Today i went back out to the workshop, which was so cold the joys of autum, after i had taken the masking tape off i cleaned the glue off and sanded the outside of the box then cut and glued a piece of leather for the inside of the base then cut some mapple slip for the tray to sit on and glued it on.while that was setting i made the tray which is made the same way as the box only on a smaller scale, then went about making a lid which is quite simple in design just a rebate to inset it intoth...

Candle box

11-10-2009 04:46 AM by epp_dog | 8 comments »

When my father gave me his woodshop there were several of these candle boxes that he had started for my mother. This year I decided to finish one of them for my mom for Christmas. Dad had made the box and drawers. The drawer fronts and lid were all I need to finish. For the lid, I am planning no resawing a solid wood panel to 3/8 inch. To help it keep from bowing, I will install some braces (screws only – no glue) to the underside of the lid. At least that is the plan as of today.!

Here's What Has Invaded My Shop #1: Start of Cabinet Construction

11-08-2009 05:56 AM by Scott Bryan | 20 comments »

My shop has been invaded!!! Mike Gager posted a blog about an invasion of brown recluse spiders in his shop. I have another “invasion” of sorts that has occurred in my shop. Most of us tend to be somewhat solitary woodworkers and work alone in our shop. This has always been my situation as well. However last week this is what was going on in my shop: This is my son Jonathan using a jointer for the first time. Jon and his wife “commissioned” me to build...

Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

Barrel Wine Rack #1: The Sides...

10-27-2009 02:27 AM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

It’s been at least a day since I started a new project/blog. My buddy Eric always says that projects are meant to be started, not necessarily finished. We go wine tasting in this rather industrial winery in Alameda, CA (we’re actually members). In their wine tasting loft is a very cute wine rack made out of wine staves. I’m at least as interested in their rack as their wine (far be it from me to pass up a nice rack). While waiting for other stuff to dry (that always...

Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #1: One for You, One for Me...

10-24-2009 06:56 PM by CaptainSkully | 8 comments »

I figured it was time to start another new blog. We’ve got friends that are getting married, and we wanted to give them something special. I figure the best gift you can give is one you want for yourself, so I’m going to make two while I’m at it. We originally thought about a mirror, but realized shipping it would be problematic. Then I thought about the clock project that had been bouncing around in the back of my head. After my usual extensive research, this is the de...
