A Special Unicorn Project #6: Time To Start Ironing Out The Details

10-06-2010 01:55 PM by William | 3 comments »

Well, as usual, my wife is always right. I told her with my doctor’s appointments and all for Monday and Tuesday, that I wasn’t even going to try going to the shop. I was just going to take it easy. She told me as she was walking out the door Monday to go pick the kids up from school that I’d be over there doing something. She was right. I just couldn’t stand it. I was painting before she got back home. What you see above is the first coat of paint on the unicorn and t...

Christmas Boxes #3: Almost done

12-05-2010 03:05 PM by Zuki | 3 comments »

I’m at the final stages of the build. The next step was to assemble the drawers. Nothing fancy . . . I just butted the pieces together with a little homemade glue and nailed them them with 23g pin nails. The button pull on the front are actually oak button plugs that I had left over from another project. I drilled a hole through the drawer front (after finding the center), drilled a hole in the back of the pull and then screwed it on from the back of the drawer front. DW then r...

Not exactly my style but I thought it a very cool design by a student.

Deluxe Router Station #1: The Deluxe Router Station

11-10-2011 11:30 PM by bachambers | 3 comments »

I’ve nearly completed with Norm’s Deluxe Router Station, which has been fun but challenging. Of course like any other project, I planned on having it completed and be onto the next thing by now, but unfortunately there isn’t enough time in the days, weeks or months! And now it’s cold in the shop, which is why I’m sitting here typing this blog, rather than out in the shop finishing the darn thing! So the story begins several months ago as I was in desperate n...

The Perfect Deal

11-04-2012 02:07 AM by Dave Carlisle | 3 comments »

I was on the trail of some black walnut for a table project and did I ever find it! 800 BF stored in a farmer’s barn for 20 years. Most 12-14” wide and 12-14’ feet long. Some pieces 10/4. Paid $600 for the whole stack. My lifetime supply!! :)

Building a Thos. Moser Design New Gloucester Rocking Chair #6: Laminating a Curved Leg Brace

12-24-2012 06:01 PM by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Advantages of a Laminated Chair Brace Thos. Moser makes good use of laminated leg braces in his chair designs in lieu of chair rungs between the legs. The final product has much cleaner lines and is quite strong. The beauty of this approach is that the legs are allowed to flex on uneven floors. I have a set of six chairs that I made in 1993 that used laminated braces. Not one leg joint has loosened after almost 20 years of constant use. Here’s a photo of a brace on an East...

Workbench Build #4: More work on the vise plus a failed trip to the local mill...

02-04-2013 05:52 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

This morning I went over to my bosses house so we could weld up the bolt bracket for the leg vise. He had some scrap plate metal on hand and a plasma cutter (want one lol). He made quick work of the job and within an hour I have a rough plate with a large bolt attached to it. He left it up to me to clean it up and drill the mounting holes plus I owe him lunch tomorrow heh. He ALSO gave me a practically new angle grinder so I can cut up the 6’ rod to length so that is a bonus. eit...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #5: Case Legs

05-04-2013 12:28 PM by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Case Legs Watch this video to view the leg construction and track my progress on the face frame. I like legs that are cut in two planes on a tall case like Dr. White’s chest. This gives the legs a more fully formed look. I used a wider lower rail with a mortise and tenon joint at the base of the face frame rather than a narrow piece with a dovetail joint. Our vacuum floor attachment will still reach under the face of the case to suck up dust balls! The sides of the original Dr. Whit...
