Cussing has been about….Marine D.I. first day level….but, we getting a few things done.Top of the posts. Decided to at least do the footboard ones…and work out any “kinks” First off, wanted a bead detail….Stanley 45 was still set up from doing those grooves, changed out the cutters to use a bead cutter about the same width….yep, it was quite sharp…never felt a thing, but there was fresh DNA appearing on the pine. Plan was to do just the o...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Bed Frame, out of Pine #4: Grooves & Dry Fits

05-21-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

The 2×4 rails need all the tenons done, and a groove ploughed… Rail that had the first set of tenons done…Stanley 45 was still set up….fence needed tweaked a bit, to better center the groove…plane was still set tad tad too deep.. Nice thick curls look nice, but the plane is a bear to push…lightened the cut a bit, added a bit of candle wax,,,pushed along much better. Unlike the posts, I can run the plane all the way through.. Then laid out the set ...

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube

Building a Modern Mitered Waterfall Grain Bench

05-20-2018 06:14 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

In this build I’m making a midcentury modern walnut waterfall bench with miter legs, where the grain flows around the miter in a continuous fashion. The bench is 8ft long and 2” thick. I had to get 12 ft long boards to keep the grain continuous, so I got my workout building this one. Watch the video or read about it belowI’m building a mitered modern waterfall benchThe bench is going to be 18” wide when finished and I wanted to limit the number of boards I had to glue up so their won’t be a...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #2: Joinery work, part 1

05-20-2018 04:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, part one….otherwise this episode will be too long of a read….Need to chop/mill/ cuss places for the rails to sit.. Once I knew where the “top and bottom” of the joint was…mitre boxes made the square cuts….then this vintage saw .. Was set to the required depth of cut, and made a lot of cuts… Ever wonder why some chisels are called “Beaters”? Old wide chisel, drive it down, the beat on the side of the handle…to pop all...

Well, for me. this is a Plan. Needed...

Dutchy Excavator Build #1: Tracks...

05-18-2018 08:22 AM by darkmyble | 13 comments »

Hi folks.. I have been challenged to build the Dutchy Excavator. This will really test my skills and equipment to the max. The level of detail and precision is immense. So i thought id tackle the most tedious part first. I spent yesterday afternoon cutting and prepping some Sapele which i’ll use for the track parts. This species of mahogany is lovely and it was a great find amongst the other window frames that are thrown away after being replaced with UPVC. I have access to a loca...
