This is a simple way to disguise ugly gaps that may occur on roof sides after shingling, where insulation or slats may be visible. This is also a great way to create elaborate and flexible patterns with virtually no scrap. There are some free patterns on the Template page. I should add, you can extend them easily by gluing them up to one another. http://youtu.be/rbuMCjvKA8U Continue Reading Roof side decoration
If your kids have a toy shop, here is how you can make them a cool looking (and wooden) corn cob to sell to their customers. All you need it a piece of dowel, some string and wooden pearls.
On a side note, I have not been uploading in a while since I have been working on several things at once (one of them being my Patreon campaign). I hope to get at least some of them finished soon.
A Royal Decree? Yes. No explanation necessary, because that would be beyond the scope of the usual blog post. Also, let’s see who can spot the most woodworking references before checking out the commented transcript further down! Enjoy, and remember to Be Inspired!
I recently submitted my entry to Summer’s Woodworking‘s 2014 2×4 competition, and I have been asked to put together plans for the toolchest. At first I thought that it would be tough since I improvised my way through this project, but as I thought about how I could do it anyway I realized that I could at least share with you how I went about buiding the chest.
Repurpose the paper tray of an old printer to make a cheap center finder for your drill press. It does not take much – apart from the paper tray, of course – to turn this into a simple center finding jig for your drill press. Combined with a piece of scrap wood or a sufficiently large drill press table, this center finder works a treat.
Introducing the Young Woodworker’s Toolchest. So It finally has arrived – my entry to Summer’s Woodworking’s 2×4 competition, after hours and hours of trash talking (and procrastinating). It is meant as a toy (for children, not the kind that comes with a plug and push sticks) and contains a collection of basic woodworking tools. I made a mallet, two chisels, an angle gauge, a measuring stick, a square, a handsaw and a plane.
Build a stand for rarely used tools, saving space while keeping them in the shop. This project was inspired by Jack Houweling’s design (as far as I know there are no plans for it as of now), but it turned out much less sophisticated (and not knowing the mechanism he used, I venture to say that it was also much less complicated to build). Check out the video and if you are interrested, there are some thoughts and ideas I had during the build that did not make it into the final cut, as well as some thoughts on further improving the design.
