Well, like some many of the LumberJocks, I’ve moved over here to kill a couple of more hours a day. I’m in the process of building my own house. Been working on it for over two years. Pay as I go. Of course, the furniture making gets in the way, but the LOML has put that on hold for at least 6 months, which should be time to get things finished up. Been living in the upstairs of my shop, so it’s time to get ‘er done, so I can have more shop space. I’ll keep you...

Bathroom Remodel #8: A little trim

12-02-2015 06:52 PM by Dan Lyke | 16 comments »

Took me a couple of tries to get a mirror shape I liked: A few things I learned about cutting the oval (which took me 3 tries, although one of those was unrelated to the cutting): Cut from the front, not the back. I was concerned about the mirror coating peeling off when I broke the glass, but it turns out it came off just fine. Alas, it was too thick for my cutter to cut through. Don’t try to clamp it into the frame. Then i built up a frame for the mirror and routed...

Exterior Fix-its #2: Storm Door's Installed

10-27-2008 07:35 PM by Scott Hildenbrand | 16 comments »

Finally got to doing more with the front door this weekend and got the storm door installed. It’s a really nice Pella 8500 Roll Screen in Cranberry with Oil Rubbed Bronze hardware. The day before the install I patched the rotted sections of the door jamb, which I’d dug out much earlier to solid wood.. I used the fiberglass resin + sawdust method, followed by autobody filler. It worked GREAT and is as solid as a patch that ever was. Plus I never have to worry about it rotting ou...

04-04-2008 01:10 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

April 4, 2008 Here is an aerial view of my property from ). Somewhere in the house I have a picture of the house prior to our renovations. Originally the house was “one room” deep. We pretty much doubled the size by adding a living room and bathroom downstairs, 2 bedrooms upstairs and the basement area which is now our woodworking shop.

Ghost Doorbell Ringing Problem...

01-01-2015 03:00 PM by Mark | 15 comments »

Hi All - Attached is a video I made a couple of days ago showing my fun with a little doorbell project – we literally had the doorbell ringing every few days at dinnertime for no obvious reason. It was kind of funny in hindsight, really, as we all were starting to develop sort-of an anti-Pavlovian response: we were all starting to ignore the doorbell! (And occasionally, there were real people out there who would be like… “Didn’t you hear me ringing?”) In...

My Home #1: My Goals

03-20-2008 12:51 PM by MsDebbieP | 15 comments »

March, 2008 For the past few months I have been slowly changing the look of my home. My original goal was to create a rustic look for my home filled with antiques from my family and with things that I had made myself. Since that time, I’ve started going on monthly road trips with my sister-in-law hitting local antique stores. I have also grabbed some paint and made some changes here and there. The paint doesn’t quite fit the rustic antique look and so my “style” ...

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 | 14 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...
