Adobe brick making #1: Trial mixes

02-04-2009 12:41 PM by daltxguy | 13 comments »

Several years ago now, my partner and I took a 1 week course on building with adobe bricks/cob. We are lucky here in New Zealand that some hard working people developed approved building standards for adobe brick construction. Our instructor, Richard Walker was one of the people responsible for this standard. Our forest property sits on some ideal clay soil and we are interested in sourcing our new construction entirely from materials found on or near the site, so adobe should figure somew...

New house building project #4: Glass doors for the 6 medicine cabinets

09-07-2008 07:06 AM by PaBull | 9 comments »

Today I was busy making the glass doors for the medicine cabinets for all the bathrooms in the house. I thought I might as well share the fun with you guys. First thing I had to do after I cut the styles and rails, was make a jig to do the coping on the router table. My router table is build in with the table saw, very basic. Here some pictures of that jig. The pictures are not the best, I took them with my PDA, sorry. The jig rides against the edge of the table. Now here...

I’ve have been working on a clients home that has entailed several different projects/phases. One of the things being done is upgrading most if not all of the trim through out this 7300 sq. ft. home. Next is doing the front entry and hall. There are two archways, one arched bi-fold (both sides), and an arched front door. Seven arches total with three different radius’s.

Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

01-30-2013 04:52 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 6 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

DIY that adds Value to your Property #1: DIY adds more value you think

04-22-2015 06:20 PM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 5 comments »

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging thing so please bear with me if this article isn’t quite up to Shakespearean standard just yet! This is my first blog post so I thought I’d make it about something that’s been interesting me as of late. Firstly, my main job is a real estate agent. So I guess you can say my main job is slightly boring! However, the last 3-4 years of so I’ve actually started taking up small DIY jobs in and around the house. My boyfriend has never been very good with thi...
