My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

Church Clock Project #1: Build The Inside First

02-19-2011 05:15 AM by William | 4 comments »

Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...

Outfitting the workshop #5: One of the inestimable pleasures of being a Lumberjock...making your own tools!

02-13-2011 07:42 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Well there are probably a lot of other things I should have covered in the outfitting of my shop before I posted this, but I’d probably never manage to post anything if I did it in chronological order :-) Any way I am working on a two step red oak step stool for my shop (I am hoping that Jenn sees it and determines the ugly metal one in the kitchen belongs in the shop and that this ‘ugly’ piece of shop furniture belongs in the house LOL!). The construction requires some ...

Daily Progress. #7: Back to Recording Progress.

02-10-2011 08:31 AM by GregP | 3 comments »

My last couple projects I got a little bogged down and didn’t get to recording them, so this is kind of jumping back on the horse as far as keeping track. Anyway, the project I’m working on right now is one I’ve done before. I’m making a replica of this one that I did about a year ago; Here’s my progress on it for today; The top half glued up, still have to glue those two slabs together and cut. The face frame cut to width and length, on a...

Just for Fun... #44: The Experiment Works!!

02-10-2011 04:19 AM by littlecope | 12 comments »

This experimental box that I’ve been trying out sat idle all weekend, what with work and all…This morning, I put on the top course and then fashioned the lid…This box is a little different, at least to me… Usually, I spend a lot of time making the sides of a box fit right together… and then there’s a separate “assembly phase”...Here, it was all assembly and when the walls were up, it’s DONE… almost…The walls were built, but not...

Lauren's Bed #2: Drawer Slides and Doors

02-09-2011 05:48 AM by Jesse Schutt | 3 comments »

Like many of you, I ended up catching a case of the winter flu last week. So that forced me to spend my “day off” in bed recovering. But that is past me now and I was able to spend a little time in the shop and work on my daughter’s bed. There really isn’t anything incredibly unique here, but I wanted to share some of the photos of the progress. I found some drawer slides on Amazon for reasonably cheap. I ended up paying around $75 for ten sets of 18”...

Traffic Light Project #2: Finally some progress....

02-09-2011 02:31 AM by souichiro | 1 comment »

Today marked two days in a row of progress on my light project. This, after over a week of beating my head on the bench with the electronics on the lighting. But….. finally I have the basic light circuit wired and working, and tested with the actual lights that will be mounted in when it’s complete. Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...
