Hallway seat with drawer storage

1440 days ago by jsquared | 2 comments »

I have undertaken my first solo project without having someone around watching that knows more about making stuff than me – the garage was empty except for me. My wife had requested, about 1 year ago, that I make this bench for the hallway leading to the laundry room that would be a place where we can sit, take off our shoes and have a place to store them. Since I was slow to act, she bought a wicker basket that shoes get thrown in. Finally, I started on this project over Labor day week...

The New Workbench Journey #9: The Finished Product...Almost

1441 days ago by DrJosh | 1 comment »

Well after a long hiatus since my last blog post, I have made a lot of progress. It has been a long, sweltering, uncommonly hot summer here in Nashville, TN with temps in the 100 degree range with heat indexes of 105-110 degrees. Working in an open-air, non-climate controlled garage shop made it almost unhealthy to work on any project for long periods of time. And now that my semester has resumed at the university and my teaching duties are running full-steam ahead, I haven’t had much t...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #7: The box joint drawers

1441 days ago by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Continuing my progress I decided that the box joint, per the plan, was the way to go. Instead of 5 drawers I did four. I had all 5 cut, but figured one extra big drawer would be more useful than 3 smaller, so I used the biscuit joiner to combine one of the two big ones with one of the small. It saved me from buying more wood and gave me more practice with the joiner. I checked around for plans for a box joint jig and decided that the one from (PlansNow) was the better of the ...

Just for Fun... #32: Lots, and very little...

1442 days ago by littlecope | 14 comments »

I’ve gotten very little done on the small table I was working on… But it seems like lots has happened. I woke up a week ago today to the news that there had been a terrific fire over night… and then I saw the address!!! I used to live in this building, here in Manchester…I lived in the second story apartment for almost eight years… The back side of this sprawling old place was where the fire started, we’re told it was an electrical problem…The buildin...

A Lumber Jerk in Paris…Setting up a second workspace What do you do when you are retired from work due to health, your fiancĂ© lives in Paris and you in Copenhagen, and are a real Lumber Jerk? You go shopping in Paris! (On your bicycle!!!)The fact that I spend so much time here (one of four weeks a month), made me want to have some hobby when I’m here, and also to be able to stand good when I can do some work (when my health allow me), I try to draw, and to read, but I m...

There are two projects there already there awaiting their publication along with a couple of articles, but the editors are already finished with them f...
