Drum Sander #8: One Year On

05-29-2011 03:23 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

Its been a little over a year since I made this Drum Sander. This update shows minor modifications and it’s present condition including any wear on the MDF table. Here she is without the dust hood. As you can see the promised paint job never happened. This Sander has been in more or less continuous use, on pretty much every project of mine, for the past year. There hasn’t been time to paint it (and let it dry). As for wear on the MDF table, there is minimal surface sc...

Update on Megan and her brain tumor

05-03-2011 07:19 PM by lilredweldingrod | 57 comments »

Last year Bert Flores and I built boxes for my grand daughter. Bert made her a beautiful jewelry box and I made a keepsakes box. She was supposed to be going in for a removal of her brain tumor that is pressing on her hypothalamus and pituitary gland.She has suffered from hydro encephalitis for about seven years now and has had to have the tubes changes every 9 to 12 months to relieve the pressure on the brain.The worst part of all this is that the father and step mother refuse to up date u...

Asian Cabinet #4: Legs and Aprons

11-10-2010 01:58 AM by Brian Havens | 3 comments »

Makings some progress again, after getting a little side tracked on the second set of legs Some may be curious about the rasp that I use for making templates. It is a #49 Nicolson, a.k.a. “pattern maker’s rasp”. It has an irregular tooth pattern that make it cut quickly and easy to control as well. You can see it here . It is a little expensive, but if you plan on doing a lot of templates, it is worth it in the long run.

random #40: outta time :(:

08-25-2010 11:57 AM by Gary Fixler | 21 comments »

That symbol is a frowney/smiley, because the news about my job lately is bittersweet. After the 7-month unemployed spell that started last September and lasted exactly as long as my savings held up, an old coworker got in touch with me about coming to work with him at an online games division of Disney. It was a really great opportunity to do exactly what I do, which is pretty niche, and it marked the first time the job skills requirements matched 100% with my resume. They’re usually mo...

Daily Update #74: July 21, 2010 Make-a-wish finished

07-21-2010 03:52 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I finished up the batman bed for Make-A-Wish. I started it late Monday and it needed to go out today to make the Next Monday make-over deadline. It turned out great! Now I need to get back on track with my scheduled projects. Today I’ll work on getting the Cherry pre-cut murphy bed ready to ship. This is one that the customer will build themself but I give them a little head start. I pre-cut the boards, edge the endgrain, sand them up, and drill most holes. After that I’...

Daily Update #70: July 15, 2010

07-15-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for July 15, 2010. Working on the finish for a twin built in murphy bed for a local designer. This is a twin size that has not a lot of room for error. It will be folding out of a closet door with just a fraction of an inch of clearence. If the back wall is slightly out the wrong direction I may have a problem. The finish will be the same color as the walls. I’ll have it mixed up in a lacquer because that is what is easier for me. I’ll be...

The Latest Update From The American Craftsman Workshop

07-12-2010 07:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

Finally! Well guys, I am finally getting my schedule and projects under control. But I am still busy working 7 days a week to catch up. For the last couple of weeks I have been knocking off work between 10 and 10:30pm. Working from 7am to 10pm sounds like a long day but it is short compared to the previous 3 months that I was working 7am until 1 or 1:30am. There were two instances where I worked from 7am one morning until 11:30 the next night with only about a 1hour nap. I find that ...
