Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #99: Child's Tool Box & Tea Light Sets

12-18-2018 04:10 PM by technoslick | 6 comments »

Finally making some progress on the gift building. The neighbor’s two year old is into tools, so I made for him a child’s size carpenter’s tool box. The sides and bottom are red oak, the ends hard maple, and the handle and pins out of poplar dowels. The tea light sets are going out to friends and family. The pines bases were cut from the staves of a large cable spool. While the holders will accept tea light candles, for safety sake I am using their LED counterpart. ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #96: Progress: Raised Dog Bowl Holders

12-12-2018 11:17 PM by technoslick | 2 comments »

I promised my youngest daughter for Christmas raised dog bowl holders for her two dogs. These are based on plans from Build Something. I posted in an earlier blog entry the prototype I built using vinyl-laminated chipboard and pine studs for the legs. You can see it in the picture, in front of the unfinished units. You may notice the two new units are longer and wider (an inch both ways) than the prototype, which was designed for a smaller bowl than I am going to use. Originally, I was...

Santa's helpers and other elves.

12-15-2017 11:28 AM by EricTwice | 1 comment »

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

Making the Penrose Sliding Trivet

12-03-2017 04:38 PM by Woodbutchery | 4 comments »

Lazyman posted his sliding trivets a few years back, and after a lot of banging around, I Put together one of these, but there were a few problems with my design; the pieces tended to want to come apart, and I wanted something to hold the trivet together so that you couldn’t easily slide it apart. After a little knocking around and a suggestion from my mother, I came up with the item below. So. Pieces are milled to 3/8” thickness and 3/4” width. I use “se...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #2: Preparing The Stock

11-29-2016 03:13 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall. I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces. My planer has brand new blades in it and ...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #1: Starting Out

11-29-2016 02:47 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Being my first project on here and my woodworking skills are rather limited, bare with me as I post bits and pieces and try to make sense of it for you all. Christmas is coming upon us quickly and as usual, I am in a rush to figure out gifts for the family. Being a holiday that society forgot the real meaning of… my wife and I decided to give the family a Scofield Study Bible to help reinstate the true purpose of the day. Of course, no worthy book is complete without a proper cont...
