Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBb81zPeVCXMFdibTFpRHdySGsThanks for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...
I don’t have much done yet. I started by going on thedesignconfidential.com to get my plans. Then I started by cutting the pine to the right size for the project. Lastly I only have some of it done but will get more done over time.
Here’s an update of what’s going on. It’s fun to write about these things because you never know who is going to give good feed back, or what advice really hits home. So, thanks to y’all that read these. I read yalls too! And… WOW are there some beautiful projects out there. French Cleat: Inspired by watching April Wilkerson on YouTube. This has been a real confidence builder. Since I’ve always loved technology and heard of sketch up from a random You...
Before I get underway, the first tip has to be…It doesn’t matter how careful you are, accidents still happen I started cutting for my sanding blocks, don’t ask what happened, I don’t know, I just know I was aware I was about to have a kickback on the table saw, I was using push blocks, tried to get out of the way, and in doing so, lost one and a bit finger tips!! The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...
here is a link to my bench video: https://youtu.be/29BgWjv5n6A In this Video, I’m building a bench with my daughter’s assistance for our BBQ area. My influence was Izzy Swan’s video “Pay it forward bench.” Basic construction grade lumber was used with glue and pocket screws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paf4H...Lizzy’s Video
https://youtu.be/JBLvcSFJ6Qo – here is the link to my video. I started this project one day when my daughter commented that she could beat me at the game of chess. While she was at school, I attempted to build a board with Purple Heart and Yellow Heart to play with. When I had nearly finished she arrived home from school and I asked if she would help me finish it. In the process some footage lost so we started again. The first board was aligned end grain so even though I used e...
We’re at it again! After using the router for the first time and finding just how much saw dust one can generate I decided to again rearrange the garage and dig out old tools and items to sell on offer up and Craigslist. We made about $250 which covered the cost of the 2 hp “industrial” single stage dust collector from Harbor Freight. I spoke to the manager about what these kids and I have been doing and that we needed a system. She went above and beyond by offering to honor...
I got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin bu...
Easy made side table for a porch or just to sit next to some chairs. Next is the mortises and finishing.
MY “WHAT IF” PROTOTYPE BOX. THE FINISHED BOX. If you are interested, I’m posting a blog on this box including the steps Murphy guided me through. LOL! What I’ve learned on Lumberjock’s says that a box is not a box. I’ve seen many wonderful and varied ”Art Boxes” on Lumberjock’s. My original excitement for this art form came from Andy who posted blogs on how to build his type of Art Box. The next inspirational artist is ”thesout...
