TV Stand

08-31-2010 12:44 AM by johnnymo | 3 comments »

A friend of mine asked me if I can make a small TV stand that will fit a speaker underneath it so naturally I said yes. I’m using stock material that has been laying around for about a year and this should be enough for the project at hand.So far I have planed and jointed all the boards to thickness, cut them to a rough dimension and glued together boards for the side and top using biscuits.These are for the stand sides.This will be for the oval top.Since I have a limited supply of cla...

Yea, I thought so too. I decided on a loft bed after seeing a few with play areas built under them, and decided tha...

Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #3: Day 1 photos

08-28-2010 01:07 PM by daltxguy | 2 comments »

Some photos of day 1 – milling a pine log. Today we cut a section of the windblown pine, dragged it into place (literally), setup the mill and everyone had a go at cutting a few pieces of wood. Not a lot of pieces of wood but the point was for everyone to have a go and to mix up the types and sizes of cuts for practice and instruction and for fun. Only 1 mishap when the poorly balanced ( and grossly undersized trailer of mine) bounced off of the hitch from an underperforming hitch l...

Pallets 4 me woot woot #1 #1: Hoping for ideas

08-03-2010 08:54 PM by mcoyfrog | 6 comments »

Ok so I just started getting these pallets from a furniture store for free, most are pine but there are a few every once in a while that are oak. I’m planning on using them for all sorts of things and would like some of your ideas as well. First on my plate is a second chicken coop. I thought I would make it entirely out of the pallets and as easy as possible. Heres what I’m thinking let me know your ideas. I’ll set 2 pallets on the ground with bricks as a foundatio...

Episode 76 Milescraft Sign Crafter from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I set up demo and review the milescraft sign crafter. The sign crafter includes everything you need to make a sign. I cut a Baltimore Ravens sign and it turned out looking pretty good. I am a New York Giants fan but I am making this sign for a friend. This week I started working on a sign for a local firehouse.

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #4: Sawhorse the second - the 'aaaahhh' version.

08-03-2010 01:30 AM by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

I finished my sawhorses this afternoon—I have to say that having a sawhorse to use made building the second sawhorse much easier. It was also educational. I learned not to nail the sawhorse to the floor, and that the stringers should be nailed on the outside so that when you put your foot up on them to saw something they stay attached to the sawhorse and don’t pop off. This one was nice – I was in the zone. It went together like a dream, in very close to the titular...

Visit to Tule Peak Timber

08-01-2010 06:35 AM by CraigTurner | 1 comment »

I was looking online for rustic wood for a cabinet I want to build and came upon Tule Peak Timber. My wife and I drove out to see what they had to offer and were very pleased. Rob, the owner was very helpful in explaining the different types of wood and what would work best for us. He told us about and suggested we join because it would be very helpful. I really appreciate Rob taking his time to help us out. I saw some of the work he’s done and it looked like high end q...

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #1: Bought my lumber.

08-01-2010 04:53 AM by AnnaEA | 3 comments »

Hit the Busy Beaver today and bought all the lumber I need to make the 14 minute sawhorses. Right now it is all stacked up in Bill’s shed—tomorrow I will go over and use his table saw to cut all the lengths I need. It’s all pine, construction grade 2×4s. The guy in the lumber yard and I went through it all piece by piece picking out lengths that will be decent. Two of the pieces are really nice—I’ll use those for the I-beams, so that the tops wi...

Note: not only is the box in progress, this post is as well.. I hope to add more to it. After experimenting with basic box making I finally have one going that I’m satisfied with. This is my fourth box and my first with a lid. I’ll be trying something me for me to finish the box.. I’m going to try a two in one product.. I think it’s called ‘Poly Shades’ by Minwax.

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #4: Out with the old, in with the,.. well,.. much older.

07-26-2010 12:05 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

After the final phase of glue up for the legs, putting the top on was a piece of cake. Clamp, countersink, screw, (so it can be adjusted if ever necessary)¬†and this puppy is ready for work. Well, it’s ready for it’s close up,... then work (or play) depending on your perspective. Goodbye workmate,¬†Hello, nurse! I left in that metal plate on the ends. For looks and added weight. Plus it makes a handy chisel holder! As you can see by the outsid...
