Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...
Here is a home made lathe without the usual nuts and bolts. A brilliant effortPassed on to LJ’s from my buddy Andy.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG9R0q9QJQc
I started these tables a while ago, while I was recovering from surgery. Most of the time spent so far has been turning the legs. I made the proto- type last year and posted in my projects. The task at hand is dry fitting the mortise and tenon joints all 36 of them. This is going slow but I have one table near completion. I am telling myself to continue the dry fit for the other two tables and wait and glue them when I finish dry fitting the other two tables. I would be interest...

I found this site while perusing a survival site. There is some good ancient information here. Enjoy! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/device/devices2.html
Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos
The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.
In conjunction with a bunch of other guys on another forum, we are putting together a group build of a tube guitar amp. My contribution will be a raw, unfinished, rough sanded cabinet for the amp. We finally got the dimensions nailed down to where I could make a prototype. The project gave me a chance to use my new TS box joint jig (Shop Notes version). I have a bunch of 16’ rough cut pine 1×12’s. So I lopped off 2 lengths long enough to do 1 long side and 1 short side...
Hello Everyone,We finally started to build our much needed hanging tool cabinet. This one is going to be big. It measures in at 4 ft. x 4 ft. and around 20” deep. This build should be a lot of fun. Here is a link to part 1 of the video series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5xU57c6BDw
I’m currently building a work bench and I’m trying to use as many hand tools in the building process as possible. I’ve been planing the legs for the past couple days, and after each leg I feel like I need to down a bottle of water, and I have. My muscles are sore and I’m out of breath. Now I’m 24 years old and in pretty good shape, but this is a hard task. I still have the top to plane as well. So to get to the point of the title. We all know “The Sch...
