Now, how strange it is to be all alone in your workshop, nobody around, just you, your tools and your video camera and still being nervous. Knowing that you are going to share that video with the world makes you feel watched and although you can do it over and over again until you got it right, still your feeling embarrassed while making mistakes. Maybe that insecurity will become less overtime…. I didn’t withhold me from making the second video on the 4 year long journey of re...
I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...
I found this site while perusing a survival site. There is some good ancient information here. Enjoy! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/device/devices2.html
Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...
Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view. This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :) This is t...
and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...
I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...
I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...
