The Little Wood Shop 2019
« on: Apr 25, 2017, 04:21 AM »
Well, I've started moving back to the garage to get the wood shop up and running. I have several projects in mind already including some feeders, houses, native bee and bug boxes and flower boxes for Mama.   

I've also been asked to build a few trellises which ought to be fun.

Still need to get the drill press, belt disc sander and small tools situated. I'm pondering dust collection yet again. I acquired a big dust collector that was used for a mower blade sharpening station. It's a beastly thing but might be adaptable.

The new Dewalt compound mitre saw needs a permanent home too. Lots to do again.   ;D

Good thing I retired.

You're welcome.
Did they get the "self winding top" to work?

Here's a video I did on how to use them.

Fun stuff.

 Cut up some landscape timbers today  to finish the horseshoe pits.


I'm experimenting with a permanent home for the new miter saw. It's a really messy piece of equipment. Best I can do is control it . I repurposed the table saw stand. Pretty stable really. I just set up the Saw horses as out feed tables for the time being.


I'll end up with a system I like. I will say it's a real pleasure to use.

Decided to make a couple of Adirondack style chairs for my Bride and I to lounge in at the campfire.

Dug up some plans, made a few templates and cut out some parts.



Got the bases done today.



Just need to fabricate some seat and back slats and they'll be comfy chairs.

Progressing on the adirondak chairs.


Made a taper jig for the table saw to make the back slats.



Safe repeatable cuts. Did the first cut this morning. More to do after work. Hope to have them done for Saturday night's campfire.

Figure of speech. The folks who give me money every two weeks seem to think it's a job....so I go with the flow.

Thanks guys. A labor of love for sure. My Bride and I celebrated our 46th anniversary last Monday. I promised her some comfortable fireside loungers.

Managed to find a couple perfect cushion sets for them this afternoon.


And yes......the armrest is quite functional ;D


I'm about to light the campfire. Have a great evening everyone.
