Router Cabinet Redo #3: Base & shelf

02-28-2017 06:02 PM by edwood1975 | 2 comments »

The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...

Corn Hole Game

02-16-2017 02:07 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 0 comments »

Hi! Took a break from the kids table and chairs as suggested by some great people. On to a donation item for my sled hockey team. Hopefully we can do a raffle or something with it. :) The one thing I really struggled with is the 6 inch hole. I cut it out with a jigsaw and then sanded to the line. I wanted to go over it with a roundover bit… when I did it made it lopsided and bad! I’m not sure how I’m gonna fix that, lol. The good thing is, I have a wrap to put on it!! ...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

Honey locust bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Third Project - Table and Chairs

02-03-2017 05:03 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 2 comments »

Thanks to DanK for checking in on me from time to time. Its been a slowwwww project but I’m happy to say it is near completion! I’m pretty sure almost a year. Admittedly I believe I took on more than my skill could handle but WOW did I learn A LOT. My collaborator (the mom of the kids I built it all for) has yet to paint the table and legs but I’m assured she will by tomorrow. The kids have seen it and they are absolutely excited! :) Giants fans may recognize some co...

Musical Instruments #7: The Resonators and completion

01-29-2017 02:56 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I put the final tune on the resonators. This took a little while and a lot of miles. Temperature plays a lot in the tune of this instrument. We have had an unusually cool winter I kept the resonators in the house and carried each to the shop sanded a little then walked back in the house checked the tune then repeated. This kept the tube close to room temperature but required about 3 trips per for each resonator time 37 is a lot of trips. Everything is within 3 cents so were good to go. ...
