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...

Small Projects #53: Walnut Air Filter Stand

08-25-2021 02:01 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

We have pets and with pets comes pet dander and allergies. We bought a Grizzly G0738 two stage (5um & 1um) filter. Grizzly G0738 two stage, three speed air filter w/ remote. It really makes a difference but it’s not the most attractive box in the bedroom. It’s been sitting on a faux walnut MDF stand that’s falling apart. I decided, and SWMBO agreed, that something better was needed. Completed top is gorgeous! I came up with a design for a real walnut (& ...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Tool Cabinets #2: Tool cabinet has become tool WALL

11-12-2017 03:22 AM by glideking | 10 comments »

Having the 3D controller in my left had and the trackpad in my right has been a game changer. I can now fly through my plans. Thought I would start cutting lumber today but I keep coming up with ideas on my drawings in Sketchup. As the program gets easier for me I am exploring construction and configuration possibilities. The back panels and flipper doors have become bead board. Added crown molding just to learn the “follow me” tool in Sketchup. I did not want the saw till behind ...

Thorsen House Cabinet #5: Finalising the carcasswork

12-20-2014 04:54 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone – this post is more of a basic check-in than a large amount of progress. The build date on this project is still not set purely because I have other projects of higher priority. Specifically, I have a Gamble House dining room table and chairs to build. So anyway. This project will be pushed along through the design process whilst that one is playing out with perhaps a degree of crossover on when it will happen. Perhaps spring 2015? Based on my observations of the original...

Ultimate CAD/CAM for DIY/Hobby/Professional and a GREAT Deal

10-30-2014 02:40 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

I’ve been searching for powerful CAD/CAM software that is affordable/free. I finally found it in Fusion 360 from Autodesk. They offer a full featured parametric 3D modeling software with integrated CAM. The integrated CAM makes the CAM parametric to the geometry as well. Currently, there is only a single product in the family which is free for personal/hobby use (yes legally). The full featured version is $300/year now. Come November 8, 2014, they will be offering a standard version ...

New to Lumberjocks. Wanting to learn how to work with wood and make useful things or at least something that looks cool. I have a mechanical design and drafting background and I usually use 3D solid modeling software to make models for use in creating drawing packages. What can I expect from this site?

Twin Size Bed CAD Rendering

01-22-2013 09:45 PM by jap | 1 comment »

I’m thinking of using cherry wood. The curve on the head and foot board are inspired by John McAlevey”s bed in Fine Woodworking Magazine #84. What do you think?
