Castle Bookcase #2: First Cuts

340 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today, I transferred all my measurements from the plans to the 1/2” ACX plywood (4’x4’ sheets) I bought last week. Whipped out the Versacut and sliced and diced till i had the sides, top, bottom shelf, main shelf inner support and toy front cut out. I also decided to lose the lop shelf and shrink the height from 42” to 36” to better fit the space i have to work with in Kylie’s room. Also decided to cut down the large book space (20” is way too b...

Castle Bookcase #1: Design

340 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

In the spirit of keeping up to date, I’ve decided to post the blog entires for my recent castle bookcase project. My daughter, Kylie is two now and long overdue for a bookcase to house not only her growing collection of books but also the books my son no longer reads (he is four now and is starting to learn to read books that have chapters). The pile on the floor is just not cutting it any more. When she was an infant the five or six books we read to her were easy to store on top o...

Workshop #1: Benchtop for new workbench

363 days ago by Jason W. Fudge | 2 comments »

I decided that I wanted another workbench. I already have the wood workbench from HF that I picked up on sale for about 100 bucks a few years ago. That was a great purchase. But I have outgrown it and now need a larger one. Given that I’m in the military and will probably be moving in a few years I have been thinking about how I wanted to make the base. I came up with a simple, yet effective solution. Use my heavy duty storage racks. Later I might add cabinets, but for now, just t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1075: "Electric" Skeletons - Work in Progress

380 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

For the past several weeks I have been working on Christmas ornaments, now I need to finish some Halloween projects. Do you ever wonder why I don’t know what time of year it is? I really don’t mind though, as I just seem to displace the holidays and celebrate any of them at any given time. It doesn’t bother me in the least. The magazines work are funny that way. While I projects for the holiday issue were due several weeks ago, the issue following the holiday one wi...

Craigslist V8 Workbench #2: Day 2 - 3.5 hours

403 days ago by getlostinwood | 2 comments »

Seems like a lot of work for not much to say. I got the wagon vises roughed in and the second side of the bench top glued up. The vises were a challenge mainly because my vises aren’t as tall (thick) as the original design. Here is the wagon vises in mock up, I built the back wedge portion to original design height, I did this in order to make sure I got the slope right. I’ll trim them down as I do the final fit.Here is a quick mock up of how the top and vises will set up. ...

Craigslist V8 Workbench #1: Day 1 - 3 hours

405 days ago by getlostinwood | 1 comment »

I was inspired by Shipwrights V8 work bench. In particular the lack of purchased parts, vises being the biggest expense. Short of a couple bolts, screws, and nails everything is shop made. With laminated plywood as the building block it occurred to me that there is an ability to gather a significant amount of plywood on Craigslist for little to nothing. I wanted to set some guidelines that would make it possible for pretty much anyone to create a good to great bench for less than $100. 1) Rec...

Scroll saw Blade storage

432 days ago by CFrye | 8 comments »

While at Mom’s the other day I salvaged an empty pill bottle (fish oil, it’s BIG) thinking “This might be big enough to put scroll saw blades in.” Brought it home and today, while waiting for finish to dry… I tried it out and with some scrap 1/8th inch plywood made the holder. Nothing fancy. I didn’t even sand it. I made a ‘collar’ that will keep the blade ends in the center of the bottle so as to not interfere with the lid and labled it with th...
