Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate‚Äôs, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Why buy it when you can make it! #39: Workbench Time [Part 3] - Ready to work

09-12-2015 02:22 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

Last night, after several nights of working on and off on the project, I finally finished my workbench and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still a few loose ends to take care of (adding the shelf for heavier tool storage. I will write more about it in the project post.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1560: Multi-Tasking

05-26-2015 10:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am going to post quickly today (really!) because I have much to do. I have been working on cutting the wood kits that were ordered for my haunted carousel and I spent much of the day doing that. I was happy with how things went. I did everything in a nice, organized way and it made things pleasant and I got lots done in not too much time. Yesterday was cutting all the large circular parts for the carousel. Any scroller can tell you that cutting circles can be a challenge. You would thi...

Why buy it when you can make it! #33: Workbench Time [Part 1]

05-17-2015 07:50 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

For a while, I had been working on saw horses with a melamine coated piece of MDF I picked up from the Ikea as-is section. After abusing that thing for 2 years, I figured it was time to embark on a build. My goal for the workbench was to make it as inexpensive as possible. I first thought of going the 2×12 douglas fir route, but opted to liquidate my stash of MDF. The MDF was laminated with Titebond and wood screws across 2 sessions. After finishing the lamination, I double sticke...

MDF and Drawer Slides #1: What screw type or method is best to fasten slides to MDF core plywood carcase?

04-08-2015 04:30 PM by HappyHowie | 20 comments »

I recently changed my mind about hand fitting these drawers to the dresser I am making. I decided in order to quickly finish this project that I would use side mounted drawer slides. The dresser is primarily MDF core maple plywood with maple hardwood trim on its edges. I followed the plan I purchased for joining the panels with biscuits. Originally I was going to follow the plan to hand fit the drawers by precisely fitting the drawer parts by using bench planes. Recently I decided to u...

Sandpaper Storage Rack

02-17-2015 05:13 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! My solution to storing my sandpaper was not ideal. As you can see in the pictures, the paper has curled from the previous storage method. I make a simple tray style rack to store each grit of paper separately. Materials: MDF, Hardboard, Glue, Label Maker Construction Methods: Rabbits, and grooves, glue. I filmed the build on my YouT...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1488: "Art Play Date" 2015 Launched!

02-01-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, it seemed like January just flew by! What has started out to be a mild winter has turned into a lot of snow, wind and sleet. I think that yesterday we had the biggest snowfall yet for this year, and they are predicting 30-40 more cm of snow tomorrow.  Winter is definitely here.I think the month went by quickly for me because I had so much to do. My work schedule was even what I would consider heavy – and it takes a lot for that to be the case. I had several deadlines to get m...
