Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Shop stuff #67: Upgrading the shop

12-04-2016 10:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After the coffee table build I took some time to get a bit further along on the shop itself. Doing it a bit at a time is not really the recommended way of doing it, but it is what the budget allows. This is a long term project and I throw a little at a time into it. I never heard of a shop being truly “done” anyway. I didn’t think I had enough footage for a video, but it turns out I had more than enough, so there will be another update in the near future. View on You...

Mixer StandDrawing

12-01-2016 06:19 PM by Lalen | 5 comments »

So my mom’s been talking about putting a stand for her heavy, kitchen aid mixer at the end of her kitchen counter. I thought i might be able to build something so we collaborated on the design to fit the space. I drew it in Sketchup Some new adventures for me… 1. getting good tight miter corners on the framing of the top.. Outside board will be 5.5” to look like a very thick top.2. 4 side tapered leg. (time to build a tapering jig for my table saw)3. mo...

Cherry Projects #1: Box - Planning the Project

11-22-2016 06:16 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 2 comments »

Hi! It’s been a little but since I’ve posted. Now that Phoenix, AZ isn’t so hot I can get back out in the shop comfortably more often. More time equals more projects. More projects means more experience. More experience (to me) means more creativity and more exploration. So, cherry is on sale down at Woodworkers Source on the I17 frontage road between bell road and union hills. It’s about $5/bft so I bought about $50 worth; I’m tempted to go and buy more nex...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

3-in-1 baby bed #1: The plan, the stock, and some adjustments

11-14-2016 07:41 AM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

The start of this series is long overdue, as I “began” this project in March (quotes on “began”, as I had a very slow start) before the birth of my first child. Well, along came the June due date and suddenly I have a family of three, and not always a lot of time to get things done in the garage. Well, my daughter is now 4-1/2 months old, and I’m of course still not finished, so I had to get a crib for her from Craigslist. I’m sure this isn’t a...

Gaming Table Marquetry #1: Re-creating Gaming Table using Pewter, Brass and Faux Tortoiseshell

11-02-2016 11:54 PM by smokey56 | 3 comments »

In this first issue of a series of re-creating a gaming table will begin with collecting the materials and the research on putting the project together. Below is the table housed presently in a German museum Schloss Anholt near The Netherlands/German border. There were some difficulties in getting accurate measurements and specific designs, so my wife, Ronelle, and I “had” to go over there to see and embrace the table. The curator and the staff there were very permissive in mea...
