Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #2: Case Construction

10-31-2014 03:56 PM by Matthew | 1 comment »

Alright, lets get started. The goal today was to get the case dry fitted, and that means cutting the mitered edge dovetails. here is what the goal is: The point of this joint is to get a nice through dovetail, without the butt joint in the front. I want the nightstand to be mitered on both the front and back of the case, so we have 16 miters to cut. We’ll start with our panels glued up, flattened and cut to final size: Now, with a marking gauge set for the panel thickn...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #30: Recycling

10-31-2014 02:26 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

This last week or two, my time has been severely curtailed, whilst supporting my Wife who is starting up a new business, but without some form of woodwork, I would go nuts, therefore I have been using up some of the reclaimed mahogany, I collected from around the garden when we moved in, it had been disguarded like firewood, an absolute waste…well it was, until I came along! I denailed it, stripped the paint off and put it into store, now it has come out, and some has been used to make...

Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #1: Intro

10-31-2014 02:17 PM by Matthew | 0 comments »

Ok Jocks, this blog series will cover a nightstand I am building based on a Krenov display cabinet (for the inside) and Nkashima’s “Rose's Night Stand”. The design is mostly in my head, so I dont have any formal drawings or a sketchup file, but the overall dimensions will be 14”D x 16”W x 27”H. Here is a picture of the inspiration.. And the inside of the Nightstand will have a shelf and 3 drawers. The case will be made with mitered edge dovetails, an...

Shop's Log #15: Saw Sharpening Clamp

10-31-2014 11:31 AM by terryR | 5 comments »

Hi everyone, Welcome to another blog WITHOUT pipes. LOL. I’ve finally decided to take the walk down the saw sharpening path…have been putting it off for over a year! I fully expect a rocky beginning, but hope the trail eases out with time. Luckily, you LJ’s are full of information and love to share. My initial attempts at re-shaping teeth were an abomination to the craft due to lack of fresh reading, and NOT even knowing how to properly adjust my Veritas saw filing jig...

History #2: French Furniture History

10-31-2014 11:09 AM by VobliX | 0 comments »

Think of afternoons in the vineyards of Bordeaux, a leisurely stroll on the French Riviera, or a cafe’ au lait in a Parisian cafe. No one lives as well as the French. Art, romance, fine food, and wines, the French know how to make life beautiful and comfortable. Their sensibility emanates from their homes where they enjoy furnishings and decorative arts that span centuries of great style. From Medieval times to the present, there is much to know about how to identify the distinctive loo...

Woodworking For Therapy #23: Woodworkers Fighting Cancer - Yes, You Can Help!

10-31-2014 07:27 AM by Steve Kreins | 4 comments »

Since this post in the Coffee Lounge got zero, zip, nada response, I thought I’d place it in a blog post. Come on guys! You can build one of these toy boxes in a few hours! It’s a great cause and it hits close to home for me! A year ago when I started woodworking I was disappointed that I missed the Annual Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Fund Raiser. I really didn’t expect to have a chance to actually participate this year, but here I am, thank God. For each entry, corporate...

Jorge came up with this variation of the chalk fitting method. Chalk is rubbed on to the arch pattern. The chalk is left on the high spots Scraping ...

JHome Depot had better be careful

10-31-2014 05:23 AM by OldWrangler | 29 comments »

I usually try not to express my opinions about Religion or Politics but here’s an item that should not go unnoticed. The management of HD has been cornered into making all employees take a course in Sensitivity Training for Muslim Customers. Seems like our current administration is going to force us to give this minority group of “wack jobs” a whole new level of service. But why Home Depot? Their demographic customer base hardly applies to the Muslims. When have you seen or...
