Check this video out and tell me what you think about this weird joint. Hope you guys like the video.
My sister-in-law sent a picture of a bench and asked if I could make one to go in her entryway. The legs on it would’ve required compound angles, which I didn’t really want to deal with so I looked for other similar benches online and found one by Pottery Barn in which the legs were only angled in one direction, not two. So I set about to make it using the pictures from the Pottery Barn website as reference. I used only 2×4’s since I can’t afford to pay for a...
This cabin will have a 9/12 pitch roof, and have petition walls, has plastic windows, and ceilings, and a roof that will open on hinges!
I make a “gift basket form pallet wood. This was fun project and can’t beat free wood! This will be some of the gift baskets we give this year for Christmas. Thanks for watching! Link
This idea has been kicking around in my head for almost a year, and recently gathered momentum due to the fact that I acquired a new (and practical/non-lethal) table saw. I also re-discovered Sketchup after many years, now having something to actually draw. To this point the desk has gone through a lot of practical refactoring: I decided that because I will not have the cash on hand to buy a thickness planer that all the lumber would probably need to be sourced from available dimensional...
Had a few things leftover from the screen door build. Got to thinking about building SOMETHING out of them, just to get them out of the way. Then, I noticed where all the “ready Use” planes were sitting Even the smaller smoothers wer hanging out a bit. Had a 7” wide piece of pine. Laid the longest plane of the group on the plank. Needed to find an angle that it would sit at. Once that was found, a couple “sides” were cut out of the plank The...
After a few days of applying polyurethane, the crates are now fully finished. A total of 3 coats were applied each day for the past 3 days. With that, another project is finished! Now for about a week of curing time, and then they can be put to use. When I declared project completion, my wife’s response was “well, I still want to put some labels and rope handles on them.” My response, “my job is done….” Once the finish is fully cured, a new pr...
All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!
(Note: This blog is the most current, as of November 16. It should be #8.)* Hello winter. We have snow on the ground but nothing like to the north in Wisconsin. Still, timing is everything. I have spent the time between my last blog and now racing the weather to complete the bench and get shop ready for the car to come back. If I had one of those little compacts this would be no big deal, likewise a large garage. But the car is a Durango and the shop is only 18×20. And my pl...
Why buy it when you can make it! #24: Storage Crates [Part 5] - Do you want to do some special painting with daddy?
Braving the cold weather today meant I was able to finish sanding and apply the stain. Rather than spending the time staining on my own, I asked my daughter if she wanted to do some “special painting” with daddy. So off we went to apply the first coat of stain. All that arts and crafts time with mommy must have paid off cause this 3 year old did an awesome job. I decided to try Rustoleum Ultimate Wood Stain and was surprised to see acceptable blotching. The 1-2 hour re-coat t...
