Outfitting the workshop #5: One of the inestimable pleasures of being a Lumberjock...making your own tools!
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 ...
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...
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...
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”...
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...
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
