Building a Modern Mitered Waterfall Grain Bench

05-20-2018 06:14 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

In this build I’m making a midcentury modern walnut waterfall bench with miter legs, where the grain flows around the miter in a continuous fashion. The bench is 8ft long and 2” thick. I had to get 12 ft long boards to keep the grain continuous, so I got my workout building this one. Watch the video or read about it belowI’m building a mitered modern waterfall benchThe bench is going to be 18” wide when finished and I wanted to limit the number of boards I had to glue up so their won’t be a...

New Peterbuilt truck #3: Wheels and tires

04-30-2018 04:49 PM by HotRod1 | 8 comments »

I am still working on getting the bugs out of the suspension, so I thought I would make the tires and wheels. I thought I would try making my own this time. Since this is going to be a heavy hauler, I chose to make super singles. I have seen several fantastic ways to make tires and wheels on this site, but thought I might try another way. I cut out (5) 2 3/4” walnut blanks with a hole saw for each tire, sanded the rough edges down and made a tire. Then put a 1/4” bolt through t...

A few years back, picked an old plough plane at a Garage sale.. Wasn’t much to look at…needed a few things done….was in a hurry, needed a way to make grooves besides a electric router….Tried to fix it up….never did hold a setting..wedges were too worn..the one I made for the cutter was a hair too small….cutter was made from a 1/4” chisel…..was ploughing grooves to build a screen door…plane was having issues…...finally, it was ju...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Shop Notes #15: Four Done, Three . . . for Later

04-03-2018 03:59 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

The weather cleared last week, and I was pleased to be able to field four completed cabinets at the spring opening of a local winery. Sales weren’t terribly brisk, but March is normally completely dead. Any sales at all are an improvement. Of the cabinets I completed, three were in walnut, the other in sapele. I finished this first cabinet in amber shellac. I have a lot to learn yet about this finish, I’ve looked at a few videos for guidance, and they tend to show an app...

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...
