Finally done with Christmas

2020 days ago by Rustic | 2 comments »

Well, I am finally finishing up Christmas gifts. My wife’s lap desk is drying as I speak. Will post a pic of it tomorrow. Now I am in the planning stages of making a saw blade organizer for my new dado blade set. It looks like i’ll be using the dado set to make it’s holder. (How ironic). Will post pics of that when I am done as well. Santa’s Wokshop is closed for the season. Whew!!! Keep the sawdust flyin

Bed Construction #2: Building phase OVER

1680 days ago by Vincent Labreche | 2 comments »

Hi, So here is post #2 of my bed construction series. After a tough week (was knocked down by the influenza for a few days), I managed to finish all of the building work on this bed. I must admit that I am very pleased with the results. The only thing left is to:-Fine sand some of the rougher areas-Apply the finish As a matter of fact, I am no expert in finishing techniques, so I am asking LJ: What finish would you use to preserve the natural feel and color of the wood, while using...

Box O' Tricks

1499 days ago by ChuckV | 2 comments »

About four months ago, I took a two-day class with Steve Latta. We built a dovetailed box with some inlay and a veneered lid. The idea was to learn a number of techniques in this one project. The box sat in my home workshop nearly finished since then. I knew that there were some problems with it. In the class, I was not able to work at my usual glacial pace and still keep up well enough to get everything that I could out of the class. A few days ago, I decided to complete the box an...

Good evening to all. The cool weather that we experienced a few weeks ago has quickly disappeared and summer is back here in north Georgia with another week to 10 days of afternoons in the mid-90’s. The leaves are turning slightly but enough to notice. Autumn and spring are my favorite times of the year here in north GeorgiaI found a Rigid TS3650 table saw on Craig’s list and made the two hour drive up into the foothills of the Smokies to take a look at it. I believe the fella sai...

My First Workbench #11: Day 11: Mortises, Tenons, Sharpening, oh my!

689 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Please click here for the version with pictures. After a few friendly reminders, I realize that it is indeed time to take a break and sharpen my chisels before I continue. I want to make sure the mortises are as sharp and clean as I can make them to ensure a good fit with the tenons. To do that, I need to get rid of the (gasp) factory edge that has so far lived on the tip of my chisels. To do that I decided to make a little sharpening station, based off of something I saw in Dan’...

553 days ago by DustyMark | 2 comments »

With Rum’s assembly jig complete, I was free to make the actual top crest. I realized that this particular piece of 12/4 cherry is from an old friend who had been a P-40 pilot in WWII. He officiated my promotion ceremony to Lt Col before he passed over a decade ago. Layout Holes are drilled and the curve is marked. Cutting Making the cut. I should have cut more to the outside the line on the inside curve. I dipped in with the cut at one point and by the time I cl...

After scoring some free criagslist wall cabinets I took the time to rethink what actually goes on in the shop and how much an open assembly area is needed for my larger items like beds, benches, and tables.
