Woodworking For Therapy #13: Cold Weather Has Some Challenges When Your Sick

147 days ago by Steve Kreins | 5 comments »

Cold weather certainly doesn’t help when most of your cutting, sanding and routing has to be done under the patio cover. I know that most of my Buddies on LJs are in worse weather regions than I am, but still, brrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Cold weather also complicates disabilities. The aches and pains are a little worse, some have to stay warm because of medicines or treatments and generally when you have a disability such as cancer, your immune system is compromised. SO PLEASE, BE CAREFUL, I P...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1767 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

A new shop in the making #2: Ever closer to a plan we can use

2273 days ago by Bob #2 | 8 comments »

I had to teach myself a bit of sketch-up to get his plan off the ground thanks to the felllas that chipped in to make the learning curve a bit shorter.I’m no good at sketchup but I have managed to get a drawing (stick frame) that represents what I want to do with the shop. This version of the shop comes about after trying to get the city here to approve my use of about 4 feet of their property. -No luck. So we will build the shed at 18 feet wide and add a lean to to the side on the ...

Leg Vise, Shop made #1: How many times can you remake something?

305 days ago by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

Originally i was going to include my adventures in vise making, into my blog about my new work bench. But the farther along i got and the more mistakes i made, the more i realized it should be separated. Here was my goal:1. build a leg vise that is extremely strong and worked well.2. Not to spend a fortune (ie +$300 for the BenchCraft kind)3. Try out some new ideas – could i use regular threaded rod? – is there a better way to make the stop on the bottom part of the ...

First Box #2: Decisions, Decisions

1713 days ago by Bret | 3 comments »

Now, a few days and lots of pictures of other people’s boxes later, and I’ve settled on making the box predominately from curly maple, with mitered corners featuring double walnut keys. The top will have a frame of matching curly maple around some figured wood or veneer. I expect it to be around 12” x 7.5” x 5”, though the stock I have would allow it to be up to 6” tall less whatever board width I lose to milling. The sides will be 1/2” thick. ...

Pie Safe #1: A beginning

585 days ago by scamp238 | 5 comments »

My daughter and I are building a pie safe. Well, my daughter is building and i am supervising. She doesn’t seem to have much fear of the tools, so that is good. I have helped her with setting up the machines and giving advice, but she basically has done it all. She is 17 years old and a senior in high school. Anyway, here are a few pictures of what we have done so far. The design is roughly what is found in the 1988 Woodsmith magazine. I am pretty pleased with the results so far. ...

Arts & Crafts - Living room tables #1: The plans

1069 days ago by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

Found a set of plans at Rockler for a three piece Arts & Crafts living room table set. Bought the materials for the coffee table – around $200. Bought enough materials for the coffee table to start. My 16 year old son did the mortise/tenons and all the cuts. We did staining together. Want to put on a mosaic tile top. We prefer staining prior to assembly.
