Chainsaw Box Project Planning via Sketchup #2: The Finished Product - Chainsaw Box Sketchup and Planning to Execution
Well here it is, the “Chainsaw Box” nearly completed. It’s rock solid and lightweight! The maple cross members and interlocking design are the keys to its strength. It’s lightweight enough for me to carry by the handles fully loaded! No wheels needed. The finished project turned out failry close to the sketchup plan (see #1 in this blog series). IMO, doing the planning up front in Sketchup resulted in a better made project. Its stronger, looks better, and wasted far...

Well, here is my entry for the bookcase challenge. It’s meant to be constructed using standard frame and panel construction using solid wood, exceptfor the back which would be plywood. I have never seen a bookcase on wheels before, so that dictated the smaller size. Too heavy and itwouldn’t roll very easily on carpet. The advantages to a bookcase on wheels is the ability to move itfrom room to room or around the room without having to empty it. The reason for it opening ...
It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The exci...
Did you ever have a day where everything just falls into place and things turn out the way they are supposed to? I love those days. It isn’t that the other days are a disaster or anything, but looking back I can honestly say that it was definitely a good one. Not only did I accomplish what I set out to do, but unexpectedly, I liked the result much better than I thought I would. After writing yesterday morning, I set out to fine tune the patterns for the two Christmas candy dishes...
I just updated my shop in the new house! Please, have a look and tell me what you think… http://lumberjocks.com/RandyMarine/workshop
I must admit it isn’t one of my strong points. For as long as I remember, I really don’t like doing numbers. I suppose that I get by well enough. After all, I have made it through over half a century and done OK. But being a small business owner and watching the business grow means that it is no longer optional to stay on top of the figures and keep track of things along the way. After all, how can I make intelligent business decisions if I don’t have full and accurate...
well i have alot of finishing stuff. i am also getting a lot into the spraying so the chance arose to get my own little finishing booth in the corner of my attic right near 2 windows so of course i jumped on the opertunity. just to give you a perspective. after i cleaned out my finishing cabinet here was my stuff. and my table saw is 4 foot 3 inches by 27 inches so this is where i will cover the construction of the table. its not fine woodworking but my woodworking passion really c...
Two of the videos I posted here I go back and watch over and over because of the insperation they give me, hope you find them that way as well. I am posting two links, one not related to this Blog but worth posting for wood workers about a company that builds furniture with the most intricate joinery I have ever come across. The second is the link to a video on WoodTrek about the bench I mention in the video. Pat 4 should be read in week or two. http://woodtreks.com/design-build-tr...
