More working with Pine #10: Getting close to the finish line....

06-07-2016 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, got the armrests done.. The square part didn’t ake all that long to chop out. The round hole? Forstner bit. So, when the armrest settles down over the tenon on the top of the front post, the post will get “housed” in the round hole….more places to add glue. I also chopped a mortise in each of the rear posts. Armrest would then slip into that mortise, and onto the tenon. I drilled a through hole through that rear post, in the center of the mor...

Workshop Do Over #3: Cleaning House

05-10-2011 10:08 PM by Ken Fitzpatrick | 3 comments »

Well I figured I better give a quick update. Our plan forward is to get rid of everything that will not stay. Guess I’ve been a bit of a pack rat over the last few years and it is time to give it up. My utility trailer is loaded for the second time and will hit the landfill at 8 tomorrow morning. We have a lot of recycle piles there so please don’t think we aren’t doing that because we are. I’m even getting rid of the old tools I don’t use anymor...

Santas and stuff

06-03-2011 05:45 PM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy the past several weeks since I finished the cane, just working on miscellaneous fun things. My daughter is refinishing an old dresser she rescued from the trash and I had to replace a couple of missing drawers. So I got to figure out how to use the dovetail jig someone gave me (it makes a big difference if you use the correct size bushing!). I used my table saw a lot, so I decided to make a Gripperz style push-block that turned out well. That, combined with some diffe...

Rocking Chair Build #1: Stop wanting, and start doing!

09-13-2011 07:14 AM by Topapilot | 3 comments »

Hey gang! It’s been a while, but I’m back in the shop making scrap and creating a ton of dust. Over the years I’ve made bookcases and tables galore, all with straight lines and square corners. Then I started making some G+G pieces with rounded edges, cloud lifts, and ‘pillowed’ plugs. I’ve been wanting to continue this progression and make something with no straight lines at all: a Maloof-style rocking chair following the steps from Hal Taylor. Today...

Building my Workbench #2: My (almost) Final Design... maybe... sorta

08-31-2016 04:35 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

Well I’m back. In this entry, I’ll be showing you my design and going over why I made some of the decisions that I did and why I’m still kinda floundering on a couple more. So, on with it! Here’s a view of my 3D model. As you can see it’s very similar to a split top Roubo. I tried to decide for months whether or not to put a tool tray in and whether or not to make it a split top. I ultimately decided that I definitely need a tool tray. There is alw...

Calm out of chaos - My Shop Build #3: Heavy Metal

10-03-2016 04:53 AM by TheBossQ | 3 comments »

I played football in high school. I remember hitting the weight room every day after school. It was nothing more than a giant concrete cube, with Metallica, among others, blaring through the space. Metallica, to this day, is still one of my favorite bands to listen to when I’m getting physical. I have a Metallica channel on Pandora and I like to play that when I’m working in my shop. But that’s not the Heavy Metal that this is all about. . I’m referring to steel....
