Easy Build Workshop Stool.

39 days ago by David White | 5 comments »

NOTE: A PDF version of this post and the Sketchup model are available in the downloads section of my blog. If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....

The Board, Pt. ll

40 days ago by Gene Howe | 22 comments »

We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...

Demystifying Door Construction

40 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 33 comments »

Constructing passage doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. One of the ideas that I really want to impress on everybody is this: Don’t be intimidated by new projects. When approaching a new project, most of the woodworking actions needed for it, you have done on other projects. By recognizing this, you create the mindset you need to build something that seems intimidating such as a door. I hop...

I’ve veen in the flooring industry by marriage for many years so although I have a fairly good knowledge base on ...

Here is what I am working on at present. Proving to be quite a challenge for me….which is good for me. The show timber is Kowhai |ˈkəʊwʌɪ, ˈkɔːfʌɪ| nouna tree of the pea family, which bears hanging clusters of yellow flowers. It is native to New Zealand and Chile and yields useful timber. Birds like the Tui are attracted to the yellow flowers.Anyway…...have a look and I hope you enjoy it. http://youtu.be/fEQPJGBQwJ8
