Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #8: Backsplash Inlay and Trimming Top

01-13-2013 08:04 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

With the top built, it was time to turn my attention to the backsplash inlay and wedge detail. ----I cut a double sided taper on the backsplash piece using a tapering jig at the tablesaw. ----I saved my offcuts to make wedge shapes. The wedges were glued back onto the backsplash. I was careful to place the wedge in its original position so the grain would align. ---- The backsplash is carpet taped to a strip of MDF. This creates a straight reference point to cut shallow dados for m...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

My 3 Horses

01-01-2008 10:00 AM by Allison | 2 comments »

I found the pattern to these horses in a stained glass pattern book of which I know longer have so I cannot give credit. If anyone out there in cyberspace knows who did this pattern I would really like to know so that I can give credit. Stain glass patterns are a nice alternative to regular wood patterns and usually quite easier.

Oak Workbench #4: Starting the Base

09-17-2007 02:56 AM by MattD | 2 comments »

In part 4 of this workbench adventure, I’ve added some ash strips to the sides with oak pegs and planed them down flat to the benchtop. The ash is from an old tree I took down in my mother’s back yard and it’s been drying since early spring. It’s the first time I’ve used any of it and it was fun to plane it down and see how it finally turned out.I designed a base within the limits of two 12 foot 2×12s. I looked around a few local yards, but found some fairly...

Oak 6 Panel Door Swap out

03-23-2011 04:45 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 2 comments »

My home was built with white 6 panel hollow core interior doors. I have long hated them. Thus this project was born. I also hate cheap brass lock sets and hinges. (On a side note I hate my builder – no one takes pride in their work anymore) I know that my doors are all Mastercraft. I started by purchasing a Mastercraft 6-panel Oak door. I scrapped the frame, finished the door and hung it. I did this to avoid the need to drill the lock set hole and mortise the hinges. I considered ...
