Shot Glass Display Cabinet #1: The beginning...

05-01-2009 07:47 AM by scopemonkey | 3 comments »

A friend at work collects shot glasses from all over the world and wanted a wall-hanging display cabinet to show them off. She asked me to build it for her out of oak to match her kitchen cabinets. Then she told me she has LOTS of glasses—probably 150 or more. We wrestled with some design issues, but decided on adjustable glass shelves rather than a lattice work type of grid for each glass. The case would have to be big and hold a lot of weight, so I decided that the case should be ...

Another simple little box? #3: Lid work

05-04-2016 09:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, sanded down some of the fingers that were sticking up.. After which, I ran a small combo square and a pencil around Trying to land somewhere besides right on a pin. Plane was to saw the lid part from the box’s bottom. Handsaw would be a bit too rough on things, and get into a bind. Bandsaw? A bit hard to do, and see where I was cutting. Yard sale item might just work… I cut one end first, to get the hang of using this heavy saw. Then cut the long side...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1561: New Video Posted on my UTube Channel

05-27-2015 11:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I had mentioned yesterday that I was doing things in several different directions this week. Not only have I been cutting and creating the kits for the Haunted Carousels that have been ordered, but also working on a project for Tole Town, an online painting community.  I love doing projects like this. It doesn't only keep me busy, but it keeps me thinking in lots of directions. It seems that between painting, woodworking and needlework, I always have several ideas on the go and I ...

The Craftsman's Path #63: Sculpted Rocking Chair: More rear Leg Work

10-29-2009 03:33 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I’m back working at the Sculpted Rocking Chair. In my most recent post I continued with processing of the rear legs. This involved making a 20-degree jig for use at the band saw, shaping the areas at the seat joints and also drilling for the headrest. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!

So what's it worth?

05-04-2012 12:10 AM by scrimman | 3 comments »

For the longest time I’ve wondered how to answer that question ‘how much is it?’ How do you judge that? I’ve finally gotten down to the point where I’m going to have to just start being a little OCD and start writing it down. Thus far it’s been working ok; I’ve got a couple of celtic crosses I need to carve for a couple of weddings I’ve been invited to. Being that the wood, this time, was free I can concentrate on what it is I do to it…...

Router table #3: Drawer Fronts and finishing up

10-23-2012 08:18 AM by mitchota | 3 comments »

I think I can honestly say the end is in sight for my router table. I didn’t do much woodworking today, but I was able to cut out my drawer fronts and get everything attached. Since I’m still in the middle of renovating my room, I’m working on finishing up the painting in there too. While I am glad that my projects are coming along, I’d really love for things to be finished up. For some reason, I’m a really big fan of the frameless look. I don’t know if ...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #1: Sketchup Model

10-15-2011 04:13 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like. So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...

Wenge and Sapele bed... made some progress this week

04-01-2014 05:14 AM by Jamie McDonald | 3 comments »

So I finished finishing messing around with the finish. It drove me nuts.Wenge is black…. and like a black car it seems to show all the imperfections. I finally settled on Waterlox Satin finish. It took me as much time messing with the finish as it did constructing the lap jointed frame…. HOWEVER I can say that the headboard is actually finished now. It measures 11 feet long by 34” tall. It hangs on the wall with a 6 foot french cleat and the cleat is screwed to the wall us...

Apiary #7: A video of our wildflower meadows last year, playground for the bees

06-27-2014 12:45 AM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

I’m getting ready to shoot a new video this year with a full garden tour, but I wanted to share this video with the guys following the bee projects I’ve started. This was the back meadow last year, and it looks even more amazing this year. My honeybees are working it so hard that the whole meadow buzzes and you can hear it from the porch now.

First cabinets #3: More progress

06-07-2009 10:54 AM by Mark Gipson | 3 comments »

I’m back in the shop after some time out to visit my wife’s village for a funeral. The cabinet for my workshop has been fully assembled, a stain and finish applied and my planer / thicknesser has been mounted. The jointer cabinet is mounted on 4 small castors and seems very stable in use. I had some problems fixing the top onto the cabinet and mounting the jointer. I hadn’t really thought about access for fixing the top when I put the fixed shelf in place and there re...
