Underway again...finally #4: Actual work accomplished...such as it is/was/whatever

11-02-2017 11:37 PM by JohnTM | 0 comments »

Once again, good intentions were overcome by the exigencies of life (can you tell that I’m an over-educated man of words??? I knew that you could.). Yup, yup, yup. Little sleep last night due to a continuously barking dog kept me up til 5am which meant I didn’t roll out of bed until nearly noon. Then, “brunch” until 1:30pm with Dad (I live with him and it’s my responsibility to see that he actually eats because that’s when he takes his daily meds…)...

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...

Le Petite Bookcase

04-11-2008 02:13 AM by BertJ | 4 comments »

I designed this bookcase using the Golden Mean ratio. The narrowest part of the side frames (where the middle shelf is located) is 0.6 the height of the bookcase. http://www.shininghorizonschool.org-a.googlepages.com/orientalbookcase The dyed maple frames are doweled except for the top of the center stile, which has two pocket screws. (The center stile and lower front stretcher are not the same thickness as the other frame parts, giving the project a nice shadow line.) The frames are...

Wooden Mechanics style tool box/chest

09-12-2009 09:15 AM by tooldad | 1 comment »

This is my next project, a wooden mechanic’s style tool chest and I will have a matching top to go with it. All in all I expect about 30 drawers. At least I bought enough of the handle material to do so. My plan is full extension drawer slides. 2 1/2” drawers except for the bottom 2 rows. The top chest will have a hinged lid with shock absorber supports. If I’m going to drop a grand on a nice toolbox, I might as well build it, is my thinking. My question for the mass...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...

Instruments #1: Archtop Guitar

08-28-2016 06:17 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Looks as if I can’t make furniture like the rest of you folks… I’m forever stuck making instruments… This guitar took me two years to make partly because I started from scratch. No molds or jigs so I had to make them. I got the bug to try an archtop because 1. play guitar, 2. always wanted one, 3. it costs a lot less to just go out an buy one ready made. Here’s the process beginning to the end. Layout Transfer to wood blank At...

Enzo Mari table mod project #2: New plans look good. But will it work?

01-23-2012 03:46 PM by JAcker | 0 comments »

Ok, starting with my reversed engineered model of the table, it was time to get to work (I am not a real-time blogger, so this and the last few posts cover about a week). My design criteria -1. Large (72×40) table extending to full-sized 108×40 table2. Maintain design elements of original but highlight additional tooling and higher quality wood3. Buildable (by me) I decided to use equalizer slides rather than the ones where you move the legs. This causes some problems but avoi...

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...
