6'x12' lean-too shed #9: All painting is complete. Roof drip edge, asphalt shingles installed. 99% done with exterior.

09-24-2018 01:02 AM by Holbs | 1 comment »

Just about to call this shed project completed, almost.All painting is complete with 2 coats on the trim/facia boards, siding, and doors. Used a little 4” paint roller for the trim. The final color is a tad more peachy than the house. Looks like if I care much, I’ll have to repaint someday to get a closer matching color.Drip edges, roof underlayment, and 3 packs of shingles installed. My first time installing asphalt shingles. All done by hammer & nails, no air tools. Th...

Weekly(ish) Blog #2: Weekly(ish) Blog #3: 180922 Shop Blog

09-23-2018 01:33 PM by Rob_s | 0 comments »

The wife recently finished painting our cabana bath, and wallpaper’d one of the walls with some nautical charts, so we’re about ready to add some towel/robe hooks. Because (a) this is the cabana bath and (b) with two little girls we seem to constantly be looking for places to hang up towels, we wanted a lot of hooks. We’ve used boat cleats as towel hooks elsewhere, so she ordered up 10 from somewhere. Also the cabinet doors are a shaker style so we wanted to mimic that wi...

My Pretty Peach #2: A Cup in a Cup

09-23-2018 08:36 AM by Mark Wilson | 4 comments »

I posted the Peach Bowl this afternoon. Then, I took VOD to dinner. After dinner, I wanted to do something. So, what’d you do? Gather round. I’ll tell you. I’m posting this as a Blog for two reasons. 1) I may yet put a finish to it. And B) I couldn’t bring myownbadself to run the risk of another DT3 on something that’s so halfass. Remember this? Well, it was already on the lathe, right? Before I go on, join me in the way-back machine, won’...

CNC Carvings #5: The reason for the season! :-)

09-23-2018 04:08 AM by copythat | 0 comments »

9”x9” (roughly) pumpkin out of 1” thick duna board. 11”x11” (roughly) pumpkin out of 1” thick wormy maple. They just need a little paint. Vectric Aspire is the software I use for creating my carvings. It truly is a remarkable program. I found the pumpkin stl file on a 3D printer website; it was free. It was actually a complete three dimensional jack-o-lantern that I rotated 180 degrees and compressed the model height to .75 inches with a .20 b...

Toy Construction #230: Toyota 4Runner #4 Tail gate and sand sand sand

09-22-2018 08:28 PM by htl | 7 comments »

Spent half my time playing with the front end figuring out how I want it. But at least most of the rest of the truck is under control. Just wondering what some wheels would do for it. I guess after the front end some mud guards are needed.

09-22-2018 02:20 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A “Smart Phone” goes stupid…Computer goes on a brain fart trip ( computer LSD??) Order and PAY for a single heater insert, and two show up at the house?

Took a couple trips to the shop, to get set up, and do a bit of assembly…..Couple drills needed to go downstairs, a E-Cord reel needed to go along with them. And the Camera.. Cord reel, b...

Shop stuff #136: Roubo build part 7

09-22-2018 02:44 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Although I am spending all my time renovating the bathroom, I still have footage to edit of the Roubo bench build. This short one is getting the top built up to a thicker dimension because, well, that’s what I want. A bit of work and a lot of clamps. I really need more clamps, and better ones too. What a strange thing for a woodworker to say….lol. View on YouTube

Toy Construction #229: Toyota 4Runner #3

09-21-2018 09:04 PM by htl | 5 comments »

Had to get the insides done before I could go any farther with the top. Had some left over oak and walnut glued up so made the seats out of this odd ball wood. Between the seat glue ups I worked on the wheel wells.Then glue up the top and a ton a sanding would be in my future. If I was to build another one I would leave more wood above the sides above the doors so the roof and sides would match up better.With the older trucks and cars this usually isn’t a problem becaus...
