Drawer Organization

01-12-2019 02:21 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I recently finished some drawer organization work using 1/2” maple. I wanted to divide up the space in the cutlery drawer in our newly remodelled kitchen. I figured out a way to put the organizer in without having to put holes in the drawer from nails or screws. I documented this in a video if you’re interested. https://youtu.be/0h-65TXkX8I

Handmade wooden kazoos!

01-07-2019 01:16 AM by TomGrin | 4 comments »

I start with a blank ¾” x ¾” x 5”. I made a little jig to drill them in the drill press. I use a 5/16” brad point bit. It’s not long enough to drill all the way through, so I have to flip them. I switch to a forsner bit and drill the hole in the body. I drill it about 1 ¾” from one end. I cut the top piece on the bandsaw with the aid of a fence. I cut them ¼” thick and 2” long and ¾” wide to match the body of the kazoo. I sand the top pieces on some sticky backed sandpap...

Shop stuff #143: A table for the TV

12-22-2018 03:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

My neighbour asked me if I could build a table for her TV to sit on. Originally, she wanted it painted, I talked her out of that after I milled up the stock for the legs. A lot of work using re claimed and left over wood but it turned out pretty decent in the end. I made this one a longer format as the holidays are upon us and I thought something to settle in and watch would be the way to go. This may depend on how well you get along with the rest of the family and how much alcohol is con...

Segmented Pyrography Design #1: Overview of a segmented pyrography project.

12-16-2018 01:41 AM by Julian | 11 comments »

I found a crochet pattern that I thought would make an interesting pattern on a turning. First step is to make the rings. 12 segments per ring made with soft maple. Soft maple is very white compared to most other woods and will contrast nicely with the burned pattern lines. The turning will be made in two halves which makes it much easier to shape the inside. After the two halves are glued together I finish shaping the outside and the top. Now it is time to transfer the design o...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Shop stuff #141: Roubo bench build part 9

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

WWII Jeep #3: Model Build #3 : WWII Jeep w/ Trailer plus M-3 Antitank Gun 37mm UPDATE!

11-05-2018 01:29 AM by Jason1974 | 30 comments »

I did a little more this weekend. Actually I did a lot. Don’t pay attention to the wheels. They are the next thing I’m going to work on, then the 50 cal. By the way, what should I put on the wood? I have Tung oil, Danish oil and linseed oil. I can’t decide.
