Making a Ceiling Beam #2: Installing the Beam

04-17-2014 03:01 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

As I said previously my beam is made like this, with the bottom piece having tongues on each edge which sit in grooves in the side pieces. So the next thing I did was put grooves in all the side pieces and made rabbets on the bottom pieces, which left the tongues to go into the grooves. The next job was to stain all the pieces: I glued just one side piece to the bottom piece, this would allow me (actually my husband) to wire up the lights easier than trying to do it with a completed bea...

Making a Ceiling Beam #1: Planning and Getting Started

04-15-2014 11:37 PM by ~Julie~ | 6 comments »

Our basement needed new paint and flooring and a few minor renovations. In our large “living room” or “rec room” I wanted to put up a beam with lights in it. Here is what I was dealing with:(Right side below:)(Left side below:) My original plan was to put a wood beam up against the bulkhead (lower) portion that contains some ducting. Because of the two vents in the ceiling, I realized that would be impossible without a lot of tearing out, so I decided to put the ...

Miter Saw Station #3: Complete!

03-23-2014 02:17 PM by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

In part 1 and part 2, I completed frame, saw platform, and drawer. In this final article and video (of three part series), I created the dust shroud. The amount of dust that this contains is incredible! Before, after about 10 cuts, I would be covered in dust. Now I can basically cut until my heart’s content and still be able to breathe. There is a hardwood track so you can slide the Plexiglas out to do miter and bevel cuts or remove it completely for easy cleaning. I really dreaded c...

Miter Saw Station #2: Almost there!

03-23-2014 01:06 AM by bigfoot11 | 0 comments »

In part 1 I completed most of the work to build the frame and saw platform. In this second video (of three part series), I created the saw dust drawer and did some fine tuning. I filmed the final installment this afternoon so once I get the video and article put together, I’ll finish out the project for you guys. The final results really amazed me…especially this being my first real project I’ve shared with the world. Video: here My website with the write-up, more p...

Miter Saw Station #1: Project start

03-19-2014 12:53 AM by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

Aside from the table saw, the miter saw is probably the most versatile tool not only in your shop but on the trucks of carpenters around the world. The Skil miter saw that I own cuts great, keeps aligned properly without much hassle, and is rock solid. The biggest downfall is dust collection….well rather lack thereof. Just cutting out the pieces for one of Jay’s Benches, left the shop covered in a layer of dust. The included bag simply does not catch a lot of the dust nor does the blade’s saf...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1242: A Busy Week Ahead

02-10-2014 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I can’t believe that after getting up on time, it seems I am already running late! (It is just after 8am as I am writing, and so much to do today!) I spent the morning catching up on emails and so forth, as I took a day (partially) away from the computer yesterday to have a little break and accomplish some things. It is a constant batter for me between staying connected and getting actual things done. I find that it can be so easy to spend the entire day ‘visiting’ with ...

Shop Stool Build-Off #2: Design Revision

01-12-2014 02:29 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

I made some alterations, became disgusted with it, and am returning back to the design. The first picture is the current incarnation. I have the foot rest off right now because I am leaning towards something different. I’m also considering redoing the top, making it adjustable and possibly more circular in design. A bigger change is thinning the legs down from 2.25” to 1.5”. Will see where it goes. The second picture was the direction I went in when I was fed-up with the des...

Shop Stool Build-Off #1: Shop Stool Build-Off

01-11-2014 04:43 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

I saw on Chris Wong’s website, Flair Woodworks, an announcement for the Shop Stool Build-Off. And since I don’t currently have a shop stool, I am contemplating doing the build on January 25. I thought if I do this, I want to set an additional rule for myself: I will not buy any wood for this project, and so it must all be made from scraps. The largest scraps I currently have are the plywood leftovers from the Shop Air Cleaner build. This evening I started messing around with SketchUp an...
