Joan's Work Area Shelves.

09-23-2017 11:31 PM by Just_Chuck | 6 comments »

I’m building my wife a shelf system for her carving corner in the garage. Carcass is 3/4” sanded plywood and will hang by a french cleat on the wall. I finished the glue up on the carcass and surprisingly it’s mostly square. The Home Depot plywood had some unique warp to it but I got everything cut square and the glue and clamping pulled it into shape. It’ll be about 60”tall and 30” wide – I’ll hang it off the floor about 14- 16” –...

Making a table, on a balcony. #3: Gluing the top, with some makeshift clamps

09-22-2017 09:25 AM by shaunmza | 0 comments »

One of the ways I justified making a table to my wife was that I could make it cheaper! Or is that how I convinced myself… meh, whatever. Now I can count, knowing full well that I would have to buy tools JUST to be able to cut the wood, it’s obvious that if I took all the money spent on tools, that it is going to be a verrry expensive table! So let’s ignore money spent on tools! Problem solved Or so you would think, thing is I am quite tight fisted and hate spending...

Making a table, on a balcony. #2: End of day 1, planks cut to length.

09-21-2017 04:48 PM by shaunmza | 1 comment »

I ended up having to go back and buy another length of the the planks and the wood for the legs. No workbench, so we make do with what we have! 2 stools support the wood as I measure, mark and get ready to saw. Rough idea of how it will look, I bought the cheapest of the cheap planks, and will be using a hand plane to knock down the edges a bit until they match up. Another photo, because I can! This was in day 1, my back was shouting at me like crazy! With no bench, mu...

Making a table, on a balcony. #1: Getting started, the plan and the wood.

09-21-2017 04:42 PM by shaunmza | 2 comments »

I enjoy making stuff. I think it is the creative process of having something in your mind, then taking action and bit by bit, seeing it come to life. As a teenager I shied away from wood, as it was to me a very unforgiving medium, if you don’t cut very straight it’s there for you to see, every time you look at it.Steel on the other hand, was more forgiving, as I could weld up holes. I used a bead of welding to cover up my inability to cut in and straight more than once! ...

A project in Maple #2: Hey, glue ups!

09-21-2017 01:28 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, was much better. Even remembered to turn the shop light and the fan on! Goal was to get at least the front assembly glued up, and a start on the back assembly.. Last two mortises were chopped…did a few fittings with the rest of the parts. There was another panel glued up….took it out of the clamps, and used the two completed raised panels to mark out for size…..blank was an inch shorter than I wanted…..decided a wider center stile would work….set...

A project in Maple #1: start ups

09-21-2017 01:02 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still had a stack of Maple “scraps” sitting around, needed a project to use them up on…...maybe a small blanket chest? Let’s see… This is most of the wood supply….I also went and bought a 1×4 x 8’ Maple plank, as I might need a few pieces to cover ..oops items…. I had this glued up panel from Charles Neil….and there was a 5/4 slab in the stack.. It did have a crack that finally gave way. Not sure why it was stained, eith...

Shop stuff #104: Deck build Pt 1

09-19-2017 05:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I posted the video of the mobile home skirting on my You Tube channel but did not put it here at Lumberjocks as I didn’t think it was very relevant to wood working. But I did the skirting because I (well, the wife actually) wanted to build a small deck. Much easier to put the skirting on first, so that determined the order of operations. I missed taking a lot of footage but this is a very condensed version of the build. There will be at least another part, maybe 2. It was a big lon...
