This Week in the Shop: The Library Book Nook

This Week in the Shop, I build a library book nook for my school. My school librarian came to me with her coffee bar theme for a renovated library and she wanted a circular book nook to take advantage of a certain space in the library. This book nook had to incorporate a column and reclaimed table top, be made under budget (roughly $500), have a professional look, design and materials. [ 432 more words ]

I will be there, will you?

A reminder that our Leesburg store will be open till 7pm this evening. Also wanted to let everyone know we will begin milling this 25' long log tomorrow for a conference table project next year. So if you have wanted to see in person come on out to our Berryville location and watch Wood Lohr slab up this massive tree. We will begin mid day tomorrow weather permitting, you can call 540-955-9522 if you want to know if we are cutting before you make the trip. So come on out and check out the biggest slabs around!

This Week in the Shop: Tool Rack

This Week in the Shop we build tool holders for my recently installed tool wall. An organized workspace is a functional workspace, especially in community shops. When everything has its place, every part of the shop seems to work quicker. So this week, I put together a few tool holders to put up some screwdrivers, chisels, pliers and nail sets.

This Week In the Shop: Storage Crate

This Week in the Shop we make a storage crate suitable to store a large pinewood derby track. This crate is simple to build and made out of very cheap materials. As built, this crate costs roughly $75 per crate in plywood and hardware supplies. This project can be attempted by the beginner, but also offers rewards for the intermediate and experienced craftsperson. [ 454 more words ]
