Christmas Gifts #1: Toy Machine Shed 2017 Planning/Brainstorming

12-04-2017 10:27 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

What do you buy for the farming addicted tween who has every farm implement/tractor/combine under the sun? Nothing. You make him a machine shed for all of his toys. This year, instead of trying to figure out what to buy my eldest son, I decided to try my hand at making him something. He’s been hoarding boxes for years to use as sheds for his farm toys, and this year I decided that I’m tired of the motley assortment of cardboard boxes lying around with tractors in them, so I’...

Making the Penrose Sliding Trivet

12-03-2017 04:38 PM by Woodbutchery | 4 comments »

Lazyman posted his sliding trivets a few years back, and after a lot of banging around, I Put together one of these, but there were a few problems with my design; the pieces tended to want to come apart, and I wanted something to hold the trivet together so that you couldn’t easily slide it apart. After a little knocking around and a suggestion from my mother, I came up with the item below. So. Pieces are milled to 3/8” thickness and 3/4” width. I use “se...

Underway again...finally #15: Rain, rain. Go away...

11-30-2017 07:34 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Not a long downpour, but heavy enough to cause work to stop.This after a short morning due to the roofing guys returning and starting work on the carport roof. They actually took up the existing tar paper, ripped a long, rotten 2×6 out replaced it before the rain hit. Luckily, their work seems to be “holding”, that is, not leaking anywhere obvious. OTOH, the wind blew the wet stuff all over the carport area, leading to an early end for my day’s effort. I may have spo...

Underway again...finally #14: Sidetracked - but it's a good thing, really, it is!

11-30-2017 12:24 AM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

No, I didn’t get anything done on the mobile table saw and cabinet base.Yes, I got sidetracked – but it was a good thing! REALLY! Started off looking for 2×3’s to act as connecting pieces between the cabinets. Ran into this mess:and this:and this:Seriously – can you find the 8-foot long 2×3’s? It took me over 5 minutes and I’m the one who put it “there”. So, I sat down and thought – ”This has to be fixed. Wasting time...

Underway again...finally #13: Post-Thanksgiving return to "work"

11-28-2017 11:34 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Well, I took a few days off to “do stuff”.. you know. Life happens. Too many obligations. Earache returned. S_ happens You know how it goes. Anyway, didn’t construct/build anything again. Instead, I ran out to my favorite pallet wood place and got some more… It’s way easier mentally to dismantle than to build… and you really can’t “fail” dismantling. Oh, you can make a mess and destroy things you’re trying to salvage. But you just...

Recover(ing/ed) and change in construction direction

11-15-2017 10:57 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

My earache has subsided, though it’s weird that as soon as I go outside, the symptoms return (though less than the last time out each time I do go out). Anyway, will be back “to it” tomorrow for certain. The change in construction direction comes courtesy of Craigslist. As I had nothing better to do while holed up inside dealing with the earache and accompanying bouts of vertigo, fever and fuzzy vision, I haunted CL for the last few days and kept seeing a couple different...

Underway again...finally #8: Actually made cuts today

11-08-2017 01:13 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Yes, you read the title correctly. I actually made cuts today. After examining the smallest/shortest of 4 palletized plywood pieces, I decided to experiment with it – why gamble with the biggest, right? We’ll jump to the end of day pic first to provide context for the rest of the entry.Okay, so that’s where I wound up…the mockup is upside down though. The red arrows show fork lift tine cutouts in 2×4’s that I decided to “salvage” by filling th...

Underway again...finally #7: Analysis paralysis, but progress...kinda

11-07-2017 01:10 AM by JohnTM | 5 comments »

Spent hours and hours de-nailing the pallet haul. When I got to the plywood pieces, I was overwhelmed and disappointed by the construction. There were over 90 nails in the plywood – over 90!That pic shows just some of the nails on one side along one edge. Examining the construction left me with the realization that trying to de-nail that and salvage the plywood would be an exercise in time-wasting and material destruction, not salvage. Luckily, that point was before I actually wasted an...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #2: Well that didn't take long

11-06-2017 07:09 PM by Bluenote38 | 6 comments »

Of course not – I’ve been thinking about this for about 6 months. And like most have done a LOT of internet searches on “Tool Cabinets”; “Toolboxes”; “Tool Chests” (Yes I have the book); “Hanging Tool Cabinets”; “Tool Hanging”; “Tool Storage” and several more permutations. If you think I may have missed one let me know. There are hundreds of solutions, as many as there are Woodworkers, and so many great id...
