Not so cheap Table: part three

04-02-2013 07:09 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, fought with sizing the mortises to the tenons. Decided to just cut the mortises, and then adjust the tenons to each mortise. Got the long aprons glued up As for that top sitting behind them? That is the underside of the top. Went to add the short tenons to the assembly…...OOPS! Bloody things were too long! had to back up, measure for the right size, and recut the tenons. Pattern turned out to be a little on the long side. Save that for another table proje...

Kitchen Cabinet Build #1: About the Planning Phase...

05-20-2013 02:33 PM by Brohymn62 | 3 comments »

I have spent most of the year slowly reading through material and gather ideas for this build. I have also been slowly acquiring the last bits of equipment that I thought I’d need to get the job done, the last of which was a router table attachment for my table saw. I’m sure that more stuff will be needed as I move through the process but I am confident I have most of what I need. I have focused most of the planning around the ideas from Bob Lang’s Book “The Complete K...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #19: Details, details....

08-03-2013 06:21 PM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

As I closed in the bouyancy tanks I wasn’t really happy with the fit of the lid. I’d allowed a little wiggle room in the width of the top to line everything up nicely (I’m learning not to just rely on measuring:-) so I’d expected some over lap. The funny part is when I got things nailed down the overlap wasn’t all on one side. One the starboard side I’d nailed the inboard bulkhead first for the whole length and then pushed and pulled to fit the top to th...

"The Woodwright's Shop" Episode Review #6: That old bodger, Roy Underhill can go sit on a tree!

09-20-2013 09:15 PM by StumpyNubs | 3 comments »

The next installment in my episode by episode, wise cracking review of the greatest television show ever… “This is the program that asks the question, can the twentieth century person make for themselves, from a tree, a rocking chair and sit in it? The answer you will soon see is yes.” As a twenty-first century person, I am quite sure that I have the skills to accomplish all sorts of things. I can burp the alphabet, drink a cold one through a hole in the side of the can, even win ...

carving in horn, #1: Carving in horn(raindeer) in progress.

11-07-2013 09:13 PM by koraile | 3 comments »

Carving in horn is qute fun, its hard as stone, but the end result is quite Nice. A trick my grandfather learned me is to boil the horn in milk for a couple of hours before starting to carve the patterns. In the bottom of the caseroll i putt some Wood sticks to prevent the bone toutching metal and getting burned. It just needs to barely boil for a couple of hours. This makes the bone get softer for short time and i can do the rough carving, i preffer to do the finish when its Cold ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1437: Half Way There

11-04-2014 12:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was a busy, yet positive day. Mondays are always busy because we have the trip to the post office, the bank, shopping and the gym. I like getting these things out of the way though and it puts me on a good track for the rest of the week. I was really anxious to get home though, as I couldn't wait to begin cutting out my new designs. Because of all the errands though, I didn't get started until mid afternoon. I decided to do the sleighs using maple for the sleigh be...

Norms Router Cabinet #7: Router Table Top Design

10-16-2008 12:04 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

I have been working out the design for the top for my router cabinet. I am going to build the fence as per Norms plans, the outside slots. But I am also going to use an Incra Original Jig and fence system, the T-tracks sitting behind the router plate. The design of the cabinet is not offset for the Incra Original jig , so I had to make the back bulge out about 5 1/2” to accommodate jig and it’s base panel. I have been thinking about modifying the bulge so it is attached to ...

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #2: Head board half way around.

04-06-2009 11:59 AM by Junji | 3 comments »

This is my first rustic project, and now I know a little bit of log wood difficulty. It took so long to peel the skin, and after that, I wondered how to make the tenon out of these irregular shape logs. So looked around the internet and found there are products call log tenon cutter, or log tenon jig, but not so easy to get these in Japan, and if I order it by internet from US, it will take a long time and extra money for shipping. I looked some video of log tenon jig using router, I thought ...

Craftsman Dining Room Set - In The Beginning...

04-23-2009 06:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Due to my ignorance with LJ blogging, the next installment is here. So, I’ve got my girlfriend’s permission to start working on our new dining room set. I’ve done a ton of research, and for me, Schroeder hit the nail right on the head. He’s been extremely helpful with suggestions, suggested reading, and tool purchases to make the process go smoother. I will build his table. I’m still researching the chairs, but the Rodel chair is high in the running. I...
