Easy DIY Wooden Kitchen Countertop

05-15-2015 08:27 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Redoing little parts of our house, we decided to do an ebony stained wooden counter top. After removing the counter, the pieces were cut individually. They were all glued on. A 1 1/2”x3/4” piece of pine was nailed to the front edge of the counter to give it a thicker look. Stain was then applied after some sanding and filling in any gaps or holes. When the stain was dried approximately 6 coats of poly were applied and let cured before anything was placed on top. View on YouTube

Basement to a REAL Basement Shop #1: Should have taken more pictures.

03-22-2015 01:17 PM by JAY Made | 1 comment »

I should have taken pictures of the basement before I got to this point. I never thought about it before I started, it was very dark and cramped. It’s hard to believe I worked in it for years in the state it was in. The only picture I could find is when I got my bandsaw it kind of shows how dark and cramped it was (you will have to take my word for how bad the basement was.) To the left of the band saw was a old chimney that was no longer used. The floors were uneven and some ...

shop remodel #1: Shop remodel 3/10

03-12-2015 12:16 AM by Woodpecker23 | 1 comment »

So this is actually the second posting about the same blog but like it mentioned in the first blog, this I actually the first blog on as a member of this site so I didn’t know how the series thing work…I think I have it figured out. So…as I talked about in the first blog I was unsure of the route I wanted to take, either do my shop remodel to update my small shop and make it more of a workable comfortable space but since I am lacking the funds to do it all in one time I w...

Shop Remodel #2: Making use of new space - shop layout

09-27-2014 03:29 AM by Rick M. | 10 comments »

My shop is 16×20 which sounds like a decent size except only about half is usable for woodworking, the other half is storage, lumber, etc. Here is how I started the week. This is where I’m at. This is where I think I want to be. Anything outside the shop (except A/C) are things I don’t have a place for. Anything in dashed lines doesn’t exist yet but I might build. The red line is where I have electric, eventually it will run to the back half but at the ...

Shop Remodel #1: Removing workbench 2, nails are tougher than they look

09-25-2014 10:09 PM by Rick M. | 4 comments »

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I’m tearing out some unneeded workbenches and remodeling my shop.http://lumberjocks.com/wormil/blog/42571 As a refresher, here is where this started with my lathe in the way. In the upper right corner you can kinda see the awesome marking gauge made for me by Hammerthumb. It’s a beast and has it’s own special little shelf. So I tore out one bench and put my lathe against the wall (pics in blog linked above). Now it’s t...

Shop renovation

03-03-2013 03:14 AM by iminmyshop | 8 comments »

I retired about 1 1/2 years ago and planned to spend much more time in my shop. Until then, I’d spend 10 minutes here and 30 minutes there on a project as I could. Redoing my kitchen was exactly a two year project to the day. Finding time to fix up the shop itself was not in the cards so I never even thought about it. In the winter I “preheated” the shop by leaving the door to the house open until it was at least a balmy 50 degrees or so then used a little tiny space heat...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Getting Started

05-05-2011 02:35 PM by AnthonyC | 7 comments »

Well it is finally starting: my job has relaxed a bit in workload, I have the tools, a design, and some of the raw materials. Time to build an entire kitchen! The home is an older, but not historic farmhouse colonial (~1970’s construction). Kitchen is about 15’ x 20’ and opens up to the family room, since I blew out the wall separating them. Style:We purchased a John Boos oval butcher block island as a centerpiece. The style will be a traditional colonial (simple, ...

Shop (Garage) Redo #2: The great migration

05-21-2010 02:32 AM by PASs | 1 comment »

It’s been a couple of days off, and I’ve forgotten what I did earlier in the week that I haven’t already blathered on about, so this evening I’ll just talk about this afternoon.Got home, shifted into the uniform of the evening, BDU pants with all sorts of stuff stuck on them from previous projects, ACU boots ‘cause they are comfortable and have steel toes, and a T-shirt my daughter-in-law gave me a few years ago that finally crawled to the top of the t-shirt draw...
