Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...
Got a bunch of little wood scrap blocks, some planks, rope, and hooks? I found this online: More pics.
Well it seems the little battery powered lights I orginally put in the playhouse just are not enough. So I needed to add some additional light. I needed something my daughter could turn off easily. So we found a lamp on clearance and got rid of the (H.M.) shade and bought something a little nicer. A simple shelf bolted next to her loft with a place for some books, some Liquid Nail to attach the lamp and some extension chain added to the original in order to allow her to turn it on from the lo...
Well, I’m almost done. I finally had time to finish putting the pine sample piece together 2 weeks ago. This weekend I focused on the final product in oak. I have everything cut and drilled for the pocket holes. I put it together for now and I’ll start working on the sanding and finish work later this week. Parts Back view with pocket holes Front view with brackets and pocket holes No sanding or finish yet
Since I haven’t done much woodwork since high school other than Pinewood Derby and making pens, I decided to make a test piece. I picked up some pine and after the boards were planed, I did the basic layout. I still have a lot of work to do, but I have the pieces cut out. I was debating how to do the jointery, but I decided to try pocket screws and glue. Maybe I’ll get a couple of pics when I get the holes drilled. For now, here are some pics of the work so far. ...
I’m making a quilt rack for my mother. She didn’t want anything specif other than a wall mounted shelf with room to hang and display 2 quilts, so I just found some projects others have made and will be adding my own style. Hopefully she will like it. This is a very basic project, but I’ve wanted to learn more about how to use SketchUp, so I took the time to draw up some plans. I haven’t decided if I’ll be using pine or oak. If it turns out well, I might ...
Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome to lumberjocks! I’m anticipating tremendous growth in my woodworking skills as a result of “rubbing elbows” with you fine people. I’ve been a graphic artist and illustrator for 12 years now. Until recently, my work and family have captured the majority of my time and I have had little to spare for woodworking projects. But now things are opening up and I have two projects I’ve given myself. 1) My wife wants a pair o...
I saw this FWW Complete Illustrator Guide to Woodworking, and while I found most of the book to be mediocre (although a nice reference book when you’re starting woodworking) I did pick up a couple of cool ideas from it… then again, it might have been from a different book…lol so I finally mounted my (until now just laying there) hand planes in the cabinet. The shelves are shaped to the profile of each handplane for full support, the shelf has a small ‘step’ (1...
Well while I am waiting for the glass for my wifes display case, I am working on designing my daughters shelf for her room. She has a ton of webkinz, and she also has some glass dolls that were my wife’s. The dog is able to get on her bed and pull down the webkinz(bad very bad..eheh) so I am tasked with designing a shelf system that will help even out the density of the toys. Right now they are all piled on top of each other and fall down all the time(also making them an easy target for...
