Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.
Just tidying up my videos. Here is a book shelf I made last year in our old shop. We get to move into our new shop Monday 12/03/12 . Will post some video of the new set up.
I wanted to show off the little progress I made so far….. The drawers are going together: Here you can see how I used a wooden clamp, clamped to the bench to hold the back of the drawer upright in a 90, while i nail the front on. Once you have the front on, the rest comes easy. Lots of guys make a big deal about jigs they come up with, but I never saw the purpose of them. To get the drawer all the way square, we handle this when the bottom comes on. Wait…. look cl...
Here is a little lamp table I have made to demonstrate hanging a door using butt hinges. In this video I show the process involved to construct the base less the door. The door is constructed and hung in part 2.
Hello LJ’s, As noted in the previous post I’m halfway through the milling of my lumber. I’ve set that aside for the weekend when I can run my machines without waking the kids. For now I’m starting to work on the wooden screw for my leg vise. First I thought I would post some of my sketches for my wooden screw plans. Maybe they will be helpful for someone else. Sorry, not as pretty as Mads sketches… Here is what I got done last night. I had already glued...
Presenting my bathroom shutters! It is getting easier every time, I learn from errors, and fix my previous issues, this one looks much better now, although they’re far from perfect… but here they are…
Tonight I started my saw till. It’s been a long time coming, let me tell you. I’ve had 3 full-size hand saws and 2 backsaws for a while now, but I was putting off making a place for them to live for lots of reasons. Primarily, most of them have not yet been cleaned up, so putting them in a nice rack seemed silly. Then yesterday, my new Bad Axe hybrid dovetail/carcase saw arrived, and I could no longer wait. I needed somewhere to put this beauty right away. No plans for th...
Last weekend I was a bachelor so I got a good 15 hours in the garage. Most of it went into this table. And boy is she taking a lot longer than I originally thought. I still haven’t finished the top. I’m working on attaching the end pieces and well, it’s kicking my butt. Mainly because of the way I went about it I guess. For starters, the top boards are/were 76” long. They needed to be about 73” with a 2” tongue on each end. Being so long, I couldnR...
For the last few years, I have been doing the majority of my work on an old bench that was in my basement when I moved in. As a work surface for dropping old oily lawnmower parts or fiddling with a child’s broken toy, it was adequate. For woodworking, not so much. The height of the bench is about 36 inches and the width was a little over 3 feet. The boards have shifted over the years and the surface was very uneven. The amount of nails and screws made it impossible to safely flatten and...
The shop is under construction, I will try to keep the pics up dated as I near completion. I have been working on the new shop on the weekends for about 3 months now.The shop is 28×24 with a small 5×10 section cut out to avoid cutting down a tree and a 10×12 bump out on the other end that was a shed I built last year and have decided to incorporate it into the new shop we should end up at 630 sq ft small…..but Ill try to make it work.
