Well I’m nearing the end now, i’ve got a lot done in the last two days. not a whole lot physically but the details are really coming along good. i’ll get right into it. first i needed to cut a v groove at the intersection of the tongue and groove. i started by cutting a groove in the intersection area. then i chiseled away the waste to get a rough groove and finished it up with some sandpaper Then after that was done i put in the ebony peg. i will go mo...
So, the woodworking fever has struck me. Unfortunately, it has struck me to make cases for EVERYTHING. Cigarettes, Zippos, Business cards, puzzle boxes, etc… This is my next project, once I have a bit of time. I recently destroyed (Pictures to follow) my iPod 4, 32g. I mean it bent in half. How it is still “working” is a mystery to me, but I can still access everything (as long as I remember the finger movements to find it, considering the screen is in a million piec...
Here it is late August (where DID the summer go?), and when I’ve let the dogs out the past couple of mornings I’ve noticed that it is almost chilly out there. Not cold by any means, & compared with the massive heat we’ve dealt with the past couple of months it is quite pleasant. That doesn’t mean it isn’t cool, and I’ve got one very large project on my punch list for the shop that I’ve decided is going to the Top of the list this week: I̵...
Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
Refinishing ?A few weeks ago I started working on refinishing this old chair of my grandfathers. I have been storing this chair for about six years now and with a break in business only doing a few small jobs at the moment I thought is was the perfect time. Now I will be posting the video on how I sanded the chair in a few days then I will be on to the finishing process. As I stated in my last video I have a few Ideas on what finish I might use but am unsure. Once the chair is all finished I ...
In this episode I show you all of the ins and outs on using hardwood edge banding. I had to pick up a new trim router so once I make the new base I will show that to everyone.
So I was assigned the task of designing and building shelving units for the fireplace at my girlfriends house. I have been sketching prints all day and finally converted them onto my computer. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I plan on using pocket hole joints (using the kreg jig) and filling them in as the units will be painted white and wood/ grain/ joint detail will be covered. The first picture can be considered void because the dimensions are not correct to what I want;...
Now that I have got the new saw pretty much dialed in, I’m ready to tackle the remainder of the power tools and arrange the shop for maximum ease in operation.This is the old saw and out feed table that I started with on my woodworking journey. As you can see, it takes up a lot of space in my cramped shop. With the saw stationed here I just barely could close the door.I recently bought a new Grizzly G0690 cabinet saw and lowered it to meet my requirements for comfort, safety and ease of...
Hello everyone, My wife and I have been designing our office in a way that we hope will fit our needs and server as a guest room for our kids when they come to visit. When we got the news that we are becoming first time grandparents, we quickly changed some of the design a bit and got started on it right away. We drew this up in Skecthup and liked it because it met many of our needs. < The top will accommodate a full size bed so that it is not too big, but can sleep two people ...
