Small Projects #54: Rick's Steampunk Stereo Weather Science Station

09-09-2021 02:24 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

It’s Ricktacular! Light show. Steampunk Rulz! Shop has been on a bit of a hiatus for a couple of months. First, parts have been taking forever. Second, we’ve been waiting on the mini-split to be installed. SWMBO had cleaned in anticipation of the AC install and had vacuumed to the point that we were able to actually see the floor. Having been instructed to keep things clean and clear for the AC tech, sawdust production stopped. Things took a bit longer to get instal...

Lighting for Wood Cabinets in My Jack Daniel's Bar

04-10-2021 03:40 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

Cabinet lighting for wood cabinets can be challenging, especially when there are wood shelves. See how to light up a cabinet with wood shelves to provide a nice glow. I also give a tour of my Jack Daniel’s themed bar, which might give you ideas for building your own bar. Video Link—> https://youtu.be/fDqyHGQE2Hw The existing cabinet lighting in my bar display cabinets have failed so I’m replacing them. About 15 years ago I installed LED rope lights, which were a...

SpeakEasy #1: Skewer Board

08-16-2018 09:03 PM by AAWW2005 | 8 comments »

Hi all! Yup, I’m still around and working with wood! A local bar which my daughter just happens to bar tend at asked if I could build them a 2 Skewer Boards for hors d’oeuvres. They sent a picture of an example of what they’re looking for an as you can see from my work, I can’t do simple and basic. I have their company logo and will be doing an intarsia version of that as their board. Watch for updates!

They Were Nice, But...

08-20-2015 01:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

If anyone remembers my festival of shop made bar clamps from a few years ago, you may be surprised to learn that they weren’t perfect after all. True I’ve used them as much as I could over the intervening time, but I was always contemplating on how to make them better. I even came out with an improved clamp a little while ago, but it too was not quite there. My improved clamp sports a stronger screw (3/8 in. instead of 1/4 in.) and the movable stop is much better, depending ...

Slight Upgrade for My Shop Built Bar Clamp

03-06-2015 08:46 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

A few years ago I built a bunch of bar clamps for my shop. The original post can be seen here [link] While they work adequately and I use them, I’ve always been a little dissatisfied with the movable stop (second picture above.) When edge gluing, they tend to force the wood up off the bar of the clamp. Also setting up for the glue up is a bit time consuming with having to unscrew the eye bolt and find the right hole and such. So Today my old clamps got noticed again, so I de...

From tree to bar! #4: Loading and Transporting

03-02-2015 10:31 AM by JonoMcHugh | 0 comments »

Once the tree had been halved, it was time to get it loaded and transported back to the shed where it can begin the drying process….all 18 months of it!! Being a big lug of wood, it wasn’t going to be as easy as lifting it onto the tractor and driving away. So a bit of thinking out side of the box was needed. We have a tripod frame and hand winch that we use on the farm to hoist up cattle that have gone lame from either calving or illness. The winch along with some well placed ...

Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

12-24-2013 08:14 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

In the wood shop today #19: Pouring and polishing an epoxy bar top counter

01-28-2013 02:52 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a custom home bar built from Bubinga and Walnut using solid and veneered wood. The counters will be protected from water using System Three Mirrorcoat a 2 part 2:1 epoxy finish that self levels and cures crystal clear. I had to give the counter a light sand and through 400 to 4000 then used a 3 step polishing process to bring the counter back to a beautiful gloss shine.
