For an alarming length of time my two printers have been sitting on the floor in my home office. Ironically I’m about to move but nonetheless it is time to make some more satisfactory accommodation for them. I need space for a laser printer/copier and a photo printer along with storage space for the accompanying papers (piles of the stuff, all sorts of different types and sizes) and inks and toners and probably snacks for the little men that live inside to do the actual painting work. I...
Well you all know me, well I’ll pretend you do. LOL. I like to start things when I have to much to do. That way I always have something to do, and can complain that I don’t have enough time for any of it. LOL. This is the beginning to almost a joke. At work I had to rip some beech mouldings down for a customer and the fall off was very thin strips of material. They are around 1/32” thick x 1/4” ish. There was a ton of moulding to rip, so I have a ton of these strip...
Finally had a weekend with shop time, but alas – mother nature had other plans. Saturday was 14 degrees (F). a bit on the chilly side of things, but I figured I need to make use of that time. so I took out the phenolic sheet (36”x36”) and marked it for both 24” width and 28” width. I wanted to get a visual representation of the actual top size. the 28” looked a bit too wide in sketchup, and the 24” is the “standard” when you purchase a ...
In this episode of the tool life audio podcast I do a review of the fine woodworking archive dvd and I talk about some project that I am working on. If you want to be interviewed or you have any tips links or any questions send them in. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
I changed the title of this series since this next entry uses wood I don’t think I could ever throw away (it used to say “burn bucket” instead of “scrap pile”). I have had these this planks of cherry for a long time. They are about 24”x3.25”x1/8”. This is another case where I do not have a design, but I’ll figure it out as I go… I had cut them for a project that didn’t work out and they have sat ever since. I decided to ...
Well plenty of time has passed since i started this project idea, and in that time i worked hard on visualising the design i had and putting pencil to paper and working out dimensions of all the parts construction and joints my head was busy with all the details of the project. the overall size shall be 310mm high 510mm wide and 300mm deep, with 3 drawers approx 60mm high the handels shall be a curve across the front in walnut which shalll be resesed into the drawer fronts, after the sketches...
It really started a while back, I got hooked on the idea of a router lift for the table after seeing the Incra Router lift with the magnetic inserts. after that the obsession was fed by finding Woodpeckers’ router lifts with the quick release mechanism which allows for quick lift of the router to rough positioning, and for pulling it all the way up for over the table bit change. then came the Woodpeckers PRL-V2 (also rebranded by Incra with their magnetic inserts, and recently also r...

Hey Everyone! The left side of my kitchen is really beginning to look like a kitchen. I am gettiing very excited, because the next step we are taking tommoro, is putting my kitchen sink in….......YAY!!! I have three more cabinets to build. Two upper that go on each side of my stove, the third goes above my refridgerator. The two upper cabinets that go on each side of my stove are 60 inches long. They fit on the top of my countertops. My husband is installing granite tile for my c...
I’m lazy and like to use computers to do things for me, so I threw this together quickly. =) I wanted to make some Sawmill Creek style cutting boards, sized to fit in a medium flat rate box, and didn’t feel like doing the math. (Cutting board tutorial here: http://www.sawmillcreek.org/articles/2/) The length doesn’t matter, but you need to take into account kerf size and such when figuring how much wood you need to make these, and I made it calculate the blade offset...
