Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

02-07-2012 04:51 AM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Kitchen Island

02-03-2012 01:52 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

One of my on going projects is the kitchen Island… The other day finally got round to plumbing in the dishwasher drain pipe, just need to do the main feed to it. (a friend will do this as he has the crimping tools etc.) Also finally put a shelf in for the microwave oven. Which was bigger than our last one, hence the change around where it went and my other the shelf unit project. The Island has dishwasher, and a bar fridge under it, and then at the far end shelf for the microwave. Look...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182951744/to-the-root-of-things-glowing-pine-root-sculpture I’m hoping to turn these huge hulking remains of trees into some awesome stuff. I will try to keep this blog updated, especially if I get funded and get to launch my project. I really love working with non-traditional materials.

Replacement Speaker Boxes #3: Sanding done

01-20-2012 10:33 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Okay finally happy with the sanding of the actual boxes for the speakers and they are now classed as completed to return to the owner for him to do his part. Problem is they don’t look to different from my last blog… but trust me… they are… :-) As the person that I did these for will put the finish coating on, I don’t believe he has decided yet what he is going to do… I thinkk he wants to stain them… haven’t a clue. Final sanding done̷...

Adirondack chair: part 1

01-16-2012 04:37 PM by Hopman | 4 comments »

Oh boy, i may have bitten off more than i can chew. After a couple easy wine barrel stave candle holders, i decided to give an adirondack chair a shot. With some rough measurements and pictures i found on the web, i took my first stab today. First, i realized this project will use almost an entire barrel. 17 staves i think. It’s going to be HEAVY. First i layed out the staves for each part of the chair. Most of the day was spent putting the chair back together, and then assembling one o...

Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...
