In the wood shop today #36: Glue up, live edge desk, rocking chair course

01-01-2015 03:00 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments » In the video I walk through my fine wood working shop while discussing the projects I have on the go. I’m typically building dining chairs, bar stools or rocking chairs. I also teach a 1 on 1 course where we both build a beautiful rocking chair! Happy new year!

I finished up the cigar box guitar I started in the last video, which you can watch here: I play it at the end as well. I’ve never played one before and I am still trying to get used to using a slide. Watch the video here:

Mortise & Tenon Table with Shelf and Treble Clef Inlays

02-11-2015 05:49 PM by CypressAndPine | 2 comments »

This is my first attempt at something like this. I am building a table for my wife’s grandmother. She is a violin instructor and she asked for a little table with a shelf to hold violin cases. The table is Cypress and the inlay is Sapele. I picked up 3 each 4/4 cypress boards that were 14 feet long. Here is my rough plan. This is my own design and I tend to change things as I go. Here are the aprons with the shoulders cut. I cut all my stuff on the bandsaw. I don’...

Finding out about a desk

07-25-2007 04:29 AM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

My sweety procured a desk, under the condition that we figure out how to remove it from the house it was coming from, thinking that we’d use it for the wood. It’s got a typewriter lift, so it’s definitely pre-computers and probably pre-electric typewriters, and as we’ve dug into it, even though we don’t need a desk, we’ve started wondering whether we should cut it up for lumber or try to restore it. The vertical pieces are all solid wood, the top and dra...

"Etchings That Come From Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

08-30-2007 12:56 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Etchings That Come From Wood ....and so twas at the closure of an-other day, while out walking my feet in forests of green, that the clomp-clomp mistaken plop-plop of rattled brain fraze, was awakened by the desire before my eyes of one such as you…. —-where i was coming from was of no-consequence before your ire, and that you had called to lead me here was now understood, since your trunk of structure gave me soundings of the rage, that was gathered inside your wood of stee...

Only the small stuff left to do...

10-02-2007 04:38 AM by RobH | 2 comments »

Well, in an effort to get these shelves done before the long awaited visit of my parents, I took off a little from work today and I went to finish the installation. No problem getting finished. While there, the homeowner approached me an we talked about adding more adjustable shelves to the unit. She feels she needs the shelves to handle all of the books she has. I am supposed to take care of the cost through the contractor. That should be no big deal. My main question in my head is whe...

Shop, Tools and Jigs #1: Croaker's Shop

01-13-2008 05:39 PM by Croakermea | 2 comments »

My shop sits in the third bay of our garage. I spread out into the middle bay when I need more room. When snow is in the forecast, the John Deere tractor with a plow blade has to squeeze in also (it’s there now). The table saw was a Christmas present and required some reorganization to make it fit, not to mention running the 220 power. The table saw, and the three cabinets visible in the pictures are all on wheels so that I can set things up quickly. My main work surface is the rolli...

Well, back is giving me fits tonight. I tried to get at least one corner test fitted. Soooo, here we go.. had the lines all marked out, but needed a decent saw to cut the pins for the dovetails…..had a panel saw, 10 ppi, seemed to be sharp. tried it out, just splitting some lines.. Saw isn’t all that big, maybe 20” or less. Came from a hardware company up in Cleveland,OH. Seemed to do a decent enough job.. Well, after all the lines were sawn….I clam...
