An Old Barn #2: Pics of tools found

04-18-2010 06:35 AM by slickytfox | 16 comments »

I had already taken some pictures of some of the tools that I discovered when removing the top layer of the collapsed shed. To preface this, the door to this shed was to open inward but it wouldn’t budge before it collapsed because a ceiling beam had fallen and wedged itself against the door making it impossible to open. I couldn’t get to the hinges and I was always fearful of kicking it in because I had no clue of how it might fall if I did get the door to budge. Through some cra...

An Old Barn #1: Introduction

04-18-2010 12:43 AM by slickytfox | 13 comments »

Hello, I am Tim from PA. I would not call myself an experienced woodworker by any means. I hope that my participation here is not taken in any negative way with regards to your craft. Due to this past winter’s snow storms, I have been presented a situation and I really don’t know where to turn. Through some searches, I arrived at this forum in hopes of receiving advice. On the property that I have been on for not even a year yet, there are several work sheds (or barns as we ...

Drafting Desk #2: Ready for Finish!

04-12-2010 10:12 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

I have finally finished the woodworking part of the drafting desk and am now ready for the finishing. I believe it turning out pretty well. I do have a funny story about putting the top together. I have said before that usually work on larger boards up at my fathers shop in North Carolina. I decided to make the top up there as it would be easier to make and my wife and I were driving up for the weekend from Atlanta anyway. I had all of the boards for the top jointed and the biscuits cu...

Fighting The Evils of Cancer! #1: Preparing the Battle Field

04-12-2010 02:25 AM by Dukegijoe | 3 comments »

Like many of my fellow lumberjocks I worked on the Guild Build from the Wood Whisperer last month. Unfortunately it is still a work in progress (hey, 2 kids under 3 and a wife have a way of monopolizing your free time); but I thought that I would post some of the pictures and progress I made last month, then finish it off when the final steps were done. For those of you that don’t know, the Guild over at Http://www.thewoodwhisperer.com built Shaker tables last month in an effor to su...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

04-09-2010 06:24 AM by sras | 11 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Trying the Stanley No. 8

03-25-2010 05:33 AM by michaelray | 2 comments »

Finally got a chance to use the Stanley No. 8 I posted a blog entry about a few days ago. Gotta say it’s pretty sweet. I’m sure there are others that may be able to tune it to a finer degree, but when I remember the frustration of the first time I ever tried to use a hand plane it feels really good. And what a huge difference sharpening makes!! Today I was using it to even out the glue ups on my new workbench legs. I took a couple of photos to share. From Sawdust From Sawdu...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

03-23-2010 05:07 AM by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...
