Upcoming projects

567 days ago by Pallirondack | 6 comments »

I have discovered a true love of building things, mostly with recovered lumber. The vast majority of my recovered lumber is in the form of recycled wooden pallets. I enjoy the challenge of designing and crafting different pieces, drawing on the available, free plans I can find online, coupled with my own modifications along the way. I am not a pro, finish carpenter so my creations are primarily rustic, outdoor patio/deck style pieces that should last a very long time if the end user takes ...

My First Box Attempt

617 days ago by icemanhank | 9 comments »

Hi there, I have been doing bits,n pieces of woodworking for years now and after recently finding this site was inspired by ‘Don’ to have a go at making a box. I have unashamedly been using one of his boxes as a guide because I love the look of it. I joined my local woodworkers club ‘Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative’ and the guys there have been really helpful and supportive, there is also a really good array of equipment and materials to use at the club. I h...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Working on a countertop

2142 days ago by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...

Cedar Train Table #1: Praticing Dovetails

1722 days ago by Bahremu | 3 comments »

Last year i built a simple train table for my children. It’s functional and they love it. This year my youngest son’s pre-school is soliciting donations for their annual fundraising auction. I will donate a newly made train table. This time more nicely built one. As lots of lumberjocks have built a train table for their children and/or grandchildren, we all know it’s a flat top with an apron that provides a small lip. I’ve decided that this project will be wher...

what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

1280 days ago by Dave | 2 comments »

My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...

Walnut kitchen countertop #5: glue-ups trimmed

158 days ago by harum | 0 comments »

The glue-ups were trimmed a bit to fit the space above the base cabinets. The walls around the cabs don’t meet at right angles though, so the right glue-up had to be cut accordingly. What is left before finishing is sanding with an ROS, grits 100 through 400. I also want to treat the edge with either a 1/8” round over, or a 1/8” bevel bits. Have to try on a scrap piece first to see which works better. Have yet to find one joint connector to bridge the left and r...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1756 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
