Bathroom Remodel #1: Creative Bathroom Remodel

02-05-2010 10:24 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 3 comments »

Well, I was supposed to just replace the old vanity with some cabinets that they got from a friend, because the cabinets they got were in better condition than the ones currently in the house. Seemed pretty straight forward, nothing really difficult or interesting to see here, folks, so move along…..... Oh, wait, nothing fits right, go figure. Yes, their simple switch out turned to a bit more, but they are really enjoying it. I had to put together 3 cabinets, bring them out ...

I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while

Kharma, and my thrift store state of mind......

01-09-2010 09:55 PM by Hooligan__j | 6 comments »

A few weeks ago, I was driving by a local thrift store, when I saw this: I wanted to take a closer look, and so quickly (and extremely legally) I turned around and headed back to the store. I love thrift stores, as they appeal to my innate desire to be a (as my wife so lovingly refers to me) spendthrift penny pinching lout. But anyway, I digress. I drove up to the store, and took a look at the cabinet, and my initial thought (the one that made me very safely, and legally turn around) ...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #6: Adding Upper Storage Cabinets or Walls

01-03-2010 10:18 PM by cmckerliesr | 2 comments »

OK!After my last blog entry, I had a lot of good input on what to do to possibly add some sort of wall covering and to be able to hang upper cabinets. I had made a few comments later on saying what I may try. What is going on now, is first of course I can not hold anything to the inside of the can, while I drive a screw from the out side. So, I have not got this done yet. So I will just tell you what will happen, once I get my son or someone to come help me out. I am going to split a co...

test runs #1: Cabinet door

12-29-2009 05:30 PM by rweitz | 4 comments »

OK so I start a lot of projects but never finish! It just seems to me it takes a lot of thinking and pondering before I come up with what I want to do so I try stuff out micro scale before I take on the whole she-bang. This is my first stile and frame door. I did it on the table saw, but that was before I finished the tuneup so I’m still working on runout and square etc, but I did get a Freud blade 50 tooth general purpose and cleaned off most of the rust. I’m looking to ref...

Jet JSG-6 Restoration #4: New Platen & Pad Installed, I'd Call This Project Done!

12-13-2009 05:48 AM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Well the platen arrived Wednesday and the pad for it arrived Friday so I was able to put ‘er together and she’s good to go. Waiting for the new on/off switch yet, that will arrive Tuesday but if I need to, I can use it. Had it running today to adjust the belt tracking, that was fairly easy. Put a 120 grit belt on for starters so we’ll see and I’ll go from there. I was going to post a before and after of the belt’s cast iron table to show the results of using T...
