Makeup case #1: Building a case to hold wife/daughter's make up

07-29-2016 04:49 AM by slydog | 0 comments »

I never really thought about building something to hold my wife’s makeup “stuff” until I saw her digging through cases and drawers to get to the implements and concoctions. I had some scraps and so created a basic box structure to hold (what I thought) were those items. As we know the first rendition of a new idea isn’t the greatest, so I’ll just skip over that part and move on to what the current project is – the next version. The basic idea I found ...

Horsing Around (A Sawhorse Project) #1: A moment of ingenuity followed by stupidity

07-29-2016 04:21 AM by YusukeKomiya | 2 comments »

I wanted to chisel out a tenon since I didn’t have any good saws for ripcuts (though I do have one for crosscuts). After I made a crosscut for the shoulders I was trying to figure out how to proceed without a vise (on another note if anyone has recommendations for a good vise under $100 I’m all ears). Here’s my makeshift leg vise (or post vise maybe?). Everything looking good so far. So I insert the 1st leg (from previous photo) and everything fits. Now on to the ...

New Shop! #11: Finished (Years Later)

07-29-2016 02:24 AM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

Let me first apologize to those of you who were following my shop build back in 2012 – I forgot to post the finished product! I suppose my incomplete blog is the result of a combination of excitement with my new shop and just being busy with woodworking, school, and life in general. I know that if I was following a build and they failed to post the complete shop, I’d be a little ticked off! Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the shop. I will beg...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1751: On the Sixth Day of Christmas . . .

07-27-2016 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As most of you are going through probably the hottest time of the year, I am here in Nova Scotia humming Christmas carols to myself and working on Christmas ornaments. Things are going just as I planned. Many of you know that I have been working on a year-long project of creating no less than six sets of Lynne Andrew's "12 Days of Christmas" ornaments (you can purchase the pattern book here: Christmas Blessings Pattern Book – or come and join our Facebook page dedicat...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #4: Time to make some sawdust

07-27-2016 01:30 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I don’t have any 8/4 or 12/4 to make the legs and side aprons. Online 12/4 X36 square blanks are very expensive ($40 on Rockler) plus most of them are glued up. So I decided to make them from existing 6/4 and 4/4 stock. When the changes were made, I needed roughly 20 BF of 4/4 and 20 BF of 6/4 cherry for the legs, side aprons, various stretchers, as well as the drawer fronts and the back rail. I also needed some 5/4 square walnut spindles and some 4/4 square walnut spindles. The 4/...

Entertainment Center #2: Cabinent #3 Carcass

07-25-2016 08:03 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Downstairs entertainment center project proceeding fairly well though the shop is still a cluttered mess of in process projects and storage (typical move something to move something to be able to work story, though things are improving). I cut and assembled carcass for cabinet #3. Though I have a mistake to fix ;-) Original Project Sketches I’m not a Sketch-up user for my woodworking projects. Guess I’m still old school. I prefer a quad pad and pencil or a white board durin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1750: Making Do

07-25-2016 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Having limited means can completely shut some people down. For others, it serves as a challenge – not only to meet, but often to be completely conquered. For them, having less doesn't mean giving up, but trying harder and often coming out of the situation even better than expected. It can be surprising what one can accomplish with a bit of determination. I grew up with limited means. My parents were divorced when I was very young (at a time when 'divorce' was neither co...

Big Rig by T& J #2: Wheels and glue up

Wheels are done. I glued up the sleeper and engine block. Used purpleheart and pine. The block has the firewall attached.The purpleheart bleed into the pine. I will use tape to cover the purpleheart and lightly sand the pine to clean it up. Was this from the resins? That is it for this weekend back to work in the morning.
