Japanese Garden Bench #5: Finishing Up

03-07-2009 06:25 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

By popular demand. ;) So here’s the finished project with the first coat of stain. I made some modifications to the original plans one of which is the seat height. At 6’5” it is perfect for me, but about an 1” too tall for my wife who’s about 5’8”. The bench is very sturdy and relatively light weight since it is made out of redwood. I imagine it would be much heavier if I had used oak. Like I said before, this was a fun project and not too diffi...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #3: Welcome to the service department!

03-02-2009 07:11 PM by Kevin Wilson | 14 comments »

A fellow lumberjock, “Cabinetmaster”, posted on the previous entry of this blog that he was sure Grizzly and their service department would fix this jointer issue for me. He couldn’t have been more right!!! I called the service department this morning and spoke with Philip. I was prepped and ready for battle! Armed with good details, 30 or so photographs, and first name basis conversations with many of the sales associates I spoke to on Saturday. But Philip on asked o...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #2: Dare I say it?

03-02-2009 06:25 AM by Kevin Wilson | 8 comments »

Hi everyone. Well we have seen the mighty Grizzly! My mother-in-law, father-in-law, wife and myself all enjoyed a beautiful day in Muncy PA on Saturday. We met some good people at the Grizzly store…hello Jenny, John and Steve! They were all very helpful, both with tool selection and with locating a decent place to eat lunch. The store recently added on a HUGE warehousing division across the street from the main showroom…and I mean HUGE! After much deliberation with John ...

Wild Oregon Cherry Art Print Bin

02-24-2009 10:16 PM by David | 8 comments »

I just completed the art print bin being built for The Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, Oregon. This was a commissioned piece to hold shrink-wrapped art prints in the gallery. The owners felt that a wooden print bin would fit the character of the gallery better than a commercial steel bin. Music to this woodworker’s ears! Completed Print Bin The design was worked out with SketchUp and finalized with a mock-up built with pine and MDF using a Kreg Jig and pocket screw joinery. The ...

Garbage Can Holder #1: Learning Experiences

02-24-2009 04:41 PM by MyOldGarage | 7 comments »

Once upon a time . . . in a far away land . . . no wait . . it wasn’t really that far. It was our basement actually. There was a place FILLED with books. (How does this relate to a garbage can holder? Read on.) The culmination of Peggy and I’s households made for a rather large collection of books. We’re both avid readers, as is our family, so we have volumes of books. We needed more shelving and the existing shelving that we had was not quite designed to be up to t...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #1: The Plan...

02-23-2009 07:34 PM by Kevin Wilson | 9 comments »

Well kids, It’s been a long time in the making but this weekend I’m off to the Grizzly Woodworking Store in Muncy, PA. I’ve been there once before, and I gotta tell you if you’ve never been, it’s a real treat! The store is huge and loaded down with tools. My father-in law (Grampa Knapp) is going, of course. He wouldn’t miss it, and I’m very glad to have something like this I can share with him. And somewhere in all that loveliness is a jointer ...

Military Flag Display #1: Project overview and current status

02-11-2009 05:51 AM by Mike Morris | 5 comments »

Overview The current project I’m working on is a military flag display case. My grandfather passed away last February. He served in the Navy during WWII and was stationed in the Pacific. I’ve had this on the to-do list for awhile. This is my first project that I am starting from scratch with a blank sheet…although it’s a pretty simplistic design. Here is the current SketchUp rendition of the project: (click on image to download the SketchUp project file) ...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #2: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-03-2009 04:55 AM by Scott Parsons | 1 comment »

Another day, another dollar, right? Today was a bit slow in the shop so I took advantage of the lack of co-worker presence and shop room to do some personal work. I re-milled the refurbished cedar today. It’s obvious to me that I’ll need to mill some more to complete all the doors. It’s been a toss up between shaker doors with a fibrex panel sprayed with a coloured lacquer or solid panel doors. I struggled with this decision because I don’t like building something...

Savannah's Horse Barn for Christmas

12-17-2008 05:16 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

My youngest daughter was very much into horses when she was at home. We had 14 Acres in New Jersey and probably had horses for around 15 years or so. After High School was over the horses disappeared and the horse barn became a lumber storeroom. She got married and about 6 month ago her in-laws gave her some riding lessons as a birthday gift. The horse fever caught on again. This time she has a young daughter. For some reason girls and horses seem to go together. Missy sometimes takes S...
