Hand Tool Display Wall

03-16-2020 01:36 AM by Jeff100 | 8 comments »

So is it just me or when I hear the words “self quarantine”, I also hear “Perfect time for a big shop project!!” I am in deperate need of a new tool wall. The last one was just a pallet hung up on the wall with screws and nails hanging what all i could fit. Well, as the collection of hand tools grows, the wall needed to get bigger and better organized. And so it begins, Here’s roughly what needs to get hung up, all in specially designated holders ...

Small Projects #17: Glass Pipe Accessory Stand

02-27-2020 12:26 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

My customer sells a variety of pipes and smoking accessories and needs various display stands for the oddly shaped bits and bobs.It’s a ‘whatzis’ stand This is the second stand I made for them. The first was similar but had three rows of 1/2” posts whereas this version has two rows of 3/4” posts. I dropped off the first one yesterday and my customer was so pleased they immediately ordered the 2nd one. The beveled edge detail is common to both stands as is t...

Wood Magazine Glass Display case - an upscale adventure #1: In the beginning - there was a model

07-07-2018 12:30 AM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

In my last project I talked about the stand I made for a recently finished model. Several people had given advise about working as quickly as possible to keep it dust free. It’s sound advise and typically it’s either a buy the case before the model is finished, or as soon after the model is finished as one can. Being on lumberjocks, I figured I HAD to build my own case, or turn in my membership! I searched around, and LittleBlackDuck had a right decent case he made, and w...

Christmas Display - My First Commissioned Project #1: Project Intro

11-03-2016 05:48 PM by GrumpyCub | 3 comments »

A friend has commissioned a special project from me for his wife. She collects “Christmas Houses”. I gather that these are porcelain or ceramic buildings that light up and are displayed in “Villages” around the house. His wife wants a set of tiered shelves that are round, allowing a 360 degree display of her collection. Requirements for the project are as follows: 1. 60” Tall2. 4 Circular Shelves3. General shape is consistent with a Christmas Tree4. Must break...

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...

Cookbook Shelf Units #8: Biscuits, shelves, prefinishing, final assembly, HOORAY!

12-22-2014 03:49 AM by Greg Guarino | 0 comments »

I’m finally finished, but I’ve fallen behind in the blog description. Biscuits for the uprights:Each upright “leg” consists of a 1×3 and a 1×2 joined at a right angle with a small shadow line. Biscuits seemed like the right method: Then I did a dry fit: Everything went together well enough, so I decided to glue up the “ladder” sides. Although I tend to prefinish everything before gluing, I decided it would be too time-consuming to pr...

PortablePastimes #2: 3rd Show Down

12-03-2012 03:11 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Yesterday we completed our 3rd of the 4 shows we are doing this holiday season and after a very slow start business picked up, which we were happy about that. This time around though I sold only two pens but had a run on peg games. I am going to be making more this week so I have some extra stock for next weekend’s show.The other big switch came in the fact that we sold no crayon rolls this time but my wife took 6 orders for her tailgate checker boards. You can see a few of them here ha...

Stop motion video of a Walnut 3 tier stand

09-22-2012 01:28 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 1 comment »

I had a little fun with an idea I had to take some pictures of a recently completed project. This is a 3 tier walnut stand that is used to display product in a local store. I picked up a few cases of the types of product that would be displayed on the stand. I would take a picture then add a jar then take another picture, I used Quicktime 7 to make a video of the image sequence. I wish I would have taken a couple shots of each product by its self on the shelf, I think I could have played w...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #4: Fixing stupid mistakes, but it's finally taking shape.

08-07-2012 08:47 PM by BTimmons | 2 comments »

The shims I glued to my tenons are ready to be pared back. Seems like the mortises were just a little less than square with each other, which caused the twist when connecting the two of them with the center piece. So this session involved a lot of me hunching over the bench paring away paper thin shavings. Testing my fit. The top of the tenon cheek is good, but the rest of it is still a little too fat. Shaving just a bit off, and then it fits nice and snug. I also dete...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #3: Tweaking the fit, first coat of oil finish

08-05-2012 09:27 PM by BTimmons | 1 comment »

Last time I didn’t have all four bottom surfaces sitting flat. Turns out this was due to the center piece being fitted with a slight twist because one mortise had been carved out with a slight twist. So, by the time the mortise was straightened out somewhat with a chisel, the tenons didn’t quite fit as snug as they should. So on both tenons of the center piece, I glued some thin mahogany strips to shim up the tenons to tighten the fit. These will likely end up being pared or f...
