Day to day life #10: Busy with spring projects

05-17-2012 11:52 PM by T. D. Reid | 1 comment »

No I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth. I finished the A&C style queen size bed weeks ago and I added the pictures just a few minutes ago. Here are the other items that I have been working on;I have been very busy building a new deck for my grill out the back exit of the house. It was a very quick build (three days) and it turned out really nice. I build two proto type wood swords this week and think that I now have a design for a sword to sell this fall at craft shows that i...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Lower shells complete.

05-17-2012 04:06 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...

X-Men Bunk Bed #4: Test Assembly and Finishing the Ends

05-17-2012 12:04 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 0 comments »

Over the last couple weeks I’ve completed the construction of the side and end rails and cut the slats for supporting the mattresses. I also settled on somewhat novel connection hardware for the rails. Woodcraft sells a very inexpensive bed rail set bracket set that are nonetheless very sturdy and heavy duty. I’ve augmented the connection with a single 10×50mm domino in each rail for added security and support. I cut the slots to exact width in both the rail and the post, so ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #704: Time to Call in the Cavalry!

05-17-2012 10:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

. . . and as I sat there packing up the boxes with the 200 kits that I just finished cutting, an email popped up in my mail box. It appeared to be an order for another 250 kits! I reread it just to be sure. Yes. That is exactly what it was. As I looked around at the filled boxes and tried to digest what I just read, I tried not to be overwhelmed. But I must admit that in that first moment of realization, I did feel a bit like I was in quick sand. After all, these kits were not even o...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #3: Over My Dead Body

05-17-2012 10:19 AM by Jamie Speirs | 11 comments »

Ok, here is the update Shirley found out about the visit Now her words were “Over my dead body your building a bench You can build a Kitchen first” Now I’m not sure of other countries but in Scotland the Over My Dead body is not an Invitation. LoL Last week she wanted a shower instaled. What is wrong with a cloth & basin? Well here is the planed plank, I think it looks great pity there is so little of it. The darker piece at the top ...

Another Dewalt radial arm saw #1: Dewalt radial arm saw

05-16-2012 11:38 PM by OregonWoodRat | 17 comments »

I got this Dewalt radial arm saw from Criagslist for $80.00 Feb 2012. It is an MBC 202, 1/2HP, 9 inch blade. The person I purchased it from had lost the key for the switch and it was in a storage unit so there was no power to run it any way. I took a chance and bought it. After getting it home the first thing I did was to take the keyed switch out. That is when I learned that the keyed part of the switch was a removable attachment to a regular toggle switch. After getting the switch ba...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #703: The Office Helper

05-16-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I woke up this morning to the sound of the birds singing outside. There seems to be a family that decided to build a nest in the tall evergreen tree near the bottom of our steps right off the deck. The cats like that, as there is plenty of activity to entertain them from their window to the world. After pouring my first cup of coffee, I looked outside to see why there was so much activity. There was more than normal, even for the birds and the cats were quite interested in what was goi...

First Blog - New Desk for a College Student

05-16-2012 04:53 AM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

This is my first blog, so be gentle. My nephew is graduating high school in a few weeks and I got inspired to make him a present instead of giving money or buying something cheesy. :-) My inspiration came from a desk I used while staying overnight at a hotel. Below is a pic of the table with my laptop sitting on it. It is approx 22×36 inches with straight legs that have the corners chamfered at 45 deg. After taking a closer look, I thought to myself…I can make that.Here i...

Workbench #18: Thoughts and Changes

05-16-2012 02:25 AM by CartersWhittling | 15 comments »

Hello. Its been 6 months since I finished my bench and I have spent over 1000 hours on it. Now that I have gotten a good feel for how the bench works and its ups and downs I thought I would write an update on it. To start I’ll mention the modifications I made. The first was to add leather to the pads on the hold fasts. With leather I no longer need to place scrap wood between the work pieces and the hold fasts to prevent denting. If you have hold fasts (which you should) I would r...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Gotta start somewhere...

05-15-2012 02:42 PM by Charlie | 23 comments »

My wife and I wanted to reconfigure the kitchen. A gut remodel to the studs. In March 2011 I got laid off from my job at the university. Finances changed, but the kitchen is needed so we’re improvising. We’ll be doing the bulk of the work ourselves, hopefully with help from friends and family at key times. We’re trying to do this as inexpensively as possibly without compromising on what we want to the greatest degree possible. One big rule is that everything going back INTO ...
