Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

1572 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...

Getting started.

1583 days ago by Builder_Bob | 3 comments »

I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...

I’ve been poking along with this project, fitting it in with other chores around the house. It seems like as a person gets older, it takes more time to get anything done, but it gradually gets done.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After attaching the side panels, I glued in a piece of foam pad as a silencer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To stretch my plywood, plus protect the ply edges, I glued ...

They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal.

1621 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments »

Okay i’ve been asked to show how my shop vac dust deputy system works so here it is. I have the smaller ridgid shop vac from home depot under my ras inside the cabinet stuffed with insulation enough to dampen the noise but still let the motor cool and exhaust as it should. So fan no problems (-: The hose then goes to the dust deputy on the outside rear to the 5 gallon bucket it comes with, out of the top of the cyclone up towards the saws. I have it hooked into the home depot clea...

1637 days ago by dbhost | 2 comments »

I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple.
