What'd you make today? - April 5, 2013, 06:57 PM

I feel like motorcyclist are a tinkering bunch and given the response to the shed thread, I figured we could use one for stuff you make. It can be anything from a shed to a part, just general interest tinkering and home engineering type stuff. Post up what you've got



From example, this is the last little home project I did. For some reason I thought it would be fun to build it with a hammer for old time's sake or some nostalgic bullshit. Terrible idea and probably the last thing I build without a nail gun. R-19 insulation all around, thermostat controlled fan, roof hinges off for cleaning etc...









Here's the mini project for today- Had to whip up some skateboard wheel sliders for the track day this weekend since my new ones didn't make it here on time. Props to Jason at Brooks Cycle's for hooking it up with the drill press on short notice.

Well, I didn't build anything, but I did demo a wooden porch to make room for a stone patio. To make it a workout, I only used a sledgehammer.

Uh, hand cut. Yeah, that's it. These were routered but I have talked to the guy who teaches the hand cut dovetail class at leesburg woodcraft and want to give that a shot. It's such a pain to set up the router for it and hand done would be pretty cool. It might help me rise above pure hack status.

Dude, don't forget you've got another one coming. Mostly ready, just a few minor things left to do. Just let me know when you're ready to pick it up or I could drop it by DSA on the 21st when I head to Taskers.

What ever is easiest for you. This one will be kept at DSA and be my primary work bench. It's so much easier to get stuff done when you have a nice sturdy work bench
