Barrister Book Case Tutorial #4: Allow me to introduce myself...

1791 days ago by Scarcraig01 | 2 comments »

I thought I would take a time out from the tutorial and introduce myself and provide some information on my background and experience. My interest in building things and tools started around the age of 11. My grandpa was always puttering around in the garage messing with tools etc. and I was often out there with him. Also, a guy in our neighborhood had a Shopsmith and was always working on a project. I use to hang out in his garage for hours and bug the hell out of him! One day a fr...

Garden Gate III #7: The inner laminates

1678 days ago by newTim | 2 comments »

On my first gate the panel was held in place with stays based on the David Marks project. The second gate used rabbet like a picture frame. For this project I decided to go back to the stays. They are not hard to make as you can use the gate itself as a form. While I was prepping the stock for the outer laminates I made an extra set for the inner laminates. The only trick is the measure the length of the inner arch. I used a flex tape, but could have used a string or other flexible item...

Baby Tender #3: Rockers almost ready

1553 days ago by mpmitche | 2 comments »

Here is a pic of the skeg screwed onto the hull and the rockers mocked up. I still need to drill the rockers for the 1” dowel that connects them. Once this is done everything can get the final sanding and be attached. It’s finally starting to look like a rocker.

When ideas come to mind, I find it imperative that I should try to work it out. The least I can do is to make a sketch or visualization of what that idea is all about, lest it goes to waste. The lowly saw horse is an example. There are many versions, from simple to complex. Some are easy to build the others require more advance skills. My version I would think is fairly easy. The illustrations were done with “Wing...

Corner Inlay Table #12: Almost there...The big reveal!

1241 days ago by Rick | 2 comments »

Took a breath, gave the table tops some time, and then took the tape off. Even with some of the lessons learned regarding the mask, there were some places the stain was able to sneak under the over-laps, but some more where it didn’t. Next – I have to put the second part of the stain recipe on the larger base, and tone the smaller base a bit darker. Will probably have that same adjustment on the larger base But overall, they’re coming together. F...

Board Game Table #1: Making a table

1040 days ago by ChadR | 2 comments »

So I finally started the project I had wanted to build for a while. A table just for playing board games. I had originally thought of making it 4 feet by 6 feet but found it would be way to huge, so i scaled down to 4 feet by 3 feet. I have no completed the side walls and surface of the table, even putting on a felt top and dying the side walls blue and yellow.

Trials and Tribulations #4: New Project - 2 Screw-ups in Under 30 Minutes

947 days ago by DamnYankee | 2 comments »

Started working on a cribbage board for my Grandfather. I am using some walnut he sent me. I printed out a hole pattern. The pattern I’m using did not fit on one piece of 8.5×11 paper so I had to print one end and then the other with a significant portion of the pattern overlapping. Easy enough, print both pages, align and tape together. No problem right? So I printed the two pages out, lined them up, taped them together. Then using painters tape, I taped the pattern to ...

Alright, I’ve got another “batch” of dovetails. I feel like I’m getting a little bit better at it. I was especially proud of the left one on #8… it’s the tightest most gap free one I’ve done yet As always, any helpful comments are much appreciated :-)
