a small writing desk start to finish #4: Base is almost done ( in poplar)

04-10-2011 02:33 AM by drewnahant | 0 comments »

This has been going a bit slower than I expected, I just dont have as much time for my personal projects as I would like. But today, I got the whole day in the shop, YAY! Here’s the base, 3/8 mortise and tennons on all leg joints, all hand cut since i dont have a tablesaw tennon jig, or a mortiser, and I cut the two sets of dovetails for the back of the drawer, the front has to wait until I laminate up the face. Earlier this week, I took an hour to make a form out of some plywood...

First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw #4: Caster and pre assembly note

03-05-2012 12:41 PM by psient | 0 comments »

I am ready to finish the mobile base for the new table saw. I have the saw platform completed as well as the caster mounting plates. Initially I was going to install casters relying on a large thumbwheel for leveling. After consideration I changed to a design that uses a built-in ratchet to raise and lower the leveling foot. Final assembly relies upon getting my new welder up and running. I’ll be getting the gas today. After that, it’s a matter of attaching the caste...

My First Workbench #13: Day 13: Dry fit the base!

08-25-2012 01:54 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

As usual, for the pictures, click here. Today was very exciting! I decided to finish the base joinery prep once and for all and powered through the last 3 tenons and mortises. I wrapped up with a dry run of the base and I am very happy with the results (though there are a few minor glitches to take care of tomorrow…more on that below). To begin with, I was not at all thrilled with continuing the tenon cutting. I have been using a makeshift saw horse (2 pieces of offcuts from t...

Years of Woodworking #5: Experience with budgeting

03-02-2013 04:50 AM by Doug Scott | 0 comments »

Try budgeting in this economy is not an easy task, but over the years one learns to do just what he has to do to keep his head above water, ( Go without ) As you all know it has not been easy since this economy has taken a down turn. Not to point fingers at any one person or persons is what most of us lower income people have to do most of our lives is budget our money. ( should this have to be explained any more to make my point ) Now , I am self-employed, and how long would I have my job...

Rocket Bookcase #1: The Design

08-17-2013 12:03 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Wallowing the success of the princess castle bookcase, I quickly realized that with our third child due in February, it was high time to make Keaton a bookcase of his while I can. It’s too cold in the winter for painting and finishing, so with Sara’s blessing, I finalized the design and began gathering materials. Here’s the idea: Keaton loves…I mean LOVES rockets. We have a narrow but tall space in his room that just begs for something like a narrow boo...
