Graham Nash Music Stand #2: Taking Shape

08-07-2011 05:59 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

This is the laminated adjustable section after the clamps came off: It gets run through the planer and its pretty much done: These are the two halves of the main lower section of the stand. The insides are routed out to receive the adjustable post which will slide inside the lower section. I removed most of the inside on the router table. Then I finished it by using a palm router with bottom clearing bit until the slots were the perfect size. Checking the fit with the two...

Graham Nash Music Stand #1: Claro Walnut Slab with a Story

08-05-2011 07:11 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

One of my relatives has a connection with musician Graham Nash. And although I have never actually met Nash, somehow I ended up with a beautiful slab of Claro Walnut from his old hot tub. Well, my dad is a guitarist and fan of all things Rock n’ Roll. And I have been planning to build him a music stand for several years now. So I figured since this piece of memorabilia fell into my lap, it was the perfect time to build him one. Here is the slab in the back of my truck: Its ...

Re-use, Renew, Recycle #1: Stereo/Entertainment Centre Stand

06-08-2011 09:52 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

A little over 25 years ago I made a Stereo Racking Stand for my 80’s stereo separates. Its still in use today Its made of Pine veneered chipboard with softwood legs. A little while ago I scored a vintage Bang and Olufsen 80’s music centre (perched on top of the stand) from our local Freecycle ( web site where unwanted goods are placed, up for grabs, for FREE). Why? you may be asking yourselves. Well for it’s day it was top of the range. With remote control which all b...

Scroll sawing #2: Good News! I sold my old saw!

06-06-2011 02:54 AM by swamps42 | 7 comments »

I managed to sell my old scroll saw the same day Guy Pal put the down payment on the new saw. It’s a cheap Harbor Freight saw, but it comes with a decent supply of blades, the original box, the paperwork, and a sturdy stand. I good friend of mine pounced on it when I offered it to him at $45. This money will go directly into guy pal’s pocket to start paying off my new saw. I was going to put it on Craigslist for 50, but I do still have lots of fond feelings toward this saw. I made...

Beads Box #9: Stringee

01-06-2011 07:26 AM by PurpLev | 6 comments »

Yes I know, I posted the beads box as a complete project: But since I didn’t hear no fat lady sing I have not yet come to a halt. Now is the fun part – the small add ons. First on the list was the wire drawer, or the strings drawer. My plan was to house 2 rolls of wires in a drawer, and pass the wires through the draw front so that the wires can be pulled and cut to length without the need to open the drawer at all. I was also thinking about implementing a blade in the drawe...

organization #2: a simple, rolling, scrap wood, scrap wood holder

05-13-2010 10:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

Just before starting the new job, I decided to clean up one little area in front of my garage and log racks. I used some 2×4s from that Mexican restaurant that closed down, and pine slats from crates from a restaurant next door to that which was receiving kitchen appliance deliveries at the time (both scores – junky as they may be – here). The wheels were rescued from the simple 2×4 hand truck I made awhile ago, which broke (last 2 pics) from dragging too many huge logs ...

Scroll Saw Stand #2: I finished the stand

03-09-2010 06:59 AM by David Craig | 4 comments »

Quick little project and it didn’t take long. Two items I wish I would have spent a little more time planning out before committing myself to cutting action…. 1. I got in a hurry on one of the stretchers and didn’t predrill the hole. So I had a little bit of blowout when driving the screw. 2. I changed my mind on the positioning after I drill a couple holes to house the base. Ummmm, next time I should probably think about that before putting a drill in my hand. Mino...

Scroll Saw Stand #1: Building materials and stand top

03-06-2010 06:18 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

The trash man giveth and the trash man taketh away…. That would seem to sum up most of my woodworking experiences so far :) At any rate, I pulled the trigger on a new Dewalt scroll saw. I have been using a cheaper model for some time and I made do but wanted to work with something a little nicer and get those compound cuts and fretwork moving. I have been using my bench for awhile, but wanted a dedicated stand for this one. I downloaded a free plan from Wood awhile back and was going...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #7: Truant

02-22-2010 05:11 PM by CaptainSkully | 11 comments »

Well, it looks like I won’t have the money for Darrell’s class at William Ng’s school this weekend (or Disneyland either for that matter). I’m pretty bummed. I had to do the right thing and spend my tuition on sailing instructor seminars to further my “real” career. Luckily, the woodworking classes are offered often (I’ve got them all on the calendar), and Mickey will always be there. I may just have to bite the bullet and plunge back into the s...

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #4: installing the drawers

02-06-2010 03:22 PM by Gary Fixler | 15 comments »

When I last left off, I showed the dovetail slides, but they didn’t have a good way yet of attaching to the drawers, and weren’t in the drawer carcase yet. That reminds me. Here’s the carcase installed: I cut a piece of scrap ply to fit on the top and tacked it on with small, set nails – lots of ‘em :) And now for another rambling video on how I finished up the drawer slides: This was the glue-up on the drawer blocks: Adding walnut pegs thro...
