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...
Ron sanding the frame. Bill jumped in to help sand the frame.The frame has 1/2” round over inside and out except for where the axles go.More sanding.And… more sanding.And… more sanding. I hate sanding. A dry fit to see how it all looks together.We already sent the wheels to the painters shop.Wish we had the wheels here.The axles have a 1/16” gap all the way around the support to allow for expansion and contraction.It’s late Saturday night and there in one more ...
Just completed my Maple picture frame (posted in projects) and I sure learned a lot from it! The finishing really gave me a hard time, I think it turned out fairly well but would have liked it a little smoother. On to my next project – a Mission style couch table.

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...

The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...
Over the past several weeks I’ve been looking for ways to maximize the space in my small shop and get more utility out of the items that dwell there. For the last few years my workbench has been a crude, stationary one that is built into the wall. One of the first things I built, it’s too tall, too narrow and only three sides can be used. I decided to tear out this bench and build a replacement. So the first phase was trying to make a list of all the things I needed this ben...
