log [drying] racks #2: finished!

1774 days ago by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I got the last 2 of the 5 sections built last week, sans the corrugated roofing. Here’s how I did it, at warp speed: This marked the first use of my new truck, for 2×4s and small ply panels from Home Depot. What a joy! As an aside, when I cut this particular 2×4 to length… ...I made a new friend. I think it’s a fat bird. As another side, whenever I stack up cut 2×4s like this, I get a terrific urge to build a deck, or workbench: ...

Challenge 04: Concept for a larger project

2192 days ago by ThreeJs | 3 comments »

I designed this simple proof of concept project for my house. My ultimate goal, (when I get the time, money, and tools) is to replace this: My current shop would be hard pressed to complete even this first project, but I think we will get there eventually. So here is the concept shelf. It is a wall hanging model, that when built will probably not go on the wall shown above, but will hang in the room, and hold some of our collections. I designed these shelves with Cherry and...

Kitchens #4: Hardware

2563 days ago by dennis mitchell | 7 comments »

Now this kitchen is just taking up space in my shop. Everything is sprayed. The drawers are all in. I’ll wait on hanging the doors till I’ve installed the kitchen. This has been fun. I’ve just been installing for way to long. Nice to get back in the shop.The new mats seemed to have helped quite a bit. I can put in my full four hour day with out any complaint. I’m looking forward to building more in the shop. I’ve got two small jobs backed up. I wonder when I̵...

003: under [garage] door shelving cabinet #4: cabinet doors work begins

1774 days ago by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

For the doors, I had a look through my stock piles, and this board, a 1/4”x8”x4’ tulip poplar plank – picked up at Home Depot months ago simply because it was so unusually pretty – really spoke to me. The picture makes things a lot more yellow than they are in real life. It’s loaded with purples (which will probably fade in time to brown), browns, greens, yellows, and lots of gradients. From those dimensions, I built a Sketchup model of the doors ove...

Setting Up Shop #4: My Paradise

352 days ago by Rex B | 7 comments »

I moved into my house last May, and I think I can finally say that my shop is pretty well set up. For me, the perfect shop is one in which every tool has its own reserved place. That way I can put my tools up every day and easily find them the next time I need them. I guess you can say I’m a bit of a neat freak, but that’s just the way I am! I like to make custom hangers for a lot of my tools. They can be a good way to kill a little time in the shop between larger projects, and...

Boys Bedroom (cape cod) #1: Where I am so far

41 days ago by Questtut | 1 comment »

So, it is time for my boys to get their own room. They are getting too big for their cribs, and I need to finish that spare bedroom for them so they can have their own space. We have a small cape cod home, originally 4 bedrooms when we moved in, but we made it 3, creating a master bedroom downstairs by combining the 2 smaller rooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, shaped like a plus symbol, and a small half bath (currently unusable as well). The bath will be a project for another day...

2558 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 19 comments »

My Walnut board was 6 3/4” wide, but it was dished a little, so I ripped it in half, & joined it in 4 sections for the top, I also glued some Ash to the edges. The Top clamped up.Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop. This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps

005: scrap cutoff shelves #3: still filling them up

1502 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

My new scrap cutoffs shelves are handy for odds and ends, too, like the little roll of brown paper that’s always in my way, rolled-up foam sheeting, some jointed and planed 2×2s I use as straight bars during panel glue-ups, and a few sets of rails for my router bridge setup. You know… all the narrower stuff under 2’ long. I also finally emptied the two boxes of exotic turning blanks (on sale still!) that I got quite a long time ago. It’s very easy to forget...

"Warehouse" Shelving #1: Introduction

1328 days ago by Trimble | 2 comments »

Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #6: Something's Finally Built!

1356 days ago by CyBorge | 4 comments »

The shelving unit is in service! I ended up using 1/2” plywood all around instead of vertical 2×4’s. I also decided not to depend on the garage walls for primary support, so it can be moved if desired, though I did screw it to a plywood strip that was pre-mounted on the wall. Even though the unit is strong enough on its own, that simple action added a ton of rigidity. Here’s what it looks like, all full of hastily loaded junk, but keep in mind the paint is actually ...
