Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...
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 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!!!!
