Zagrebs HUGE flea market.

03-21-2012 12:09 PM by gavinzagreb | 10 comments »

Zagreb has a huge flea market in the wastelands on the edge of town out by the garbage mountain !I love flea markets, and this one is one of the best. There is all sorts of new products, from clothes to tools and everything in between, along with a second hand car market plus a massive section of second hand goods. Literally everything can be found there. I get most of my router bits there (new) and I like to get old hand tools there also. There’s also many BBQ type food and drink estab...

New Carving Vise or Workholder - Made From Junk

12-29-2010 10:18 PM by helluvawreck | 14 comments »

I haven’t carved anything for a couple of years other than a little whittling while I was up in the mountains last month. I’ve carved in fits and spurts for a good many years but only a week or so at each time. I’ve never been able to stick with it because of time constraints so I’ve never become very good at it but I sure would like to stick with it this time since I’ve got a little more time, now. I would really like to get good enough to decorate some of my f...

Did I Ever Tell You Folks That I'm a Junk-a-holic?

10-28-2010 04:28 PM by helluvawreck | 47 comments »

Folks, I’m a junk-a-holic. I don’t know how to put it any other way than that. Here are some pictures of some of my junk. Most of it is electro-mechanical stuff, power-transmission stuff, machine parts, old machines, and hardware. The last two pictures are the two ways you can get to my office. If you ever do drop by please don’t ever get lost because you may never find your way back out. We call this the Dungeon. :-[ ...

Baby Furniture #9: One Man's Junk contest question

07-28-2008 07:07 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

If I don’t get a lot done in the next couple evenings, this will be a mute point I know. But, I was wondering if you guys would consider my crib able to be entered in the contest. I’ve never entered anything yet and thought it’d be a neat side note to the crib story. The lumber is all from my wife’s uncle. Him and his father milled it 20 plus years ago. We helped him haul a bunch of good quality lumber out of a place he rented to his farm. After that was finished, h...

One Man's Junk - Chair #11: Final Entry

07-27-2008 10:47 PM by Zuki | 5 comments »

Im getting close to the final product. Here I am flush cutting the plugs. They are still a little proud, but sanding will take care of that. I decided to spare you by not including pictures of me sanding. I just have one word – dusty. Here it the base that will be attached to the chair. I had a piece of spruce that was kicking around the shop for some time. This was the perfect opportunity to put it to use as the “adaptor plate” for the base and chair. It was a little ...

One Man's Junk - Chair #10: Plugging along

07-23-2008 12:49 AM by Zuki | 4 comments »

I was late getting home this evening so my time was limited in the shop. My main task was to plug all the holes where I used screws . . . not the pocket screws as they are all hidden. I popped the fence on the BS and lined everything up. This is the first time I used the fence . . . its 4” high and came standard with the saw. I like it. After I ran the plugs through I was left with this. Instead of using any type of wood glue to hold the plugs I use a secret formula . . . ...

One Man's Junk - Chair #9: The end is in sight

07-20-2008 08:34 PM by Zuki | 6 comments »

I have not been out of the shop for a couple of days and I had a little mishap on Friday while staining the deck. 99.9% of the time when I am outdoors I am wearing coveralls . . . what I wear underneath is determined by other factors. :-) On Friday I said to myself “self, why not get some sun on your white skin and vitamin D into your system” . . . “I said sure, why not.” For the 2 hours outside in the sunshine I wore a pair of trunks. Well . . . my entire back, one thigh and both forearm...

One Man's Junk - Chair #8: Moving right along

07-17-2008 01:04 AM by Zuki | 8 comments »

This is where I started tonight – I attached the back to the seat of the chair. This is what it looks like when everything underneath is attached – front, back and side stretchers. Next on the list is the arms. I placed them up against the chair to see what it will look like. I then cut the end of both arms to match with the uprights. The next step is to remove the area that I have marked in red. The area to be removed would taper into the front curve. I’m debat...

One Man's Junk - Chair #7: Lean on me

07-15-2008 01:10 AM by Zuki | 7 comments »

Not much happened in the shop this evening. I decided to attach the Back Stretchers. Firstly I had to do some marking on the inside of the Back Posts so I would get a good idea on where to drill the recessed holes for the screws. I drilled pilot holes from the inside out and used those holes to guide the bit for the recessed screws. Here I am at the DP. I actually managed to take this picture myself using the timer function. Yea . . . I know . . . all cameras have timers, however ...

One Man's Junk - Chair #6: Looking like a chair?

07-14-2008 01:27 AM by Zuki | 4 comments »

I find it quite neat with woodworking that after hours toiling with chunks of wood, crafting them into miscellaneous shaped pieces that they all fir together (relatively well we hope) to resemble a final product. Today I worked on the Front Rail, Back Rail, Back Posts, Back Stretchers and seat. I first went upstairs to take some measurements off the model. I then made the Front Rail and Back Rail (which I attached to the Back Posts). I then proceeded to notch the back to the seat ...
