and mischievous deity were looking in on me and saw how giddy I was over my new Festool PSB 300EQ, the power went out. Not just a little outage, one where the deity could chuckle for a few minutes as I sit in the dark with my unusable power tool, but a major ‘the house gets really cold’ outage. I went to bed. It was warm. I thought about using my new saw. At 7:37 am the electricity flowed into the house, bringing with it heat, computing power, a...

Extremely Average #19: My Days as a Ninja

1653 days ago by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

It seemed like a long time ago. The year was 637 AD, and I was studying under the master Ninja and Carpenter, Sado Asuka. His philosophy was, ‘To master the blade of the Ninja, one must master the tools of the Carpenter’. He said this often. We built a Shinto shrine in his back yard and a rumpus room, for his kids. It was strange that he spoke English, but I digress. One day I was using the hand tools, as I was told, practicing my Miyajim-tsugi, or as the master said, in his best Eas...

Big Pine Board #3 Getting to some shaping and cutting

1805 days ago by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Well it took me almost 2 weeks to get the shop reorganized after the delivery of a new table saw and a great set of cabinets I was given from a local school. That ate up most of my time but I’m back on the Big Board project. I got out the circular saw and squared all my edges and was able to arrive at the final overall shape. When the four pieces are assembled and next to each other, it will have this basic design. Extra curves and obviously legs will be coming soon. My next c...

Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

1825 days ago by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

A Parrot IS NOT an Eagle!

1900 days ago by robbinscabin | 9 comments »

As usual, LumberJocks has shown an interest for the photos that we really don’t want to share! So, I reluctantly post this first sad attempt of an Eagle here…NOT in my projects. I do agree with my hubby that Eagle #2 is much better! Oooh, I hate it when he’s right! ;~)
