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

09-27-2009 06:08 PM 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...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #5: First Band Saw, New Horizons

03-11-2013 01:58 PM by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers, Well Yesterday I finished setup of my first band saw. I started at the low end because that is what my business could afford and I am also learning the ropes. I read lots of reviews for the Ryobi Band saw from Home Depot and after some consideration and education on Band Saw tuning, I went out and bought one… That was Saturday. Turns out the one I picked was busted so after returning and swapping for store credit, traveling to a different store 20 miles away, inspectin...

Board Game Travel Case #2: The exterior walls

08-30-2011 09:18 AM by ChadR | 1 comment »

I got a 8’ 1” x 10” board and cut 2-14” sections and 2-26 1/2” sections. I ripped one of the 26 1/2” boards 3” in to create the top lid. After nailing the pieces together I was about to work on getting proper dimensions for the interior drawers. I decided before finished the day off I would make a test drawer. I created the front, back and both walls. I then decided I would make them box joint together and it worked out very well, since it was my firs...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #2: Understanding the plans

12-19-2014 03:44 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Before starting this project, I wanted to ensure that I fully understood the plans and all the work required. In terms of fully understanding the plans this involved reading and re-reading the article by Darrell Peart in FWW several times. I wanted to ensure I was intimately familiar with all the components, their details, how to make them and how to put them together. As I looked over the plans and went over each part in my mind I realized there were a couple of parts of the plans and ins...

Wall hanging toolcabinet #3: The doors

03-29-2012 12:16 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 1 comment »

Hi LJ´s I finally got the time to work with the doors to my cabinet. My first idea was to make panel doors but I do want the surface on the inside of the doors to be as clean as possible, without joints. i also want to use the full thickness of the plywood, 18 mm, to be able to hang tools on the inside. I decided to make a compromise, the look of panel doors on the outside and the sturdiness of using a clean plywood surface on the inside. to be continued … Thank you...

Changing Table Build.. #2: Now time for something completely different..

05-15-2013 05:56 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

OK, so the original plan has hit some bumps and our DR has moved our due date up to this Sunday so we need a changing table and we need one yesterday. I was at HD this morning picking up a small piece of plywood to fix a glider footstool with and I saw in their bargain bin some “Espresso” particle board shelves which are the same color as our crib and this gave me some ideas. I grabbed 5 of those and some culled lumber and today it will somehow become a changing table that wil...

Searching for time in the shop

04-21-2012 08:07 PM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building. I stained everything this week as well as putting on the coat of glaze and then a coat of wipe on poly. Today I put about four hour into assembling the head and foot boards...
