01-12-2011 10:15 AM by optimusprime | 3 comments »

just decided to start a blog on the adventure of creating a work vehicle that any carpenter would be proud to call his/her own. I’ve got a thousand ideas running through my mind however, i felt that maybe i shouldn’t rush into it but get some advice from people of a like nature. O.K. my project is going to be specific to a 1997 dodge ram 2500 cargo van. if anyone has any cool ideas or pics of stuff they have done to their vans please get them out. Now do not be bashfull, iR...

Hand Tool Journey #32: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #6..Metal Fabbin it Up in Here..

04-29-2014 11:31 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

So yesterday we left off with a clean and reassembled mitre box with a few missing accompaniments. I was also left with a broken drill press (piss.. damn you HF!!!!!!).. Anyhoo.. the drill press saga will come into play in a bit but first I needed to draw up some plans for the missing tree from a photo provided by a fellow LJ. I blew it up on my computer screen till it was scale to my ruler and started mapping it out on some graph paper ending up with this.. Now…. I he...

Stackable Bookcase

04-03-2008 05:00 AM by oakdust | 5 comments »

I attempted to design more than a bookcase I was trying for a piece of universal furniture. My plan is to build two identical book cases that can be used alone, stacked or incorporated with a desk top. This design would be great for small apartments or school dorms.The curved frames are made using bent wood lamination, and the side panels from ¾’ Hardwood veneer plywood which would add strength and stability to the design. To give the cabinets a look of fine furniture I would use box joint...

Episode 40 tablesaw setup part 1

09-03-2009 12:25 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

TV Stand #2: Making the front face frame... Next Step..... Ideas Welcomed

08-09-2011 01:05 AM by Angela | 3 comments »

If anyone has a suggestion or idea, please feel free to add a comment. As I said I’m sort of making it up as I go along. If took me a while to decide on how to secure the face frame. As I mentioned before I received this idea from re-assembling my parents TV stand. Once thing I was surprise to notice when I disassembled theirs, was how little glue was used. I believe their TV cabinet was from Ethan Allen. I contemplated using a tenon joint, and then I settled on dowels. After thin...

Kill the Treble #14: The Radio Silence

05-12-2012 02:50 PM by thebenchroom | 0 comments »

The month of April has been a busy one to say the least. My “Real Daytime Job” has been very greedy with my time, and I’ve not had much of a chance to work with my bass. Once again the world of luthiery has thrown a curve ball. My first attempt was plagued with imperfections in profile, shapes/curves, wood selection and presence. Knowing myself as well as I hope, I cannot cope with the “It’ll have to do” attitude. One of the biggest eye sores was the shape of the top horn. Not long after my...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #46: Scrollgirl's Gone Batty!!!

07-19-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is great to feel as if I really accomplished something. Although I didn’t finish everything on my laundry list of things to do yesterday, I got to most everything I wanted to done and at the end of the day I made the choice to call it an evening and just chill. I felt satisfied that I did enough for the day and wanted to sit back and enjoy the moment. I played some scrabble, watched a show or two and went to bed kind of early because I wanted to be refreshed and well-rested when I...

First Cutting Board #1: Initial Design

11-08-2010 11:33 PM by Szczuldo | 5 comments »

Well, I have other projects that I “need” to do first but since I just bought a new saw (Grizzly G0715P, review to come after this weekend), i figure this should give me enough practice. I will be using some oak flooring I have left over from a room renovation and some walnut I purchased. Below is the proposed design. I want to keep it simple. As I have it here it is 330 mm x 465 mm x 38.1mm. Final planing will drop the height down of course. Therein lies the problem area. I do...
