Bathroom Remodel #7: They say it's only vanity

12-02-2015 06:37 PM by Dan Lyke | 36 comments »

The face is 2” thick cherry, which will be carved, so I had to modify the clamp for my dovetail jig to hold it in place while I cut the dovetails: And then the top is an inset sink into a block of the same marble we used for the diagonal pattern: Because the inside of vanities can be super nasty, the side is a louvered panel to provide airflow: And the drawer is notched to fit around the drain: The front of the vanity is carved: And then I had to ...

Simple Hall Way redo. #6: The End in Sight?

07-21-2012 05:23 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 36 comments »

The end is not necessarily in sight but my stopping point will be soon I think. I have started attaching base boards tonight but I quit a few minutes after 9:00 I don’t want my neighbors on the war path because of my miter saw noise. The dremel tool isn’t terribly quiet either. As for inside the house, the compressor is a noisy beast. I put up the trim to divide the hallway from the living room. I also got a few pieces of base board attached. As you can see I ...

Kitchen #1: A little this.. a little that...

02-11-2009 06:23 PM by MsDebbieP | 33 comments »

Feb 11, 2009 (Note: no pictures available) It’s been a few years that I have held back from moving stuff around in the kitchen. I’ve waited patiently until I just couldn’t wait any longer! The “before” is irrelevant, other than saying that the “before” annoyed me. So Monday, I moved the upright freezer out into the porch, removed the shelving units that surrounded my chimney (which has fake red brick on the surface and I love the look). Ri...

Remodeling a family cottage #4: Window casings and LED lighting

08-08-2013 09:25 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 29 comments »

Well, it’s been awhile. I got all the oak planed and jointed and made all the window sills and casings and got them installed. I also installed the oak facing on the underside of the header from the load bearing wall I tore down a ways back. I installed some LED light strips on both sides of the header. They have an RF controller so that I can change colors, flash, strobe, blend, dim, etc. The power supply sits in a cavity on the wall where all the internet stuff resides. this will b...

Garage door opener, gotta share this, unusual, unique design. one moving part.

11-21-2011 02:20 AM by Craftsman on the Lake | 29 comments »

Update two years later 9/16/13: The opener is still working like the day I bought it. First one that’s lasted this long on my large wooden door. I don’t know where exactly to put this so I guess a blog entry is the best. First of all I am just a guy in Maine with an 18 ft wood garage door. Heavy and older. (the door… I guess me too) Anyway, I am not in any way affiliated with any garage door people or companies or stores that sell them. I’ve had a few garage door...

DIY Ideas #1: A few of my ideas of how to turn you bedroom from drab to fab

07-27-2015 10:36 AM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 28 comments »

If there’s one thing I hate it’s sleeping in a bedroom that’s full of clutter and clothes everywhere. I always try to clear up my bedroom as best I can but unfortunately my boyfriend doesn’t seem to share my sense of tidiness and it always ends up with clothes and what not spread about the room! When I do get a chance to clean and tidy the room though, there are a couple of ideas I have in mind on how to turn it from something that’s average into something beautiful. Of course there are...

hard wiring a light to an outlet #1: 1. Research for an electrical project I'd like to attempt - is it possible?

11-17-2013 01:47 AM by Becky | 28 comments »

Got a bit of flak for posting over in LJ so I thought my better bet may be here :) I wanted to document this process in case well – in case I ever need to refer back to it or maybe someone has the same dilemma’s I do about this process? My workshop is in half of my two car garage and I want to install a four bulb florescent fixture to get as much light as possible since with winter I will be working with the garage door closed :) I was able to pick up a commercial/residential...

Am I Really going to do that to my fireplace!? #1: Some Materials gathered and I'm dying to start!

08-11-2012 03:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 28 comments »

Once again, I have totally lost my mind. Demo is not done. I haven’t built a scaffold. I don’t have the fireplace stone veener. I haven’t bought my wood floor for the living room. The hallway is not complete. There are a bazillion reasons why I shouldn’t start and yet….. I’ve got to take a few breaths and delay for a while while I think about execution and the layout of what I’m thinking. The more days I can do that, the better off I will be. If I ...
