Alaska Cabin #2: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Kitchen Lights

02-06-2019 01:33 AM by Matt Snyder | 2 comments »

After my diamond willow and agate bed lights turned out so good I decided to do something similar in my “kitchen”. Running across the front wall of the kitchen is an electrical conduit tube that looks ugly and I wanted to hide it behind some diamond willow while adding some LED lighting. I looked through the pile of wood I harvested in the spring and found a strait enough piece that had some character and was big enough to cover everything up. To make it fit flush to the wall, I...

Rotocator - DIY Style #2: Make a DIY Rotocator

01-30-2019 11:19 AM by CaptainKlutz | 6 comments »

What is Rotocator? please see post #1. :) Preface:What I have made below is not new. It is not my original idea. I take zero credit for this tool. I found some images for this tool searching for cheap way to make the trademarked Rotocator, and later found an obscure blog post with parts list. Since I first book marked the web page, it has disappeared from WWW. Decided that this tool was important enough it needed some additional documentation in WWW, especially for folks here on...

Shop stuff #143: A table for the TV

12-22-2018 03:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

My neighbour asked me if I could build a table for her TV to sit on. Originally, she wanted it painted, I talked her out of that after I milled up the stock for the legs. A lot of work using re claimed and left over wood but it turned out pretty decent in the end. I made this one a longer format as the holidays are upon us and I thought something to settle in and watch would be the way to go. This may depend on how well you get along with the rest of the family and how much alcohol is con...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Shop stuff #141: Roubo bench build part 9

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #1: E-M-L in process

11-18-2018 03:29 PM by kordwood | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this little piece seems share-worthy. It’s an homage to three of my favorite Arts and Crafts pioneers: Harvey Ellis, Charles Limbert and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. They all bring a different aesthetic, but mashed up, the A&C commonality becomes clear. The Ellis influence: Most evident in the delicate edge of the top. The Mackintosh influences: The overall proportion and the inward angles of the legs. The Limbert influence: ...

How I made #11: Floor Lamp with LED Light

10-26-2018 12:23 PM by WoodenWorldDenic | 6 comments »

It all started by asking myself how to use a walnut board with a natural edge, which left from some other project. I wanted to put a plexiglas between two such boards, but I later changed my mind and decided to use only one board, because it seemed visually to me more tempting. For the light source I used a LED strip that illuminates the side of the plexiglass, giving an interesting visual effect. The ability to adjust the intensity and color of the light is convenient for obtaining the appro...
