Path To A New Workshop #1: The Intro/Situation

12-15-2014 12:09 AM by Vactet | 2 comments »

Hi folks.Well first post here. Found out about this site from Pintrest pins leading to it and found it extremely helpful. Figured I’d chronicle my not-so-little project here via these blogs. So here we go. [WARNING: This entry is going to be highly text heavy] Short history lesson first. Started my own business in June of this year (2014). Was currently living in a house that I was renting for various reasons but had every intent of buying a house shortly. Prior to that lived in a Co...

Epic Desk: 'The Consummate Indoorsman' #1: Spitballing. Lots of Spitballing.

12-05-2014 03:43 PM by StillTooShort | 0 comments »

This idea has been kicking around in my head for almost a year, and recently gathered momentum due to the fact that I acquired a new (and practical/non-lethal) table saw. I also re-discovered Sketchup after many years, now having something to actually draw. To this point the desk has gone through a lot of practical refactoring: I decided that because I will not have the cash on hand to buy a thickness planer that all the lumber would probably need to be sourced from available dimensional...

Student desk #1: Frame and top.

12-01-2014 02:41 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I’ve been working on my son’s desktop for a while now. I have a Christmas due date so I had to get a move on. The desk frame took me all weekend. That really surprised me. I imagine I could go a lot faster If I didn’t fly by the seat of my pants all the time. A plan might be helpful. Any how, I’m using rabbit joint joints for the first time and they came with a whole bundle of lessons. They didn’t come out perfect but I believe I can do better next t...

Thorsen House Cabinet #4: Joinery Considerations

11-26-2014 04:39 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Today I was a little ill and took the time to do the numbers and futz around between my initial CAD plan and the Solidworks model. At this point – if it was not immediately apparent during the CAD work – I usually start rattling out the differences between the on-paper plan (although no paper has been harmed as of yet) and the working methods I’ll use to produce the end product. This is usually an ongoing process from the initial inception of a product anyway, however by the...

Thorsen House Cabinet #3: Basic Component Appraisal

11-26-2014 10:07 AM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Things have started to fit into place, if you forgive the awful phrasing. Specifically, I have been identifying exactly which parts of the original cabinet correspond to either fundamental components (“top”, “muntin”, “skirt”, “side”, “base”, etc.) or parts built upon those fundamental pieces such as door frame moulding. A lot of this was done by careful examination of the relatively limited materials available and basic sense checki...

(Short Video) Here's a marshmallow crossbow I made for my daughter. She loves it.

11-24-2014 04:38 PM by BTimmons | 2 comments »

(Edited) Looks like I forgot to link to the actual video. Sorry! Inspiration courtesy of Steve at Woodworking for Mere Mortals. That link has free plans so you can make one yourself. I didn’t follow the plans to the letter, I watched the video once with my daughter and just kinda winged it from memory, so astute viewers might note that a few details are off. When my almost five year old is “helping”, I don’t exactly have the same focus and time to make somethin...

Thorsen House Cabinet #2: Preliminary CAD plan and design specifics

11-24-2014 04:13 PM by EläväPuu | 1 comment »

I spent 3-4 hours this weekend poring over photos and videos of the original piece in situ. This is one of the appealing pleasures of Greene & Greene work and definitely one that feeds into my natural tendency for puzzles and rocket scientistism. Overall, the dimensions are not too far removed from the original which is fantastic in terms of not having to re-calculate proportioning to keep everything in check. The area the cabinet will be fitted within is 1640mm (64-1/2”) wid...
