Tool thoughts #31: Happy Birthday - the report

08-15-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 11 comments »

Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...

Shop storage projects #21: Need a dresser for chisels, starting up

02-13-2017 03:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Main dresser is done, and almost loaded up. A drawer I had found on the curb during Trash Day provides the start for the next little project. I had that old box of chisels, that needed a better place to hang out in.. This is the drawer I found. I separated the chisels into two groups. The Plastic handle crowd was laid out in the drawer, and some scrap pine was added as dividers.. I’ll finish nailing the dividers in place later. There is a place to stash a small chest of...

Cherry end table

10-19-2013 08:05 PM by SFDCapt | 1 comment »

I had made a small cherry/birdseye maple box for my wife’s Aunt a few months back and have been banging my head against the wall trying to come up with an idea for my wife’s father. A little background on the project’s motivation, the wood was found in a barn on the family farm that we purchased four years ago. My wife’s Great-grandfather used to make furniture on the property in a shop that is now well beyond salvageable. He stored his rough cut lumber supply in ano...

Not always wood #1: PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking.

06-13-2015 11:38 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...

End Table project #3: Frame and panel work

07-26-2015 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

Shop Doings #1: How many clamps?

02-27-2012 12:46 AM by SalvageCraft | 20 comments »

I started on a small project tonight. I guess I got a little carried away with the clamps. Somewhere after the first ten, I just got curious to see how many more would fit. The really disturbing part is, I’ve forgotten what I was even making, and I can’t see through the tangle of clamps well enough to make any guesses! So, off to hang out on LJs…

First dovetail ever!

03-09-2012 07:34 PM by Uffe | 13 comments »

Took a woodworking class last fall (for the first time since I was in high school). That was A LOT of fun – I should have done it long ago. I made this simple shelf (not finished in the picture) using a dovetail joint for the top shelf and a dadoed joint for the shelf underneath. (The lower shelf is not seen in the picture, the only thing you can see are the plugs for the screws, not yet trimmed flush.) This is my first ever dovetail joint, but I have to admit I had to practice thre...

Craftsman built-ins #1: Window seat - stereo cabinet #1

11-24-2012 09:40 PM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

Four years after major home renovation work, I’ve decided to tackle the living room space in our 1943 ranch. The house has an interesting feature…the interior walls were not studded/plastered; instead, the exterior brick was simply stuccoed on the interior…which makes for awkward built-in attachment. My larger goal is to work my way around the room installing built-ins in a craftsman like style. The individual projects I’ll address in this blog will include: 1. ...
