Great Deal On Wood

10-03-2009 12:36 AM by Innovator | 13 comments »

I went to Home Depot today for a few things for a Honey Do project. While I was there I was in the lumber aisle and there was a truck of wood piled up (more like thrown on) with orange paint on the ends. I asked an associate how much is each piece and he said they only sell it by the skid (some HD will sell it by the piece). Ok so I asked “How much for the skid”, he said $1.01 per piece. Ok so I am interested how much for the skid then. He went over to it and bent down and started to cou...

My Hidden Treasure Find

10-02-2009 02:44 AM by makingitmine | 4 comments »

I bought an Old oldold dresser/chest for $300.We sanded and discovered after research and tons of comparisons that I have an old chest or drawers made of “wormy” chestnut! Which I believe to be unique from what i have researched. The dresser is not made with screws, nails and or any modern methods of “nailing”. It is old fashioned tongue and grove, wooden “nails” or pegs and very old skeleten key locks for each drawer. It also has a “hidden”...

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...

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

09-23-2009 02:57 AM 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

09-21-2009 09:29 PM 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!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM 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

09-15-2009 04:22 PM 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...
