Coffee table #2: A new normal...making lemonade

7 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

Life has thrown some pretty nasty hardballs at us this past year and a bit and my kids and I are starting to recover. We we’re sitting in our rec room (do people still call ‘em that? :-) and my daughter said it would be nice to have a coffee table in front of the TV. I’d been trying really hard to think of something we could all do together so I half jokingly said why don’t we build one. Lauren and Paul jumped on the idea. We got out the tape measure and use...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #1: Project Description / First Status

7 days ago by elbarneso | 2 comments »

I plan to use this blog to track my progress on a number of furniture pieces going in our dining/foyer area for our home that we purchased about 1 year ago. Our old home did not have a separate dining room, so we had no furniture to go in this room. I decided to build my own pieces to fill this space, as I have been doing a lot of woodworking over the past year and feel that confident (enough) that I have the skills, time, and vision to complete this. Here is a list of the pieces in the set a...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #23: Kiosko phase 1

7 days ago by PhilBello | 2 comments »

Last night the timber finally arrived As soon as I can get, or make the broken part for my table saw I will be underway, I have a lead on that locally, so may have some idea later today, in the mean time, I need to sort out the timbers and number them, so I know what is for where, otherwise I know I will end up cutting the wrong piece! Some of the timber posts are for another project, I will probably complete first to give me more room on the kiosko, and that is to erect posts and p...

Tool Box #2, the lid has begun

8 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Went through the inventory the other night. Not much left from that old bed frame. One side rail was PLYWOOD and soaked. Maybe next time. The other rail was something….different. Looked almost like a glue-lam board….LOT of plys. Well, maybe a rip here, a cross cut there, and I can build a frame? Ripped the board right down the middle. Cut one section to about 33” give or take a hair. Jointed the sawn edge. The othe section was crosscut to just over 13&...

Tool Box #2: case work

9 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Getting my tools ready #16: Re-purposing a shop bench to a woodworkers bench

9 days ago by DocSavage45 | 23 comments »

Been awhile since my last post: Randy aka Blackie asked that I show my rehabbed/recycled Hybrid woodworking bench. Please feel free to share your thoughts, advise and humor. It is appreciated. So here it is! Looked and listened to some really good woodworkers here on LJ’s like Paul aka Shipwright, and Kiefer. Have to give credit to Paul Sellers and his YouTube video of constructing a woodworkers bench and a more recent one regarding adding bench dogs to your existing bench. A...

Toddlers Workbench Build #2: Glue ups are more adventurous with a youngin' involved..

10 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Just a quick update today. The boy and I got outside for a quick (that was the plan anyway) glue up session for his top. I knew it was going to interesting but I went about it anyway and yep… once the glue was out of the bottle the hands went into the glue so he got banished to his chair till the actual glueing bit was done. Then a few clamps later we wait. In case anyone is worried that he doesn’t own any shirts I’ll just say it is hot as balls in my sh...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #22: Now for the serious stuff!

11 days ago by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I have been full of good intentions, but something always seems to crop up to stop the bigger projects getting under way, however I think I am clear to get started on rebuilding the kiosko / gazebo. It was my intention to get under way last week, but we had to have a couple of Mango trees removed, one at the front and another at the back of the house, for fruit trees they were big, taller than the house, and that was a worry, because I didn’t want any damage done to the house whilst fel...
