My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1510: Making Some Bad Days Better

03-05-2015 01:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

This week has not been one of my favorite weeks of all time. Like everyone else, once in a while we have some crummy days.  Mine had decided to come all at the same time it seems. I was having some 'technical difficulties' on Tuesday, and while I intended to spend the day drawing my new designs, I wound up spending the majority of the day 'fixing things' and putting out fires. (not literally).  I did have a nice evening though when I threw in the towel and spent the ...

New Altar #1: New Catholic Altar

03-05-2015 12:58 PM by Arthouse | 4 comments »

In the heart of the Texas Hill country there is a small German community of Fredericksburg Tx. I attend an old Germanic Gothic style church my great grandfather built and my great Uncle was the Architect circa 1903. The church committee has commissioned me to design and build a new Altar. I am honored and humbled to start this project for my roots go deep into the very fabric of the church foundation. Here is the first of many entry’s in my journey to build the Altar . The first hurdl...

A Shaker Table Project, part #1....Legs

03-05-2015 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, went out to Lowes today, and spent just over a $20 bill. Brought home five boards. Going to try to build a Shaker Table, hopefully with a drawer in it. The wood supply? A 2×4x8’ two 1×6x8’, and a couple 1×8 x~ 3’ I do have some scraps of pine down in the Dungeon Shop, too. Figured out I needed four legs @ 1-1/2×1-1/2×30”, and took the 2×4 down the steps to the Dungeon… Placed to board across both benches. and ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #6: Flattening and starting on the tail vise

03-05-2015 04:02 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Last night I snuck out to the shop to take the clamps from the front top that I glued up earlier that day and used them to glue up two of the legs. I just had to get it done before bed. This morning I just let them sit as I had other stuff to do. I started with flattening the bottom surface of the front top. I had to run it across the jointer in halves like I did with the back top and I thought I did ok but I realized that after running the top surface through the planer, that surface was...

There is different way of holding the pieces with nails bent in places Or with small wood blocks I like to have it lay out...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #7: Remainder of yellow pine lumber for workbench

03-04-2015 06:38 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Here is the remainder of the yellow pine that I need for my workbench. I had decided to give this thing legs and a skirt (hmm, sounds bad I know – hey maybe it’s a Scottish bench? LOL). The 2 X 12 was for the skirts on the front and the back, and the 2 X 8’s were for leg stretchers. I had 6 pieces of center ripped 2 X 10’s left over from making the top that I could use to make the legs. Still deciding whether to make a regular workbench or stay with my original plan of...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #5: . . . and more gluing and planing

03-03-2015 11:44 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

This morning I was out in the shop by 10am, eager to go. Motrin is a wonderful thing. I took the now full width back half out of the clamps and grabbed a glue scraper and went to work. I was able to only get a little bit of the glue runs off, so I switched to my jack plane. I had a bit of an alignment issue with these boards so I had some fairly high spots to flatten out. I did the bare minimum with the plane until I was worn out, it didn’t take long. Then I mustered all of my st...

Level floor for garage workshop #2: A mockup to check the concept and show the "client"

03-03-2015 10:16 PM by jciccare | 0 comments »

My goal was a level floor supported by 2×4 joists. But the concrete floor’s compound slope steepens even more toward the highest (northwest) corner. If I started the joist frame in that corner, the finish floor would start 4.25” off the concrete at the highest point (3.5” joist + 0.75” ply). That would cut into my desired minimum 8’-0” headroom—and I’d pay that 3.5” penalty over the entire 12’ x 28’ shop area, with a st...

Level floor for garage workshop #1: My goal is "plane"

03-03-2015 05:05 PM by jciccare | 1 comment »

I’ve always been a DIY-er on a modest scale, tackling home repairs and small projects within the limits of my ability. No workshop other than sawhorses and a WorkMate, and basic tools to match—a no-frills circular saw, Sawzall, handheld electric drills, levels, wrenches, files, C-clamps. My Ryobi 10” contractor table saw is only thing resembling a “wood shop tool”—I bought it to reconstruct the rotted-out tapered drain floor of a small outside window well...
