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

1800 days ago 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...

French cleat garage storage system #1: Starting my largest storage project ever

1804 days ago by jeffreythree | 4 comments »

I decided the other day that those nifty french cleats would look real cool on my garage wall for modular, adjustable storage. My wife has a hard time dodging my tools, I can’t help bringing home new ones, and I cannot get to some to use them without 15 minutes of rearranging. The 20’ long wall I picked was relatively barren other than some yard tool holders and an extension cord holder. It is about 9’ to the ceiling and I have chosen to space the 3” cleats with 3-...

Woodworking from tree to home #2: Shipshape shop

1806 days ago by jeffreythree | 1 comment »

Well, bringing home a load of lumber made me realize that I need some organization for everything that has to fit in it. It is a 2 car garage that needs to fit my wife’s van, about 750 bdft of wood now, workbench, and all the tools(TS, BS, jointer, planer, sander, and all my handtools). It will be similar to this: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21309 but bigger. I started it by using a lot of random S4S oak off of a criagslist buy to build a french cleat system on one 20’ long...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

1810 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

LAMP TABLE #1: LAMP TABLE - THE MORTISES

1812 days ago by aaronmolloy | 1 comment »

!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

1813 days ago by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #6: The Hard Part

1818 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

So, today I ran over to Plywood & Lumber Sales in Oakland, CA and purchased about 100 board feet of quartersawn white oak. I finally have enough lumber to do the dining table. I’m going to start with the top and get that finished so I can bring it into the dining room and set it on top of my old table. This will get rid of the MDF table top we’ve been using for months. It’ll also let me use the MDF for more important things like jigs. I also abhor the tablecloth we&...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #7: Fumearama

1819 days ago by CaptainSkully | 9 comments »

After letting the glue cure overnight, I took it out of the clamps and gave it a final hand sanding. Not too bad, but could be better. I think next time I’ll err on making the legs touch on the outside corners instead of a flat meeting. This caused some gappage that I filled with putty. Since our dog laid down by the tent, I figured it was time to fume. There’s no better time than the present. I carefully put the tent over the table and then propped them both up en...

Oak Finish King Size Wood Frame

1822 days ago by dave59330 | 10 comments »

My first project on here is to build this bed frame: I’ve asked a couple questions iin a forum and I got great response. I got it in my mind how to do everything on this project but the radius edges. This bed frame is going for $1499 on ebay, for $1499, I can buy all the tools and lumbar and stain and mess up about a dozen times for $1500 so I’m taking this on as a challenge for me. I’ve build bed frames before, nothing like this though. When my wife was goi...
