The Mystery Project continues…After the Handles were attached, more details had to be attended to…It needs to be said now, that one of the suggested and agreed upon features of this Project, is that it should have “Bands” around it… Think, Steamer Trunk, sort of…To that end, the Lid’s curve was transcribed on to the Cherry Slab… While at the hardware store, and chosen out of thousands, one of their finest “Thickness Describers” wa...
Got the support rack glued up and weight tested. Watch the video to pick up a few tips and tricks to getting it flat and square. This has been a really fun project so far! Let’s hope it works and can be useful for myself and for others!
Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...
Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site. I have received lots of emails from those of you asking when they would be ready, and they all are at this time. We added several new patterns to the site and we are very proud of them. There are some holiday patterns, as well as some for general occasions. Keith's SLDK396 Self-Framing Love Always plaque pattern would be great for a wedding gift, anniversary, or any time you just w...
A while ago I found an appropriately sized piece of wood along the road to replace a stair tread on our basement stairs (safety police need not apply). Before I had time to seriously consider if I should just chuck it, or re-use it my daughter spirited it up into her room. The tread has about 5 coats of paint on it and I was weighing if I wanted to strip it or chuck it. So she’s asked if I could make a little shelf for her room out of it. Of course I will. I think I̵...
Back door has a nasty looking, white, metal screen door. Seen way better days. Have been told by the BOSS to make a new screen door. Trip to Menards, picked out a few 1×4 x8’ Pine boards (3) a couple 1×6s and a couple 1×8s. Maybe $26+tax? Got things down into the Dungeon Shop to lay stuff out Hmm, might get a little bit crowded down here. Laid out the parts to locate a few joints And somehow managed to open the tool chests, to drag out a few tools ...
I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...
Yesterday I had a little change of plans. While I had intended to finish up the Gothic Bat Pillar Candle holders, I kind of got side tracked and decided to do some more cutting instead. I had not added to my regular candle trays in quite a while – even though I have many more ideas, and when I created the pillar candle holders, I also thought that a similar design would translate to a candle tray as well. So the other morning when I was up early I decided to draw up a designs, as ...
I started working on my sheet good storage system. For a small shop, this is ideal! When you don’t want to use it, you just fold it up and get it out of the way! See the first video in the series on how I made it!
Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...
