Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...
Here I begin work on the next project which is a guitar stand made from Red Oak.
Howdy, I’m going to be working through a new project that is a bit of a stretch for me. I know some of you could do it with your eyes closed so I’ll take any advice you all care to give. I’m going to make a fairly large piece of wall art for my den. The attached image provides a decent idea of my concept. It’s not an inlay pattern. It’s more like a room divider or trellis. Some very kind soul gave away her old levelor blinds. I have lots and lots of sl...
The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...
I am delighted i went into McQuillans in Dublin yesterday and got my first piece of exotic hardwood, i got some zebrano (zebra wood) they were selling loads of pieces of exotic harwood in blanks and in little bocks, its around 2 foot long and around 2 inches square. It was the first proper tradesmen shop i had been in, so it was the first shop i had seen with table saws, power planers, bandsaws etc. it was amazing.
As always the number one tool for any woodworker is the space he or she use’s for his/her wood shop. I have been blessed with a wonderful space to use and wanted to share it with all my LJ friends. This shop was actual started in December of 2011 ( the month I retired from my other career ) and I am now just getting it where it needs to be. The photos taken are after a open house I held at the farm to show off the shop and discuss woodworking with some local craftsmen. N...
Hi everyone! Not too long ago I built a trophy for the fantasy league I manage and it got me interested in learning how to woodwork. I picked up some tools but now I’m at a loss of where to begin. Does anyone have any ideas of what I should start with? I would like to build myself a coffee table eventually but I don’t want to get myself into a project I can’t handle yet. Thanks.
I did a little bit this weekend. I made the drawers for the right side. I will put false fronts on them later. I will post more next week.
Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...
