Workshop #21: ShopQuest 2014 Making Progress!!

182 days ago by clieb91 | 1 comment »

January 5th January 12th So a portion of that wood went into 2 of the 3 office projects that I recently posted. another portion has been sorted out and put in hopefully better more organized spaces. This pic shows wood that literally came with my house. Which means it has been in the rafter for a minimum of 10 years. I pulled all the trim pieces down from around the vent and found 4 pieces of oak that will make a nice picture frame. The rest was pretty much trash. I then use...

Reclaimed Glory #13: From cabinetry cut-offs to Simple box and Cutting board (in progress)

271 days ago by palaswood | 2 comments »

I have a bunch of cut-offs from a local cabinet shop that deals mainly with Cherry but I also get a good amount of Poplar from there. From the medium sized pieces (all 3/4”), I selected some nice poplar front and back, some cherry for the sides and I had one long board of Cherry that had a knot in the middle (so was discarded), and I simply cut the knot out and used each end for the top and bottom. It’s 9×4 x 3” high. I just set them up, and eyeballed it ...

Planed juniper cut offs #1: Attn. Box makers or small board projects????

684 days ago by junipercanyon | 3 comments »

I will have quite a bit of cut off scraps from some nice juniper lumber. It has been dry for about 14yrs. They are planed to about 5/8” thick, and will be anywhere from 6” to 20” long. I was thinking about bundling up packages of and selling them to interested lumberjocks. If interested, please send me a message with ANY reasonable offer that would be worth taking the time to package and ship these out to you. I just cant bring myself to throw the scraps away knowing they co...

My first Cutting board

779 days ago by wlojr | 1 comment »

I have been inspired by many cutting boards, that I have seen on LJ, I used some oak scraps that my father gave me and some walnut scraps I got from a cabinet shops discard bin, I cut the boards with my radial arm saw(no table saw yet) and then glued them up with titebond 3 glue, its the only glue Lowes had that said food safe, after they were good and solid about 2 hours later, I ran them through my planer a few times to get them to a uniform thickness. I then routed them with a roundove...

Workshop #17: ShopQuest 2012- Lost a week

878 days ago by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well due to the fact that I somehow managed to pull my back out at work last week I did not get a lot done in the shop. Could barely make it down the steps most of the week. It is feeling better now and I decided to use some spare time to finish the rearranging in the shop. I managed to get some excess wood thrown out during the last two trash days and found a place for most of the rest of the wood that I had piled up in the alcove. Found my old scrap bin I had built a few years ago at...

Scrap Uses

880 days ago by Roger | 30 comments »

Here’s just a few scraps that have been saved from the firepit. There’s always something you can use a cutoff, or leftover, and whatever for something useful. Maple cutoffs Thin Strips (if the scrap is large enough to be safely cut) Plywood, and 2×4’s make very nice tool holders, etc. for close-at-hand necessities And a turned hold-down knob for, well, holding something down. A good friend o mine gave me this chunk of Pine that used to be a part of a di...

Homemade powertools #2: pen turning lathe prototype

1063 days ago by Sodabowski | 19 comments »

Hey guys! Back from the mountains (alas, too soon). First this quickie blog post about what happens when you order a pen turning mandrel without owning a lathe. Being a cheap skate, and a long-time reuse-recycle-minded guy, I of course built myself a wee lathe with all recycled parts: motor from an old printer (or photocopier, can’t really remember, I dismantled so many of both…), pulleys and timing belt also from reclaimed hardware, so for the bearings (hidden in the block ...
