Benches #1: Blue Stain Pine Bench

02-05-2021 05:15 AM by JohnnyCanuck | 6 comments »

Making a little bench for a mountain house in CO. Simple…just a 2 in. plank of blue stain pine over carbon steel legs. Legs are bar stock – 2.0 in. wide x 1/4 thick. I’ll attach via two lag screws dipped in wood glue. Sanded via hand. 80/120/150. Applied two coats Watco Danish Oil (Natural) about 2h apart.24h after 2nd coat:48h after 2nd coat. I’ll apply Watco Wipe-On Oil-based poly next.

Old Projects #16: Self Centering Bits Storage Box

01-30-2021 11:41 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Got a set of self centering pilot drills in the other day. They were a good value but just came in a blister pack. Rather than let them rattle around and get damaged / dull / lost I decided to make a little 1-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 5” box to store them in. In my shop about all we discard is sawdust! I gathered some walnut and cherry scraps and came up with this: Nothing like a quick little project to give me a sawdust fix for the day. - – - – - – - – - - ...

Old Projects #15: Bathroom Medicine Chest

01-26-2021 11:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

One of life’s little peeves is fumbling in the dark for an aspirin or other item at night in the bathroom. This medicine chest is split into his & hers sections, each with an automatic LED lamp and clear shelves to keep you from brushing with Brylcreme! His & Hers lighted medicine chest. 1/2” × 3-1/2” S4S oak was used from the local (over priced) big box store. Each door was made with a captive metal insert. I chose this pattern & color, but many variations are a...

Boxes from Red Cedar #4: From scraps to a tray

12-23-2020 03:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

As I guess the sides of this tray make it a box…sort of? Sorted through the leftovers….managed to find three decent looking ones….none were bowed…just the T&G edges were not the best looking..or ..locking. Tablesaw to rip those off. Was trying for a 9” x 12” panel… This was so much fun to do…..first blue clamp wanted to pop the 3 slats up into a curvy thingy….started to add the cauls, to keep things close to flat….....

REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP #4: now I'm working with power

12-19-2020 05:44 AM by garethmontreal | 2 comments »

Quick update spent the day you vwrjng the shop with my huddg and it’s all done now. Installed 4 new lines (three 110v and one 240) so that the table saw, lathe, band saw and drill press each have their own dedicated circuit. Have to organize everything again but totally worth it very excited to get it up and running.

12-06-2020 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, worked on the lid a bit….panel wasn’t fitting just right…..grooves were preventing things from settling all the way in…we have ways.. Changed the cutter from 1/2” wide, to 1/4” wide….had a few high spots to level…. Was finally able to spread some glue, and add some clamps…inside looked good….topside? Will be a work in progress….bad sign…fingers way too long….. Cut a few thin slats to size….and...

REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP #2: The shop will be mostly set up and good to go a week from today.

11-22-2020 05:33 AM by garethmontreal | 8 comments »

My electrician friend is coming by friday to help me (by which I of course mean hell be doing the actual work will i hand whatever he asks me for to him) get everything wired up properly. Thankfully my main panel has a bunch of space left to add new circuits and its located in the room right beside the workshop. Given this fortuitous state of affairs we are going to set the table saw one its own separate circuit (which is 240v probably would have done this regardless) as have a dedicated cir...
