Staircase/Pantry Remodel...

11-06-2014 07:02 PM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

The pantry in our bush house needed some remodeling. The “staircase” inside was really more of a ladder. My wife uses it everyday to go to the loft and hang laundry to dry and has had some close calls when trying to come down. So we did a remodel and built a more legitimate staircase, which also meant moving all of my solar equipment. All the lumber used was from trees I cut down and slabbed. Hopefully this staircase will prove to be more safe (at least after I make a handrail.) ...

Stairs for Our New Haus #1: Sketchup first - the Plan

07-11-2011 03:16 PM by schroeder | 1 comment »

My wife and I built out new house last year and I decided that I would make the stairs. I am a fan of Greene and Greene and admire the Hall Bros. work on staircases so I designed the stairs in the “GnG” style. It’s going to be a big project to work on in evenings and spare time, but I have more time than money – so that works out.The stock is all air dried Black Walnut with Mountain Mahogany accents. Rails run from 1” to 3 1/2 “ thick – I designed the paneling for the wall, but...

Stairs where there were no stairs

10-17-2010 10:39 PM by PetePW | 4 comments »

Bought a house with no front entrance… I was tired of people walking through my garage (AKA Shop) to get in the house. After a little Auto-CAD and alot of elbow grease, these are the fruits of my labour.

Twin Over Twin Bunk Beds #1: Background/Sketchup Model

08-25-2010 04:57 AM by nurvreck | 4 comments »

Okay, so about a month or two ago my wife started looking online for bunk beds for out two older boys. The only problem with this is that she was willing to shell out a descent amount of money for something that seemed like a good project for me to work on. I let her do her research and find one she likes. She found one at roomstogo.com for around $1200 not including mattresses! I kept poking at her at the fact that I’m SURE I could build one for less than that and follow the same desig...

Let them think you're a little crazy!

11-29-2007 12:51 AM by Popintraining | 8 comments »

This is Pops’ advice That pain in arse customers can be a downer! I know first hand. I’ve been working for them for the last 25 years. Sometimes you just can’t tell until it’s too late, Other times you know there going to be a pain and you need the money so you just have to grin and bare it. Not all have been bad though, I’ve worked for some very good people too. Love everything you do and money on the spot, but I have a dozen or so stories from some of these ...

What a fantastic idea and first class all the way! It’s so amazing to me what technology and the internet has enabled us to do.I’ve always enjoyed reading magazine articles about other craftsman and seeing the different things they created. (This is so much better)It blows my mind that Tony over there in Finland is checking out our bar or if I ever felt the urge too make a guitar or something I have no clue about, I know where to go! (what a trip!)Looking forward to having some fun! P....

Bar Tops

11-26-2007 04:39 AM by Popintraining | 6 comments »

I’m finding out the hard way, that in order to become a good finisher I need to be an even better refinisher!This has been a long road. I started out using a brush-on spar varnish and quickly realized that there had to be a better way. Now, there is nothing wrong with a brush-on finish except that a bar top is highly visible area and can show a lot of imperfections. Spray-on finishes are always going to give you the best finish. I’ve recently purchased a kremlin sprayer and love i...

Home reno #1: Oak Stairs

06-10-2007 03:52 AM by scottb | 16 comments »

What a week for new experiences and big projects. While my nights were spent toiling on the Thorsen Table… and trying new things, the day job had me wrapping my mind around several new things as well. The last basement dad and I refinished (sub contracting for Owens Corning) included perhaps the pinnacle of woodworking projects – redoing the stairs. Ripping off the 2×8 treads and replacing those with oak, adding oak risers, newel post, railing and 52 spindles. T...
