Well it has been some time that I worked on this table but there are things that have priority when you work for a living .I have installed the outside veneer on both halves of the base and started today with the inside veneer . The iron seemed the biggest obstacle and as I mentioned previously using a heat gun as a alternative got nixed because of the expense involved .I designed a round sheet metal base for the iron using some thin sheet metal with steel wool inside to give it a flex...
The goats are asking “How long could it take to build a simple feeding trough, farmer Pabull?” i had a heck of a time getting the 2×4 joinery to fit nice and snug without over spending a lot of time on it. I used Tidebond III and galv. screws so it would last a bit. It starts to look like something when the plywood goes on. I am not sure if I got the right plywood for this exterior project. I might have to put some extra paint on it to protect it from...
Last Saturday I posed a goblet that I had made from construction grade 1/2inch plywood that was glued up and then turned. It came out better than expected.Today I was trying to turn another complimentary piece from the same products and process.Here are the pics of what happened. I am not sure if my tool caught the wood and caused the break or if the break caused the piece to move and and then catch.In any case, the plywood came apart (not at a glue line) and flew and bounced around the gar...
The other weekend I knocked out a few quick projects. I had made a simple jewelry holder with my daughter previously. It was cheap and easy and she likes it. I came up with the idea of using the track that is used for adjustable shelves instead of ripping thin stock and drilling dozens of holes in it for her earrings. (Which is what the ones she found online that she liked had done.) This was much faster, especially since I don’t have a drill press. It cut easily with a hack saw. As ...
This is a blog of a build of a coffee table that I have been mulling over for about a year and finally started building it as my wife likes the idea so far, I build a some what crude model to give her a better picture then I could draw.!OK this is the basic concept but the final design will be done in the shop and be different then what you see .To start I build a form for the two base arches and I did not take pics of the build but it is simply five identical curved 1/2” plywood ribs o...
I started this project because I saw a really cool contemporary rocking bench on the internet, and wanted to tweak the design a little so it fit my wife’s needs. The original design was a bit low to the ground for our taste. Here is the original design: http://www.designwoo.com/2010/11/d-van-dirk-rocking-chair/ So I thought about how I would do the same chair, only a little higher off the ground. I knew I wanted the grain of the plywood to show vertically as you are looking at the...
This post will show you the way I finish the boards. I will not be painting these yet but I have included a link at the bottom for customization help. I just want to show you how to build the boards and prepare them for paint or stain. The first step in finishing the boards is flush trimming the plywood to the frame. If you don’t have a flush trim bit, you can just sand it down if it’s not too far off. I also like to adjust my flush bit to smooth out the inside of the hole....
I decided to burn through some more of my scrap wood, this time stuff left over from when I built the miter saw/router table station. There was some pretty good sized 1/2” plywood left over cut at odd angles (which was itself scrap from our shelving project). I have been mulling over what to do with this odd sized (about 2’ x 4’) wood and finally hit on an idea: a saw till. For a while now, my master plan has been to get the tools that I use regularly (that is, the h...
Cut the last 4 foot piece three times. Cut two one foot legs first, then measure and cut the top piece. It should be about 22.5” or so. Put the legs in the leg slot. Make sure to leave enough room for the legs to slide in and out even after they are painted. Predrill, countersink and screw two screws per side. These are the legs. I find that it’s best to simply sand down the edges instead of using a round over router bit. I’ll cover sanding and routing i...
