Small Projects #45: Cat proof screen porch

05-04-2021 02:41 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

The screen porch screens have seen better days. They’re at least 15 years old and showing their age. Where we live in fla development is displacing natural habitat of all sorts of critters — including what appears to be Florida panthers. Big tawny cats are regularly spotted in this area and last fall one of our kitties got out and met an untimely end. Since then the porch has been off limits for both kitties and puppies. Seeing the cats longing for the outside got me thinkin...

Small Projects #44: Buffer storage box (in process -- no pics yet but stay tuned)

04-22-2021 06:03 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

For those following this blog you know that I make smoking pipes. Toward that end I’ve been looking for a way to put a really high polish on them, esp. the mouthpiece area. Grizzly just came out with a ($110 + S&H) 4”/6” mini buffer that looked just the thing. It came and is a very nice little unit. Its a surprisingly heavy casting and motor: Grizzly T32004 mini buffer One of the nice features is you have both a “rpm to zero” off switch, but there is...

Plywood support, maybe too obvious to post

01-27-2021 11:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 15 comments »

As I get older, somehow plywood gets heavier. Anyway, it sucks. If you’re not there yet, wait, you will be eventually. I cut plywood on my table saw. It actually goes pretty good and saves me having to get horses out and use the skillsaw. I was looking at the rail on my saw the other day and thought of this. Nothing earth shattering and I know they have swing up arms you can buy, but I just needed a little support for the wide side of a sheet of plywood when cutting it. I took a 2...

Know someone who needs a desk?

09-12-2020 11:30 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 4 comments »

If you, or someone you know, are looking to buy a desk, you’re likely out of luck. The combination of supply chain disruptions and an increased demand due to students and adults working from home has created a desk shortage. I designed this desk to help solve that problem. It’s made from 1 sheet of plywood and is simple construction using corner brackets and screws. The cutting plan is efficient and only requires 5 cuts to make the 5 parts. Take a look at the video and see ...

Shop Shifting #6: Organizer Organizer

05-11-2020 03:06 PM by sras | 8 comments »

I’ve fallen behind on these updates. This project was completed almost 5 years ago. Time flies … I chose Harbor Freight’s parts storage case to organize my small parts (bolts, nuts, screws, nails, knobs…) I then designed a cabinet to organize the storage cases (an organizer for my organizers). I had a supply of 3/4” cabinet plywood leftover from my shop cabinet project. My first pass used 1/4” shelves, but they were sagging under the weight....

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Coronavirus has hit me

03-09-2020 03:31 PM by Rearviewmirror | 8 comments »

No, I’m not infected. My wife wanted two pieces of old cheap furniture refurbished and painted in trendy colors. Not a problem! Sanded them down, and went to buy the painting materials. Spray paint was easy enough, as were drop cloths, gloves and tack cloths. Just needed something to protect my lungs. Orange store had…zero. The entire section was completely empty. Blue store had…3m refills. That’s fine, I’d gladly drop the money on a higher quality reu...

Small Projects #19: Dog Platforms

03-06-2020 01:42 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Have too many dogs running around. We have drafty tile floors throughout and mostly Shih-Tzu’s and they don’t like the cold floor to sleep on. The better half wanted little platforms to put the dog beds on. These are 2’x2’ pieces of 3/4” ply on 6” high 2”x4” legs. For stability the 2”x4” feet have the front feet parallel to the sides and the back feet are mounted parallel to the back.The first pair were clear coated and very plain...

2 drawer chest #9: Monday, monday

03-03-2020 04:39 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Decided to press my luck..normally the Shop is closed on Mondays….Decided to see what I could get done… Removed a bunch of clamps, for one.. Which, with any luck, will get used again, shortly…. Means this drawer is out of the clamps. This is the Bottom of the 2 drawers. It needed the joints cleaned up, leveled, the plywood bottom planed and sanded to match the drawer better…then a few test fits…until it slid in without binding in the case….then ...
