Workshop #1: Building a Proper Workbench

02-22-2019 01:38 AM by b1v1r | 2 comments »

I read stefang's recent blog on how to Improve Your Posts and it reminded me of my first post long ago and, unfortunately, my lack of posts since. I remembered how I was pleasantly surprised that people took the time to look (and comment) on just a silly screened door from a beginner and thought what a great community this could be. And then I promptly forgot to post anything else. Sigh. I can do better… I came into woodworking with a strong desire to build, but without a lot of equi...

So... I build stairs

02-21-2019 09:33 PM by Jack Rigg | 0 comments »

The title of this blog is the lead for the advertising posts that I use on Facebook, it’s kind of a trademark of mine, although it’s not really proprietary. I was in a bit of a quandary in 2014 and needing work, having just left a fairly cushy job at a millwork company while determined to step back out on my own. I’d spent the previous 11 years programming various CNC’s, as well as other software related tasks such as AutoCAD and Inventor. Prior to that, I’d been a trim guy and stair builder ...

Treadle Lathe #14: Tool Rest and Finale!

02-21-2019 06:00 PM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

The project is finally done! I have been working on this project since late August. The final part of the project was to build the tool rest. It consists of a base plate with a sliding through mortise. The upright is mortise and tenoned into the baseplate and the steel prefabricated rest mounts within a 1 Inch hole on top. The steel rest is adjustable with a finger screw. The tool rest mounts to the frame and is adjustable front to back, side to side, up and down and can twist. The tool rest ...

Chester Drawers build #5: ready for a little assembly?

02-21-2019 05:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Time to put some of this mess into a case….set out a few tools.. One for pilot holes, and one to counter sink those holes…two pilot holes per end on the frames.. Then counter sink. got both ends of each frame done this way. Added a bead of glue, and a couple screws.. Line the frame up with the lay out lines….flush with the back’s rebate.. So the back panel can attach without any bulges….kept at it, until one side was assembled.. Then the tricky...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #11: Bird house from weathered deck wood

02-21-2019 10:22 AM by sras | 8 comments »

This project build is from 2015. I gave it away before I took pictures of the completed birdhouse. Last fall I finally took some pictures. This started with a pile of boards salvaged from a worn out deck. There were a couple pieces of tight grain fir in the pile that caught my interest. So I grabbed a few pieces. I re-sawed the worn wood away with the idea that the underlying tight grain fir would be of interest. However, once the weathered wood was cut away, the fir wasn’t al...

slow set super glue ?

02-21-2019 08:34 AM by recycle1943 | 6 comments »

This may be a redundent question but I’ve been searching and haven’t been able to find just what I’m looking for. Anybody that has seen my bowls or lampshades you know that I’ve been incorporating resin into them. The issue is that the glue I use take 4 to 5 hours to set and life would be so much nicer if I could find a glue that would allow me to align and clamp the rings with a couple minutes to set.I haven’t tried it yet because I don’t have any but ...

Understairs Drawer Storage

02-21-2019 12:47 AM by Muzzzzy | 0 comments »

Hi All, So I have had this idea to build under stairs sliding cupboards for quite some time mainly due to the wasted/misused space under our stairs. I have viewed some superb products online which seem overly expensive as i guess it is a bit of a specialist item. Anyway, being a bit of a computer enthusiast too I fire up a free version of SketchUp and put together this rough idea of what I would like to achieve. Add a couple more draws: And finally a cutting plan: Materials used ...

Chester Drawers build #4: details, router, assembly

02-20-2019 08:32 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, snowbound today. So, after Lunch, went to the shop, to get a few tasks done. Corner posts needed a couple rebates cleaned up, mainly in the corners,,,have a cleaner.. next, was the feet details….otherwise they look too “blocky”....olden days, I would just strike a line from the bottom rail to 1” from the outside edge…maybe something a little less plain? needed a way to trace a curve.. Hey, it works, makes a nice easy to cut curve.. Cut this out...

Wall-mounted Console #4: Details, details .....

02-20-2019 06:35 PM by builtinbkyn | 14 comments »

I think my procrastinating was put to good use. I wasn’t ready to proceed with where I was in the design. It’s a relatively basic design which is governed by the circumstances of the location. However I also felt it needed more detail to enhance the overall appearance of the composition. So I put pencil to paper to refine the nitty gritty of how everything will go together. At this point I feel satisfied in the direction this has gone. Now I just need to execute it...
