New Wood Shop

06-15-2012 12:08 PM by GuyK | 22 comments »

As always the number one tool for any woodworker is the space he or she use’s for his/her wood shop. I have been blessed with a wonderful space to use and wanted to share it with all my LJ friends. This shop was actual started in December of 2011 ( the month I retired from my other career ) and I am now just getting it where it needs to be. The photos taken are after a open house I held at the farm to show off the shop and discuss woodworking with some local craftsmen. N...

The Maloof Library Series #12: Just a shoe bench

06-15-2012 11:38 AM by ScottMorrison | 6 comments »

Hi everyone, Here’s a Maloof Inspired Shoe Bench built a while back, but the templates and instruction booklet are now available. This one was built from Bubinga, which made it a bit heavier than normal, but will probably outlast my grandkids. Quite a fun little project, especially my favorite part….the handles. Enjoy!

In the home stretch

06-14-2012 02:06 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

Quick picture update for anyone following this father’s day gift builds. I put the bottom of the bench together this morning before Tom and I went to the pool for the afternoon. Tomorrow I need to put the braces on the legs as well as put the back on it. I should have time because my wife is going to a concert with her friend so it will be just Tom and I tomorrow night. I have it sanded already to 150 grit and only need to hand sand it 220 to remove the pigtails before I spray it with spar va...

Drum/Disc Sander #2: Sander design is complete, construction has begun

06-11-2012 05:54 PM by Kevin May | 2 comments »

Two months in, progress has been made, but of course, not as fast as I would of liked. Figuring out the motors and drives has been the most difficult part of this project. I have been trying to keep the out of pocket cost as low as I could, and provide the power and control that a sander project of this magnitude needs. I had ordered a 2hp 1ph motor on ebay, but that fell through when the motor was damaged by UPS. Since then, what I stumbled upon was a motor controller that uses 220v ...

Decorative Oak Barrel Bottom #1: Decorative Oak Barrel Bottom For Patio Bar

06-11-2012 02:16 AM by WizardryofMozz | 0 comments »

While at work on a commercial job, we were removing some large modular cabinets and millwork. Many of these work perfectly as a bar, and so I decided to keep one for myself. Last summer my wife and I began to mosaic the front and sides with ceramic tiles and celtic knot work. While researching designs for the bar-top, she came across a decorative wall hanger; an oak barrel bottom with the Harps Lager logo embossed on it. These were available for sale on the interwebs ($90) and were obvious...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

Outdoor Furniture #9: Finally Finished!

05-28-2012 03:47 AM by Retsof | 7 comments »

It took me nine days from start to finish, but I’m finally done with my Adirondack Patio Set. I am really tired of painting too! The chairs are sitting by the pool where they and I will be spending Memorial Day. Hunter and Huckleberry, my English Springer Spaniels, approve. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to format my photos so the right 1/3 of the picture doesn’t get cut off when I link them in my blog? If not, I guess I’ll have to make sure all the im...

I decided to add a coffee table to my set with some of my extra lumber. The kids and I spent the day sanding and priming all the furniture. Tomorrow is painting day! Can’t wait to see them in my backyard by Sunday evening.
