Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Underway again...finally #9: Progress... seriously.

11-18-2017 03:27 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

You read that correctly. I made actual progress. (This is not fine furniture. It’s a workstation that will remain outdoors 24/7 and is made 99% from freebies [CL and pallet wood]..... It’s also the first real project I’ve ever done – since high school 45 years ago, at least.)Here’s the end of Day 1 pic as proof:No, it’s not screwed and glued together. Just placed it all in approximately the correct final places. So, here’s how the day went. First, ...

Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

Underway again...finally #8: Actually made cuts today

11-08-2017 01:13 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Yes, you read the title correctly. I actually made cuts today. After examining the smallest/shortest of 4 palletized plywood pieces, I decided to experiment with it – why gamble with the biggest, right? We’ll jump to the end of day pic first to provide context for the rest of the entry.Okay, so that’s where I wound up…the mockup is upside down though. The red arrows show fork lift tine cutouts in 2×4’s that I decided to “salvage” by filling th...

Daves Workshop #20: Prepping pine bead board wainscotting.

11-07-2017 04:35 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

For my bathroom remodel, we are prepping pine bead board wainscotting to be painted bright white. I set up a makeshift production stop using pretty much any old scrap I could cobble together in the shop and went to town at it. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think! And again, sorry about using external links, but the embed code from Youtube doesn’t seem to work here, and the embed generator previously shown here that I have used in the past relies on Adobe Fla...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...

Making a home for my 45 plane #5: Finishing the exterior, and DONE!

10-08-2017 02:54 AM by CO_Goose | 2 comments »

Now that everything had a home, I removed it all so that the exterior could be finished. After a light sanding to round over the sharp edges, I applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) for a minor amount of protection. The corners were also reinforced with 1/4” walnut dowels for a nice contrast to the pine. Remember that board for the base and lid? Well after the BLO hit it, it was obvious that it was not pine, but cherry, so that is providing another contrast to the box as well. ...

Making a home for my 45 plane #4: The interior, giving everything a home.

10-08-2017 02:35 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

Once the box was assembled, all of the little braces for the interior were next on the agenda. The interior was done by TLAR (That Looks About Right), no measurements, just grabbing scraps of wood at hand and making them fit where I wanted them to. This first picture shows one of the long rod holders, and the blade box hole. the long rods lean up against the end of the box, and two 3/4” square pieces capture them in place there. They do not go to the top of the box since that would...

Making a home for my 45 plane #3: Making the box

10-08-2017 02:19 AM by CO_Goose | 1 comment »

Making the Box itself is pretty straightforward. The Japanese style is basically a really big box joint, only three pins per joint. First the sides were cut to size, then the joints were formed using the table saw, sorry, no hand tools here. the pins were fine tuned with a chisel and the ends were chamfered using a small block plane. The sides used up most of the wide board that I had made, so I went off the the leftover pile of lumber and found a another board that I had picked up ...
