I got the chair almost ready for refinishing, I just need to sand with 180 grit paper. I hate to put more stain, on the chair since I strip the old stuff. :)

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

1217 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers

Lumber Scores! #2: Massive oak posts and planks from the Coney Island Boardwalk! (Wood gloat!)

874 days ago by SalvageCraft | 15 comments »

Wow. It’s been an eventful day! I visited a friend who works out at Pioneer Millworks (PioneerMillworks.com) this afternoon, and hauled in quite a load! Pioneer specializes in reclaimed wood flooring, but also provides timber framing and millwork services. They receive massive beams from old barns, factories, and other structures as well as flooring planks, massive joists, and plank siding from all over the northeast. It was mind boggling to see their outdoor lumber yard plump with...

Rockin' Ride #4: Assembly Process

2017 days ago by kshipp | 0 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I used the Kreg screw system for most of the joinery on this project. This is my second major project (first one here) using this system and I have found them to be very strong. It’s also very quick to join pieces with this system which helped me do this project in only 4 days exclusive of some of the finishing. This was also my first time using the Kreg plugs which I’ve started a forum topic on here. I always get to the end of the build an...

My "Bucket List" #2: Part Two: Segment One- My pie crust table

1230 days ago by therookie | 2 comments »

Well what put this on my list of projects is Garyk and his blog about his interpretation of the classic chippendale pie crust table. Well reading on how he built his and what I would need to do, I decided to put a spin into the classic design and make it a really unique table. Well when I was doing research on how the classics were built they were out of mahogony or walnut traditionally. I did not have any on hand so I used what I had and that was Quater Sawn White Oak. Now according to diffe...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #1: She's got legs.....

851 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 7 comments »

I’ll skip the boring parts, like the glue up of the legs and material choice. I will say that I had intended to build my own designed bench sometime last year. I was sold on a certain author’s idea of an awesome Roubo style bench. I got Paul Sellers’ Working Wood, book and dvd set at Christmas this year, and it completely changed my way of thinking. But you didn’t come here for ramblings, you want to see pictures…... There they are, pretty aren&#...

Simple Wall shelf with hooks.

453 days ago by cpine | 4 comments »

I have been woodworking for some time and never really made videos of my work. I also enjoy geocaching and started making videos to share with that hobby. It has been so much fun. Seeing such talented folks sharing their videos I said why not? This is a very simple video but would love to share it with you all. Thanks! Chris http://youtu.be/JaRgavIMwtI

2273 days ago by Woodshopfreak | 9 comments »

Well after about four months I finely get a chance to make use of my shop. I have begun to work on my jewelry box once again. I started in january and got distracted by the huge shop renovation.

I fist took a peice of poplar and milled it flat and then used two peices of 1/4 ply to work as calls and put about ten diffrent types of cla...

Catch up photos

838 days ago by T. D. Reid | 5 comments »

I promised you photographs to catch you up on my current build. First one is my 8 year old son on his first camping trip with dad. We had a break in the rain so he and I wanted to get the kayak and canoe in the water and figured that we would spend the night. We froze when the tempature dipped to below 32 degrees last night and we were trying out a new two man tent. It was fun and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Top rail that sits on top of the head and foot boards.4/4 Quart...
