Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #4: Time to make some sawdust

07-27-2016 01:30 AM by EarlS | 0 comments »

I don’t have any 8/4 or 12/4 to make the legs and side aprons. Online 12/4 X36 square blanks are very expensive ($40 on Rockler) plus most of them are glued up. So I decided to make them from existing 6/4 and 4/4 stock. When the changes were made, I needed roughly 20 BF of 4/4 and 20 BF of 6/4 cherry for the legs, side aprons, various stretchers, as well as the drawer fronts and the back rail. I also needed some 5/4 square walnut spindles and some 4/4 square walnut spindles. The 4/...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 2 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #5: Fitting hardware and mortising out crossmembers.

07-25-2016 08:21 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

It doesn’t seem like it but I put in a long day and got a lot done. I put the main runners together and fit the hardware. Then measured again and did some layout work. I was then able to cut the cross members. Once I had that done I started to cut out the main runners to accept the crossmembers. These will be all threaded as well as glued. Any members have any tips for boring thru main runners and cross members? The paint turned out really nice.

Entertainment Center #2: Cabinent #3 Carcass

Downstairs entertainment center project proceeding fairly well though the shop is still a cluttered mess of in process projects and storage (typical move something to move something to be able to work story, though things are improving). I cut and assembled carcass for cabinet #3. Though I have a mistake to fix ;-) Original Project Sketches I’m not a Sketch-up user for my woodworking projects. Guess I’m still old school. I prefer a quad pad and pencil or a white board durin...

After watching the DVD several time it was time to start this. The seat is the first thing to build and start carving on.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1750: Making Do

07-25-2016 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Having limited means can completely shut some people down. For others, it serves as a challenge – not only to meet, but often to be completely conquered. For them, having less doesn't mean giving up, but trying harder and often coming out of the situation even better than expected. It can be surprising what one can accomplish with a bit of determination. I grew up with limited means. My parents were divorced when I was very young (at a time when 'divorce' was neither co...
