Outdoor Furniture #6: Adirondack Assembly Line Continued

05-24-2012 04:46 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

Today I spent the morning looking for enough wood to finish my Adirondack patio set. I went to two Lowes stores and pretty much cleaned them out of 1×3 Douglas Fir decking boards which is what I’m using for my seat slats and most of my back slats (I use one 1×4 for the middle back slat on the single chairs and 2 1×4s and 1 1×6 on the settee). The actual width of 2 3/8” is perfect and I just have to cut them to length. The problem is that there is never eno...

Speakers

10-16-2009 04:29 AM by bunkie | 0 comments »

I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...

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 ...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #2: Table Top

04-18-2013 08:57 PM by izod | 0 comments »

The weekend of the 16th my dad and uncle came through as we all were heading up to the Twin Cities to hang out with my brother for weekend and take on a Timber wolves game. The timing was pretty much perfect and I had them help me glue up the 3/4” industrial grade particle board. The counter top on the left was glued up at 8’ and the right side was 4’ long, both 30.5” wide . I didn’t use any clamps, just screws about every foot along the sides and then down th...

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...

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...
