Critics stink!

07-20-2011 05:30 AM by Transition | 16 comments »

My garage is an old barn. It is partitioned into three sections: 1) a 20’x20’ on the bottom right, 2) a 10’x20’ on the bottom left with stairs to 3)my shop on the second floor. So last night I was building some shelving on the bottom right. When I finished aroung 10pm, I took a 45min break to grab a bite. When I returned, I started filling the shelves. In the room on the left I heard a rustling noise. I peeked through the connecting door and discovered… a s...

Shelf project complete

02-08-2011 02:54 PM by jbschutz | 0 comments »

Well, the shelves are installed. You can see pictures on my projects page (I couldn’t figure out how to get the pictures in the blog without going to a lot of trouble) The installation was easy, due to pretty careful planning. I had milled the ledger board for each shelf to pretty exact size, so it was just a matter of locating the studs, screwing the ledger strip to the wall, and slipping the shelf cavity over the ledger. A couple of screws through the top to secure it in place ...

Weekend Wall Shelf

01-30-2011 05:49 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 11 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Without a doubt, this is one of those “procrastination projects”. For years, Nicole has been after me to build her a little shelf near our gaming desk. She has a bunch of little collectibles that she wants to display and there’s simply no storage space in that corner of the room. On a monthly basis, she would remind me of this need and even resorted to threats: “You know, Lowe’s has th...

CS1 Kitchen Shelf

09-30-2010 04:51 PM by HalDougherty | 2 comments »

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...

Playroom #2: Let there be more light

01-19-2010 11:45 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

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

Mom's Quilt Rack #2: Test Piece

12-01-2009 06:46 AM by imelmer | 0 comments »

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. ...

Mom's Quilt Rack #1: Plans

11-29-2009 12:32 AM by imelmer | 5 comments »

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 ...

Getting back into woodworking

06-03-2009 06:33 PM by Don Bowers | 2 comments »

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...
