screwdriver #2: replacement

2668 days ago by scottb | 21 comments »

Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that our first generation custom made six-in-one screwdriver did not live up to your screw driving expectations of being able to drive nearly as many screws as the Titanic made Trans-Atlantic voyages. We take our product design and customer service very seriously, and have sacked everyone involved with the first product line. At considerable time and expense we have completely retooled our product line and would like to offer you a replacement fro...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

230 days ago by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

My first Lazy Suzan.

1602 days ago by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

Machinist Toolbox #4: Bad Weather, Kitchen Bender

1318 days ago by PurpLev | 9 comments »

It was pouring outside, and so grey, but somehow the train kept on going. I somewhat planned for this in advance, and made sure I cut all the parts in advance so that I can continue working later on on the joinery in a more flexible manner, and flexible I mean literally as the kitchen counter flexed as I chiseled away. Then again, I was able to get some progress done while being with the family and not isolated in the garage. My daughter sat next to me watching me carve the sockets out with i...

Layered epoxy inlay #9: Problem Fixed Samples Made

921 days ago by JoeyG | 6 comments »

I will start off to day with my samples, this first one is just white glitter and epoxy. It didn’t work out as well as I would have liked. You can see that the coloring is not even. I am pretty sure I mixed it well so I don’t know what caused this, but it’s not something I want in the final project. In the next sample I painted the bottom and sides of my void first, let the paint dry and then filled it with a glitter and epoxy mix. I like the way this one looks and wi...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #4: Joining the sides on the top

601 days ago by Kyle | 3 comments »

I don’t know if it’s a mistake or not to do it this way but, I decided to join the sides together just like I did on the sides themselves. I’m not sure this will create any kind of ultimate weakness or not but, there was enough stock in the legs to do dovetails for both of the rails.....Here’s the first cut. Tail first….......These look pretty good to me........Now to chop out some the housing for the dovetail….......chop chop chop…........Very snug f...

Island #3: Islands are set

1886 days ago by cabinetmaster | 8 comments »

The islands were stained, glazed and lacquered. Then we loaded them both into the truck for delivery. It rained all the way to the job site but quit long enough for us to get them unloaded. It took about 8 guys to get them into the house and set in place. After setting in place I attached 4 corbels, (4 still in shop getting outlets put in them) and installed the 2 spice racks. Karson, you can now see how huge this main kitchen is. The whole room is about 30’ X 30&#...

screwdriver #1: Admit it, fix it, and move on... (now with pix!)

2699 days ago by scottb | 29 comments »

First the bad news, just after my Bro-in law rec’d his homemade 6-in-1 mahogany screwdriver for christmas (and my nephew asked if he was really going to use it) it broke. Apparently the fact that I made it was a miracle, as I misjudged and left the wall closest to the business end very thin. First attempt was only a success in working out all the details in getting it on the lathe, and then off in one piece. Another second and It would have exploded on me. Like any good customer ...
