Bookcase submission for Challenge 04

04-21-2008 05:49 AM by Brass | 1 comment »

The following is my entry into the bookcase design contest. Several weeks ago a potential client approached me with an unusual problem. She wanted a bookcase for her new condo. Not unusual except that it needed to be wall mounted, could have NO back, and needed to match the color of her current cabinents. That’s correct, wall mounted with no backing, an open bookcase. Apparently, several other contractors looked at it and told her it was impossible or made excuses as to what coul...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #1: Demolition

01-15-2014 09:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

At least five years ago I cleaned out an old garrison garage at the family home, took out a center wall and made a 25×25 ft shop. It looked great. Really nice. Everything in it’s place, drafting table, bulletin board, Dry erase marker board. All my power tools on one side where the dust collector was and an assembly area on the other side. I made a ‘new fangled bench’ which to this day is a nice bench. The original shop form back then can be seen at my workshop page..Th...

Boy Scout paddle project

05-02-2012 02:35 AM by bladedust | 2 comments »

I’m pretty new to LJ and not much of a woodworker. Not that I don’t love it, I do but I’m still learning so I need help from you guys. I’m heading up a Boy Scout high adventure trip for my son’s troop this summer. I’ve got 24 Scouts going canoing in Quetico for 7 days and as part of the adventure, they’re building their own bent shaft paddles. We pretty much have the building process down and are well on the way of making them, but the finish is...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

Sanding

07-30-2009 08:53 PM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I have pretty much spent 5 hours sanding today. Usually I sand for about hour and a half and take a 30 minute break then go back out. I have already had to clean out the filter on the shop vac before I get started again and I was just asking does anybody know if the brand shop vac make bags to put in your shop vac because this thing clogges up and it takes 10 minutes to clean out the paper filter

Delta Contractor Style Table Saw Storage Cabinet #2: Starting all over again

05-26-2013 12:39 AM by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Changed the entire plan now. Decided to put the support legs back under the wing on the right side. I thought it had enough support with the rails of the fence but I didn’t think about the tipping point. So for stabilization purposes I put the legs back on. With legs back in place, it reduced the total width available for the cabinet by 5” so now it’s back to the drawing board. I did go ahead and cut the two sides and the top and bottom today and assembled them. Now ...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #3: Cutting the tail slot

10-11-2011 04:21 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

On the first one of these I made, I cut the slot at the rear (for holding the tail) on the band saw. But that was because I didn’t have a table saw that I liked to use. So, I decided to try the slot on the table saw. The tail and all wing pieces will be out of 1/4” thick material. I have a Freud thin kerf blade installed, which cuts about a 3/32” wide kerf, and didn’t want to bother installing my dado blade. Two passes of the thin kerf is less than 1/4”. I ...

This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago. My Dad Decided to take all of the limbs off of the tree and possibly have it milled into lumber. Is there anyone out there that can give me advice on how to choose a saw mill? How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...
