To Rebuild Or Not To Rebuild #1: A Totaled Challenge

02-20-2012 06:41 PM by boxcarmarty | 15 comments »

Here is a challenge most of us face at one time or another. I have a Craftsman bench top sander that gets a lot of use in my shop. Well, it did until here recently when it met the concrete. Yep, I didn’t have it fastened down in order to keep it portable on my work bench. By the time I realized that it was on the edge, it was too late. I wasn’t about to try to catch a running power tool, so all I could do is step back and watch it plunge to its death. Ok, maybe it’s n...

Small Bathroom Shelf w/ Reclaimed wood

02-15-2012 03:54 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

Recently built this small bathroom storage shelf. The wood was some laminated pine boards that were used for a bookcase that fell apart, the person gave me the boards for free and I used them for this shelf. Very simple construction that relied on screws because I did not have the time to use traditional joinery. The finish was Minwax Helsmans satin. The dimensions were 36” tall, 15” wide and 7” deep.

Dafting table

02-10-2012 03:09 AM by DonR | 1 comment »

a week ago I won a Hamilton Drafting table in a surplus auction from my local university, since then I have been sanding my hands off to re finish it. The biggest challenge has been the drawing surface. it had been used in a machine shop and had many straight line cuts in it as well as a number of pits and chips from machined metal parts. I have now done three applications of joint compound to fill these cuts and dips and am happy with the surface. I have sanded it down to a 320 grit and will...

Strip Canoe #2: Stripping Is Done!

02-02-2012 10:58 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 13 comments »

I have the stripping done. So, I thought I’d share some pics. The pics get better. I promise. I had a difficult time making the transition from vertical to horizontal across the stem. It felt to me like the stem form was getting in the way. When I referred back to Mr. Gilpatrick’s book He stated that this may happen and if so do some trimming. There we go! The transition was still a bit of a bear. Three hands and plenty of screws required...
