I had an idea today for a couple of pieces I plan to make for my shop. Im sure its nothing new but I think it will be handy in my single car garage shop. I figure the mobile cart is handy and then why not add a table to sit on top as a feed table and finishing table. All of which will be mobile. Here are the quick plans I drew up. I didnt add measurements because right now I dont have a clue how big or small I want to make it.
Just after I started this project we get an actual bona-fide offer on our house, which we accepted. Which of course means I have to pack up the shop. But I was part way through building a cupboard… OK, so finish it quick so it can be moved as furniture and not partly assembled chunks of junk. Sounds an excellent plan, yes? You know what they say about plan though – “No plan survives contact with the enemy” which in its original form is attributed to Field Marshal vo...
For the following project, I received some requests for more information and plans. I finally got around to learning Google SketchUp this weekend and drew these up. Let me know of any improvements needed please. It was built around the flag I received on the way out, which was 3’ x 5’.This goes out to any and all in hopes it’ll be used for other veterans.Textured: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4067/4321533912_5fd8981153_b.jpgLined/Xray/Wireframe: http://far...
I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while
This is my first project since joining the site, and my second woodworking project overall. Last week, I completed the Kreg workbench so I’d have an area to build other projects on. After seeing the shoerack built by mckenziedrums here: _http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26304_ I liked the project so well, I thought I’d try to closely reproduce it, with a few changes of my own. I didn’t have, nor did I want to purchase any curly maple. I also just picked up a couple c...
Hi everyone. Thought I would put out a feeler and see if anyone was interested in another Arizona Picnic/Get together? This would be shooting for the last weekend in Febuary, Saturday, the 27th. Probably at the WoodWorkers Source in Tempe. The same person owns the north store and they treated us real good last November. If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...
I’ve always really liked the idea of having a booth or booths in my home that would be separate from the dining room and used more regularly as a breakfast nook, or a place to study or just to have more room when we have family over for the holidays. Anyway, we’re remodeling our whole main floor and I would like to put two non-stationary booths in the newly opened-up kitchen. Once again, this should be a very sturdy piece. I had wider boards on the top of the tabl...
Here is my second attempt at designing an entryway bench. The top is similar to the first, but I’ve changed to to include less angle cuts. I’m still very fresh to woodworking and while I don’t doubt my ability to properly measure and cut angles, I would rather focus on my joinery and finishing techniques than worry about angles. So, I’ve straightened out the legs, added stretchers across the bottom of the legs, and added a shelf of sorts for shoes and whatever e...
Hi folks I’m totally new to this site and still not quite sure where to posts news. This one is about my future outfeed table and I’ve only now finished the sketchup for it. Still have small problem with it and I’m definitely curious about your comments beore I go further. As I explained in my intro, I’m in the process of setting up my shop and it’ll be very close to what’s shown in a FineWoodworking article by Matthew Teague titled : “Smart sho...
Yo whats up everybody today I took down my old clamp rack and set up a new one. Then I started organizing all of the cut offs and the shorter pieces of wood.
