The top and sides were glued up and trimmed a couple of days ago and today I was able to cut the dados and sliding dovetail slots. Of course, I screwed up one of the (supposedly stopped) dados and will need to insert a little block for the, err, stop. I had almost forgotten how much mess routing a dado can make. I made the drawers to a variation of the intended design after discovering that even the slightest deviation between the holes for the shelving wires and the actual wires was enoug...
For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...
Well here it is, the year 2010 and we are planning our newest projects for the year. I have come out with the idea of we use each others talents to enhance our own products. All of us is better at maybe putting a certain cut, or carving out that likeness of and animal a little bit better, or routering those curves, angles or ends on a piece of wood, What ever we are just a little bit better at maybe we can help each other with that special project. I hope maybe my talent of burning that speci...
We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...
Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on some tablesaw upgrades. Now it doesnt matter what kind of tablesaw you have. The first thing you want to do is upgrade your fence and miter gauge for the fence you should look at the bisemeyer fences. For the miter gauge look at the incra miter gauges. You dont have to upgrade to the bisemeyer fence or the incra miter gauge but you should definitely upgrade if you dont your just gonna get pissed and end up upgrading later. Now something that...

Ok – so I finished the settee and it was great and then I had a few friends come over and as soon as they sat down it made a funny noise, and then SLAM!!! To the ground! Everyone was ok only thing damaged was my pride. So needless to say I think I will just buy a chair and leave the seating furniture to the pros… It took 5 days just to get it done. I was so happy. It was made out of MDF and Walnut. I am now on to bigger and easier projects… :) I am building a dinning room...
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...
