Right up to the finish. We do have a store front we sell out of als...
Ok – so as most of you know I have picked up the woodworking bug, and a big thanks to a special someone – I have recently grown with power tools! I love the tools and the more I get the more I woodwork… it has become a nightly thing that I enjoy. Until last night! So here is how the night went:I left work around 8… Stop at the local Home Depot – needed glue, and something to clean the stainer off my favorite paint brush – any suggestions? I almost bou...
I gave up on finishing this checkerboard project in time for Christmas, and then I was out of commission with a bad chest cold for another three weeks. Once I was back to 100%, I got to work finishing my White Oak Bookcase project. Now it’s time I got this one back on track. The last thing I had done on this project was to glue up all the squares for the top. I did half of the board at a time and then used my biscuit joiner to join the two sections together. I put in some time ...
It has taken me about 8 months but I finally have my Workshop setup with all the large machines I need, or wanted! The best part is I was able to pull it off while putting some extra cash in my pocket. You see this past November I thought I had everything necessary for the projects I wanted to do. It was pretty simple I wanted to make some small projects like cutting baords and some bigger projects like a Sofa Table or Greene & Greene Blanket Chest. What I quickly found out was my Shop...
Here’s one of a gentleman that wanted one of his youth to give to his Mother. He has a lot of feeling for her.
Well, went out and collected 7 pallets for my next project. As you all know, I like to re-purpose wood to do my projects. This one should be interesting as it’s a Dry Sink and will be done entirely with old wood pallets. I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with what I’m doing here. http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5487.jpghttp://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5488.jpg There are the links to the pics!
Have you ever walked away from your Workshop after a project without doing the proper cleanup? Here’s why that’s a really bad idea! We had spent so much time building the log bed that we just didn’t bother to clean up. And after nearly a week of avoiding the basement entirely I was starting to feel pretty guilty…one day I even took my project out to the front yard to “work in the sunshine.” In reality I was avoiding the mess! But I wasn’t the o...
My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...
I started by using 1/2” birch veneer ply to build the sides. I cut three 1/2” dados along each side 1/4” deep for the shelves and base and the cut the shelves to measure and glued the all in place. The top I lapped over 1/2” on each side and 1” to the front to accommodate the door and drawer fronts.
