Random shop notes #2: Other people working.

08-04-2010 11:22 PM by AnnaEA | 0 comments »

Today’s been a day of other people working—I had a guy from the community maintenance staff looking at my down spouts, and there will be an electrician coming in a couple of hours to give me an estimate of what it’ll cost to run a couple of dedicated circuits for my shop and tell me if I need a sub panel or not. That’s right – my 84 square foot patch of the basement is going to get all gussied up with some dedicated circuits! One for lighting and charging un...

Random shop notes #1: Puttering.

08-04-2010 04:07 AM by AnnaEA | 3 comments »

Puttered around in the shop space for a little while tonight. Got the chunk of wood out of my vise, and gave both vises a quick inspection and spray of wd-40. Took a few measurements for the space plan. Got rid of some junk. The plumbing stack is a 4 inch pipe, ten inches away from the rear wall, and 34 inches away from the side wall. I rolled my big tree trunk round over behind it. I think I could put the drill press stand to one side of the stack, and a shelving/storage uni...

Impossible II

08-03-2010 06:39 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hi everyone. Here is the method for making the Impossible II. Before we start I didn’t take any photos during the build for this one. I needed to concentrate full time on it and taking pics can be distracting. The CAD drawings provided here should do the job . I’ve seen Steve (spalm) use this sort of thing to great effect. I’m not giving exact sizes, you can scale things off of the pics. This will give you the angles too, mostly 60°. First the complete pattern You ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #60: What To Do Next?

08-02-2010 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

You know you are getting older when you have to recoup from the weekend. Not because you were doing any wild partying or anything like that. Just because you were active and busy and there didn’t seem to be a moment to spare. What fun though! Yesterday was another great day. I spent the morning and early afternoon catching up on housework and preparing the food I was bringing to the cookout. I finished the majority of what I wanted to do before we left. We had a really nice visi...

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...

My first simple box #2: Mitering and the BIG question.

07-30-2010 01:49 AM by Benighted | 7 comments »

Were moving along here, this time I’ll be mitering, and this will be done with a jig on the shooting board. Like this: Two edges mitered… Outside of mitered joint, not perfectly aligned in this dry fit test. inside of joint: Now to the BIG Question… Which wood do you think I should use for the top and bottom… the choices are: Maple: Cocobolo: Purpleheart: Wenge: I also have some bubinga, but it’s a little bit to thin for the look ...

The New Workbench Journey #5: My Design/Plan

07-28-2010 08:00 PM by DrJosh | 4 comments »

Well, after much fiddling around with the design parameters and Sketchup (which I’m still pretty inexperienced at using), I have my “finalized” plan for my new workbench. I had toyed with the idea of trying to make this bench a knock-down bench, but I had difficulty figuring out exactly how to make that work. So, this will be a permanant build using glue, screws, and half-lap joints to connect the legs and stretchers. The top is going to be a doubled up slab of 3/4&#...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #55: Back to "Normal"

07-28-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It feels really good this time to come down from such a hard push. It is funny, but it takes a while to gradually sink in that the urgency is no longer there. I wonder if it is chemical thing in our brains or something. I am sure adrenalin has something to do it. I spent yesterday glowing in the aftermath of the previous couple of weeks. Much of the morning I caught up on correspondence in between applying coats of finish to my kitchen table. Miraculously, none of the cats decided to ...
