Crown Molding #1: New project, new skills, new toys

1540 days ago by Todd Clare | 6 comments »

We painted the bedroom recently and decided to put up crown molding. Our house is 100 years old, and the Home Depot stuff just wasn’t getting us excited. We finally found a place here in Denver that specializes in old style moldings, since they’ve been in business since the moldings were originally created. Turns out we liked one of their in-stock moldings, so I’ve got 56 lineal feet of it ready to be put up. You can also see the cutting jig I made with the very expl...

Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

1547 days ago by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of IpĂ© from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

Medicine Cabinet Part ?? #1: Not quite chronological process

1562 days ago by Blinky | 0 comments »

I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...

Chicken Coop #1: Gathering tools and supplies

1563 days ago by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

The 7×8 lean-to shed is going to be delivered tonight. This is a simple but sturdy Amish built shed with a roof that is about 6’ at one side and 5’ at the other. We plan on having between 10 and 15 chickens to free range and rid our yard of ticks, since my husband has been afflicted with lyme disease. The structure does not have any windows or ventilation, nor any “chicken-furniture”, so I’ll have to modify it. This is my first big remodeling/woodworki...

Miter Saw Assistance Requested

1565 days ago by wichle | 8 comments »

My shop is such that I do not have a wall behind the miter saw. There is a dust port on the saw that catches some of the saw dust. That is connectd to my dust collection system. However! This saw generates a good deal of random dust. I have tried placing a plastic scoop on a stand, (available from Woodcraft.) also connected to the dust collection system behind the saw. While it catches some additional dust, the saw still spews alot of random dust. I’d appreciate any ideas to cat...

What do you do with the projects your wife hates ?

1572 days ago by mkrok | 10 comments »

Slap some french cleats on it, hang it on the wall, and HOLA !!! Instant miter saw workstation. These were supposed to be storage cubbies for the kids toys with an integrated desktop spanning the 2 cabinets. I went overboard on the design, my wife simpy wanted boxes. Oh well ….. All 1/2’ big box birch plywood. No finish yet. I put it to work immediatly. Plenty of storage for hand power tools and stuff. Always have a backup plan. Enjoy… http://i955.photobucke...
