Go home shelf you're drunk (twisted corner shelf)

05-02-2017 02:58 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

A couple years ago I saw a corner shelf that was a conceptual computer design on Pinterest. I thought it was really cool so I searched the internet for a real-life version, couldn’t find it. so I made one, and it was awesome, not even that difficult. And recently, ive been thinking of how I could make it more practical (A.K.A. bigger shelves) so here is my 2.0 model. Id say it looks just as good if not better than the original. If you would like to see the shelf, and its predecess...

To Give is better than to Receive

04-24-2017 01:53 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube

3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...

shop re start the new RMR #4: stop water penetration and band saw breakdown

04-13-2017 08:58 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

Hello again it’s been slow going in the shop still been darn cold out plus had some water control to get under control. This was the result of poor workmanship of the pole barn that is my shop atm. The perimeter of the buildings ground work was above the bottom of the cur-agate siding, with nothing sealing the outside moisture out. I dug down about 4 inches below the siding, pulled the lower row of screws out and layed 6 mil plastic down tucking it under the siding then replaced the sc...

Projects with Red Oak Flooring leftovers #1: Looking for project ideas

04-07-2017 07:46 PM by Lalen | 8 comments »

I just ended up with about 30+ square feet of brand new leftover red oak hardwood floor material. It is about 3/4” thick, 3.25” wide and in random lengths. It has tongue and groove milled in the sides and the ends. The bottom side has some channels in it, so I’ll have to mill about 1/16th off to make it flat and parallel. (good thing i just got a planer!) Looking for project ideas that will make good use of this! Please comment with thoughts or links! I will keep...
