Back Burner projects

04-14-2009 04:43 AM by Demowen | 1 comment »

Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...

Morris style glider #2: The cut list

09-17-2014 09:08 PM by Orange008 | 4 comments »

I am getting anxious to start on this project. I have the cut list (below) all ready. Unfortunately the lumber yard I am purchasing the material from is only open on the weekdays during my work hours. I finally have a Thursday/Friday off next week, so off to the lumber supplier! I would love to do this in walnut, but cost drives me to white or red oak. I may decide that this is a once in a lifetime piece and end up with walnut.

Router Table Insert - Done!

10-15-2009 05:33 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Here it is: And the view of the router from the bottom: You can see the clamp and depth adjustment knob are easily accessible, but if I wanted I could use a T-wrench to adjust the depth from the top of the table. I’m not too concerned about that, since with this Ryobi you need to release that clamp so you have to duck down under the table anyway. So, it works, well enough at least for what I need it to. I’m planning on using it to rout out the dadoes for the rai...

Outdoor Furniture #7: Some Assembly Required...

05-25-2012 06:32 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I spent today assembling two chairs and the settee from the parts that I had cut yesterday. I was really in the grove today. Even more neighbors stopped by to check out the chairs. One of them asked so many questions, that I suspect he is on the board of my HOA and was trying to find out if I was operating a furniture building business out of my garage. I’m really happy with how chair #2 & #3 turned out. They are so identical, that even I have a hard time telling which one I ...

Board Game Travel Case #5: Back to the drawing board, again.

09-03-2011 09:58 AM by ChadR | 5 comments »

Well I had to go back and re design the case once again. I got a comment from Mark Shymanski asking if the boards to these games fit in the case. I of course went and got my board games to test the fit out and realized that a few of them where a bit larger then the case. I had originally designed the case to have enough space between the closed drawers and the sliding front to fit large boards. But in the process of making the case I forgot about this detail. I decided I would go back and ...

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

03-05-2014 12:19 PM 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...

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...

ELECTRIC ANGLE SETTING TOOL

03-27-2012 12:37 AM by Metrotek | 6 comments »

Greetings to all; I am attaching scans of a tool that I once made my version of, for setting the table saw blade square to the table. It’s electric running on batteries with a led to indicate. You set it with a steel square on a flat surface; when both pointed probes are touching the blade, the light lights up. They work great and I’m making one after I finished my ersatz Biesmeyer fence. You can get the little battery holders at Radio Shack or simiar.Check out the drawings a...
