  1. Drywall/sheet goods rack

    I had a large item clutter issues in my shop, so this week I set out to correct that. I cut some dimensional lumber to length to hang a rack from my 10' 5" high loft joists. Before: and after:
  2. Globe Shelf

    Only a simple little project today. I got sick of the globe kicking around and made this quick shelf. Supports are maple. Outside shaped by bandsaw, inside by hand coping. The real innovation I wanted to try out is instead of driving the screws straight in (which never ends well) I ran them...
  3. Wind Spinner Fever

    Hello Again Fellow Lumberjocks! I learned this winter that sometimes it is not good to try new things…because you just might become obsessed with them! I built my first wind spinner in March. I had no idea how to create the iconic helical shape that so many wind spinners have but just happened...
  4. Nightstand

    This was built for my grandson who was into dinosaurs at the time. This project had a coupe of firsts for me, one was the stain. My daughter said that everything in my grandsons bedroom was dark and so she wanted a dark stain. I found an ebony stain and figured it doesn't get any darker than...
  5. Bird Houses

    These designs are something I came up with on my own after gawking at similar designs other people have built. What sets these apart are the methods I use to assemble them, and the size of the materials I guess. I start out with a rough sawn MN native pine board 14' x 5.25" x 1.75" (jack...

    I need to credit those responsible for this upgrade, Mark, Allen, Mom, Aunt Sandra, Cindy, Valerie, Garrett, myself and a few others, spent from 1 to 29 days working on this project. Drywall was prepped, taped, mudded, floated, sanded, etc. Texturing was blown on the ceiling and walls...
  9. Excalibur Murphy Bed | Custom

    This a Murphy bed that was completed on 10-31-2007. It is our Excalibur style, which has become one of the more favorite style. It was built form Alder wood, which has also become very popular. The flute molding on the sides are what make this a very attractive Murphy bed. This fluted...
  10. First bowls

    My very first bowls. A friend gave me a couple of roughed out blanks to play with. These are the result. Large one is 10"D X 4 3/4"H. Small is 9.5"D X 3 1/4"H. They were sanded to 600 grit and the finish is wipe on poly. The wood is Manitoba Maple. I'm told the red streaks will eventually turn...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    DW found this pic on-line and she said that she likes this style of furniture. What style is it? I can pick out G&G . . . but beyond that its a guess at best.
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I have completely redone my bathroom, including tearing down a wall and making a new one. My dilemma is this. I now want to hang quite heavy mirrors up. I have them up now with those plastic UGLY mirror holders to the studs. We hate this. We would like to find out if there is a product that we...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    Santa was kind to me in regards to employment bonus. Tomorrow, going to insulate garage door with 1.5" R-Max rigid insulation with foil. Next, I might actually tackle blown in insulation for the walls. But first, a question: I have 2×4 spacing between outside structure and inside drywall. I...
  14. Finishing
    OK - not sure if I've posted this in the right place, but I guess putting up drywall anchors would be finish work in as much as putting up trim is. I got to thinking about all of the types of anchors there are and decided to make my own comparison. And of course, I decided to video it. By the...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Question for all you LJ remodelers I have been doing this type of work for many many years but this is one thing I have never done so I need some expert advice. In my home I am doing extensive remodeling now. I have a den that has ¾ solid cherry walls that I want to protect while doing this...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey everyone! I've been working in a two car garage that does hold two cars sometimes and almost always has to fit one (the car can be out for the day but comes back at night). I'm thinking of putting up insulation and drywall. My thinking is that it would keep things more temperate in there...
  17. Blogs
    Passing time until I can get to work... On the off chance that anyone is interested, and because I'm new to blogs and facebook format, I'll just plunge ahead and start blogging away and begging for advice on woodworking. I'm just getting started with woodworking as a hobby. That's bad and...
  18. Blogs
    The Beginning - Getting Dirty It has only been four short years since I bought my first house. At the time I had no handyman skills to speak of; heck I didn't even know how to use a drill without obliterating the screw heads. What can I say, I've been a bit sheltered, but life is good, and I...
  19. Blogs
    Grandpa's RAS gets a new top Instead of adding a new project for the things I do around the shop, I thought I would start a blog about the upgrades as I make them. Over the past two years I have done a lot to convert the unfinished part of my basement into a woodworking shop. If you want to...
