Outdoor Furniture #9: Finally Finished!

817 days ago by Retsof | 7 comments »

It took me nine days from start to finish, but I’m finally done with my Adirondack Patio Set. I am really tired of painting too! The chairs are sitting by the pool where they and I will be spending Memorial Day. Hunter and Huckleberry, my English Springer Spaniels, approve. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to format my photos so the right 1/3 of the picture doesn’t get cut off when I link them in my blog? If not, I guess I’ll have to make sure all the im...

This Week In the Shop #3: Marble Trestle Table for Grilling

1180 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 1 comment »

There’s a saying in electronic/maker/hacker circles. Sometimes, you just need enough junk before you can start doing cool stuff. You need a “critical mass” of stuff. This trestle table came together because of a “critical mass” of junk. The pressure treated base was scrap pieces from a variety of sources (work, my own projects, etc) and the top came from a neighbor’s remodel. As any maker will tell you: if you don’t collect the stuff somewhere, you don’t get the idea to use it. The pr...

Outdoor Furniture #11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued

796 days ago by Retsof | 0 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons. In this photo, I’ve finished the sanding all the parts, have the tenons glued into the legs, and have the panels installed. Now they are starting to look like planters. One of the changes I ma...

Garden swing #1: The plan

1102 days ago by benihun | 0 comments »

The first thing in creating is imagining. The best way for me to develeop my design floating in my head is to create a 3D model of it on the computer, so I made one in Google SketchUp, which can be viewed and downloaded also. Here is a perspective view of it: Those triangle shaped things between the top and the seat are the boundaries of the chains the seat will be hanging on. The large grid-looking thing represents the rope net for the kids to climb on. The detailed plan for ...
