Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 4 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...

Some past projects, #1: Benches

04-29-2015 02:14 AM by Silverhill | 4 comments »

I just decided to take up wood working a little over a year ago due to health reasons. I could not continue with my past hobbies, so I decided to take up WW late in life. I know that I will never get the years of experience needed to accomplish what others do, but if I am having fun, so what? Fun is fun, at whatever level one is at. I work exclusively with pine or fir due to low cost and easy availability. I even use pocket hole screws, and pin nailers! My first project was a basic 5...

Jigs #1: The Super-Awesome-Tuberculosis Curing Crosscut Sled

07-13-2015 04:58 AM by JeffMartineau | 7 comments »

Oh my! You guys have no idea how happy I am right now. It took about two weeks, a digital angle finder, a dial indicator, a new Biesemeyer fence, table saw extensions, and a lot of sweat, but this crosscut sled is done! Well, almost. Still have to build accessories, paint it, and make it look all pretty and whatnot, but at the very least, I can use it to cut, or more exactly to crosscut. You are probably wondering how on earth can a simple sled make a guy this kuckoo right? It is by no mea...

Commisions #12: money box #1

10-18-2008 03:13 AM by teenagewoodworker | 11 comments »

hey everyone, just got a commission from the club that i am in for school to build a money box for when we have bake sales and other various sales.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #27: Pipe Clamps!

09-19-2014 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

Our second winter of the year is definitely here, just as warm, but plenty of storms! So the Kiosk roof is on hold now, probably until November, when we are back to summer again. In the mean time, all woodwork came to a halt a little over a week ago, with the arrival of a new family member, a four legged one, we wanted a companion for our schnauzer, so took on a rescue dog, that had been abused, the first three days we thought it was the biggest mistake we had made, he is only a small coll...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #28: Carport

10-14-2014 12:41 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I recently decided that I would retire gracefully from motorcycling, I bought a new bike in March and have only done 500km due in part to the weather, and probably more importantly due to the horrendous standard of driving in Colombia, there isn’t a day when I am out in the car that I don’t pass at least two accidents involving motorcycles. So the bike is being sold, and I have purchased a 1982 Suzuki SJ, which I am more than happy with, but it came with it’s own problem...
