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 (& ...

Small Projects #52: Steampunk Unity Weather Station Done!

08-11-2021 11:53 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This started out as an offshoot of my humidor project. I buy in pairs and so I had a spare hygrometer. An idea of a weather station began to form. Unity Weather Station, on top of a table stereo, on top of an Edison Phonograph. Wax to Bluetooth in one century. I call it the “unity” box because of the variety of woods: White (maple) Black (wenge) Brown (walnut) Red (purpleheart) Yellow (yellowheart) I found a $12 LED module with time, indoor temp, outdoor temp...

Small Projects #48: Jatoba Strong Box Finished!

06-14-2021 05:25 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

Friend asked me to build a cash box. Something small enough to fit under a bed but still capable of holding significant amounts of cash in a neat and orderly fashion. Strong boxes have a long history. They are often metal banded and reinforced and are designed to resist attack. Being wood, fire can breach the structure. However, being a paper money storage strong box, fire will destroy the contents, defeating the purpose. Completed Strong Box. Build details below … I tried t...

Around The Shop.. #4: Space is Clean! Time to get organized!

06-07-2021 07:42 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Well today was a pretty productive day in the “new” shop space. I was able to get the space fully cleared out and swept. Then emptied all the boxes of tools and parts etc onto all the table spaces so I can see what I have to put away and nothing is being hidden inside a box. The most exciting part was finally getting my roubo workbench in place and cleaned up. I will need to resurface the top but need to get my planes tuned up and sharp first. Otherwise it is holding strong...

A Table for the Gazebo #8: Time for a PIP

05-31-2021 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on…. Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used.. I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching ...

05-24-2021 02:39 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

Used to smoke cigars, but after my 3rd MI, 4th stent & pacemaker its mostly a memory. Never smoked enough to make buying a box of cigars worthwhile but have always wanted a humidor. Completed project. Design:I found hydrometer’s for cheap at Walmart and bought a couple. 1-3/4” x 1” LCD hydrometer with C° indicator. I bought some Spanish cedar and I have some walnut on hand and so a plan was born. I smoked Panatellas and they’re 7” to 7”-1...
