Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #2: Well okay, not exactly FINE woodworking... Painted Trellis for Joseph's Coat rose bush.

04-02-2010 04:48 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

This is a project in progress actually. A very simple project in progress. The idea is simple. Build a simple 4’x8’ frame from PT stock that I can in turn attach a 4’x8’ trellis to. The entire assembly is to be painted to match the house, and attached to the side yard fence to give something for a newly planted Josephs Coat rose bush to climb. The trellis is painted in the creamy beige trim color of the house, and the frame (pending build) will be painted the burnt ...

My Router Cabinet Upgrade #1: What it looks like and what I want to accomplish

02-06-2011 07:04 AM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Years ago I built a large cabinet to hold my (then) new Jet table saw. The preliminary design of the cabinet was to give a long enough extension for the fence as well as eventually provide me with a router table. As with most projects, it took a while, but I eventually found a Freud router that would work with what I wanted, so I got the router, a router table plate from Rockler, and the template to match the place, and installed it. The cabinet was very raw in it’s design, thoug...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #885: Cutting Today (finally!)

11-24-2012 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Finally, I think I will have some time at the saw today. I used to think that if I could make designing projects my full time job, then I would be able to make things and work on them all day every day. While sometimes that is true, I never really understood how much time the other components of having a successful business entail and I find that just like everyone else, I long for those hours when I am actually creating. There are many tasks that need to be done when running a small busi...

The Journey began

02-05-2013 06:30 PM by wncguy | 3 comments »

Over a year ago I stumbled on this site & lurked for a while before having the guts to even join. My wonderful wife “suggested” I get involved in something (anything?) that would interest me & occupy my time – read stay out of my hair now that you don’t have the store anymore. I probably over thought everything as it related to equipment, but now have Ridgid 4512 TS, Rikon 10-325 BS & Ridgid EB4424 oscillating sander as my major equipment purchases. I...

Wenge and Gaboon Floor Inlay - Ready for the first cut!

07-16-2014 04:31 AM by Mymyripzip | 3 comments »

Recently we embarked on a challenging request from a prestigious client to create a dining room table border that measures 12’ x 16’ x 1’ entirely out of wenge and Gaboon ebony. The border will go into a newly -installed floor of hand-distressed (and bleached!) American walnut. My son is the craftsman and I’m moral support, and R&D so to speak. I’ve veen in the flooring industry by marriage for many years so although I have a fairly good knowledge base on ...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #9: Doors and drawer finished at last

11-07-2014 05:43 AM by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

I have been slacking with updates. Here are some pics of the doors and drawer fronts. I ordered them from Evans Cabinet and Door in Brenham, Tx. They are some nice folks to deal with. Prices are competitive and the work is great. Last of the hardware installed. My sweetie had a special request for the utensil drawer. She showed me a pic on the internet and said “I want one like this in my kitchen”. I said OK. :-)Here is my version of it. It turned out nice...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #3: Side Pieces Cut - Shelves & Dividers

05-16-2009 03:04 AM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

Yesterday I cut the side verticals of both the left and right cabinets. I then matched them up as to what sides I wanted for the inside and outside of each cabinet and routed 1/4×3/8 rabbits on each piece for the backs. Then I cut all of the dividers and shelves to width and length. Since I am making some alterations to the plans to accommodate my antique doors I wanted to see how things were going to look. These cabinets are too narrow to use a double door and too wide for jus...

A journey into the workshop. #21: Bye bye chicken legs!

10-10-2009 02:45 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Well they came! Sears item 22219 Wide Table Leg Kit for Craftsman model 22811 table saws. Now to refresh the memory of those that don’t recall, the 22811 was a Ryobi BT3000 table saw, with a Craftsman label on the front, and a different hand wheel. The leg kit is a functional match for the no longer available Ryobi accessory for my BT3100. I do say functional as the leg kit is NOT a cosmetic match, as the BT3100 stand legs splay instead of take a trip straight down, and the paint ...
