I’ve got a very small shop footprint, which means that every square foot is important (yes, I know, what shop, no matter what size is that not the case?). To that end, I’ve always had the idea in the back of my mind that the Ultimate Tool Stand design from american woodworker magazine. There have been several built ‘here’, but I never felt the need to finalize it. Years ago, I started building a version of it, but ‘stopped’ after I made the top part of t...
I’ve had several requests for pickin’ stick plans. I’ve now posted the plans that I put together a couple of years ago. If you build one, please make sure to post a picture so everyone can see it. Enjoy! http://www.soundsofdovecreek.com/Building%20a%20Pickin%20Stick.pdf
I am planning a relative small but functional workshop of 28’ by 16 ’. Any good ideas and plans are welcome:- What floor (wood, cork, etc.), should I use?- Looking for plans or photos for integrating a workbench, router and table saw in a functional unit?
Just started making 30 cutting boards from some Camphor laurel.I have dressed the timber, cut the curves on each end, drilled a hole in one corner on all of them ….and have routed a chamfer on the edges and sanded several… will finish them tomorrow and have them ready for the Brisbane show..NO pics yet… will save that for the full post…
18 days, and more research Ive finally arrived at the time when its time to put blade to wood. In part 1 I uploaded my sketch up version I fashioned, only to change. Im sure this will change some more. Never followed instructions in school, so why should I follow my own here?Included in this marathon of woodworking, will be a saw bench. I downloaded some plans for one from Christopher Swartz blog, Lost Art Press. I’ve selected a bunch of Cherry that was given to me, yes sometimes even ...
I created a LumberJocks Project Repository Google’s 3D Warehouse for Sketchup drawings. It is intended to by used by anyone to share thier measured drawings. The URL is: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/cldetails?mid=e4bcd868f18e00c637bf0af0d187c9a4&prevstart=0
Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...
I have been looking around and I have found the perfect sign that i want to make. I will use a 6’‘X2’ peice of cedar and carve ”Love Shack” on it then I will paint the inside with a glossy black paint!!!!
Well here is the Main body with most of the supports… I started by cutting 4 10 inch 2X4s and laminated them to make a pair. Those pieces will become the two main supports of the gun rest. I then Cut 4 More lengths of 2X4 to 18 in and glued two on each side in a stacking pattern to make up the side supports…Still all I have used only 112 inches of 2X4 and titebond II. In this picture you see the place where the gun will actually rest.Not 100% sure on the dimen...
Well I have a fully functioning Layout Compass now :D. All that is left is to do the shaping of the legs and some purtification of them. I am still working out the details of the purtification but in the end they should be pretty purty lol. All the pieces laid out with epoxy curing on the pins.. So today was filled with frustration and epoxy and a lot of brass dust. It started with cleaning up the mortise that the arc goes through and embedding the head of a copper rivet into the...
