Kitchen Hutch: the build

05-03-2013 08:03 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Afternoon off! Might as well go to the dungeon shop. Looks like Igor even cleaned it up, at least a little bit? Ok layout of the sides. That white paint can cap is a pattern, of sorts. I traced around it, and located the circle about an inch below the bottom shelf area. Measured in from the outside edges about 3”, and used a straightedge to connect the two “dots” . Then just a sabresaw to cut things out. Sawing both sides at a time. Same went fo...

Updates to Shop Activity

10-27-2009 01:22 PM by Critterman | 7 comments »

Hey Everyone, just a catch-up blog to let everyone know I’ve not abandoned my shop completely. There have been some developments both in projects and shop upgrades. First, I’ve posted a couple of projects, one was a music box for a friend who had surgery and the other was a bowl I turned at a Woodcraft class. Both are posted under my projects. Another I did was a picture frame and easel, this I haven’t posted yet as the one I did was a prototype and I plan to make three more for Christmas...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #2: Making the flute

08-08-2014 12:40 AM by icemanhank | 6 comments »

I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.

Derek's Shop #4: Five guys, two pots of coffee, one minute of actual work.

02-02-2009 08:35 PM by Derek Lyons | 3 comments »

How many man hours does it take to lift a table saw two feet from its crate and onto its new base? Roughly five… :) A good weekend, putting two new tools into commission and making huge strides towards being where I’d like to be… As you may have read back in November my Lovely Lady Wife gave me permission to buy a new saw for my birthday/Christmas. While the saw arrived promptly, it turned out the mobile base was out of stock. After consulting with some woodworking ...

Redwood

04-24-2011 05:02 AM by Steve McCracken | 0 comments »

I have three 4×4’s that after much sanding and steel wool applications have been treated to a bath in teak oil. Color me suprised with the outcome. This outdoor project was worth the 2 year wait. I now will use my new plunge Craftsman router to make room for black tubing to add pizzazz to some climbing roses. I had no idea how the teak oil was going to “shine” my redwood. Wow. Color me impressed. Pictures will definitely follow.

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

01-18-2011 11:40 PM by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...
