Marine Corps Naval cannon project #2: The Brass

07-14-2016 03:03 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

I’ve received the brass hardware back from blasting and polishing. Now I can start cutting and laying out pieces for the carriage! I’ve spoken to several retired navy sailors and found out that people would take spent shells and or parts from decommission ships and cast them into other parts. So WM.C. Capehart was probably the person that made the cast pattern and the U.S.S. Vulcan was a repair ship that served beginning in the 1940’s and was scrapped in 2006. Here is the Wi...

Hi folks! So, having broken my faithful mallet, I set out to make a new one out of some hardwood stretchers that I reclaimed from a pallet. View on YouTube

Free Wood #5: Old Dresser Drawers

06-10-2016 12:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

A while ago I saw a chest of drawers on the curb, out for the trash. I didn’t have room for the carcass, but I grabbed the drawers. The drawer fronts were plywood covered with veneer. Unfortunately I didn’t know this until I started planing them down. Pretty much ruined as plywood, I used them to make a bunch of John Heisz style push sticks. One small bonus from these was a few pieces of hardware. I got two mending plates and two corner brackets. All hail ...

Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Free Wood #4: The Pew Report

05-14-2016 11:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

As mentioned previously in this series, I got possession of two old church pews that my church no longer needed. Today I disassembled them and cut the long pieces in half crosswise to fit them in my car. Because of the splits in the wood, I ended up with many 1×4’s and a few 1×6’s. One seat stayed intact, but it has a split. I’ll have to break it anyway to fit through my thickness planer. I cleaned the wood up, taking off any molding so that it would fit ...

Free Wood #3: This Wood Won't Smell

05-13-2016 12:35 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

My church had two pews in the narthex that were starting to fall apart. I had repaired them a few times, but there’s only so much you can do without just taking them apart and restoring them. I was starting to make plans on replacing them with plywood benches, but this week the church got a hold of some reception are chairs for free. So now the pews are spare and I’ve offered to take them away. They are each 12 feet long and made (I think) of maple. I’ll have to c...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…
