Shop storage projects #3: Drawing up a Plan

01-03-2017 02:26 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Not every day that I will try to draw up a plan, usually done inside my overworked brain. Sometimes, though, I need to make a few squiggles on some paper, to help find what size of parts are needed. Such is the case for the Chest o’Drawers project. 5 drawers have been decided on. 2 from 1×8 x 8’, 2 from a couple of 1×6 x 8’ and one 1×4 x8’ . Each 8’ plank will make all the parts for one drawer, except for the 1/4” plywood bo...

Hand Tool Journey #14: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 2

05-10-2013 03:17 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Just a quick update.. I see a lot of views but no feedback.. I’m beginning to think this is a stupid idea but, I’m pushing forward anyway. I got the legs rough cut and ready to be mortised into the hinge. I also got the brass curve cut. The geometry of that thing is a bit confusing but I think once the legs are shaped and the mortise is in place for that to go through it will make more sense. Right now the curve doesn’t seem like it will want to go through the same spo...

Tool chest update #3: Decisions, Decisions

06-17-2013 02:37 AM by Dan Krager | 3 comments »

I thought I would like this gull wing design so I spent a lot of time drawing it up. Now that it’s done and can be put next to the Gerstner style box design I created first, I’m just not sure. I lean towards the Gertsner style since that is what style I have already on a tier as my “best box”. The gull wing doors do not add anything but a lot of cool factor. I tried and tried to think of a way to make the traditional Gerstner style side panels with the diagonal hin...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

Church Lectern #2: This is what I was thinking of....

03-26-2008 02:02 PM by pashley | 8 comments »

I did these “sketches” in Bryce to get an idea for proportions. I like what happened here. Problem is, in this sketch, the 4 main posts are 44 inches high, and my real life ones are 33, which is really the best height. However, I made the 3 raised panels to the specs in the drawing – 33” tall by 30” wide – way too big. The thing is way too big, when I tried to visualize it by laying out the posts and panels. Looks like I’ll have to take a good 8 inche...

New saw

08-24-2009 10:26 PM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I just bought a skil 10 in 15 amp table saw from lowes and it will probably be at my house by friday. It comes with a stand and I will do a table saw setup video when I get it. I compared this one to the ryobi and what really stood out was 2 things it has more power and it also has a dust port. This week I have spent about 5 hours total cleaning up the shop and I made a dust port for my miter saw basically what I did was I put a small piece of wood on the back part of th...

12-11-2010 02:34 AM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Design Drawings Completed, For a Music Box Finally finished with the design drawings for a 72 note movement, Music Box. It took me approximately 60 hours to come up with this design. Next is the working drawings, then it’s fun time, the woodworking part. The top marquetry will be a good challenge for me, but I’m really looking forward to it. On the front of the box is a Lyre Harp. Carved out of solid ebony. The foot design is a segmented turning with Maple and 8 Ebony pin st...
