Building and Painting a Step Stool

154 days ago by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

I had a customer ask if I could make a pine step stool. Here’s what I came up with. We will need five pieces: two sides, a brace, a step, and a top This is the (right) side piece, with the two holes drilled on the inner face, for the brace. The holes do not go through to the outside, this way no screws are used and therefore no screws show in the finished stool: This is the back brace, which sits between the sides. I glued two dowels on each end which will f...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #6: tote tray

155 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, two coats of varnish on the chest, and rubbed out. Picked up a 1×10 pine scrap. Tray that is in the back is….ok, but could use one I can lift out and haul stuff around in. Measured the inside available area. Just about 25” long. Hmmm, a backsaw’s tote sticks upa bit, so things got a little narrower. Measure the plank, an UGLY one at that Figured I could get at least three 25” long slabs out of it. Clamped the plank to the bench, marked a ...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #5: Lid is installed

160 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Amongst other things Laid out a few tools to install some hinges The scratch awl will mark the screw location, just a tap or two. Then run a steel screw in a bit. That way, a pilot hole is done. Marked out the hinge locations, using the hinge itself. Then a bit of chisel work on the top edge of the case Then pare away the waste. mark the screw holes with a pencil, use the awl to start a hole.. Used the locations on the case to lay out where they will go on the lid. Firs...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #4: Glue-ups!

164 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Getting things put together, Finally!! Sides have been “fixed”, front and back panels are done. Needed to drill some counter-bored pilot holes to assemble the sides to the front and back. Small forstner bit for a counter bore in the Drill press. Haul the slab of the front to the press, go to drill the first hole….table tilts! So, dig through the tool boxes, find the right sized wrench, and tilting table tilts no more. Got the front and backs drilled, time for som...

Overkill Dog Gate

165 days ago by Rockindokken | 2 comments »

My lovely Fiance’s dog loves to wander about my house and pee if you’re not watching her, so we needed a way to contain the 10 lbs of Yorkie Fury. I do have to say she’s probably the quietest and laziest Yorkie I’ve ever met, so this gate didn’t need to be anything large. I have a Bearded Collie, but he’d never try to defeat a gate, he’s just not into making me upset. My fiance wanted to buy a dog gate online, GASP! I told her I had a pile of scra...

Workbench build - roubo #1: Legs first

169 days ago by buck_cpa | 3 comments »

Legs first… I know this seems backwards (especially given the various blogs and books on the subject) but I’m going to give it a shot. My neighbor gave me a 12’ 6×6 pressure treated beam. I read somewhere that you should not use this stuff in the shop, but I’ve been around the stuff my whole life and it hasn’t affected me. Nevertheless, that’s what I’m using for the legs. I cut the legs to 35” on the chopsaw and planed them square (they ...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

176 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.
