Pie Safe #6: The light at the end of the tunnel.

02-03-2013 07:30 PM by scamp238 | 7 comments »

Well, she is almost finished. The back is on and there are just minor details left. I was pleased with how the back turned out. I was wanting it to contrast with the rest. My daughter didn’t really want this, but once it was on, she really liked it. Thanks for looking everyone. The next time I post on this, it will be a finished project.

Design #1: Using Google Sketchup.

01-28-2013 03:55 PM by PASs | 1 comment »

I have used Google SketchUp (free version) for the last few years and have found it to be excellent for designing projects like this. All my crates are designed and costed based on these types of drawings.For this project I tried something new in the design…I added the bolts I will use to put it all together. The picture of the bolts was done by hiding the rest of the crate…it took about 5 seconds to hide the other components. The finished crate will be 11 feet high, 11 feet dee...

Pie Safe #4: More Progress

01-26-2013 04:09 PM by scamp238 | 0 comments »

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...

Checkerboard Project #6: Back On Track

01-25-2013 06:49 AM by Retsof | 4 comments »

I gave up on finishing this checkerboard project in time for Christmas, and then I was out of commission with a bad chest cold for another three weeks. Once I was back to 100%, I got to work finishing my White Oak Bookcase project. Now it’s time I got this one back on track. The last thing I had done on this project was to glue up all the squares for the top. I did half of the board at a time and then used my biscuit joiner to join the two sections together. I put in some time ...

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

01-17-2013 02:59 PM by OregonBurls | 32 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

Living Room Display Shelves #1: "The old cliche about the devil"

01-14-2013 04:24 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

The devil is in the details. That’s especially true for an impatient lout like me. When it’s close to being done, I want it done now! I decided to work backwards. My shelves are going to be surrounded by the same style of trim I made for my home. I decided to use a little facetted rossette pattern in the major areas. I’ll let you see for yourself a little further down. I started with solid cherry flooring – $1.00 a foot. I had to strip the finish with a belt sand...

Get Glue off Whiteside Router Bit

01-13-2013 05:28 PM by rockinmichael | 3 comments »

My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

Dear Festool.....

01-08-2013 05:38 PM by NoLongerHere | 22 comments »

Dear Festool, I love to buy tools at Christmas. Every year, I try to upgrade a few power tools and then hand down the old tools, if they’re still in good shape to a young deserving apprentice. When I go to Woodcraft, I always stop and look at your Kapex sliding miter saw display model. I check out the way it slides, the nice color scheme, the dust collection system, the stand and then, the price tag….. sigh. ”......Maybe next Christmas.” , I always thought....

Flip Top Miter Saw / Planer Stand #1: Design Concept

01-06-2013 10:16 AM by Stace | 3 comments »

I’ve been a woodworker for 25 years, but I’ve never written about my experiences. Like many of you, I too tired of always digging out my miter saw, lifting it up on my Black & Decker Workmate, using it, only to put it back down on the ground so I could use the work surface for something else. I decided to make a stand for the miter saw, and started browsing a number of articles in either Woodsmith, Popular Woodworking or Woodworkers Journal. There were lots of ideas, but it...

Upcoming projects

12-23-2012 05:46 PM by Pallirondack | 6 comments »

I have discovered a true love of building things, mostly with recovered lumber. The vast majority of my recovered lumber is in the form of recycled wooden pallets. I enjoy the challenge of designing and crafting different pieces, drawing on the available, free plans I can find online, coupled with my own modifications along the way. I am not a pro, finish carpenter so my creations are primarily rustic, outdoor patio/deck style pieces that should last a very long time if the end user takes ...
