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 got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin bu...
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...
In the last post, I described the inputs and outputs to the system but left the main guts for this post. First, lets define a couple features which we should try to build into the black box: The shop vac should turn on when a tool turns on – this is a simple one but its the base functionality to which we build off of. Provide the ability to run small loads off the system without turning on the DC. Provide the ability to connect multiple tools to the system, all which can indepe...
hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...
Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...
