Lap Easel #1: New start - Challenging myself a little.

1611 days ago by David Craig | 3 comments »

Awhile back, I was experimenting with designs for a type of lap easel for my Mom. Mom had hurt herself at work awhile back and she has difficulty doing a lot of walking. So she was looking into a hobby that she could do while stretched out or sitting on a recliner. She recently developed an interest in drawing so I thought a lap easel would be just the thing for her. Now I could have just went to the store and shelled the 20 bucks for one but, no…, I had to be a woodworker and do it ...

I’ve posted more details about the decision that led me to build a new bench and choice of materials on my personal blog. —thanks for looking.

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

1621 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

Adding a double strike plate to the new shop door.

1622 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

I have lived in my house almost 9 years, the previous owner built the house and the shop. I have always wanted to change the man door on my shop that leads to my house. The old owner put a hollow door and a dead bolt as the only lock system. He also clad the outside of the door in scraps of sheet metal. I recently bought a prehung 6 panel steel entry door to replace the cheaper ugly old one. Being that my friend and I often install stereo equipment in customers cars at my shop I needed a more...

We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal.

New Yankee Blanket Chest #5: Measure Twice, Hand Plane Once!

1629 days ago by HungryTermite | 2 comments »

Today was a fun day with several new lessons learned. I finally got through the crunch of midterms at school and craziness at work to have a day where I could make some sawdust. The next step on the blanket chest was to clean up some of the joints a little bit and then cut the wood for the panels. Well, over the last couple months we have had a lot of rain and the garage has flooded a bit. I dug out the 1×12s that I bought to make the panels and they were all cupped and twisted to th...
