Charging Station - No more worries

10-18-2009 11:20 PM by cbMerlin | 12 comments »

I read one too many stories about over-heating batteries during re-charging. Went out to the shop the other day and realized I forgot to take a battery off the charger. It was extremely warm! I didn’t want to burn down the house, not to mention the cost of replacing batteries, so I made this station. I found the timer switch on e-bay for about half the price of a local purchase. I had everything else left over from other projects so my total (new) investment was under $15. Had the rece...

Building a MAME Arcade Cabinet

07-31-2008 03:42 AM by Greg Wurst | 36 comments »

MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) allows you to play old arcade games on your PC. While playing them with a keyboard and mouse is OK, to really get the experience you need an arcade cabinet. I could spend some time on just the PC setup, but I’m going to just concentrate on the cabinet construction here. I built this back in 2003 over the course of a week. If you’re interested in more info on MAME and where to get needed hardware you can check the project page here: ...

Shop Tricks and Tips

11-20-2007 12:19 PM by GaryK | 84 comments »

I thought I would start a blog for shop tricks and tips. We all learn things just as a matter of course. Why not share some of your favorites. Here’s one I learned a long time ago. I just used it a little while ago and that’s what got this going. Suppose you have a piece you are cutting to length for a perfect fit. Not thight not loose but perfect.Say a piece of trim for something. Well, if you are like me you cut it a little long and nibble away at ituntil it’s per...

A very large walnut and walnut burl credenza (PIX)

06-19-2008 12:56 AM by John Fry | 21 comments »

This very large, commissioned credenza was designed as an entertainment center to sit below a big, wall mounted, plasma TV. It is 76” wide 24-1/2” deep, and 34” tall. The cabinet and base are all solid walnut and the doors are bookmatched walnut burl veneers both inside and out. But first I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last blog; A glass top table with opposing arches And as always, I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. The mai...

A cutting board

02-23-2008 08:16 AM by Dan Lyke | 6 comments »

This is a cutting board. It’s not terribly flat. The boards which make it up are all different sizes. As you can see from the picture, it doesn’t fit in at all with the general decor of the kitchen it’s made for. I didn’t put in the “projects” section because… well… frankly I’m not terribly proud of it, but I had to show it off to someone because… Nearly 9 years ago, the woman with whom I shared my life for the previous 7 or...

Making Your Own Hardware, a Hammered Copper Finger Pull for the Tilt Front Laptop Computer Desk

10-13-2007 06:25 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 27 comments »

Over the past few years, I have had the chance to build my own door handles out of copper for several commissioned art-furniture pieces. This is something I enjoy doing, and it gives my work another niche to offer. I would not say that I am a coppersmith, as there is a lot that I don’t know about the process. I am almost completely self-taught, so there is bound to be a lot I haven’t learned yet. I bought two old reprinted books on the subject of coppersmithing, and I think ...
