I debated where to put this, then decided to stick with my Blog! I had a makeshift lumber rack made out of an old prison bunk-bed frame, it did it’s job, but it took up too much space, then last week I watched Jay Bates from Jays Custom Creations, construct a simple lumber rack made from 2×4s and metal conduit on YouTube, and that spurred me on to build a new rack. I hitched up the trailer and went off to Homecenter, bought a stack of 2×4s and some other timber for othe...
In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.
This is part 1 of my shop tour. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
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. Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...
I started thinking about building a new wood shop back in early February.

I thought to myself this is it. I can’t keep going on like this. I MUST BUILD A PROPER WOOD SHOP!!! And so the planning began. I read books on fra...

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.
