Weather Station #3: Fitting the instruments

03-11-2009 05:43 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

I thought about these next steps all day today. This is another great thing about woodworking. I always have something to think about, something to plan, something to look forward to. This is turning out to be a fun little project. Next step is to figure out the style of base and top. I’m debating whether (pun) to do a pivoting top or a hinged top like a box lid. In either case I’m thinking about adding small magnets to hold it in place. It will give me something to think a...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #4: Sides...

08-27-2009 07:16 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

I sanded the appropriate parts of the parts (don’t sand anything that mates with another part, it will round the edge over and ruin the joint). I then clamped up two sides at a time (because I only have enough clamps for one project). Then, I cut all the rabbets and dadoes in the sides to accept the drawer/shelf. I also plugged the dado on the legs. The next step is to make the mortises for the cross-pieces. Thoughts: address chip-out (tape, backer board, etc.), better edge trea...

Patterns from Photos

11-19-2009 01:57 AM by KCKID | 3 comments »

Well I have showed off some of my carvings and now I would like to start an entry and open some dialoge on developing patterns from photos. I ran into a program that will take a photo and turn it into a line drawing where I can then use as a pattern. Has anyone else ever done anything like this?I plan on displaying a couple of relief carvings that I did this way in my projects.

Part 1

02-15-2010 10:48 AM by Brad | 3 comments »

So here is my start of the restoration of the Stanley #3 and #4. I picked these up after going to pick up an air filter from a guy on Craigslist and low and behold he had a few planes he didn’t mind selling me for $15 for both. I’m going to try and include some videos on here as well since I know we all love seeing those! My goals are to bring these beauties back to life bright and shinning and creating some paper thin shavings. The blades look decent still and after cleaning w...

Let's Make Bandings of Wood Inlay #3: How to make Wood Inlay Bandings like the Buffard Freres of Paris

11-28-2010 06:32 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“Never underestimate the power of a single thought.” Ender Ilkay…(1966 – ) Salesman and Friend When I first saw these beautiful bandings I felt the excitement and the desire to learn similar to what I first felt when serving my woodworking apprenticeship. Obviously, these patterns are so remarkably unique. I thought to myself that these are truly great designs of highly trained craftsman who took the craft of woodworking to a much higher level. The Buffard Frere...

Roubo Cabinet #9: Framed Backpanel

05-25-2011 06:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 3 comments »

I have a fully joined carcase with partitions for five drawers, but it’s only got two sides, a top and a bottom. ie: it needs a backside! Options I’ve thought about include a series of half-lap boards nailed into a rabbet at all four edges, and a floating frame and panel. Because one of these is necessarily more difficult to do than the other, you can likely guess which one I’ve chosen… I started work with material selection. For the frame I’ve used a pretty non-descript (re: crappy) piece...

Things I have been doing. #2: Not feeling well

07-07-2011 03:04 PM by CherieLee | 3 comments »

Did a bit of cutting and wood prep yesterday, but a summer cold is trying to take hold and I have had much of a headache. So its chicken soup and whatever else I can find to take this bad taste from my mouth. A day of rest ya might say. Do not know if I will get much done.
