Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

864 days ago by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

Cutting Boards #5: Sanding, routing, sanding...

852 days ago by MolokMot | 2 comments »

The cutting board as seen in the picture below is just about complete. Just needs a little more sanding and finish. Since the last post, here are the steps completed: Using my dewalt random orbit sander I went through both 60 and 100 grit. After that I used what I believe to be a half inch round over in several passes. I left one side a much lighter pass then the other so that the cutting board can be used either way depending on the taste of its new owner. After routing, I went thro...

My First Workbench #18: Day 18: The big dry fit!

702 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the picture heavy version of this post, please click here! Very excited today because I got a lot accomplished! I ended with a dry fit of the entire bench and started work on the leg vise. To get started, I finished sawing the bridle joint on the last leg…best cuts to date! Straight as an arrow!When the last legs were cut, I grabbed the rubber mallet and chisels and hacked out the joints in about 10 minutes. So much faster than before! Sharp chisels are a joy to wor...

Bandsaw box #4 #1: A larger box

667 days ago by ybotyawnoc | 2 comments »

So I bought a lump of wood from some guy on eBay. It was listed as being a piece of iroko, but I had my doubts. Anyway, at less than £6 I thought I’d give it a go. This is the eBay listing photo: I took it down to my friend’s shop (I don’t yet have a jointer), to plane the roughsawn edges off, and here’s what was underneath: Now, to me, that looks more like elm than iroko. But I don’t know much about it tbh. Anyway, I’m going to make a slightly bigg...

Plywood template-cut rocking bench. #1: Sort of a late entry...

582 days ago by Fridgecritter | 2 comments »

I started this project because I saw a really cool contemporary rocking bench on the internet, and wanted to tweak the design a little so it fit my wife’s needs. The original design was a bit low to the ground for our taste. Here is the original design: So I thought about how I would do the same chair, only a little higher off the ground. I knew I wanted the grain of the plywood to show vertically as you are looking at the...

[Moxon Mini-bench] Save thy back.

499 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Well, after stooping over to cut three of the four dovetail joints for the project I’m working on, I realized two things—-(1) I take a long time to join (I’m averaging about an hour and a half) and (2) that much time stooped over the leg vise is killing my back in the cold (30-40*) garage! So I tooled around the internet looking for solutions to my problem, all the while trying to keep calm, because that ticking clock in the back of my head is getting insistent that I get a...

30 projects in 30 days #12: Nightmare on Wall Street

1863 days ago by scottb | 2 comments »

I’ve posted two Wall Street twist models recently, and tonight I tried my hand at a click version of the same pen. Tonight for project #24…. First up was cocobolo, a lovely brownish striped wood, when turned it looks purple and orange, and returns to rich browns when exposed to air and finished with oil… at least it normally does. – this piece is half caramel and cocoa, and half… umm, fruit stripe gum. If it didn’t brown at all, it’d make a ...
