Small Projects #15: Model Paint Organizer

02-16-2020 12:05 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

To make the wonderbread pipes I needed small volumes of several different colors. A trip to the hobby store and I’m now the proud owner of a bunch of small Testor’s paint vials, thinner and brushes. Needless to say in my (admittedly) cluttered shop keeping the paints and stuff in one place quickly becomes an issue. But hey! I’m a woodworker! I can fix that! I rummaged around for a few scraps and built this: The bottom is oak (it was the only piece of 3-1/2” wide ...

Small Projects #12: Wonderbread Pipe

02-06-2020 10:07 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Trying to get creative with a new prototype pipe: Started with a chunk of 5/4 jatoba, cut square, 4” long. The 5/8”-7/16” stepped bowl and 3/16” stem were drilled to produce a viable pipe blank. I make these blanks a half dozen at a time, each winds up as a unique ‘art pipe’. This set of blanks was oriented so that the sides are quartersawn, crown up. I drilled the blank randomly with both a 3/16” and 1/8” bit, each about 1/4” deep....

Another new shop - third time's the charm? #3: Sheathing and Painting the Walls

11-04-2019 06:54 PM by DrPuk2U | 1 comment »

This is the third in a series of posts. I intended to post as I went but the work was HARD and it was often all I could do to get the work on the shop done. Documenting? Sure, later… So now the shop is largely done (haha) and I’ll try to document how I got here. Once the electrical and insulation were done it was time to close up the walls. There were basically two choices: - Sheetrock- Sheet stock (e.g. plywood, OSB, etc.) Though sheetrock had attractions as it looks bet...

Intarsia Rooster Weathervane

09-07-2019 12:09 AM by justoneofme | 13 comments »

Great big hellos to all LumberJock buddies! It seems I’m on a roll!! Now that I’ve completed my (blogged about) Rustic Intarsia donation for Hospice House, I thought it was high time to finally finish off another Intarsia project that’s been hanging around unfinished far too long. My Rooster Weathervane … started in APRIL of 2017!! Years ago I fell in love with the funkiest colorful rooster weathervane ever, and although I couldn’t justify such frivolous expense … a seed was...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #5: Cutting Curves and Dresser Delays

07-15-2018 12:31 PM by JohnMcClure | 0 comments »

Progress has been slow lately, because of other demands on my time. All I’ve done for the bed the last few days is cut out the curved rails on the bandsaw, and rough-cut the tenons. The short rails have a pretty aggressive curve, so I needed wider than 1×6 stock. I ended up jointing and gluing two 1×6s to make a wide enough board, then making a lot of funny-shaped scraps.Today I hope to fit the tenons to their mortises, then cut grooves for the panels in the rails, then cut ou...

Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate’s, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

Lego Table #6: Hybrid woodworking

11-22-2015 07:53 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post is fairly image heavy—I’ll post a few here but to see all the images, please visit my woodworking blog) Accomplished a fair amount today. Before I got to work, I dusted off the base and the legs one final time and then primed the legs …and painted the base. It’s hard to tell, because I used white primer and white paint, but trust me, it looks nice in person. I put on two thin coats and used up almost a whole can of spray paint, but it sure does look ...

Hints and Tips #11: Get a Grip on Your Spray Cans!

09-16-2015 01:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Some of us use spray cans of finishing products to protect our projects. Using a spray can while holding down the button with an achy finger was challenging at best. Then I saw these grips for spray cans in the paint section and bought one. I can’t describe what a difference the grip makes. It makes a can of spray behave like a spray gun. You get great control over aiming and starting/stopping the spray. There seem to be grips made by many spray paint brands as well as a few generic...

Not a huge addition to the shop, but this helped out clean up a lot of clutter on my desk area. But little by little im getting closer to a nice organized shop. I just used whatever scrap I had laying around which help clear up a little clutter in another part of the shop! :) I really love this piece even though it was such a small addition!
