Sometimes I think my wife enjoys my hobby more than I do. After all, she keeps coming up with project upon project that she would like me to make for her. Having finally finished that upcycled dresser and shocked all of our friends with the duck painting kits for my daughter’s birthday party, the took the day off to make some progress on the next 2 projects. First on the agenda was to make some headway on the end-grain cutting boards for my in-laws Christmas present. Nothing excit...
I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...
How I made an easy to build sitting bench from five 8’ long 2×6’s. It wasn’t very heavy after but was sturdy as can be. http://youtu.be/npooHpwGqiM
The pantry in our bush house needed some remodeling. The “staircase” inside was really more of a ladder. My wife uses it everyday to go to the loft and hang laundry to dry and has had some close calls when trying to come down. So we did a remodel and built a more legitimate staircase, which also meant moving all of my solar equipment. All the lumber used was from trees I cut down and slabbed. Hopefully this staircase will prove to be more safe (at least after I make a handrail.) ...
Just in time for Halloween! Build this easy made candy dish in the shape of a coffin. after your base is in it’s final dimension (measurements included in video), there is no more measuring-even with the different angles. Check out the video and see how it is made. Please subscribe for more woodworking videos AND blacksmithing videos. And if you want to watch some nonprofessional welding, watch this video below as I create a skeleton out of some scrap metal around the shop.
I have been waiting for parts to actually do the hanging, but over the last couple weeks, I got the frame ready and had time to get the video update put together. Check it out:
I havent had time to Write mutch during summer, and i must admitt tracking in the Mountains and Salomon Fishing have occupied a lott of my time. The summers up here in the Mountains are short, intense and to be enjoyed to its fullest. I have been carving a little to, but not as mutch as i was ment to do. But then charging the batteries for the comming Winter is also important right? :) There is a lott of Projects i have been planning and that will be started this Winter, and i have sev...
The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out bo...
Well, late last night, went out and bought two packs of sandpaper, 60 grit & 100 grit. Gave the pine a good sanding all the way around, with both grits in a Palm sander. Dusted the now smooth mess off. Gave both faces of the door a good thick coat of Kilz Exterior Primer, and let it set overnight. Somehow, I managed to get paint on 9 out of 10 fingers, AND the door, and not one other thing in the entire shop! SKILL! Ok, this morning, brought the door up out of the Dungeon...
