The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Commisions #13: money box #2

10-23-2008 12:58 AM by teenagewoodworker | 4 comments »

So i finally got some work done today on my box. first i started by making the bottom. because i am using thick material for the sides i wanted to add some rigidness to the box so it is a 1/2” thick poplar bottom and i did the bevel with a hand plane. rather than set up machinery or anything. then it was time to focus on the dividers. these are hard because they are very thin stock and to get them good they have to fit right. so what i did was cut them and did almost what resembl...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

12-21-2009 10:45 PM by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Mortise and Tenons on Curved Pieces

12-01-2013 04:25 PM by socrbent | 0 comments »

Maybe this blog can help some newbies. Experienced woodworkers and those with good training (not me) know that you should cut the mortises and tenons while the stock is still rectangular. Since I didn’t remember this until after cutting some parts for a toy baby cradle to their curved shape, I had to find solutions to problems encountered when cutting some mortises and tenons. The first problem surfaced as I was cutting the tenons on an upper rails for the head board and foot boards....

Front Porch Rockers #4: Completion

05-30-2008 05:09 PM by bhack | 12 comments »

This has been a very satisfying project. First I can do the work, and second I learned a lot new things. Cutting out the arc for the rockers was a new process for me. But, I found that I can do it. I didn’t do them perfect, but they will be the next time because I now have the confidence to do it. Doing new things on each of the power and hand tools now boosts my confidence to try something new and more difficult. So, if you are new to the hobby you can do bigger and better things if yo...

Twins! #5: I've done a lot. With Photos!

03-18-2012 07:21 AM by Andy123 | 8 comments »

Well… Where to start? Well I haven’t posted at all about the crib, because this is the first time I could feel like I could. There was a lot of complications with the pregnancy. My wife had to have enutero surgery on her placenta before the girls were born. And they were born pretty early. The girls are still in the NICU, but doing great! The doctors could not be happier about their progress. Their names are Emma and Lily. On my last blog, I finished the the tenons. Then I mov...

handtool workbench #2: starting some planing

07-02-2013 09:05 PM by Tugboater78 | 7 comments »

Started planing down some of the boards for the top. They will be two ~12” wide sections with an ~ 6” gap/well board between. I am leaning towards having the center section removeable, flipped one way it will be level with the other 2 sections, flipped upside down it will sit lower. All ideas are still not set in stone except the 2 sections. One problem i foresee is my lack of good clamps, wish I had the cash for a couple cabinet masters. I may go run the BigBlueBox card up a ...
