End Grain Floor #21: Sea Gulls

12-05-2012 03:03 PM by Nate Meadows | 43 comments »

It has been so long since my last blog and I want to thank all of you for your patience! Life has a way of getting in the way of our plans. There is that saying, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” Well I was planning on getting to the Sea Gulls much sooner than this but…well you know. So I have finally started. I think I have already told you there will be three; all at different sizes, representing different heights. This will hopefully give the viewer...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #20: Final Top Prep and Tool Tray Assembly

02-04-2013 03:45 AM by Mauricio | 42 comments »

Ok folks we have some momentum going here and have made some real progress lately. We’re getting close to the end. So the idea is, flatten the top, glue and bolt on the tool tray, then plane to tray to be coplanar with the top. First I chamfer the dog holes, I do this again after flattening. I figure I want to avoid spelching when planning the top by chamfering them beforehand. I’m not ashamed to say I used a routah (Norm accent) Patched a couple of holes from when this top wa...

Watch Box #8: Finished

02-03-2012 04:43 PM by Andy | 42 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

Ouch! That Smarts, I mean it still Smarts!!!! Even though I had surgery on Monday, my fingers still hurts like helk. Surgery was successful, they had a hard time waking me up, I have sleep apnea, so they were shaking me and hollering at me to wake up every 5 minutes. So I was in Post Op a little longer than normal but thats OK. I eventually got home and had some coffee and I was good to go. Today I get to see the Dr’s handywork, I have not seen my hand since my wife changed the dressing...

A really tough client this time!

01-03-2009 11:49 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Well I think I met my match! My current wife, ( I”m considering trading her in), always says I never build anything for her, or as she would say US. (yeah right). A while back our projection screen television committed suicide. So we bought a flat screen model that hangs on the wall. Of course all the “stuff” that used to sit on top of the previous T.V. cabinet was demoted to sitting on the floor. Thus, the need for a cabinet to sit below the new unit, and house the...

I want to give credit to several people who have inspired me, challenged me, and gave me visual tutorials to correct my mistakes. Mark Hillard, Bob, The Grizzman, Andy Halewood aka Andyboy, Benji Reyes,and Peter aka Woodbridge, Charles Neil, Mark S The Wood Whisperer, and Marc Adams. Mark Hillard presented me with an observation that” maybe I would rather work on my tools then build a furniture piece. First, I got angry, because he busted me out, and then we discussed building thi...
